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.

    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!

    "Predictable and enjoyable"

    Fairly predictable story, by I enjoyed sticking with it as it unravelled and finding out how it would get to the predictable ending.

    "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.

    Give me water to swim and surf in. That with a glass of white wine and the sun. That's heaven.

    Story
    "Nora Roberts never disappoints!"

    What I like about all the Nora Roberts books is that she usually develops a story that has some significance to what goes on in the world, and she uses a different scenarion for each book (or series).
    I like, as well, how she handles the love scenes - romantic, but not too descriptive to the extent that they would become somewhat soft porn.

    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
    "not one of her best."
    If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

    those of the nora Roberts fan club.


    Has Three Fates put you off other books in this genre?

    yes. If I had listened to this title before listening to the bride quartet novels I would not have bought any more titles by nora Roberts.


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

    there was no expression in the narration of this book.


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

    I don't feel that scenes needed to be cut from three fates but some elements needed to be expanded .The characters were poorly drawn.

    to be honest I only listened to 90 minutes of this audio book and couldn't take any more.


    Any additional comments?

    If you are new to nora Roberts work don't make this your first listen. there are much better titles and narrators out there. nora Roberts has written better books than this.
