Synopsis:Selia has run her family’s tavern since she was fifteen and can hunt and fight the equal of any man. When she rescues a badly wounded man and nurses him back to health, she has no idea she’s about to change not only her life, but also the destinies of two peoples…

The battered warrior is Svistra—a race of bloodthirsty savages determined to destroy her homeland.

Review: Selia runs a tavern and while she and her brother, Oren usually rescue stray, injured animals, she surprises herself when she rescues an injured Svistra and nurses him back to health in her barn.

This is quite an interesting paranormal/ historical story. Selia is a strong character who can fight men and stand up for herself. The different take on vampires, the Svistra, also add a unique element to the typical vampire story. Altered Destiny is about two races overcoming barriers to reach a common goal at a systemic level, but also at a personal level as Selia and the Svistra, Jaden develop feelings for each other. They have to overcome their own prejudices and follow their heart.

If you enjoy historical stories with a blend of paranormal and strong heroines and relatable characters, then you will like Altered Destiny.
