However, all that 'couldn't-give-a-damn' attitude was hurled right out of his well-guarded window the day he had the misfortune of being killed... After being turned into a Vampire, Stefen finds more than his mere existence to be altered. Now a Fallen, a hybrid with his maker's famed Dragon blood coursing through his veins, Stefen must rediscover himself and his newly awakening powers. When he is sent on a mission back to Hell, the place of his death, he discovers much more than what he bargained for. A child was left behind as a result of the battle that forever changed him. A victim of the war between the realms. Another hybrid, like him. Compelled by reasons beyond his own understanding, Stefen strikes a deal to help the innocent child. As she grows into a beautiful young woman, the more intertwined their two lives become and the more perilous their unique paths grow. It's not long before an old oracle's words from years ago begin to ring true..."Fate holds the cards. Time reveals the hand."...

    I received an ebook of this novel from the author in exchange for an honest review. Thank you Stacy Von Haegert!I thought it'd be impossible to top the previous book, and that I would be sorely disappointed with this one, but I have learned a valuable lesson : do no underestimate Stacy Von Haegert. This story had me hooked from the very first chapter. I always had to reluctantly put it down. I didn't want to stop reading, but you know, I kind of need to get off the train, and well, work. Every time I put it down I was beyond looking forward to pick it back up. I had a soft spot for Stefen in the first book, and I was so happy when I found put this was "his" book. He is my favourite character in the series. Sexy as hell, fallen angel? Hell yes. I really liked how it wasn't a repeat of the previous book. Sometimes series feel like the first book is copied and sold as different instalments. This one's story line is so different from the first, and that makes me happy. It proves that the author thought about the plot. The author also perfectly set up the next book, which I cannot wait to het my hands on!Possible unpopular opinion, I like Katara. I mean yeah she's a *****, but she is a complex character, and that intrigues me.

    Can I say wow, fantastic story. Angeles, Vampires, Demons hybrids, lots of action, intrigue, misery, war, the old and true about battle versus good. I started the book and was immediately drawn into the story, and page after page, it drew me in further and further. That Earth became as my home, the fights the feeling in the book became mine.The characters were awesome. The younger brother of the King of Angels, Stefen Von Emmerich , spent his years avoiding his duties. Having been turned into a Vampire he found he existence had changed. He was now a Fallen, a hybrid with his maker's Dragon blood running through his veins. He now must find himself and come to understand the power that are awakening in him. Sent to Hell on a mission, the same place where he died. A child had been left behind after the battle that changed him forever. She is a hybrid like him. Striking a deal to protect the child, which is beyond his own understanding. As she grows into a beautiful woman their lives become even more entwined. It's not long before an old oracle's words from years ago begin to ring true..."Fate holds the cards. Time reveals the hand." A story well writen, love it and can't wait to read the next one, for that character is very intriguing .

    Soooo good! I mean, so good! I have a tendency to pick up a book by Von Haegert and just never put it down. I stayed up until the wee hours of the morning last year trying to read as much of the first book of this series (Forged of Fire) before I just passed out, so I’m not surprised at all that I slacked off at my job for about a full work day keeping my eyes glued to the pages of Forged by Fate. I mean… I just devoured this book. Forged by Fate picks up shortly after the events of book 1, but focuses on angel/vampire hybrid, Stefen. He’s been cast out of Heaven, now a Fallen, and is trying to figure out what this new life means for him. While on a mission for his brother in Hell, the course of Stefen’s future is forever altered as he crosses paths with another Fallen hybrid. And Stefen’s heart is never the same…Okay, that’s all I want to say without being too spoilery. I love how the main male characters of this series are written; Stefen is totally alpha, but in the best sense in that he is still caring and protective, and oozing sexiness. Merick is also able to hold her own with her intelligence and bravery shining through a beautiful exterior. Their relationship was years in the making, but once they do take the step together, wow… just wow… I want to warn that the entire series can be very dark at times, so readers need to be prepared to read some things that might make people uncomfortable. But clearly dark forces are at play – a good majority of the book takes place in Hell, so there’s a reader’s first giant clue. With that being said, the politics and intrigue between the realms is a lot to sink one’s mind into and riveting to read. There are still many things left unsettled between the realms, and it will be interesting to see how events play out in the next book. For me, anything written by Ms. Von Haegert goes into the must read/one-click purchase list!

