Games of Fate: A New Adult Urban Fantasy with Strong Romantic Elements  (Fate ~ Fire ~ Shifter ~ Dragon #1)
 3 of 5 stars false
Rysa Torres misses information. Loses concentration. Her attention problems randomize her life but she pushes forward anyway, doing the best she can—until monsters activate a part of her she didn’t know she had.
As visions of the future whip inside her head, Rysa realizes the truth: She’s a Fate.
And she will set fire to the world.
All her options explode. Her family ripped away, what little control she had destroyed, Rysa is left with one choice: Will she die to stop the coming flames, or will she allow the man and the dragon she loves to die in her place?

Ghouls called Burners who devour with fire and acid. Shifters who shape much more than their bodies. And two dragons who speak with color and pattern.
It starts here, now, with one young woman’s fight against a burning future—and against the death of the man she loves
. Contains Adult Sexual Content and some violent imagery


****This book was part of a blog tour I received a copy for my honest review****
This book starts of with a bang and just doesn't stopped.
Rysa Torres things she is just an ordinary student, well as ordinary as she can be with ADHD. She struggles through life unable to remain focused without her medication. All of a sudden she is attacked and she finds out she is a Fate. She is flung into an insane world of shifters, burners and fates. She realises that she has been lied too and kept in the dark and that she is a pawn that could mean the end of the world. Landon and Dragon are the only ones who seem to be able to help her, but Rysa struggles with her feelings for this pair, especially when she realises she may be the end of them.
This is the first book in a new urban fantasy series and the underlying story is truly original and fascinating. Normally there is a lot of world building in the first of a series and that is no different in Games of Fate. There is a lot of information given to you in this book, so much that at times I struggled to formulate what the book was telling me in my mind. Rysa is a fate, but she is a singular, which means she can see the past, present and future. The scenes with Rysa were what I mostly found difficult to distinguish between, as most times I was unsure if it was present day or a vision. Sometimes in books these things are outlined with italics, but not in this book.
In saying this I did really enjoy the story and was eager to find out exactly what was going on. It is a fast paced book, which made the book fly by. I enjoyed the different characters and the relationship between Rysa, Landon and Dragon was interesting. There could have been a bit more romance between the couple for me, as I did like it when it focused on them and their growing relationship.
This is a solid start to what could be a really great series, I will be checking out the next book.
