Seeking Fate by Brenda Drake is the third book of the young adult romantic fantasy The Fated series. Each book in the series has switched the main characters to form a new romantic relationship however the fantasy side of the story does carry over from book to book leaving the series best enjoyed from the beginning.

The entire series is written around the three Layne sisters who have magical abilities when it comes to others fate and destiny. In Seeking Fate Daisy Layne has traveled to Europe to

Seeking fate is an interesting spin on online relationships. Daisy has never met Andrei, she knows his fate. Daisy has until his eighteenth birthday to change his bad luck. He is the firstborn son and cursed. They have been talking for two years and have become good friends. Daisy has only seen pictures of Andrei in his younger days when they meet he isn't quite what she expects.

The fated series is about a family who finds their perfect match. The family are magically gifted (Gypsy) and Daisy's

I loved the first two books on the series, but this one somewhat fell short on my expectations. Probably it was because I kind of had high expectations...
The thing is, I loved many things from this book: the writing is amazing. The way the author tells the story, alternating between the two main characters really flesh out the story and gives it more substance. I loved the idea that they had been skypiing for two years and had feelings for each other, but discover is not the same to know som
I've been putting off writing this review for a while now. This book is so different from the rest in the series, the atmosphere in this one is so much darker than the previous ones and it's a little more predictable than the previous ones. It took me aback, and I didn't know how to approach this review.
The writing is good, but for some strange reason, it wasn't as engaging as the previous books in the series. The characters are well-written, I really enjoyed how well the dynamic between Daisy a

This is, from what I can see, the third in The Fated Series by Brenda Drake. The Layne sisters each taking up a book. Fated as in powers buried in history and discrimination from secret societies plotting to eliminate them. Daisy must find the first born residing in Europe before he reaches his eighteenth birthday. With her powers she must save him and herself before death fulfills its curse. Helping Daisy chase down this unknown sole is Andrei who is fighting his growing attraction to her. Clos ...more

Daisy focused on saving a life and it wasn’t easy as her own life might be in danger. She was in a plane and skimmed the pages of notes she’d written in the notebook on the tray before her. Her sister-Iris- next to Daisy in the seats and said to Daisy that she should get some sleep as Dairy had researched for two years this ritual and all that went into it and had gone over it hundreds of times. It had been two years since a spirit named Carina had possessed her older sister Aster. Daisy was the ...more

I received a free copy through NetGalley in exchange for an honest and unbiased review/opinion.

3.5 stars — So, first things first: I totes didn’t realize this was the last in a series. I knew it was part of a series (it says “The Fated Series” on the cover), but I assumed it was the start of one. I really wish it’d been more clear, b/c while it wasn’t a continuation of the previous stories, as I was reading I could tell I would have gotten more enjoyment i

the third book in the fated series, seeking fate, finds the fate changer, daisy layne, looking for the last of the van burens. his fate is tied to hers. his death will lead to hers. so she makes a trek across europe evading the thorns, a crazed religious sect out to kill fate changers, with her internet friend/european guide/love interest, andrei.

andrei knows what daisy is. and even though it can be dangerous to be close to her, he is already half in love with her when they first meet. too bad t

I adored every book in The Fated Series, and Seeking Fate is no exception!!!! Seeking Fate is told from two perspectives, and each one is gripping. Beautifully written, with a wonderfully described setting (Europe!), great world-building, and a slow burn romance, I couldn't turn the pages fast enough. Brenda Drake is the queen of action packed fantasy-romance!

“‘...Missed opportunities are the biggest regrets we carry in this world.’”*

Like her sisters, Daisy inherited the ability to use tarot cards to change fates, but the gift comes with a cost to her health. Dying slowly sucks, but after banishing a spirit, Daisy’s death becomes fast-tracked. Now, Daisy’s fate is tethered to a boy cursed to die on his eighteenth birthday. If Daisy doesn’t find him and change his fate, they’ll both be toast. Her online friend, Andrei, and her sister, Iris, are on boa

DNF @ 41%

I totally gave this book a fair shot-- I almost got halfway in.
The thing is, I wasn't pulled into it. I realized I was only halfway paying attention to what was going on. I suppose it isn't my type of writing?
The characters seemed to contradict themselves at times and the biggest fault, the one that had me closing the book was how the main dude was keeping a secret from her REGARDING THEIR SAFE

The story was interesting and I wish the book focused a bit more on that part. There was a lot of traveling and sightseeing info in the book which at times seemed to interrupt the action of the story. I really liked Daisy and Andrei individually and as a couple. It ended well and without a cliffhanger.

