Wicked Fate by Monique Stokes is LIVE!
Three monsters are after Zada’s heart.
One is a vampire prince who’s been waiting for her for centuries.
She’s so beautiful, and she fits perfectly into his plans for the future as his bride. This world is changing, and they’ll rule it all. Together.
One is a hybrid, a mixture of bloodlines.
She’s fated to be his mate, and he’ll do anything to protect her. Being son of the lycan king, demon blood runs through his veins. But this has turned many against him—and her.
One is a demon tasked to protect her.
He knows she can never be his, but the heart wants what it wants. Even if that heart is pitch-black and hails from the Underworld.
A storm is coming.
Betrayal lies around every corner.
No one can be trusted, not when the fate of vampires and lycans hangs in the balance.
Zada is the key to bringing an end to this war, but what if that comes in the form of bloodshed and bullets?
And what if she can’t do it alone?

I was super intrigued when I read the blurb for the book. It held the promise of vampires, demons, fated mates and so much more. The cover is gorgeous. I couldn’t wait to be immersed in the underworld with Zada and her three monsters.
Zada is a hunter, a fierce badass warrior who roams the streets at night looking to rid the world of Lycan or to feed on unknowing humans that fall prey to her charm and beautiful looks. Zada’s people are deadlocked in a constant war that has up until this point stayed hidden in the darkness, but that is all about to change. Their very existence is at risk if their world is revealed it may all be over.
“Shadows kept me hidden in this dusty alleyway. Hidden from them. The humans.”
Zada’s father sits on the high council. She is completely shocked when he announces her upcoming nuptials to Corbin, a vampire prince she has never met but is instantly drawn to. Corbin has been waiting for Zada for as long as he can remember. He’s been in love with her since the beginning of time. He knows together they can rule their changing world. But he isn’t the only one after Zada’s heart. She has three equally gorgeous, intriguing monsters that crave her. Aryan is a hybrid and part lycan. The very people Zada has been taught to hate and so many have died at her hands. Now some prophecy says she may be the key to ending the war and Aryan may play a huge part in that? As if enough isn’t already happening here and throwing everything that Zada thought she knew completely out of whack…enter Ryder. The very demon tasked to keep her safe is also madly in love with her. Three hot monsters…each desires her and she desires them. The world they know is on the brink of a war so big that it may destroy everything. She may be the key to saving it all. What is a girl to do?
“I craved more, almost as much as blood.”
This book had so many things I usually love. Fated mates, vampires, three insanely hot, sex driven men. A kick ass heroine who can more than hold her own. Secrets, lies, betrayals and darkness around every corner. Some crazy hot sex scenes and non stop action. And Ryder? I loved Ryder. Usually all those amazing details combined work wonders in a book. But unfortunately most of this book was very confusing. Too much, too fast, too soon. I loved the whole concept and hoped to connect but sadly I didn’t. I loved Ryder. The sex scenes were hot but everything went from one extreme to the other. I didn’t feel any build up or flow. It made it hard to connect and really get into it. She’s always hated and killed lycan but one may be her fated mate and two seconds later ooops she fell on your dick. Just a lot of all over the place and it felt disconnected. I did like the whole idea of the story. I think I could have really gotten into the world the author built if there was more build up. This one did end on a cliffhanger.
“Maybe we both were monsters. Maybe we both were sick.”
