I really liked this book a lot. I cant believe it was free. The story is about a girl named Scarlet who is about to go on her first date, without her parents knowledge, Rory Dean is a dream come true for Scarlet and after their movie date decide to go star gazing. Rory has different plans for their date and Scarlet ends up as a sacrifice to the queen of the underworld, and becomes a Shade, a being who must comsume souls to survive, and that is where the adventure begins.

This was the best book I have read in quite some time! I adore the great detail when describing the apperances of each of the characters. What a twist at the end! I couldnt keep my eyes off the screen, only took me two days to read it. Though I hardly ever pay money for books, I would to get the book following this! And, as a twelve year old, I do not reccomend this book to viewers under the age of 13. This is indeed a very twisted book, but I would read it again.

This book should nit be taken as a light read. Its long dark and twisted. No one under thirteen should read it. A simple reenagee decides to go star gazin with her all time crush. Stupid girl. She is tortured. Sent to the under world with out her soul. Mabye. Strangely She meets a demon. Kane. With hooves blue hair talons and, she should hate him he apparently does. The queen took over the under world with shades.fate is a shade. Ad shades will die if they dont eat souls. She has to save the under world. Terrified of herself, feeling alone, fate faces an armyof shades and the devil. She is alone....almost, becuase theres kane who she is drawn to although to her own protest fir he just might be to. A note from the writer:you now how this ends; can she save the under world, does kane trluy love her, can they ever be together, canshe fight the hunger to feed off souls, are there more questions i can ask. Just read the book. Its amazing. 633 pages Not an easy read Pg-13

....I admit it I have a habit of judging book by their cover. While it's a nice piece of dark fantasy artwork, I had a hard time with this one. The story sounded promising and it was free so I gave it a shot. I must say I was pleasantly surprised. It was not at all what I expected and for that I have to say good job. It was an interesting look at demons and other creatures of the underworld. There was something that bothered me about the heroine in the beginning, it's hard for me to explain exactly what it was. But her, shall we simply say transition certainly made her a more enjoyable character to follow.

Okay, I absolutely loved the book. It's one of the most well written books that I've read in awhile. Scarlet/Fate is a well written character and I feel like I can really get into her head. The characters are amazingly relatable, the scenes are admirably detailed, and the plot is superbly written. It flows nicely from character to character and I couldn't put it down. Daneille Q. Lee, I have read your other books, but this, in my opinion, is the the best yet. I applaud you and am eager to read the sequel. This has officailly become my all-time favorate book

This book blew me away its sorta dark but captivates you and pulls in. I could not put it down. Good vrs Evil..... But who is the worst evil? Get this book you wont be dissapointed..

I absolutly LOVED this book, its full of magical creatures and a love that was never thought to be... Scarlet finds herself in a teen crush with a boy named Rory Dean and she goes on her first date ever and sharing her first kiss with this boy who wants to sacrafice her for his own immortality... Scarlet finds herself in a strange, but unique place, making strange friends and facing her new Fate

So i was surprised by this book. I was so expecting this to be something else. I was impressed with the writing and liked the story. You might have to suspend your religous belifes but it was great.

Amazing must read. Cant believe its free, if she isnt charging for the follow up book i will be shocked! Dark story, demons, death, and things that go bump in the night. Over 13 for sure as far as age read. Cant wait for the next one as the ending said to be continued... arrggg.. hopefully this wont take long! ^_^

If you enjoy dark natured stories then this is it. Clever and imagnative world underfoot with rich detailsthat will make uyour hair stand throughout. Greatly researched and mostly accurate on myths and legends. Doesn't leave you high and dry on the ending but you will be begging for more

Wow! This was totally not what I was expecting; it was better!!! I cannot believe that it was free. I would have definitely paid to read this book. Anywho, this story offers something that none others I have read so far have been able to. I can't even name what it is, but the storyline and the characters kept me engaged in the story and actively trying to figure out the ins and outs of the story and problems they encountered. I would definitely recommend this book for anybody and everybody, it's amazing!!!

The stats are: 630-ish nook pages, no sex, no swearing (that I recall), YA paranormal romance mostly set in hell, dark themes, no vampires, and I can't complain much because it was free. Typical YA story: High school girl crushing on the bad boy, gains supernatural status and saves the day. Proofreading and editing is pretty top-notch compared to other free books I've read. Another commenter said not for young readers. I say if you let your kid read the Twilight series, this isn't any more violent and there's no sex, though there is an element of ritual satanism that kind of gave me the creeps.

Enjoyed it very much. Liked the characters and the ideas. Written well enough for me to easily imagine the scenery. Looking forward top the next one. And easy quick read.

A story that seems outstanding. The plot and characters are nothing more then outstanding. Its a story that at the end will leave you with tears of sadness then with joy. A book that stands out in not only writing but by how much this sorty is written.

I honestly liked the book. The plot was amazing and different. I just wish that the author said how scary it would be in the beginig. I am 12 about to turn 13 in a few days and I wish I could of kept reading it. In the begining this popular guy pretends to take interest in her but then ends up sacrificing her in the middle of a star while she was naked!!! It was just a little to twisted for me. I have not read the hole book yet and I archived it but I think I might continue reading it. I'm also a Christan and I am not sure if reading his is bad. I guess i will unarchive it and give it another try.

Wow! This book was simply..... brilliant. Absolutely amazing. Dont let the summary fool you. This book is MUCH better than what you believe it might be. This book has 633 pages and i read it all in a single night. I was so into this book, that it felt as if your actually watching it with your own eyes. I most DEFINITELY recommend this book. I cant believe it was free!!!!!! If anyone can tell me when book #2 is coming out on the NOOK, itd be greatly appreciated. P.S. - People look at the reviews to see if they want to purchase this book, NOT tocome to see people carrying on conversations and whatnot. So please, move your clan conversation to somewhere else. Thanks! :)

I was amazed. Never read anything like it, so many laughes and cries. I loved Fate Ever and Kane. They were so well created its hard to beleive they arnt real. Hell i wish they were. Cant wait untill i can find out what happened to Ever. The Fox says this is amazing. So much better than reading about sparkling fairies posing as retarded vampires. A much better love story aswell.

An absolutely astonishing book. I felt that, in the beginning, the writter was sor of new, sort of unsure of herself. But then the book got better and better!!!!! I definately recommend it!
