Waiting on Wednesday #59: Fates by Lanie Bross

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spines. This is a cool way to spotlight a upcoming release that you're anxious about, as well as checking out what other book lovers are anticipating as well. So, check out my WoW for this week:

Fates (Fates, #1)
Fates (Fates #1)
by Lanie Bross
Release date: February 11th 2014
Publisher: Delacorte Books for Young Readers

Synopsis via Goodreads:

What if your destiny was to kill the one you love?

One moment. One foolish desire. One mistake. And Corinthe lost everything.

She fell from her tranquil life in Pyralis Terra and found herself exiled to the human world. Her punishment? To make sure people’s fates unfold according to plan. Now, years later, Corinthe has one last assignment: kill Lucas Kaller. His death will be her ticket home.

But for the first time, Corinthe feels a tingle of doubt. It begins as a lump in her throat, then grows toward her heart, and suddenly she feels like she’s falling all over again—this time for a boy she knows she can never have. Because it is written: one of them must live, and one of them must die.

In a universe where every moment, every second, every fate has already been decided, where does love fit in?

Why I'm Waiting

Aside from the lovely cover and the fact that I'm being invited in because the girl's face remains a mystery, Fates has a really interesting description. How horrible it must be to have to take the life of someone you love because it's all planned by fate. This I definitely have to read to find out how the story plays out.

What are you waiting for?
