Three Fates

When the Lusitania sank, more than one 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.

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.

    "Difficult"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    This read was difficult to get into, but after much menutia, the story was gripping.

    Fifty Shades of Grey


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Narrator did great with voices. I could determine who was speaking at any point.

    the second part of the book was worth it.

    Story
    "Story let down by bad narration"
    What disappointed you about Three Fates?

    The narrator is appalling. Narration is so boring and her voice grates. The men sound like perverts. Names are mispronounced. Accents very badly done. Through the narrator's performance, the story is uninteresting, proceeding like a dull flat line. What a pity because the story itself seems exciting and the characters have promise but in the hands of this narrator I couldn't wait to get to the end so I didn't need to listen to her awful storytelling anymore.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    It's not the story but the narrator that needs changing.


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

    No way.


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

    The story seems interesting enough.

    Story
    "I REALLY enjoyed this! Action, romance, etc."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Sure, there are a few sexy scenes that a 'vanilla' romance reader might find offensive.


    What other book might you compare Three Fates to and why?

    It is better than the 'typical' Nora Roberts book. It was a more complex plot and enjoyable action along with romance (or 3 romances!)


    What about Bernadette Quigley’s performance did you like?

    It was excellent...I adore the Irish accents!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No, I don't have extreme reactions. It was fun, fast paced with a good mystery and romances all in one.


    Any additional comments?

    Though it checked back to a historical event this was NOT a historical romance...(I don't care for historical romances.)

    Story
    "Another hit"
    What did you love best about Three Fates?

    I love the intertwining of the relationships with the fates.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I love the Irish family. The personalities of the individual members were realistic of what real family relationships are.


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

    This was the first time I've listening to Bernadette Quigley and I thought she did a wonderful job handling all the different characters. I always knew who was speaking.


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

    I didn't listen to this in one sitting, but I did extend my listening by an hour twice. My audible account is my luxury because I travel for work and these books help pass the time.


    Any additional comments?

    Another hit for Nora Roberts - well done!

    "Nora Roberts usual.."

    I love Nora Roberts writing and this book was her usual good production. A bit like having a meal at a restaurant and when someone asks you a week later what it was like and you honestly can't remember.. It wasn't bad, it wasn't fantastic, it was acceptably ok.

    Story
    "Better than I expected! A romance."
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Yes! The more explicted sex descriptions. There are only 3 but not necessary to the story. The plot is intriguing and interestingly educational. The action shifts from country to country. How the characters connect is intriguing.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Nora Roberts? Why or why not?

    Maybe, maybe not. This was not actually a murder mystery but a romance with suspense. It was easy listening.


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

    No, I was not familiar with the narrator but had listened to the sample. She was excellent! The Irish accents were pleasant and the other voices were well done, both male & female.


    Do you think Three Fates needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No, the story wrapped up neatly. All the characters were taken care of in good time.

    A school administrator and avid reader and listener of books. At least an hour of every day is spent in the car, and that's where the bulk of my listening is done. I tend to listen to books on "faster" mode so I can get through more books!

    "So enjoyable!"
    What does Bernadette Quigley bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Bernadette has a quality to her voices that adds to each of the charactors. I especially liked her scottish accents. She did a bang up job!


    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoyed this story, I was pleasantly suprised at the writing, not the usual Nora Roberts style. Although I'm a fan of Nora Roberts this one seemed to veer from her venue, it was more realistic than many of her other books.

    When the oldest brother joined forces with the head of the security team.


    What about Bernadette Quigley’s performance did you like?

    Bernadette Quigleys performance was outstanding in the way she breathed life into the characters in her narration.
