I really try to stay away from Tweeny books, a lot of times they are just too annoying and cookie cutter with icing for me, but like I said above, I loved the other series, so I decided to jump in here, and now I am happy I did! I can see how the balance of the Fates would affect the world and that they would want to retire every couple thousand years or so. I love the mythology and mysticism behind it all, but I would have liked to learn more about the mother and if Farris is truly her child or was she put into her care? There are still so many unanswered questions, I hope the next books have some of them. The ending was so abrupt, I almost felt like I hit a wall! I know why author's do it, but sometimes, it's ok to let us down a little slower, I really didn't expect to "flip" my page(iPad) and bonk right into The End!! SMACK! But it worked, I am now the proud owner of the 2nd book!
I gave it 4 stars because of the outstanding questions about her family that could have been answered relatively easily, unless there is something I have yet to learn. If that is the case then add back a half star. The other half is that Bonk of an ending. Seriously, I like a tiny bit of resolution at the end of my books, cliffhangers are great, but when you leave us without a parachute, it really can hurt. Especially if you can't get to the next book right away!
I love how the underground world explains situations within her world that would not normally make sense. The plot is original and the characters are very well developed. The only thing I did not like about the story was that it ends leaving you in mid air leaving you to want more. I then realize that this is the first in a series and when I did I quickly downloaded the other books in this series but I wanted to see how Fate stories align...LOL. Get it..align. I thought that quib was clever. It is more than worth the read and be prepared because if you like it you will read the other books in the series guaranteeed.
Then there's the prophesy that her senile grandmother remembers two days before Farris' 18th birthday, the mysterious and hunky guy that whirls into town right as a H*ll breaks loose. And... so much more. I don't want to give anything away.
I enjoyed The Fate of Destiny, and thought that the plot was cleverly unique and the characters quirky, complex and interesting. The writing was well done. The pacing of the story was good, not moving too fast nor bogging down from detail. Bourdon seems very skilled at crafting a balanced, inventive novel and I can't wait to see where the next book in the series takes me!
