Fates by Lanie Bross

I got Fates by Lanie Bross from Netgalley for free in exchange for an honest review quite some time ago. So, here it goes. I wasn't in love with this story. I wanted to be, oh how I wanted to be. As must as I hate to give anything but a five star review. But there was just something missing. The plot was unique and I really liked it, but it kinda read as a drafty like. For me, I love the blurb and the cover; a lot. Also, the idea behind this story it good I thought it was a wonderful idea. I may have even liked it if the blurb and the story its self matched; and the story itself was what I thought it was going to be. There is a chance that I wouldn't have been disappointed with the story because the blurb and the story wasn't the same. I did however like Lanie Bross's writing style. I may give this book a re-read in a year or so just because I now know what to expect or I may give another one of Lanie Bross stories a read. I feel that a rewriting or editing of the book to match the blurb or change the blurb to the book would make a lot of difference. Like I said I enjoy the idea behind this story and maybe even the story if there wasn't that let down or that bit if not that same between the two. Some of the characters, were good. I really hope that if and when I do re-read this I'll enjoy as much as I was hoping to. Or if this story gets rewritten I'll like it as much as I wanted to. I wouldn't just shove this book away. I would give it a try at less because maybe its a book that you'll like, maybe it wasn't a book for me. But I really do like the idea behind this story. So, all in all it was a fine read I was just disappointed. Netgalley provided this book to me for free in exchange for an honest review.
