    One thought on “Fateful”

    1. 1.5 stars, DNF. On second thought, let's not read Fateful. 'Tis a silly book.Abandoned at 45% after an encounter with cutesie little winged fairies, because the conversation with the fairies induced severe eye-rolling, and that was seriously the last straw. At that point I skipped to the end and read it just to satisfy my curiosity. Set in London, this is a Twilight wannabe, except not as well written. That may be hard to believe for some, but trust me on this. Also, I really should have stopped [...]

    2. Wow. This book sucked so much it hurt. It felt like it was written by a 13 year old girl who's afraid of the dark. How about, don't write a book about vampires that makes Stephanie Meyer's vampires look bad ass. And that's saying something. Seriously. The dudes in this book (especially the hero) were lukewarm pansies. No bad assery what so ever. I'm usually more specific on what's wrong with a book, but there are so many things wrong with it that it would be like explaining why my 3rd grade essa [...]

    3. Poorly written copy-cat book with contrived situations and annoying characters. I downloaded it because I was looking for something to read while on a trip. I should have just banged my head against the plane window repeatedly instead - at least then I would have just had a headache instead of a headache AND all of that sappy language going through my mind. Take my advice, don't be wooed by the $.99 price it takes for the electronic download and use your money to buy a candy bar instead.

    4. I have to admitI was a bit skeptical of this book when I was asked to read it by the author for the purpose of reviewing. I LOVED Twilight with a passion but have found it almost impossible to enjoy another vampire or paranormal book since, so I was convinced I wouldn't enjoy it. This book was an exception. I really liked it!! Fateful is about young Danielle who moves to London to go to school there and live with her Uncle, Aunt and cousin. Soon after her arrival in London she is attacked, but t [...]

    5. I could not stomach all the cheesy and cliche phrases that are contained in this book. I gave it to about 40% (generous on my part) before I started skimming to the end. I don't understand the other reviews that say this book is "well written" (they must have been friends of the author). I was especially annoyed with the explanations of the British slang words. Either put a footnote at the bottom of the page or a dictionary at the end. Don't incorporate it into the dialogue. The conversations en [...]

    6. Okay guys we have a Must read new author Cheri Schmidt. I can honestly say I love this book and can't wait till the next two come out! Yup we are lucky this is the first book in the three book series! I was quickly pulled into this story and loved every minute of it. Cheri is a very creative writer and knows how to tell a story. This book contains magic, vampires (good and evil) lots of passionate kissing, fairies, suspense and some unexpected twists! This book is for everyone. I really enjoyed [...]

    7. I really enjoyed this book someone loaned it to me on the Nook Now im about to buy it for my self soon I really enjoyed it and I would recommend it too anyone who needs a good read I can relate to Danielle in the book because I am a huge Mr. Darcy fan and lets say you get 14 days with lend me and I read it and stayed up all night. One of my absoulute favorite reads My signed copy of it came in the mail yesterday. YES

    8. My Review:Nineteen year old Danielle Darcy who is a huge Jane Austen fan and a karate whiz. Leaves Colorado to stay with her aunt Charlotte, uncle Nick and her cousin Brianna in London while attending art school. She hopes to find her own Mr. Darcy when she's there, of course she knows it's silly to wish for something that, naive even. But in the past she has always seen men lacked respect for woman, a growing trend it seemed However that all changes on her second night there in London, when she [...]

    9. I've been seeing a lot of this book lately. It just seems to keep popping up, and I realized . . . I haven't written a review yet! Gasp! I read this book for the first time . . . hmm, a few years ago I believe, but I didn't just stop at the first reading. After I was finished, I had to grab the other two, and ever since have been trying to wait patiently for more books by this fabulous author to come out. (Ok, not so patiently lol.) On to the story: Danielle is a girl I really liked from the get [...]

    10. Free Download. First of all can I just confirm that this is NOT a rip off of Twilight. Its a little unthinking and unimaginitive to assume every Vampire romance needs to be compared to The Twilight Saga. I am a huge Twilight fan but I adore supernatural romance and unfortunatly vampires will always share common similarities, however this story gives a new outlook on vampires and the whole good versus evil theme. This story was a beautiful love story first and foremost, between a Vampire and a hu [...]

