Touching Fate by Brenda Drake [Book Review]

cover Touching Fate by Brenda Drake

Date Published: January 1, 2015 and re published on October 12, 2015 by Entangled Teen Crave

Genre: Young Adult | Romance | Fantasy


Aster Layne believes in physics, not psychics. A tarot card reading on the Ocean City Boardwalk should have been a ridiculous, just-for-fun thing. It wasn’t. Aster discovers she has a very unscientific gift—with a simple touch of the cards, she can change a person’s fate.

Reese Van Buren is cursed. Like the kind of old-school, centuries-old curse that runs in royal families. Every firstborn son is doomed to die on his eighteenth birthday—and Reese’s is coming up fast. Bummer. He tries to distract himself from his inevitable death…only to find the one person who can save him.

Aster doesn’t know that the hot Dutch guy she’s just met needs her help–or that he’s about to die.

But worst of all…she doesn’t know that her new gift comes with dark, dark consequences that can harm everyone she loves.


“I would like to thank Brenda Drake for sending me a Review Copy of this book. I reviewed it honestly just liked I promised.”

The plot is really interesting, I never got a chance to read books with fortune telling as a theme. When I first laid my eyes on a picture of this book, I took the chance of requesting and luckily it was granted, When the book arrived after a month I was in awe what I got. It has a book mark not just one but two not to mention the mask charm attached on Touching Fate’s bookmark. What really made me feel s grateful was the message written in the book. I wanted to cry because of joy. It really touched my heart. I REALLY LOVE BRENDA DRAKE ❤ ❤ ❤


The message written for me ❤


A closer look at the mask charm. Isn’t cool?


The book is a fun read. I love the plot and the content justified it so much. I got hooked, read it the whole day at work and finished it at home. I wanted to know more about the history of the Fate Changers, Van Buren Families, and the Readers. What I read about the three kinds of people are just glances and brief information about them. I wanted to know more what’s inside the hat box, the content or story that each diary entry holds. If there won’t be a sequel about that I would fangirl all day long to have them in a novella or whatever you call it. Dedicated only to them. ❤

Sometimes first books sucks because of the cliff hangers that kills us more when sequels are to be released in a long time. This book is not really cliff hanger. It ended well and we all know something will continued in the next book. I never regret taking my chance requesting for a review copy of this. I’m really glad I did. I was introduced to a brand new world that I never thought I would love. This deserves 5 glowing tarot cards! (Although it’s in a star form, forgive me.) 😀
