Fateful by Claudia Gray Review

Name: Fateful
Publisher: HarperTeen
Release Date: September 13th, 2011
328 pages

Eighteen-year-old maid Tess Davies is determined to escape the wealthy, troubled family she serves. It’s 1912, and Tess has been trapped in the employ of the Lisles for years, amid painful memories and twisted secrets. But now the Lisle family is headed to America, with Tess in tow. Once the ship they’re sailing on—the RMS Titanic—reaches its destination, Tess plans to strike out and create a new life for herself.

Her single-minded focus shatters when she meets Alec, a handsome first-class passenger who captivates her instantly. But Alec has secrets of his own. He’s in a hurry to leave Europe, and whispers aboard the ship say it’s because of the tragic end of his last affair with the French actress who died so gruesomely and so mysteriously. . . .

Soon Tess will learn just how dark Alec’s past truly is. The danger they face is no ordinary enemy: werewolves exist and are stalking him—and now her, too. Her growing love for Alec will put Tess in mortal peril, and fate will do the same before their journey on the Titanic is over.

In Fateful, New York Times bestselling author Claudia Gray delivers paranormal adventure, dark suspense, and alluring romance set against the opulent backdrop of the Titanic’s first—and last—voyage.

My Review:
What an awesome book! At first I wasn't too sure if I was going to like this one because I didn't love the Evernight series, but I LOVED this book!

One of my favorite parts about this book was that the plot was really original! I really liked how most of the story took place before the Titanic sunk, instead of having it take place during just that event.

I really liked the relationship that Alec and Tess had throughout the novel. I love epic romances and this is definitely one of my favorite ones!

Also, I was SO shocked by the ending! I don't want to give anything away but I really hope that their is a sequel to this book!

Overall, I highly recommend this book! It has the perfect blend of paranormal romance!

My Rating:
Five out of Five Stars


  1. I'm glad you liked this. It looks really good! I can't wait to read it :)

  2. This book sounds amazing! Love period settings and it's about time somebody re-imagined a Titanic story (James Cameron has had it long enough!) Going on the TBR.
