Torrents of Fate
I enjoyed this story and the vivid world the author created. The scene descriptions were incredibly detailed. The characters were dynamic. Not only did the MC (Evie) undergo a dramatic transformation but several other characters evolved by the end of this book as well. I would recommend to any reader that is interested in a good fantasy thriller. The reader is left in suspense, at times it seems the obstacles the MC faces will never end. Throughout Evie’s quest I found myself as equally frustrated as she was. The author did a good job of making the reader feel a connection with the characters.
Read the story now
There were some problems in the beginning of the story. The preface is a bit wordy and reveals too much of the plot. A rework of the preface will help capture readers. The first few chapters were also a bit overwhelming with information. It felt like a lot of information was being thrown at the audience rather then gradually and naturally introducing the information throughout the book. I think the overwhelming amount of information might deter some readers from continuing. Some of the information presented was also confusing and was not clarified well in the novel. I found answers in the comments from the author. If this were a printed book without the option of communicating with the author I might not have understood fully. Once I was able to discern what was happing the rest of the book was well read, apart from some grammatical errors.
I thoroughly enjoyed the characters, the world created by the author, and the plot. I will definitely be reading the second book in the series. I hope this review helps the author to better her story. I applaud her on her work thus far.
