    Great start to this trilogy.

    I really enjoyed Inevitable. It is the first of a brand new trilogy from Jason Letts and I know this is a promising start. This story is from the perspective of a spirit; a woman stuck watching 18 year-old Nathan Wheeler as he dies. She realizes how selfless Nathan was in his actions and she feels he deserves a reward for his sacrifice. Nathan has had his own share of heartbreak over the last year of his life and, if anything, the spirit wishes to let him have a "do-over"; a chance to live the last year of his life over.

    Nathan's mother had passed away and he was now responsible for his younger sister, Cammie. This meant he had to give up his college dream, move back home, and get a stable job. He begins working at a cement factory but that income just wasn't enough. His death seemed like an easy choice because he knew that the life insurance would more than pay for Cammie's future; so he decides that when catastrophe strikes the factory, he would sacrifice his life to save the others in the building.

    The spirit sees this and turns back time. She takes human form to try to help give Nathan a better final year of life. She tells him her name is Apoxy and she fills his life with mystery and adventure. They have some great times together but she doesn't realize that when she disappears, it hurts Nathan. She doesn't fully understand what makes him the happiest; which seems to be simply spending time with her. Apoxy's efforts become stronger as she tries to help him get extra money for the family, but soon she realizes she may have fallen in love with the human boy who is destined to die.

    This is a wonderful paranormal romance. Nathan was a heartbreaking character who's compassion and love sparked off the page. It's easy to sympathize with Nathan's situation and see what a great big brother he was to Cammie. Cammie is fiercely strong-willed, intelligent, and protective of her brother. She was the perfect little sister needed for this story. Her personality kept Nathan in check.

    Apoxy was fascinating. It was a unique take on the supernatural and the idea that this spirit had such power over the universe presented many questions for the reader. Overall, she realized watching humans, and posing as one, were two completely different things and that maybe humans weren't so easy to figure out.

    In the end, Apoxy must decide if she can let Nathan go and let destiny take it's course. This story has a lot of action, drama, and suspense. I was on the edge of my seat during the end of the book. I was thrilled to see that Jason made sure these characters developed a relationship at a gradual pace that showed their true feelings for each other. It was not an easy road for them but it made them stronger characters.

    Inevitable is the perfect beginning to this supernatural love story. The ending was a shock and I'm sure the next installment of this series will be just as action-packed and astounding as this one.

    Great read for Middle Schoolers...Okay read for YA

    This was a fairly easy read. The base line of the book was good. It is about "fate" deciding to give this boy a great year before is set date of death. The reason she chooses to do this is because of how selfless he gives up his life. Along the way disasters start to occur and in the end will love be enough to defeat death. For those who love strong passion and romance this would not be the book for you. I think it is suppose to be YA but I feel that middle schoolers would enjoy this a lot more. Good read just a little....watered down.

    An awesome read!

    After reading the synopsis of this book, I had to give it a try and I am glad that I did! The characters are really interesting and realistic (even Apoxy!) While reading this story I thought that I knew how it would end, but I couldn't have been more wrong. The ending floored me. I tried to "turn" the page. "There's got to be more," I thought, but no that really was the end! This book is very well written and left me wanting more! I can't wait for the sequel.
    If you are even looking at this book, you must like the genre so buy it, you won't be disappointed.

    Great book!

    I highly recommend this book. It was an easy read, and I found it impossible to put down. I have long been a fan of the paranormal and romance genres, but this book was refreshingly different. I can't wait for the sequels.

    An amazing story

    I just read some reviews a minute ago, and to my suprise alot of them were negative. I really thought this was a fantastic book. It had a strong storyline that i liked. I generally liked the whole idea of the book. It was cheap and has two other equally great books that go along with it. Highly worth it to read!

    5 Stars for Inevitable

    Author Jason Letts has taken fate to an all new level with the first book in his new trilogy - Inevitable. It's easy to find yourself lost within the pages as Letts paints a picture of selflessness at the hands of one eighteen year old boy.

    The first chapter of the book is a doozy. I had to take a couple of deep breaths after reading it. It shows us vividly the end of the story and the fate of our main character Nathan. He's caught in a selfless act that makes the "spirit" of fate for the whole universe take notice. She is moved by the choice Nathan makes and vows to go back and make his last year of life better.

    We learn more about Nathan from the spirits point of view and see just how hard of a life Nathan has. Sadly he's lost his mother to a horrible disease and has to take over the household, including helping raise his younger sister - Cammie. With hard times ahead of him this spirit vows to make Nathans life better. He moves back home, giving up college and takes a job working any place that would hire him. He ends up at a cement factory, with pay that makes it hard to make ends meet. He has only thoughts of his sister's future and it's based on this alone that he chooses to make such an overwhelming sacrifice.

