Tournament of Chance is a fantasy novel by S.G Rogers. Here’s the blurb
When a beautiful commoner enters the Tournament of Chance archery competition, her thwarted victory sparks a revolution in the oppressive kingdom of Destiny. Although Heather never believed the legends about the restoration of Ormaria, after three shape-shifting Ormarian wizards awaken from a long magical slumber, she joins their perilous quest to regain the throne. Heather battles vicious predators and angry trolls to free the wizards’ magic, but at a horrendous cost. She is unexpectedly torn from the arms of the man she loves and hurled back in time to fulfill a prophecy not yet written. The ensuing maelstrom tests Heather’s survival skills, wits, and endurance. Will she become an unwritten footnote in history, or can she trust the magic to lead her back to her one true love?
Yeah. I included the blurb because there is NO way I could sum up this story without major spoilers, but OMG, this story was SO good.
Rogers deftly wields a plot line that would take me three books to see through into one. It’s fast paced and fascinating! There were spots I wanted it to slow down a bit to get more of a reaction from the characters but that was mostly because I didn’t want it to end. I loved Heather, and Dane, and Jo, and Shimmer, and… You know, I loved everyone. This was a completely developed world. The time travel aspect was really interesting, and I really liked the way magic worked in this universe. I’ll be on the lookout for more books from this author for sure!
