Seventeen-year old Macy Lockhart thought she had it all figured out. As a Keeper in the ancient organization, the Order of the Moirae, she literally holds fate in her hands. She lives over and over in lives that end tragically; all to further the good of mankind as she does her part to control destiny.
But there’s one lesson that she hasn’t learned well enough. Nothing is ever what it seems. Startling new revelations about her identity surface and Macy realizes that she’s more important than she ever imagined. As she struggles to grasp her new reality, everyone she loves is threatened. Is she strong enough to save them all?
Moving from Egypt to Greek gods, this book picks up right where the first one ended. Unlike the first book, I wasn’t familiar with all the characters mentioned. There were a lot more characters this time, and I did get a little lost in all the mythological gods mentioned.
That being said, Macy is a very likable and sympathetic character. She has flaws and doubts that are both realistic and understandable. It is easy to cheer for her and hope that she figures things out and gets her happy ending.
Speaking of endings, have I mentioned before that I hate cliffhanger endings? Because I do. And this book has a doozy. There is no way that you want a time delay between this book and the next. The story doesn’t seem complete on its own, but like it’s one story that has been split up into multiple volumes.
