She stole his fate…

Lachesis is a Fate, an ancient goddess in whose hands our destinies are unraveled. When she’s not weaving fortune, she does what she wants when she wants. That all changes when she runs into the man she craves but prayed to never see again. And she'll soon discover the god of terror can really hold a grudge.

Now it’s his turn…

Very vividly written novella! Welcome to a fast pace Greek Mythology tale and a sexy romance. This is the first book I have read by this author and I will be coming back for more. I love how she gets into the detail and how she carries out the romance between the hero and heroine. You know how you get some romance books that are just all about sex and no romance. Well, in this story you get the best of both romance and sex because the author builds the romance with great teasers here and there,

They sat together in the park
As the evening sky grew dark
She looked at him and he felt a spark tingle to his bones
’Twas then he felt alone and wished that he’d gone straight
And watched out for a simple twist of fate

When I heard about this series of novellas in the works I was very excited that I would be introduced to two new authors. This is the first time I've read Berinn Rae, and I loved what she brought to this series! These are the stories of the three Fates; life, destiny, an

Let me start this with a few disclaimers. I was sent an ARC of Stealing Fate by the author, Berinn Rae. I don’t give 5 star reviews. As a reader I don’t always trust them. They could have been written by a friend or family member. They could have been written by the author under another name. Reviews are for readers not writers. To me, 5 stars means something is perfect and in ‘my’ opinion nothing is perfect. Also it would seem terribly biased if I were to give this novella 5 stars. Some of you ...more

Stealing Fate (very appropriately titled) is the second book in the Unspun series. This series follows the three Fates to their happily ever after and is written by three different authors. I found that Stealing Fate works perfect as a stand-alone. One does not need to read the first book to jump right in this series.

Lachesis, the Great Measurer who weaves the length of life is now known as Lacey. She knows first-hand that her role as a Fate is not difficult. She has had to shorten a life, the l

My Thoughts

One series…three novellas by three different authors…Brilliant idea!

This series tells a story of the Fates of Greek mythology – Clotho, Lachesis and Atropos. Clotho spins new life, Lachesis sets the destiny and length of one’s life, and Atropos ends life.

Stealing Fate is the story of Lachesis (who modernized her name to be Lacey while on Earth) and Phobos (otherwise known as the God of Terror and son of Ares and Aphrodite), and their long overdue reunion. With vengeance on his mind,

My love for Greek mythology was enticed and sparked by this daring story. It’s how I imagine their passions and lust existed as the immortals of the gods. Lachesis and Phobos while are some kick-ass lovers, the action holds you spellbound. Great read.

Good novella!

I love greek myths and I greatly enjoyed this novella about Lachesis and Phobos.
The story has a twist and I found out that Phobos was a tad too headstrong, but I'm intrigued enough to try the other books in this series! :D

Even though I liked Stealing Fate (Unspun #2) better than Creating Fate (Unspun #1), there was something about it that still felt forced to me. It’s my main issue with short stories and novellas driven by romance. They’re rushed, and books always lose stars that way. Doesn’t mean I’m going to stop reading books like these. As I mentioned in a previous review, I love Greek myth, I love the Fates. I’ve already purchased Chasing Fate, and that review will be up as soon as I’m done.

I really liked ho

Received this book free from the author through a giveaway.

After reading a YA novel based on Persephone and Hades, I was excited to read another Greek Mythology inspired story, though this is definitely not YA.

The story is about Lacey, one of the 3 Fates, and her long relationship with the God of Terror, Phobos. You learn briefly about their history, and why they are the way they are. They fight for each other and against each other throughout the whole story.

The writing was smooth, funny a time

Disclaimer: I know Berinn and thinks she's awesome!

Now that that is out of the way, Stealing Fate is the second novella in the "Unspun Trilogy" and I enjoyed it as much as I liked Creating Fate. Lacey and Phobos seem like the epitome of Murphy's Law in relationships - everything that can go wrong will do so! Lacey was a character I could appreciate from her kick-ass attitude to her love of her sisters. Phobos was a sexy, bad ass - what's not to love?

Stealing Fate was a fast-paced, enticing read

The story is quite interesting right from the start. The only problem (for me at least) was that the characters’ appearance, all dressed up in leather, reminded me of some old series about Ancient Greek heroes and Gods(see Xena warrior princess). Apart from that, the story continues with a twist and ends even better. My favourite character I must say was Phobos, who shows both the cruel and the romantic side of a dreamy man. In general, it was a pleasant book to read, with both romance, revenge, ...more

From the moment Lacey and Phobos see each other again, the sparks fly off the pages. I loved that these two already had a history albeit a love/hate one. Lacey is a strong character and as a Fate with an oracle power she has to be, but she is sensitive to her feelings especially when it comes to Phobos. The battle hardened war god, never saw her coming and changing his life completely, so his thoughts easily become jumbled between his desire to keep her and kill her.

The pacing, the action, and

A Spicy Turn of Fate

Lachesis is the middle sister of the three Fates of mythology. She is the one who determines the lifespan of each being. Carrying such lofty responsibility, a girl can use a break once in awhile which is how we find Lachesis or Lacey as she prefers to go by, hanging out at a Goth bar in the Mortal Realm looking for a good time. What she finds instead is the god of war's son, Phobos, also known as Terror, a good-looking badass with a personal grudge against this particular Fa

Mythology meets todays world this story is about a fate that crossed terror even though their love is great his need for vengeance is greater, but what happens if you kill someone you love? This story has a few twists but is pretty good all in all. the characters are well defined and the story is well written. Thegods as always must intervene but whati s the cost? What is one person willing to do to save their own soul?

Greek mythology presented with a twist – this story of Lachesis and Phobos introduced me to characters I may have heard about briefly at some point in time but did not know well. Liberties are no doubt taken with the story lines and in this novella one of the Fates meets the God of Terror. There is steam, action and attraction in this story. I will say that the book has interested me in Greek Mythology.

"You are only a prisoner in the sense that if you run, I will follow. I’ll be right behind you, doing everything in my power to earn your forgiveness. I love you too much to let you go." - Phobos

Don't you just love when, between books that really make you want to bang your head on the wall, you get stories that feel like a breath of fresh air? Stories like this one, for example...

Lachesis - who lately answers to the name Lacey - had to betray the one man she ever loved in the past. Add to her re
