Thank you very much to Regine Abel for providing a copy of her novel in exchange for an honest review Regine Abel’s Blind Fate is a phenomenal expansion into the Veredian Chronicles and a must read for all Sci fi Romance fans The fast paced novel never lets up for a second with a whirlwind plot sensual romance and first rate proseBlind Fate follows the story of the elusive Valena who we briefly met in the first novel in the series Escaping Fate Valena is a key member of an international kidnapping ring assisting the Guldans in assaulting young Xelixian women in order to ‘heal’ the Tainted – but all against her will Valena is an incredibly intelligent woman who wants nothing than to escape from her life of slavery but she is blind I am so thankful that Abel decided to feature a blind Romance protagonist because so often the Romance characters tend to be perfect and flawless which can get a little drainingValena uses her considerable wits to achieve her goals and is uite the badass I also had a lot of empathy for her character for the life she had been forced into when she so desperately just wants to lead a ‘normal’ life Valena does not trust easily due to her past and has a difficult time letting anyone through to see the real Valena within Although she desperately wants to escape her circumstances Valena is trapped by a cruel and crafty master until she meets RhulRhul Valena’s love interest is one of my favourite characters well after Ghan and one of the ‘villains’ from Escaping Fate He comes across as a little standoffish and cunning but through his POVs and Valena’s psi ability we learn that there is much to the male than meets the eye Zhul’s past is fraught with betrayal and disappointment so he finds it extremely difficult to trust anyone especially womenAlthough you don’t need to read the first novel in the series Escaping Fate I would suggest that you do – because it’s so enjoyable and because the main characters from the first novel appear in this one – but primarily because the you get the chance to experience Zhul’s exceptional character development In Escaping Fate Zhul is one of the antagonists and is suspected of having ordered the murder of Khel’s family one of the love interests in Escaping Fate Throughout Blind Fate I couldn’t help but contrast Zhul from the first novel and how much he has changed – or rather how the reader’s perception of him has changed We learn much about Zhul his past his desires his family and his heart Much like Escaping Fate Abel’s world building just blew me away From political intrigue to complex social issues to well defined cultures and species the world of Blind Fate is deeply relatable despite the inclusion of alien races and the suspense will keep you on the very edge of your seat But at its heart Blind Fate is a love story about two very different people who for all intents and purposes believe they are unlovable but who find acceptance and passion with one anotherThe plot was fast paced and made the book impossible to put down While the novel is primarily a Romance Abel successfully weaves a complex storyline about international politics and the dire effects of slavery throughout two – and eventually three – books that captivates the reader and has us completely engrossed within the story and characters Abel’s writing style is engaging and arresting which allows the reader to breeze through the book totally entranced by the storyBlind Fate is one of the most compelling Romance SFF books I have read in a very long time Although a standalone Abel cleverly interweaves multiple storylines and characters across novels while also allowing the reader to immerse themselves in Rhul and Valena’s story Don’t miss out on this fantastic book – and while you’re at it check out Escaping Fate too I had the great pleasure of getting to help beta read and edit this fine story And while I have yet to see the final product I was still thoroughly enchanted and consumed by this second tale in the Veredian Chronicles Blind Fate the seuel to Escaping Fate by Regine Abel Voted First Canadian Author is a sweeping saga of intrigues and alliances of deceptions and desires of forgiveness and family Ms Abel's story carries you along alternating points of view offering surprises and suspense while also building her world developing her characters and providing her readers with a passionate and very satisfying love story that transcends planetary cultures races and misunderstandings While this is a standalone novel Abel deftly gets the reader up to speed on the backstory with a no nonsense Prologue with a satisfying ending it does incorporate the characters from the first novel and advances their stories alongside those of the primary protagonists Ultimately I believe it is all the enjoyable if you've read the first in the series I can't wait to see where the next tale in the saga takes us Regine is uickly becoming one of my favourite authors Another great book I love the way Regine is able to bring her characters to life and make you feel like you are a part of the story while wishing you could actually be there The story flows nicely from Escaping Fate and reveals of the characters I came to love Excitement frustration humour anger tears this story has it all and the twist you may not see coming Give it a read if you enjoy paranormal romance this is a must for your shelf Some awesome and exciting stuff happening here I am glad to have gotten the pleasure of reading this seuel as an advanced copy I love the world and how the characters fit into it Abel is great at making characters that really tug on your heartstrings I just couldn't put this down until I had finished it If you loved the first you will assuredly love this one I love this serie from Regine and this one was no execptionI am a sucker for SciFi romances and I really enjoyed reading this oneI received a free advance copy of this book in exchange for my unbiased review MAN I like this series The world building is top notch the hits keep on coming and the romance is both sweet and sexy Plus we