Synopsis (Goodreads):
For her, he would endure a lifetime of agony.

First Officer Ghan has entered the final stages of the Taint, the deadly disease that kills most Xelixian males by the age of forty. He is determined to bring an elusive foe to justice before his body shuts down completely.

When tragedy strikes a close ally, he finds his soulmate in an unexpected twist of fate. If only she had revealed herself sooner, she could have cured him. Now, she can only keep him in limbo. Is it too late for them or will fate deal them a new hand?

This new chapter of the epic Veredian Chronicles saga will take you through a whirlwind of gut-wrenching emotions, danger, and passion as earthshattering secrets are revealed, and the bonds of friendship and family are put to the test.
Thoughts on Twist of Fate: Okay. I have a soft spot for Ghan. I have since the surly, grumpy First Officer was introduced in Amalia's book. Why? Because under that gruff exterior, he's a total softy. He adores Amalia and sees her as the kid sister he never had and he's transferred that adoration to her children now that she's well on her way to repopulating her people. Just kidding. She doesn't have THAT many kids. But she is amassing an impressive amount.

But let's talk about Ghan, shall we? Ghan and his special someone. Ghan, who's in the final stages of the disease that kills so many of the Xelixian males. Ghan, who might have feelings for someone, but doesn't think he's worthy.

Which huuuuurts, because he's not only worthy, he's a darn good person in general.

We get family reunions, answers about the sprawling empire built with the blood of the Veredians (or, you know, their ability to breed powerful psi children), and SO MUCH MORE. This series continues to impress with the depth and breadth of world building and I am STILL SMITTEN.
