Book Blurb:Seeking Fate (The Fated #3) by Brenda Drake
Publication Date: September 3, 2018
Publisher: Entangled Teen Crave
Fate changer Daisy Layne is nervous about searching Europe for a firstborn son doomed to die on his eighteenth birthday. But she’s the only one who can save him. No pressure or anything. She needs the help of guide Andrei Vasile, who she’s been talking to online for two years. Still, meeting him in person…that’s a whole different story.
Andrei is determined to keep Daisy safe, even if touching her could kill him. At least, that’s what his family has told him about fate changers like Daisy. She’s strong and beautiful, and it’s his job to keep her alive. Unfortunately, what she doesn’t know could kill her.
Save a life. End a curse. And never, ever get too close…
“What does he look like?” Iris asked, her eyes moving over the many drivers holding signs with names printed on them and passengers sitting on cubes sticking out of the structure for seats.
“Tall, lanky…total nerd-type.” And no one resembled that description in the area.
The infinity scar on her wrist throbbed. It only did that when someone around her had the fate of death. Fate changers received the brand when bonding with their tarot cards. She pushed her beaded bracelets aside and rubbed at it. Looking around, a sadness settled over her like a thick fog darkening the beach back home.
She scanned the area, wondering who was on the cusp of dying. Was it the seventysomething couple huddled in front of the train-schedule display or the man in his thirties eating an overstuffed sandwich or a member of the five middle-aged women by the enormous Rubik’s Cube completely looking and acting like tourists? It was hard to tell. And since she couldn’t do anything about it, couldn’t ask to check everyone’s fate, she pushed her bracelets back down and tried to ignore the feeling.
“I’m not sure what he looks like now,” Daisy continued. The feeling wasn’t going away. People fated to die crossed her path often. When there was no one else around, she’d do something. But here? In a busy terminal? Not a chance.
“What?” Iris shot her a puzzled look. “You’ve never seen a selfie or something? He’s on Snapchat, right?”
“He never posts on it. I’ve only seen older photos of him—” If she had brakes on her shoes, they would’ve screeched when she spotted her name on one of the many signs and suddenly stopped.
“Is that him?” Obviously, Iris had seen it, too. The completely hot guy, who made up every girl’s fantasy of the perfect European male, holding a white cardboard sign with her last name misspelled on it. Tall and muscled with dark, wavy hair, he stood there with all the confidence that Daisy lacked.
“Um…yes?” Daisy said.
Iris looked over at her. “Yeah, you should be speechless. We get to hang out with that for twelve days. Come on. It’s creepy to stare too long.” She carted her suitcase over to him.
Daisy snapped out of her daze and rushed after Iris.

Brenda Drake grew up the youngest of three children, an Air Force brat, and the continual new kid at school. Her fondest memories growing up is of her eccentric, Irish grandmother's animated tales, which gave her a strong love for storytelling. With kids of all ages populating Brenda's world, it was only fitting that she would choose to write stories with a bend toward the fantastical for both younger readers and the young at heart. And because she married her prince charming, there's always a romance warming the pages. Her favorite books are The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis, Kings Row by Henry Bellamann, and Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins. When she's not writing, she hosts workshops and contests for writers such as Pitch Wars and Pitch Madness on her blog, and holds Twitter pitch parties on the hashtag, #PitMad. In her free time, Brenda enjoys hanging out with her family, haunting libraries, bookstores, and coffee shops, or just reading someplace quiet and not at all exotic (much to her disappointment).
