Meet the Author

Rachel Firasek grew up in the south and despite the gentle pace, she harassed life at full steam. Her curiosity about mythology, human nature, and the chemical imbalance we call love led her to writing. Her stories began with macabre war poems and shifted to enchanted fairytales, before she settled on a blending of the two.


Today you’ll find her tucked on a small parcel of land, surrounded by bleating sheep and barking dogs, with her husband and children. She entertains them all with her wacky sense of humor or animated reenactments of bad 80’s dance moves.


She’s intrigued by anything unexplained and seeks the answers to this crazy thing we call life. You can find her where the heart twists the soul and lights the shadows… or at rachelfirasek.com

    Excellent start!



    When I first learned of the "Unspun Trilogy", I was stoked to read it based on the concept alone. I'm happy to say Creating Fate did not disappoint! I really liked Chloe - her struggle to deal with the loss of the human she loved and her guilt at being attracted to another. The fact that both Chloe and Dane were determined to protect the other was also a good touch. All in all, a great start to the series.

    NOTE: I also posted this review on Goodreads.

    It’s no secret that I love Greek myth and endeavor to read

    It’s no secret that I love Greek myth and endeavor to read any and all books covering the subject, so when I heard about Creating Fate, I jumped right on it. The concept of a series of three novellas called Unspun featuring the three Fates and their various love interests grabbed me and I immediately purchased myself a copy of this book and read it in one sitting. It wasn’t exactly what I hoped for, but I didn’t dislike it. It just wasn’t developed enough for me, nor was it very believable romance-wise.

    In general, not much happened in terms of setting the reader up to believe that Chloe (the Fate goddess Clotho) and Dane (the love interest) could fall madly in love with each other in like, a day. I’m down with the love-at-first-sight fairytale business when it comes to romance novels as long as it’s believable. For some reason, I didn’t believe it. Maybe it was because at first Chloe wanted nothing to do with Dane because she was still mourning the death of her previous love, but in the course of a few hours, she was sleeping in the same bed with him, sans a single article of clothing. But to be fair, I have seen this done before in romance books and totally loved the fact that they cut the BS and got right to the romance. I know it would’ve worked here if the characters had been more developed and I had been more invested in what happened to them. But as it stands, I’m not.

    With that said, the cover was gorgeous and the writing and editing was very, very good. There was a little bit of humor, action and adventure, and you get to meet a few other Greek gods that you may be familiar with (I, of course, was). I wished I could’ve seen Chloe use more of her goddess powers, but she has two sisters, Lachesis and Atropos (who is my favorite Fate), so I’m sure I’ll get my fill of mythical magic with their books. And yes, I’m reading the entire Unspun series. Creating Fate is definitely worth a read if you want something quick and romantic (though the romance seems forced). I’m interested to see what happens in Stealing Fate and Chasing Fate.

    As a rule, I try to avoid romance novels. First of all, they&rsq

    As a rule, I try to avoid romance novels. First of all, they’re just not my bag. Give me action, blood and guts, sci-fi … hell, give me a restaurant menu, and I’ll probably enjoy it more than a romance novel.

    Second, most romance novels aren’t written for me. That’s fine. I’m not the target audience and I don’t feel slighted in the least. Well … perhaps a little … but that’s neither here nor there. I’m sure if more men purchased romance novels, there’d be a whole slew of books written for them. Until then, nothing’s going to change.

    Most of all, though, I avoid romance novels for one big reason: the little voice in my head that insists I could teach that male character a thing or two about romance in the ‘real’ world. But since it isn’t a fair competition—he’s in the book and I’m not—I’m going to take my ball and go home.

    LOL

    The truth is, I picked up this novella for one reason: I love Rachel Firasek. No, I don’t mean “love” love (we’re both married to other people, so that would be kinda awkward … although it’s probably been the storyline for many a romance novel, huh?) I mean love love (which is not to be confused with love “love” or even “love love” and don’t get me started on italics).

    Anyway, Rachel is several hundred kinds of awesome and I’ve been dying to read her stuff—but there’s one problem: all that frakkin’ romance. It literally makes my skin crawl. No joke. I just typed the word and I’m itchy and twitchy and scratching like a meth addict. (Apologies to meth addicts everywhere for the humor at their expense.)

    I believe in the power of stretch goals, so, when “Creating Fate” was released, I said “f**k it” and bought the damn thing. Seriously, I actually said “f**k it” out loud, as if I was speaking to someone else, although I was the only person in the room.

    That was not a unique occurrence, so think what you will of me. The point is that I faced my fears and came out on top!

    Imagine what’s next!

    So, I’ve managed to get several hundred words into this review without talking about the book. Pretty amazing.

    I really liked the book. I didn’t need to know about the size of Dane’s package, but boy would I love to try out the whole “You need this sex” line to a grieving woman! That’s my kinda romance … although I have to believe it would end much differently in my world than it did in Rachel’s.

    It lends new meaning to the term Great Dane. Haha!

    Seriously, in “Creating Fate,” Rachel shows why she’s such a successful writer with such amazing fans. She whips mythology, action, romance, and humor into a killer of a story. I’m still not a romance fan, but I am a Rachel Firasek fan.

    Wonderful Fantasy Romance!

    If you were Zeus and one of your daughters, who happened to be one of the Fates, had her heart broken and refused to ever return to Earth, what would you do? Maybe you would contrive a mission for her to find her sisters, who just happen to be on Earth. Enter Dane, an undercover cop working his last great sting. He’s sexy, hot, kind of pushy and arrogant in a completely disarming way and he stirs things in Chloe that she never thought could happen again, so of course she is prickly and snarky, which seems to draw him in more! Their banter is to die for, teasing and tense and just plain fun to read!

    Creating Fate proves once again that Rachel Firasek must love her job! She creates reading with warmth, spice and humor, all mashed up with her own style and attitude! Her characters are charming, sexy and know how to deal with the action Ms. Firasek gives them! She knows the chemistry a heroine needs in her hero!

    :)

    This is a very sweet love story. Chloe is the fate of life who is too heart broken to create life till she meets her true love. The only problem i have would be that the story is just to short.

    Creating Fate was full of action and romantic anticipation mixed

    Creating Fate was full of action and romantic anticipation mixed in with a little humor. I love that this story is based on the fates with this book concentrating on Chloe, the fate of life. Chloe has just lost the love of her life and then Dane comes into the picture. She immediately feels attracted to him and that would be my one complaint. For having just lost her love, she starts having feelings for Dane awfully quick. I know, I know, it's a short story so things need to happen quick, but it took some of the believability away for me. With that being said, Dane is easy to love. Creating Fate by Rachel Firasek  was provided to me by the author for review. The opinions are my own.

    cr Creating Fate

    This has to be one of the most awful books I have ever read. The best word to describe it would be disgusting. Also, the characters are so fake, and stupid. One minute the girl is crying on the bus because she lost her boyfriend and the next minute she is looking at a guys crotch. It did not suprise me when they ended up getting together. Usually i don't mind a little sex in books because that is how the real world is but i do not want to read every little detail. I felt like i was reading porn, not a romance. This book did teach me one thing, that is why it has one star and because i feel bad writing this, but never judge a book by its cover. Its sad because i was excited to read it.

    Major confusing typo!

    Main character is introduced as Clotho. Pages later her name becomes Chloe. Very disconcerting. I had to go back to see if I was crazy.

    Good book

    I really enjoyed the book although I wish some things had been a little better explained/written. It was a novella though and over all I thought it was a really good read.
