Review: Fated by Sarah Fine

Title: Fated
Author: Sarah Fine
Series: Book Three in the Servants of Fate Trilogy
Published By: 47North (Spetember 29, 2015)
Source: ARC Copy Provided by the Publisher (in exchange for an honest review)
Genre: Urban Fantasy
My Rating: 4 Stars!


Book Description:
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. 









Even though I have loved this series from the very first book, it is this book, this last chapter, that I have been eagerly awaiting the most. 

After all, how could I resist finally getting to look inside the very mind of the infamous Moros?

Quite simply put, I couldn't. 

Ms. Fine has always been known for her amazing writing abilities. For the unique, and often times dark, worlds that she creates but she truly came up with something so original, unworldly, and fascinating with this series. Something that stands out in a genre where the same is common place. 

I can say without a doubt, that this was my favorite of the series. I adored Aislin and Moros so much in this story, and believe me, I never thought I would say that I liked Aislin. She has never been my favorite character but once again, Ms. Fine showed how incredible her writing skills by completely making me change my opinion of someone I never thought I would care about and making me completely invested in her happily ever after. 

This is such an amazing fantasy series woven with mythology, romance, danger, and so much more. I truly have had an amazing time with it and I'm so sad that it is over but I couldn't be happier with the way it all came together and ended. 

I look forward to whatever Fine comes out with next because I know it will be something spectacular and fun and something I won't want to miss.

  3. Now that I'm able to read UF a little now and again I'm going to have to check her out. That's so awesome that the last was the best. I always worry when a series ends.

  4. YES! I loved this one as well and I was so excited to get to be in his mind! And I was surprised by how much I liked Aislynn too because I didn't really care for her in the previous books.
    I can't wait to see what more Sarah comes up with. :)

  7. How is it that I've never felt any desire to read this trilogy, when I love Sarah and her work so, so much? My mind works in mysterious ways sometimes. In any case, you've changed my mind. I think I actually own book one.

  13. I love writers who present you with one side of a character, manipulate your feelings negatively and then change your mind! Odd that, but I do enjoy it. Yes, I do need to read this series.
