"Radcliffe's take on Fates, history, the supernatural are all unique. Iloved the mix of the three races, the constant worry about Rysa and hersurvival. And, of course, what girl hasn't wanted her very own Dragon?Especially this Dragon.." ★★★★★ Award-winning author Patti Larsen
"This is a fast paced book that doesn't skimp on character development." ★★★★★ J. Kimmel-Freeman
Flux of Skin:
I can't say it enough. Kris Radcliffe has become a new favouriteauthor of mine with this series. Once again she tells an amazing storyof fates, shifters, enthrallers, and dragons that you just can not putdown. I was sucked right in within the first chapters and sped readuntil the very last pages. ★★★★★ -- Kristine at The Schwartz Reviews
Fifth of Blood:
What a brilliant addition to this series. Radcliffe mixes fast actionwith intricate detail to create a story that you won't soon forget. Itfollows directly from the previous novel in the series and ramps up theaction to a much higher level. The story is vivid and larger than life,drawing you in. I could barely put his novel down! ★★★★★ -- Pure Jonel Book Reviews
From the Author
A: I wrote GAMES OF FATE for my daughter, a real young woman with real ADHD. The FFSD universe may be Urban Fantasy/ Science Fiction, but Rysa's anxiety, her hyperactivity, and her fractured and flitting way of seeing the world are all true to life -- and not attributes of someone you'd expect to save the world.
A girl with ADHD can be a hero, too. She may not start out plucky, and may have farther to go in her journey, but don't discount the passion and creativity of someone with ADHD. She can save the world, and in the FFSD universe, she does.
Q: How did you decide to include American Sign Language in the Fate - Fire - Shifter - Dragon universe?
A: I have a limited understanding of ASL; a family member who is not deaf but is nonverbal uses ASL. It was because of this family member that I realized the nonverbal dragons could also use ASL as a way to communicate.
Q: Which Fate - Fire - Shifter - Dragon titles are FREE when I subscribe to Kris Austen Radcliffe's newsletter?
A: GAMES OF FATE (book 1), CONPULSIO (an FFSD novella), and BONDS (book 4.1). Paste the following URL into your browser: tinyurl.com/krisaustenradcliffe
Q: How many books are in the Fate - Fire - Shifter - Dragon series, and what is their order?
A: GAMES OF FATE, FLUX OF SKIN and FIFTH OF BLOOD (books 1-3) make up ACTIVATION: THE COMPLETE FIRST TRILOGY. These three novels are tightly tied together and each picks up on the heels of the previous book. It's best to read them in order.
Together, the novellas BONDS, BROKEN and SILENT make up book 4. This miniseries introduces Daisy Pavlovich and Gavin Bower (Rysa's friend who appears briefly at the beginning of GAMES OF FATE) into the FFSD universe.
ALL BUT HUMAN and MEN AND BEASTS (books 4 and 5) make up the REDEMPTION DUOLOGY, and like the novels of ACTIVATION, are tightly tied together; and again, it's best to read them in order.
Readers may start with either Rysa's story (GAMES OF FATE) or Daisy's story (BONDS). It is best, though, to be caught up with both heroines before starting book 5, ALL BUT HUMAN, where Rysa's and Daisy's paths converge.
Also part of the FFSD series: CONPULSIO (a Roman Era novella), plus the short stories "Pop Rocks", "Cinder to Dust", and "Dmitri and the Mad Monk".
The series, in order:
(1) Games of Fate
(2) Flux of Skin
(3) Fifth of Blood
(plus Conpulsio, Pop Rocks, and Cinder to Dust)
(5) All But Human
(6) Men and Beasts
(7) The Burning World (coming soon)
(2)Bonds Broken & Silent
(3)Redemption (coming soon)
Q:What genre is the Fate - Fire - Shifter - Dragon series?
A: FFSD is a New Adult Urban Fantasy Romance story within a Science Fiction universe. Dragons, Fates, Shifters, ghouls called Burners, immortal warriors, Roman emperors--they're all here, along with a smattering of nanobots and, well, new tech.
