The Three Fates of Ryan Love (book review)
About the book:
Will love be their salvation . . .
When Ryan Love discovers the mysterious Sabelle alone and terrified in his parking lot, he has no idea that helping the beautiful woman will be tempting fate. She says she’s an oracle from the Beyond, which seems crazy. But within moments of meeting her, Ryan’s entire life goes up in flames. He doesn’t know what to believe, but one thing is clear—now both their lives are in danger.
. . . or their downfall?
For years, Sabelle has guided Ryan’s fate. But by breaking the rules to save his life, she sets off a chain reaction with deadly consequences. Now she’s hunted by her enemy, her future and her heart in Ryan’s hands. In the dangerous race to restore order, Ryan discovers he cannot live without Sabelle, his seductive and devoted prophet. But can he protect her from the dark forces closing in—or will he die trying?
I didn't read Erin Quinn's first novel (The Five Deaths of Roxanne Love)... but it didn't really effect my reading at all. I AM left wondering about Ryan's siblings (especially twins Roxanne and Reece)... but it didn't distract as much as make me immediately put the first book on my must read list (and find out that the 3rd book isn't coming out until 2016. ugh!). I'm sure it would add another depth to Ryan's story... but it didn't stop my enjoyment. I think it just left me a little in the dark... like Ryan. It sounds like Roxanne and Reece know all about the "Beyond"... and Ryan only know the little they've told him. I loved following Ryan through this story. His struggles with belief, and faith, and truth were all really thought provoking.
I loved figuring out Sabelle with Ryan. (And it's pronounced S'belle! Don't get it wrong!) She was such a mystery, it's no wonder Ryan couldn't resist figuring her out.
With Gods, and Sisters of Fate, seers, oracles, reapers, and demons... this novel nothing if not epic. The entire book is a roller coaster of action and suspense... mixed with moments of emotional calm and upheaval. I loved that you didn't know what was going to happen from one chapter to the next. A definite page turner.
