Title: Challenging Fate
Author: Renee Stevens
Publisher: Self Published
Length: 76 pages
Maki waited years to discover what dragon spirit the fates gifted him with. He anticipated his first flight, his parents at his side, as he launched himself into the sky for the first time. Best of all, one day he’d find his mate and spend the rest of his life with someone by his side. Unfortunately for him, things didn’t go exactly as he’d always planned.
Renee Stevens first started writing in her teens but didn’t get serious about being an author until her mid-twenties. Since then she’s written a number of contemporary stories, as well as delved into the paranormal. When not writing, or spending time in the outdoors, Renee can usually be found working on GayAuthors.org in her capacity of admin and Anthology Coordinator.
Renee resides in Wyoming with her wonderfully supportive husband and a menagerie of four-legged critters. Making the most of the nearly constant negative temperatures and mounds of snow, Renee spends much of the winter months in hibernation with her laptop, the voices in her head keeping her company while her husband works. When she needs a break from writing, Renee takes to the sewing machine to design, and make, beautiful quilts.
When the snow finally disappears, usually around May or June, Renee can be found in the great-outdoors. She spends her time on the mountain, at the lake, and just anywhere that she can do some camping, take some photos, and ride the four-wheelers with her hubby. Once back at home, it’s back to writing.

This starts off a very sad tale.
Cyan has been chased out of his clan. They are afraid of him and the legends surrounding his kind.
Ryder has been kidnapped and tortured by an evil wizard.
After Cyan rescues him he stays with Cyan while he heals and regains his strength.
As the shifters get to know each other you get a glimpse of a happy ending only for it to be threatened with being crushed before they have a chance to grab it.
A story of love found, lost, and found again, a wonderful read.
My favorite bit was the ending; when they find out what is truth and myth, in the legends they have been taught.
