FORTUNA SWORN BY K.J. SUTTON
Fortuna Sworn (Fortuna Sworn #1) - K.J. Sutton

AHHHH I have so many burning questions! I can definitely say Fortuna Sworn will leave you wanting more in a wonderful (MADDENING) way.

 

I really enjoyed Fortuna and her journey into the world of the Fae. She was a good leading lady, strong, smart, audacious and stubborn as all get out. My kinda gal! It's everyone else I'm so unsure of! Every time I thought I had one of them figured out I was thrown for a loop and the story went in another direction I wasn't expecting. The men in Fortuna's life are quite puzzling. I was hoping to get a little better of an understanding of at least a few of them by the end but alas I will have to wait until the next book.

 

The pace is pretty consistently steady which makes for a quicker read. I thought the Fae politics were brilliant! The trials were very interesting but I did feel like the end of them was rather anticlimactic, which was surprising as they seemed to start of really strong.

You'll find many familiar mythical beings in this one, and even a few unique ones! I liked that the author really made the familiar ones her own though. With some subtle and some larger tweaks.


All in all an enchanting start to a magical tale. I'm looking forward to more...and really figuring out these mysterious men!

 

I received an ARC of this book from the author and this is my honest review.

Review: Fortuna Sworn by K.J. Sutton
Fortuna Sworn (Fortuna Sworn #1) - K.J. Sutton

 

 

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 received a free e-copy from the author and chose to leave a voluntary review. Thank you!*

 

 

4.5 ★

 

I absolutely adored this book. It had everything I love in a good book. Supernatural beings, snarky humor, romance, action and many surprises along the way.

We deal with the Fae mostly but there are plenty of other supernatural groups as well. Overall I must say the world building was awesome, I loved their world mixed with ours. The author did a great job with world building, no info dumping but also not too slow or boring. I also enjoyed that some of the lore we know, does not apply in this world. Some do and others get a fresh spin on it.

The overall pacing of the book was good as well, there were a few times it just sped up out of nowhere but overall it was steady and great.

I loved Fortuna, she was strong, funny and still had a good head on her and made good decisions……. Most of the time. I liked that she stood her ground and did what she thought was best no matter what others said. She also accepted her faults and short comings and made it work.

Collith, I really liked I also liked that he is somewhat of a mystery and we along with Fortuna have to figure him out.

Laurie was one of my favorite characters and I’m dying to know more about him.

Oliver, …. Hmmmm not sure to be honest, even at the end……..   Sometimes it just left me a bit confused.

Overall. I really loved this book. Going in, I had no idea this is a new series and when I saw the ending I knew…… But man, what an ending it was. We get a major cliffhanger that keeps you begging for more and that I, myself did not see coming.

If you like fantasy or even urban fantasy, I highly recommend this book I’m so glad I had a chance to read it and find a new series to look forward to.

 

 I give it 4.5 ★
