One wrong decision, and the future will crumble…
Skye Levanthe traded everything she owned in order to secure a place for herself and her son, Veridian, in a scavenging camp.
But all contracts have an expiration date.
Desperate to obtain the resources they need to survive, Skye agreed to navigate the dangerous ruins of fallen cities to search for tradeable materials. When a strange storm forced Skye and her scavenging partner into forbidden territory controlled by The Omni Towers, a ruin collapsed, nearly taking their lives and destroying countless others.
Only one other person survived the ruin collapse: a mysterious young girl named Kayla.
Faced with the decision to save her son or abandon her new foster daughter to a terrible fate, Skye agreed to the only possible course of action—to go into exile and take on the Omni traders in their own den.
No one ever said survival would be easy.
And every choice has consequences.
Ruins of Fate by Jamie A. Waters
I loved the Omni Towers series, so it was no surprise that I devoured the prequel of how it all began.
This is the story of Skye, a single mother, trying to make a life for herself and her son outside the towers. When a young girl named Kayla is discovered in a collapsed ruin, Skye must make some very difficult decisions…to give up the girl to her own fate or move on from the life she has worked so hard to build for her and her son. Tensions were already high in the camp where they live so adding another mouth to feed without the ability to work for the group is never going to be accepted. But no child would ever survive on their own.
This the events that lead up to Kayla’s story and reminded just why I enjoyed reading Jamie A. Waters’ storytelling so much. I somehow missed the release of the past few books and now will be adding them to my soon to be reading shelf.
I received this copy of Ruins of Fate from Jamie A. Waters. This is my honest and voluntary review.
