Review: Fateful by Claudia Gray @claudiagray
Publication: September 2011
The RMS Titanic is the most luxurious ship in the world, but all Tess Davies wants to do is escape the overbearing family she works for. Traveling as a maid for the Lisles, Tess is trapped amid painful memories and twisted family secrets. Once their ship reaches its destination, Tess plans to strike out on her own. Her single-minded focus shatters when she meets Alec, a handsome and mysterious upper class passenger who captivates her instantly. But Alec has secrets of his own. As she uncovers what he has been concealing, Tess quickly becomes entangled in the mystery surrounding Aleca's fate. Soon Tess will learn that the danger they face is no ordinary enemy: that werewolves exist, and are stalking him - and now her, too. Her growing love for Alec will put Tess in mortal peril, and fate will do the same before their journey on the Titanic is over.

Claudia Gray is the pseudonym of New York-based writer Amy Vincent. She has worked as a lawyer, a journalist, a disc jockey, and an extremely poor waitress. Her lifelong interests in old houses, classic movies, vintage style, and history all play a part in her writing.
Claudia Gray's newest venture into the realm of mysticism ticks all the boxes. If you loved Twilight, you will love Fateful. All the vital ingredients have been included: one damsel in distress (who throws a good punch, or two, when necessary), one evil mistress, one upper class hunk of spunk (who unfortunately turns into a werewolf at the most inconvenient times), lots of romance, tragedy & drama. All this amidst the majestic setting of the RMS Titanic. Who will survive the battle between good and evil? And will Claudia's story of the Titanic meet the same fate as the one we've come to know so well from the history books. I'll let you find that out!
