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.
Beware....this book was knuckle biting adventure.I really enjoyed the action in this book. I loved skye she is a strong female character thats smart and resourceful and a mom you cant ask for anything better written about this character. I wanted to give it five stars but I could not ,due to being left with multi questions about the tower. This book was only 125nook pgs the rest of the book was the prequel to the next book so your gonna have to buy into the series to find out what's really behind the towers and circle"o". There was sad parts to this story line so be ready for some tears. Maybe the author will have a way to turn those sad moments into omg that's why that happened, Either way I'm hooked so I'm gonna have to be committed to buy the next book to find out what's the future holds for leo and skye. I hope the next book is longer and doesn't leave us hanging for answers and is more complete in the story line... if your on a book budget this might be expensive due to the fact there's a couple more books in the series I'll write a review on the next book and let you know .... kudous to this writer on her action scenes with her characters well done......vw
Ruins of Fate (The Omni Towers, Prequel) by Jamie A. Waters is a wonderful story that I have read. This is the prequel to start this brand new series that I fell in love with. I love reading this action, adventure romance with general fantasy thrown in and I highly recommend this story to everyone who loves all of this in their stories. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
I was fortunate to receive an ARC of this book from the author. Although this is a prequel to the Omni Towers series, you can read it at any time, or even read it as a stand-alone (although the ending will leave you so intrigued that you will want to read more!) I actually had read all six of the books in this series before reading Ruins of Fate. I loved it! I'm addicted to it! I read this book in one day because I could not put it down. Without giving away any spoilers, Jamie Waters gives us a glimpse into the past that allows us to see the relationship between Kayla, Veridian and Leo. And then there was Skye, Veridian's mother. I absolutely loved this character. She is a kick-ass heroine who scavenges the ruins, protects those around her and stands up for her beliefs. This book is not for the weak of heart. There is so much fast paced adventure and action that it will leave you out of breath. A definite must-read if you are a post-apocalyptic fan. Keep in mind that this is NOT Young Adult. Just like the other books in this series, there is a wee bit of steamy romance... but very well done. Fantastic world-building! I am currently experiencing a book hangover. After reading this series, I will be looking for more from this author!
