Can they change their destiny?

They kissed only once—and it was electric, like the air before a storm. But Corinthe and Luc broke the rules of the universe, and learned too late that their love would have consequences. In the dizzying aftermath, Luc refuses to accept his destiny—not if it means a life without Corinthe. As a fire rages through the Crossroads that connect wor

3.5 stars.

Lanie Bross's exciting follow up to Fates takes us right back to the world of Executors, Radicals and the Unseen Ones. A world where free will clashes with destiny and one's fate is written in the stars. A world full of magic and fantastical creatures where, again, we dance around the themes of forbidden love, fate and free will, all the while trying to keep up with the wild and eventful plot line.

I enjoyed this was a pretty decent follow up to Fates. I really liked the last few chapters in this novel, I think that is really where the story fell into place for me. And some of the time jumping with Jasmine helped uncover some stuff but overall her story line with Ford seemed too fast? Like they fall for each other instantly .. and over just happened way too quickly in my opinion. There wasn't really any Corinthe in this novel and she was by far the best ...more

When I first read Fates by author Lanie Bross, I remember being immersed in a world that was unlike any other. It was fantasy mixed up with magic and teen drama and the kind of quick-pacing that made it impossible to put the novel down. After finishing Fates, I’ll admit I had no idea how the story would progress. With one of the main characters dead it felt like there wasn’t going to be much room to grow which made me excited to see what would happen in the sequel Chaos.

'Chaos' is the second book in a young adult fantasy series that continues to explore the concepts of love, fate, destiny, and free will. The second book picks up where the first left off - after Corinthe and Lucas have kissed and broken the rules of the universe. Things are thrown into chaos because of their love, but Lucas refuses to give up and doesn't want any kind of future that doesn't include Corinthe. He must find a way to go back in time to save her - once and for all. The chaos that has ...more

Really unimpressed by this one. Jasmine and Ford's story was completely unnecessary additions (if you took out their plot, nothing would change in the rest of the book) and Luc was basically pining away the whole book. The writing style was the saving grace since Bross has some kind of magical way with words, but other than that... I was expecting a lot more than this. The use of of instalove in the first book was tolerable, but fool me once, shame on me and fool me twice... Well you know the re ...more

Just finish this book, and I must say it was good, a little confusing in few chapters. It had a happy ending for Luc and Corinthe but what happened to Jasmine? Is the one that has me intrigue which I hope that the next book can explain more about Ford and how what radical he is?

In this book we see Luc going thru the end just to Corinthe and his sister Jasmine, he wants both not one or there. In his journey, he faces with Miranda, Tess, and few executors. Luc finds the tunnels that Rhys has ment

This was completely and utterly different than the first one. This had like no connection to Greek mythology, so again, if you come to this series expecting that, you will be sorely disappointed.

That said, this is still a pretty interesting book. After the events of book one, Luc is on a mission. Simultaneously, his sister Jas is on a mission, too, involving another Free Radical who may or may not be out to get her. We don't really find out, once things are wrapped up, because the book just end

I didn't love this. It was an interesting way of putting the world, but there was just too much, yet not enough going on... There were a lot of jumps in perspective, a lot of jumps between worlds, and time. Honestly, there was so much of it that I didn't see it going very far very fast and almost gave up on it. I decided to give it a chance and skipped just before the end and honestly, I felt like I didn't miss a whole bunch...

Fates and Chaos are the first and second books of the Fates series by Lanie Bross and I have decided that I am going to do this review combining both books since I was able to read these books back to back. I have to admit, I enjoyed both books but I think Fates (book 1) edged out Chaos by a smidge. Please be warned – there are some things that I might mention that could be spoilers so definitely continue reading at your own risk.

I would have to say that I was a little disappointed with the ending. I found myself yelling "That's it?! Are you serious?!" It was one of those moments where I felt like I invested a day reading the story, fully captured in the plot and then the ending was just a slap in the face! How can someone end a story in that way?!

