Sisters of Fate #1 Foretold

Presenting Sisters of Fate #1 Foretold by Rinda Elliott.

Here is the summary of the book:

It is written that three Sisters of Fate have the power to change the world's destiny. But only if they survive...

The Lockwood triplets have had the prophecy drummed into their heads since birth. Still, Raven, the eldest of the sisters, can't believe it's really happening. She's the reincarnation of a Norse goddess? One of the sisters is destined to die? When it starts snowing in summer in Florida, the sisters fear the worst has come to pass. Ragnarok, the Norse end of the world, has begun.

Raven finds herself the secret protector of Vanir, a boy with two wolves, a knowledge of Norse magic and a sense of destiny he can't quite explain. He's intense, sexy and equally determined to save her when it becomes clear someone is endangering them. Raven doesn't know if getting closer to him will make a difference in the coming battle, but her heart isn't giving her a choice.

Ahead of the sisters is the possibility of death at the hand of a warrior, death by snow, death by water or death by fire.

Or even from something else...

Sisters of Fate

The prophecy doesn't lie: one is doomed to die.

Fantastic. Riveting. A certified page-turner. Thrilling and romantically sexy. Foretold by Rinda Elliott is the first book in the Sisters of Fate series and a marvelous kick-starter to the marvelous series. I tend to take tiles from Harlequin Teen at face value, simply because their stories have never let me down, also because the cover is eye grabbing for us to pick it up. So I requested it from netgalley and...... definitely not disappointed at all.

With the majority of Greek/ Roman Mythology centered YA stories, you don't see many of them about Norse myths at all. So that is one of the major points of this book. If that wasn't enough, Elliott's unique and almost lyrical penmanship is a plus. Couple it with the myth of Ragnarok, the Norse end of the world prophecy, a fast paced and riveting plot, and strong characters.... and the result is one killer amazing book to cherish and love.

Three warriors carrying the souls of major Norse Gods. Raven, Coral and Kat, our resident 'Sisters of Fate', the triplets carrying the souls of the three Norns and the sneaky trickster God running around causing havoc and the sweet and fiercely passionate romance between Raven and Vanir..... Oh tingling all over..... Foretold is surely one of the best reads of this year.

Raven and Vanir made quite the pair. From their accidental meeting to them falling irrevocably in love with each other, while dealing with the chaos and the coming apocalypse and stopping the culprit, and of course those sneaky moments of intense passion. They carried the plot forward their actions and I loved them for it. Both were loyal, stubborn, determined, passionate individuals. They knew as they tried to figure out what was happening that they even would give their lives, if it meant that their loved ones were safe.

Adorably sweet and passionately sexy. These two were made for each other. Raven's inner turmoil throughout regarding the culprit and the conviction to save Vanir against all odds was commendable. Vanir too wasn't far behind, his coming into his Norse Godly powers and his intense journey with Raven, whom he may know but still persistent enough to be kept safe from any harm was a marvel to observe. Then of course Forecast boosts of a thrilling tale to support such strong characters. Intense, page-turner with surprising instances of twists & turns in the mix and this series debut just pulls off that 5/5 stars it gets. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT.

  1. Great review. This one is new to me and I like the premise. I haven't read anything about Norse myth so I'm intrigued.
