The book focuses more on action and light character development than anything else. It's all about the characters, and the things that happen to them. Everyone knows that characters are the most important part of the story, but Fate's Hand spends so little time world building that it makes the entire experience feel empty. Don't expect to get any kind of explanation as to how magic works or any details about the demons that are so prominent in the story, and definitely don't expect the world of Fate's Hand to be mentioned in much detail. The story presents things as if it were a film, with only 90 minutes to provide you with entertainment. This has two effects; the aforementioned lack of world building is the negative effect, but on the bright side the lack of expository dialogue means that more time is spent moving the plot forward. You'll find it hard to put the book down because things just keep happening. There is very little downtime, since the story constantly switches perspectives between a few main characters. Fate's Hand is not a surprising novel, if you are even remotely genre-savvy you'll see the small twists coming from a mile away. Many times I was able to accurately predict what was going to happen one or two chapters ahead.
Fate's Hand won't blow your mind away, but if you don't mind the lack of world building (or if you like that it lacks that) and can enjoy it's action-oriented plot, you'll find a great fantasy page-turner that will provide some solid entertainment.
Review: From the point of opening the book (or in my case selecting it on my Kindle), I wasn't able to put it down. The story line was well thought out and the characters were well developed. The world creation was good though I wish there was more of a emphasis on the world, but the storyline made up for it. I'd recommend this to any fantasy fans.

"I thought it was superb, and I couldn't stop reading once I picked it up. And the story kept me from making an accurate guess of the end. It is amazing! The first book was soooo good and damn, it just came out! The others aren't even close to being done."
I just wanted to share the enthusiasm of my son on this book. If you're into fantasy genre' books, you'd probably enjoy this story.
