    One thought on “The Three Fates”

    1. Kate is an author of both ancient and Renaissance novels, though to me (and to many) she is best known for her tales of Rome’s more powerful women during the height of the empire. I recently read and reviewed ‘Lady of the Eternal City’, her latest. I was perusing potential things to add to my kindle when I came across The Three Fates. Instant download. The Three Fates, I will say from the off, is definitely not a standalone work. As Kate mentions in her notes, this is, in fact, the origina [...]

    2. I know, I know. Why in the world did I give 5 stars on a very short story consisting essentially of 3 "vignettes" length of each about a chapter? Because as far as this kind of thing goes, this was GReAT! If the job of this was to get me pumped up & excited about reading Lady of the Eternal City (coming out next week!) then I say Job Well Done! I was instantly swept away back to the Roman world of Sabina, Vix, & Hadrian. I can't wait to start the novel next week. My only complaint is tha [...]

    3. When Vix was made Praetorian Guard after the death of Emperor Trajan by the new Emperor Hadrian, the difference in the two men was stark. Trajan had been loved by all – Hadrian was hated and for good reason. Hadrian had set a task for Vix – a task that he didn’t want; one that threatened all he held dear. The lives of his best friend Titus as well as Vix’s wife and children were on the line.As Emperor Hadrian made his journey back to Rome, Vix pondered his future. But all he could see wa [...]

    4. I've been a big fan of Kate Quinn's since I read a few years ago. KQ really knows how to bring Ancient Rome alive on the pages and it never takes too long before I'm completely immersed. " The Three Fates" is no exception and it makes me greedy to get my hands onwhich will be released in bookstores very soon. All readers should be warned that this is NOT A FULL-FLEDGED NOVEL. It is instead three separate "vignettes" that links its predecessorto the aforementioned sequel that is coming out in a f [...]

    5. This little novella has totally gotten me in the spirit for Lady of the Eternal City. It's gonna be sooo good!

    6. I love when novellas actually bridge the gap between books--cannot wait to read Lady of the Eternal City now!

    7. This short gives up glimpses of the past characters and build a bridge to the new book. I hope that all of them make it through and happy, that they can overcome. A tall order I know.

    8. Kate Quinn is on my "always buy and read" list. It's a really short list - the only other two authors on it are Terry Pratchett and Jane Austen. I think that says enough of how highly I rate Ms Quinn's writing.Buuuuuut of course I want to say more. :p I loved reading this. It's not a book as such, more of a novella or a short story collection to bridge the gap between Empress of the Seven Hills and Lady of the Eternal City. You'll need to have read at least Empress to know who these people are a [...]

    9. Read: November 2015Rating: 4/5 starsIt has been almost three years since I finished Kate Quinn's Empress of Rome trilogy and I almost didn't pick this novella up as I didn't think I would remember enough about the characters and the storyline for it to be an engaging read. I'm glad I did though as everything came back to me easily while I was reading.The novella is really split into three separate stories focusing on a different character from the previous trilogy and how everyone is trying to c [...]

    10. I don't actually know why I've rated it 4 stars instead of 5. Maybe because there wasn't enough story to make it completely engrossing as the rest of Kate's novels are. Yes, it's because I needed more. And I'm so excited to say that as a diehard Kate Quinn fan, I'm finally letting myself read the final book in the Ancient Rome series. To prepare myself for the intense ride that always comes with one of her novels, I read this delicious treat about Vix, Titus and Sabina. Yes, it was delightful an [...]

    11. This was a wonderful little snippet of a story, three chapters in all, that help to bridge the gap between Kate Quinn's "Empress of the Seven Hills" and her newest release, "Lady of the Eternal City". It's been three years since I read the former and so I really appreciated the opportunity to be able to refresh my mind on the story and the characters by reading this. These were essentially supposed to be three chapters from the "Lady of the Eternal City" novel itself but Ms. Quinn explains that [...]

    12. I am so thankful that Kate Quinn come out with this little short! I am so excited for her next book! She is absolutely one of my favorite authors to read, she makes her characters seem real and I find myself easily rooting for them and hoping for good things to happen to some and others to die. I love Kate Quinn that is all I can really say. Except that every historical fiction fan should read her books!

