It’s just a fact of book nerd life that we probably know more about our favorite books than eeeeveryone around us. And yes, this probably means the bookstore employees at our local fave. We’re sorry to say it, because we love them, and we trust them, but there are times that they just might not have all the answers! And well, because we’re us, we probably do.
You know when we’ve found this is especially true? When we’re dealing with the ever expansive world of YA science fiction and fantasy. There are just so many elements, so many names, so many characters and worlds and intricate plots… it’s easy to not be able to keep up on! So if you’re anything like us and have been known to butt in and maaaybe educate some new readers while they’re asking other people questions, well, you’ll be able to relate.

About The Fates Divide
Fate brought them together. Now it will divide them.
The lives of Cyra Noavek and Akos Kereseth are ruled by their fates, spoken by the oracles at their births. The fates, once determined, are inescapable.
Akos is in love with Cyra, in spite of his fate: He will die in service to Cyra’s family. And when Cyra’s father, Lazmet Noavek—a soulless tyrant, thought to be dead—reclaims the Shotet throne, Akos believes his end is closer than ever.
As Lazmet ignites a barbaric war, Cyra and Akos are desperate to stop him at any cost. For Cyra, that could mean taking the life of the man who may—or may not—be her father. For Akos, it could mean giving his own. In a stunning twist, the two will discover how fate defines their lives in ways most unexpected.
