About this ebook

Greek myth and forbidden romance meet in this exciting new urban fantasy.

Brooding, leather jacket-wearing Nyx Fortuna looks like a 20-something, and has for centuries now. As the son of the forgotten fourth Fate, Lady Fortuna, he has been hunted his entire life by the three Sisters of Fate that murdered his mother.

Fed up and out for revenge, Nyx comes to Minneapolis following a tip that his aunts have set up a business there. His goal é to bring down his mother's killers and retrieve the thread of fate that has trapped him in the body of a twenty year old unable to age or die.

But when a chance meeting with the mysterious, dangerous and very mortal Elizabeth Abernathy throws off his plans, he must reconcile his humanity and his immortality.

Could been great story. But to vaguely written. And for a old immortal, Nyx acts pretty dumb & like he's 15y.o., plus he really WEAK. He been alive for an age. He should be completely trained and badass. This musta been written in one night.

Not good storytelling. The writing itself is fine, but everyone's dumb, the plot jumps around stupidly, Nyx never asks the right questions. Couldn't finish it.
