What is Fatebound?
Fatebound is a series of novels by Seth Pen. It is a fantasy/scifi set in an alternate universes consisting of three known solar systems: the Sun, Solaris, and Delia. The story follows a multitude of characters and their tales as they intertwine to save the universe. War, love, magic, with just a lil bit of time travel but a whole lotta fate combine as civilization opposes chaos in life’s pursuit for immortality.
What should I know before I start reading? Three things:
- Start with Volume 2 – Journey of the Sun Child.
- About the “Tales” – Chapters are spliced with “Tales” that include important lore but as you get started, you may just want to skim these sections. The lore is split with portions of dialogue where characters ask for clarity or argue over the truth of the tale, these small portions often include more immediately important information so, if you do chose to skim, those tangents may be the only sections you really need to swallow. That said, the lore does help one grasp the politics and the people at play in the story – and there are a lot of people – so as you read further into Joe’s adventure in Journey of the Sun Child you will likely become more and more curious about the secrets revealed in the lore.
- Glossary and Maps – The books have glossaries and maps included however once you download/print your copy, I won’t be able to update it. Rather than redownloading or printing your copy, you can always check back here, in the Appendix.
