Review: Chosen by Fate by Virna DePaul

Chosen by Fate
by Virna DePaul
(Para-Ops # 2)

Wraith was woke up 10 years ago, dead. With no memories of her life before she woke up and every touch causing her pain she joins the Para Ops team in exchange for help searching for her past. But her time is running out, all wraiths die in their 11th year and she still has no idea who she is. She doesn't want Caleb O'Flare to get too close, he reaches past the ever present pain and offers her pleasure making her long for something other then the peace of finally being able to die.

I was looking forward to this book, Wraith was one of my favourite characters in Chosen By Blood, she has an attitude and kicks ass, what's not to love? So I was a little disappointed in this book. I wanted to like it but I just didn't feel the connection between Caleb and Wraith, and as the book went on the push and pull of their relationship did start to annoy me, they would get close, Wraith would say something nasty to push Caleb away, he would back off, rinse and repeat.

However, I did like seeing the development of the main story and I can't wait to see what will happen, especially with Zeph, a double agent and Knox's (the hero of the first book) brother. The story arc for this book was about a sudden rash of date rapes perpetrated on feline weres, I thought the investigation was quite interesting but was completely spoiled by the conclusion, it was just so...strange and illogical and the story got a little vague from there.

The next book is about Dex Hunt, the werewolf of the Para Ops team, and I am looking forward to it, he showed such a sweet and caring side in this book, especially toward Lucy and I would really like to see his HEA.

Suz, I felt exactly the same way about this book. I do have the next one on the way. I hope that one is better.

I haven't read this series yet but will check it out as it was recommended by a friend (the series, not the book mentioned here). Thanks for the review.

New to me series! Sorry it was disappointing. I'm curious though so I'll probably check it out.

Thanks for the review!
