Sara's Review: The Challenge (Fated & Forbidden 0.5) by Kallysten
RELEASED: October 1st 2016
GENRE: Paranormal, supernatural
Centuries ago, Allendra and Zaan, wielding the Source together, created supernatural beings they hoped would bring peace and harmony to the world. Instead, strife, feuds, and wars took their toll. After lifetimes of watching her creations perpetuate misery and destruction, Allendra has had enough. She has been harnessing the power of the upcoming Blood Moon, and plans to strip every one of these beings of their supernatural powers. Zaan, long estranged from her, returns to ask her to reconsider, but the Challenge she issues might be more than he bargained for…
FOUR BOUNDLESS STARS
I was asked to read book 6 in this series and right at the beginning it gives you a link for a free download for this little gem of a prequel.
The Challenge, lays out the groundwork for the entire Fated & Forbidden series, which is a multi-author series. This reminded me a little of the 1001 Dark Nights series but this one should be more structured, since there is a set plot. The start to the series has a goddess getting ready to strip supernatural creatures of their powers. Yet her past partner convinces her to give all supernatural another chance. They each will have a month or all supernatural will no longer exist.
It’s a super quick read and I recommend reading it before you read any of the rest of the series, its free and worth it.
