I loved everything about the story, from the characters (didn't love all of them at first), to the mythology itself, the romances and the mystery/suspense. It ...more
Adding a few favorite lines and safety info.
I really enjoyed reading the Three Fates. If you like a little history and a little whimsy and fantasy this book hits it on all marks. The story revolves around the descendants of the three original families that once possessed three interconnecting statues of the mythical Fates. The Sullivan siblings are the catalysts in the story and are racing to recover the Fate stolen from them by the evil Anita, a ...more
''Fate isn't black or white, right or left. People aren't just plopped down and made to follow one route in life on the whims of the gods. If that were true, we'd have to say Hitler was only a victim of his own destiny, and therefore blameless ... We have decisions to make, actions to take, good ones and bad ones that make up the texture of our lives. Everything we do or don't do matters ... Everything counts at the end of the day ... we have a pattern to make. We have to see it through, try to...more
have a small stack of books that makes up my reread shelf and every time I reread one it has to earn its place back on the shelf. I hadn't read this one in years and so I wasn't quite sure where it would fall. Pretty quickly in I knew it's place on the reread shelf was safe! Nora Roberts typically has one stand alone and one trilogy a year. Three Fates is kind of like a trilogy turned into a stand alone. There's an ensemble cast ...more
Yet their statues have been separated for ages. One was stolen, only to be saved by being lost forever at the bottom of the ocean, and two were passed on through generation. Yet the thread continues to spin, waiting to be measured, and cut. Waiting for the three Fates to reunite once again.
It will ...more
Review posted on Got Fiction? book blog
I really love Nora Roberts' PNR trilogies. Like a lot. There's very little info about this book, and she tends to have a lot of duologies and anthologies of her own books so I sort of made an educated guess that this was 3 books in one. It mentioned The Fates a few times in the first few pages, and I was happy enough to think I was getting a ParaNora.
I was sort of right? More to the wrong side.
This is set up in 3 parts-one for each Fate I guess. But it's...more
It starts with a thief named Felix Greenfield who is aboard the Lusitania. He enters the room of Henry W. Wyley and steals a little silver statue moments before the ship goes down. While on a mission to save only himself, he ends ...more
A note about Steamy: Three times the romances only came out to about twice the steam of a ...more
Anyways my friend recommended this one since it revolves around (I say that extremely loosely) Greek mythology and some nautical history. All in all, as expected the facts weren't all there but it was actually pretty entertaining.
At first I was really enjoying this book. The story started out in 1915 on the RMS Lusitania. The future characters and plot were setup on the ship(wreck), before the main story jumped to then modern day 2002.
The main characters started out okay, but as the story dragged on the betrayals, backstabbing, and bickering became overwhelming and I just could not take it anymore. I thought if I took some time away from the book that I could finish it, but ...more
Henry Wyley had the 1st Fate and a line on the 3rd. He was on his way to Ireland on board the Lusitania in 1915 when a German U-boat torpedoed it. The boat went down after Felix Greenfield had ...more
I do have to mention something that bugged me a bit about this book and others I've read from Ms. Roberts. One of the trademarks in many of her books seems to be--three impossibly gorgeous, sexy women and three impossibly handsome, rugged ...more
This time around the story hinges on a trio of statues, the Three Fates, named after the beings from Greek mythology. The statues have been separated over the centuries, and much ...more
I mark the length, but you use the time.
I cut the thread, for nothing should last forever.
Don't waste what you're given..."
"We can't escape fate, but we can do a great deal to carve our own mark in it, to turn it to our advantage, or disadvantage."
In this mythological romance by Nora Roberts we follow the journey of three small priceless statues as they haphazardly pass through history and certain families lives and shows us that everything is ...more
Honestly I more love Nora's other pen name book, J.D.Robb's In Death series, well at last she have a to-die-for-and-no-one-can-beat-him-in-my-heart hero, no need to tell what his name. (what, you don't know him? Alright, he is Roarke, *cough2*)
Based on her heritage from Ireland, so in this book Nora Roberts back to her patterns, to make Irish characters and live at Ireland, there are ...more
