Inherent Fate by Geanna Culbertson

Rating: 5 out of 5.

The Crisanta Knight series continues to be so much fun! In this third book in the series, Crisanta is still on her journey to find The Author. Crisanta wants to get her story changed, and The Author is the only person that can do that.

Inherent Fate picks up right where book 2 left off. Cristana is stuck in the genie’s lamp with Daniel, and they don’t know how to get out. They do of course, or the book would have been very short! Once out, they must get to the cave to get the third item they have been searching for. I enjoyed that Daniel and Crisanta have some time alone during this book. They are separated from the rest of the group, and I liked seeing their dynamic energy together. I’m very much rooting for the two of them to get together in the end!

Crisanta is a girl that I can’t help but love. Her character is built with such strength, but she’s also a bit flawed, which leaves room for growth. I like that she’s willing to apologize when her decisions were wrong and that she values her friendships so much.

There are some pretty bad characters in this series, and they absolutely showed themselves in book three! I love the spin that Geanna Culbertson adds to her characters. Goldilocks was one that surprised me, and I loved who she was in this book. Every time I meet a new character as I progressed through the book, I loved how the origin of the fairytale character is there, but Culbertson has added so much life to them!

This whole series begins with Crisanta wanting to have the power to write her own story instead of following what The Author has planned for her. I just love this theme, and I think it’s a great reminder that we have control over our choices and lives. I’ve enjoyed being on this journey with Crisanta, and I can’t wait to see what happens next!

Overall, I loved this book! The characters are easy to love (or hate), and I found the adventures to be exciting and imaginative!

To Read or Not To Read:

I would recommend Inherent Fate to readers that enjoy a YA fantasy/retelling story filled with adventure and magic!

If you breathe a word of what we’ve discussed here to the greater public—a single person outside of that little mischievous group you’ve been traveling with—then I can’t be held responsible for what terrible, unspeakable things happen to them.

Separated from their friends, Daniel and Crisanta have to work together to traverse the kingdom of Alderon and evade the antagonists who are trying to destroy them. Moreover, they must do so while figuring out whether or not they can truly be friends.

With their mission drawing to a close, Crisanta’s magical powers are about to be revealed. But among these great truths, she is about to discover a strength that will be infinitely more powerful.
