Aislin Ferry and Jason Moros have only days until they will be called to account before the Keepers of the Afterlife. Yet as they race to restore order and make their case, their worlds fall into total disarray. Mutiny within the fractured Ferry family threatens Aislin’s hold on power and role as Charon. Meanwhile, the fearsome Lord of the Kere has family trouble of his own. Someone is unraveling the fabric of fate, and Moros suspects one of his supernatural siblings is behind the terrible bid to unleash Chaos. Now unlikely allies, Aislin and Moros each need the other to escape the wrath of the Keepers. As the stakes rise, it becomes clear that protecting their respective empires is not the endgame. With the fate of all humanity dangling by a thread, Aislin and Moros must surrender completely to one another if they are to fight their common enemy. And as time runs out, someone must make the ultimate sacrifice.
Fated by Sarah Fine is the final book in the Servants of Fate series. I listened to this series and loved the world and characters. This series was my first experience with Sarah Fine but rest assured we have begun a long-term relationship and I am eager to listen to her previously published books and the new ones yet to come. Brilliant, gut wrenching and action packed Fine did not hold back and Fated packed a punch.
Fated gets us up-close and personal with Jason Moros the incarnate of Death, as he tries to stop the very fabric of fate from unraveling. Eris, Apate and Nemesis who represent hate, lies and jealousy are conspiring to overthrow fate and raise Chaos. Souls are being reaped without authorization causing the very fabric of life to unravel. Moros joins forces with Aislin Ferry, the leader of the Ferry clan. Fine leads us on an action packed, nail-biting tale as they try to stop his siblings.
Throughout the trilogy, we learned about both Aislin and Moros making them favorites, but getting inside their heads and seeing them interact was a treat. Moros is confident and cocky on the outside. He has this bad ass persona that screams don’t f@ck with me, but when we look beneath the surface you find this loyal, loving softy. Aislin is strong, but worries about appearances and carries the burden of protecting her clan. Separately they are a strong but united they are a force to be reckoned with.
The romance was sensual and powerful making it my favorite of the series. The chemistry and banter was delightful but the high regard they held for each other is what made this romance so special. So many times the alpha tries to protect and save, but in this, they trusted each other, and admired each other knowing that each could hold their own. Tender moments, and danger had me tearing up, wringing my hands, and listening with bated breath. I appreciated how deeply Fine let us get to know these characters as she peeled back the layers of their careful honed facades giving me all the feels.
The plot was intense and at times downright nerve-wracking as Fine moved towards the climatic ending. She had me on edge the entire time and constantly reaching for truffles. Forget predictable because as scenes unravel I found myself holding my breath and thinking “we all gonna die.” The ending for Fated was strong and felt true leaving me satisfied.
Emily Foster narrated the series and I enjoyed her depiction of the characters. She captured their emotions and each voice felt unique.
