Alderson has again produced fast and fiery sequel in Severed. If you were suckered in by Fated, you honestly haven’t seen anything yet. Alderson in my eyes has quickly become the master of surprises; the sucker punches that came in Severed had me sitting in shock, left my mind reeling and had me wanting to jump up and down shouting how could you do this to me?

In Severed we are reunited with the unexpected pair of Lucas and Evie, after everything’s that’s gone down, they’re on the run with who kn

Severed is the highly awaited sequel to Sarah Alderson’s Fated and she really doesn’t disappoint with this exciting and enthralling instalment.

Starting straight after the events in Fated, Evie and Lucas are now on the run and are trying to seek shelter. They end up at Lucas’s sister while they try and find a group of rogue hunters, who they believe can help them win the battle against the Brotherhood. While training with the hunters, Evie finds out that in order to end the battle, a bi

You see, this is what I love on a series: for the second book to be better than the first one; for it to grab my attention, to keep me on the edge of the seat waiting to see what new surprise will come next; for it to break my heart a bit, to make me feel all different emotions from happiness to despair; I want a book to make me laugh and cry, to hate it and love it with passion, to say: “wow, this was such a great story!”

And “Severed” is that and maybe even more.
Where the hell’s the next book?

Review originally posted in:

I love how it still has the same theme as Fated! The simplicity of the cover really reflects the book and I like how there's the contrast between the dark and light colour in the background.


What does it take to sever the realms?

When I first read Fated, I longed for its sequel already. I really hoped that the rights for the sequel was picked by Simon & Schuster so we can read the sequel! But, I was surprised to f

Even though I couldn't put this book down while I was reading it, continuing on with trepidation at times, as to what was coming next, I feel the cliffhanger just took all the goodness out of it and left me with a bad taste in my mouth.

I found the first half to be ticking over with nothing too exciting going on but I just enjoyed being back in this world with Evie and Lucas. After the battle at the end of Fated in which the brotherhood were wiped out, they are on the run and head to Luc

Severed, book 2 in the Fated series took awhile to warm up, but at the halfway mark it packed a punch.

Evie and Lucas are on the run trying to uncover the prophecy of the White Light. Looking for clues, and for people to help give them clues, slows the story down in the beginning as we are introduced to a new cast of characters. Once we meet the bedpost-notching, rogue hunter, Cyrus, things pick up a bit with Cyrus' larger than life ego and one-liners. He swaggers into the hate-to-love, quick-wit

I can't breathe. Seriously. It ended that way? THAT WAY?

Let's rewind a minute. So we pick up Evie's story as she and Lucas are on the run, unhumans chasing after them and questioning the meaning of a prophecy which includes Evie. I'm not giving ANYTHING else away in this review because I knew nothing going in and I loved every minute.

I love Angel and Buffy and Severed fits nicely into that kind of world. Sarah describes each character and scene so colourfully I honestly felt like I could see eac
So it's no secret that I'm a massive fan of everything that Sarah Alderson writes and I loved Fated when I first read it last year. At the time I had high hopes for it to turn into a series so I couldn't have been more excited when I found out that Sarah had written two more books about Evie and Lucas. Anyone who enjoyed Fated will be pleased to know that Severed is even better - there is more action, more intrigue, more danger and of course more romance. We also get to meet some interesting new ...more

Initial Response
I get to cut .5 for that ending. We don't deserve to have that happens to us. Sarah you cannot just decide to break our hearts that way its not fair.
I am not going to say anything about this book. I really hope the fact that shadowed is releasing in early 2013 isn't a joke, I have no idea what to do right now.
I am so heart broken.

Quick recap of Fated
In Fated we are introduced to Evie Tremain, who suddenly learns that she is the last in a line of demon Hunters. Unfortunately she finds this out after a group of them try to kill her, including Lucas Gray who is a half-human Shadow Warrior. Not only does Evie discover a heritage she knew nothing about, she finds out that there is an important prophecy surrounding her. While the Hunters will do anything to make sure she fulfills her purpose, the demons will do everyt
Spoilers - 2.5 stars

I liked this more than I thought I would — it was a quick, easy read and the characters were mostly tolerable.
The plot wasn't very exciting though - Lucas and Evie spent the majority of the book running around trying to find safety or trying to gather more information on the prophecy about Evie. I thought most of the book was pretty pointless, it was only at the end when things of importance happened and when the story actually kicked off.

I was not expecting that...any of this.

Ok, so I'm going to try and write something that makes sense but I can't guarantee anything, including that this review is free from spoilers, you have been warned.

