I would also say closer to King Arthur. Below is what I thought of this book.
The Fates is designed to be a touching, exhilarating story about love surviving even the most adverse circumstances. The story centers on Leah and Nicholas, the two characters who come from very different worlds yet share a common interest - one another. Leah is a Turk and Nicholas a conquering Spartan Lord; therefore, a romance between them is strictly prohibited and would spell serious repercussion.
And yet Leah and Nicholas find that their passion cannot be denied. From their first chance meeting through several other encounters. They find themselves immensely attracted to one another. Tino shows these passions extremely well, describing also each character's trepidation about involvement with the other.
The story is complicated by the fact that Leah is promised to Peatro, a man she does not love. For his part, Peatro is determined to be united with Leah, and he proceeds with plans for their wedding, despite her protestations.
On the supposed night of the marriage, Leah flees and finds refuge in Nicholas' arms. She becomes his wife instead of Peatro's, and news of the marriage quickly spreads. Both Leah and Nicholas are branded as traitors to their people and are ostracized as a result. And yet this only draws them closer together.
Far more than a simple romantic tale, The Fates is also filled with elements of political intrigue. Tino maintains an aura of suspense throughout the story, particularly as Leah and Nicholas deal with the fallout of their decision to wed. One such consequence is the wrath of Peatro, who vows to make Leah his, no matter the cost. This desire for vengeance leads to a cumulative battle, which will have readers on the edge of their seats. Who will triumph, and who will die? Will Leah and Nicholas ever be able to find peace - and more - are answered in the waning pages of The Fates.
Filled with rich dialect and the language of its ancient setting. The Fates is designed to be highly authentic. Because of its emphasis on accepting and being open-minded toward those who are different, this is a tale with highly contemporary implications. Readers will appreciate the fact that Leah and Nicholas decide to follow their hearts, despite the inauspicious circumstances and naysayers that surround them.
I thought you had been quiet lately. Please stop being pathetic. So you've purchased another couple of items from Amazon and invented some more IDs. Don't for one minute think that anyone falls for the fake IDs scam any more. Can't you be just a little bit more inventive?