    Here it is again, Author Stacy Von Haegert has written a book I couldn't put down. If you haven't read Forged of Fire yet go read that book NOW. This book, Forged by Fate, follows right after Forged of Fire in the Forged series. I'll try and keep this a spoiler free review so names are left out.This book opens on the first year anniversary of the death of one and birth of another, or I should say rebirth. Stacy uses this to bring us up to speed and to slide in some reminders that readers need to know but not enough to be annoyed by it. There isn't a lot of environmental descriptions since it isn't hard to pull up images of each realm that Stacy painted for us in book one.The main characters are set in as the plot quickly takes shape. Time moves swiftly as it focuses mostly on just a few people and the one character they will revolve around. As past secrets and stories are told the author keeps the reads connected to those we've become familiar with from the first book, and that further deepens the love we have for them, or hate depending on who it is.As fate starts to play a hand the pace of the story changes, and this my friends is worth the wait. This book takes longer to heat up but sure does get hot. This Is the first for me where I was torn on a favorite book boyfriend, but like the female character I got to love them both in different ways. (You'll get it once you read the book!)There is all the good stuff of love, family, and bonds. As well as the suspense, fear and war. Then twists and turns to shake things up. Questions are answered and new ones pop in. Of course the supernatural and all that we come to expect from the Forged series is beyond amazing. This book is well written, I loved it all. I can not wait to see what the author, Stacy Von Haegert has up her sleeve next!

    This book picks up right where the first one left off, we see Stephen transitioning to his new role. When his brother asks for help he will stop at nothing to accomplish the task. The plot twists will keep you turning the page, I so did not see the end coming. This was more than a love story, it was more about the characters finding themselves and coming into their own. The love of family as well as the fight against good and evil. Words can't express how well written and captivating the story was, it was like watching twilight onfold. I volunteered to read an ARC from the author and feel in love with the plot and characters. Merick is the heroine that every women wants to be

    You've all heard the question, which is more important genetics or environment? Which contributes more to the baby? Ms. Von Haegert answers that question and more in this second book of the Forged Series. She weaves a wonderful story of an angel/dragon hybrid raised in Hell by a scientist. But it's more than that. It's chock full of petty jealousy, heroic sacrifices, elemental benders and dragons. Beautifully magnificent dragons. Yes, Ash and Kielyn are there, along with their children, but they play a minor part. I'm talking Teakin LaGoryen here. While this IS Stefen and Merick's book, Teakin plays a huge part. I think I fell in love a little bit with him. He is most definitely a force to be reckoned with!Plot. Good and solid. The author is really getting a grasp on the world she's created and it shows. Her benders are more ... intense than in the first book, her characters well developed. I felt a range of emotions for the people in the book. Pity for Stefen at first, Lust for Teakin, Annoyance for Bastian. Eirik made me laugh, a lot. I was actually on the fence about Thaddeus. Not indifferent, but I liked him and disliked him at the same time. All strongly written characters able to pull feelings out of the reader. To me her strength lies in writing characters that you can't help but like. Even the bad guys, Zander and Katara I liked. I do wish there had been more Katara. She is such a bitch! There really isn't a lot world building in this one. Which is okay with me. You really do need to read the first book to get the whole picture of the Earth and Hell and the elemental bending. To just jump in and start with this book, while doable, would be an injustice. Like Stacy's other series, The White Rose Trilogy, she gets stronger with each book written. I've loved watching her find her feet as a writer and evolve. She spins a great tale. Looking forward to the next one.

