About the Book:
Morigan lives a quiet life as the handmaiden to a fatherly old sorcerer named Thackery. But when she crosses paths with Caenith, a not wholly mortal man, her world changes forever. Their meeting sparks long buried magical powers deep within Morigan. As she attempts to understand her newfound abilities, unbidden visions begin to plague her--visions that show a devastating madness descending on one of the Immortal Kings who rules the land.
With Morigan growing more powerful each day, the leaders of the realm soon realize that this young woman could hold the key to their destruction. Suddenly, Morigan finds herself beset by enemies, and she must master her mysterious gifts if she is to survive.

When I first saw the sign up for the blog tour of ‘Feast of Fates’ I was immediately interested in this book. I haven’t read a lot of Fantasy novels lately so I was really looking forward to start reading this book.
In ‘Feast of Fates’ we meet Morigan. Morigan is living an ordinary life, taking care of on old sorcerer. Her life is not exciting at all. But one day Morigan meets Caenith, and from that moment on their lives changes forever. Morigan finds out she has magical powers. And soon Morigan is trying to find out how her powers work, but when she also begins having visions she soon finds herself being hunted.
‘Feast of Fates’ was a great read. From the very first page I was hooked unto the pages. The story was fascinating, the characters were well described and there was a lot going on. This book was a romance story, a fantasy story and so much more. I really enjoyed every page of this book and didn’t want it to ever end.
Although this book had multiple point of views, something I normally find confusing, in this book it fitted perfectly. I really enjoyed reading about all these different characters.
The best part of this book was definitely the way Christian A. Brown wrote it. His writing style was just so good and it made you want to keep on reading. Throughout this book I really began to feel like I knew the characters. What also really worked for me was the glossary. If I forgot for a moment who or what something was I could look it up in the glossary. Perfect for people like me, who have a little trouble with all those names.
I think it’s amazing that ‘Feast of Fates’ is the authors his first book. This book felt like something that took many years of trying, and writing other stories.. but no.. This is his debut novel. I’m definitely in awe and really recommend ‘Feast of Fates’.
