A war rages on between vampires, werewolves, angels, and demons… Arial is now at the center of it all.

Shortly after learning of the existence of these supernatural beings, Arial discovers her fated role in bringing about peace between the factions.

That peace is contingent upon four possessive princes. All soon learn that there is much more at stake than the ancient war. As each man threatens to stake his claim to Arial as his true mate, will they tear her apart and can they keep her safe and protect her from threats that are close to home?

 

Review:  The fun thing about the paranormal genre is the possibilities are limited only by your imagination.

In Thrust of Fate, author Amy Crown demonstrates a fertile imagination with a young virgin who is supposed to be the vessel of peace for not one, but four different races.

Arial has no idea what awaits her when she receives an official summons. She finds herself caught up between four future leaders of their races: a vampire, a demon, an angel and a werewolf. Because this is a work of fiction, it is completely possible that a magic orb can make Arial forget about interactions with anyone other than her current partner.

As a short spicy read, the story certainly accomplishes the goal of delivering plenty of hot erotic interaction. However, if you take that away, there’s not a lot of substance left. The four males are quite interesting individually; collectively they are even better. This could easily have been developed into a much longer and involved story.

The title itself takes on new meaning as the reader gets deeper into the story. In spite of the leeway the author has within the genre, there’s still an expectation of a reasonably well-developed storyline and appealing characters. I would have preferred Arial to have more of a backbone rather than appearing somewhat bland.

It’s a quick read, but maybe a bit more development to shatter the paranormal stereotypes would have been nice.
