Seventeen-year old Macy Lockhart thought she had it all figured out.

As a Keeper in the ancient organization, the Order of the Moirae, she literally holds fate in her hands. She lives over and over in lives that end tragically; all to further the good of mankind as she does her part to control destiny.
But there’s one lesson that she hasn’t learned well enough. Nothing is e...more

Wow! What an ending! I'm still feeling kind of speechless after finishing this second book in The Bloodstone Saga. Just when it seemed that all had turned out for the best -- BAM! I'll admit that I wasn't quite prepared for it. Those Fates and Keres were so manipulative. But, wait . . . I'm getting ahead of myself.

Book #2 in the Bloodstone Saga did not unfold in any way that I expected. Just when I thought that I had my head around what was driving the plot, everything would change. I enjoyed th...more

1.5/5

This book could've been great. Greek gods are featured; soul mates; reincarnation; and a decent heroine. So what's not to love? What could go wrong?
Turned out, unfortunately, everything could. How the author came up with this mess is beyond me.
Admittedly, the first installment wasn't all that as welll; it lacked in depth, and was below average in terms of characterisation. But the author had room to improve.
The first installment still managed to captivate me and I was close to getting hooke...more

*WARNING* While I try not to "spoil" anything in my reviews, I may use character names and settings in this review that may spoil it for you. You have been warned ;).

Phenomenal! This second book in the Bloodstone series had me riveted from the Homecoming Dance to the Olympian celebration "cliffy" at the end. *insert hairy eyeball directed to Courtney here*
While I really liked "Every Last Kiss", the first book in the Bloodstone series, I couldn't help but feel like there was something pivotal mis...more

Four stars: Fated,the sequel to Every Last Kiss is better than it's predecessor. An exciting new book that delves into Greek mythology. I recommend you pick this one up!
Our heroine Macy returns in Fated. This time things are different. Further encounters with the two mystifying priests, Annen and Ahmose, awaken more of her submerged memories. The mists of time wisp away and Macy discovers her true identity. She is Harmonia, a minor Greek goddess, daughter of two of Mt. Olympus' most famous gods....more
Emma (BelleBooks)
First of all I want to say a massive THANK YOU!!! to the author, Courtney Cole who very kindly asked me if I wanted a review copy of Fated!
This is my third Courtney Cole book, and her writing has never disappointed me yet!

This is the second book in the Bloodstone Saga and it starts up pretty much where we left Macy after everything that happened in Every Last Kiss.

After everything that Macy went through in the first book you would think that she could finally sit back, relax and have a bit of a...more

I have to admit I was surprised when Courtney Cole asked me to read an ARC of Fated. I loved her novel Princess, but hadn't exactly given Every Last Kiss (ELK) a glowing rating. She said she felt like I'd give her my honest opinion of the book, and being curious about what adventures lie ahead for Macy, I said, "Um....yes please." And my honest opinion is...I loved it.

Fated picks up with Macy Lockhart several months after the conclusion of ELK. As a Keeper in the Order of the Moirae, it is her d...more
Cindy
Fated, second book to the Bloodstone Saga...well, I absolutely loved Every Last Kiss and i mirror my feelings with Fated! Another great book by Ms. Cole! She is truly talented. She has a great gift in developing a great story and great characters! To me, Ms. Cole's books feels like New York Times Best Sellers! Although, this series and genre is YA, i think that adult women will love this book/ series. I found the YA appeal in this book/ series but I also found a very mature and sophisticated air...more
Branwen *Blaidd Drwg*
Yes! Yes! Yes! The second installment of this series is absolutely awesome! *huge grin* After I finished 'Every Last Kiss' I was terribly afraid that nothing could top it. Apparently I misjudged Courtney Cole's writing, because this book rocked me so hard! First of all, I am SO glad that we got to see so much love between Macy and Gavin (or is it Harmonia and Cadmus? *winks*) and it was just such a treat to watch their immortal love unfold even further. Sometimes all the romantic drama in young...more

Fated is the second book in the Bloodstone Saga and is every bit as wonderful as the first book. Macy is back in Pasadena, living her current life and waiting for her new Daedal to come into her life again. From the moment Macy meets her, things begin to go very differently than ever before and she realizes something is very wrong. She quickly realizes that nothing is as it seems, including herself.

This book goes in a completely different direction than the first, and there are a lot of unexpect...more
Catherine
This book was very repetitive. It felt like she was constantly mentioning her/their previous lives as Cleopatra & crew (this does let up as the book goes on, but still continues). Seriously in the thousands of years you've been alive, that's the ONLY one you want to talk about? Well, she does talk about her and her companion's lives as Greek gods constantly too.

So, cons:
- repetitive; besides the aforementioned things, if I have to hear how beautiful Cadmus is one time...
- mention of God and...more

I am always leery reading a sequel when I love the first book of a series so much. Will it hold up to the first? Will it take me deep into the book world, intoxicate me with it's story and leave me wanting more? So, while I was excited to see where Macy's adventures would take her next, I was cautiously optimistic at how the second book would unfold, wondering if I'd love it as much as I loved Every Last Kiss.

