Fated and Forbidden: An Otherworldly Boxset: A collection of 10 Paranormal and Urban Fantasy stories, all first in a series - Danielle Annett, Dina Given, A.L. Kessler, M.S Dobing, Frances Pauli, Tom Shutt, E.J. Whitmer, Amy Stearman, Siana Wineland, Rebecca Norinne Caudill

There are a bunch of things that I love about this box set.  I love reading books that are part of a series.  So the fact that all the stories that are included in this set are the first of its series is incredible.  I love PNR and Urban Fantasy.  There is definitely, a wide variety of supernatural creatures included in this set to keep me interested.


One of my favorite books included in this set is Cursed by Fire by Danielle Annett.  The supernatural community was revealed to humans six years ago at an event known as the Awakening. Mercenary, Aria Naveed, was hired to find a little boy and uncovers a bigger mystery.  Cursed by Fire is a fast-paced action filled novel that kept me on the edge of my seat.


Aria is a worthy heroine. She does not shy away from difficult situations, and she does what she feels is right. I like that she is effective at playing ignorant to learn things. She is smart and good at her job.

The mystery in Cursed by Fire is great. I was never quite sure where things were going to lead, so the plot stayed interesting. The epilogue definitely has me wanting to read the next book in the series. It left me a bit stunned.


Fated and Forbidden: An Otherworldly Boxset has nice diversity.  It’s a great addition to and paranormal library.