Chaos starts off right where Fates left off. Corinthe is dead and Luc has miraculously brought his sister, Jas, back home. Luc is struggling with the loss of Corinthe and is hell-bent on finding a way to turn back time and bring her back. Jas knows something happened to her but she doesn’t remember what. As Luc embarks on his search, weird occurrences are happening to Jas and without Luc there to explain,

The Plot:

Jasmine is back on Earth after Luc saves her from death in another realm, but her life had to be replaced by the life of Corinthe. Jasmine is unaware of what has happened, but she wakes up with very heightened senses, not understanding why she feels so different and has a new awareness of everything around her. Luc decides he will do whatever it takes to go back in time and rescue Corinthe, so he travels back through the Crossroad to other worlds, attempting to figure out a way to get

I had a lot of problems with Chaos, the sequel to Fates, which I found to be an interesting book with some faults. However, Chaos felt like actual chaos to me and while I will admit that it is an addicting read (I read it in one sitting) I found it to be lacking in some areas.

I hoped Chaos would be better than Fates, with more fleshed out backstory that felt solid and that it would add some depth to the characters and it didn’t quite hit that mark for me. It picks up right after Fates e

CHAOS is the exciting and action-packed second book in a series about fate and love that takes readers on a journey through time and through worlds to find out whether love is strong enough to alter destiny. It is a suspenseful story filled with interesting twists, intriguing temporal paradoxes, and fascinating concepts about chance and destiny and balance and disorder.

Picking up right where the first book left off, CHAOS follows Lucas as he attempts to fulfill his promise to Corinthe, Miranda a

I have always been a fan of books that have their base in Mythology (mainly Greek), so I was excited to read Fates when it first crossed my path earlier this year. I absolutely loved the story. As a Fate, Corinthe was tasked with sorting people's destinies into the right path. She was not allowed to ask questions at all. But when she becomes too inquisitive, she is cast out of her home wo

Jas is home but Luc isn't so sure her safety is guaranteed. An attack by two Executors cements his concerns but he needs to find a way to try and save Corinthe before it's too late. Considering Jas has no memory of her time with the Blood Nymphs, Luc believes she'll be safe hidden away with their aunt until he can return. But as he travels again to the worlds accessed via Crossroad in search of a way to bring Corinthe back from the dead, Jas is searching for something too: the truth about what h ...more

Once again, Lanie Bross proves she has what it takes to tell an amazing story.

Chaos takes up literally right after the events of Fated. So if you haven't read Fated, this book will NOT make sense.

After Corinthe dies in his arms, Lucas makes the decision to defy the universe and turn back time to rescue the woman he loves. But even the smallest changes to the threads of the universe has rippling consequences across time and space.

What price is Lucas willing to pay to bring Corinthe back from the

It was really good. Heart pounding and I couldn't put the book down (unless I had to go do something seriously important) I was a little confused on one of the ending chapters (when Jasmine finds Luc in the house and Fors interrupts them as well. I thought that it may have been an alternate universe, but no. It was not. He got out of Kinesthesia and into his own house). Overall, I liked the book. I wanted Ford and Jasmine to be together, but it's okay. She will save him and she has a
After Corinthe's death, Luc is determined to bring her back. But while he dives into the Crossroads to change time, his sister Jasmine experiences odd changes and meets a mysterious boy who may be her only hope to save her life.

Messing with time is always confusing, and this book is no exception. Between the dizzying nature of the Crossroads and Jasmine jumping through time, I really couldn't keep much straight. The book lived up to its title, as I just hung on for the ride. There are a few inte

This book is actually better than the first book-only because of Jasmine's point of view(she wasn't telling the story in the first book-hardly in it) I gave the first book 1 star too. This book would have gotten 2 stars but I HATED the ending. Luc and Corinthe got closure (personally I hated them). But what makes me mad is the Jasmine (one of the main characters- she and Luc told the story) He got his happy ending but she did not. The only good part in this book was her part.

Sometimes I read a book and it doesn't sing to me, but if it is part of a series I try (unless it was just not meant to be)to give it another shot. That is what happened here, and unfortunately it wasn't my cup of tea again. I can't say I will read the next book, the series just doesn't compel me to get lost for 4 hours.

2.5 stars, thanks Edelweiss.
Wow. Sometimes I wish I could turn back time but this book definitely shows me that that would be the worst way to go. It was an amzing book and the story was engaging. This was definitely a perfect ending to a series.
