Review: Braving Fate (The Mythean Arcana #1) by Linsey Hall

As chaos looms, a warrior queen is reborn
Bookish academic Diana Laughton has been having terrible dreams. Dreams of battle, dreams of blood... dreams so vivid she's living them day and night. When demons invade her quiet life, she wonders if she's going mad. Or if perhaps she's remembering a past life she had no idea existed...

In the midst of betrayal, he must protect her
Mythean Guardian Cadan Trinovante loved and betrayed Britain's warrior queen Boudica two millennia ago. Now he's tasked with protecting mortals whose lives affect the fate of humanity. His latest assignment is Boudica herself, reincarnated as a woman with no idea of her past or her fated future. Though in the irresistible form of Diana Laughton, it's possible Cadan has once again met his match...

To succumb to seduction could prove fatal
Thrown together in a shadowy world that exists alongside our own, Diana and Cadan must fight not only the demonic forces that want Diana dead, but a past and a passion that have lasted centuries. Their desire could be deadly. But as evil from the underworld unites against them, their only hope could be each other.

Diana shares a past and passion with Mythean Guardian, Cadan one that has lasted centuries, but as evil unites against them their only hope could be each other in this riveting paranormal romance.

A steady pace and intriguing world keeps readers hovering on the edge of anticipation and discovery with suspense, excitement and romance. The author captures the imagination with well written scenes and details and strong compelling characters that draw the reader deeper into the story.

Diana and Cadan’s attraction burns hot from the very start but the relationship is complicated by a centuries old past of violence and betrayals and a present filled with demons and a task that could very well end things before it ever gets started. The reader can’t help but follow the couple on their journey to stop evil from achieving its goal and a romance where they will have to learn not only from their mistakes but from each other if they hope to have a happily ever after.

The author has created a fascinating world with some very interesting elements and characters and as with all new worlds the reader must learn the workings, glossary and ways of this new world and this has lots of new things to learn and promises to take readers on some adventurous and exciting journeys and visits with lots of captivating and intriguing characters with some unique abilities.

I found this story to be entertaining and fascinating and while I was caught up in the story and wanted to know everything that was happening there were times that the story seemed to drag a little maybe because of so much information that had to be imparted and this one is complicated by the fact the heroine is reincarnated, so I only see the series as getting better, but I guess I’ll just have to wait and see won’t I.
