Rating: 4 out of 5 stars


We all have tragic backstories in today’s world.

I wake up chained to the wall of a dark cell aware of two things: I failed my sister, and I smell my enemy.

When I’m taken to meet Dare, the alpha of the Silver Tip pack, I’m sure I’m about to lose my throat. The last thing I expect is for the Alpha to recognize me as his fated mate. No way is he going to let me go now, and I still have to find a way to rescue my sister.

As I plot my escape to save her, I find that if I leave, Dare could be killed by power-hungry members of his pack. And now he’s more to me than my fated mate—my heart is involved. With time ticking by on my sister’s life, I have to make a choice I never thought I’d face—my sister’s life or my mate’s? That’s if I can survive the undead shifters intent on killing me first…

I have to tell you all the truth…I honestly didn’t even read the blurb before I picked this puppy up. All I saw was shifter and Megan Erickson. It’s really all I needed to know. I really like Erickson’s books, her writing style, and her characters. Add in shifters, a genre I’m finding I like more and more, and I was all for it. I didn’t need to know what it was about.

And then this was me…

Who is this Reese person? Where are they? What’s going to happen? (I literally have all kinds of apprehension, right at the start.)

Oooooooooh. Hot guy Alpha Dare! Nice. I want to get to know him better.
Wait… this Reese person, he’s a dude? I didn’t know that! (I’ve clearly been paying attention.)

And then…

Oh awesomeness… Dystopia! I like this.
Wait… zombie shifters? Rescue mission? Amazing pack with more characters I want to meet?

And then…

OMG. That was so hot.

So, you get the picture a little, right? I had no idea what I was really getting myself into. And it was just so much freaking fun! 

Daring Fate was an unexpected pleasure to read. It’s one of those books I sit with and read in a day. It’s fast paced, high energy, and crammed with story plot. There is a new world to learn, but in doing so it never took me out of the main story, it just added to it. And the best part of that is there is so much more to learn. And I want to. I want to learn it all.

I loved each MC individually right off the bat. Together, it was easy to see the attraction, but harder to feel their connection. That part did take me a bit, but once I was there, the story got even better. I’m not one to go looking for books with super hot sex, but if you need to know that, look no further. There are some very steamy scenes between Dare and Reese. Like… WHOA.

I really like this book. A lot. I have a lot of excitement and feels running through me in anticipation for the second book in the series. I expect that it will be even better than this.


Megan Erickson is a USA Today bestselling author of romance that sizzles. Her books have a touch of nerd, a dash of humor, and always have a happily ever after. A former journalist, she switched to fiction when she decided she likes writing her own endings better.

She lives in Pennsylvania with her very own nerdy husband and two kids. Although rather fun-sized, she’s been told she has a full-sized personality. When Megan isn’t writing, she’s either lounging with her two cats named after John Hughes characters or… thinking about writing.
