My thanks go to the author for providing a review copy in exchange for an honest review. I’ve been wanting to get round to this book for a while, so Spooky Reads Week seemed the perfect opportunity to get it read.
Alyssa finds herself in unfortunate circumstances, when an attempt for some reading time in the woods ends up in her dying during a brutal attack. She realises death is coming and accepts that justice shall be served. She’s prepared to die. However, rather than finding herself passing on, Alyssa is granted another chance, and finds herself going back to the week before the accident, full of the memories of her death which hasn’t yet happened.
But what is she supposed to change? And how?
Caught in a loop that doesn’t seem to play out right, no matter what she does, Alyssa is caught in a frustrating and heart-breaking cycle. Add in the growing love of the new boy David, and she’s really got one hell of a situation. (Not to mention David is really one of the Brothers, sent to protect her – but she doesn’t even know that yet!)
I love the world Sasha has created for the Twisted Fate series. I love the involvement of the Sisters of Fate and the angels – she’s based it on enough known mythology that her world was easily believable, as well as being structurally sound, but has still made a unique and interesting world of her own.
Alyssa is an average, sweet 16 year old girl. But she’s different to most, purer. My original concern was that this meant she was going to be far too perfect, and if I’m honest, annoying, but the reality was quite contradictory. She was just a normal, likeable girl. She wasn’t perfect, she simply had a good heart; perfect intentions, I suppose. But she gets just as torn by both her everyday drama, and the huge situation she finds herself in, as you would expect any other girl too. She doesn’t know what she’s meant to do – she wants to do what’s right, but with so many ripples of repercussions from her actions, how on earth is she meant to discover what the right thing is?
I loved watching her grow and especially her relationship with David. David was probably my favourite character – his inner battle between his duties and his feelings was touching and endearing.
The last part of the book was gruelling and emotional, but also tender and beautiful. Sasha has built up perfectly to the sequel (Fate’s Return came out this week!) which I will be hastily buying so I can continue with Aly’s story. A thoroughly enjoyable read, and I have high hopes for the series.
This was a captivating YA novel that I enjoyed immensely.

Not even at the very beginning does this feel like the “coming of age” tale that most Young Adult novels seem to embrace, which was absolutely wonderful. It was more like a teenage version of “Groundhog Day”…only with more, you know, death and dying. And quite a bit of philosophy.
The author spun a tantalizing tale of second chances, what it means to really be a good person, as well as calling upon certain tropes of mythology. If I interpreted things right, it was a blend of both Greek and Christian mythology, and it was absolutely seamless. It played directly into the plot and served as the undercurrent to keep the narrative moving. Although with that undercurrent, I do think that when the romance aspect of the novel popped up, things moved almost too quickly. Everything else was well-paced, however.
I’m not usually big on female protagonists: even women writing women seem to just get them…wrong. I have to say that I fell in love with Alyssa Frank and her unique position in life. She was well-written, well-rounded, and she gives you a lump in your throat when you become privy to everything she has to endure. You read on to the end and then the author gives you something even more tantalizing: a really huge cliffhanger designed to make you toss your book in frustration and weep because the next one has yet to be released.
