The Fateful Trilogy continues with Fractured. No, it’s not called Fractured because Ethan and Danielle break case you were wondering.

They had thought they’d escaped most of the danger surrounding them, when in truth they’ve made it worse by unintentionally sparking a civil war amongst vampires. Many vampires want to protect them for discovering the cure to the curs

This romantic fairytale isn’t all that it’s made out to be. I love how there's vampires wanting to be a human not the other way around. I also love Ethan’s, Danielle's Mr. Darcy, charm with a dash of wit. He can dance, cook, and more. I understand why Danielle doesn't like doctors, we are alike like that. I enjoyed reading those scenes. Cheri Schmidt was developed a world that has pulled me in.
Danielle has it the hardest in this book, more than any one. My heart snapped in a million of piece at

I am very glad that I won this book in First Reads. Cheri Schmidt entranced me with the continuation of Ethan and Danielle's story.

Cheri has written a vampire romance story for OLDER teens. This book explores the relationship of Ethan and Danielle on a differnet level. At the end of the last book, Ethan is cured from his vampirism and they are able to pursue a "normal" human relationship. It's not that normal because many in the vampire community are unhappy with the cure being discovered and ar
Wow! I just finished Fractured and am impressed, there was a lot going on in this book. Ethan and Danielle seemed to have a little more ease at the end of the last book (even though they were heavily guarded and had curfews) with Ethan being relieved of the curse. Then the attacks on the two just escalate and their future together is rushed as they plan on being married. Then just one thing after another happens and everything seems so dire. Anyway, I like this story, it has that old-fashioned a ...more

This is the second book to Fateful by Cheri Schmidt. I loved this book. I waited for a year or two to read this. I gave up waiting to read this and I wish I had read it earlier. THIS REVIEW IS GOING TO CONTAIN SPOILERS! Sorry guys I tried to write this without but it would have been a crappy review without it.

Guys, how can I possibly express how much I loved this book? This book was an emotional roller coaster. I was happy one minute, confused the next, and ready to die after that. This book bro

*Warning: possible spoilers ahead.*

We join Danielle and Ethan (who is now human) who are now famous for the conversion back to humanity. Most would think this would lead to the happily ever after, but not so in their case. While some most hate that they have found a cure to the curse, others want the cure….badly. While their relationship flourishes, it’s cute to see them interact despite all the chaos their relationship has made. Some portions of Ethan’s romantic side did h

Wow!! If I had any doubts that the Fateful trilogy was like Twilight they got squashed as soon as I started reading Fractured!! Cheri Schmidt has created a unique twist to the common vampire story and I loved the new ideas!! I was taken on an emotional roller coaster and the ride has left me thinking of the book hours after I finished it!! I loved Fractured even more than Fateful!!

You must read Fateful in order to read Fractured and please do not read this review unless you've read Fateful- I do

Okay so this book started off 7,000,000,000,000,000 times better than the first. Well that is my opinion. So the romance is so much more developed between Ethan and Danielle. Instead of the few stolen kisses and feeling guilty about ruined reputation, they go for the more than kisses and Ethan starts to want more than kisses and Danielle is soon agreeing with him.
Lets put it like this; I was on the very edge of my seat when I got to the engagement. I was so thrilled and th

The Fateful series by Cheri A Schmidt has a different and refreshing take on vampires. I like how the vampires are put together and describes. They are more human during the day and more of a bloodthirsty vampire by night.

Danielle is the main character and the one the books follow. This character is such a huge fan of Jane Austen that she herself is Jane Austen to a "T"! Danielle is a huge girly girl, but she took Karate since her parents made her to make her "stronger". She is a very complex ch

Cheri Schmidt offers another thrill ride with this sequel to Fateful. Ethan is trying to settle into his mortal life thanks to Danielle. While he is excited to plan a future with Danielle it seems that he is struggling with the loss of some of his immortal abilities. Danielle strives to overcompensate for the loss with showing him everything that his mortal life has to offer. Although, it appears that being mortal has its disadvantages when you have a army of immortals after you. Many more supe ...more

Unexpectedly dangerous and gripping with captivating characters who will make you forget every other vampire book you have read. Tristan once again grabs your attention and holds it until the very end. Again I am not a huge fan of audio books but Cheri has done well with choosing a narrator who ensures that you still love the story as much as if read on your own. For the second book in a trilogy I expected a little bit slower of a pace in the storyline was delighted at the contrary.

