Fortune and Fate by Sharon Shinn
Fortune and Fate by Sharon Shinn is the fifth book in the Twelve Houses series and is my favorite. Sharon Shinn writes in a way that makes the reader care about her characters. It is like meeting old friends when characters reappear in each book. Fortune and Fate is about Wen a side character from the first four books. The main characters for pervious books re-appear and play a significant part in the story. Like the other books this is a love story. I love the series and hope that there will be additional books about the Twelve Houses. Reading this series is like a taking a long leisurely stroll with good friends while you catch up with what they have been doing for the last year or so. I am surprised it took me so long to discover books by Sharon Shinn.
