Fate is Kris' story. All of her life Kris has been precognitive, though in the past all of her visions focused on other people. For the first time, her visions are about her own future and it's not necessarily an enjoyable experience. Kris has a stalker/serial killer who is hot on her trail and looking to make her his latest "beauty". Enter the police, the FBI, and Nick (who is not only Kris' new neighbor but a guy from her college days).
Fate starts with a gripping prologue where Kris and her stalker meet face-to-face. It gruesome to say, but the serial stalker/killer scenes are the best part. The normal interactions between the characters come across as forced, it's like watching a show where you can tell the people are acting. It just doesn't feel natural. However, as stated, the serial killer parts are riveting. He's twisted!
The other aspect that made Fate a difficult read was the fact that there didn't seem to be a lot of editing. There were sections where the dialogue was mixed in with the narration and wasn't properly punctuation, it trips the reader up and causes you to backpedal through sentences to figure out where you mis-read something.
In the end, Fate was a quick and interesting read that got a lower rating because it's "technical difficulties" made it hard to become fully engaged in the story.
