Blog Tour Review- Hope's Decree (Book one of The Fated)

Hope’s Decree
Book one in the Fated Series
By Angela McPherson
 Genres: Young Adult Paranormal Romance
Rating: 5/5

Summary
When everything else is lost, there is always hope.
While most teens want an epic senior year, Trinity Whitebone hoped for a normal one. Being seventeen was hard enough. Having the emotions of everyone around you in your head made life more than a little difficult.
Until Blain Heros enrolled.
He screamed hot-god in jeans with just his walk. His intense stare warmed her skin like a thousand suns. Unfortunately, his interest in her seemed to run from blazing to freezing in the span of moments and left her nothing but confused. She could deal with things not being normal, but when life goes from strange to dangerous…
Trinity is the direct descendant of Pandora and fated to rectify the terrors released into the world by her curious ancestor. With powers she didn’t know existed and abilities she never wanted, Trinity tries to walk away from everything her life had become. She thought she could turn her back on her fate, until a band of rogue immortals discover who she is and will do whatever it takes to control her powers. Trinity is left with one decision…Embrace fate or die trying.

My Review
**I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review**
  I was so happy to find out this was Greek mythology I have always loved it and this book made me love it even more. This was a fantastic tale of Pandora's box, I loved how the author took the story and elaborated it in a beautiful and modern way, I just couldn't get enough. I have read a few books with their take on Greek mythology, but Pandora's box was a new one for me and since I have always been interested in the tale I was excited and I was not disappointed or let down in the least.
This book took me on an insane ride and I enjoyed every minute of it. Bad guys gone good, good guys gone bad, memory loss and a centuries old destiny, what more could a reader ask for. I could never know what was coming next and that was the most exciting part. I was also pleasantly surprised by the warriors and rouges it was like a fresh, different take on Angels vs Daemons or good vs evil, but if I can be so bold this was better for me, as I have started to feel like the Angel Daemon thing has been over done a bit.
 The one thing that bugged me a little was that both Blaine and Trinity seemed to flip-flop a bit to much for me. They always wanted to be with each other at opposite times it was a little frustrating. Then with Trinity she seemed to want her destiny and then she wants nothing to so with it, when you read it you will know why I don't want to spoil anything,but for me I did not understand it fully. But as you can tell by my 5 star rating it was a small annoyance that I got over quickly with all the adventure and excitement. I found Blaine and Trinity to be cute when they were admitting how they felt, and even when they were pushing and pulling their witty banter was funny and adorable. Speaking of witty banter I think Morpheus was my favorite I loved his smart ass attitude and even found him endearing when no one else did, I always saw his "light" in there somewhere.
The end left me with the feeling of impending doom and I am very curious to see were they go from here. I loved this book and I know many others will too.

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).

She loves to dance and sing, though her kids often beg her not to.
