~ 'One Fate be granted mortal man, used for evil or good as the inner voice directs. Alas, the divine spark draws the eyes of the Fates, the Second Fate sparingly gifted by their hands. Be warned offspring of the gods; guard your gifting well. For if the Third Fate be unleashed, the soul lays bare before one so touched by the gods.' ~
Cautious and quiet by nature, Paige Kinnell watches life unfold from the sidelines, maintaining her simple existence as a shield to hide behind. But underneath her shy, careful ways, Paige senses a disconnect with the world around her, indulging instead her ever curious interest in the legend and lore of time nearly forgotten.
One chance encounter with an ancient of the undead begins an unraveling of reality as Paige knows it, leaving her to sort through dreams and enchantments, discovering along the way that one's Fate can be mere illusion, and that the consequences of opening her heart to another may cost dearly.
Cael Maccinnis, the handsome Highlander she's met, seems the answer to every unspoken longing of her heart, even as he awakens dark, secret desires buried within her soul. As strange and unnerving changes begin occurring in her mind and body, Paige has no choice but to face her life's unnatural turn and confront the frightening implications. For within Paige's past a secret lay dormant, hidden even from her. This truth, guarded well and wielded by the Fates themselves, becomes the catalyst invoking the power of The Third Fate.
I must say that I liked this book. At first there were a couple places that were a little confusing, but as I read further into the book the author began pulling me into the story. I really loved the “love story” between Cael and Page, it was sweet and never felt forced. I liked it and was able to relate to most of the characters in the book, however that being said I would have really loved if the author spent a little more time developing the secondary characters and their stories. I was a little disappointed with the ending of the book, not because it did not end well, but I felt that the part of the book where the good guys face off with the bad guys was a little rushed. I think this story would have been better if that part of the book was a little more drawn out. All in all I must admit that The Third Fate was an entertaining read.
