Fate brought them together.
Now it’s threatening to tear them apart.

As the last in a long line of demon slayers, Evie’s destiny is to end the war that has raged for centuries between humans and demons.

Lucas, the half-Shadow Warrior half-human who was sent to kill her, has betrayed his own Brotherhood and his family to fight alongside her.

With an army of unhumans on their tail, Evie and Lucas are forced into an uneasy alliance with a group of rogue Hunters who offer protection and the promise of answers.

As the past is untangled and the dark history of the Hunters revealed, Evie discovers that severing the realms is going to require a lot more than just fighting. It’s going to require a sacrifice – one that only she can make.

…More than realms will be severed.

The Review: 4.5 stars!

Severed is the highly awaited sequel to Sarah Alderson’s Fated and she really doesn’t disappoint with this exciting and enthralling instalment.

Starting straight after the events in Fated, Evie and Lucas are now on the run and are trying to seek shelter. They end up at Lucas’s sister while they try and find a group of rogue hunters, who they believe can help them win the battle against the Brotherhood.  While training with the hunters, Evie finds out that in order to end the battle, a big sacrifice needs to be made – by her, and it’s one that she and Lucas never saw coming. Are they destined to be torn apart or can they fight fate once and for all?

I’ve been eagerly awaiting this sequel for ages and I have to say I was pretty worried it wouldn’t happen seems as it book two and three wasn’t picked up by Simon & Schuster. Thankfully, Sarah made sure Evie and Lucas’s story was not left unfinished and now we have Severed! Yay, thanks Sarah! I fell in love with this world the first time around and now I’ve fell in love with it all over again. It has such amazing characters, an amazing story and a fantastic forbidden love story and you know I’m a sucker for that. Really what more could you want from a story?

Evie grows so much this time around, she’s determined to fight back and prove herself that she can take down the Brotherhood – even though she does have mini breakdown where she feels like she can’t. However, she changes and becomes stronger and faster and realises that she was always destined to become what she is. And Lucas, strong, brave, gorgeous Lucas that will do anything in the world to protect Evie – even if that means putting his own life in danger. I adore the relationship between these two and if anything, it intensifies even more in the book. I also really loved the new secondary characters, Lucas’s sister, Cyrus and the gang made this book so entertaining and I’m hoping we haven’t seen the last of them.

Severed really does provides everything for every reader. It has action, romance, heart-warming scenes to dangerous scenes and that ending - oh my gosh, I didn’t see it coming! I literally was like “Sarah did not just do that?!” but she did, and it’s left me wanting, no – needing – more of Evie and Lucas. I’m hoping the release of book three comes around quickly because I need to know there will be a happy ever after for these characters. 

A huge thank you to Sarah Alderson for giving me the opportunity to review this book.

This is brilliant review Donna, I love how we both posted our gushing reviews on the same day! I definitely need more of these characters asap too! :)

I just come from reading another gushing review of this and.... ASJKFHDSFNJKN!!!! You both comment about this ending. I'm kind of TERRIFIED to see what happens and all kinds of horrific theories are swimming around my head now haha. This sounds amazing, but really, have we come to expect anything less from Sarah? Her books are so darn addictive.



Super eager to meet Cyrus, aswell! Fantastic review, Donna. Definitely starting my copy soon!
