1 New York Times bestselling author Kendare Blake is back with an epic duology starter that follows a young woman training to join a fabled order as she attempts to lead a hero to his critical first victory. A must-read for fans of Alexandra Bracken and Victoria Aveyard. 
Aristene are an order of mythical female warriors. Though heroes might be immortalized in legends, it’s the Aristene who guide their paths to victory. They are the Heromakers.

Raised by the order after being orphaned, Reed grew up surrounded by her future sisters-in-arms and the incredible stories of their quests. She’s been counting the days until her initiation, and now one final test stands in her way: shepherding her first hero to glory on the battlefield. Succeed, and her place in the order is secured. Fail, and she’ll be cast out of the only home she’s ever known. 

But Reed didn’t count on Hestion, her assigned hero, being both infuriating and intriguing. When their strategic alliance turns into something more, it forces Reed to question the cost of becoming an Aristene. As battle looms and fate hangs in the balance, Reed must make an impossible choice: her hero or her order.

What I liked:
Champion of Fate tells the story of Reed, an Aristene who has a bitey horse and who is destined to make a hero no matter how much she might doubt that. Aristene are mythical female warriors, part of a legendary order. Though heroes might be immortalized in stories, the Aristene guides them to victory. They are the Heromakers. As the story unfolds and Reed begins to understand and know more about Hestion, her destined hero, the more she struggles with her path.
Final Verdict:
Champion of Fate is part of a two-part story that will share with you the path Reed takes as she navigates the course she accepts. She questions her place, she asks her quest to make Hestion a hero, and she questions what is in her heart. Champion of Fate has a diverse set of characters and fantastic world-building.
