Rysa Torres stumbles through life an overwhelmed young woman fighting against her Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. She can't get a handle on the world, no matter how she tries. When monsters activate a part of her she didn't know she had, Rysa becomes the Fate at the center of an epic battle against a terrifying future--and a world consumed by fire.
With the threat of a burning future distorting Rysa's Fate abilities, she sees only two options: End her own life, or watch Ladon, the only man to see beyond her attention issues and love her for who she is, die. Will they accept the only future they see, or will they find the strength to break the bonds of fate?
Games of Fate by Kris Austen Radcliffe
Enough to make your head spin, hang on for the paranormal ride of your life as one young woman stumbles through the maze that is her life, only to discover the life she knows is only the tip of the iceberg of the life she is destined to lead. Rysa has struggled with the chaos of Attention Deficit Disorder all of her life. Missing just one pill sends her into a frenzied tailspin and that is when it happened. Rysa’s world is about to go beyond the Twilight Zone and straight into the deadly and dangerous zone as she discovers the truth of who and what she is. Fate is NOT playing with her because she IS Fate, or at least one of them and there are those who would do anything to see her dead.
GAMES OF FATE by Kris Austen Radcliffe is a tale of Science Fiction meets Urban Fantasy and the clash is explosive, bringing the world of dragons, immortal warriors, family and love together in a rapid-fire tale. As an inexperienced Fate, Rysa’s newfound powers could destroy the future of the world, turning it into a raging inferno of pain and death.
Ladon is an immortal warrior, and along with his companion, Dragon must decide if Rysa is the innocent and clueless woman she says or if she is the lethal weapon she was intended to be. Can he use her to his advantage or will he find that Fate has brought her to him to warm his frozen heart and help him find forgiveness?
Extremely detailed, filled with a cast of characters that pass through the pages at breakneck speed, this tale demands its readers’ full attention. Sometimes confusing, and a bit choppy, there is a huge potential here to be a completely riveting tale that will mesmerize readers from start to finish. Rysa is clearly a heroine in over her head until she grows into who and what she has become. Dragon’s loyalty and Ladon’s ability to see beyond her issues is at once, heartwarming and risky on his part. But everyone needs someone to believe in them, especially when they are not ready to believe in themselves.
Looking for a read that demands your full attention to believe in? This could be it.
