I love the idea of magic ties drawing you to a place so special you have to go. A brilliant book with past flashes explaining the whys of Havenwood with hints of whats to become. A good read. I really enjoyed it E J. And didnt put it down till finished.
Fated Beginnings is a novella in the Legends of Havenwood Falls (multi-author) series by E.J. Fechenda.
Daniel MCabe is a mountain lion shifter who has been on the move all of his life in order to stay safe from humans. He has seen and learned that humans mistreat or kill anything that that is different to them. After his father dies Daniel decides to move back to Colorado, a place that he has always loved and considered home. It seems like the move is meant to be when he sees an advertisement for a job right up his alley in a place called Havenwood Falls. He has an interview and he is thrilled to get the job.
One of the first people he meets is Colleen Campbell. She is beautiful, bold and human! He learns that Havenwood Falls is a safe haven for the supernatural, but that they also live alongside humans quite safely and without their knowledge for the most part. There is an instant zing of attraction between Colleen and Daniel, so much so that he thinks that she might be his 'mate' the 'one' that he must bond with. How can that be when she is human?
Can he trust Colleen enough to tell her what he is, will her reaction make or break them. And what of the vampire that unknown to her wants her for himself?
This may be just a novella but it certainly had plenty of things going on in it. There wasn't a dull moment, and I absolutely loved reading it.
As part of Ang'dora Productions Review Crew I was able to read E J Fechenda’s Fated Beginnings as an advance review copy.
Daniel McCabe didn’t have a settled childhood, moving from place to place trying to avoid repeating the experiences of his fathers childhood, experiences which taught them that humans fear and mistreat anyone who is different.
When a job opening brings him to Havenwood Falls, Daniel feels more at home than he ever has before.
Having already been introduced to the McCabes in Fate, Love & Loyalty I was pleased to learn more of the family history in this Havenwood Falls Legends novella and I look forward to seeing how the family blends with into other Havenwood stories.
