Saving Fate by T. Kolodziej follows Decima King, who experiences vivid dreams of a mysterious man and woman on a desolate road. She thinks it can be the effect of stress. Then she witnesses the suicide of a man from her dreams, and her supervisor goes missing.  Decima suddenly understands that nothing is what it seems. She is enmeshed in a series of murder cases in which she is the prime suspect. Deaths linked to strange symbols are connected to her.  Detectives Jonathan Rennic and Rebecca Stokes are closing in on her; however, she receives help from Nyx, an unfathomable ancient being from the Aetheric realm. But Nyx’s help comes at a cost —Decima must undertake the quest to save fate. But there is a twist as the perpetrator of the crimes sets her eyes on her next victim. She is a villain who is after the man with the master numbers. Can Decima outwit the villain and save fate?

Kolodziej has crafted a twisty, propulsive tale with remarkable and unforgettable characters. Decima is a character gifted with supernatural abilities who also receives help from a mystical being. While she has her unique strengths, she is still portrayed as flawed, which makes her lovable. The prose is gorgeous and the writing is sprinkled by moments that are magical. The intersection between dream and reality is perfectly executed in this fast-paced, engaging story. The eerie atmosphere that dominates the book pulls readers into dreamland. You have the feeling of waking from a dream when you turn the last page of this book —utterly absorbing. Destiny, sacrifice, murder, fate, and the battle between darkness and light are themes that are exceptionally developed. Saving Fate is a twisty tale with emotionally rich moments and characters that are robust. The author balances the perilous quest of the protagonist with an exhilarating sleuth work, creating a finely drawn world with complex characters to deliver a delightful reading experience.
