Fates (Fates #1)
by Lanie Bross
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?
Corinthe made a mistake and lost her life in Pyralis Terra. She must live in the human world and make sure people get the fate they are planned for. She has lived for years doing what she is told to do until she meets Lucas. He makes her feel different thoughts and if that wasn't bad enough her next assignment is to kill him. If she does it she gets her old life back. What she doesn't know is someone else has a plan and plans to use her to fulfill it. She has to decide if love or her old life is more important. One of them has to die and one must live or it could change the universe.
I saw the cover of this book and fell in love. I read the blurb and thought ok this could be as good as the cover. When you read a lot of books your always looking for something different to stand out to you. This one just didn't quite make it to the great point for me. It is just ok book for me. The main reason is the main character Corinthe. Where she could be such a great one for me she just fell flat. For one she made a mistake and is punished to the human world to make up for it. It was the first mistake she had ever made. All she wants it to get back to her own place and while she has in a way helped many people die because it is their fate she has a problem when it comes to Lucas. She has to kill him her self and that she doesn't want to do that. She just seems so Blah for most of the book. Lucas one minute you feel sorry for him, the next you see he can be a huge jerk. I just didn't like him much either but for the fact he will do anything for his sister. He is loyal to her. There is some danger as they face a few things trying to get to Pyralis Terra. I just had a hard time connecting to this book and the characters. While some may like it for me it was just ok.
