Review: Fateful

Claudia Gray
Publisher: Harper Collins Children's Books
Release Date: September 13, 2011

It's about a servant girl named Tess in 1912, who wants to escape from the house where she works, and most particularly the lecherous young lord of the manor. But that's not her biggest problem. While on a voyage to America, where she plans to escape and start a new life, she meets Alec, who's ruggedly handsome, fabulously wealthy, intelligent and yet so clearly troubled that she'd rather not fall for him, but she does. That also is not her biggest problem. Alec, it turns out, is a werewolf ... one cursed to change every night, unless and until he surrenders his independence and joins the Brotherhood, a pack of violently misogynistic werewolves who have been tracking him for months. You'd think that would be their biggest problem, wouldn't you?

But no. Their biggest problem -- though they don't know it yet -- is that they're aboard the RMS Titanic.

Werewolves on the Titanic! You really can't get any better than that!

I really enjoyed Fateful. I thought I would and it was no disappointment.

I have to say that I devoured this book. I read it in on sitting. So good and so intriguing. 

I really liked the characters in this book. Tess and Alec. I really liked reading about them.

As far as the werewolf part goes, I have to say I've seen better. it's not that it was bad. It's just not my favorite werewolves.

And the ending. I don't want to give anything away, but I will way that at the end I was happy but not quite satisfied.

Fateful will satisfy any fans of werewolves or historical fiction, and I love both.
