Summary

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. 

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

Interesting

The start was amazing... then it dipped a little bit that was just the character building and the world building. This ended on a cliffhanger, so naturally I can’t wait to listen to the next book. There’s so many directions this story could go in and there’s so many unanswered questions I am eager to find out.

I love the premise, almost awesome

I love the premise of this story. The conflict between H/h is believable. With such a great idea and interesting characters, I am enjoying these stories. Connith, the king, remains mysterious and very appealing. He starts out strong, but author changes and lets him kind of drift. I was hoping for more of the interesting things he did in opening chapters. He deserved better. Fortuna is set on “abrasive”, and she has good reason!, however it’s hard to like a constantly angry, vengeful character. I kept thinking she would have been awesome if her thoughts and speech could have been tweaked a bit. Little more creative.
Also, It’s very original concept to have a sort of love triangle, and even a possible fourth intriguing “friend,” two of whom exist, well, in a way only Fortuna can perceive! So very unusual, but it really works somehow.
There was so much to explore that isn’t touched, which is too bad.
The narration started out okay, though I don’t think everything Fortuna says or thinks needed to be rendered SO angry, or so snarky which really grates. Some variation on delivery in general needed. Strangely, About halfway, the different voices begin to blend. By the end, Fortuna often sounds more masculine than the men. The narrator apparently can’t do the deeper range for men but she adequately distinguishes them at first. I prefer some change in the register, but it’s okay how she handled. But it’s a jolt when towards the end they start sounding the same and it’s easy to mix them up.

This book is so amazing!!!! 😱

I don’t know why this isn’t as popular as it deserves to be. I’ve love Acotar, Cruel Prince & Throne of glass, but this book is at that level! I couldn’t put this down. Fortuna Sworn is my fave heroine. This book had no heavy info dumping. It was fast-paced & no unnecessary, annoying drama.

Meh.

Character development and dialogue was lacking and scenes that were probably meant to me emotionally charged fell flat.
All of the characters voices sounded the same- there was no variation.
The concept that fae descended from fallen angels was interesting

Awesomely unexpected!

I love everything about this book! The main character,
Fortuna Sworn is a bad ass with such a unique magical gift - the whole story line is super interesting and kept me on my toes!

The narrator's voice is perfect for Fortuna! She really brought the characters to life! So glad that she narrates book 2 and 3 😁

ACOTAR Copy

I'll start by saying that I did enjoy this book. My main issue is that this story and the characters are so close to one of my favorite Sarah J Maas books (A Court of Thorns and Roses) only this one lacked the build up and detail that Sarah created. I would guess that K.J. Sutton used ACOTAR as her inspiration. I like the Fortuna as a character and the author has a unique take on the origin of the supernatural creatures that I am enjoying. I hope the story diverges from the ACOTAR line of events in the next book since I could easily predict what was going to happen after I realized the similarities.

The narrator did a great job. I listened to the Fable series and enjoyed her performance there as well. It was a pleasant surprise to hear her again.

Omg this book gave me anxiety. I can’t wait for for book two! I can’t wait to see what happens to Fortuna next! So much happened in the 11 hours, it really was a roller coaster of emotions. I need book 2 now PLEASE!!
