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.

    "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.

    "Aye the Irish!"

    Enjoyed the story. Norah Roberts always entertains. The narrator, Bernadelle Quigley was wonderful. I could listen to her all day. In fact I'm going to listen again just to hear the Irish. A lovely cast of characters.

    Story
    "Hard to get through"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The story line was too slow for me. Faster pace, more interesting characters.


    What was most disappointing about Nora Roberts’s story?

    Just too slow!!


    What three words best describe Bernadette Quigley’s performance?

    She did just fine.


    Any additional comments?

    This book had an interesting plot, but just so hard to get through.

    "A bit confusing at first!"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I love Nora Robert. This book was a little difficult to get into. At one point I almost started over because I was so confused! But once I figured out all the people it was a good book.

    "Easy mindless read"

    Not a bad story but nothing to get your blood boiling. Nora Roberts is always a reliable read but I prefer the "In Death" series for audio.

    Story
    "You gotta love that Irish accent!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, there are some great saucy scenes as well as some intellectual stimulation for all the academics out there...I always wonder whether it is true...I must look that up one day...Hmm.

    The book is about the legendary 3 fates that people are unsure whether they really exist, but when they are bought together they have a special power. Well the fates obviously put the fates of the right people in the right place for things to happen. What I like about Nora Jones books, the other one being The Witness, is that while they satisfy my intellectual craving for a good listen where I can learn something new, they also have a couple of good saucy scenes that are always good for anyones appetite!

    Story
    "Last half of the book is much better!"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    If I had read this before the Witness, then I would have never picked up the Witness. That would have been a shame because the Witness was a great book. I almost stopped listening, but stuck with it. The ending really picked up.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Like I said the ending was better than the beginning.

    Story
    "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.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    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.


    Was Three Fates worth the listening time?

    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.)
