Fated Magic is a paranormal romance novel written by Callie Rose. This is the first book in the Claimed by Wolves series.
Wolf shifters are real. And three alphas have claimed me as their mate. For years, I’ve been kept prisoner by my uncle, hidden like a piece of trash in the basement of his house. Beaten, broken, and neglected, hated by him for reasons I can’t even understand.
But one night on the back roads of rural Montana, I see a chance for escape. And I take it. I run. …straight into the arms of a naked man. No. Not a man. A wolf. Ridge, the man with dark hair and honey-colored eyes, is the alpha of the North Pack. I can hardly believe shifters are real, but how can I deny it when I’ve seen him transform with my own eyes?
I don’t trust him. I don’t trust anyone. Still, that doesn’t change the overwhelming pull I feel toward him. And when the alphas of the East and West Packs step forward and claim me as their mate too, I feel that same desperate urge to claim them back. But the part that scares me most? There’s only one reason all three of them could form a mate bond with me. I’m a shifter too.
Fated Magic is a reverse harem paranormal shifter romance. I have two rules when it comes to romances, no cheating, and no cliffhangers. While the book didn’t include cheating, it did have a big fat cliffhanger and that annoys me. This book however might have been worth it.
I’ve never really understood the popularity of the whole reverse harem thing though. It isn’t exactly cheating, it’s just an awkward struggle between one girl and 3, 4 or more men all vying for the same female. Still, despite my reservations on the subject matter, a friend of mine swore it was a great read and that I had to check it out.
I’m not going to lie, the whole reverse harem thing was just as awkward as I thought it was going to be, maybe even more. I just don’t have a thing for plural relationships. Sorry, that’s just my own personal preference. That being said, it didn’t ruin the story exactly. It was well written and it kept my attention the entire time.
I think that despite the awkwardness of 4 men all trying to win the same woman, it was handled rather well, until the very end of the story. That’s where it left us with a horrible cliffhanger that I hate to admit, I didn’t see coming.
The next book in the series doesn’t come out until September of this year. That’s a 5-month wait for those who like me, who read the book when it first came out.
The second book, Broken Bond I hate to admit, but I have already pre-ordered it. The first book really had my attention the entire time.
In fact, I say that as someone who doesn’t really enjoy shifter-type stories. I mean sure I liked Twilight but I didn’t really dive headfirst into the world of fantasy after that. This book might have changed my mind. I give it credit for that.
So all of that being said, please go out and pick this one up if you are a fan of paranormal romances. It was well written, albeit short, but well written nonetheless that kept my attention the entire time.