    11. Thanks Cheri for creating a paranormal book that I feel comfortable letting my teenager read!I enjoyed the vampire world that Cheri has created. The book starts off with an attack that is foiled by a good vampire. It starts off with a creepy feel to it. Cheri builds up to the when Danielle finds out that there are really vampires by creating the lore and local stories before hand.Danielle is visiting her relatives in London. She has come from the United States to go to school. She finds everythi [...]

    12. DNF- I will admit that I have read plenty of stupid books and admit that I have enjoyed most of them but this book was annoying and I gave up.I'm a sucker for a book that is set in London so I gave it a whirl. The first thing that annoyed be was Danielle. An American student in London who seems helpless (she can't seem to walk in a straight line without getting lost) and is obsessed with the Jane Austen ideal. Now, nothing against Austen (I enjoy her books) but I don't get the whole "I want to f [...]

    13. I just finished “Fateful” and thought I should write a review before going on to the rest of the series.The romance was well-written and so very hot (in a clean YA way). I was feeling the characters’ passion for each other and swooning the entire time. If you love sweet romances, you’ll like Danielle and Ethan’s story. Ch. 8 was probably my favorite. I could envision myself right there with the characters! The descriptions are breathtaking.The writing really makes you feel like you’r [...]

    14. Okay, So sorry that it's taken me this long To say the least, I absolutely fell in LOVE with this book. It was very well written w/an amazing story line I know, I know, it follows the whole vampire falls for the girl line BUT, trust me, it's NOTHING like Twilight. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed the Twilight Saga, but not every thing has to be like that Cheri definitely captivated me with this book So much so, that after I read this book in ONE day, I turned around and bought the next book Fearful [...]

    15. INGENIOUS!I LOVED THIS BOOK! If you love fairytales, this is a book for you. The characters, the plot, and the setting are fantastic. From the beginning, Cheri’s writing drew me right into this story. I could just image walking down the streets of London while having to watch out for treacherous vampires or hiking in a wooden field looking for magical fairies. I enjoyed this story so much. Fateful had romance, danger, and a perfect ending to this book. Let’s face it, who doesn’t love when [...]

    16. Interesting. Some parts reminding me a lot of Twilight, yet there were some original takes on vampires as well that I thought were quite intriguing--like what happened at the end. How was it the no one ever figure that out before??? I mean in this story. :)Danielle goes to England to go to school and live with her cousin/aunt/uncle and almost immediately encounters a vampire. It's a fight of good versus evil; mortal versus immortal. With a good dose of vampire romance thrown in, in the form of E [...]

    17. This is the worst book I have ever read. I spent the 99 cents after reading the other reviews that were positive and boy do I regret it. I could have spent that money on anything at the dollar menu and felt more satisfied. Something that really could have helped this book was an editor. It was really hard to look past how many grammatical errors there were. The conversation was very unrealistic, it was like the conversations in foreign language text books. The kind that people who speak that lan [...]

    18. Overall I liked this book. I will admit that it started a little slow. However, it got better as it went along. There were things that reminded me of Twilight but not a ripoff of it though. I will probably read thd next book and see what happens. I was intrigued by the ending.

    19. Sorry but really not enjoying this book. I am a big reader & happily read through some badly written books ignoring spelling mistakes but as an English person this book takes the biscuit!! Where did this lady learn English slang? It's not cute to write with it, I note most of the good reviews appear to be American, just wonder if any other British feel the same? I just came across the use of the word pictures :0/ erm a picture is something a camera takes or something you hang on a wall, see [...]

    20. I hate giving low starred reviews but there were so many things that turned me off, although I finished it.ly. And I hardly ever pick a book apart but I just have to mention a few things that really irritated me.First, it really needs someone to fix the spelling mistakes and the extra commas. I can, handle a few, but come on, your and you're? (yeah exactly like that)Fairies? WTF? And talking fairies with fairie dust at that. It just seemed so far fetched that it really made the story seem cheesy [...]

