YA fantasy with some romance, told in 3rd person. Not über-intense, and not endlessly grim-dark. Fairly heartwarming at times, and fairly suspenseful, with some excellent battle strategy. Sometimes mildly funny. Poignant at times, as Kael realizes that his heroes and villains aren't as one-dimensional as depicted in his Atlas. A few beloved characters die, but with honor.

Plot in general terms: Titus and his abomination of beasts rule the Unforgivable Mountains at the summit, while Grognot the

Yaaaaassssss! More of KaelxKyleigh!

Since the first book of this series I have enjoyed listening to the audiobook. Derek Perkins did a wonderful job. I always thought that audiobooks will be boring but no it wasn't and I am glad I discovered this series.

So we have some new adventures in this book as Kael and Kyleigh journey to the Unforgivable Mountains. I couldn't contain my scary fangirl grin while I listen to every scene of my number one OTP in this series. Lucky that I was listening to the

Staying with ~90%.
This was more like the first book, livelier and with more funny moments than the second - but it did not shirk on the backstory. The pace was a bit deceiving in the middle, it felt like it had to get to the final battle soon but there were still some twists to happen.
At this point, there's still one thread left unfinished for the last book.

It could have ended here - but I know there is one more volume to come. But meanwhile, what a great ending!

I liked most of this book, whole series had me enough to look forward to each book. I like how the powers were developed, but i feel like i dont know what a whisperer healer does, since he was obviously using craftsman abilities to heal. Does that not make craftsman also able to heal? This was omitted in my opinion and I think it has something to do with the material being affected, maybe they cant do anything with flesh? No idea, I wish someone would let me know if i missed something since this ...more

The last third of this book made up for the first 2/3rds which were a little boring and frustrating. It also has me looking forward to the last (?) book in the series!

Likes:
- The return of all my favorite characters.
- Once Kael stops being a whiner, he actually becomes a good leader. He lives up to being a Wright.
- Baird was my favorite new character from this book.
- The romance between Kyleigh and Kael was actually decently written.

Dislikes:
- Wasn't too fond of Gwen. She needs to chillax.
- I

This 3rd installment in the Fate's Forsaken series is a good but not quite great addition to the series. Obviously readers of this book will be well acquainted with the characters and plot. While it is interesting to see the character growth of Kael, the "love" plot was almost too distracting to the storyline. While not as distracting as that of the Green Rider series, it still seems over-done. While I am pretty sure that the target audience of this series are those that are considered "teens" ...more

Very nice book 3

Very nice book 3

I have enjoyed reading books one and two very much. It was a long wait for this one- I like both the writing and the story-telling in these books. I appreciate any author who can produce stories and characters that are as interesting and well-crafted as these. I have been reading fantasy and sci-fi for many years, and I know Good books are a bit hard to find - these books have a lot of depth in the characters and story. Kael is a bit hard-earned and stubborn,

OK this book was hundred times better than the previous two. In this book the protagonist truly transforms into a powerful character as was indicated from the beginning but not shown until now. Here he takes command and shows strength of character. The story also moves forward and many plots were unraveled. The most important part for me was that he learned what it means to be wright and was 'awakened'. In the previous books he was shown a weakling which i hated the most.Also the romance between ...more

I haven't read such a complete series in my 27 years of life. Fates Forsaken has it all from Love to Magic to the most evil people in the kingdom. I absolutely lost myself in these books. I believe my only gripe is that Kael is so damn stubborn, He had me pulling my hair out. Every person in these books are bought to life through the writing and leave a mark on your soul that you'll remember them forever. I am so glad their is a forth book and Kael and Kyleigh's story isn't done. Summer 2015 is ...more

Another good book in the series. I didn't know there was going to be a fourth though! I feel that the author has set up the next book pretty well. I don't think this is one of the greatest series I have read, but it does keep my attention and the author does a pretty good job of developing the main character and making you like him. I eagerly look forward to reading the next book in the series once it is released!

Great series

Don't think I reviewed books one and two. They were good, four star books. This one took it up a notch for me. Really liked most characters, and the groups they hailed from. While I wasn't exactly surprised much, I felt the story moved well enough that it wasn't even an issue; the storytelling is first rate. Definitely recommend

What an amazing series!

These books just keep getting better! The author brings the world and each character to life in a way I haven't experienced in any books since Brandon Sanderson's. If you like fantasy even a little, you won't be disappointed!!!

another great book from Shae Ford ,well worth the wait,only problem now is that I have to wait for the next book
Søren Aggerholm
The story in the first three books is a quite good fantasy read. Unfortunately the story is turning more and more into a teenage-love-novel, which I probably will have to endure for book 4 as well...

“It's when you want something so badly, but it's always just out of reach. Then somebody else comes along, someone who knows nothing of your struggles. They don't understand the heartache you've had to endure. They simply walk up, and they take it — they take the thing you wanted so badly straight out of your grasp. And you can't even be angry because deep in your heart, you know they're better suited for it. That's what it feels like to be jealous.” 0 likes
