Everything has changed-people, my life-no one and nothing is as it seems. With each new threat, the

idea of normal slips farther beyond my reach.

A relationship with Blain is everything Trinity has ever wished for-even before she realized she wanted

it, but after the near fatal attack with Melia, something changes. The connection that binds them shifts,

and a dark force threatens to wedge the two apart. Trinity's only hope for the life she craves is stopping

Melia and her immortal Rogues.

But fate always has an ulterior plan.

As Trinity's eighteenth birthday draws near, more abilities manifest. But controlling them is a problem.

During an emergency Watcher meeting, some question if Trinity is strong enough to carry out the task she

is fated to uphold.

Secrets are revealed, and lives are lost. Melia has plans to awaken an ancient god whose wrath-if

released-is sure to create more devastation than Pandora. As new threats surface, fear spreads. Fighting

to keep the people Trinity cares for safe may be more than she can handle.

In the end, light may not be enough to outshine the darkness.

About the Author

Born and currently residing in Midland, Texas, Angela shuffles three busy children (not including her husband) all over the place. She works in a busy pediatric doctor's office as a nurse during the day, and writes at night. She is addicted to coffee-who isn't? And firmly believes chocolate can fix all-especially chocolate ice cream. She laughs a lot, often at herself and is willing to try anything once (she thinks). When Angela isn't rushing kids around, working or writing, she's reading. Other than life experience, Angela turns to a wide variety of music to help spark her creative juices. She loves to dance and sing, though her kids often beg her not to.

Hope's Deceit (The Fated #2) by Angela McPherson was a great addition to this unique original series. The second book in The Fates series, we're tossed back into this intriguing world and it's growing danger. Just so you know, this is a continuation series, so I highly suggest reading the first book, as this one pretty much picks up were the last leaves off. So you will be confused, and you will miss important plots points and character development. First things first. I had some mixed feels about the first book, and though I very much enjoyed this book and did like it better than the first, I still got some issues. Those issues all seems to be around our fated MC, Trinity. I hate to say it, cause I wanted her to become better, but in all, sadly, she didn't. I felt like she actually took a few steps back, when at this point in the story she should be buckling down and growing in her skills and her powers. Okay, yes, things kind of blew up and her beau is turning evil, so I do get some of her attitude, but, she wasn't growing as a character. There was no major character arc for her, plus her maturity level, for someone that's about to be 18 wasn't there. If it wasn't for the amazing plot and well crafted writing... I don't know. Now, the plot, detail, side characters and the overall story, is pretty great. The pandora's box premises that this story is based around is quite interesting, and it really pulls you in. The writing is engaging, and has a nice easy flow. The pacing issues that I saw in the first were not present in this one, as the story seems to have a more clear pathway. I like the drama around Blain, actually I was intrigued by his whole situation. It was a added twist that added a much needed layer to makeup for the weak MC. The detail is something else, and really pulls you into this world. Overall, though I am again a little split about this book, I like it, I liked the plot, I like where it's going, and I will be reading the next books to come in this series. I believe with some more work on the MC, this series has the potential to be something epic. So please take my high recommendation and my stamp of approval, that you will find an otherworldly, fresh original tale of what happens when you open that pandora's box. Happy Reading -E.A. Walsh

Hope's Deceit was a great 5 star read and book two in the Fated series. We pick up shortly after the end of Hope’s Decree. After the betrayal the watchers are starting to make plans. Blain helps Trinity find her calmness and them as a couple it felt right, they seemed to work much better together. Lesson number one: Don’t assume things, even if that assuming involved my beautiful Watcher boyfriend. Lesson number two: Never rely on what seemed to be correct. Trinity has stepped up and is determined to prove herself and be part of the battle. Her mother of course is protective of her, especially when she gets sick because of thought-overload. “I’ll fight for us. Always.” I don’t want to give away too much, just know that there is so much going on in this great read. I was on the edge of my seat waiting to see what was coming next. I loved all of the secondary characters. I had a lol moment at the Twilight reference from Crystal. And the ending, all I can say is Wow, how can it end like that? I want more. I look forward to the next book in the series.
