Fates Entwined (A Halven Rising Novel) by Jules Barnard. Release, + ARC Review

They can never be together. The notion is laughable. Humans are inferior, a scourge on the Fae and on the magic passed down to them by angels millennia ago. And if Keen finds himself drawn to the tiny human female, he keeps it to himself. He won’t add to the half-breed problem that threatens his people’s existence.
Reese can’t stand Keen. He criticizes her clothing, won’t answer a straight question, and is too handsome for her peace of mind.
Her entire life, people have pegged Reese for a shallow, ditzy blond. She won’t accept the stereotype from the large, arrogant Fae too. But after Keen saves her life, she begins to question what truly lies beneath his stoic demeanor.
Forced together, Keen and Reese fight to survive among enemies, and Keen makes choices Reese couldn’t have predicted. She glimpses a side of him that is protective and dangerously seductive.
But Keen refuses to acknowledge their connection.
Until he's faced with the decision to betray his people, or lose Reese forever.
*This mature YA series is intended for readers 17 years and older.
**Each Halven Rising novel features a different couple and may be read as a standalone, but an overreaching story arc connects the series, so it's fun to read them in order.**


Reese Fisher has been kidnapped by a power hungry Fae Queen,  to be used as a bargaining chip against her friends the new Halven rulers of the other Fae Kingdom.  
Keen Albrecht Is a Fae Warrior who has promised to rescue Reese.  What he discovers  when he finds her will alter his life forever.  
Our heroine has felt worthless all her life,  and her imprisonment and the attitudes of her captors make it worse.  But she has a big surprise to come.  
Our hero has always believed humans and the Halven are substandard beings and not worth his time.  He will soon learn how wrong he was.  
There are a lot of magical battles and emotional discoveries to be had.  This is the second book in the series. You could read it on it's own, but it makes much more sense read in order.  An exciting and action packed story.
