Fateful Book Review

Millennia Bidwell, Reporter

The book Fateful by Claudia Gray is an extremely interesting book that came out in 2011. When I read this, there was so many that caught me off guard. The author used many different genres to make the book more interesting and entertaining.

Fateful first starts out in Southampton, England where most of the characters are introduced to the reader. The book is written in the eyes of the young protagonist, Tess Davies. Tess is the ladies’ maid to Irene, although Irene’s mother, Lady Regina, likes to use her for her own needs. They go aboard the Titanic, not knowing the awful events that await them.

On the Titanic, Tess meets again meets first class passenger Alec Marlow that had saved her in the streets the night before. She then finds out the he is a werewolf and is running from a werewolf organization called ‘The Brotherhood’. Tess finds herself falling for Alec, but Lady Regina wants Alec to be Irene and him together instead.


While reading, I found this book to be a real page turner and I didn’t want to stop reading it. I thought that Claudia Gray did an amazing job of writing it, and I will read other books by her in the future. I would strongly recommend this book to anyone who loves reading historical fiction along with werewolves.
