Book Description

Fable™ Heroes, available May 2, 2012, on Xbox Live Arcade, gathers a range of heroes and villains from across the epic videogame saga—and the Fable™ companion eBook series delves even deeper into their greatest triumphs, darkest secrets, and never-before-seen origins. In the third eBook short story, the Blind Seeress Theresa encounters a destiny she can’t abide. Can she change the future without changing everything?
 
In a small village, an innocent girl is tormented by disturbing hallucinations and violent headaches. Like Theresa, the girl is a seer, but one whose powers will lead to madness and death. Theresa has seen the girl’s fate in a shocking vision. Refusing to accept what appears to be certain, Theresa resolves to find the mythical cure for second sight. But she needs help. Unfortunately, in a town where heroes are few and far between, Theresa is left with Elijah Stane, a drunken wretch up for one last great adventure. On a journey rife with peril, Fable’s™ most powerful seer discovers that altering fate is no easy task. And the choices Theresa must make will haunt her . . . perhaps to the grave.

Theresa has always been a favorite character of mine from the original Fable game. After having read, and enjoyed, Peter David's short story about Jack of Blades I was eagerly awaiting this one's release. It did not disappoint.

Theresa has been drawn to a town with a small girl suffering from a surprising ailment - she is also a seer. However Theresa sees the sad fate that the girl will not survive her growing powers much longer. There is a slim possibility of finding a cure, but the journey isn't likely to be pleasant, and certainly won't be easy.

From vivid descriptions that give great connection to how the blind Theresa observes the world so well to the benefits and drawbacks to pieces of her gift, Peter David really brings the character to life over the course of this adventure. The story itself is nicely layered, particularly for the length, and engaging throughout, in no small part due to Theresa's default bodyguard Elijah Stane and his own intriguing story arc.

A great revisit to the world of Albion that adds some nice depth to an established character and examines some of the limits and strengths of "seeing" to great effect.

Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great for Theresa fans December 1, 2014

I love the Fable games, as well as RPG games with adaptable story lines. I, like many, am fascinated by the Theresa character. There are a lot of "you win some, you lose some" aspects in her story line, both in the games and in this book that help make her the well rounded character she is. She makes you feel both safe and uncomfortable that she's there. Like she's the parent/grandparent who's always there, but still makes you learn your own lessons and gives very little hints.

I gave it 4 stars because though I think it's a good story, I wasn't fascinated by it either. I was interested and entertained. Not much more can be asked of such a short story.

I hoped to learn about my favourite fable character as much mystery surrounds her but sadly I get a story more about an old hero...

It was a good game, and hearing some more of the stories of the people in it was fascinating! I would recommend Peter David to anyone, and this is another great example of why.
