Ruins of Fate: The Omni Towers Series, Prequel Kindle Edition
One wrong decision, and the future will crumble…
Skye Levanthe traded everything she owned in order to secure a place for herself and her son, Veridian, in a scavenging camp.
But all contracts have an expiration date.
Desperate to obtain the resources they need to survive, Skye agreed to navigate the dangerous ruins of fallen cities to search for tradeable materials. When a strange storm forced Skye and her scavenging partner into forbidden territory controlled by The Omni Towers, a ruin collapsed, nearly taking their lives and destroying countless others.
Only one other person survived the ruin collapse: a mysterious young girl named Kayla.
Faced with the decision to save her son or abandon her new foster daughter to a terrible fate, Skye agreed to the only possible course of action—to go into exile and take on the Omni traders in their own den.
No one ever said survival would be easy.
And every choice has consequences.
The Omni Towers is an exciting post-apocalyptic fantasy series with romantic elements and shocking twists. Join Skye as she unearths the secrets of the past and discovers a hidden world no one thought was possible.

Oh wow, this was good. Not going into great details about the book because what isn’t in the blurb is something each reader needs to discover on their own. Kayla is amazing. The struggles she has endured. Actually, all of the characters and their lives, I can see so clearly becoming a reality. The struggles and choices she had to make were quite moving. I love the connection between her and Leo. Not quite romance, but definitely something deeper.
Ms. Waters has painted a very good picture of possible things to come. If I had one thing I would have wanted more of it would have been the how. How did the world get to this place? What caused the world to deteriorate? So many questions I now have. Hoping the further I get into the Omni towers series I’ll find the answers I am searching for. This is definitely a series worth reading!
I received this book from the BookSirens. I was not compensated for the book other than the entertainment it provided. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
The very harshness of their lives makes the characters have to learn to be strong and able to fight to hang on to what is theirs, but the author manages to create human warmth and softness even in the hardest of the badasses in the books.
The people living in the wasteland are not the only survivors, however, with the mysterious Omni Towers looming large in the background of the story. Omni traders buy the artefacts the so-called ruin rats scavenge, and there is immediately a tension between the two groups, with the Omnis looking for unfair advantage and withholding much-needed supplies.
This book is a great example of a "when the going gets tough, the tough get going" story, with a lot of action to move the story on at a fast pace. The reader is immediately drawn into the world and the character stories, with hints of many mysteries ready to be uncovered. As a prequel to main series, Ruins of Fate is a fantastic first dip into a world where life is hard, but human hope and ingenuity win out.
…there are probably others.
Characters of Colour?
Not so much. There’s one secondary character who is kinda brown, but it’s a pretty glaringly white cast.
Given it’s supposed to be at LEAST 150 years since the UV levels spiked, & our snapshot doesn’t include underground habitations, it’s a bit farfetched to assume people would still be mostly white by that point.
None! Sure, relationships are discouraged, but especially to avoid pregnancy I’d have anticipated a LOT more GLITTFAB interactions, if not out & out Queer folx.
This is part of what hit me so hard.
Medical resources are slim. Survival is inherently Ableist in this environment, & it’s built into the trading system. If you cannot get in & around to scavenge, you don’t earn the resources to trade for essential supplies.
Even a temporary disability can see you losing your place, taking you from barely scraping by to dying slowly.
As a Disabled person, these kinds of inherently, viciously Ableist societal structures hurt like hell. When paired with the rapidly closing window before we’re facing irreversible climate collapse - part of which includes more pandemics - it’s enough to really make me worry about a future.
Worth my time?
Oh, absolutely. Despite the fear, & the pain, this is a story fundamentally about hope, humanity, & knowing which lines you will not cross. It took me about 2 hours, all told. A satisfying quick read.
This book is the prequel to a series. As such, it’s got a lot of re-read potential… if the rest of the series lives up to the epic that this book is lining up.
By itself? Wooof. I don’t think I would want to put myself through that again.
To fans of post-apocalyptic, dystopian adventures/romances.
I received this book in exchange for my honest views - thanks, BookSiren!
