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.

I was so excited to receive Fated by Alyson Noel from Macmillan. Why?

First, because of its subject matter. Native American lore? Spirit animals? Oooh, nice to see something new in the paranormal genre.

And, second, because I was lucky enough to get to “read” it in two formats — print and audiobook. Now that’s just plain fun. I’ll do another post soon about my first experience with audiobooks (LOVED IT, thank you, Macmillan Audio).

Anyhoo, I hope YOU’RE excited, because today is your chance to win your very own SIGNED copy of Fated!

Definitely enter if you’re a fan of all things paranormal — you’ll eat this one up. For me, it has a bit of a slow start, but that’s typically my reaction to the first book in a paranormal series. There’s a lot of backstory to get in, so that’s to be expected.

    I also love paranormal books and for some reason this reminded me of how the story lines in Northern Exposure about the native cultures always was interesting!

    I liked most of the Immortals series that she wrote (i.e. books 1-2 and 5-6), so I was definitely looking into this one. I even heard that Ever was going to make an appearance in this series.

    Is it just me or does the model on the cover look exactly like Selena Gomez? Surely I can’t be the only one who noticed.
