I really enjoyed Inevitable. It is the first of a brand new trilogy from Jason Letts and I know this is a promising start. This story is from the perspective of a spirit; a woman stuck watching 18 year-old Nathan Wheeler as he dies. She realizes how selfless Nathan was in his actions and she feels he deserves a reward for his sacrifice. Nathan has had his own share of heartbreak over the last year of his life and, if anything, the spirit wishes to let him have a "do-over"; a chance to live the l ...more

Inevitable was an ok book.
I got interested in it because of the summary, which totally caught my attention. Plus, the cover art looks really beautiful.

Inevitable is about some kind of spirit who is living in some kind of parallel universe. Apparently, the spirit is a she, but you can't know for sure. She knows the future and the past and only when she intervenes to change something, what will happpen is difficult to guess.

Nathan Wheeler, an unfortunate 19-year old guy will be sacrificing himself

Good stuff. Mr. Letts tells a great story. One of my favorite things about his work is that much of it incorporates science into the story which, for me, is a huge bonus. It never becomes a major player in this story, but it lends possibility to the fantasy driven storyline. I won't restate the synopsis or tell you what the book is about, it's been done. What I will say is that this book is definitely aimed for those who like young adult paranormal romance. If that is what you're looking for, th ...more

It has been a while since I've given a book 5 stars. However, "Inevitable by Jason Letts definitely deserves this rating. "Inevitable is a beautiful tales about love, loyalty, duty to the one's you love and self sacrifice. The storyline was riveting from start to finish.

I got interested in this book when I found it in one of Amazon's Top 100 lists. I forgot which one. I also saw Amanda Hocking's name on the cover page. I thought she was a co-author but upon closer inspection, she was listed as the editor. First time I saw an editor on the cover page. I looked her up in Amazon and saw several books she wrote, most of which were very well reviewed.

As the blurb says, it is the first of the Inevitable Trilogy. The second and third have yet to be published (or maybe
The main concept of Inevitable is a very intriguing idea, a spirit of fate stepping into human form in order to make one mortal boy's life better before he commits a brave and selfless act, which will lead to his own demise. It started off well, each time Nathan and Apoxy crossed paths the things they did and their interactions were quite fresh and interesting but their relationship and the story as a whole lost some of its spark, ironically enough, as they became closer.

I give this book a 3.5/5.

Eighteen year old Nathan just entered college, and after two weeks, his mother passes away from Huntington's Disease. He returns home to care for his fourteen year old sister, Cammie, and his grandmother, and assumes the role of bread-winner.

Things start getting rough and desperate, and bills fall way behind, but Nathan finally finds a job at a cement factory. Exactly one year later, and during an overtime shift at the factory, a horrible accident happens. Nathan has to

MY THOUGHTS: I was a little skeptical when I started this book. To be honest, I read it based on a recommendation from Amanda Hocking, as I love her books. I have to say I was pleasantly suprised by the time I finished the book!

This is a story of a simple boy who is forced, way to early, into some very difficult life decisions. Luck for him, he has someone watching over him and she is determined to make what little time Nathan has left happy memories. What she doesn't realize is how attached sh

I had a few issues with this book. Read the reviews that were aglow about how great it was and I honestly believe that the author got so much traffic because of the name Amanda Hocking on the cover. Upon closer inspection, it listed her as the editor. My first thought was, I have read Amanda's work and although interesting, they were not the best example of an edited book. Thoughts aside, I picked up the book and, guess what, it did not do much for me. I gave it two stars because I liked the ide ...more

What if you had a part in pulling the strings of fate, and knew what would happen to certain individuals? If you knew that a truly good person was going to die, would you turn back time to help improve the life of that one person leading up the that person’s death? That is what one of the main characters decides to do, but can she walk the fine line between improvement and interference? Is there even a line, or is all improvement interference?

I highly enjoyed this book. The characters were belie

Author Jason Letts has taken fate to an all new level with the first book in his new trilogy – Inevitable. It’s easy to find yourself lost within the pages as Letts paints a picture of selflessness at the hands of one eighteen year old boy.

The first chapter of the book is a doozy. I had to take a couple of deep breaths after reading it. It shows us vividly the end of the story and the fate of our main chara
Author Jason Letts breaks away from his young adult fantasy series, Powerless, to bring us the Inevitable Trilogy. Book One, appropriately called “Inevitable,” introduces readers to 18 year old Nathan Wheeler. He is an all around good guy who love and loyalty to those he loves brings him to the attention of a supernatural spirit who roams the universe knowing the future and who has the ability to bend fate.

