I had the pleasure of reading an advanced copy of Fate's Crossing by J.R. Smith and it is a story of an unexpected blend of supernatural, prophecy/fate and coming of age story. With the young Liana, traveling from Oklahoma all the way to California for an internship her ordinary life suddenly seems to take on a whole different form even before her plane from Oklahoma lands.
I don’t like it when reviews spoil books for me, so without giving too much away, the first installment of the Black Blood Legacies Series: Fate’s Crossing is sure to grip each reader with an enticing bite of mystery, humor and wit. This young adult series also brings a flirtatious rivalry war between Liana and Sean—a handsome, yet smug fellow internship recipient, who unbeknownst to Liana, ends up following her to California.
Chased by an impending disastrous, unforeseen event, we follow Liana (and Sean) on an adventurous, quest fulfilling prophecy spanning over hundreds of years revealing a few secretes about Sean and even herself that ingenuous Liana was never aware of.
While this book held, an interesting twists and mysterious, thought provoking secrets, I must admit that I found it difficult to believe that Liana was 24 years old or that she was not in High School.
I believe, Liana’s inner dialogue novice banter will lead any reader to believe that they are following the life of a 16 or 17-year-old girl, which is why I gave this book 4 stars. I am looking forward to the next installment of the Black Blood Legacies Series and what game-changing event will Liana and Sean head in to next
