From: my friend, who just happens to be the author - Jason! Thank You!!
Synopsis: Every choice is played out in a world unto itself, and so the only Nathan who needs to be saved is the only one who can’t be.
A supernatural spirit holds all of these worlds together, bending fate from her place outside of time. When eighteen-year-old Nathan Wheeler sacrifices himself to provide for his orphaned sister, this entrancing spirit goes back to when the death of his mother forced him to quit college and attempts to make his life better before his inevitable death.
But for all she knows about the future, assuming human form is not as easy as she thought it would be, and getting close to Nathan comes with consequences she could never expect.
Review: 5 Stars – Author Jason Letts has taken fate to an all new level with the first book in his new trilogy – Inevitable. It’s easy to find yourself lost within the pages as Letts paints a picture of selflessness at the hands of one eighteen year old boy.
The first chapter of the book is a doozy. I had to take a couple of deep breaths after reading it. It shows us vividly the end of the story and the fate of our main character Nathan. He’s caught in a selfless act that makes the “spirit” of fate for the whole universe take notice. She is moved by the choice Nathan makes and vows to go back and make his last year of life better.
We learn more about Nathan from the spirits point of view and see just how hard of a life Nathan has. Sadly he’s lost his mother to a horrible disease and has to take over the household, including helping raise his younger sister - Cammie. With hard times ahead of him this spirit vows to make Nathans life better. He moves back home, giving up college and takes a job working any place that would hire him. He ends up at a cement factory, with pay that makes it hard to make ends meet. He has only thoughts of his sister’s future and it’s based on this alone that he chooses to make such an overwhelming sacrifice.
So, fate knows she can help make the last year better for him… goes back and somewhat barges into his life. She shows up and names herself Apoxy – crazy I know – and takes Nathan away from his life and goes out of her way to give him a thrilling, happy and crazily adventurous - unbeknownst to him – last year.
With his families’ money troubles and Apoxy’s random appearances and disappearances Nathan’s life isn’t any better and she finds herself failing and doesn’t seem to understand why. She is drawn more to Nathan and is unable to figure out what’s not only happening to Nathan, but also what’s happening to her. She’s not use to the human body she inhibits or the human emotions she’s feeling.
Both Nathan and Apoxy are great characters. Each is different and the further I read the more I could see their lives weaving together. The romance between the two was fascinating being that the book is written from Apoxy’s view and how unknown everything is, even the human emotion such as love. Her life as a human has some twists and turns along the way that even she couldn’t see coming.
With Nathan’s fate ahead of him, I was on pins and needles to see how Apoxy and Cammie might come together to change his mind or if they could change that horrible day that was ahead of him. The ending was extremely shocking and threw me, and that last line that will leave readers more than ready for the next book.
All in All any reader will find much to love about Inevitable. With a strong story, real characters and romance, readers looking for a different take on a paranormal story should give this book a read. The next book in the trilogy – Impossible is due out sometime later this year.
