‘A really thrilling and totally original story of Greek mythology that I can’t recommend highly enough’ JENNIFER SAINT



Before Gods and mortals, there were The Fates . . .



You’ve heard the legends: three sisters born out of Nyx’s darkness, destined to weave the lives, and deaths, of humankind for eternity.

But immortality is a heavy burden, and Clotho, Lachesis and Atropos are captivated by the gloriously human lives of the mortals below, especially those of the great warrior Atalanta and her ill-fated lover, Meleager.

However, being a Goddess of Fate doesn’t make you a master of it. Will these three sisters find a way to free the couple, and themselves, from their destinies? Or will they be bound by Fate forever?

Reviews

Sean Lusk, author of THE SECOND SIGHT OF ZACHARY CLOUDESLEY
Lyrical, imaginative, visceral, urgent, moving, adventurous. Rose Blythe brings The Fates startlingly back to life. This is how the ancient Greeks would have known The Fates - and their own fates
Louise Beech, author of NOTHING ELSE
Passionate, angry, empowering and beautiful
Mark Knowles, author of ARGO
This is a gorgeous novel. Amidst the now formidable number of feminist mythological retellings, The Fates is a clear stand-out. The prose is truly lyrical and immersive. The characters - mortal and divine - are beautifully drawn. And as for the plot twist... I doubt any readers will see this one coming! For lovers of reimaginings of Greek myths, The Fates is a must-buy
Nydia Hetherington, author of A GIRL MADE OF AIR
The Fates is beautifully written and conceived. The storytelling is effortless, yet fiercely and satisfyingly feminist. A gorgeous read!
Defne Suman, author of THE SILENCE OF SCHEHERAZADE
A mesmerising blend of mythology and modernity speaking "the mother tongue." A tale, capturing the heart in a world where we are lost.
Belfast Telegraph
Fascinating reading
Jennifer Saint, author of ARIADNE and ATALANTA
A clever, twisting, turning story of the three Fates - not a trio of bitter, withered hags who cruelly preside over human lives but as fierce and determined sisters in battle against the vicious gods of Olympus. I absolutely believed this novel, and the brilliant way in which the story of Atalanta and Meleager became the fight for human destiny and the future of mortals. The ending - like the rest of the novel - is truly sublime, and becomes a reflection on free will and fate, on women's voices and the power of myth that spoke to me on so many levels. This is a really thrilling and totally original story of Greek mythology that I cannot recommend highly enough!