    This is the second book in the series and is just as good if not better, just to be clear this is not a stand alone you need to have read forged in fire, the first book in the Forged series. This book concentrates on Stefen,who was an integral part of the first book, who at the end of the that book has his life saved by Ash the fired King and the husband of his best friend Kielyn. Merick is in hell, literally. She is the child of an Angel, captured during the last war and Ash's thought to be dead brother. She doesn't know any of this only that her supposed twin is like everyone and she just isn't.Stefen makes a bargain with Thaddeus supposed father of Merck , who is also grandfather to Zander the psychopathic King of hell.All of the characters from the previous book are her including Ash and Kielyn along with their Erick and Bastian Alaric Stefens brother and many more. This book was a joy to read. Clever, witty, dark , sexy and thrilling from the very first pages. Well written and enthralling I voluntarily read an advanced reader copy of this book

    Forged by Fate by Stacy Von Haegert... what a great read! I was enthralled with the depth of the characters, particularly the heroine Merick, and the complex weave of drama, action and romance that makes up this story. This one takes up where Forged of Fire left off and I was not disappointed, just the opposite for I could hardly put this book down when I received it. I was caught up in the budding romance between Stefen and Merick as they found their way together in a world they neither did not fight squarely into. The strangely poignant view in Hell society that was intriguing and so very different than fictional representation of Hell that I just had to keep reading to see what happened next. Add in the war between Heaven and Hell and the players involved combined together for a rousing story of love and hate, drama and action. If you love dragons, this story delivers particularly in the final fight scene. This book is something that cannot be missed for lovers of paranormal fiction and romance!

    Once again I was transported into a world unlike my own. Author Stacy Von Haegert did not disappoint as my mind became fully engaged in a world filled with supernaturals. I felt like Dorothy from the "Wizard of Oz" exclaiming, "Vampires and Demons and Dragons...Oh my!!" during each intriguing twist and turn.This is not the genre I usually read, but this series is one I happen to honestly enjoy. The characters are developed in such a way for me to root for Stefen and Merick as they both find themselves tangled in a web of lies, deceit, cunning and manipulations. Secondary characters also add some flavor making me laugh, roll my eyes and even cry. It saddens me that I have to wait for the next book, but until then I get to imagine my own self in their world while enjoying my time to the fullest. It was a wonderful read and worth my time.

    I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.Stacy Von Haegert’s Forged series is a paranormal romance centred on the dramatic lives of an elite group of alpha males. The Forged universe is comprised of earth as we know it, where paranormals and benders hide in plain sight, heaven, occupied by the angels, and hell, home of the vampires and ruled by Dante and his perverse offspring. Elemental benders, those who can control the elements, are seeking to reorganize and provide a formidable defence against the omnipresent threat of Dante and his minions. First, each elemental house requires a leader. Born into a line of fearsome dragons, Ash LaGoryen , a fire bender turned vampire, is reluctant to enter into paranormal politics. Preferring to remain under the radar, Ash has lived a rather solitary life on earth. But when a young, beautiful woman, fabled to be the chosen one, requires protection and mentorship, Ash is plunged headlong into a battle for supremacy. This was my first encounter with Stacy Von Haegert and I’m undeniably hooked. I read both books is short order and am completely devastated I will have to wait a year for book three. The Forged world is imaginative and complex. Von Haegert’s characters are more complicated than what is common to the genre. Her characters are often flawed; at times neither good nor bad. The action and drama is riveting. One of the best features of these books is definitely the romance. These books are teeming with sexual energy and are absolute page-turners. I had a difficult time putting either book down. Forged is reminiscent of JR Ward’s Black Dagger Brotherhood series. Both series are, at times, over-serious, however, definitely entertaining. This series is undoubtedly one to watch. Book one chronicles the story of Ash, while book two is the angel Stefen’s story. Reviewed for ismellsheep.com

    This is an action packed paranormal/fantasy book , featuring Dragons Vampires and so much more. This is also book 2 in the series. At first it took me a while to get into the storyline but when I did there was no putting the book down. Every page was action packed and interesting, keeping my attention. The author writes in such a way that it's easy to read, therefore making it enjoyable rather then hard work; which can be the case in some paranormal / fantasy stories. The book focuses on Merik, a young Angel who was born to be an experiment, daughter of a Angel and Dragon. We follow her from birth until such an age where she has to make huge decisions in her life, all whilst trying to herself safe. And learning who to trust and who not to. Essentially the story focuses on war between heaven and hell, and it's many creations. Characters from book one are in the story too, so we continue to read about them and their involvement with Merik, whilst meeting many more. I don't want to give too much of the storyline away, which wouldn't be difficult if I were to explain some of the characters but there isn't a dull moment throughout this book. Of course there are some loveable characters, and some not so loveable. A very enjoyable read and one not to be missed. I enjoyed everything about this book. The way the storyline was so cleverly put together and how the characters were equally important, whether good or bad.

