Centuries have passed since the Fey conquered Earth, forcing mankind and gods alike to flee to the sky city Olympus. Forgotten gods walk amongst man, lost and powerless. Little do they suspect a second Fey war looms, and an unlikely duo will set in motion the gears of fate. Zak Walker is a fringe rat living in the slums who would do anything to protect his sister, Alice. His neglectful father threatens to consign him to a life away from home on an airship, but he yearns for his life to mean something more than drudgery. Princess Seneca Rose is the last surviving member of the Seelie royals. They tried to establish peace with mankind, but fell to the forces of Queen Mob and the Unseelie Court. Fleeing for her life, Seneca arrives on Olympus in hopes of uniting the forgotten gods against the oncoming Fey. Zak couldn’t care less about the fate of Olympus, until faeries kidnap Alice. He doesn’t believe Seneca’s stories of faeries or gods, but soon has no choice but to accept their lives are intertwined. All his life, he’s dreamed of something more. If he cannot face the dangers that await down on Earth, the gods, mankind, and his sister Alice are all doomed.

GEARS OF FATE has elements of fantasy, mythology, and steampunk all weaved together. When Seneca, the Seelie Princess, lands on his doorstep, Zak thinks she's crazy. She speaks of Fey and other mythical things that catches has his sister's interest. Alice is young, but doesn't talk and Zak is unsure about Seneca's presence.

Seneca is on the run from her fiance Puck who wants the Unseelie to take over (the bad Fey). When she lands on Zak's doorstep, she wasn't planning on returning to Fey realm so soon, but she's the key to finding Alice. Trouble seems to follow Seneca wherever she goes and Zak finds himself in plenty of hard situations.

I loved the mythology within this book and the Fey are always interesting. I love the name Puck too. Seneca's character had to be my favorite because she is quirky and reminds me of Luna Lovegood from the Harry Potter series.


Final Verdict: This was an interesting read with a lot of action. I loved how the different elements all worked together and would recommend this to fans of fantasy, mythology, and steampunk.
