The Gifts of Fate is a great read that held my fascination fast to the finish. Great plot, characters and ripping pace. This is fantastic story and a frenetic sci-fantasy you will read again and recommend! JMac
I actually read this book for the second time. Love the story, I found I got so many things from it this time that I had missed the first time around. Nice complex story with lots of plot turns. Definitely a page turner and the perfect summer sci-fi read..
Right from the beginning, David paints an amazing picture with the wonderful character, Shilpy. She stands out as a charismatic, intelligent and crafty woman with a unique and intriguing viewpoint. However, her problems began at an early age as she grew up in a strange magical cult far outside the norms of society. The story revolves around Shilpy attempting to live a quiet life after escaping from the cult. She exists in constant fear that the cult members will track her down and force her to return. Her only defense against the kidnappers resides in her ability to see the future. This is a wonderful premise, and it leads to amazing action whereby she is partially aware of the outcome before the story unfolds. David adds a further twist by placing the reader into the same unique position as Shilpy. She isn’t alwase aware of weather or not she is in a dream I liked reading The Gifts of Fate and I got a lot out of the story. David’s work stands out as unique and he has a talent for strong dialog. The intriguing story has a good universal appeal to a wide audience, and I recommended this book to two friends. I look forward to reading his next work.
This was a wonderful book and very different book then I read normally. I must say that I enjoy it and will be looking for more of this series to read and you should always open up to new kinds of books and enjoy them. I hope you give it a try and read it.
