Katriel Lockwood, known as Kat, is one of three, triplets with the soul of a Norn inside them (the Norse version of the fates). Seperated from her sisters for the first time ever, Kat has gone to find her warrior, even if the prophecy says that he might kill her. When she meets Arun, Kat discovers the opposite to herself. Where she's mouthy and not trusting, he's opening and patient, and yet there's something about him that draws her to him, not only does she want to protect him, but she wants him too. With the prophecy of her or one of her sister's deaths playing on her mind, particularly because of the nightmares that she has, Kat is dreading the final battle and when it comes, there are surprises for everyone...
Firstly I'd like to say that I love the cover! All three covers in the series have been good, but I think this one is my favourite. I really like how the covers fit in with the stories as well, and they don't have couples on. I think this is great, because though there is romance in all three books that's not the centre of the story, the Lockwood sisters are, and that comes across in the books.
Kat's story was a bit faster paced than her sisters', which was necessary because you don't just have her meeting Arun and dealing with the world getting worse, but there's the actual battle, after a reunion with her sisters that is. Saying that I didn't think the pacing was too fast, in fact it really made me want to keep reading and know how everything ended, not that that was quite the way I was expecting, but it was a good ending all the same.
I said in my review of Forecast that I had a theory about the whole 'his hand to the death of a Norn' prophecy (though my reviews of Foretold and Forecast haven't actually been published yet) and for once when predicting these things I was wrong. Though I very much liked the way that the author brought this about, I thought that it worked well with the mythology used.
There was a lot more about the Gods souls, and Loki's plan, revealed in this book, mainly because there were more charactders around with them. This made the Lockwood sisters' place make more sense and it was interesting to see them all interacting with each other. Though at a few points I did struggle to remember who was who (though I think that was me!)
I really enjoyed the action scenes as well, and the fact that the girls didn't want to stand by while people fought for them, I don't think that would have sat right with any of their characters anyway! The evolution of the boys powers, well and the girls for that matter, worked well and I liked the way it tied into the crescendo.
I've really enjoyed this series! Well worth the read!

It is written that three Sisters of Fate have the power to change the world’s destiny.
But only if they survive…
Kat Lockwood grew up listening to her unhinged mother’s stories about the Norse goddess souls she and her triplet sisters carry, about fiery deaths and a prophecy foretelling the world’s end. Now, to save that world, Kat must find a guy who hosts the soul of a Norse god–a warrior with the lightest blond hair and the darkest brown eyes.
But at a truck stop on her road trip, Kat freezes time while she writes out a cryptic message in runes. The only other person able to see this happen? A gorgeous guy with the lightest blond hair and the darkest brown eyes.
Kat’s not convinced peaceful Arun is the future warrior who will turn the tide in the final battle. Yet, Arun turns out to be a lot tougher than he seems. As soul-carrying teens and underworld creatures gather over the world’s deadliest volcano, Kat finds that no one, including her sisters and mother, is exactly who she thought they were….
Sisters of Fate
The prophecy doesn’t lie: one is doomed to die.

I love unusual stories and credit growing up in a family of curious life-lovers who moved all over the country. Books and movies full of fantasy, science fiction and romance kept us amused, especially in some of the stranger places. For years, I tried to separate my darker side with my humorous and romantic one. I published short fiction, but things really started happening when I gave in and mixed it up. When not lost in fiction, I love making wine, collecting music, gaming and spending time with my husband and two children.
