A fierce wolf, called a vulk, is about to face his past in more ways than one all because of a girl with strange healing powers. Hans is on the hunt for the magicwielders who wish to bring back ancient evils to the world of Ulterra. He can smell him thanks to being a vulk, but what he finds leaves him surprised. A beautiful girl naked, tied to a bench. It doesn’t take long until they are bonded together without any knowledge. While trying to find out why they have a rune binding them and what it means, they learn of a past enemy that Hans believed he killed, is back from the underworld, Pelko, and is up to something. With the looming doom, they prepare for battle, learning to trust their hearts and find their place in this world of chaos that is threatening to take over their home and their world.
Fated Awakened by Jocelyn Montana is just wow. For me to explain everything I loved about this book, we would be here all day. Well maybe not you, as you can just go ahead and leave at any point, though I hope you finish reading these little reviews. That is just the short way of saying there wasn’t a thing I hated. I can’t think of a single thing that upset me, well outside of the story plot, but not in a bad way. Let’s start with the world building. I can say honestly it was amazing. I would like to have a map for reference while reading at times, but that isn’t a bad thing. I am just curious by nature of the layout of things at times. With the way Jocelyn Montana described everything the characters saw; you couldn’t help but imagine everything. I couldn’t get enough of the world. I want to explore it, even the areas that sound dangerous. It sounds beautiful and like a gorgeous adventure.
The next thing of note I feel we should discuss is story plot. Normally in a book or novel I see parts that feel rushed or neglected, but in Fate Awakened, I did not experience this feeling. It is almost as if Jocelyn Montana loved what she was writing and wanted to share the experience with the reader. It was smooth and provided enough information to keep you going back for more. I can honestly say, there were times I was angry because I had to be present in the real world. I literally, counted down the second until I could get back to it.
The characters kept you on the edge. There were spicy scenes, which will be discussed in a moment, that kept things interesting, but they didn’t take away from the story at all. The characters had their own personalities that seemed to blend well together. It was a delightful read because of that. As for our spicy scenes, I can tell you that there may be some trigger if you aren’t into werewolves and such doing such graphic mature content. It does include knotting. Which would normally be something I am not into, but it seemed to make sense in this plot and wasn’t a huge priority. If it was discussed constantly, I might have felt off, but it was not even a focus. It just kind of happened, so it did not bother me at all, but if that isn’t your thing, please do not read this book.
As for recommendations and ratings, I had to really think hard. I absolutely loved the book in its entirety; therefore, I rate Fated Awakened fie out of five stars. I absolutely couldn’t get enough of this book. Jocelyn Montana has a new fan, that is for sure. As for recommendations, this is for our mature audiences. It does include a few adult scenes in it and as I stated it does have a weird kink in it so keep that in mind when debating on picking up the book. I can’t say I didn’t warn you on that now. It was really good, and I recommend to my paranormal fantasy lovers.
