Games of Fate Book Review

Rysa Torres misses information. Loses concentration. Her attention problems randomize her life but she pushes forward anyway, doing the best she can—until monsters activate a part of her she didn’t know she had.

As visions of the future whip inside her head, Rysa realizes the truth: She’s a Fate.

And she will set fire to the world.

All her options explode. Her family ripped away, what little control she had destroyed, Rysa is left with one choice: Will she die to stop the coming flames, or will she allow the man and the dragon she loves to die in her place?

My Review

Rysa Torres is your average college student, or at least she thinks she is. She suffers from ADD and requires tutoring from her best friend Gavin to get by. Little did she know, her entire world is about to change forever. She is destined to become a Fate, and it has been activated, how will she learn to control it when she can't even focus on a simple task. Will Ladon, his Dragon companion, Marcus and Harold be able to help her control the chaos in her head? Will Ladon be successful at keeping her safe from the Burners?


I love, love, love dragon stories and this one is awesome!  This book was nonstop action from the very beginning. The chemistry between Rysa and Ladon is incredibly intense. Rysa is a lovable main character, even when she had no idea what was going on, she told Gavin to run and she then took on the Burners on her own, not knowing if someone would come to her aid. This is a fantastic first book in the series, and I can't wait to read the next one.



 About the Author
As a child, Kris took down a pack of hungry wolves with only a hardcover copy of "The Dragonriders of Pern" and a sharpened toothbrush. That fateful day set her on a path traversing many storytelling worlds--dabbles in film and comic books, time as a talent agent and a textbook photo coordinator, and a foray into nonfiction. After co-authoring "Mind Shapes: Understanding the Differences in Thinking and Communication", Kris returned to academia. But she craved narrative and a richly-textured world of Fates, Shifters, and Dragons--and unexpected, true love. 

Kris lives in Minnesota with her husband, two daughters, Handsome Cat, and an entire menagerie of suburban wildlife bent on destroying her house. That battered-but-true copy of "Dragonriders"? She found it yesterday. It's time to pay a visit to the woodpeckers.
