The pain gradually increased until, on the anniversary of the Bombings, an uncanny event unfolded: Kismet took the place of Qadar.

In the Broken Frontier Anthology story,  Kismet's background is given more detail, including his full name Khalil Qisma , his home Algiers , and his occupation jail guard before becoming "Kismet. Later, he takes to the streets, thwarting local crimes until Frenchman Lamond Lamont enlists him to help in the European war effort. Leaving his wife and young children behind, Kismet accepts, leading to his Bomber Comics adventures.
Kismet's final wartime mission, however, brings him to the realization that Lamont has turned traitor and threatens the Allies plans to liberate France. He confronts Lamont who admits to his treachery just as Kismet foresees Lamont falling to his death. Unwilling to accept both his friend's betrayal and fate, Kismet denies his foresense and stops Lamont from falling; Lamont, however, does not wish to be saved and wriggles loose, falling to his slightly delayed death.
Yet, Kismet's action—delaying Lamont's fate even momentarily—triggers some kind of supernatural phenomenon. Kismet suddenly disappears, removed from physical reality.

It was very nicely put together, and I liked getting inside the supporting cast's head, that I honestly think are much more interesting characters than the main characters from the first book that I found slightly moronic and annoying Anyway, as for the first book, I don't like that this book condones violence and vandalism, and I find the author's ability to write a captivating romance lacking, I'm sorry to say But it was a nice read, and I hope the author's writing improves, 'cos she obviously has a great mind for storybuilding and out-of-the-ordinary plots.
Definitely recommend for anyone who sort-of liked her first book. This book is an adorable companion to the first Fate and Fortune book!
Daniels does a great job giving a fresh perspective without going into too much depth in scenes that were featured in the first book hence the reason you should read it first. It was so great to see what the rest of the gang was up to while fate was working its magic on Bryce and Paige!
This book was the follow up to Fate and Fortune, and it told the same story, but from the point of view of the other characters involved. While the switching narration was definitely fun, it was a little bit difficult to remember who was speaking at times.
But overall, I enjoyed this look into Bryce and Paige's love story from the outside perspective of their friends and siblings. I'd recommend it if you're in the mood for a fun, quick read!
I like when books round everything off. There is a beginning and an end. This book fills in all the holes and some of the lines may be cheesy, but I can see me in this story as one of the characters and my friends as the others. Very relatable humor and angst. The fear of rejection and the obvious outcomes were still easy to see coming, but it all flowed naturally that I was cool with it.
What a fun sequel! I loved getting everyone's perspective and learning how they pulled it all off I just loved the couple's coming together. As noted in the description, this story's pacing and puzzle of scenes probably won't be all that enjoyable unless you've read book one.
I believe it's best to read one right after the other. As with book one, this book contains crude humor, innuendo, and perhaps in some ways a bit stronger emphasis on fate, which I feel a little saddened by. While book one focused on Paige and Bryce, this book invites you to get to know the rest of the group and their own trials, dreams, and schemes.
