Fatesby Lanie Bross
Synopsis: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?
All Corinthe, the first Fallen Fate in history, wants is to return home to Pyralis and her sister Fates. Sent to Humana (Earth) for her curiosity and losing a marble of fate over the waterfall, she is given a new responsibility as an Executor and must help humans to complete their unfulfilled destinies. Luc is a star athlete trying to figure out what he really wants while keeping his little sister, Jasmine, safe (mostly from herself). When the two finally meet, they both feel an instant attraction that is hard to ignore but shortly after their encounter Corinthe is given her last task to complete that will allow her to return home to Pyralis: kill Luc. With doubts setting in Corinthe tries to complete this last task and as Luc fights for his life, both make a crazy leap off an abandoned building sending the story, Luc, and Corinthe into full blown fantasy. Traveling different worlds as well as the crossroads that connect all of the worlds together, Luc and Corinthe call an uneasy truce in order to save Jasmine who was lured to the world of the Blood Nymphs and is slowly becoming one of them. Fates is a story full of mystery and wonder. Bross has created an unforgettable story filled with many different worlds each one more imaginative than the last. As the story progresses, Corinthe starts to grow and slowly becomes more human causing her to question everything that she has ever been taught. Can a person change their destiny or is everything fated? Readers will have to wait for the sequel which comes out spring 2015 to find out.
