Product Description

Product Description

Pet store owner Marc is a fate-seer, he sees the fate of people connected by the same destiny. What he sees is the truth, or should be. His best friend Keiran is a med student and a vampire, a combination that isn't as incompatible as it seems.
 
A fun night clubbing with their new boyfriends turns into disaster as they realize that their pasts do not line up with what Marc has seen. Their fate has been changed, putting them all in danger.
They now need to find out when their destinies went off track because fate-seers live by one rule:
 
When fate is changed death will ensue.
 
They only have one clue: a dear friend drowned on his birthday seven years ago. At the time it was ruled a suicide. Now, they're not so sure.
 
They're on a race against the clock to find out who changed their fate, before another one of them dies.

The second book in the series, Disturbed Connections, is now out! Follow the love story between a vampire and a werewolf, kept apart by the rules of the clan, coven and their past.

4.0 out of 5 stars A nice uniqueness to this one 14 Sep 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Complimentary Review Copy Provided by Author. This is a hard book to review for me. Mainly because it was so different to what I normally read. It had lots of stuff going on that made me think I was dropped in half way through a longer story. However that said it is a really good story that had me interested enough to keep going and things became much clearer the longer I read. Luckily that brought me to a very surprise ending that made it all worthwhile. Oh and one more thing, if you like unique versions on Vampires then you will find it here. I have book two to read which actually has a vampire as a main character and I am hoping it will follow this uniqueness too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful paranormal story 20 July 2013
By Kimbermcfar - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed this story, although I did feel a bit lost at first. This is the first book in a series, but sometimes I did feel like I'd missed a book. I felt a bit lost. Luckily as the book went along I managed to get caught up. I am looking forward to more books ,112 pages for 99 cents good value, and a HEA for the characters in the book,not easy but it does happen!

4.0 out of 5 stars Not your typical Vampire story 10 July 2013
By 1bookloversopinion - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Marc owns a pet shop and needs help with his store. His cat Isis leads him to a kitten in an alley that has befriended Galen. Little does he know that this accidental meeting is anything but an accident. Galen ends up being Marc's new employee and as much as he is trying to keep everything professional things end up being more. Marc is what is known as a seer and he can see the future.
Marc's best friend Kieran is being followed by an unknown presence. He finally decides to confront this presence and meets Devlan a stalker vampire. These 2 end up having a tremendously torrid love affair.
When you put all four of these guys together Marc's premonitions end up being more than he can handle. He's not sure if these visions are true or false. He's beginning to wonder if Galen's past is someone else's past or if he is truly the person he believes he is. People may die if things are not set right. Did everyone meet for a reason or is this an accidental life? Is everyone who they expect them to be or is everyone living a lie? This book will take you to many places and keep you guessing about how things will turn out. The author does a great job at tying everything together at the end for a surprise ending. The characters are engaging and likable. It gives a unique spin on the typical vampire stories.
Truly looking forward to more from this author
3.0 out of 5 stars Paranormal mystery 8 Mar 2014
By Becky C - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Trish's review: Marc is the owner of a small pet shop, and is also a Seer. He finds a young homeless man crouching in an alley, and offers him a job. Galen seems strangely familiar, and Marc is determined to keep their relationship strictly professional. Galen refuses to let Marc push him away, even though there’s a question about Galen’s past. Kieran, a medical student and Marc’s best friend, has a small problem. A stalker has been following him for quite a while. One night he confronts the man, and finds that Devlan, a handsome vampire, is too intriguing to resist, but the vampire isn’t who he appears to be. When the four men meet up for a night out, everything starts to fall apart. Marc’s visions of the future have turned out to be wrong, and all signs point to an autumn night two years ago when death takes someone who shouldn’t have died. Time is running out, and they need to find out what happened to change their fates before it’s too late.

Disturbed Fate by Kia Zi Shiru is a part of Otherkin Spirits, a series set in a world of werewolves, seers, vampires both psychic and sanguine (blood), and where magic is real. Each book is a standalone, and you don’t have to read them in any particular order. This is a character driven story, and the characters are just like anyone you meet on the street, but also have their own set of unique problems dealing with the paranormal side of their lives. The author’s writing style is original, crisp, and clean, but the plot flow is disjointed, and jumps from one event to the next with no real rhyme or reason. The backstory is sketchy, and you get any real sense of what’s really happening and why. I never really connected with any of the characters, but if you enjoy a book that has mystery, the paranormal, and a good whodunit, then check out this tale for yourself.
4.0 out of 5 stars A very enjoyable read 30 Oct 2013
By Shirley Quinones - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Marc is able to see the future and has been friends with Kieran, a vampire, since they trained together. Although Kieran has been helping out Marc at the store the truth is that he needs permanent help. In comes Galen, a shy, young man he stumbles into on the street. Recognizing that Galen seems in need of help and that he is probably something more than what he appears, Marc decides to offer him a job. Little does he expect that his attraction to Galen and the connection they share would disrupt Marc and Kieran's world.

Kieran knows that Devlan is trouble, but he can't help himself. He is drawn to him in ways he can't explain, but when lies by omission, betrayal and secrets start to reveal themselves, Kieran has to face the ugly truth - Devlan is not who he portrays himself to be. However, they all must work together to right the wrong that could affect their lives one way or another.

This was an interesting story to get into. At first, I was a bit hesitant since it started slow and I didn't know which direction it was going to go. I was especially hesitant with the appearance of Kieran. Don't get me wrong, he was a great addition to the story, but the switch of POV from Marc to Kieran threw me off and it wasn't after a couple of chapters in that I was able to get the hang of it.

I loved the concept behind the story. I think it was original and well-executed. The paranormal aspects of the story, the mystery of the character's connection and the romances that developed coupled with the author's trademark prose flowed seamlessly with the characters and their personalities. Marc and Galen's story could not be told without throwing Kieran's story into the mix and Kia Zi Shiru did a great job bringing it all together to make it work.

Marc was a great character to get to know. He was smart, sweet and considerate. He had everyone's best interests in mind, even at the expense of his own and I admired him for that. His easy-going manner and charm was a treat to read and his interactions with the other characters revealed a lot about his true self. Galen was also great, but it wasn't until the second half of the book that I was able to connect with him fully.

I enjoyed how Marc and Galen were brought together slowly. Their connection was immediate, but its development grew as the story progressed. In the end, I was so emotionally invested in them being a couple that when they finally came together I was grinning from ear to ear. Their interactions were both sweet and frustrating. At times I wanted to smack them upside the head for taking it so slow and at others I wanted to comfort them and tell them it would all work out.

Although Kieran's presence threw me off at first, I soon came to appreciate what he brought to the story. He was passionate and loyal to a fault. He was strong-minded and not easily fooled and it was his loyalty and strength of character that led me to wish he could find his HEA. I enjoyed his interactions with other characters and how he dealt with Devlan and the mess he brought with his presence. I want to know more about Kieran and Cole's story, especially after witnessing Marc vision. *hint, hint* ;-)

Disturbed Fate is the first book in the Otherkin Spirits series and a very good start at that. Kia Zi Shiru managed to deliver a wonderful combination of great characters backed by an interesting concept with a bit of angst and a dash of heat to round it all up. All in all, a very enjoyable read.

I received this title from the author in exchange of my honest opinion.
