It seems that the “dystopian” view on the world really is one of the few book style (together with historic novels) that I have to be very careful in choosing. I just finished Sarah Fine’s “Servants of Fate” books – Marked, Claimed and Fated. Drawn in by the interesting plot I started reading but felt it hard to connect to the characters. While the writing is good and flawless, I somehow could not understand certain parts of this world that Ms. Fines drew for the readers. I am not sure what the reason is that it is easy for me to follow a book with a paranormal creature in a contemporary setting , yet so very hard to imagine anything in a dystopian setting.Still the plot kept me going and finishing and Fans of Dystopian worlds will surely truly love this book I believe. So please do not hesitate to read this book if you’re a Fan as the writing and storyline is very good.

I loved Sarah Fine's Guards of the Shadowlands series, so I was excited to see that she had written an Adult Paranormal series as well! I really enjoyed the premise of this one and learning about the Ferrys and Kers. I've always been a bit obsessed with mythology as well as the underworld. The Persephone myth is always a favorite, as well as Dante's Inferno, and more. In Marked Cacia (Cacy) Ferry and her family can traverse back and forth through the veil, which separates the living from the dead. It is their job to ferry souls into the afterlife. It is the job of the Kers to mark humans for death, getting their assignments from the Fates, the sisters of Moros, the leader of the Kers. Moros and the Ferrys have a rather uneasy understanding between them. I really love that the line between good and evil is really blurred here. Just because a Ker marks humans for death, doesn't necessarily mean they are evil. The same goes for being a Ferry. Just because they guide souls to their afterlife doesn't make them good either. The Ferry family is a powerful one in Boston and their names are well known throughout the city. Cacy and her brother Declan both work as paramedics, trying to save lives- not just sending the dead through the portal to their afterlife. It gives them a purpose and I liked how much their job meant to them. Cacy is assigned a new partner named Eli, who has just moved to Boston with his older sister, Galena, who is working as a scientist. Galena has been through some pretty heavy stuff so Eli is quite overprotective of her. It's really sweet and shows you what a good guy he is. I loved him from the start, so naturally I was rooting for him and Cacy to get together. I really liked Cacy and Eli's relationship. Fine certainly knows how to build up the tension between them and there were parts I wanted to scream because I couldn't stand Cacy pulling away from him. She has been afraid to fall in love, especially after her last relationship didn't work out so well. I understand her fears, but she is missing out on this amazing guy! As this is an adult novel, Fine does incorporate some very sexy scenes into the novel and they worked so well with Cacy and Eli's passionate relationship. I will say this about Fine. She isn't afraid to pull a fast one on you. There's a pretty huge turn of events in this book, and I was terrified to see how she would resolve it. This is a series, so we do not get a definitive ending. The next book focuses more on Galena and Declan, but I don't think Cacy and Eli's story is quite over yet. I am really looking forward to seeing where Fine takes us next, especially after everything that happened in this book! You are in for quite the ride in this one- as I said earlier, good versus evil isn't cut and dry and I didn't know who to trust for a good portion of the book! I love Fine's writing style and I couldn't turn the pages fast enough to find out what was going to happen next!

**I received an ARC of this story in exchange for an honest review Cacy was a ferry. The veil is a window to the afterlife. Cacy's father, Patrick Ferry, took her into the veil and told her it was time for her to understand the family business. Eli and Galena Margolis are siblings. They were refugees from the West. They have an apartment waiting for them because of Galena. She has a high importance because of her research. Eli was starting a new job at the EMS station. Declan Ferry was the chief there. Patrick Ferry was the CEO of Psychopomps and had announced his retirement. Rylan, Dec and Cacy's brother, was the new CEO. Cacy was a paramedic and Eli's new partner. Galena had a faculty position in the Harvard University in the immunology department. Eli's work was his haven. Cacy and Eli went on an emergency call where Cacy's father and employees had been attacked. Eli tried but couldn't save Cacy's dad. The other paramedics blamed Eli for not doing enough. Cacy was not the princess she could've been. Instead she kept risking her life to save injured & sick people. I found Cacy to be brave, honest, humane and she had a heart. She also had spirit and honor. Eli was a very loyal man. He was also brave and caring. He loved his sister very deeply but he felt guilt from an incident when she was attacked. This was a very good book. I'd recommend it to anyone who likes Paranormal stories.

So the book starts off in a post apocalyptic setting. The only thing I didn't really like was that it didn't really explain how the world got that way. I am guessing many things happened like disease, war, famine, and weather changes; for the world to get that way but it didn't really state how. The story is set in Boston and part of the city is covered in water. It was interesting reading about amphibious vehicles you don't see that kind of thing in many stories. This seems like the only real way to travel since most of the streets are under water but there are still streets above water level which makes traveling all of one way tricky.  I personally liked Cacy's character. She is tough and doesn't back down when challenged no matter how scared she is on the inside. The cover does a really good job of showing exactly what the scopes look like. When reading this that is the image I pictured in my mind. Again here she goes into the in between and helps souls go to heaven or hell, I wish there was a little bit more known about this in between place or about the shades. The plot touched on it a little bit but maybe they don't know much about them. I also liked Eli he is a very down to earth character and very sweet but if you mess with anyone he cares about, watch out! I have to write a special section just on Moros because I am highly intrigued by him. I am hoping he gets his own book because I would love to know more about him and the way he thinks. He is king of the Kere which are basically like reapers they put the mark of death on a person when they die a family member of the Ferrys help that person cross over. The last chapter was from Moros point of view and I can't wait to see more. Everyone fears him since his touch is deadly but I can't wait for someone to stand up to him and be his equal. He talks about his sisters who are the fates and that they are the only ones that can hug him, which made me sad for him so I hope there is more for Moros in the next books. Another thing I really liked was the mythology twisted into this book. The fates are mentioned and we even get to see a chapter with them and Moros. I love when books have a mythological aspect to the story the fates cousins are also mentioned a bit at the end so there might be even more to come.  So far on Goodreads I see there are to be three books in this series. The second book Claimed is about Galena who is Eli's sister and Declan who is Cacy's brother. I do plan on reading this next book soon because man that plot twist I did not even see that coming. I thought it was going to go one way but it ended up going another, I did wonder if it would but my initial thought was wrong.

Marked (Servants of Fate Book One) by Sarah Fine is a unique paranormal book. Cacia Sybil Mara Ferry or Cacy is a paramedic by date and a “Ferry” in her off time. Her family escorts the newly dead to the Afterlife. People are “marked” by Kere’s. When the person dies, the Ferry’s escort them to either Heaven or Hell depending upon the person’s Fate. The book takes place far into the future and the world has suffered from environmental disasters and disease. There is a lot crime and not enough police, fire fighters, or paramedics. Cacy lives in Boston and her family is privileged. Eli and Galena Margolis are just moving to Boston. They are amazed at all the wonderful conveniences available to them (like running water). Eli is a paramedic and Galena is a scientist who is working on fighting the different bacteria’s that are killing humans. Cacy and Eli are instantly attracted to each other but there are many complications standing in the way of their being together (as a couple and not just as co-workers). I was not sure if I would like this book or not, and I ended up enjoying it. It is a very interesting premise with the Ferry’s, Kere’s, and Fates and a future where modern conveniences are not taken for granted. I give it 3.75 stars out of 5. Claimed is the next book in the series and will be out on March 24, 2015. Happy Reading!