Two weeks into Nathan’s freshman year of college, his mother passes away from Huntington’
In some ways this was a hard book to read. Not the writing or anything like that, though. No, the thing that tripped me up was that Nathan was destined to die. You know this in the beginning. You can see it coming like a freight train. "Kelly", you might be thinking, "the title of this book is INEVITABLE. What did you think was going to happen? Get over yourself and deal with it." The thing was that I liked the guy. I kept coming back to how I didn't want him to die. I didn't want him to have to ...more

There are two more books in this tirlogy. I'm not sure if I'll read them or not. If they pop up for free on my kindle, then sure.

I had a hard time with the Apoxy character. I just couldn't quite figure her out and with the story being told from her perspective, I really wanted to be on her team. The whole thing seemed odd from the start. Why would this particular Nathan have stuck out so much for fate to intervene like that? Surely there were other Nathans equally as deserving.

This was a decent read, there were some editing/spelling errors that stuck out to me. The story though was familiar yet different from some of the books in this genre. Yes it’s predictable, but there are some unexpected twist and turns in the story. Seeing as this is a trilogy the ending was expected, but otherwise it is enjoyable. I like that this is a paranormal story that isn’t too paranormal, there is some ‘magic’ but I would put this in a Fantasy category more. I also liked that there was r ...more

Took me forever to finish this book and it wasn't because it was long either, I found it to be that bad. The writing seemed confused at times, going from simple to trying too hard to be articulate. It could've been nice if he would have picked one writing style and stuck with it versus throwing in some big words here and there. I hated Nathan, such a weak, feeble charc no wonder bad things happen to him, he's pretty dense and clueless. The premise tried too hard and lacked substance. The charcs ...more

I would probably say 3.5 stars.

This one was a little slow going in the beginning, and kind of hard to follow. I felt like I was reading the Vampire Diaries books where everything just jumped around instead of sequentially and sensically unfolding. Regardless it was still a good story, and towards that last third of the book it did get much more intriguing. Enough so that I'm on to the next one in the series and feel that it's already better than the first. A quick, easy read for $.99 on Kindle.

I like this book.

It's very unique. It was told from the perspective of the spirit Apoxy and I like how events played out.

There's this genuineness and sincerity to the characters in the beginning and it's hard to imagine that the ending will be such.

However, towards the end, there's this weird sense that the characters are evolving and I'm not sure if it was properly laid out. The reactions to the male lead's supposed death and how they tried to prevent it appeared to be written too quickly.

It is a fantasy story... All 'outer stronger power to control every tiny thing about this world' and 'we are nothing but puppets' kind of. But even though it starts in a very confusing manner, it'll still start to make a hold on you after some initial pages. I would say that it could have been much better than what it is. Has a power somewhere deep to keep you enticed within it but at the same time kind of feel a little bit weak at few turns. Liked it over all because it somehow made me want to ...more

Apoxy is a spirit from another universe who travels to past and predicts the future. Because of a boy Nathan, who is too kind for his world, she is willingly to give him the best of his life, before it will drastically end. The story is an ok read, but kind of flat. It couldn't enthrall me enough. It kind of gives me an unsatisfied feeling after reading. But, I will definately read the next one.

I liked so much about this story. I don't even know where to start. I loved how the ethereal narrator became stuck in her human form the more she fell in love with the main character. Very nicely done. I also liked that even when trying to avoid the inevitable, that sometimes it is all about the journey. I will definitely read (and have started) the next installment in the series.

At fisrt I didnt liked it at all. It was one of my worst books ever. Yesterday when I picked up again it was worse. Now I find it ok. Weird right. Its called mood swing and that means I will have to re read it in order to give a reliable review. But I will tell you this. Not as devine as the summary implies. In fact the summary is better than the book.

Mandi Luna
I had a hard time finishing this book. The story seemed very slow and the perspective was very confusing, which made character development lacking. There were parts that started to get good, but didn't quite get there. I probably will not read this again. I give this two stars because it wasn't completely horrible, just not quite good.

This book was a very enjoyable read, but it wasn't quite as smooth as it could have been and was a little sticky sweet at the end. I know it's Jason's first foray into the romance area... and I haven't had a chance to read his Powerless series. But, still a good read and worth the time.
Jenny Bates
I liked the story and premise of this book. I found the editing left something to be desired. There were typos, spelling and grammatical errors. I am not sure if I am interested enough to continue with the series, but I would be interested to find out what happens with Apoxy.

I really enjoyed this book, as it's not the ususal style of paranormal story I go for.
I'll be interested to see what happens with some of the other characters besides Nathan.
Hopefully my curiosities will be answered in the sequel.

There are a lot of things I do to balance out though: traveling, distance running, hiking, reading, orange juice, tennis, food fights, walking out of movie theaters telling the people in line that Harry Potter dies, cooking ethnic food, and competitive napping.
