Fates Divided is a paranormal romance novel by Jules Barnard. Because the characters are all college-age, it can also be classified as a new adult romance as well. Fates Divided by Jules Barnard is a paranormal and new adult romance novel that came out at the height of the Twilight era, likely benefiting from the popularity of that series. Its story revolves around Elena, a young woman discovering her fairy magic and her fae lineage.
Fates Divided is one of those books that was able to parlay the popularity of Twilight into a book deal as it came out during a time when Twilight fans were craving more, desperate for the next big thing. This is why, years ago, you had so many publishers pushing out paranormal romance as fast as they could.
The story is about a girl named Elena who finds herself caught up in a mystery involving the magical world of Fae. Elana never knew her mother, who was a fae. She had always lived with her father, who was human. It wasn’t until she got older that her fairy magic began to manifest itself.
The book wasn’t bad, but it also wasn’t great. To be honest, I don’t think it would have gotten a publishing deal had it not been for the fame of Twilight and the publishing world’s need to find the next great book to appeal to those Twilight fans.
It’s not the worst book ever, but I wouldn’t recommend it if you had to pay full price. If you got it on a deal or picked it up at Amazon on one of those free discount days, then maybe. But it’s totally not worth paying full price.
