Synopsis

'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?
