Overview

McKenna Fin is armed, dangerous, and in love for the first time. She'll do anything to earn her humanity... except the one thing the Fate's require.

Stuck in her senior year of high school until she earns her humanity, McKenna Fin is responsible for cutting the lifethread of demons, and protecting teens from being possessed. To celebrate her fiftieth year of apprenticeship to the Fate Atropos, McKenna is given a new responsibility, and possibly a quick way to earn her humanity-severing the lifethread of deserving humans. Her first assignment: Nathan Quinn.

When Nathan becomes a primary demon target and gets sucked into Tartania, McKenna's duty as a Fated priestess demands she follow. McKenna can rescue him, no problem, but then she'd have to cut his lifethread. And he's the one and only guy she's been attracted to since forever.

The demons consider Nathan one of their own and fight to keep him. The time limit on Nathan's life is about to run out, and McKenna has to make the decision: sever his lifethread, or battle demons, defy the Fates, and keep him for her own.

Meet the Author

I wrote my first book when I was eight...on pink construction paper with a purple crayon. It was a romance that involved a princess, and although I remember very few details about the plot, I do remember that it was illustrated and there was music and dancing involved.

At about the same time I penned my first story, I discovered Nancy Drew and my love for reading was born. It has only grown over the years, and I am rarely without a huge to-be-read stack, and a book within easy reach.

Now days I write women's fiction and young adult novels. All of my stories combine romance, mystery, and paranormal elements. Guess I haven't ever outgrown my early reading adventures with Nancy, Ned, Bess and George.

I live in the frozen north with my husband, whose TBR stack is taller than mine, and two felines who have been known to add entire pages to a manuscript without telling me.

    Great Read!!!

    Can't wait for the next in the series...Having never read anything from from LJ Charles before I wasn't sure what to expect and I was very happy with this book.. I found it engaging, exciting, suspenseful and thrilling..with just enough romance to remind me how great young love can be.

    I really look forward to the next adventure of Fates... Shea, Merritt and McKenna (my personal favorite) have great energy and their characters have just the right balance of teenage and ancient wisdom.

    Check this book out .. you won't be disappointed!

    This may be a YA book and I know teens will love it, but don't pass on it because you're not a teen! I didn't think I'd enjoy a book about teenagers and demons but boy howdy was I wrong.
    Excellent fresh writing. Fast paced and great humor!

    Couldn't put it down

    I bought and read Lifethread after reading the intriguing blurb and learning that mythology is intertwined with the paranormal. I was quickly drawn to the heroine McKenna despite her being a teenager. The story is fast paced and held my attention. I enjoyed all of the plot twists and the humor. I've always liked novels with strong family relationships, which in this book comes from the relationships between the priestesses. Since reading her first book I've purchased the second in the trilogy, Creation, and two other books written by Charles. Great read!

    A Fun Short Story

    A great companion book to go with the original Lifethread. This answers some questions from Lifethread and revisits the characters we already know. Check it out!

    Highly Recommended

    Love, love, love the book. I really like the writing style, and can't wait for the next one. Who'd a thunk I could do demons? A first for me, but won't be the last!!
