Heed this warning, mortal: stay far away from the three sister Fates. For if they come to love you, they might bring about the end of the world…
Chloe is the youngest. Hers are the fingers that choose the wool, that shape the thread, that begin it. The sun smiles upon her. Men love her without knowing who she is. She has lived forever and will live forever more. She and her sisters have been on their isolated Greek island for centuries, longer than any mortal can remember. They spin, measure, and slice the countless golden threads of human life. They are the three Fates, and they have stayed separate for good reason: it is dangerous for them to become involved with the humans whose lives they shape.
So when a beautiful girl named Aglaia shows up on their doorstep, Chloe tries to make sure her sisters don’t become attached. But in seeking to protect them, Chloe discovers the dark power of Aglaia’s destiny. As her path unwinds, the three Fates find themselves pulled inextricably along—toward mortal pain, and mortal love, and a fate that could unravel the world.
I received this book for free from Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
They spin and spin until one day a young girl stepped into their lives. That’s when everything changes. I knew from the start that the girl, Aglaia is shady. Who has a name like that anyway? HAHA but anyway, I was pretty interested in the story, quite submerged in it actually. I was wondering what that dark power was, so I kept on reading. But I can’t help but notice that Chloe is just SO. FREAKING. ARROGANT. And it’s not the charming arrogant kind. It’s more like the OHMYGOD I WANT TO SLAP YOUR FACE arrogant. My God, she was just so rude and so arrogant, with that know-it-all attitude. 🙁 I remembered reading up to 70% and thinking, when is this girl gonna face reality and just stop being so know-it-all?
But other than that, I actually enjoyed the book. I have to admit, the ending kinda confused me a little bit because I was there like trying to catch up with whatever that was happening. But that is actually both a good thing and a bad thing. It’s a good thing because, wow the words being used to describe are really really good. It’s also a bad thing because my vocabulary is quite limited HAHAHAHAH so I was quite confused.
So yeah. Yeah.
