Review- Fate Fixed by Bonnie Erina Wheeler

  When Lexie Anderson’s mother suddenly announces she is marrying a Romanian immigrant, Lexie willingly leaves behind her busy life in Connecticut for her penance in “The Moose Capital of the World.” Small town living is strange enough, now Lexie must cope with her overbearing stepfamily monitoring her every move. They disappear into the woods at night and keep a strange secret locked in their shed. Her once calm mother is now having violent outbursts and Lexie’s little sister is hearing sinister sounds coming from the forest behind their new home. Lexie’s biggest surprise comes when she discovers the boy she has been dreaming about since her accident is living in Maine. Despite Torin’s questionable reputation, Lexie cannot resist the physical and emotional attraction pulsating between them. Animals and people in town are turning up dead and Lexie learns the strange new world she lives in has real life monsters. Just when she decides she wants to be with Torin forever, she must fight to protect her mother and sister from being harmed by a formidable evil.


Fate Fixed is not your typical paranormal romance. Nowadays, there are so many vampire romances with the same thing in them but Fate Fixed was a fresh young adult paranormal romance with a nice mystery. The story was a bit predictable but I still enjoyed it.

It starts with Lexie having dreams about a mysterious boy with blue eyes. She has to move to a small town in Maine with her new family. Her mother has remarried after her father passed away and now Lexie has three step brothers and a step father to adjust with. The death of Lexie's father is a tragic incident which Lexie blames herself for. There are lot of changes happening in her life and she has a lot to deal with.

Torin, is the mystery boy Lexie dreams of. He's quiet and intense and the mystery around him definitely leaves you wanting more. Torin, Teagan, Cian and Braden are four cousins who form the group in Fate Fixed. Each of them has a unique personality and style. I was intrigued by each of them and can't wait to see how their stories go.

Lexie and Torin's love story was spectacularly romantic and super sweet. You could see the attraction and how easily they balanced each other out. But before they can fully trust each other gruesome killings of animals start happening which are followed by murders. The plot thickens here. The whole mystery in finding out the killer while protecting their bond is what leads the story toward the climax.

Fate Fixed has a different take on vampires and the story is enjoyable. The pace is fast and the prose is easy and simple. The plot moves so you don't get bored. It is a well written book. You can feel the creepiness and violence coming out in a few scenes. If you are craving a young adult paranormal romance you should definitely read Fate Fixed and be mesmerized by Erris Coven.
