Reviewed by Rabia Tanveer for Readers' Favorite

Art of Destiny is the second novel in The Elite Way series by Vincent Bowe. Richard, Rijo, Kao, and Jake are back, and this time, their task is more complex than they anticipated. Now that they are trained warriors, the Council of Waywar’s Gate makes them aware of a danger that can destroy civilizations if not stopped in time, and the Elites are the first target. With these warriors out of the way, it makes eliminating the rest of humanity much easier. But Rijo, Kao, Jake, and Richard are the Elites for a reason. All they have to do is find a magical tree in a deadly forest and determine the identity of their new enemy. However, it is not easy. They are still getting used to their powers, and if they aren’t careful, millions of people are going to die.

Guardians of the Galaxy meets Fight Club is the perfect way to describe Art of Destiny. Containing symmetry and rhythm, it is a brilliant and entertaining story. Each of the Elite characters has a fascinating backstory. The four men work together as a team (even if they tease each other, which is a lot of fun). Out of the four members, Kao is my favorite. He is a little hesitant but very charming. The portrayal of The Land of Degenerates creates vivid images and makes it easy to imagine the environment and situations in the story. Vincent Bowe keeps a perfect balance between action, adventure, and fantasy. In short, The Elite Way: Art of Destiny by Vincent Bowe is a fantastic novel.

Vincent Bowe is an author with a huge amount of promise! I was completely won over by The Elite Way: Art of Destiny. A wonderful blend of fantasy and action and written so well! The world-building was terrific and I sincerely appreciated the richness of the character development. Bowe's writing style was a treat, well-paced and easy to follow along with (and he writes a beautifully-prosed poem as well (I thoroughly enjoyed its usage as Hileena broke some important news to Kao)! There were a couple of small formatting glitches, but certainly nothing big enough to downgrade for in my opinion. I highly recommend this book and would absolutely read more by this author! Well done!!!

Romantic

Enjoyed some of the author's way of expressing. Example: "The drummers were beating their drums so fiercely that Richard felt his brain might dance right out of his ears." That was unique, as was the story. Very creative. There was a moment with Richard, Kao, and Rijo (The Elites) were being assaulted by a small being that moved so quickly it was a blur. I really felt for them and kept reading a bit faster to see what it was and if they would prevail. It was truly one of the most fantastical stories I'd read in quite some time that moved at a fast clip. I really had fun reading this one.

Bookworm

Well written, full of adventure and fantasy elements. The reader follows four young fighters who are thrust into a foreign world and gets to appreciate that when one remains true to oneself, the whole team benefits from it. Highly recommended.

Diane

Very fast paced, fun, and entertaining read. The story had adventure, monsters, magical suits, and a ton of action. Fans of Fantasy will enjoy this book.

Sunny DelSegno

Loved the blend of action and fantasy in this book! Would definitely recommend the series!

W.Drake

It is true indeed, when the author said that each of the characters shall have there own test and when that happens they should not interfere because they would end up not helping but rather preventing the person under the test. This does not apply only to the story but also in real life, where we thought that we need the help or assistance from others but in truth we only need to take the risk to take a leap of faith, a step forward to try it for ourselves and not depend to others. I must say that this story is not only entertaining it offers a great deal of life lesson for both young adults and adults.
