  • I read this tale when it was included in an anthology, A Winter's Enchantment - a mesmerizing assortment of three festive holiday fantasy novellas penned by authors who were all new to me at the time I picked it up. Anthologies are normally hard for me to review as it’s difficult to assign one rating to a collection where I normally feel differently about the included stories. Happily, that was not the case with this anthology, as I absolutely loved each of the stories and didn’t want to put [...]


  • Amalia Dillin’s Fate of the Gods Series is epic. Though often considered a cliche reference to novels, epic is the only word I could come up with to do the series justice. It is larger than life in most instances, spanning thousands of years with tons of historical references mingled throughout. It was clear from the beginning that Dillin had done her historical homework, and even with my Master’s in English, I often felt challenged at many turns. That said, I’ve truly enjoyed the series.T [...]


  • Note: This book is a novella meant to go between books 2 and 3, Fate Forgotten and Beyond Fate. I have yet to read either of these, so my review is based on this novella as a standalone.When I first picked up this novel, I had no idea what to think of it except for the one short description above. But from that alone, it definitely sounded worthy my time. And honestly, I really enjoyed this novella. Overall, there were a few parts that were lagging to me, but for the most part, I was thoroughly [...]


  • In the Fate of the Gods series, Eve's life with Ryam is oft-referenced but remains shrouded in mystery. Taming Fate explores that life, including the rocky beginning of what we already know is one of the most positive and memorable lives that Eve has had yet. She doesn't take kindly to being forced into things, even if by someone who is protecting her. After all, as horrible a fate as awaited her, she is Eve, mother of all humanity, and she is quite capable of looking after herself.I liked Ryam, [...]


  • Ryam DeLeon married Eve for her protection, but they had not been together long before they both feel the marriage was a mistake. In a last ditch effort to save their marriage, Ryam proposes a truce, suggesting they give themselves from Christmas Eve until Epiphany to come to an understanding, or go their separate ways. In the mean time, a deadly disease threatens the DeLeon lands, and Ryam and Eve must unite to combat it.Taming Fate comes in the middle of the Fate of the Gods series, and I have [...]


  • I loved reading about Eve's past life with Ryam. It really help cement some of the feelings I had in book 2, and my vague feelings I spoke about in my review of the first book of uncertainty have been quieted for now. I think Eve's strength as a character is very strong in this book, which pleases me greatly. And I love Ra/Horus Amon. So much. I want him to come visit me when I own my own house one day. :D


  • I really liked this short story that goes into an area of Eve's past that is mentioned so often throughout the rest of the series. The relationship arc was really well executed, and I was so happy to see Ra in it - he's my favorite character of the series, I think.



  • The prologue worried me. I was like oh boy, but as soon as the first chapter stared I was hooked. Loved the story, loved the Christian/Pagan mythology linked as one. This is a really great book.


  • Fans of this series are sure to enjoy this installment about Eve in 15th Century France. Thor is my favorite character and he's not onstage much in this novelette. Would love to see a novel devoted to his story.
