Review of Fateful by Cheri Schmidt


A huge fan of Jane Austen, Danielle hopes to find her own Mr. Darcy when she leaves Colorado to attend art school in London. Of course she knows it's silly to wish for that, naive even. But she's met enough males who lacked respect for women, a growing trend it seemed. And at nineteen...well.... However, on only her second night there she gets lost and is threatened by a stalker who proves to be immune to her martial arts training. Before she is completely overpowered, she is then saved by Ethan Deveroux.

While Danielle does find the romance she seeks in Ethan, he's no Mr. Darcy. Her hero is held by a spell which fractures their chance at a happy ending. During the day Ethan is closer to mortal than immortal and can date her like any other man. Yet, as the sun sets, the powerful magic of an ancient curse returns and the evil of that spell is revealed. When that magic begins, Danielle's fairytale romance ends because Ethan Deveroux is a vampire. 


Oh man did I love this fabulous read.  I am a huge twilight lover and all things gentle vampires.  I am not really into the gory blood draining, shredding humans bit.  This book was about vampires who resist drinking human blood.

I loved the setting, an American girl in London.  Guys with British accents are just sexy, vampire or not:)  I definitely pictured Ethan as a sexy Brit.  I also enjoyed the tension between Ethan and Danielle.

I loved the storyline in this book as well.  It was unique and had many great elements to it, such as the introduction of fairies and their loving nature.  There was a lot of twists and the story never dragged.

This was such a spectacular young adult/ new adult read.  Add this book to your must read list, folks.  Then check out Fractured and Forever in the series.  I give this story five glittery stars!
