Born and raised on a slaver’s ship, Amalia is a survivor of a race believed to have been extinguished in a planetary disaster. For three generations, her family has been the prized property of Gruuk. In the next few days, she will be forced to participate in her master’s psi talent breeding program. Escaping and attending the Fastening ceremony on Xelix Prime to find a mate and protector is her only hope.
Like most Xelixian males, cousins Khel and Lhor are Tainted. They are shunned by their own people because of the disease that mars their bodies and ensures a painful early death. It can only be reversed by mating. Xelixian females are rare. Pearls, the females that produce the curative chemical, are even more so. The chances of finding two Pearls, of any species, willing to accept heavily Tainted males, are virtually non-existent. Despite their status and wealth, the cousins are running out of time.
Between Gruuk’s dogged pursuit, deadly rivalries, assassins and corrupt nobles, can they keep Amalia safe or will their respective feelings for her tear them apart?
This MFM novel is a constant toe-curling, action-packed thriller, and the first book in the Veredian Chronicles series. It is a standalone with no cliffhanger.
My Rating: 5 stars
Okay, I am that type of blogger who reads the weirdest books and always read all kinds of books. When I saw Escaping Fate's blurb, I knew I had to read it. It had such an enticing storyline with a weird sci-fi vibe that definitely caught my eye. I only read one sci-fi and no book had surpassed that but I found myself so surprised that I found another sci-fi/alien that delivered the goods. Escaping Fate was such an interesting and explosive sci-fi book that had me so excited to point that I was going crazy.
Escaping Fate was a book that pulled me in. There was just something so special about it that totally made me pay attention. I was reading something very different and unique and it definitely sated my reading taste buds. Riveting. Explosive. Sexy. Drama. Angst. Escaping Fate was a beautiful sci-fi romance that left me begging for more. Escaping Fate was a book packed with enough action that thrilled me. I was transported to another planet while I reading this book. I felt I was in he alien and experiencing their lives. It is because of the writing. The writing was so vivid that I swear I was living the reality of the aliens. I actually thought I was one of them. It reminded me of Star Wars but more edgier,more darker and more sexier that caused a burning hole in my kindle. This book should come with hazard. Warning, this book will make you hot all over. Hahaha. I commend Regine Abel for giving me a book I craved so much for. It was a definite sci-fi beauty that transfixed me.
Meet Amalia, a Veredian woman with such a feisty nature and a survivor and Khel and Lhor, two tainted Xelixian males looking for two Pearls to cure their Taint, together they were such a complicated couple yet had enough drama and angst that brought me to the edge. I was fixated on their relationship. I could not get enough of it. Their relationship was toe curling and enough heat to cause a fire. I loved their struggle as a unit and it was a side that I liked.Not every trio has roses. No there is jealousy and resentment and Regine Abel executed that perfectly. I loved Amalia. She was fierce, strong, loving and caring. Khel was dominant but damn he made me hot. Lhor was different. He was more vulnerable. He cared far more and I absolutely adored him. There are a unit to be reckoned with.
Well, Escaping Fate was amazing. I enjoyed so much that I am going to stalk the author. I have my conspiracy theories and I cannot wait until they are solved. Looking to the next book in the series. It has piqued my curiosity.
