Broken Fate based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
This book was just what I needed, with a great storyline, compelling and complex characters. The words flow from the pages, creating a world where the fates are living in our world, going to school while, tending their duty to Zeus. I've always had a penchant for the God's of Olympus, and I'll be getting the next book in this series asap. I loved that the emotional growth Sophie, or Atropos as she was known by the ancient Greeks, as she spent time with Alex. Alex, his life has been a rough one, but Sophie brings him something to distract him from the problems he can't run away from. Their relationship builds slowly, and I loved how he never lost his humour or charm, but will fate give them a happy future? ‘Oft have I heard that grief softens the mind, And makes it fearful and degenerate; Think therefore on revenge and cease to weep.’” - Shakespeare. I think this sums up how I feel, at the end of book 1, and l can't wait to read book 2. Highly recommended
What a great story! The author does a wonderful job of making Sophie (Atropos) pass off as a teenager when in fact she's a three thousand year old goddess. Sophie is serious but has her moments of hilarity. Alex has a losing battle against him: he has a short shelf like by way of terminal illness. It's a cruel joke played on both of them but they make the best of it. I love their shared love of reading, and of exploring abandoned places. This book made me laugh, got me teary eyed, angry, and dying (no pun intended) to get my hands on the next book.
