Review: The Fate of Destiny (Fates #1) by Danielle Bourdon

Book Blurb

Up until three days before her eighteenth birthday, Farris Landry's life fit neatly into three categories: consuming, troublesome and downright tricky.

Consuming because of the unnatural passion (obsession) she had for writing 'stories'.

Troublesome for the mother who descended into the realm of the insane right before her eyes.

Tricky when she found herself on her own, forced to carve out an existence by the skin of her teeth.

Farris quickly discovers that consuming-troubling-tricky is nothing compared to the Chaos that ensues after a visit to her grandmother. Determined to go on with her life, Farris finds out the hard way that sometimes, Fate has other ideas. In the blink of an eye, her life gets turned upside down: a tornado rips through town, her loft catches fire, and an explosion decimates her workplace.

A stranger, Emerson Ferrera, inserts himself into the violence, becoming guardian and protector. Farris begins to suspect her grandmother's warning of impending death might be more serious than she thought.

Tragedy and betrayal follow, throwing Farris into a tailspin. Will she be able to trust the stranger she's become close to, or will his deception tear them apart?

Find out if Farris' writing obsession is just a unique gift or a clue to a talent with a more supernatural twist in The Fate of Destiny, book #1 in the Fates series.

Toot's Review by Stacy Sabala

Farris Landry lives on her own.  Her grandmother is in a nursing home and her mother is in a mental hospital.  All she really has is her best friend Beelah and Bee’s family.  Bee knows all about Farris’ family and her stories.  Unbeknownst to Farris, she is to be the next Fate of Destiny.  Devon, the new Fate of Chaos, doesn’t want that to happen.  She has called on a weaver of Chaos to ensure Farris never fulfills her destiny.  Emerson questions Devon but does what she asks.  He creates chaos that targets Farris.  However, something doesn’t feel right and he doesn’t want her to get hurt.  He decides to protect her and find out why Devon really wants her dead.
He enlists the help of his friend Theron as Devon sends a new weaver to finish what Emerson refused to do.  Protecting Farris proves to be a fulltime job as time is running out.  Devon has to make sure Farris dies before her birthday.  She throws everything at Farris.
Emerson is shocked when he learns the truth of who Farris really is and why Devon wants Farris gone.  He has to reveal his own secrets as Farris is continually targeted.
This book was interesting and full of crazy suspense.  Farris is caught in tornadoes, a rabid dog pack attacks the farm house and her truck gets possessed.  She has no idea what is happening or why she is being put through this.  The reader knows more than the main character and you feel for Farris.  He life is crazy already then add in her being chosen to be a fate.  This poor girl doesn’t know what to think.
Emerson is her knight in shining armor.  He knows about the chaos and who has targeted her but has no idea why.  He has to keep his secrets and protect Farris at the same time.

This story definitely keeps you on your toes.  The author throws a lot of action at you as the story unfolds.  Farris is caught up in all of this without a clue.  It is sad what she has to endure.  Her journey is just the beginning.  I want to see where the author takes it.  I give it a 4 out of 5.
