Queens Of Moirai
Captivating exploration of mythology and destiny, Queens Of Moirai by Rhiannon Hargadon, is a mythological story with a feminist twist which enchants and intrigues readers with a modern retelling of the story of the Three Fates and the Grim Reaper. With a moral message to live a life we define for ourselves, while also imagining a world where our path is set, Rhiannon Hargadon immerses readers in her dark and troubling tale of Morena Atropos is the Third Fate, the controller of Death, the granddaughter of Atropos (a descendant of Atropos in the original myth).
Whilst born with the ability to cut the threads of life, Morena finds herself not wanting to fulfil her duties. Doomed with dark gifts of destruction and imprisoned for all of her life in a stone tower, her only view is the Obsidian Sea. Those she loves are taken away from her or used against her – what choice does she have but to serve as assassin?
Hiding her strength and her soft heart, Morena hones her murderous abilities, serving as slave to an unstoppable villain – her mother, Malinda the Mad, Queen of the Blood Throne. There’s no hope of escape until the arrival of a mysterious stranger who claims to be her betrothed. He’s there to finally rescue her, and Morena is all too willing to throw herself into his muscular arms. But all is not as it seems with the grey-eyed prince of her girlhood fantasies… and as his lies unravel, it plunges Morena into a love-triangle of forbidden love and arranged marriage, and a choice between her heart or her soul.
In the meantime, her mother and her zombie army are on the move, and the other Fates expect Death to save the day.
Set in an epic dark fantasy world in a timeline of hundreds of years, this dark romantasy features the Three Fates: Clotho, Lachesis, and Atropos, and their last descendants.
