No wager is too outrageous for Simon Fitzgerald, the most reckless of the Disillusionists.
Fawna Brady is tormented by the destinies she sees for those around her. To Fawna, knowledge of the future is a cage she’d do anything to escape.
Simon’s defiant attitude toward destiny captivates Fawna, but will her love destroy him? And will Simon rush headlong into the delicious doom she offers?
Really enjoying The Disillusionists series, and this short story is a welcome addition! It's about Simon and Fawna, both awesome characters mentioned all too briefly in the other books. I always wondered about Simon's background, and am pleased with the details Carolyn provides. And Fawna! Would love to see more of her in the future!
Simon thumbs his nose at fate and doesn't want anything to do with Fawna's ability to see into the future. His total refusal to let destiny have any impact on his life fascinates Fawna, and proves oddly irresistible. Used to feeling trapped by her gift, Fawna can't resist the taste of freedom that being with Simon provides.
The thing that really struck me about this story was their passion. No, not that...I mean their passion for living! They seemed to be having so much fun that I wanted to jump in and join them! Simon's recklessness seems appealing rather than foolishly dangerous, and I loved watching Fawna throw caution to the wind!
This was a fast read that totally left me wanting more! Loved the characters, it had a fast-paced plot that benefited from Carolyn's talented writing. Definitely recommend this series to anyone who's looking for something a little different than your usual urban fantasy read!
