Fitting in has never been in the cards. Not part of the hand Fate dealt me. My superpower is animals, magical and otherwise. They adore me. Birds and insects too. Back when the Celts still roamed the Highlands, I begged them to shed light on how I came to be since my power is unique.

You can guess how well that went. They’re a taciturn, entitled lot. I didn’t shed a single tear when they packed up and left Earth.

Other mages don’t care for me. They don’t trust my one-of-a-kind magic. On my more generous days I don’t blame them. For now, I run a tiny detective agency in the Scottish Highlands. Mortals are quick to hire me because I always solve their problems. Using magic is cheating, but they’ll never find out.

One fine afternoon, a Sidhe sought me out. His power surpassed mine by a factor of ten, so I was suspicious as hell, but he was too profanely gorgeous to turn away…

As usual, no one to blame but myself when my life skids off the rails.

Hands of Fate is the prequel to the Wayward Mage series by Ann Gimpel.

This was a wonderful glimpse into the world of Abril and Blake’s story. It’s short, but jammed packed with adventure. I read this before starting the Wayward Mage sereis. It was great to see Abril and Blake’s story start. It’s a good fast read that provides important background information.

Hands of Fate is a nice introduction to the characters and world. I enjoyed reading the prequel and looking forward to reading the series.

Rated: 3 Stars
