Feudlings (Fate on Fire #1)
by Wendy Knight
Nothing makes a new school suck worse than discovering the guy you’re in love with is your prophesied nemesis.
Ari is the most powerful flame-throwing sorceress ever, and her people’s last hope in an ancient war. But she’s also a seventeen-year-old girl, and in her free, not-hunting-nemesis times, she jumps from school to school, trying to figure out regular people her own age and pretending she’ll get the chance to graduate.
Shane lives a double life. He goes to school and masters the art of popularity, hiding the fact that he has a fate with a slim chance of his survival. He’s destined to end a 300 year-old war by killing or being killed. He knows he’s hunted by a powerful enemy who’s not afraid to die. Only problem? He has no idea who that enemy is.
When Ari shows up at Shane’s school, angry and sullen and determined to keep him at arm’s reach, neither of them realize they are supposed to be killing each other, not fall-ing in love. Until Ari does realize it, and she almost dies – by Shane’s hand.
Ari is a seventeen year old girl who has spent her life fighting for the Edrens against the Carules. She is a powerful sorceress who is destined to kill the prodigy of the Carules. In doing so she will end the war between them. She goes to a new school for and tries to adjust to getting around the place and she ends up making new friends. Friends are the one thing she has never aloud herself to have. She always has to leave and doesn't want to leave anyone behind plus she has to keep her secret. Shane is one of the new friends she makes and she begins to feel more for him than just friends. What she doesn't know at first is Shane is a Carules and the prodigy she is meant to kill. Shane has never been aloud to fight any battles he is meant to just kill the Edrens prodigy and must be kept safe. He falls hard for Ari even when she tries to keep a distance from him. An accident leads them all to find out the truth and it may just kill them both.
Ari seems to be a hard core person that feels nothing. She is a killer and never lets herself forget that. She has a job to do and nothing can stand in her way. She slowly opens up and becomes a fun person that you see can be loving and cares for people. She is very powerful. Shane is the school hunk who all the girls want. It should make him cocky and he is a little. He gets knocked down a peg or to by Ari rejecting him. He is a very caring and loving person and only wants to do what is right. He is also tired of being put on the side lines.
A friend got me this book because she knew how much I wanted it and she read and loved it. I will always be thanking her. I love this book. The day she got it for me I started reading right away. I read it in one day and probably would have read it in one sitting if my battery hadn't died. I really don't think there was a part I didn't like but the ending and that is just because I did not want it to end. From the start I liked the characters I could get inside their heads through the great way the author wrote the book. I love when that happens. You get to see all the characters really open up as you read not just the main ones. The plot is wonderful yes it may have been done before but not like this. There is so much going on you don't know what to expect next. Lots of action as you get to see several fight scenes. There is secrets that come out that leave you gasping and you really don't see it coming how evil some people can be. The lengths they are willing to go through is amazing. I won't spoil the book so just read this you will not regret it. Now I must stalk err watch and wait for the next one.
I really enjoy the cover of this book!
