Fated by JoAnne Kershaw Review Blitz w Giveaway!
FATED (Vanguard Legacy #3)
by Joanne Kershaw
Published by Xchyler Publishing on April 25th, 2015
Defeated but not vanquished, the foes of light have retreated. But victory came at a terrible cost to Elora Walker, with her friends lost and scattered. Eleven months later and just seventeen, she commands her own Vanguard quad but struggles with a past that won’t release her and a future she hesitates to embrace.
The barriers between worlds continues to weaken, Dark Seekers are emboldened, and David still plans to engulf humanity in eternal night. Elora means to end the threat once and for all but dreads the personal consequences. Will saving the world demand the ultimate sacrifice? And who must pay it?
This review may not be a good justification of this book. I have not read the first two books. *sigh* Yes I know, bad Maghon. LOL Anyways, this is the story of picking up the pieces of the chaos that has happened previously. Elora Walker gets my appreciation and respect for her fight. Seriously, this kid has some moxy. And when the say blood is thicker than water, too bad you can't clean it with clorox because this girl has some seriously cray cray family. And though one part of the fight is won, there's a lot lost. I have a feeling the last book needed a lot of kleenex.
Elora and her friends are battling demons, and she's mostly alone, with her friends splitting up to help keep the madness down. And now, she is also thrown in the deep end with a whole team of Vanguards she is to command. Oh boy. I know I need to catch up on some things. This is just complicated for her. Oh and her ex, who was bad, is now good, freaking hates her on site. LAWD this girl makes me want to hug her. And then, her dad's BFF unleashes the news that daddy dearest is going to bring hell to earth. Oh man. Let me say that this is an excellent story with great action, a heart wrenching drama, some serious betrayals, and a wonderful set of characters.
The world building that I see here is excellent. I know it was more established prior so I seriously need to get my hands on the first two books. Oh the romance, which is normally not my thing, but hot damn of this one works hard to be excellent. The characters are wonderful. The writing is well done and all I can say is I can't wait to go backwards. LOL Sounds funny saying that, but now I wanna read the first two books. :) 5 PAWS!!
