Series review: Sisters of Fate by Rinda Elliott

 

Book 1 Foretold

It is written that three Sisters of Fate have the power
to change the world's destiny.
But only if they survive.

The Lockwood triplets have had the prophecy drummed into their heads since birth. Still, Raven, the eldest of the sisters, can't believe it's really happening. She's the reincarnation of a Norse goddess? One of the sisters is destined to die? When it starts snowing in summer in Florida, the sisters fear the worst has come to pass. Ragnarok, the Norse end of the world, has begun.

Raven finds herself the secret protector of Vanir, a boy with two wolves, a knowledge of Norse magic and a sense of destiny he can't quite explain. He's intense, sexy and equally determined to save her when it becomes clear someone is endangering them. Raven doesn't know if getting closer to him will make a difference in the coming battle, but her heart isn't giving her a choice.

 

Available on Amazon.com: Foretold

Becky's Review

It is a very new and innovative tale involving the influence and impact of the old Norse gods on the modern world. Not directly from the gods themselves but focusing on a doomful prophecy about the souls of the Norns, weavers of fate inside teenage triplets who due to their runic way of seeing the past, present and future have led a very troubled and restricted life.
Foretold follows one of the triplets Raven Lockwood as she travels through a freak nationwide snow storm to stop her crazy mother from seeking out 3 boys who may hold the souls of Odin, Thor or Frey. As the story centres on fate a lot of fated things happen but never as you expect and all lead to a fantastic climax of an ending. The characters are fantastically well created and established, each with their own secrets, agendas and personality. I loved every chapter, was truly gripped as the plot became more complex and I finished it in 2 days because I couldnt put it down. Really looking forward to Forewarned the 2nd book in the trilogy which follows the adventures of the 2nd triplet which we get glimpses of through phone calls between the triplets. Another highly recommended book for lovers of norse mythology

Book 2: Forecast

The Lockwood triplets are charged with helping to save the world--but at a high cost.

Coral is always in the middle, always the family peacemaker. She's the sister with the most to prove. When a freak snowstorm halts her Florida summer, signaling the Norse end of the world, she tracks down Taran Breen--a would-be warrior carrying Thor's soul. A boy who's fought his temper all his life and is now a suspect for murder.

One who looks at her as no other has before.
As roaring seas surge and terrifying underworld creatures emerge for battle, can Coral control her goddess magic and protect Taran? Because now she has a chance for more than her crazy life--as long as she and Taran win....

It is written that three Sisters of Fate have the power
to change the world's destiny.
But only if they survive...

 

Becky's Review

Absolutely bloody amazing! Grips you right from the start and the characters are soo deep they are almost 3D and the plot has as much twist as a whole wall full of celtic knots. Really, really, enjoyed meeting Coral and Taran....possibly a new dream book boy.... as this 2nd book is soo good I can see the final 3rd book will be utterly mind blowing! Rinda really is a sorceress with the way she ingeniously intertwines the complexities of Ragnarok and norse myths into a world that young adult readers can enjoy without being confused. Truly splendid writing.

Book 3 Foresworn

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 worldâ€ôs deadliest volcano, Kat finds that no one, including her sisters and mother, is exactly who she thought they were...

Becky's Review

O M G! The magic of Rinda's story writing and the gripping cliffhangers in each chapter and characters you so wish were real pull you very willingly from start to end! An amazing climax to a trilogy I have fallen deeply in love with. I feel bereft its over.... or is it? *crosses fingers* This was a true unputdownable read it's not often I come across books that make me wish I didn't need sleep or didn't have work to do just so I could turn the next page!
