Until now, he's existed only in her dreams -
but fate is about to bring them together. I shove through the crowd, knocking into girls and bouncing off boys, until one in particular catches me, steadies me.
I feel so secure, so at home in his arms. 

I melt against his chest-lift my gaze to meet his. Gasping when I stare into a pair of icy blue eyes banded by brilliant flecks of gold that shine like kaleidoscopes, reflecting my image thousands of times.
The boy from my dream. 

The one who died in my arms. Strange things are happening to Daire Santos. Crows mock her, glowing people stalk her, time stops without warning, and a beautiful boy with unearthly blue eyes haunts all her dreams. Fearing for her daughter’s sanity, Daire’s mother sends her to live with the grandmother she’s never met. A woman who recognizes the visions for what they truly are—the call to her destiny as a Soul Seeker—one who can navigate the worlds between the living and dead.
There on the dusty plains of Enchantment, New Mexico, Daire sets out to harness her mystical powers. But it’s when she meets Dace, the boy from her dreams, that her whole world is shaken to its core. Now Daire is forced to discover if Dace is the one guy she's meant to be with...or if he’s allied with the enemy she's destined to destroy.

Another great series by Alyson Noel. I loved The Immortals series which I read few years earlier. When I heard about Soul Seekers, I was excited since I love the author. The storyline was unlike any of other books that I have read, and different from the other series that she wrote. I had a feeling that I was going to love it from moment I read the summary. Fated seemed to have more adventure, suspense then romance and it kept me engaged, it had me wondering what was going to happen next. Once I got to last page, I was craving to pick up next book in the series. I can’t wait to see how it turns out, where Daire’s journey will lead her next. If she will succeed. 

Daire, Paloma, Jennika : All of those relationships between them were different. I noticed how much it changed as the book progressed. For example, in the beginning of novel, Daire wanted nothing but to get out from there, to get away from her grandmother. By the end, the two of them had a special bond and Daire wanted to stay. She saved her soul and if that’s not love, what is? I got a feeling that their bond will become even stronger. It felt bit weird having Daire call her mother by her name, but most of time, the two of them seemed to be more like friends, well till she got send to her grandmothers. After that, it seemed like their relationship became strained. Despite me not liking how Jennika handle some situations, I know she did it because she loves me. I am curious to see if their relationship will change. 

Daire & Dace: Loved how their names matched, sort of. Of course it all made sense towards the end when Paloma said that they were Fated. I’m not quite convinced that she loves him, at least not yet. Way they kept crossing each other paths, even before they met, did look like one way or another that they would end up together. I could tell that he cared about her too, by way he always seemed to come to her rescue, at most unexpected time. I feel like with Dace at her side, knowing what she is, it will be easier to deal with everything. I know that their journey is far from over. I am rooting for them to stay together, to make it till the end. 

There were few slow parts, that got me lose interest for bit. Otherwise it was a great read. If you love Fantasy and time travel, which in way this is, along with romance, pick it up today. You will be craving for more by the end.
