Consuming because of the unnatural passion (obsession) she had for writing 'stories'. Troublesome for the mother who descended into the realm of the insane right before her eyes. Tricky when she found herself on her own, forced to carve out an existence by the skin of her teeth. Farris quickly discovers that consuming-troubling-tricky is nothing compared to the Chaos that ensues after a visit to her grandmother. Determined to go on with her life, Farris finds out the hard way that sometimes, Fate has other ideas. In the blink of an eye, her life gets turned upside down: a tornado rips through town, her loft catches fire, and an explosion decimates her workplace. A stranger, Emerson Ferrera, inserts himself into the violence, becoming guardian and protector. Farris begins to suspect her grandmother's warning of impending death might be more serious than she thought. Tragedy and betrayal follow, throwing Farris into a tailspin. Will she be able to trust the stranger she's become close to, or will his deception tear them apart? Find out if Farris' writing obsession is just a unique gift or a clue to a talent with a more supernatural twist in The Fate of Destiny, book #1 in the Fates series.

    I really love this book. The characters are very engaging and are fascinating within themselves. The lead characters Farris finds herself alone in the world at 17 with her mother in a mental institution and her grandmother in an old folks home. Her only solaces is her best friend Beelah and the stories that she writes which she treats possesively. She has been experiencing alot of bad luck in her life lately and the story explains how she handles incidences that happens to her. She is beginning I really love this book.

But all is not as it seems especially when she meets a boy name Emerson who becomes her salvation. Or is he her salvation. Is he her destiny? To find out she discovers that she has an unknown enemy set out to do her harm and slowly and by discoverying who that is she discovers another underground world and what destiny awaits. I love how the underground world explains situations within her world that would not normally make sense. The plot is original and the characters are very well developed. The only thing I did not like about the story was that it ends leaving you in mid air leaving you to want more. I then realize that this is the first in a series and when I did I quickly downloaded the other books in this series but I wanted to see how Fate stories align...LOL. Get it..align. I thought that quib was clever. It is more than worth the read and be prepared because if you like it you will read the other books in the series guaranteeed.

    I'm surprised by the high ratings for this book. I mean, it was Ok, for a free kindle book. It wasn't great. It wasn't even good. But it could have been with a few more edits, and a little more work on the plot. The beginning was great, and I was really into it. The characters were engaging and likeable.. and then it just kind of fell about and got really messy. Farris is 17, and has been writing stories since a young age.

It wasn't even good. But it could have been with a few more edits, and a little more work on the plot. The beginning was great, and I was really into it. The characters were engaging and likeable.. and then it just kind of fell about and got really messy. Farris is 17, and has been writing stories since a young age. She is compelled to do this, and to go back and edit certain ones, and to hoard them to such an extent that her small home is stacked from the floor to the ceiling with papers. We learn that her mother is in a mental institution, and the bank repossessed their home. Her grandmother is in a retirement home. And she likes scarves.. We meet Beelah, Farris's best friend, and Larrissa, the mean girl who stole Farris's boyfriend, and Emerson, a mysterious unsettling man who saves the girls from a freak tornado. We learn he is a weaver of chaos, but with a conscience (a little sooner than necessary, bu never mind) Farris's grandmother has a senile moment and warns Farris not to leave the house on her birthday, because a woman in a park told her she would come for her when she turned 18. This is all fine. I liked this, I thought it was intriguing and going somewhere.. and then we meet Devan. She is a fate of chaos, and desperate for no real reason for Farris to die. Only she cant get to her directly, so she tries everything else. And there is no real POINT to her evil-ness. She wants to prevent Farris from becoming the next fate of destiny so there can be 2 fates of chaos. and thats about it. It isn't really explained, it doesn't really make sense. And the book is pretty much made of many many attempts of Farris's life. She runs around a lot. And doesn't die a lot. And doesn't really react in a normal way to this, or to other people's deaths. A man that she has worked with for some time is killed in an explosion, and she doesn't bat an eyelid. The kindly old man who she rents from, dies tragically in the tornado and she doesn't shed a tear. It makes it unbelievable, and her less likeable. I think it aims to have a love story running through it.. but that doesn't really work either. They don't get it together. Or even almost get it together. And when Emerson touches her, she doesn't feel anything..? well ok then. Theres a few supporting characters thrown in there, really just to make it look like the main characters have friends. They have no real purpose and don't bring much to the plot. What are fates of destiny/ fate? What are weavers of chaos? This is not elaborated on enough for me, and remains vague and half thought through. It reads like she had an idea and ran with it, before she had fully ironed out the kinks. The characters aren't developed enough, and their motivations are not clear enough. She also hasn't spent time editing, and re- writing. With a little more care, and time and thought, this could have been so so much better. I think, Devan should have been cut out entirely.- Farris could have had just as many near death experiences on her actual birthday, to reach the same conclusion. I also would have liked for more to be made of the mother/ grandmother characters. But we didn't need both of them. Oh and the ending? I hate, really really hate to work to get to the last page of a book, and find that it just stops. She may as well of typed CLIFFHANGER there. Its as if she just got bored, and thought, yeah thats long enough now. That'll do. I probably won't be reading the sequels, as they are not free. And even if they were, I probably still wouldn't. Bourdon has potential. She needs to learn to slow down, and put more planning in.

