Title: Fated Blades
Author: Ilona Andrews
Series: Kinsmen #3
The Adlers and Baenas have been enemies for generations but when they are both betrayed both leaders have to work together to save their families reputations.
The Kinsmen world is fascinating and filled with all different kinds of abilities. This book discusses the secare, which are a new type of kinsmen. They are very deadly and I really enjoyed the fights with their secare technology. Also I found the whole culture around the secare to be fascinating since they start their training around a year old and are trained to be deadly but also extremely efficient in other things. Also, I love the ideas of the dances that they practice and when paired, they seem like they would be very flirtatious and sexy.
Ramona and Matias were wonderful characters. They are both hard working, smart, and very deadly when they need to be. I quite enjoyed their banter and their hunt to find the betrayers. Ramona was a wonderfully strong woman but I also loved that she had a kind and caring side. She helps others when she can and doesn’t expect anything from it. Matias was the head of his family, and while a fair businessman, he could be quite ruthless when he needed to be.
These two started as enemies but quickly realized that there was more to each of them than their generation-long feud. I loved watching them slowly learn about each other while destroying their enemies. I can always count on Ilona Andrews to write wonderful and dangerous characters, especially heroines, with action packed stories.
Overall, this was just a wonderful and action packed enemies to lovers. I couldn’t put it down and really hope she writes more stories in this universe.
