Ruins of Fate: The Omni Towers, Prequel by Jamie Waters takes place after a world similar to Earth now is devastated by environmental disasters. Forced to sift through dangerous ruins just to survive, the main character, Skye, struggles to maintain her precarious place in a scavenging camp. As well, she must protect her young son who is considered a burden by the camp’s leader. During a particularly risky hunt for supplies, she and her partner Leo save a young girl, who not only might ruin Skye’s place in the camp but brings with her a mystery that might completely alter everyone’s future.
For me, Ruins of Fate by Jamie Waters delivered a fantastic adventure. I enjoy reading good dystopian stories, especially ones dealing with an Earth-type world with a touch of mystery and magic. This book is filled with compelling characters, danger, and more. Waters weaves together her ideas to create a driving plot that makes the book hard to put down. The more I read, the more I wanted to read. Ruins of Fate is the perfect set-up for a series that dystopian fans would love. The author is a talented writer and works her skills to build a world so real that it’s almost an unnerving prophecy of what the future might hold if Earth’s environment falls apart. However, at no point did I find it preachy, which would have weighed the story down. The journey of Skye and those around her has just the right amount of intimate detail and action.
