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.

    Story
    "Lots of fun!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Three Fates to be better than the print version?

    Each version has its strengths and weaknesses. I like most Nora Roberts in audio format since they are light and easy to remember.


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

    I love history and stories that tie history to the present. This book did an excellent job of foreshadowing, laying out just enough clues and tying everything up neatly in the end.


    Any additional comments?

    I loved it that not only did the guy get the girl, THREE guys and THREE girls ended up together!! An all around happy ending was had by all - especially me!

    Story
    "Good story but too much foul language."
    What disappointed you about Three Fates?

    I dislike having to listen to foul language. This book had enough to really put me off. There was also a fair amount of sexual content.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The story is good and though a bit too contrived, kept my interest.

    Story
    "Poor Narration"

    The narrator’s overly-rapid, staccato delivery, with misplaced pauses disrupt the flow of the story and makes it very difficult to follow the story. It’s disconcerting enough that I’ll think twice about any book she reads.

    I remember truly enjoying reading this book and it's hard to listen to it.

    I love to listen and read books. I don't waste a minute...I listen when I am driving, cleaning, getting my nails done, etc. Fiction books are my favorites.... mysteries.

    Story
    "So much fun!"
    Would you listen to Three Fates again? Why?

    Yes, definitely! This book, with its great narrator told an exciting story complete with murder, adventure and of course love.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I loved all the characters in this book. All were individual all had a story of their own and all had personality!!


    What about Bernadette Quigley’s performance did you like?

    She was amazing. Her reading was superb, & the characters individual. You knew who was talking by the change of her voice. No character sounded the same.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    No. I loved the whole book. Once I started I had a hard time putting my Ipod down. I think I finished the book in 3 days.

    "Very enjoyable"
    What made the experience of listening to Three Fates the most enjoyable?

    Like all of Nora's book, you really believe the relationship between the lead figures. She's very good about groupings of three.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The Cruella DeVille character :)


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

    Yes! I buy them for the gym, then find myself listening in the car and at home, while preparing dinner!

    Story
    "Still a favorite"
    Would you listen to Three Fates again? Why?

    I would listen to it again. This has been one of my favorites of Nora's books for years, and I thoroughly enjoyed the audio version.


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

    I love moments when a good plan comes together. In this case, our six protagonists come up with a fun and excellent way to spike the wheels of the detestable Anita Gay. Even when parts were relatively predictable, I found myself anticipating that "gotcha" moment.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Sometimes you can make plans. Sometimes, Fate intervenes.


    Any additional comments?

    I haven't read the story in several years, so there were many details that were foggy. I loved re-discovering all the twists and surprising connections between the characters.

    Story
    "need help going to sleep try reading this book"
    Would you try another book from Nora Roberts and/or Bernadette Quigley?

    No, I have managed to wade through two other books by Nora Roberts. Did not enjoy them.Three Fates was my third try. I gave up after 45 mins of listining. No more Nora Roberts no matter how cheap they are.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Something of Connelly, Kellerman, Patterson, Child, Macdonald. They are always good.br/>


    What didn’t you like about Bernadette Quigley’s performance?

    Slow, boreing, sounds like she would like to be doing something else


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Three Fates?

    I listened to the first 45 mins of that book 3 times and can't remember a thing about it.


    Any additional comments?

    Thank you for letting me voice my opinion