    I received this book as an ARC in return for an honest review. This book centres around Stefan who we met in book one. His story is completely different leading you on a different path. Its years later, Kielyn and Ash have twin boys almost full grown, Teakin is still in Hell. Dante is dead, a new King in Hell. Zander, ruling with his sister Katara. They have a son, Xavier. Our story starts with Stefan losing his lands. A request from his brother to find a Fallen Angel, lost during the battle years earlier. To rescue dead or alive, it mattered not. Anessa, an Angel, her torn and battered body hanging from a tree. Stefan flashed in and out, examination to find she gave birth, there is a child of an Angel in Hell. This is the foundation of the story. A baby watched from birth to full grown and the men who will shape her life. I found this story more compelling, it drew me deeper into their world as though watching from above. I would recommend reading the first book first, then this one. I thoroughly enjoyed it. The twists and turns, love, hate, laughter and tears. This book has it all. Highly recommended, loved it from start to end. A must read A***************

    Great 2nd bookI loved book 1, Forged of Fire, so when I saw book 2 was looming in the horizon I didn't hesitate to pre-order-which I never do. Stefen and Mericks story was just as good as Ash and Keilyns story. I enjoyed seeing characters from book 1 and trying to figure out what exactly the Diabolis plan was. They're shifty and each one was out to benefit them self so I wasn't really sure what the bigger picture was going to be. Needless to say I was surprised, but not at the same time. I enjoyed Forged by Fate and easily give it a solid 5 stars, I eagerly await the next book.

    As with the first book in this series Forged in Fire we are introduced to some wonderfully crafted characters. The raw emotion of the characters draws the reader in and keeps them hooked. The raw emotions of a parent’s love, and what one would do for the sake their child is depicted wonderfully. I look forward to the introduction of the next set of characters that Stacy Von Haegert will build within her next book of this series.

    loved this book. Stefan is an angel that is killed in hell, turned into a vampire and is now considered a fallen. At the request of his brother, he returns to hell to find out what happened to his fiancé. He finds out she was killed but had a baby girl. He goes back to watch over her and then their story begins.

    Forged by fateThis is book 2 in what I believe will be a trilogy (I could be wrong, it could be more) it's takes straight from where book 1 left us and this book packs a punch. Again I feel there are parts that just wasn't needed and they were maybe ‘fillers’ of sorts. Again the mythical being are well planned and thought out and we have the introduction of yet more of these beings which helped to keep the story fresh and alive. The twists again come thick and fast and are really good. We are introduced to new characters in the book and they are very welcome additions along with the characters we grew to love in book 1. The writing is good but I found one particular story twist was used twice which was a little disappointing but I'm sure the author had her reasons to do so and I'm hoping that will be revealed in book 3 which isn't going to be here until early 2018.All in it's a very enjoyable read especially for those that love to read about other beings4 stars from me

    In this second book of the series, we find out some truths that have been well hidden in the first book. We find out things that we thought were true were lies. We meet some new people in Thaddeus, Merick, Eirik, and his twin brother. Who are these new people? How do they relate to one another if at all? What do we find out about Zander? Who and what does he want? Why? What does he threaten to do and why if someone does not comply? This book was full of twists, turns, and some serious surprises as I read it. I now cannot wait for Thaddeus' book. Oh my, oh my, oh my is all I have to say. This is a must read! RECEIVED THIS BOOK AS A GIFT FOR A FAIR/HONEST REVIEW and REVIEWER FOR Bloggin' With M. Brennan.

    an amazing sequel to the story! I adore how the touching reveal to Merrick of who her actual father was, watching her learn how to find out who she wishes to be is a breathtaking journey on learning to trust and love. It made me so happy to have Ash reunited with his brother he thought dead for so long, and the way they get along so well in the quest for vengeance to keep their family safe is a wonderful read. altogether I would say this is an enjoyable book which has surpassed expectations of the first, with a fluent flow to the words.
