Cursing Fate (The Fated, #2)Cursing Fate by Brenda Drake
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

After Iris Layne had her fate changed when her sister touched a tarot card Iris had thought she had lost her chance at a relationship with Wade Diaz forever. As much as Wade doesn’t really want anything to do with Iris now though he still cares about her and when he sees she’s in trouble he can’t help but want to help her out. However when Iris touches her sister’s tarot cards she unleashes an evil spirit intent on playing a deadly game where no one Iris loves is safe, especially Wade.

Cursing Fate is the second book in the Fated series by Brenda Drake. The main characters in this second book have changed so it’s not completely necessary to have read the first book to understand what is going on in this one. There are mentions to the first books characters and plot though so if wanting to read both I’d suggest starting at the beginning.

This series is actually a really good, fast paced young adult fantasy series that focuses on magic surrounding tarot cards. Both books in the series have had a completely different take on the magic and how it’s worked into the plot which I found extremely creative and fun to read. I’ve really enjoyed the characters and plot in both books and would definitely recommend checking them both out for a new magical twist on the use of tarot cards.

I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley.

    • I loved the creativity in both of them but I kind of wanted more updates or more involvement from the characters in the first book while reading the second, kind of disappointed to have Aster just gone off to school there instead of helping her sister.

      • Well I’m sure it helps an author if the book can be read as a standalone too so if someone missed the first they may still jump in and read this one. Romance genres you can usually easily jump in later book but it’s not often to find other genres like that and I know I tend to shy away when it means I need to go back and pick up others….. but hey maybe that’s just me and my endless TBR. LOL
