Blurb (from Goodreads):

Fate Floyd survived and escaped the deadly fairytale world of the Book of Fables, but at a terrible cost. The boy of her dreams, Finn McKeen, remains a prisoner of the cursed book. To find her way back to him, she must travel to a new world, where she’ll confront the mysterious Keep and the truth of her heritage.

With her heart sworn to saving Finn, and an unbreakable blood oath to guard the Keep, Fate must dig deep for the strength to protect those she loves. Unimaginable creatures of myth and legend threaten to destroy the Keep, while a slumbering evil awakens within the bowels of the arcane storehouse of magical objects. Fate’s only chance for salvation lies in a series of desperate quests and battles, any one of which may mark the end of everything she holds dear.


This book was equally fun to read as book 1. Although this book could have been a little short but there was not a single dull moment and the anticipation of what’s going to happen next made this an exciting read!

*Spoilerish.*

Fate and Finn get separated when Finn gets cursed and is bound to the oak and Fate returns to the real world. But she is determined to save Finn but the only way back is through is by going through the Keep and one has to be the guardian to pass by first. Desperate to get back, Fate accepts the hard choice, but this time she is not the only one who tumbles into the world of fairytales. When more danger crosses her path, will be able to reach Finn in time?

The plot of this book was unpredictable which I really liked. This book picks up right where it was left off. Fate’s gets back from the book of Fables but Finn is still stuck there, on top of that her whole book signing after party moves to the bookstore which puts her in a compromising position. With the help of Gerdie, she is finally able to return to the fables but quite a few of her friends tumbles along with her. It was actually quite fun and irritating at the same time seeing how her friends reacted. I was especially angry towards Jessie, Fate’s bff and I was very much glad when they resolved the issue between them.

The dangers got more amplified in this book, especially the Gorgons. They were nightmarish. But I was soooo glad to have Sithias back!! I love that snake so freaking much! The action sequences were done well and I really enjoyed the backstory of the Keep. Though I felt that the book stretched a bit too much. Anyway, finally, the real villains of the Keep were also introduced. Although we just got a glimpse of them in this book, I have a feeling shit’s about to hit the fan in the next one which I’m really excited to read about. And I was soooo happy when Fate and Finn finally got reunited. It’s not going to be an easy journey for them but at least they are in it for together.

Overall, Fate’s Keep was an enjoyable read. I enjoyed both the plot and the characters. The writing was smooth and easy to read and it was fast-paced throughout the book. I’m definitely looking forward to seeing what happens next in this series.
