[Archive] LITERAL ADDICTION's Review of Breaking Fate

Georgia Lyn Hunter loves to create characters who’ll take you to the far and beyond to unforgettable adventures, steamy encounters and heart-stopping love stories…

She grew up in the tropical climate of South Africa and currently lives abroad with her family.
When she's not writing or plotting her next novel, she loves trolling flea markets, buying things because they're so pretty, travelling, and being with her family.

She'd love to hear from readers.

Breaking Fate


An immortal without a soul is bad enough. But when his only tether to remaining honorable is his addiction to bone-crushing pain, it makes Blaéz a dangerously loose cannon.

A Guardian sworn to protect mortals from supernatural evil, Blaéz straddles the edge of darkness as his needs grow. When a good deed brings him to the doorstep of a female unlike any other, one whose touch ignites emotions long lost in the hellish pits of Tartarus, he’s determined not to lose her. She belongs to him. But she’s human. Forbidden. And bringing her into his life may just destroy them both.

Darci Callahan has given up on love. But when a lethally handsome stranger suddenly appears late one night, she finds herself inexplicably drawn to the captivating man with the pale, empty eyes—a man who awakens in her a desire she never believed possible. Except Blaéz brings more than unexpected passion to her life, he brings danger.

In this treacherous new world of gods and demons, Darci soon discovers a heart-shattering truth and the twisted games the gods play. Caught in the crosshairs, she’s forced to accept that, sometimes, no matter how much you love someone, you have to love them enough to let them go...

Our review, by LITERAL ADDICTION's Pack Alpha - Chelle:

An enchanting world of danger and darkness, Hunter captivates with her sexy tale of fallen gods, demons, and forbidden love that conquers all.

Imagine if you will a broken hero (you know the ones we all love!!), one that was tortured for ages and left a shell of a man. One who goes out of his way to hurt himself just so he can FEEL. That is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to Blaez. He was left an emotionless shell, a Guardian with a single purpose--to kill. Now, imagine trying to write that! A hero without emotion. One with a very, very important job, with people who depend on him, and all the while he can only pretend... I was worried. After all, how do you properly portray a hero who has no soul, no emotion? I shouldn't have worried! I instantly liked Blaez, and when he me finally meets Darci and he literally blossoms it was something truly magickal to behold!

And then there's Darci. She never really felt whole herself. Sequestering herself away with her books, keeping almost everyone at arm's length. And then her quiet, ordered, proper life gets blown to hell by this sexy as sin Immortal, who quite frankly, is an a$h*le. Watching her fight and claw to keep her order, but letting herself feel what just seemed to come naturally between her and Blaez was awesome. I really related to Darci, and I think a lot of other readers will, as well.

So all in all, what do you get with Breaking Fate? I pretty much said it all in my opening sentence, but it will definitely tug at your emotions. All of them. I laughed, I raged, I worried, I swooned (seriously, the quote-worthiness of this book is insane!) and when all was said and done, I felt utterly satisfied, and that's what you want when you read a good book, right? Some readers might not like the tennis match of emotions, but that's what I look for in a good read. I WANT to be made to feel, and all sorts of things...

I'm enchanted by Ms. Hunter's Fallen Guardians world and I cannot wait for more.
