Elena must venture into the Fae world to save the very people who would kill her if given the chance…

Tall and insanely beautiful, the Fae are not the angels they appear. When Elena comes into her half-Fae powers from the mother she never knew, the Fae threaten to harm the last of her loved ones unless she uses her ability to cure their people of a deadly disease.

Her only shot at pulling that off? Enlisting the help of her brooding neighbor, Derek, who rivals the Fae in masculine beauty. 

Derek has seen the Viking-looking guy following his neighbor's every move. Elena doesn't know it, but he's kept track of all his neighbors--possibly paying special attention to the beautiful, brainy girl next door. And when she comes to him for help, he only appears to hesitate. He has secrets of his own to keep, and this business she's involved in could ruin everything. 

But when Elena and Derek work together, more than chemicals spark fire, and they soon discover just how complicated attraction can get when they find themselves on the other side of the portal, fighting for survival. 

Fates Divided is a captivating twist on forbidden love, with unique world building, seductive romance, and a deadly war among Fae that will make your heart pound.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from half and half The story had a great message about prejudice of being half human and half fae which could be related to our world today for YA readers. Elena is thrown into a realm she didn't know existed. At first the story was a bit slow, the character were captivating but lack some hook until the middle to the end of the book. I liked the main character loved to cook. Too many girls now a days don't even know how to boil water and have no desire to cook which is sad. I wish the story was more focused in the fae realm but I guess that's what we will get in book 2.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Jules Barnard has given us a truly wonderful beginning to a YA paranormal series with this book. With great writing she brings the fantasy world to life. The story did have parts that seemed to drag a little and it took me a bit to understand all the new terminology (Fae, Halvens etc,) but once that all clicked into place the story moved along. The romance that develops between Elena and Derek is sweet and while not the main focus of the book it definitely adds to the story. If you love paranormal, this is a good one. I recommend it.