The new characters definitely made this book even better than I anticipated, and after where the first book left off I was really looking forward to knowing what happened next. It was interesting to see that Lucas has a family, I just never thought about siblings, and even though she's pretty mad
I have to admit, this book wasn't everything I had hoped it would be. I love Sarah Alderson's writing, don't get me wrong, and I absolutely loved her books Hunting Lila and Losing Lila, and of course I read Fated before reading this one. I just thought there was a lot more than there needed to be, like this book was trying to hard to be something it wasn't. It was still very well-written, as always, but there was something missing, and I still don't know what it is. It's not the romance, that's ...more

Severed is the perfect sequel to Fated, and I'm sure that it will satisfy all fans! Be prepared for the same heart-stopping action, mysteries and the epic romance that we all love so much.

In Severed, Evie and Lucas are on the run from their lives to fight the evil that threatens the world. On their way, they encounter a group of rogue unhumans and have no choice but to join them because they offer some much-needed help. As Evie discovers more about what is happening to the realms, she i

Alright, I'm just going to say this up front: I hated the ending. I was so upset I was reconsidering finishing the series.

Also, death is imminent in this story. It's like a constant lingering reminder, the invisible force/fear resulting in such entertaining & thrilling action sequences. Because like Fated, Severed followed through and even stepped it up a notch with the action scenes. I loved the confrontations and the new rogue hunter characters that were introduced. I even liked

I left way to long to finally start this book. I read the first book, Fated, about 2-3 years ago and could remember hardly anything which happened. I couldn't remember any of the characters, save for Lucas and Evie, any of the plot or any of the background. Due to this I had a difficult time getting into the story and feel I would have enjoyed it more if I had read this book sooner or re-read the first book.

Due to this I feel I cannot make an unbiased judgement on this book as I couldn't fu

Well, Severed was considerably better than Fated. And we were introduced to Cyrus. And, let me tell you, Cyrus is pretty awesome. But if I'm completely honest . . . I'm glad I grabbed this copy of Severed when it was free for Kindle because I wouldn't have paid full price for it. Sad, yes, but true, because I LOVE Sarah Alderson. I really, really do.

I mean, after the ending of Severed . . . I'm definitely going to pick up Shadowed. Definitely. Because Lucas is amazing. And Evie is pretty awesome

Du coup je me suis ennuyé pendant la moitié du roman. Trop peu d'actions et toutes sont prévisibles, on sent la fin venir à des kilomètre à la ronde. Bref, j'ai adoré le 1er tome, beaucoup moins celui ci mais on reste dans ma logique des choses : 1er tome super, 2ème tome qui casse pas des briques, 3ème tome qui clôture le tout en beauté =) (espérons !!!)

J'avais adoré le premier livre de cette trilogie et je n'ai pas été déçue par cette suite. Il y a beaucoup d'action et de revirements de situation même si certains sont un peu prévisibles, en particulier un que j'avais vu venir depuis assez longtemps dans l'intrigue. D'autres sont par contre beaucoup plus surprenants, la conclusion est tout simplement horrible et si vous avez la patience d'attendre je vous conseille de le lire plus proche de la sortie du tome 3, personnellement j'en suis encore ...more

I was so looking forward to reading this, but unfortunately I wasn't as impressed as I'd thought I'd be. The ending left me feeling both sad and annoyed. I just couldn't believe how she ended it?? With not even a string of hope of something maybe not being exactly how it may seem (I don't want to say what in case you haven't read it and I spoil the ending).
As it has the most depressing ending ever I could only award it 3 stars. I don't know if I'm going to read the next one.

It was better than the first one. Honestly, I got irritated by the first book
because Evie and Lucas' romance isn't quite believable for me. But then, here comes
Severed,It blew me away. Especially the ending, It was ugh. I can't explain how frustrated I am.
But this frustration is good in some sort of way. :))

“Look,’ said Cyrus, raising his knife again and pointing it at her. ‘Give me one reason why we shouldn’t kill your boyfriend over there. Come on. The dark scowling face is reason enough in my book.’
She could have sworn she heard the sound of Lucas’s eyes narrowing to slits.
‘Come on, just one reason,’ Cyrus repeated, ‘and it better not include the words love, eternal or soul.”
“Checkmate to us I think,’ Cyrus said softly. ‘Now listen to me,’ he said, dropping his gaze to Evie. ‘If you want protection you can come with us now. Your boyfriend, however, is one of them. And what’s rule number three, Vero?’
‘Kill all unhumans,’ the girl answered flatly.
‘Jesus,’ Evie said, bringing her hands quickly to Cyrus’s chest and pushing him hard. He fell backwards a few steps. ‘This is not Fight Club,’ she yelled. ‘You can break a rule for Chrissake.”
