Forbitten Fae: Fated Guardians Book 1 is a paranormal novel by T. W. Pearce. Vampires have walked amongst the living for centuries and at their head is Sir Adrian Sutton, the Vampire King. In the late 90s, in New York City, Adrian's safe haven called Hell’s Kitchen serves as a paradise for the vampires and a barrier to keep the Usurpers and Guardians at bay. But the Guardians have sneaked in a spy in the form of a young fae called Moira Collins. She mends the vampires’ wounds during the day and reports to her true masters come nightfall. Her once-balanced double life soon becomes dangerously complicated as she and Adrian get closer. She sees only life in him, and he feels truly alive by her side. However, their newfound bliss is destined to end as an unknown enemy threatens the fragile peace between the dead and the living.
Forbitten Fae did an excellent job at keeping me enthralled by the supernatural world’s politics, the endearing romance, and the thrilling plot. The intrigue it sparked remained throughout my reading time. T. W. Pearce did a stellar job at creating the vampires’ hierarchy and I enjoyed getting to know how their empire worked. The thought that went into creating such rich lore and the care taken in crafting this structured world is greatly appreciated. Another thing I loved about this book is how Pearce allows the budding romance to develop organically, as opposed to the flawed approach that most authors use. I found the plot stimulating and well-written, but more importantly, it was a fun read. Every element, from the characters to the action scenes, was beautifully integrated.