    So, fate knows she can help make the last year better for him. goes back and somewhat barges into his life. She shows up and names herself Apoxy - crazy I know - and takes Nathan away from his life and goes out of her way to give him a thrilling, happy and crazily adventurous - unbeknownst to him - last year.

    With his families' money troubles and Apoxy's random appearances and disappearances Nathan's life isn't any better and she finds herself failing and doesn't seem to understand why. She is drawn more to Nathan and is unable to figure out what's not only happening to Nathan, but also what's happening to her. She's not use to the human body she inhibits or the human emotions she's feeling.

    Both Nathan and Apoxy are great characters. Each is different and the further I read the more I could see their lives weaving together. The romance between the two was fascinating being that the book is written from Apoxy's view and how unknown everything is, even the human emotion such as love. Her life as a human has some twists and turns along the way that even she couldn't see coming.

    With Nathan's fate ahead of him, I was on pins and needles to see how Apoxy and Cammie might come together to change his mind or if they could change that horrible day that was ahead of him. The ending was extremely shocking and threw me, and that last line that will leave readers more than ready for the next book.

    All in All any reader will find much to love about Inevitable. With a strong story, real characters and romance, readers looking for a different take on a paranormal story should give this book a read. The next book in the trilogy - Impossible is due out sometime later this year.

    Great Trilogy!

    I read through these so fast- not that they were short, but because they were so good! The last two books are by Jason Letts and are great! Suggest reading if you love Amanda Hocking books!

    Waste of $ and time

    The idea behind the story is intriguing, however the story is very boring and drags on and on and on......Not worth the effort.

    good book, nice story

    I really like the whole idea of the book and i loved the story. Was a tear jerker. The thing i like most is the ending. its a true life ending that slaps u in the face. Almost like u have no control of your destiny, and if something changes it, your fate in the end will always be the same. cant wait for the sequel. There was a lot of grammer errors and misspelings. but good story.

    slow to start, but you warm up to it. The author does a really good job to transition you into a joy ride. I couldn't set this book down. The end has a suprise that will leave your mind blown away.

    Slow and uninteresting

    A very uninteresting read. The proof-reading is awful as well making the story challenging to get lost in. The story is very predictable all the way through. A very very slow story with way too much writing for the little that happens. I wouldn't suggest this book to anyone. I notice proof-reading problems in a lot of Amanda Hocking's books but generally enjoy most so thought I would try this one. Definitely appears written by an uneducated student due to all the errors.

    Better than expected

    This book takes a good look at fate and the choices we face. Are the choices we make what makes us who we are, or do we make those choices because of who we are?

    Recommended to Fans of Stephenie Meyer and Amanda Hocking

    I noticed _Inevitable_ for the cover. After reading it, I definitely think this book will appeal to readers who like sweet and emotional romances like those of Stephanie Meyer or Amanda Hocking. The writing style is different, though, so I recommend trying the preview before buying. _Inevitable_ was an interesting blend of realistic with the ridiculous, but I don't mean that as an insult. A being charged with keeping all the possibilities of the parallel universes "fair" decides to give herself a body so she can improve a guy's last year of life. If the idea sounds ludicrous to you-well, it does to me, too, and I enjoyed the story. Despite everything the girl knows-and despite her awareness that her ability to "see" possibilities suffers when she dons a body-she's caught off-guard even by certain things linked to plans she made before taking a body, which suggests she can't foresee events she's influenced, but I don't believe it ever said that outright. She's also remarkably emotional, but that does sorta make sense, since she's not used to having to deal with hormones. Still, certain scenes didn't work for me, mostly towards the beginning. It's possible that's because I'm a fairly logical, rational girl and therefore don't have much frame of reference for understanding an emotion-ridden girl. Even though I do have a hormone disorder that sometimes screws up my moods for no reason beyond my hormones going bonkers. Honestly, I wasn't planning to read any more in the series, but the last section really made the book for me, because it was perfect in the characters' imperfection. The ending line in particular makes me want to pick up book 2.

    good if you have nothing else to do

    This book starts out a little confusing and slow for most people. It takes you about half of the book to finally start getting into the story and then it ends on a cliff hanger. The romance is sweet and endearing but generic. No real emotion to make you cry or laugh or really seriously connect with the characters. Just dribble. But, if your bored and need to do something with your time this book is a quick read that would only take maybe a day to even get through. The language is very simple that a child in grade school could comprehend and read with out a problem.
