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.

Good, Entertaining "Trilogy" -- Under One Cover!

I picked this up on the Beachcomber sale and saved my credits, and I'm very happy I did! This is a classic Nora Roberts story with strong family ties, Irish roots, characters carrying childhood baggage, and a mystical legend to tie it all together. Unlike some of Roberts’ series books and trilogies, all three relationship stories are included in a single book. I personally liked that because the character perspectives and differences are more immediate, and the relationships progressed without endless filler pages of introspection. Combining the stories gives a more integrated feeling to the plot and action, and the story seems to move along with more purpose. Another bonus is there are three happy endings and the suspense gets wrapped up without a cliff hanger (that's no spoiler if you're a Nora Roberts fan). The humor and suspense are there as well. On the downside, it was over way too soon.

The narration was awesome with excellent male and female voices. For the reviewer who was disappointed in the pronunciation, the traditional Irish name Malachi is not pronounced the same as the Biblical name with the long “I” at the end. It is truly pronounced “Mal-a-kee to rhyme with key,” and kudos to Bernadette Quigley for getting it exactly right.

All in all, a good entertaining story.

Nora at her best!

If you like Nora Roberts, you will love this modern day storyline based on an historical event. It's exciting and funny with interesting characters you would like to meet...even the whiney mother! I bought the hard cover book for my home library as soon as it was released because, hey, I'm a big fan but this audio version is excellent too. Bernadette Quigley creates distint characters with Irish and American accents and her narration makes a great story better! I highly recommend this audio version to anyone and especially to Nora Roberts-aholics like me.

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.

Good read

Predictable but enjoyable anyway. Great read with a few surprising plot twists at the end.