got to see of Amalia and her dudes and I LOVE revisiting couples after the factBut this is Valena and Zhul's story For the most part at least I guess I should say it's their romance The story itself is bigger than any one couple After all there are still Veredians in captivity not to mention the intriguing secret of who the Tuureans are and why they're working so hard to rescue the Veredians I have suspicions mind you SUSPICIONSAs for Valena and Zhul they both have their fair share of issues to get past Valena's ability to control others isn't something she shares willingly and Zhul's father's indiscretions have left in him in a tough place Being forced into the position they're forced into is probably the only thing that made Zhul give Valena a second chance once her secret is revealed That and Lhor's words of wisdomBlood houses danger the ever present hope that the Taint can be contained in some way and a smokin' hot romance even when held in captivity This series is amazingly captivating and I'm ALL IN on wherever the next installment takes us Kelly Reading the Paranormal Amount of sex 25 5How explicit 25 5Story 5 5OVERALL 5 5Blind Fate is the second book in the Veredian Chronicles series by author Regine Abel Even though this story does focus mainly on a different couple the underlining storyline is a continuation of the first story Ms Abel does a fabulous job of beginning the book with a recap for those in need of a refresher Although to get the best understanding you really need to read Escaping Fate firstWe met Valena in Escaping Fate working at one of the Blood Houses and I instantly felt compassionate towards her It felt so wonderful to be back in this world with all my favorite characters that I became engrossed from the start The uniue and gripping storyline had me growling at my kids when they asked me for dinner Gah put the Kindle down? Never Needless to say my kids received microwave meals while I continued to readWe also met Zhul in the first book and he was one of the main adversaries I wasn’t uite sure how I felt about him but I kept reading and OMG I just love him I really wish I had someone to buddy read with me because I want to tell you ALL about the plot but I won’t You just need to trust me and go out and read this seriesIt’s simply MarvelousVoluntarily Reviewed a Gifted Copy 5 Amazing Out of this World Stars So when I read the first book in this series I was blown away and now that I have read the next book I must repeat myself Wow What an out of this world adventure this book took me on I was hooked from the very beginning and on the edge of my seat with all of the twists and turns There was romance action adventure danger and some very hot and steamy moments Now this book is listed as a stand alone however I highly recommend reading Escaping Fate first in order to really get the full experience of what is going on While Amalia Lhor and Khel are not the main characters of this book they do play a large role in the story line Having an understanding of what happened in their book makes this book so much better Blind Fate follows Valena and her journey to free herself from slavery Like Amalia Valena also possesses psi abilities which make her extremely valuable to the ones who want to control her Finally getting the opportunity she has been waiting for Valena embarks on a journey to not only free herself but the rest of the women being held as well This book drew me in and didn't let me go from start to finish It is a must read book for sure You will not be disappointed By Alisa I loved this book just like I loved Escaping Fate The continuing saga of all of these people sucks me in and I have begun to feel like they are family I was honored to be able to read a advanced copy of Blind Fate and I couldn't put it down I was up until 3 am for a few nights Regine Abel is a phenomenal story teller I felt like I was watching this on a movie screen playing before me Paranormal romance was never my thing before I started reading Miss Abel's books Do yourself a favor read Escaping Fate and Blind Fate and anything and everything she puts out you absolutely will not be sorryme in and I have begun to feel like they are family I was honored to be able to read a advanced copy of Blind Fate and I couldn't put it down I was up until 3 am for a few nights Regine Abel is a phenomenal story teller I felt like I was watching this on a movie screen playing before me Paranormal romance was never my thing before I started reading Miss Abel's books Do yourself a favor read Escaping Fate and Blind Fate and anything and everything she puts out you absolutely will not be sorrycontinuing saga of all of these people sucks me in and I have begun to feel like they are family I was honored to be able to read a advanced copy of Blind Fate and I couldn't put it down I was up until 3 am for a few nights Regine Abel is a phenomenal story teller I felt like I was watching this on a movie screen playing before me Paranormal romance was never my thing before I started reading Miss Abel's books Do yourself a favor read Escaping Fate and Blind Fate and anything and everything she puts out you absolutely will not be sorry The second book in this series picks up where #1 finished and it doesn't disappointIt was good to catch up with much loved characters from Escaping Fate but this is the story of Valena and ZuhlBoth these characters are well fleshed out and have believable back stories The attraction between them lights sparks but their relationship has many obstacles before they can achieve their HEAThis is a tale of twisted politics family rivalry and it is not without surprises There is action near death betrayal and help from unexpected uarters but at its heart this is a love storyThe world building just gets better and better and you can imagine yourself there in the thick of the actionWhilst this story can be read as a standalone you really need to read #1 to get the most out of itI voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book and was pleased to be chosen as a Beta reader
