The Fadian Trilogy
Cards of Fate Part One
Welcome to Obeh City, where the Method rules every aspect of its citizens' lives. On the surface, there is order and contentment, but the gleaming perfection is only surface deep. Grinding poverty and immense wealth exist within arm's reach of each other and those who cannot conform to the Method’s expectations find themselves in great peril no matter the balance of their bank account. From this toxic brew emerges a new class of being, the Fadian. However, their existence and increasing powers are heralds of hope. These beings represent a greater threat than the secret power struggles of the city’s elite: complete annihilation. Dive into the exciting urban fantasy world of the Fadian Trilogy and find out their fates
Having failed the assessment that promised escape from poverty, Kaleigha spends her days dodging enforcers and drifting between legitimate jobs and street hustles. Her quest for survival is often derailed by the disembodied voices that lead her to good fortune just as often as they lead her astray. After an inexplicable incident involving her mother’s boyfriend, Kaleigha finds herself kicked out of her home.
Kaleigha is immediately rescued by a man claiming to be her father. He offers her a life of comfort, notoriety, and most of all help with the mysterious changes happening to her. However, Kaleigha cannot accept the price of this guidance and runs away to join a mysterious enclave. There she learns the origin of her powers, their reality-altering nature, and the true threat to their entire existence.
Kaleigha must shake the reigns of the city’s elite power brokers so that she is free to save them all from the looming threat of total annihilation.
Despite the revelation of the Fadian experiment, the power structure of Obeh City remains unchanged. However, Egoly‘s situation has gone from bad to worse and along the way, he’s betrayed the one person who trusted and respected him, Kaleigha. When his former captors offer the opportunity to correct his mistakes, he accepts the mission without hesitation.
His new handlers don’t take well to this sudden disloyalty and Egoly finds himself fighting a war on three fronts. Faced with a defeat that will see him imprisoned with Kaleigha, Egoly seeks an alliance with his oldest enemy.
Egoly must stop hiding behind the others’ powers so that he and Kaleigha are free to leave Obeh City. Will he make his choice before they are both re-enslaved or worse, obliterated?

Unfortunately, Ilma isn't the only one who realizes the experiment is off track. The agents of The Method are eyeing Starfall pod's drop in productivity and clamoring for an explanation. With none forthcoming,
