We were meant to be seductive. We were designed to lure humans in. 

Fortuna Sworn is the last of her kind.

Her brother disappeared two years ago, leaving her with no family or species to speak of. She hides among humans, spending her days working at a bar and her nights searching for him. The bleak pattern goes on and on... until she catches the eye of a powerful faerie.

He makes no attempt to hide that he desires Fortuna. And in exchange for her, he offers something irresistible. So Fortuna reluctantly leaves her safe existence behind to step back into a world of creatures and power. 

It soon becomes clear that she may not have bargained with her heart, but her very life.

I think this is the perfect addition to those seeking a new twist on books involving the fae. I thought it was unique, dark, and intriguing. My only complaint is that I’m not much in the mood for a love triangle (maybe more, since there’s three potential love interests) because I’m always going to be team #whychoose. I can’t help it—all the love interests in Fortuna Sworn are swoonworthy in their own rights. The better question is, why would you WANT to choose?

That being said, I thought the story was incredibly written. The world is complex and at times kind of evil. I liked that a lot. Our main character, Fortuna, is stealthy, cunning, and fiercely loyal. I took an immediate liking to her and my love for her only grew throughout the book. Collith is the man who shows up out of no where and helps her in all kinds of ways. One of them being there to help her save her brother. But his offer comes with stipulations. 

We’re then taken on one hell of a ride where the fae hand out manipulations and betrayals as of they’re candy. Some aren’t what they seem. And the sexual tension and chemistry between Fortuna and those love interests is on point. Did I mention that I wouldn’t be sad if our lovely protagonist picked them all? 

I recommend for those looking for books similar to A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas. Similar but still unique and different in their own ways.
