About Fated:

Fated carries the reader into Djenrye—a world parallel to our own. A dimension that is pristine and untouched by industry or pollution. Yet, despite all its beauty, Djenrye is in turmoil.

Phraile Highlae, the home of our heroine, Carlynn, is brutally attacked by a faction known as the Rebellion. She and her husband, Raynok—the city’s Guardian—are forced to flee for their lives and the life of their unborn child.

The rebellious faction is led by Dekren, who seeks to control both Djenrye and the parallel world, Terra-hun. To do so, he requires the blood and power of a Guardian to be drained into Ty Ortehlae—the five Orbs which hold the balance of the earth. When Dekren’s soldiers kill Raynok in a vicious attack, the last Guardian becomes…the child of Raynok and Carlynn.

There is turmoil within Dekren’s ranks, as well. His Second in Command, Torren (whose name you should know from Fable), is planning a coup of his own. If he succeeds, he will take command of the Rebellion and, with any luck, Djenrye and Terra-hun.

With the aid of a Master Warrior, Ghorgon, Carlynn must escape the Rebels and overcome the dangers of the wilderness to find a safe haven for her infant. She is driven to the edge of her strength, willpower, and willingness to do whatever it takes to protect her child and prevent the destruction of both dimensions.”

  1. It sounds like a great book! Love the cover!

    • Thanks Laura! I hope you download yourself a copy! Fable should be read first so as not to ruin some of the surprise but Fated can stand alone.

  2. This sounds really interesting. Thanks for the giveaway.

  3. I have not yet had the chance to read it

  4. I haven’t read Fable yet but this sounds interesting. I love the concept of the parallel dimensions.

    • Well, now’s a great time plus the bonus of reading Fated after for only 99 cents! I hope you pick up both copies and please let me know if you liked them! 😉

  5. Fated sounds great! I’ll have to check it out.

  6. It sounds good. I haven’t read yet.

  7. Gorgeous cover, and ever since reading Philip Pullman so many years ago, I do enjoy a good parallel universe story.

    • Wonderful! It is, however, the best if you read Fable first, but Fated can stand alone. If you give them a read let me know what you thought! 😉

  8. Catherine (Cat) A Menz

    I am very interested in reading both Fable and Fated. I have bought Fated and will be reading it within the next few days. I know it says to read them in order but I don’t have the money for Fabled at this time, so it will have wait. Thank you for the giveaway and turning me on to yet another series to read. 🙂

    • Thanks Cat for buying Fated! I understand the money issue! When you do download Fable I hope you enjoy it too! Please let me know what you think of both of them! 😉

  9. Interesting cover, sounds like a good read…

  10. I have not read it yet. But it looks great!! Thank you for your giveaway

  11. Linda Szymoniak

    It sounds interesting, but I haven’t read it.

  12. This book sound so exciting, I would like to read it.

  13. It sounds intense but engaging!

  14. Once I see the characters have ‘fantasy nerd’ names (I mean that as a compliment; they are far more poetic than ‘normal’ names) I know it is something I could be into.

  15. I haven’t read it yet, but I like fantasy, so I might check it out.

  16. FATED looks & sounds fabulous!!!

  17. I have nit read it but wnt to.

  18. Hi, no I haven’t read either yet, but thanks to this post I am now going to get both.

    • That’s wonderful! I hope you do, you won’t be sorry! I think you’ll enjoy them and please let us know what you thought!Thanks again!

  19. This sounds interesting!

  20. Sounds like a great read. I’ll have to check it out.

  21. I have actually never read Fable but would love to read both it and Fated. They sound like books that I would really enjoy and could get into reading.


  22. Sounds great. Love the alternate world

  23. Fated sounds awesome! I would love to read it.

  24. I’m looking forward to reading the new book.

  25. I haven’t read Fated yet, but it really sounds like something that I would enjoy.

  26. Caitlin McClure

    I haven’t read Fable, looks interesting as does Fated

  27. I have actually never heard of it.

  28. i haven’t read them, but i want to! they sound good!

