Publisher's Summary

The first shifter in the Pyte/Sentinel series:

As the top Alpha male of Boston, it's Drew's job to keep his Pack safe, keep the humans from finding about their existence, try to pretend that he was fine with the way that his life was going, and, most importantly, not give in to the urge to kill Kara, the thorn in his side for way too long.

When fate steps in one night and destroys his world, he strikes back, but his new mate is more than he can handle....

OK I liked this book alot but I have a few issues

This book and previous one were pretty great. There were a few sections where I laughed out loud at the banter between the H and h. There are 2 reasons I didnt give this book more stars. First, at this point I've had enough with all the little tiny bits of info on Jill's story but still making us wait. This book had not one update on Jill which makes me feel cheated especially since we don't know when her story is coming out. Second, I am getting fed up with the way this author portrays the females when they get pregnant. It's not funny and in this story it's like Kara lost all her brain cells and personality the minute she was pregnant. It's just sad at this point, I just wish she would respect her heroines

Ugh, the main characters

Let me start by saying I love this series and RL can create some really complex, wonderful characters. But I really didn’t like the main characters in this book. The story was really good, but the characters were so annoying. Like Bella from Twilight annoying. I ended up liking the male main character by the end and I thought his character arc was really intriguing, but I really wanted more details. These characters weren’t as developed as previous books, which my favorite part of this series. Also, all of the books ending with pregnancy or a baby/babies is overdone .

Mixing with the Enemy

This one is shorter than the other stories, so you're left with wanting more. And since I'm not really a fan of shifter romances, I was delighted to conclude that Drew is such a great character. I found myself liking him more so than the pain in the ass (PITA) heroine. Later on we find out why Kara is the way she is: survival. The weak are weeded out, while the strong get left alone. The world of the shifters is harsh and unforgiving. It's unfair and prejudicial, archaic and without remorse. But the love between the two fated mates transcends all of that. It reunites them with our beloved Sentinel/Pyte gang. Once again, we find out how far one would be willing to go in order to protect his mate, even if it means giving it all up to side with the enemy.

Great shifter addition to the series.

Mathewson is really creative with the series storyline. Each book is fresh while folding in the awesome previous characters. I really hope Mathewson gives Kale his own story. As for Fated, Mathewson does a great job of developing Drew and Kara.

One of the best books I have read in a long time. I advise the whole series. But, I want the other stories that is hinted at the end of book 3 about Lisa!

my favorite so far

I really like the series. this is my favorite so far the other ones were a little confusing and irritating to me because the plot kept going back and forth and when you have three plots going on at the same time it's very aggravating to keep up

Eh...

So, I didn't exactly like how the two main characters treated each other at first. Selfish, cruel and worse. The author was talented enough to make me enjoy the story AFTER they started developing emotional attachments, but... I'm sorry, I couldn't get past the fact they weren't even decent people before that. I don't care how annoying I find someone, I'm not going to take pleasure in purposefully hurting or embarrassing or neutering them for LIFE. Even people I really dislike, I wouldn't do or say what they did and said.

How that ever evolved into emotion, I can't figure out. I'd never be able to trust my heart to someone who purposefully emotionally or physically wounded me. Accidentally hurt me, I can forgive easily. Purposefully causing hurt I can't even understand when not in the middle of an argument and lashing out. Even then, most people - or at least me - feel guilty for hurting someone immediately after that. So to do it when not actively in the middle of an argument? I can't even relate a little bit.

Too long and drawn out. Too long to correlate

While I enjoy the vampire and werewolf stories in general, the themes are basically the same. So stretched out too. It just seems incomplete. All of this has to build up to a serious fight between all the varying species. Also, I'm not naive about cuss words, but it just seems overused, unnatural and sometimes unnecessary. I need to take a break from this series. Just too much of the same from book to book. The over cooked pregnancy stories are exhausting too.

Ugh

It’s a straight shifter book until the last few chapters and if you couldn’t stand Isabella’s character in book 2 you won’t make it through this one. Whiny, droning and insanely stubborn unnecessarily with scenes that directly contradict her previous behavior. You’d swear she has split personalities. Sybil aside I do like seeing the growth of Drew’s character but you only see these two characters. Every one else is glossed over at best so if you don’t connect with either MC you might enjoy your vacation to the dentist more. Only my enjoyment of the side stories usually being weaved through kept me slogging through this one.

Excellent addition

I could have listened to Drew and Kara story for even longer. Great storyline, characters and plot. Interactions with previous characters add such value. So funny and sexy. Loved it!

pyte/sentinel? Or a NFH book?

Like the book. But, it isn't a pyte/sentinel book in my opinion. It reminds me too much of the neighbours from hell books ( That I liked). Nevertheless, this is supposed to be different. So far there hasn't been a pyte or sentinel in it. Shifters, yes (Not Cale) and it isn't like the other books.

So, sentinels we're in it later on ( way later) but no one we knew.
However, during the last 20 minutes of the book both pyte/sentinels were in it...including a sexy alpha werewolf with a tendency to steal chocolate. Ephraim, Chris and Cale make an appearance. In my opinion, I found this to be the most exciting part of the book. Maybe because I didn't know the other characters before their story, but I wasn't as in to it as the other ones.

Dreadful

What disappointed you about Fated?

I am normally a big fan of R L but this book is so bad that if you told me that it had been written by a 'ghost ' writter it would explain everything. The characters are not complete. Cara goes between really strong (she rips out a throat) to wet and baby like. Drew is not really likeable. The story takes ages to get going then stops. You spend chapters on vomiting and pregnancy....it moves a bit ....then yawn it happens again. The author drops bomb shells ...'in pure' and then it takes chapters of you wondering what that was about, until it was explained again. The dialogue is rehashed constantly ....rip his balls off!!! Seriously it got to the stage where listening to it put my teeth on edge with the same old phrases. For me this turned into car crash TV.....I kept listening thinking 'it must get better' but trust me ...it didn't.All in all this book is dreadful. The plot is week and poorly thought out. Some things are not explained. The characters are annoying and hard to relate to. The dialogue is lazy and rehashed which I might have forgiven if the story was better. Worst of all it is 8 hours of my life that I can never get back.The Editor who approved this needs to be sacked. R L ....I am really disappointed...either sack your ghost writter or go back to what you do best as this is not worthy of you.

What could R. L. Mathewson have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Plan out the story!!!!

Would you be willing to try another one of Celestine Wolf’s performances?

Yes...the narrator I think did a reasonable job considering how dire the story was

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Fated?

The entire book

Any additional comments?

Personally I think their should be more quality checks. I know when I buy some authors that the story will be weak but the romance and sex will be hot. Not this author she is normally very professional so I resent paying good money for awful.

***Hilarious***

I love this series but I reckon this book is the funniest one so far. I love Kara and Drew their both funny as lol
there is also some part of this book that made me cry and parts where I wanted to bitch slapped Drew haha. This is so good. Celesrine Wolf is is brilliant.