"Seeking Fate" finishes out the Fated series, which follows the sisters who have the gift/curse of being Fate Changers. This means they can change someone's fate through tarot card reading. Daisy is on a quest to find the last van Buren heir- the firstborns of the family are cursed to die when they turn 18. There is only one left, and if Daisy can find him and change his fate, the curse will be broken forever. She is aided in her search by Miri's nephew with whom she has been communicating throu ...more

This was a very quick read being less than 200 pages. This was truly an interesting book because it is about three sisters that have a gift or curse where they can change peoples fate. All they have to do is a tarot card reading.
This was a fast paced book I was sad when I finished it so quickly. I think it was because of the chemistry between Daisy and Andrei I wanted to know what was going to happen between them. Their first meeting was a little awkward because it was there first time meeting s

I want to once again thank Netgalley and the Entangled Publishing company for giving me this opportunity to read Seeking Fate. I also want to note these opinion are my own.

Daisy Layne, a girl who can change someone’s fate with a single touch. Daisy is gifted with the unusual gift, but her life is threatened when the last Van Buren heir is cursed. The first born son of the Van Buren family will die upon his eighteenth birthday. A twist comes when Daisy’s fate is tied to his.

Honestly, I loved this book. I have not read any of the rest of the Fated series, but that will will be remedied soon, because I really enjoyed this book. Sure, I had a few issues, but overall this was a cute, light romance that took me around Europe.

The cover is looking quite nice. The kissing pair for sure ist not everyones taste, and unfortunately not 100% mine. Maybe because Daisy - from her own description, was also looking quite differently. The light between their lips looks quite mysterious, which fits to the story, although it's not really about magic kisses overall. The diagonal shape of the titel I like quite much.

The writing style was quite simple. It was written from the perspective of Andrei and Daisy ( but no first-person-pers

I've probably been daft but when I requested I thought it was the first in a series and not the last. I still think this can easily be read as a stand alone but would prefer to have read the previous books beforehand. Despite this, I still enjoyed the book and themes it focuses upon.

I can't say that I've ever read a book based on tarot card readers and the magic world the envelops them. It's a completely different and enjoyable take on a YA romantic fantasy novel.

This book feels a little darker and grittier than the previous ones, which I liked. But it also felt more predictable in parts. I found my attention wavering, it didn’t keep me engrossed quite like the other two books in the series. The characters are well-written, it was fun seeing how their dynamic changed throughout the story, you could definitely feel their chemistry on every page. The ‘big twist’ is given away far too early, in my opinion. I’d have liked the tension and wonder to build up a ...more

I would like to thank Netgalley and CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform for this partnership.

I knew this author by name and especially for her other series "Library Jumpers". I jumped at the opportunity to read this last book of this series "Fated".

There is the pretty Daisy who has a friendly relationship online with Andrei. He's going to want to protect her even if touching her can kill him.

An addictive series full of suspense and twists with endearing characters, eager to read his oth

Seeking Fate by Brenda Drake
This was the very first book I read by this author and I gave to say I loved it! It was very well written and kept your attention the entire time it was so hard for me to put down! I'm kinda disappointed that it was the final book in the series and that I read it first but that will not stop me from going back and reading the other two books!!!

Despite being told I could read this as a stand-alone, I just wasn't feeling it. I never felt invested in the story or the characters, and they felt awkward. I'm not sure if awkward is even the right word... but something didn't click for me. I tried reading it over a few days, bu

Five stars and here’s why:

I couldn’t put it down. I love the premise. Three sisters who have a gift and/or curse of being able to change people’s fates. They’re called Fate Changers, and they have the power to change someone’s fate through tarot card readings. But there’s a faction of society that doesn’t find this ability appealing and hunt them down to eliminate them as they