  29. The book sounds great, however I am not a huge fan of the cover.

    • Really?! You’re the first person to say that. It’s the symbol for Phraile Highlae, one of the cities in Djenrye.

    • Hi Natalie – I, too, was surprised that you didn’t like the cover. Would you mind leaving a comment as to why? We love to hear what our fans think.

      • I don’t mean to be mean, I just don’t particularly like the color scheme. However, you should never judge a book by its cover 🙂 The story sounds interesting though

        • LOL! No offense was taken at all. I was just curious what it was that did not appeal to you. We really do listen to our fans and appreciate all kinds of input! We hope you decide to look pass the cover. 😉

  30. No I have not read your book but I am looking forward too

    • Glad to hear that Niki! We hope you enjoy it. Let us know what you think. Thanks for your support!

  31. Jacob LaFountaine

    I haven’t read it yet. I do like a good deal of war

  32. I haven’t had the chance to read it yet, but it sounds interesting.

  33. Fated sounds like an edge-of-your-seat kind of book. I would like to read it. I haven’t read Fable yet.

    • Fable is the edge of your seat too, but it does start out a little slow than most are used too. It picks up a lot around chapter 5 and then holds onto you! You should check them both out! 😉

  34. I think it sounds interesting but, I’m not sure if I should read the companion book first.

    • Although Fated can stand alone, it really is best to read Fable first. But it can be read in the other order. You should grab both and if you do let me know if you liked them! 😉

  35. Fated sounds very interesting.

    • Hi Judith – I hope you give it a read. The Lorn Prophecy series is an epic fantasy, the first book of which (Fable) is predominantly urban fantasy. Fated is a companion novel that leans more toward classic fantasy. It is a great stand-alone book, but also gives deeper insight into the life and adventures of Stevie Barrett, the heroine of The Lorn Prophecy series. Let us know what you think after you’ve read the books! Now is a great time to download Fated! :0)

  36. I would love to read Fated, it sounds very interesting.

    • Hi Karen, Now is a great time to give it a read at a 99 cent download! Let us know what you think. We love hearing from our readers!

  37. Valerie Taylor Mabrey

    I have put this on my reading list for summer.

    • I hope you grabbed a copy while it was still 99 cents. It went back to normal price this morning. After you do read it we would love to hear from you and thanks for your support!

  39. I haven’t read it yet but I can’t wait!

  41. sounds like a fun one!

  42. I have not read it yet but I am putting it on my reading list!

  43. no i havent read it yet at all

  44. I’ve just started delving into this genre and to be honest, I am loving it! These 2 books look great to read. It looks like they will both take me away to a new and different time and place!

    • They will Janice! Fable is a mixture of Urban and epic fantasy as Stevie goes on her journey. Fated is all epic fantasy and is in Stevie’s past. I think you will like them! Plus they are a series so there’s more to come!

  45. I haven’t read it but it looks interesting

  46. It sounds really good, I’d like to read it

  47. I love the idea of parallel worlds and am looking forward to reading this.

  48. Linda Trinklein

    and only 99c right now, sounds like it should be worth alot more! thanks!!

    • Thanks Linda! We wanted to get Fated out more to people that’s why we did a sale. When you’re a new author there is a lot of competition out there so you need to get in the spot light! 😉

  49. The book sounds very interesting, but I think I would want to read Fable first.

  50. I have not read it yet but it looks great.

  51. haven’t read it yet……though have a friend that suggested it…. fingers crossed

  62. sound good from what I see of it up there.

  63. I’ve never read any true fantasy, but the idea of a world with no industry is interesting. I’d love the thought of nature untouched, but not sure what I’d do without my couch and TV. 🙂

  64. How many years do you have written books?

  65. I want to read this book,it’s a very nice and interesting book and i will buy it soon 🙂
