Games of Fate is a book that combines mythology with modern day romantic ideas that, in my opinion, don't work as a whole.
While the storyline had some interesting turns, the dialogue left me unimpressed. The characters personalities were easy enough to understand, certain points being revealed as the book progressed.
The book, however, didn't make a great deal of sense and I often wondered how the author imagined some of the scenes she attempted to describe. The 'creatures' that made up the characters in this book were romanticized beings from mythology, mutated by the authors imaginings, often not following their own storyline or character background.
I can only assume that this book is aimed at early teenagers or people that don't actually know what the beings are supposed to be. I wouldn't recommend this book to anyone after I was unable to overlook the many flaws in its plot, dialogue and characters.
Rysa Torres misses information. Loses concentration. Her attention problems randomize her life but she pushes forward anyway, doing the best she can--until monsters activate a part of her she didn't know she had. As visions of the future whip inside her head, Rysa realizes the truth: She's a Fate.
And she will set fire to the world.
All her options explode. Her family ripped away, what little control she had destroyed, Rysa is left with one choice: Will she die to stop the coming flames, or will she allow the man and the dragon she loves to die in her place?
