My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Why would a girl feel compelled to write stories about people she’s never met? (I don’t mean novelists!) From the time she learned to write, Farris can’t help but write. By the time she’s almost eighteen, she has stacks of papers piled on every conceivable surface of her tiny cramped apartment. Is she a tad crazy like her “committed” mother, or is there a very good reason that she can’t help by write?
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!
