Book Review - Fate Be Changed: A Twisted Tale

Fate Be Changed: A Twisted Tale

About the Book
What if the witch gave Merida a different spell? This New York Times best-selling series twists Disney•Pixar's Brave into a fast-paced story in which Merida is sent back in time.

If you could change your fate, would you? Merida understands that as princess of Clan DunBroch, she has certain obligations—but that doesn’t mean she has to like it. Especially when one of those obligations means losing her freedom by becoming betrothed to a man she has never met. Merida balks at this tradition, but her mother Queen Elinor insists that Merida must do this to embrace her role as future queen.

Determined to chart her own path, Merida follows magical wisps to a witch’s cottage, where she is given a magic pastry and promised it will incite “a great transformation” in her mother. But instead of feeding Elinor the pastry, Merida eats it herself.

Merida awakens in the past, a now-teenage Elinor holding a knife to her throat and accusing her of espionage. She’s been transported to a time when the Clans MacCameron and DunBroch are bitter enemies. And it just so happens that the timing of Merida’s arrival has kept Elinor and Fergus from meeting.

Will Merida be able to bridge the rival clans, help her parents fall in love, and change her own fate?

My Take on the Book
I love these twisted tales and in reading this, this is no different. I loved how this book brought forth the story of Merida in a whole new way. The story had a ton of twists and turns and makes you keep guessing about what might happen until the very end. The book is a ton of fun and Merida gets to learn so much more about herself, her parents and the clans too. All-in-all this is a great book that keeps brings you back for more!