    21. livetoread-krystalThis book is a phenomenal paranormal young adult read. The plot concerns star crossed lovers, Danielle and Ethan. The problem with their relationship? Danielle is mortal while Ethan is a vampire. Danielle moves to London early in the book to stay with her aunt, uncle, and cousin. She plans to go to school there. The story leads right to action, Danielle is accostedy to be saved by Ethan. They experience an immediate connection. However, Danielle could not have chosen a worse po [...]

    22. Awful book,horrible writing and annoying characters.We already have Twilight for lame, misogynistic vampire antics.We dont need a rip off of twilight , written by what seems like a 13 yr old. We dont need another dumb teenage girl being glorified by a holier-than-thou vampire because they have some soul deep connection.I read about a third of the book and couldnt take it anymore. I mean , the author hasnt even tried to change the situations and the premise of the story at all. Its just a renditi [...]

    23. This book was not at all what I had expected. Of course, I expected it to be a romance; after all, Danielle has a thing of for the fictional hero, Mr. Darcy, in "Pride and Prejudice". She hopes to find her own Mr. Darcy in England when she goes there to live with her aunt, uncle, and cousin in order to attend art school. She does meet her Mr. Darcy; however, Ethan (as he is named) is more than just a mortal man. He is a vampire. This was NOT what I expected because nothing I read about the book [...]

    24. AAAAAaaaaahhhhhhhhh . from the moment I began this book I knew, I KNEW, it was going to suck. The writing within the first paragraph was bad, very bad. It's hard to put into words how I felt about this book - except the word sucked. I made it 5% before I was like FORGET it. I didn't know when I started out that it was a vampire book but after I read other people's comments it kind of made sense -- what kind of gave it away, you say? The uncle telling a freaking Dracula story in the first chapter [...]

    25. So this book starts out with the scene where Edward rescues Bella from bad men when she's lost Oh wait, wrong book.I don't know if it was the point of view or the style of writing, but the voice was frustrating and juvenile. Everything felt repetitive, and maybe thats because I already read the better version of this book called Twilight. Oh, and I just have to know - did Danielle think she found a hero straight from her Jane Austen books? - ugh, if I have to hear THAT one more time!!! The conn [...]

    26. When I first read this book, I read to compare it to others and to find faults and holes in the plot. I constantly tried to second guess the author and figure out the plot as it went along. In fact, since the author is one of my best friends, I would email her with questions as I tried to guess where the story was going. While a male and not necessarily interested in vampire romance books, I did enjoy the book. And by the end I was pleasantly surprised by the plote way the book turned and ended. [...]

    27. Awful, juvenile writing. Not even worth my time considering how long it is. The main character came across as a child rather than a university student. Seriously, what college student sits down in front of their uncle for "story time"? Her emotions where extremely contrived as well. The heroine gets afraid enough to suffer nightmares from hearing a story about real-life Dracula. Please, spare me the bullshit. I could tell a 2-year-old that story and they wouldn't be half as afraid as our heroine [...]

    28. I went into this knowing it was going to be a Twilight knock-off because let's face it, nobody has original ideas, anymore. It was WORSE than a Twilight knock-off, because it was a Twilight *AND* Pride & Prejudice knock off. Only with horrible slang (everything was either 'yummy' or 'scrummy') and completely immature characters (even the centuries old vampires). Worse, about halfway through the book she forgot the plot needed a place to go, and started just writing this tediously long explan [...]

    29. This book just drags on and on. What makes it worse is the repetitiveness of it all. I know the book description already mentions how big of a Jane Austen fan Danielle is, but it's mentioned at least a dozen more times (just looked it up - Austen's name comes up 14 separate times in the book)!Anyhow, I thought Danielle was too meek and helpless. Every chapter she mentions how easily she gets lost and no amount of help, directions, map, etc would help her. Lo and behold a GPS does the trick. Who [...]

    30. I liked the idea of this story especially at first. It lacked depth however and seemed to drag; I had a hard time sticking with it. I honestly had to skim through a lot of it. There were too many similarities to Twilight. I enjoyed Twilight but this needed to be something very different or follow the same lore in order to keep my attention. It had some similarities but different enough for you to doubt it’s logic and not enjoy the lore portrayed here. There were many things in it that just did [...]
