I bought this book for just something to read on a long flight but I could not put it down!!! Its a modern day treasure hunt with a evil villian and of course ... romance!!! If you read this book and like it I suggest you read "Hot Ice" by Nora Roberts and "The Book of Seven Delights" by Betina Krahn.
I have read every Nora Roberts book since she started writing about 30 years ago. This is by far the best and I would love for this to be put onto the "big screen". Terrific storyline, great characters and good suspense. Just an excellent book!
I really enjoyed this book. In true Nora Roberts style it had an interesting and engaging plot along with some romance. I enjoyed the connections and twists between the main characters. There was enough to keep you guessing throughout.
Three Fates is a dynamic romantic suspense story about a quest inspired by legend, and accomplished by destined love. According to Greek mythology, the three Fates influence the destiny of all mankind, for one spins the thread of life, the next measures it, and the last cuts it at the proper time. To control any of the Fates is a powerful temptation.... Three beautiful silver statuettes of the Fates were made long ago, designed to link together. Legend says that to possess any of them brings good fortune -- and to possess them all brings power beyond imagining. One of the statues was stolen just before the sinking of the Lusitania. When the thief's life was spared in that disaster, he gave up his errant ways -- but he kept the statue as a keepsake and in time passed it on to his descendants. After their family is tricked out of that statue, the Sullivan siblings -- Malachi, Gideon, and Rebecca -- become determined to get it back, and to reunite the long-separated triad. Their search leads from Ireland to Europe to New York, entwining each of their lives with a new ally whose destiny is also linked with the Fates. And each of them is fated to face deadly danger as they match wits with a ruthless enemy who is determined to claim the three Fates as her own.
She was shimmering silver,small enough to fit in the palm of his hand.He took possession of her on an impulse-never knowing that she was more than just a trinket who might fetch a pretty price in a pawnshop at the next port.Then a thunderous explosion rocked the ship-and in mere minutes,so many fates were changed...
When the Lusitania sank, more than a thousand people died. One passenger who survived became a changed man, giving up his life as a petty thief-though keeping the small silver statue he lifted, a family heirloom to future generations. Now, nearly a century later, that statue, one of a priceless, long-separated set of three, has been snatchd from the Sullivans. And Malachi, Gideon, and rebecca Sullivan are determined to reocver their great-great-grandfather's treasure, reunite the Three Fates, and make their fortune.
The quest will take them far from their home in Ireland: to Helsinki, where Malachi seeks out Tia Marsh, a formidable American scholar whose priveledged background, sharp mind, and authoratative knowledge of Greek mythology masks a fragile, fear-plagued woman within, and whose family is an important link to the mysterious mmissing statue. To Prague, where a bold, exoctic dancer bnamed Cleo will enchant Gideon Sullivan-and embark on a gamble to turn her life around. And to new York, where security expert Jack Burdett joins the Sullivans in their fight against an ambitious woman who will stop at nothing to acquire the Fates.
Fast-paced and full of the romance and passion for which she is famous, THREE FATES is Nora Roberts at her adventurous best-an unforgettable tale of luck, love, and the fateful decisions that shape people's lives.