    13. Vix, Sabina, and Titus are back with these teasing snippets and a sneak peak of chapter one in the new Empress of Rome series. Reading about them again has made me realise how I miss their story !! I can not wait for book 4 !!!! - Lady of the Eternal City

    14. 3 short vignettes and oh how I missed these characters. I don't think I realized how much until I read this. I was immediately swept back into their Rome, their troubles and emotions. I really must read Lady of the Eternal City soon but I'm so worried for everyone! Kate Quinn is such a wonderful descriptive writer. I love her words and her historical visions.

    15. A nice story that bridges the gap between "Empress of the Seven Hills" to "Lady of the Eternal City". Even though I re-read the former, it was a great refresher into some of the most prominent characters from the last book as they find themselves wondering how their lives will change now that Hadrian has become emperor.

    16. Three short vignettes that cover a few events between books 3 and 4 of the Empress of Rome series. Don’t read unless you have read books 1-3.Nice to Nessus again - good for him for lasting longer than most of the characters!

    17. This is the second short story I've read by Kate Quinn and I'm sold. I've just ordered "Mistress of Rome" on my kindle.

    18. Sada kada sam pročitao nastavak knjige koju tek treba da čitam (tipično za mene), preostaje mi jedino da uronim u "Gospodaricu Rima", a kako ću dočekati prevod "Gospe od Večnog Grada", ne znam. Ovo je cliffhanger kakvog nije bilo ni u "Ljubavnici Rima". Izuzetna kratka priča, onima kojima ne smeta da čitaju na engleskom preporučujem da je potraže. Inače, na Internetu se može naći besplatna verzija, a i na Kindle-u se ne plaća.

    19. My first introduction to Kate Quinn's writing was Empress of the Seven Hills, the third book in her Empress of Rome series, and since then I have gobbled up both of her novels in her Borgias series, The Serpent and the Pearl and The Lion and the Rose. Ms. Quinn has an exceptional ability to create these incredibly endearing yet flawed characters that you just can't help but love. Now with her fourth book in The Empress of Rome series, Lady of the Eternal City, coming out she has gifted her reade [...]

    20. This was a quick read. It's a series of three short scenes, featuring Vix, Sabina, and Titus, that take place after Empress of the Seven Hills but before Lady of the Eternal City. I've been looking forward to the release of Lady of the Eternal City, so this was a great read to whet my appetite for that book and to refresh my memory on where each of the characters stand.

    21. It has been quite some time since I have read any of the Empress of Rome series books, however, this short story prequel to book four certainly brought me quickly back. I was immediately reminded of why I enjoy Quinn's writing and characters (well, enjoy would not be the correct word for some of them). Vix's circumstances were well-drawn and I cannot help but hope for a good outcome in book four, though I suspect there will not be good news. I do recommend this to those who enjoy the series, esp [...]

    22. I know this review is about a week later than when I read the three vignettes, but I really enjoyed them. It gives a little more insight into Vix, Sabina and Titus's lives between Empress of the Seven Hills and Lady of the Eternal City. Although I read Lady of the Eternal City before I read this, and picked up on certain elements that are brought to light in The Three Fates, I was still intrigued by Vix's dilemma and Titus' wedding day. As always, well done!

    23. I don't think it's fair for me to rate a short story that is so short it's stretching the limits on what is counted as a short story, but definitely read this if you're invested in the series and in Vix, Sabina and Titus. And even if you're not, if you're reading this series, why not just read it? It's free, and honestly just takes like 15 minutes to read.

    24. 'The Three Fates' by Kate Quinn (3.5/4). I love the Empress of Rome series and raced through this little collection of three prequel stories taking place in between 'Empress of the Seven Hills' and the hotly anticipated 'Lady of the Eternal City'. Excellent but just made me want LotEC all the more!

    25. This was an excellent novella!! I am super excited to read Lady of the Eternal City after reading these three short stories. Kate Quinn has the true gift of writing because she can suck me into a story even if it is only a few short pages.

    26. Kate Quinn you minx you, giving us just enough to leave us wanting moreI hate when you read the "in between" novels and they end so quickly that you're mad that you finished it alreadyon to the next!

    27. The author kindly filled in the story between two of her novels. A tease, but appreciated nevertheless. Empress Sabina and Emperor Hadrian are famous. It's fun to read about what else was going on in Rome at the same time.
