Book Review: The Seer’s Fate by Christine Amsden


She can see the future, but she can’t escape it…

Danielle Hastings has lived countless possible futures, and getting involved with Adam Scot always ends in heartbreak. The gift of foresight has led her to one solid conclusion: avoid Adam at all costs. But when she sees a tornado tearing through downtown Eagle Rock – and Adam helping her save dozens of lives – she knows she has no choice.

Adam lives a charmed life; thanks to his powerful gift of charisma, everyone has a hard time saying no to him. Everyone, that is, except Danielle. Adam is determined to break through her shell…until he finds out the real reason she’s avoiding him. But by the time he realizes there’s no hope for a future for them, he’s in too deep to back out.

It seems there’s only one question the fates haven’t already answered: Will he break her heart, or will she break his?




My Review

I chose to read this book after receiving a free copy. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.

One of my favorite series is the Cassie Scot series which takes place in Eagle Rock. Adam Scot is a little brother of Cassie’s and his gift is charisma. He always gets what he wants just by turning on the charm. Danielle Hastings is a seer and she knows that there is an attraction between her and Adam. She also knows that Adam will hurt her in the future. She has followed many different paths and every one has shown him hurting her. Because of that, she knows that she should stay away from him, but can she?

Danielle spends many hours looking into the future and sometimes she doesn’t know if some things are memories or things she’s seen in the future. Maybe she’s spending too much time in the future and not enough time living in the present. 

Even though this is a novella, Danielle’s character is well developed. I enjoyed reading The Seer’s Fate while I’m waiting for the next full length novel in the series.
