With the captain’s mind in shambles, Jon and Tom set out to find the passage home through the black mountain range, hoping to find a cure for Baltsaros’s madness. However, when the men are forced to part ways, darkness takes root in the schism created; fate, lust, and vengeance become obsessions threatening to tear apart the fragile bonds holding the three together.
Following on the heels of Sacrificed, Fated takes the pirates on a quest to find those responsible for the captain’s bloody beginnings. But can they survive what awaits them where past and present meet?
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
The dramatic conclusion of the Baal's Heart trilogy, FATED took me on a roller coaster ride of emotional responses. Jon, Baltsaros and Tom are adapting to new roles, both in and out of their relationship, after the trauma they experienced in Sacrificed: Heart Beyond the Spires. Forced to make difficult choices while under pressure, their personal demons are closer to the surface than ever. Emotions are strained and loyalties are challenged as some of their worst nightmares come to life.
Expertly written, FATED combines the trio's experiences from Caged: Love and Treachery on the High Seas and Sacrificed: Heart Beyond the Spires into a powerful culmination of events. In order to create the firm foundation their relationship requires, each man must first learn to recognize their own strengths and weaknesses, accept themselves, trust their instincts and gain confidence in themselves independently of the group. I absolutely adored this finale but at the same time I wasn't ready for the story to end. I'm a long time fan of fantasy fiction but I tip my hat to Bey Deckard for renewing my long lost love of historical romance.
