Twenty five year old journalist intern, Kathryn McDounough, will soon be completing her graduate intern-ship in preparation for her career. Her professor informs her that a regional newspaper known as the Boston Commons is looking for a writer for a small weekly column under the chief editor, Arlene Burkes. After being accepted for the job, Kathryn (everyone calls her Katie) begins to experience strange and initially inexplicable phenomena ranging from witnessing freak car accidents, vivid dreams to being followed. Will Katie figure out what is causing all the chaos? Does she really want to know the answer?

Kathryn (Katie) McDounough is an intern journalist. She wants her big break into the field, one that will launch and secure her career. Working for the Boston Commons, her first tough assignment is to successfully interview the notoriously eccentric author, Robert Staggs. But soon after the initial interview, odd things occur in Katie’s life. She digs into the mystery, but that may leave her dead.
This is a fun addition to the urban fantasy genre. It focuses on the three Fates of mythology. They probably started off Greek (the Moirai) as Robert Staggs suspect, but their names have changed as different cultures through the ages adopted them into their mythology. Now, in this modern era, the Fates seem rather interested in both Robert and Katie. But their interest is of a sinister nature and Katie experiences some scary and disturbing things. She has to outsmart Fate itself.
I really liked the mix of mythology, investigative reporting, action, and reflection. The story had a good pace and I wanted to listen to this book all in one sitting. The characters were easy to connect with and I was caught up in their story wanting to know how they were going to get out of the mess they are in. Over all, this book is clever and fun.
I was provided this audiobook at no charge by the narrator in exchange for an honest review.
The Narration: Tiffany Williams was great. She had the perfect voice for Katie, providing the right amount of emotion as the situation warranted. She also had believable male voices.
I love this newer generation rediscovering mythology stories. I grewup with and read. I was given this audiobook in exchange for review of the narrative performance. Tiffany Williams was full of energyenergy with a nice range of pitch and accent switching flawlessly between the voices. It is very clear that she herself enjoyed the story she was reading and that enhanced the overall storyline. Well done!
