The City of Reyza, the Jewel of Ibea, is known for its colorful markets, exotic courtesans, and its underworld where lives are as short as a gossip's silence. 
                                          
Renowned jewel thief, Jarle 'Jars' Jadien, has had it with the parsimonious gray-haired harpy whom he serves. Seeking to escape her clutches, he embarks on the heist of a lifetime. He infiltrates the home of Avaren Ensther, the king's bride, and steals her dowry gifts. Jarle is about to escape a rich man, when a hired assassin breaks into the girl's bedroom and threatens her life.  Unable to stand idly by while Avaren is brutalized, Jarle saves her life.
                                          
Together, Jarle and Avaren flee to a hidden grotto deep in the wilds where terrible secrets are revealed. Avaren  is not some hothouse flower, but a Naera-a mythical creature born of a mortal and a mermaid with the power to bend men's wills. And she wants revenge. 
                                          
As three moons begin a cataclysmic alignment that floods the streets of Reyza, legacies topple, romance blooms, and a faceless terror is unveiled. 
                                          
In the end, no one can escape the tendrils of fate.

I love books with scene-pictures here and there. It's rare to find books like that in Wattpad.
I finally have the time to read this book! I can't wait to see what awaits me in the next chapters 😄
I think this is the most polished Author's Note and Copyright I have ever read!
                              
                              Plus, the artwork is absolutely breathtaking!

You've been incubating Tendrils of Fate for five years?
                              
                              Okay, I'm looking forward to this
This is a long nurtured piece of writing art indeed!  The visuals for the cover are very arresting.  Judging from the cover art and the blurb, I would be moved to get a copy of this even if it weren't free.  So I'd say brilliant work on that part alone.  Now time to dive in, as you say.
wow!!! Amazing cover and illustration! Splendor! An interesting idea for the story
