The Blurb

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.

My Review

If you enjoy stories of love at first sight, then this YA Paranormal Romance is one that you will enjoy. Fate Fixed is a captivating read right until the final page. I have read a lot of Paranormal books and this author was able to but her own unique twist into the creation of Vampires which I liked.

Lexie is being uprooted from her life and moved to the middle of nowhere after her mother remarries and they decide to move both their families to a new town. Lexie and her sister Ellie now have 3 step brothers who are all a bit weird and she doesn't understand them, they are intimidating and always invading her personal space.

I like Lexie, although she is a bit timid and doesn't like to create conflict within the family as she believes that she has done enough to break up her family already. Her new brother Maxim is the strangest of all and she feels quite threatened by him. The only comfort she has is the sight of the blue eyed boy from her dreams.

Torin has been dreaming of a girl for some time and knows it is his fate partner, but he has never met her. The other strange thing is that he has yet to undergo the change and doesn't understand how he could be dreaming of her already. He has never really shown interest in a girl before, he would rather hang with his cousin’s and do boy stuff, motorbike riding and working on his car.

As strange as both the families are we don't know what they all are straight away. We learn more about Torins history and the insecurities that Lexie has. The author keeps us in suspense the whole way through in this murder mystery. It is a story about soul mates with a twist. It was an action packed novel all the way through and I was on the edge of my seat until the very last page!!
