Victoria struggles with her self to decide between love and money, as well as in how to set Spyro free from him code of ethics. Fit for Fate contains all of the elements needed for a wonderful tale of mystery, romance and knowledge. There is a lot to be said for Greek history and way of life that shines through this novel. Eugene Aubrey Stratton has created the perfect background for a plot that will grip the reader and leave them wondering just how much political power one man can be given, and how many forces are against the government of a country. With strong characters, Fit for Fate comes across to the reader as a mind-boggling story that reeks of havoc. Mr. Stratton has used his knowledge of Greece and their culture to create a novel that will stick in the minds of readers from any culture. Set in modern Athens, the setting gives you a feeling of a tour guide. As Marilyn gets a tour of the country, the reader sees the scenery through the eyes of a naive young woman. My lack of knowledge of Greece made this novel all the more interesting as I learned about the culture and political intrigue of a country I would love get to know more about. I would highly recommend this novel to any lover of Greece, Political war or opera.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