    At 66% done: I really dislike multiple POVs, though I can usually deal with two, but this book has at least 3 (that I have seen so far).

At 100% done: Well, we know how I feel about the multiple POV thing, so I will just say that I kept skipping Devon's parts so that I could have some mystery and not know EVERYTHING that was going on. If the book was done just from the POV of Farris, I think it could have been more interesting, capturing, and better overall. Of course all this is just one person's opinion. Since I did skip over Devon's parts in the story (after I was over 70% through the book), I will just comment on the rest of the story -- it was good. As I said, it would have been better from one POV but since I just kind of 'made' it that way when I read it (by skipping Devon's parts after a while), it worked for me. The only other real issue I had with the book was that the e-book formatting was really messed up.

All she really has is her best friend Beelah and Bee’s family. Bee knows all about Farris’ family and her stories. Unbeknownst to Farris, she is to be the next Fate of Destiny. Devon, the new Fate of Chaos, doesn’t want that to happen. She has called on a weaver of Chaos to ensure Farris never fulfills her destiny. Emerson questions Devon but does what she asks. He creates chaos that targets Farris. However, something doesn’t feel right and he doesn’t want her to get hurt. He decides to protect her and find out why Devon really wants her dead. He enlists the help of his friend Theron as Devon sends a new weaver to finish what Emerson refused to do. Protecting Farris proves to be a fulltime job as time is running out. Devon has to make sure Farris dies before her birthday. She throws everything at Farris. Emerson is shocked when he learns the truth of who Farris really is and why Devon wants Farris gone. He has to reveal his own secrets as Farris is continually targeted. This book was interesting and full of crazy suspense. Farris is caught in tornadoes, a rabid dog pack attacks the farm house and her truck gets possessed. She has no idea what is happening or why she is being put through this. The reader knows more than the main character and you feel for Farris. He life is crazy already then add in her being chosen to be a fate. This poor girl doesn’t know what to think. Emerson is her knight in shining armor. He knows about the chaos and who has targeted her but has no idea why. He has to keep his secrets and protect Farris at the same time. This story definitely keeps you on your toes. The author throws a lot of action at you as the story unfolds. Farris is caught up in all of this without a clue. It is sad what she has to endure. Her journey is just the beginning. I want to see where the author takes it. I give it a 4 out of 5.

Using archaic words in an attempt to sound mystical just leaves a reader scratching their head (surcease) and other time words were just completely misused (replete vs complete). On the plus side, it earned its one star by being incredibly easy to read, and having an idea that could have been really clever in the hands of a more skilled author.

    The plot revolves around the myth of the three fates, but by the point of view of the author this myth gains a new meaning. Farris life is anything but easy. Her mother is institutionalized, her grandmother is senile, her house is no more and she has to work as a waitress, to be able to pay for a tinny apartment over a garage.

