Aislin Ferry and Jason Moros have only days until they will be called to account before the Keepers of the Afterlife. Yet as they race to restore order and make their case, their worlds fall into total disarray.
Mutiny within the fractured Ferry family threatens Aislin’s hold on power and role as Charon. Meanwhile, the fearsome Lord of the Kere has family trouble of his own. Someone is unraveling the fabric of fate, and Moros suspects one of his supernatural siblings is behind the terrible bid to unleash Chaos.
Now unlikely allies, Aislin and Moros each need the other to escape the wrath of the Keepers. As the stakes rise, it becomes clear that protecting their respective empires is not the endgame. With the fate of all humanity dangling by a thread, Aislin and Moros must surrender completely to one another if they are to fight their common enemy. And as time runs out, someone must make the ultimate sacrifice.

If you haven't read this series, then I would suggest going and getting the first book, Marked, and not reading this review. You can read the review that I wrote for Marked though! :) This is the 3rd (and final?) book in the series. A lot of stuff has happened in the first two books and you can bet that there are a lot of things happening in this one. Aislin Ferry has been left in charge of the reaper business that her father ran. She is not having an easy go of it. There are beings that shouldn't exist wreaking havoc all over the city and the Veil. Jason Moros is the Lord of the Kere and he is committed to helping Aislin but her family and colleagues do not trust him. Aislin has a different approach to him; she's intrigued by him and is even having thoughts of a relationship with him. I really like this series and I thought this was a great book and if it's the end of the series then it was a fun ride. I'm sad if it the end because I like these characters a lot and this story of reaping souls and delivering them to their end. There is a lot of action and suspense in this story and some romance thrown in as well. While I'm not a huge fan of the romance genre, there are times when it is necessary. This is one of those forbidden love type stories and those always make for a great read. I hope that the author brings back this series or at least some of the characters (maybe prequels or spin offs?). I would definitely read more about this world.
Fated by Sarah Fine is the third and final book in the Servants of Fate series. Aislin Ferry is the Charon and Jason Moros is the Lord of the Kere. A war is coming and they will have to work together to prevent it and the complete unraveling of the loom of fate. Moros’ knows that one of his sisters, Eris has turned against him, but he is not sure if any others have or not. What can be done to stop the rise of Chaos? Aislin is also experiencing mutiny within the Ferry family and company. It is going to take everyone working together against their enemies to protect themselves and humanity. But will everyone make it out alive? I am sure that the above summary does not make a lot of sense, unless you have to have read the other books in the series. If you have not read the other books, you will not understand what is happening in Fated. I did like seeing a different side of Jason Moros (a softer side) as well as Aislin. Eli, Cacia, Galena, and Declan all return in this novel to help with the ultimate fight. I did not enjoy Fated as much as the first book in the series. The ending was not unexpected or surprising. I give Fated 3.75 out of 5 stars. It is an interesting series, but it did not live up to its potential. Fated contain some explicit sex and extreme violence (fair warning). I received a complimentary copy of Fated from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Nine of ten published (although technically this book is not yet published). I haven't read Burn, but I've read all of her other published novels. Sarah Fine has yet to let me down! I read Marked in June, Claimed in July, and Fated in August! Each book has been my Pili-Pushed book for each month, so this one is August's Pili-Pushed novel! Aislinn Ferry has quite the mess to clean up - and figure out. As the new Charon, she is struggling to hold her power and keep the other Ferrys from overthrowing her. She and Jason Moros will be meeting with the Keepers of the Afterlife about the current situation. Rogue Kere, creatures they've never encountered, the reappearance of Rylan Ferry... there is a lot going on, and a lot that Aislinn and Moros don't know. Moros and Aislinn fight protect the Ferrys, the Kere, and the world, from a fate worse than death, Best. Book. Of. The. Series. Quite possibly Sarah's best book. Of Dreams and Rust was really, really good, and it's probably my favorite YA book of hers. Fated is my favorite adult one of Sarah's. That seems fair. This book broke my heart several times, but in the best, most painful, but best way! Not like Firewalker by Josephine Angelini (which I recently reviewed, hence the comparison). I'll start with Aislinn. I have to be honest, I wasn't her biggest fan in Marked or Claimed. I didn't hate her, but I didn't immediately like her. She wasn't the nicest to Cacy or Galena or Eli, so I wasn't sure I would like her in Fated. However, getting to read her perspective of things was so helpful. She can be seen as cold, but it makes sense, given the pressure of being Charon, saving the world, etc. I really like Aislinn! She can compartmentalize like a pro, and she is intelligent and prepared for everything, even when she's not. If that makes sense. Jason Moros! Thousands of years old, yet his Kere (and the world) are slipping through his fingertips, and everyone wants to blame him. I love this guy! He is a bit flirtatious, condescending, hilarious, determined, brave, and fair. Read the rest of my review on my blog, The Eater of Books! - eaterofbooks DOT blogspot DOT com :)
