Lucas Gray is half Shadow Warrior, half human, and a member of the Brotherhood - a group of assassins tasked with killing  the last purebred Hunter on Earth before she can fullfill a dangerous prophecy. That Hunter's name is Evie Tremain.

Evie is seventeen-years-old, a waitress, and has just discoveredshe is the last in a long line of demon slayers - and an unwilling participant in a war between Hunters and Unhumans that has raged for the last thousand years.

When your fate is already determined, can you fight it?

The reason I picked this book up to read was because it was by Sarah Alderson and I just loved her other book Hunting Lila, and the description sounds so amazing that I just had to check it out. Pair the desription of Fated with the cover and you know it's a book to read.The cover of Fated is absolutely gorgeous and haunting to look at, it really draws you in and it just represents the book so well.
Lucas is half Shadow Warrior, half human and has long vowed his revenge against the Hunters and Lucas has been tasked with the job of killing the last purebred Hunter left,  Evie Tremain. Evie Tremain worked as a waitress and had no idea that she was a Hunter, or even that they existed, that is , until one night when she is attacked as she is leaving work.
Evie learns of the legacy that's been left to her, while Lucas goes undercover for the Brotherhood in an attempt to get close enough to Evie to accomplish his mission. But what happens when feeling come into play?
Fated was an enjoyable to read, Lucas was cute and protective and had to be my favourite character in the whole book. Evie was interesting to read about, though her emotions where a bit too erratic, but her fight scenes were incredibly well writtenand enthralling to read. The plot maitains the readers interest from start to finish with new secrets and information being revealed all throughout Fated and there are plenty of fight scenes to fill any craving for action.
I definitely felt that Fated got better the further into it I read and the last few chapters were my favourite, especially those from Lucas's point of view.

There was just enough snark, steaminess and action to leave the reader deesperately wanting more, especially in the steaminess department!

“If we could harness one of your looks Evie, we could probably do away with weapons altogether.”  

I rate Fated Four out of Five!
