"There's a lot of action and intrigue and, of course, some great romance...ASH is a crazy dystopian that will have you wanting to change your fate and choose your own destiny."
“Petroff and Manley have created a world where fate is terrifyingly unpredictable when entrusted to the wrong hands. Addictive and fast-paced, ASH will pull readers along for the ride and leave them anxious for the next installment."
--Joelle Charbonneau, New York Times bestselling author of THE TESTING trilogy
"A good fit for Hunger Games fans. It offers compelling, complex story lines, neatly paced, with plenty of twists and turns. Told in alternating chapters from both girls’ viewpoints, the story shows the artificialness of the boundaries we impose on others in society." —Booklist
"The action is never sparse in this science fiction series opener...For those who enjoy stories about rebelling against "the system," such as Suzanne Collins's "The Hunger Games" and Veronica Roth's "Divergent", the "Destined" series is bound to entertain and enthrall."
--School Library Journal
"Petroff and Manley offer an entertaining story."
"ASH is a breakneck thriller filled with action and romance. Destined for bestseller lists, it's perfect for fans of Divergent and The Hunger Games.”
—Michelle Gagnon, author of the PERSEFONE trilogy
Destiny is pre-determined. It is strictly monitored. It is unchangeable. Or is it?
Madden’s life is a whirlwind of privilege and perks. Born into the elite Purple ring, she is fated to be a Minister of the Seven. Although her position comes with the burden of great responsibility, she’s nothing if not confident in her future. After all, Destiny Specialists have determined how she will fulfill her life's purpose, and they are never wrong.
Her classmate Dax, an Ash, is clinging to the opposite end of the spectrum. While everyone around her knows what destiny awaits them, Dax’s fate is…missing. Isolated and ignored, she refuses to let her lack of status define her.
After a stunning twist of fate, Dax and Madden’s paths intertwine in ways neither could have possibly imagined. The two are forced to question their own past, present and future as they realize who they are is not necessarily who they were meant to be.
ASH, the first book in the Destined series, is an unforgettable journey into an alternate future which will leave readers wondering just how much we can control our own fate.
Destiny is calling. Will you fight for yours?
