One moment. One foolish desire. One mistake. And Corinthe lost everything.
She fell from her tranquil life in Pyralis Terra and found herself exiled to the human world. Her punishment? To make sure people's fates unfold according to plan. Now, years later, Corinthe has one last assignment: kill Lucas Kaller. His death will be her ticket home.
But for the first time, Corinthe feels a tingle of doubt. It begins as a lump in her throat, then grows toward her heart, and suddenly she feels like she is falling all over again--this time for a boy she knows she can never have. Because it is written: one of them must live, and one of them must die. In a universe where every moment, every second, every fate has already been decided, where does love fit in? Add to (Goodreads)
Fates sounds pretty amazing to me, and has some of my favorite elements: mythology, a urban setting (San Francisco), and destined romance.
The book describes it as: "a girl who is not human must bring about the death of the boy she loves, or risk banishment from her home forever."
I love that it's about fate vs free will, and that the characters supposedly travel multiverses to be with each other. I'm excited to check out this debut novel by Lanie Bross!
