Waiting on Wednesday (8): Fates by Lanie Bross

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event held by Jill at Breaking the Spine where we spotlight upcoming releases we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pick:

Fates (Fates #1) by Lanie Bross
Expected Publication Date: February 11th, 2014
Publisher: Delacorte Press
Genre: Fantasy, Mythology, YA

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?

My Thoughts

I love it when authors take mythology and give it a modern twist. This story looks so interesting as it ties in the idea of the Greek fates and how they control the lives and destinies of people. It should turn out to be a good YA fantasy. Guess we'll have to wait and see...
