She says she isn't destined for love, that Fate doesn't know she exists. But I plan to prove to her that Fate's the biggest fool of all.
Until lately, life as a Gold dragon has been pretty easy. I'm living a rockstar's dream with my best friend. We've even joined our favorite band of all time, Fate's Fools, as its two newest members. It's more than any guitar-playing dragon could hope for.
But one fine spring day I come face-to-face with what I'm missing—Deva, a gorgeous woman with a voice like a siren's song. Suddenly so much more matters than our next gig, and I can tell I'm not the only one of the guys who thinks so. She's magnificent, mysterious, and I can feel that she wants me too. Wants all of us. And she can stake her claim any way her heart desires; I'm the kind of dragon who's down to share.
But something is keeping Deva at arm's length. She's got a secret. Something is haunting—and maybe even hunting—her. And while she may be willing to give up her body any way I please, getting her to give up that secret is going to take a lot more work.
It's a good thing the five of us are up for a challenge.
I read this book several years ago and picked it up to reread the full series of stories again recently. Ophilia Bell's books are always different from other stories I have read and have wonderful world building. It is actually a real book rather than just a novella and as a result has a lot of details, twists and turns and a plot. I particularly like dragon shifter romances and the reverse harem trope, so this story works well for me.
This is the start to another great series by Ophelia Bell that you won’t want to miss reading! It’s a wonderful spin-off from the Immortal Dragons Series that will keep you spellbound to find out what’s going to happen. Your sympathy will go out to Deva as her “soul-less” predicament is truly heartbreaking and is interfering with her sense of worth and entitlement to bond with the mate(s) she’s “fated” to have. Speaking of fate—wow fate is definitely throwing a monkey wrench into her life and has become one of the main “characters” in this story.
Book 1 of Fate’s Fools by Ophelia Bell
Deva is a mysterious being that has no soul but a massive heart that she wants to give to other people but Deva feels lost especially when she finds out the Bloodline have been attacked and there soul is leaking.
A lot happens and new characters are introduced which does get problematic to keeping track.
New band mates make up Fates Fools and then becomes very intense and very intimate between all characters.
I’ve struggled a lot with this book I did feel like I was being stringed along for awhile but I also struggled with the intense prolonged courting between Deva and her group of lovers, nothing developed permanently till like 90% of the book.
I was worried this book would stalemate but OMG to kept me hook whole way through and I have given 5 ⭐️ even though I absolutely hate cliffhangers.
Just finished the audiobook and it was even better then the ebook. The narrators were fantastic but it brought the book and characters to life so much. Really looking forward to other fates fools being made into audiobook
