Prophecies don’t untangle themselves.

Just ask Ikepela Ives, whose estranged mother left her with the power to unravel the binding threads of fate. Stuck with immortal power in a mortal body, Ives has turned her back on the duty she never wanted.

But it turns out she can’t run from her fate forever, not now that Ragnarok has been set in motion and the god at the center of that tangled mess has gone missing. With a ragtag group of companions—including a brownie, a Valkyrie, and the goddess of death herself—Ives embarks on her first official mission as Fate Cipher—to save the world from doomsday.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Edit: Apparently I didn’t understand it as well as I thought I did. I was discussing the book with another reader and I guess I was a little more confused than I thought I initially was. I feel that has changed what I knew to be significant in moving the plot forward as well as character development… I thought two of the main characters were sisters? I thought they shared the same dad? And the titles everyone held?

I still adored the writing style which was playful and compelling, reflecting the adventurous nature of the plot. With a spin on mythological characters consisting of both a mesh of creative and original thought, I enjoyed the introduction and intermingling of each role and the pacing throughout the book.

And the bits of humor, many of which were relative to my childhood, along with modern day perspective, added a unique freshness to legendary aspects of tales that are fun to be told. I spent quite some time cross-checking and appreciating the glossary, which led me into several fascinating Wikipedia spirals, adding to my excitement for the next book.
