Hand of Fate Series by Sharon Joss

by | Jan 22, 2018

Sharon Joss’s Hand of Fate series includes: Destiny Blues Legacy Soul Chaos Karma Mystic Jive Cosmic Groove I tend to say that Urban Fantasy is a hit-or-miss subgenre for me. But, when I really think about it, I either really, really love the book, or I simply hate it. And I tend to really, really love Urban Fantasy more than I hate it. So, maybe it would be more accurate to say that certain Urban Fantasy AUTHORS are hit-or-miss for me. Over the years, however, I’ve learned that the Urban Fantasy that I love the most are ones where the main character is a detective of some sort. Even better if there’s a great conspiracy that spools out over several books. See: Dresden Files by Jim Butcher or The Hallows by Kim Harrison. So, in that regard, Hand of Fate did not disappoint in the slightest. I was immediately pulled into the series and the next thing I knew, I was finishing the fourth book at midnight. Which is when I got mad. It’s a good sign when I get angry with an author because they did something horrible to a character that I love. It means I’m emotionally invested, which is rather a big deal for me, since I tend not do emotionally invest in characters. (Can you hear the laughter from the peanut gallery?) But this time was especially egregious. I threw things. I yelled. My husband asked if I lost my mind and would be able to fall asleep. I did, eventually. And I read the fifth book in a couple hours the next day because I had to know that she made it right. She did well enough I don’t want to email Joss with “What were you thinking!?!?” emails anymore. But I’m still eager for the next book to be out. Why? Because Joss has great characters, a beautiful setting, good plot twists, and lots more to offer. Though, to be fair, she’s not as mean to her characters as Butcher is. This series will become an auto-buy for me. All five of the first books in the Hand of Fate series get 5/5 stars from me.

I only post reviews for books I am not connected with. If I beta read or edited the book, or work as a virtual assistant for the author, I do not post a review. However, authors occasionally send me books to review.

Projected* schedule for Book Reviews for 2018:

1st Monday: Fantasy or Sci-Fi (what I read the most)
2nd Monday: Random book (could be anything, but expect a lot of mysteries)
3rd Monday: Romance (might have sex, but will not be any relationship that is not MF)
4th Monday: Non-Fiction (inspirational, biographies, instructional)

*Due to LIFE being a factor in my life, this schedule might not actually happen.
