Fortuna Sworn by K.J. Sutton

Fortuna Sworn
K.J. Sutton

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.

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

My own face was proof that beauty could“Fortunately for me, you faeries keep forgetting what I am,” I hissed.

The author gave me this ARC for a honest review which I initially said yes in my head without even looking into it because of the cover artwork. Totally eye-candy!

After looking into what this book would be about I was instantly interested once I read her synopsis – I normally do not read about fairies but like I work with fairies so why no? The fae is something I work with and understand in our realm so why not in the fictional sense. The story flew well as Sutton fits the story into a easy to read and sink your fangs into deliciousness that is to be adored. This is a gem and I should of read it faster.

“You did not allow us to break you. We do so love out broken things.”

Fortuna will try her best at saving her brother ,Damon, which is a super clear objective. Easy to see throughout the novel and easy to fallow along. She is a Nightmare and happens to be the last ones of their kind. There are so many different creatures in this book but it focuses on Fea. The others that are normal hits are touched on but not at all heavy. One thing that stuck with me was the notable flaws that Fortuna had that Sutton obviously written in with a smirk to make her feel so real like the rest of the characters. Of course there is a romance in the story where Fortuna meets a mysterious stranger that offers her marriage in-exchange this person will take her to Damon. Danger, Chaos and more romance than one hero can see coming…. The smallest of details for each character was very much appreciated which was so refreshing because I want to be lost within the pages.

Nightmares may be lies, but we dont have to be liars.

However, although I had loved the book, the characters, the cover the book went a wee to quickly. At 300 pages of quickness that a cheetah could rip into with such excitement and finish it before becoming absolutely lost in the text. While This was true at the same time there was moments that feed you a lot of information which was essential for the reader and to help change the pace slightly. I know I wanted these moments to last but I also wanted action…

Anyway, 4.5 stars! 🙂
