Hey everyone! My name is Angela Fristoe, and I write paranormal (and some contemporary) romance for adults and teens. I started as a YA author and have gradually added in romance for adults, but I love YA and keep going back to it! I am so excited to be here to share a bit about my upcoming book FATE’S LEGACY with you.
FATE’S LEGACY is a little different than anything I’ve ever written before since it’s less paranormal and more science fiction. I actually started writing it around four years ago and shelved it. When I received an invitation to be part of the MARKED BY FATE boxset, I decided this project would be a perfect fit for it.
Willow Maya has been on the run her entire life. From what, she doesn’t know. All that matters is survival. When her parents vanish, leaving behind only a vague note of apology, she figures her days are numbered. Then she meets Liam, and her reality crumbles with a single word. Aliens.
How is she supposed to deal with the fact that not only are aliens real and hiding among humans, but she’s their next queen?
Liam had one job to do—kill the Maya. As the future Vitares ruler, she’s destined to bring about the eradication of their race and the destruction of Earth. But when he meets Willow, a single touch ends his plans for the future and ties their lives together for eternity.
Now he has one mission—keep them alive long enough for Willow to ascend, even if it means sacrificing everything and everyone he loves.
SNEAK PEEK of FATE’S LEGACY
I glanced toward the back of the bus. Weirdo bus guy stared at me from under the edge of his hood. I still couldn’t see his face, but his eyes glowed through, a vivid blue so unnatural they had me on the verge of pissing my pants. Thoughts of bloodthirsty vampires flooded my mind, and I froze, completely brain dead as to what I should do.
Common sense took over. At least, as common sense as you can get when some kind of blue-eyed demon watched you sit alone on a bus with darkness settling in.
I gave him a teeth-baring smile and stood, glad I didn’t have any bags and that the wallet I bought and was about to abandon only cost me three bucks. He shifted as I moved, and I leapt for the door, hoping to God he didn’t have super speed or strength.
I jumped down the steps and ran smack in to the driver, who fell back on impact. I didn’t hesitate, taking off down the sidewalk, ignoring the loud ‘Hey!’ he yelled at me. My feet slipped a few times, and I face planted once, but I got up and kept running.
There were no sounds behind me, but that didn’t mean anything. Vampires could fly, couldn’t they? Or, at least, jump extreme distances.
Ahead of me, the police station loomed, a beacon of safety for most people. For me, it meant a possible trip to court for filing another false report. Of course, if I went in and told them some guy on the bus had glowing blue eyes, they might opt to send me to the hospital.
Because, seriously, that was where I belonged. Glowing eyes? Vampires? There was something wrong with me. Something beyond my weird parents and my uncanny ability to attract criminals intent on relieving me of all my worldly possessions. Besides, didn’t vampires have red eyes?
I slowed my running to an eventual walk and shook my head at my own stupidity. A quick glance back down the street assured me no one followed. It should have been comforting, but, while I wasn’t being followed, no one else was around either. The businesses were long gone, replaced by houses set back from the road and surrounded by big bushy shrubs that would make perfect hiding places for vampires, or, more likely, the common thieves who always found me.
I knelt to pull my cell phone from my sock, and as I started to rise, a pair of black shoes stepped in front of mine. My heartbeat doubled its efforts, and I debated my chances of a running escape. Finally deciding on not so great, I rose, letting my eyes travel up the length of my probable attacker.
Black jeans, black shirt peeking out from under a black hoodie, and earphones dangling down.
Crap. Weirdo bus guy.

As part of the MARKED BY FATE boxset one of the things I got to do was create some bonus content for our Preorder Reader Portal. The one I loved the most was putting together a Fantasy Cast List for FATE’S LEGACY! I thought I’d share it here for you as a special treat.
