But that’s just the beginning. Cacy has a secret life, and the breakneck pace of her high-stakes story propels this rich and utterly original fantasy. (You’d never guess how versatile an amulet can be!) Throw in a pulse-quickening romance and a memorable cast of flawed but often heroic characters, and the result is a darkly imaginative, genre-straddling story that is much more than the sum of its parts.
But don’t take my word for it. I shared my now dog-eared copy with friends who are die-hard fans of romance novels, fantasy or whodunnits, and Sarah’s symbiotic weaving of elements from all three genres left everyone asking how soon they could read the sequel. Now that’s a true testament to a story.
So whether you want to heat up a winter night with the fiery love of two gorgeous protagonists, be teased by a gauntlet of potential villains, or simply bask in the escapism provided by all great entertainment, Sarah Fine’s new Servants of Fate series will beckon you in. Welcome to a world that greets adult readers warmly and leaves them with more than they came for.
