ARC Review: Fated by Alyson noel

The first book in a magnificent new series about a girl who can navigate between the worlds of the living and the dead by #1 New York Times bestselling author Alyson Noël.

Lately strange things have been happening to Daire Santos. Animals follow her, crows mock her, and glowing people appear out of nowhere. Worried that Daire is having a nervous breakdown, her mother packs her off to stay in the dusty plains of Enchantment, New Mexico with a grandmother she’s never met.

There she crosses paths with Dace, a gorgeous guy with unearthly blue eyes who she’s encountered before...but only in her dreams. And she’ll get to know her grandmother—a woman who recognizes Daire’s bizarre episodes for what they are. A call to her true destiny as a Soul Seeker, one who can navigate between the worlds of the living and the dead. Her grandmother immediately begins teaching her to harness her powers—but it’s an art that must be mastered quickly. Because Dace’s brother is an evil shape-shifter who’s out to steal her powers. Now Daire must embrace her fate as a Soul Seeker and find out if Dace is one guy she’s meant to be with...or if he’s allied with the enemy she’s destined to destroy

Calamity's Review:

Lets start with the cover, it is BEAUTIFUL! Call me superficial, but that is mostly why I wanted to read it. BUT... the book was slightly disappointing. I expected it to be better considering how many people were excited to read it. The blurb was interesting enough and the storyline was good, but the writng style was not for me. The book was slow and took forever to actually get to the point. I felt as if I were waiting for something the the whole time I was reading.
The main character, Daire, was very realistic and it was easy to relate to her. She was really outgoing but shy at the same time. I got tired of reading from her point of view though. She would do the opposite of what the readers would want her to do and started to get irritating.
The book was good but honestly, the writing style was just not my cup of tea and I found it slightly repetetive.

I rate this book a 3!
