When Aislinn and Catriona are taken into the fae realm, their fate falls into the hands of a broody prince/rightful king. Instead of letting them be devoured, Kieran saves them and comes fate to face with his fated mate, Aislinn. It's a connection that neither of them want. All Aislinn wants to do is return to the human world and Kieran just wants to live the remainder of his days alone.

Kieran has a dark past and still struggles to control his powers. Because of this, he can't risk having a mate. Aislinn hates the idea of living in the fae realm. She wants to return him with her sister Catriona. But when Catriona is taken, Aislinn will do anything to get her back, including making a deal with Kieran. Whether she likes it or not, he is her only hope of getting her sister back.

With a fate that's intertwined, it's hard for Kieran and Aislinn to ignore the connection between them. The worst part is that the more time they spend together, the harder it is to fight. When push comes to shove, Kieran and Aislinn will have to rely on each other to save Catriona and either accept or ignore that path fate creates for them.

Kieran and Aislinn go back and forth a lot and it makes for a slow-burn romance. I love how strong Aislinn and her dedication to her sister. FATE CALLING is a unique fantasy fae romance that stands out among the others filling the market. I love when people are destined to be together, but try to fight it anyway. It's one of my favorite tropes. Kieran is a brute, but has a heart underneath all of his anger, which makes him that much more likable.


Final Verdict: I would recommend this book to fans of romance, fae, fantasy, intertwined fates, a connection that's impossible to fight, and adventure. FATE CALLING is a great series for those looking for unique fae reads while waiting for the fifth Sarah J. Maas book to come out!