I certainly did! WOW. Fated takes off running from where Every Last Kiss ended, and ba...more

*~*Review*~*

Fated is the second installment in the Bloodstone Saga. Seventeen year old Macy Lockhart has been through a lot over the course of her lifetimes. Yes, I said lifetimes and she’s not really seventeen. You see Macy is a Keeper of the Fate in an organization called the Order of the Moirae (Fate). It is her duty and responsibility to guide her charge, or Daedal through each stage of life, ensuring she makes the right decisions regardless of whether or not...more

I have to admit I went into this book thinking it was going to be terrible. Didn't see how it could surpass the first book in the series. Second I didn't know how great the story would be going from Cleopatra to Zeus. Not to mention with all the 4 and 5 star reviews I was afraid I'd be disappointed. I could not of been more wrong about all of it.

The story starts off almost the same way as the other with Macy in Pasadena. However, this time all of her memories are still in tack. Generally the ch...more
Jennifer
Fascinating!! Wonderful story! After Every Last Kiss I had to wonder how Cole could possibly top herself..but she did. Fated was amazing.. The twists and surprises kept me fully engrossed and anticipating each turn of the page! This book took me on a roller coaster ride of emotions. Love, hate, fear, anticipation, grief, happiness.. I could go on and on. Cole has a wonderful way of making you feel as if you know the characters yourself.. and you feel like such a part of the story. I cannot wait...more

Whew! What a ride! A sequel that holds the same power as the book that came before it... ta dah! I really enjoyed Book #2 of the Bloodstone Saga and I am so glad that Book #3 was just released.

Macy discovered a lot about herself in Every Last Kiss and that trend continues in Fated. Not only does she discover her soul mate in Gavin but she also finds Jade, her Daedel in her life as Macy. She quickly finds that nothing is as it seems and she is not who the Moirae have made her out to be. There is...more

Holy Moly! Courtney Cole wrote such an AMAZING start to this series with Every Last Kiss, it can be hard to continue to deliver this kind of literary awesomeness throughout the duration of the series. She delivered with Fated, all the way. I love how each book in the series I've gotten a little "history lesson" and the writing is, simply put, eloquent and masterful. Hoping the third one's on its way because the cliff hanger at the end of Fated left me wanting more . . . like yesterday!
Helen
Such a fast paced thrill ride, I say! Love this series, it is quickly becoming one of my favorites! I find myself up in the middle of the night reading, because I can't wait to find out what happens to all the characters. So Good!
Taylor Hale
I love this series so much. I can't wait until the next one comes out. I have been finding so many fantastic authors lately and Courtney Cole is definitely a new favorite.

I truly enjoyed the first book in the Bloodstone Saga; however, while "Fated" was enjoyable it was not as good a read for me as the first. This sequel is centered around the Greek myths (like so many books are doing right now). Macy must rescue the Greek gods from imprisonment from the 3 witches. The premise was different but I became somewhat exasperated with the constant mention of how much Macy and Gavin loved each other and are fated to be together. I must say that I enjoyed the supporting c...more

This book was entertaining, but I felt like it fell short from the first book. The characters were one dimensional, and I had a hard time connecting to any of them. It would be nice if the author would slow down a little and give us some more details instead of rushing through the story. Some scenes didn't really flow, they would sporadically move on to the next one. I also got annoyed with Harmonia and Cadmus. He is always "so beautiful" and she can't "catch her breath" around him. Enough alrea...more

****4.5 stars****

This time Ms. Cole weaves Greek mythology into her story and does so in a way that maintains the integrity of the tales we’ve all heard and adds a freshness to them as well. The characters are so well developed that the reader begins to understand their personalities and why they do the things they do. Macy (or Harmonia as we know her in this story) continues to piece together parts of her own life, better understanding her own past, in this book. These bits of insight allow her...more

Oh my. I so didn’t see this one coming. I read "Every Last Kiss" last year and it was nice. The concept was interesting, original even, but it didn’t draw me in. But boy, "Fated" did!

Macy works for as as Keeper for the ancient organisation of the Moirae, looking after her Deadal, someone who is destined to do great things, but is also destined to a life full of tragedy and pain. Two thousand years ago her Deadal was Cleopatra and Macy Charmian, her handmaiden and confidante. Now in present day P...more
Tiffany (About to Read)
I loved Fated—I mean really loved it! The story picks up shortly after Every Last Kiss, and it is filled with action and romance. Courtney Cole continues to write some pretty steamy/swoon worthy scenes between Gavin and Macy—and I devour all of it.

I have been obsessed with Greek Mythology since I was in about third grade. I read mythology books for fun, watched hours of Xena and Hercules, researched Greek Mythology online, and made my sisters take Greek Mythology tests, so I think it’s fair to s...more

After I finished Fated I struggled as to how to approach writing the review. For those of you who are familiar with the series, you know that the main character, Macy, has an immortal soul and is constantly reborn as a keeper; a protector. This time however, things go down a bit differently. The reader learns a great about Macy, her identity and her purpose and I really do not want to spoil things for you. So please forgive me if this review is a bit scatter brained and unclear at times, I am tr...more

Courtney Cole is a novelist who would eat mythology for breakfast if she could.

She has a degree in Business, but has since discovered that corporate America is not nearly as fun to live in as fictional worlds.

Every Last Kiss is her debut novel and she followed it with the rest of The Bloodstone Saga (Every Last Kiss, Fated, With My Last Breath and My Tattered Bonds).
