CHARACTERS, PLOTTING, DEVELOPMENT:
Primarily a fantasy for teens and young adults, as a senior I found I enjoyed this clean intriguing novel. Author Tamara Hart Heiner included twists and turns in this well crafted novel. Keeping the pace steady and smooth, the readers led from one revelation to another. With revelations I did not see coming, Heiner keeps the tension and intrigue at high peak. My mouth fell open when Heiner revealed the villain’s identity. What a surprise!
Furthermore, Heiner crafted well-developed characters and her skill in portraying teen years, well crafted and realistic. As well as, showing in-depth the worry and angst Jayne carries because of her talent/gift. Repressed by her talent/gift/curse, afraid to look into anyone eyes after she smells lemons, Jayne carries a terrible weight with her daily. Heiner shows Jayne, Dana, and Aaron dealing with everyday teen issues such as: girlfriends, boyfriends, school, and maturing towards adulthood. By the end of Heiner’s book, will Jayne grow into a confident young woman? Will she come to terms with her talent? Can she accept her fate? Sorry, you will have to read the novel to find out.
Finally, in concluding my teen and young adult fantasy novel review of Inevitable Goddess Of Fate, I found an easy to read story-line. Also, this novel has well-developed characters and a premise which was intriguing and original. Containing no sex, Heiner easily conveys the emotions we all feel as teenagers with our first love.
