Shape-changer Acila is forced to leave her home when it is captured by a Lord Ranulf. She and her dreamy, impractical brother, Briam, eventually come to the city of Diadem. In a kingdom of women-rulers, Briam is chosen as Year-king-- one scheduled to be sacrificed at the end of the summer.
Acila's certainly not going to stand for it! But how to rescue him? With the help of Druscilla, the reluctant heir to the crown of Diadem, her companion, Wolf (incidentally a wolf) and her own unique powers, Acila knows she must save Briam.
The characters are done very well. There are no villains in Changing Fate. The Queen sacrifices Year-kings merely to keep her people happy; Lord Ranulf...well, he's not at all a cold-hearted invader. I particularly liked the handling of Druscilla, a competent and intelligent woman whom everyone underestimates at first, including Acila. If you're at all into fantasy, Changing Fate is that rare and obscure book that is a must.
That said, it's been a favorite since I first got a copy over ten years ago.
Acila has always been her (rather simpleminded) brother's keeper. Lord Ranulf, who has come to take over her home, recognizes her as a fellow shapechanger and, as could be expected, wants to marry her for her talent. Through cleverness and magic, Acila and her brother escape into the unknown world where, of course, her brother ends up as the Year King of a city where he will be sacrificed at the end of the year.
The characters were well written and even the ones you rather disliked were well rounded enough to be likable, after all. With a fast paced plot and smart heroine, it was almost like one of those old fairy tales where the clever and steadfast heroine saves the day (rather then the hero.)

This soaring fantasy kept me page-turning til the end. Every vignette was drawn by an artist.
I recommend it to anyone who's impatient to read what comes next.
