Publisher's Summary

When the Lusitania sank, more than 1,000 people died. One passenger, however, survived to become a changed man, giving up his life as a petty thief but keeping a small silver statue that would become a family heirloom to future generations.

Now, nearly a century later, that heirloom, one of a priceless, long-separated set of three, has been snatched away from the Sullivans. And Malachi, Gideon, and Rebecca Sullivan are determined to recover their great-great-grandfather's treasure, reunite the Three Fates, and make their fortune.

The quest will take them from their home in Ireland to Helsinki, Prague, and New York and introduce them to a formidable female professor whose knowledge of Greek mythology will aid them in their quest; to a daring exotic dancer who sees the Fates as her chance at a new life; and to a seductive security expert who knows how to play high-tech cat-and-mouse. And it will pit them in a suspenseful fight against an ambitious woman who will stop at nothing to acquire the Fates.

    "Boring"

    I love Nora Roberts .. yet this book is so boring I can't even make it beyond the first part. I have give up on it and bought another book. Very surprising for Norra's work.

    "Surprisingly entertaining"

    This was my first Nora Roberts novel and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I enjoyed the story and the narrator was delightfully entertaining.

    "Entertaining story but..."
    Any additional comments?

    I am about half way through the book, and am enjoying the story. It's not a literary great, but it is entertaining. The narrators voice, however, is really annoying. It's nasally and at times sounds like she is really struggling to get the words out of her throat. It is very distracting. I certainly will not buy another book that is narrated by her.

    Slow starting with confusing number of characters. Picked up fine, characters developed, turned out to be a great story!

    "Favorite!"

    One of my favorite single stories by Nora Roberts and the voice over was beautifully done. I listened to it twice so far.

    "STORYLINE WELL TIED TOGETHER WITH MANY FACETS"

    THE BEST PART OF THIS BOOK WAS THE CONNECTIONS BETWEEN THE CHARACTERS AND THEIR PAST. OVERALL NOT MY FAVOURITE NORA ROBERTS BOOK BUT STILL WORTH LISTENING TO .

    Story
    "Some hunt for treasure, some romance, some history"

    I found my first Nora Roberts book too far into the romance category. Based on that, I didn't plan to buy any more. Somehow I bought this one on a sale. My opinion took an about face.

    This is an entertaining and easy listen. The bits of history and mythology seem accurate. The attempts to acquire the three fates by several parties and their tactics fit well with current technology and global travel. The romances are secondary to the quest.

    The narration flows well, the characters are distinctly different, and the pace is well timed.

    "Better than I expected"
    Where does Three Fates rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    top 20


    Have you listened to any of Bernadette Quigley’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I haven't heard this narrator before. I liked her and would listen to other books she narrates but I can't say she was one of my favorites...yet.

    Story
    "Book would be better than the audio."
    What did you love best about Three Fates?

    I loved the story, as I love to read/hear Nora Roberts.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Three Fates?

    I enjoyed the way six people were drawn together and bonded by "fate".


    Would you be willing to try another one of Bernadette Quigley’s performances?

    No. Her Irish accent and her speaking so fast made it difficult for me to hear the words and I had a hard time differentiating which of the characters were speaking. I had to continually rewind and re-listen to be able to follow the story line.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Not really


    Any additional comments?

    It is a good book. Perhaps with a different narrator, I might have enjoyed it more.