Farris life is anything but easy. Her mother is institutionalized, her grandmother is senile, her house is no more and she has to work as a waitress, to be able to pay for a tinny apartment over a garage. It almost doesn't have space enough to stock all the stories she feels compelled to write since she was eight. Then, only days before her eighteen birthday, her life goes from bad to chaotic, literally. Some unknown powerful been wants her dead, and to achieve this goal, this enemy known as Fate of Chaos will not measure efforts. Using strange men with the ability to control the weather enter other things, she began her hunt sending a tornado to annihilate Farris. From then on, Farris life begins to seem like hell. All kind of things may occur near her. Storms, fires, explosions, you name it. But is not an easy thing to change ones destiny, and with the help of her friend Beelah, and the enigmatic Emerson and his friend Theron, Farris will face it all. The book is good, but again I found myself disappointed with the lack of romance... Well, not totally, it is obvious that Emerson and Farris will have something in the future, but still I wish that there was something more between them in this book. But this is my opinion. I recommend and will be close watching this author, even if her other books didn't catch my attention till now.

    I am easily attracted to paranormal romances. This one has an interesting premise and cleaver writing. The concepts of fate, chaos, destiny, calamity and other outcomes are ascribed to characters of this book. In other words there are people walking around, visible to others who control these outcomes. The goal is to keep chaos and destiny in balance.

Weaved into all of this is a romance between the central character and a weaver of chaos , a pact with a best friend, a war between good and bad and so forth. Believe it or not it all hangs together in an interesting, fanciful YA story that I enjoyed enough to purchase the next book without my usual irritation over the sequel approach.

As content as she can be under the circumstances, she is determined to continue her obsession of writing the stories of people she believes she's imagined from their birth to their deaths in intricate detail and one day publish. Her dreams are slowly shattered little by little through a series of mysterious and deadly events that rock her tiny Oklahoma town as she nears her 18th birthday.

Breakneck speed twists and turns will keep your fingers flying over the screen to get to the next page. Honestly, download them all....otherwise, like me, you'll waste too much time between.

    I really enjoyed this book. I was kind of confused in the beginning maybe because I wasn't understanding the whole Fate of Chaos thing at first but once it picked up I really couldn't put it down. AS the story goes on, I just couldn't plug my eyes away from what was going to happen next. Its One of those stories where it seems like non stop conflict and chaos every page. The main character and her best friend are a perfect match and I just fell in love with their relationship they have.

    I had a little "let's download every free kindle book you can find" party, where I picked this one up. This is the first book I've read dealing with elements and all, so I was apprehensive at first. I really liked the story, the characters (for the most part), and I thought the whole Weaver of Chaos thing was interesting. The only downside? The end was a total cliffhanger! I am gonna have to pick the next book up soon.

    I truly love the writing of Danielle Bourdon. Unfortunately, "The Fate of Destiny " just deliver for me. The sad part is I am not sure why. The characters were interesting (great protagonist) and there was plenty of action but I just wasn't totally invested in the book. Usually, I finish a book of this length in a few hours; but, it had been five days! Oh well, you can't love everything. Beautiful cover though.

    Read all in a cold rainy spring Sunday afternoon. Vividly imaginative with original ideas. Chaos and Destiny as "human" entities fighting for a balance. An eternal warfare played on very tight rules to enable the preservation of the Universe. What will happen if Chaos decides that those rules are there to be broken? Great!

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE THE FATE SERIES!!! It started out kinda boring but I kept telling myself to keeping reading and I'm so glad I did. It is a great story that keeps going. One thing I like about it is it is very family friendly...I don't think there is a single curse word in it and no sexual puns. I love supernatural books as well

    If you have read any of Danielle's other books you will enjoy this one just as well. Lets of great twist and turns in the story. I can't say much more without giving away the plot of the story. If you are looking for a great new book to read check this one out for sure.

    What a cliffhanger to end on. Pretty good book for its genre. Plot is good. Like powers. Main characters are fairly well done. Supporting characters could use work.