This is an exciting continuation of the first book. Ethan is slowly adjusting to human life with the help of Danielle; however, he regrets the loss of some of his immortal gifts. Ethan and Danielle struggle some with their relationship, they want to keep it pure and healthy. There is also many twists to their relationship in the story as well, the author doesn't make any of the scenes easy to guess.

Danielle and Ethan's relationship will resonate with the reader. They clearly love each other, the

First off this is book two in a three book series. So if you have not read Fateful you will want to read that first.

And the story continues in I loved watching the relationship with Ethan and Danielle grow. Fractured is an exciting read that kept me on my toes with adventure, danger, magic, faeries, romance, some heart break and the unexpected twist and turns. I could not put this book down. I needed to see what happened! At the end I was very surprised at how things were left. I did not expect

LOVED this book! The story picks up where "Fateful" left off. After curing Ethan of the age old curse of the vampire, it appears she and Ethan have either angered vampires who are not happy about the cure, or Danielle is now pursued by other vampires who want her to cure THEM. Amongst all of this danger, the love Danielle and Ethan have for each other is as strong as ever, but waiting until they marry for the intimacy of husband and wife is becoming increasingly difficult. Can they survive the a ...more

This is such a great read! It picks up right after the first book left off. There are so many parts in this book that I can’t stop thinking about. It makes me want to read it over and over again. Ethan and Danielle are finally together but they have so many obstacles that they have to try to overcome. I just love when there is a damsel in distress in a book and this has it. It gets my heart pumping when Ethan has to swoop in and save Danielle. Oh, Ethan and his magical breath. There is j

This book picks up right where Fateful left off. Danielle found the cure to the Vampire Curse, and of course, it's Ethan who has been saved.
There is definitely a lot more action in this book given everything that Ethan and Danielle have to go thru... I think this is what I enjoy most about this series, is that in order for them to have their Happily Ever After, or for all of Eternity, she doesn't have to turn into a Vampire. It's the other way around!!!
I absolutely enjoyed it!

I liked Danielle as a vampire especially when she had the chance to use her self defense skills as one and when she got the chance to strike at Celeste! I really thought that she wouldn't take the the red pill (seems she wasn't sure of it) but in the end she as did Ethan to change back! Will be interested to see what happens to them in the next book.

This is a wonderful sequel to Fateful. I loved it just as much as I did the first. The amount of emotion that I felt toward the fictional characters in this book is incredible... The same theme of love and romance is still potent, and is mixed with an escalated problem and fear continued from the first book. With many unexpected plot twists and turns it keeps you reading. I love the relationship Danielle and Ethan have and continue to maintain throughout the book. I would highly recommend this b ...more

As much as i loved Fateful, Fractured was even better. There were joyful moments and heartbreaking moments and i loved every minute of reading it. I thought the ending to the first book was good, but the ending to this one was superb. I love how all of the books in this series are incredibly romantic, but also funny at just the moments you would want it to be. I would absolutely recommend this book to anyone in need of a good read. but of course i would make them read Fateful first :)

Fractured Review

The 2nd book in the Fateful Series. Continues where Fateful ends. Ethan and Danielle are married and happy but always having to look over their shoulders for impending danger. A lot of vampires don't like the fact that they found a cure for vampirism. The only way to ensure Danielle's safety is for Ethan to be turned again and go on a quest for help. I absolutely love this series so far. 5 stars all the way!

Like the first book in this series, I loved this book. I absolutely love Cheri Schmidt's writing style. If you have yet to read her books, I suggest you start now. I enjoyed that this book wasn't predictable, and included numerous twists and turns. I am anxiously awaiting the final installment of this series.

This was an amazing story! I Read it in 4 hours. If you loved the first one then you will adore this one. Their journey continues. After finding the cure the two love birds are adjusting to a "normal life" I dont want to give anything away but this book will not disappoint. Get ready for another book that draws you in and makes you fall even more in love with the characters!
