Book Review: Fated Blades (Kinsmen #3) – Ilona Andrews

Rating: 5/5 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Genre: Paranormal Romance, Sci-fi


Another delightful Kinsmen novella from Ilona Andrews! First of all, let’s have a big round of applause for that beautiful cover, shall we? It’s gorgeous and fits the characters to a T.

Ramona and Matias are the heads of their respective warring families and both are stuck in a marriage of convenience with people they don’t love. When they are both betrayed, they have no choice but to work together to protect their families from humiliation and the huge blow to their reputation.

Ramona was an amazing woman, strong yet not cold. There was a warmth to her that made her so much more than just a ruthless leader. I loved her integrity and her sense of fairness.

Ah, Matias! Of course, we needed a sexy counterpart who would value Ramona and see how priceless she was. Their interactions left me in smiles.

The plot-line was excellent as we’ve come to expect from Ilona Andrews’ stories and that world-building left me with vivid visuals. This might be a novella but it had all the depth of a full novel. Fated Blades was excellent and that ending scene wasn’t just fantastic, it was perfect.

Stay tuned.


An uneasy alliance between warring families gets heated in this otherworldly novella from bestselling author Ilona Andrews.
At first glance, the planet Rada seems like a lush paradise. But the ruling families, all boasting genetically enhanced abilities, are in constant competition for power―and none more so than the Adlers and the Baenas. For generations, the powerful families have pushed and pulled each other in a dance for dominance.
Until a catastrophic betrayal from within changes everything.
Now, deadly, disciplined, and solitary leaders Ramona Adler and Matias Baena must put aside their enmity and work together in secret to prevent sinister forces from exploiting universe-altering technology. Expecting to suffer through their uneasy alliance, Ramona and Matias instead discover that they understand each other as no one in their families can―and that their combined skills may eclipse the risks of their forbidden alliance.
As the two warriors risk their lives to save their families, they must decide whether to resist or embrace the passion simmering between them. For now, the dance between their families continues―but just one misstep could spell the end of them both.



I'm a die-hard bibliophile and I'm also an introvert. My blog's about books, books and more books. (yep, that was easy) I might, from time to time, write about life and its vagaries. I like taking pictures of books and doing origami.
