Fear of death is all too common. Visions of it chill the bones and skip heartbeats. Seeing it coming and knowing only you can rescue the soul of the victim from the fiery bowels of hell…that’s downright life-altering.

Cassandra Cosgrove’s life was altered at the age of sixteen when she found out that it was her responsibility to save the lives, and ultimately the souls, of innocent victims targeted by Hell’s demons. As impossible as it seemed at first, she was able to live a fairly normal life, while secretly fulfilling her obligation as a Guardian of Fate.

But years later Fate has its own plan when her visions begin drastically changing at the same time two mysterious men appear in her life. Cassandra suddenly finds herself caught in a battle between good and evil, with her own soul on the line. When it seems everyone in her life has a secret they’ve been hiding from her, who can she trust to be the Guardian of her Fate?


This was very frustrating read for me. There is a story here and a good one, but I felt it got muddled through.

Cassandra is a Guardian of Fate, she is supposed to protect the souls of Humans and if necessary prevent them from dying. My thought on Cassandra was she just wasn’t strong enough. She didn’t like what was going on around her, but she really didn’t assert herself. She just didn’t put her foot down in certain situations throughout the story. Like how no one wanted to tell her anything...that grated on my nerves to no end.

The relationship between her and Hunter was good, but I felt it really didn’t development enough. I liked the play between herself, Hunter and Caleb…it was very interesting and I enjoyed that aspect of the story.

L J Kentowski is a wonderful story teller and her writing it fabulous; I was just a little frustrated reading Fate #1. I am however looking forward to the next book in the series.
