Author Biography

Brian has dreamt of being an author since his early days of high school. He used to sit in the school library whenever he had the chance, soaking up as many tales from Greek Mythology as he could get his hands on; fascinated by the stories of gods and heroes. After stumbling upon the Percy Jackson series in his school’s library, he began reading at a feverish pace and never looked back. Fate Weaver marks his debut as an author, with the promise of many more books to come.

Reviewed by Edilyn Trinidad for Readers' Favorite

Brian Tripp’s Fate Weaver is a fantastic story about three young heroes whose destinies seemed intertwined. Ashe, Quinn, and Levy all come from different backgrounds and have their own personal struggles. With astonishing powers and belief in a cause that they’re willing to bet their lives on, they embarked on a perilous adventure to help humanity’s fight for survival against foes too terrifying to imagine. Brian Tripp was able to make the already interesting topic of mythology even more intriguing. The development of the three heroes in this tale is an amazing read! Fate Weaver is a wonderful story about friendship, sacrifice, a sense of duty and so much more that will capture the imagination. This is a page-turner and a must-read for all fantasy and mythology enthusiasts.

I am a huge mythology fan and Brian Tripp’s Fate Weaver has been a delightful read. I love the complexity of Ashe, Quinn, and Levy’s characters. The world they live in is fantastic and yet it’s easy to imagine living amongst people with such amazing capabilities. Each chapter enticed me to read on and kept me guessing until the very end. It was exciting to see how the three heroes grow and how their complicated relationships develop throughout the story. There are heart-stopping and epic fight scenes worthy of any Hollywood movie! I hope there’s another book after this because I would love to know what happens next to the three protagonists in this story. I am certain Brian Tripp has more surprises up his sleeves that will shock even the most seasoned fantasy reader.

In Fate Weaver by Brian Tripp, Levy, Quinn, and Ashe have spent most of their lives being trained to fight in ways that complement their individual personalities. Alone, they are skilled fighters who could easily defeat most monsters that would dare leave the shadows to face them. Together, this trio is magnificent and almost unstoppable. However, the battle they have been trained for will take more than simple mortal fighting. They will need the power of the Gods and Goddesses to win the war that is coming. Will they pass the tests and be granted the power that they need? Will the power be too great for them to deny? Will their unique traits and abilities cause them to be traitors of the realms or heroes in battle? Will the war find humanity still alive or is there someone behind the scenes orchestrating a certain outcome?

Fate Weaver by Brian Tripp kicks off as a joyride through the realms as Quinn, Ashe, and Levy face formidable creatures that could sentence humanity to death. The details of the characters as they face their opponents, answer questions, and continue their journey is amazing. I love the way Tripp defines each person with their own backstory so well that the reader feels themselves being pulled along with them. Gods, Goddesses, and heroes going through the motions of the epic war over who will maintain control of Earth will keep the reader turning pages to see what happens next. I recommend Fate Weaver to adults and young adults that love a great story full of adventure and excitement.

It is left to three heroes to save the world, but only one of them will sit on the throne. A weapon that could help claim the throne and save the world from the evil gods and goddesses who wish to oppress all is hidden deep in the mountains. Though the three trained warriors had been warned by the villagers that the mountains are crawling with monsters, it does not stop them from forging ahead and trying to claim the powerful weapon for themselves. However, they don't find it easy as each of the heroes faces life-threatening tests that many have tried and lost their lives taking. Do they have what it takes to face the gods, and who will sit on the throne? Brian Tripp takes readers into a world of gods, monsters, and superhumans in Fate Weaver.

Get ready for battles between heroes who have personal issues to resolve and godlike, otherworldly abilities: enhanced speed and endurance, fire controlling, and multidimensional teleportation. Fate Weaver mixes themes of romance, jealousy, friendship, valor, sacrifice, and power to create an enticing and unpredictable storyline. The characters are relatable and easy to get familiar with, and the many plot twists make the story feel like a fun puzzle to solve. For a debut novel by Brian Tripp, it gets many things right but could improve on a few things, like how the worldbuilding needs to be clearer and less complicated. Still, I enjoyed the other aspects of the book. Readers who love fantasy and Greek mythology should definitely consider reading Fate Weaver.

In Fate Weaver by Brian Tripp, Master Talius had been responsible for sending many soldiers to war to fight for mankind. Talius has been in full command of the Citadel for many years. Legend has it that whoever controls the powerful tower and claims the throne inside will rule the world in whatever way they please. The tower appears in the mortal realm when mankind is at its weakest and at the mercy of hordes of monsters. But three children, Ashe, Levy, and Quinn, have been in training for many years to enter Hestia’s realm and claim the throne for humanity. They set out on their mission to find the cavern deep in the Arholm Peaks where the tower is hidden. They must face not only the monsters who now surround the mountains but difficult moral dilemmas. Those who have taken this path before have never returned. When they are staring defeat in the face, one child discovers an ancient and powerful mask that has the ability to overcome the forces against them. The choices they each make will have their own consequences which they will have to live with.

The action begins almost immediately and is carried on throughout Fate Weaver. The plot is a good balance of action and the relationship dynamics between the three leading characters, Ashe, Levy, and Quinn. I loved the obstacles and ethical dilemmas the children faced and this highlighted their moral compass perfectly. There are great battle scenes that are really brought to life by Brian Tripp's amazing ability for descriptive narrative. I especially loved the final battle; I was literally on the edge of my seat. The whole concept of the plot was around choices and moral dilemmas. To make the right choice for the long term while in the short term, someone may suffer. As the children embark on their mission there is also a comparison to achieving any goal. You may want to achieve something in your life but are you willing to put in the effort to reach success. I loved the characters of Mallory and Ashe; they were incredibly strong and formidable female characters. There is a shocking twist towards the end and the final sentence really left me wanting to read the second installment in this series.

Fate Weaver by Brian Tripp is the first novel in the Wrath of Olympus series. This young adult novel follows Levy, Ashe, and Quinn as they fight with everything they have to protect their world from monsters and an imbalance of power. Legend has it that a tower appears every thousand years, and whoever claims the throne inside the tower gets immense power. With the gods nowhere to be found, humanity is left to fend for themselves. With the monsters roaming free and viciously gunning towards the tower, humanity’s only hope depends upon Ashe, Quinn, and Levy. The three of them need to find the tower, claim the throne, and become the heroes that the people so desperately need them to be. However, they need to show immense strength, stability of character, and trust in each other if they want to survive. Can they do it?

The fast pace, perfect character development, and original plot made Fate Weaver stand out for me. There is no shortage of action in the story, and there is no shortage of growth as well. Brian Tripp paces everything just right to make sure the reader never loses interest in the story or the characters. Ashe, Quinn, and Levy make a great team. The three of them understand each other, they rely on each other and support each other. While many young adult novels feature a trio of main leads, not many can convey the camaraderie that these three do. The descriptions are magical in this story and make the reading experience so much better. The imagery is fantastic and just so realistic that I felt like I was transported to where these three were. I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys strong characters and a brilliant plot.
