3 Stars for Fated (Shadow Mountain #1) by Indra Vaughn #MM #Paranormal @VaughnIndra @Dreamspinners


Title: Fated (Shadow Mountain #1)
Author Name & Publisher: Indra Vaughn (Dreamspinner Press)
Publication Date & Length: December 31, 2014 – 284 pgs


Two towns flank the looming Shadow Mountain. A dark myth of the Predator drifts through the dense trees, a tale Police Lieutenant Hart never paid much attention to. When one unresolved death follows another—some people dying without discernible cause while others are clearly, and often brutally, murdered—he can’t ignore it any longer. Truth may lie in myth, but this one is spread to deceive everyone. The Predator exists, but he’s not entirely human. Hart will have to find the connection between the mysterious figure and victims with only one thing in common: a faint tattoo on the backs of their necks, a mark left when someone healed their incurable diseases.

Isaac Lasko has been in love with Hart since he moved in across the street seven years ago. He’s been helping Hart renovate his home, and their friendship grows more intense with the years, but Isaac can’t help wishing for a deeper bond. When he finally breaks through the lieutenant’s armor, the mystery surrounding the Predator threatens them both. Help will come, but at a price.

  I am not one to give away spoilers when I review a book so it will be really hard for me to put into words why I liked and at the same time was not a fan of parts of this book.. So I will try to explain while trying not to give away any spoilers the best that I can.
  What I liked.. The mystery/ supernatural part of this book was so good and I really liked it!  Those parts of the book had me on the edge of my seat trying to figure out who did it.
  So on to the parts I did not like.. Let me say I am 100% not a fan of one of the MC’s playing Leap Frog between two beds.  Let me explain why I felt like Hart did that without hopefully giving away too many spoilers.  Two days before you were in bed with someone else then next thing you know your are instantly in love with other MC as soon as you see him.  Yea I am not believing that at all.
  Now when I read the blurb I had thought this would be Hart and Isaac.  Well you get maybe 10-20% of them together.  The rest of the book is mystery and Hart with someone who was not Isaac.  So I went into this book after reading blurb thinking it would be totally different then this book ended up being.
  I can’t really go into to much more of what I was not a fan of without giving a lot of this book away so I will leave this review with.. While some parts I really liked, there were some parts that were very unbelievable to me so it knocked down the rating for me.
