"Faeries liked to tease the weak, but they loved to annihilate the strong."

Seven years ago, the exposure of the paranormal led to the tumultuous downfall of human society. Now, the legions of the fae rule the broken world, and humanity has nothing left but a handful of protected cities and a heaping helping of regret.

Enter Vincent Whelan. Half fae and former cop, he's become the best-known stretch scavenger in Kinsale, North Carolina, braving the "stretches" outside his city to recover precious items lost in the collapse. He makes good money. Lives the good life. Has a good future in store. As long as he can ignore his traumatic memories of the past.

But when a new job with an odd twist blows onto his doorstep, Vince finds himself unwittingly drawn into a vast conspiracy lurking underneath Kinsale's thin veneer of civilization. Old friends suddenly return to haunt him. New enemies appear at every turn. And Vince fears he isn't prepared to confront either one.

But if he doesn't put his detective hat back on and solve this case on a tight deadline, then what's left of the city he calls home might just crumble to dust.

What Fate Portends is the first novel of The Frost Arcana, an action-packed urban fantasy series set in a post-apocalyptic world.

i enjoy stories like this. Good clean fun fiction. Vincent is a half blood. He live in a post apocalyptic world where most fae have been "purged" from society for being "dangerous".Vincent is one of the stronger of the half blood fae but the enemy he encounters here may suprise you.

This book was just fun. It's an easy read, fast paced, and has interesting characters and plot. It even had me laughing out loud a time or two.The world it takes place in is not somewhere I have visited before. A nuclear wintery world with magic and fea? That is a new twist.It's worth reading, especially if you can get a good deal.

I like the idea of fairies, elves, and other paranormals getting the best of humans and ultimately save them from themselves.

As always, I am hesitant when an author I like starts another series when I already love the series he/she is writing currently. Will I like it as well as the one I’m currently loving? Will the series have as good writing as the one I love does? Well, in the case of this new series, I needn’t have worried. From the moment I first started this book, I was drawn in and it didn’t let me go until I was finished. I loved Vincent, the world, the plot…well, just about everything in this book. And, to be honest, post-apocalyptic genres are not my favorite. However, since the author writes extremely well, I didn’t care about that. The world building was interesting, the cast of characters intriguing (especially the one at the end!), and the setup for future books was tantalizing. I can’t wait to see what is coming next in this series. Highly recommend!
