Synopsis Set two years after the events in Tattoo, Bailey and her friends are getting ready to graduate from high school and move on with their lives. Unfortunately, Bailey is not ready to move on, or away from her friends. Plus, everything is complicated by her work as a Fate and the quickly approaching Reckoning. Can she find a balance in her life? Review This novel was at least as enjoyable as the first novel. I really enjoyed the fact that Bailey's friends would get mad at her for "moping" as many teen novels really focus on the angsty side of life. The new characters were interesting, though I found some of the references to Greek and Roman mythology to be a bit confusing and muddled in this installment. My Recommendation This book is great for tweens, there are no questionable elements like sex, drugs, or rock'n'roll. 3/5

I was cruising books on my BN Nook and got curious. It's surprisingly good and I recommend this read. (I had already read the first book too. Both very well written.)

I expect a lot in the future of this author. I look forward to seeing if this series continues and what becomes of the enthralling characters.

I recommend for anyone who wishes to read this to read the first book, Tattoo by Jennifer Lynn Barnes. This book was fairly good. Their was only one real fault to it in my opinion. But I'll talk about that later. First I would like to say that Jennifer did an amazing job in this sequel it just as good as Tattoo in the fact that the characters are well described and the dialog is well written. Tattoo was a interesting book that was a real page turner and I was happy to read a sequel and have the four best friends continue their journey of otherwordly events. Even though they've grown up I can still picture them as I did two years ago when I read Tattoo. Even though it's been Tattoo I still have their first book adventure in my mind (this shows you how one book can really stick with you if it's well described or well written). Now the fault with this book is that I found the love realtionship between Bailey and Alec not really developed good enough. It wasn't that it was two rushed it was more like it didn't have enough time to develop. So by the end of the book it not developed enough *in my opinion* which left a really not-so-great-ending. I found reading this book was very hard to read at times and I couldn't finish it in one sitting. It took me a week to read this book. I found I read a bit slower so I could understand what was going on. Why I recommend for people to read the first book first is because even though I read the original I still have forgotten things which are mention in here and aren't completely explain and can seem confusing. They were to me. Anyways on my scale this book deserves a 3 star rating. Don't get me wrong this was a absolutely good sequel for such a well done book like Tattoo.

Fate by Jennifer Lynn Barnes, the second book of the Tattoo series, begins with Bailey back as the Third Fate, the Fate of Life. She is told by the other two Fates that her Reckoning would begin that night. Morgan visits Bailey and her friends at the mall, once again, and this time her gifts are mirrored pendants for each of them. Bailey doesn't know what her Reckoning entails but eventually she learns that it involves making a choice that can affect her for eternity. Bailey and her friends meet immortals, some nice and some not so nice. The sense of humor and loyalty are brought into the sequel to Tattoo and make Fate a charming read , 5 stars!

I picked up this book a long time ago, not realizing that it was a sequel to Tattoo. I honestly picked it up because of the pretty cover. I didn't read it right after finishing Tattoo, so I honestly didn't remember what had happened in the previous story. I'm not sure if that lapse in between stories contributed to my inability of get into this story. I honestly almost gave up on this book a couple of times. I felt like it had a hard time getting past the Sidhe background. It was long and drawn out. The action was reserved for the last little bit of the book. It really wasn't enough to make the book really worthwhile to seek out. I did like how the ending turned out. The Sidhe were trying to make Bailey play by their rules, when they didn't really apply to her. She something entirely different, so she should be an exception to the rules. I also enjoyed how the Sidhe represented different gods/goddesses throughout history. I enjoy when a book can take different views from different cultures and wrap them into one story that makes sense. I would probably pass on this book unless you enjoy other books by Barnes, or have all ready read Tattoo.
