⭐⭐⭐ 3 out of 5 stars
I believe that’s the best way to start this review. Simply because this novel is full of action, to the point that it seemed more like a type of narration I would expect from a movie than a book.
Two conflicted families, both genetically enhanced, share the dominance over the technological research on the planet Rada. When Matias Baena finds Ramona Adler waiting to see him, he knows she needs an important reason to break the unspoken tradition of ignoring the competition. What he did not expect is that an intricate plan was put into action to attack both families, and the only solution is working together with an enemy…
Fated Blades is packed to the rim with adventure and action. It is sexy and smug and impressive. Fight scenes are multiple, followed by explosions and plot twists. There is so much going on in this relatively short novel that I felt like the plot was rushed. Maybe it’s just me, but I get a similar feeling with many popular action movies— there is so much going on, so much running or shooting that I tend to forget WHY something happened. The reasoning behind the continuous action blends into the background, dimmed by all the fireworks. I rather enjoy a slower plot, where the clues piece together like a puzzle.
Still, this is not a bad novel. If you love fast-paced stories, go ahead and read it. It will not disappoint you.
