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.

Feast of Fates has so much heft for a debut novel to a series. I was blown away by how intricate the story and characters were from the first page. I felt the need to slow down while I was reading, in order to really grasp the intentions and personalities of every interesting character.

Brown’s prose is beautiful, there is just no other way to explain it. Each paragraph is filled with poetry. There were times when I felt as if this took away from the story. I would get pulled into the beauty of a moment only to forget what the original thought was to begin with. Despite that, the story was thrilling. There was a mix of action packed, magical scenes and wonderful romance to keep me very happy.

My favorite thing about Feast of Fates was while this book can easily be classified as a fantasy novel, there are enough elements in the story that point to be being so much more. There are hints of a sci-fi element that makes the story seem mystical, if not more magical than it already is. There is a lot to pay attention to in this first book. Brown fully emerges the reader into this world with so much detail that even the next twist of the plot isn’t that much of a surprise.

Above all the characters of this book, especially the women are a force to be reckoned with. They are fierce, intelligent and quick on their feet to conquer anything their lives throw at them.
