Bound by Fate

By Renee Scattergood

Book Review

Auren finds herself finally on her own after escaping capture in the Shadow Stalkers homeland. She leaves behind her foster father/mentor Kado, leaving herself in emotional turmoil wondering what has become of him. However, Auren isn’t out of danger just yet.

She has found out from an old friend from high school that her best friend Jade has been captured. On a rescue mission Auren will find herself in the clutches of those that she sought to escape capture.  Trying to keep her sanity and from being brainwashed against her own people she tries to find a way to save her friend, father and the Serpent Isles.

The unfathomable happens when her mother’s prophecy unfolds before her eyes. Bound by Fate is by far the beginning of the dark climax that will propel Auren’s series forward. Her allies far away and a foe that could turn into so much more by a connection the Shadow Stalker’s designed. Auren will be in the fight for her life that will keep you all coming back for more.

If you are a fan of suspense, adventure and a bit of torture this is defiantly a fantasy book you want to get your hands on. Bound by Fate is the beginning of part two but even if you start now you will find yourself wanting to head back to the beginning for all the juicy details that Mrs. Scattergood puts into all her episodes.

Always, leaving me speechless and wanting more this novella is by far my favorite in this series to date. I am defiantly hands down giving Mrs. Scattergood FIVE stars for this episode and a big high five for a job well done.
