Forsworn Fate by Mia Pride - Book Review & Giveaway

Amazon USA Amazon UK Goodreads

Review by Anniek

Ceara has been promised to Garreth, a future King, ever since she was a little girl. Garreth used to play with her all the time, pretending they were already of age and married, protecting her like a faithful knight. They grew apart when they got older and where Ceara has always wished to honor the arrangement, Garreth seems appalled by the idea to take her as his wife. The night Ceara decides that she's had enough is the same night Garreth notices for the first time how beautiful she has become. Is it too late for him to get together with the woman of his dreams?

Ceara doesn't know that she's part of an old prophecy that deals with magical powers and an indestructible force. Will Garreth be Ceara's husband, will they both be ready eventually to fulfill their destiny? Are Ceara and Garreth prepared to face their part of the prophecy as husband and wife?

Forsworn Fate is a fiery romantic story. Ceara is a fierce redhead and has been given the element of fire. She won't back down from an argument and holds her own against Garreth. She doesn't intend to give in, just because there's an agreement. It takes some time for Garreth to open his eyes and I loved knowing what he feels when he fully sees the woman Ceara has become. Reading about this strong couple put a big smile on my face.

Forsworn Fate is a magical story about old prophecies, mysteries and true love. I love to read stories about old times. Mia Pride uses some of the old celtic language and this transported me back in time while reading her story. The sparks between Ceara and Garreth are flying off the pages and I couldn't read quickly enough to find out if they'd find their happily ever after. I fell in love with the Sisters of Danu series ever since I read Forbidden Fate. When I started reading Forsworn Fate, Mia Pride pulled me in again from the very first lines. Forsworn Fate managed to captivate me from beginning to end.


If you love to read about true love combined with legends, mystery and magic Forsworn Fate is a story you shouldn't miss. Please note that Forsworn Fate is A Sisters of Danu prequel novella and if you want to know more about the sisters and the prophecy you have to read the other stories in the series as well.

About Mia Pride

Mia is a full-time wife and mother of two rowdy boys, residing in the SF Bay Area. As a child, she often wrote stories about fantastic places or magical things, always preferring to live in a world where the line between reality and fantasy didn’t exist.

In High school, she entered writing contests and had some stories published in small newspapers or school magazines. As life continued, so did her love of writing. So one day, she decided to end her cake decorating business, pull out her laptop and fulfill her dream of writing and publishing novels. And she did.

When Mia isn’t writing books or chasing her sweaty children around a park, she loves to drink coffee by the gallon, get lost in a good book, hike with her family and drink really big margaritas with her friends! Her happy place is the Renaissance Faire, where you can find her at the joust, rooting for the shirtless highlander in a kilt.
