Spring in Gralvein brings Ealasaid peace. Six months to the day Raven found her shackled and tortured in the devil’s lair, their public handfasting is the happiest day of her life. But a storm is coming. Devils join King Eideard’s Guarda and watch Ealasaid constantly. Faolan’s spies report Lobhdain is plotting. What is this mystical artifact he searches for?

By the Fates, Fought is the second novel in the By the Fates trilogy. It contains several disturbing scenes, including brief descriptions of rape and torture and is meant for mature audiences. It ends on a cliffhanger. By the Fates, Fulfilled will be released in Fall of 2014

In the second instalment to Patricia Eddy’s By The Fates series, we join Ealasaid and Raven six months after Raven first found Ealasaid shackled and beaten. Lobhdain hasn’t given up though, he and his minions are plotting and they do anything and go through anyone until Lobhdain has what he wants.
This is the second book in the series, well third if you include the novella Destined. And I do, so read it. One of the things I love and well there are many things I love about Patricia’s books, but just the one right now. I love that she creates a fantasy world (I’m usually not the biggest fan of fantasy) that does not over power. There is just enough that you know that this world is fantasy; the language the characters use, the setting of the book and also the fact that everyone has some sort of magical ability. But she does just enough that I’m not thrown through a loop every new chapter busy trying to remember what words mean or being constantly introduced to new other world ways and meanings and settings. When I’m soaking in all those aspects I loose contact with the characters and the story. But Patricia doesn’t do that, she creates a new world different enough from ours that it pulls you into a whole new reality without getting you so lost you lose sight of what is important, which is the story. Which is one reason why I love this series, this book and Patricia Eddy, she managed to write a fantasy world that I love and want to come back to.
Another reason you should read this is because every character has strength in all aspects. Nothing is easy, characters have being torn down and have had to pull themselves back together, whilst fighting for the ones they love and they do that and at no point do you see any of them as weak. Ealasaid is one of my favourite heroines, hands down.
But I am a little angry…stupid ending, seriously? Stupid cliffhanger.
If you have read this far, you will not be surprised that I give this book five stars. Patricia manages to keep the excitement that you feel in the first book all the way through to the end of the second book. At no point does it loose steam. Roll on By The Fates, Fulfilled coming Fall 2014!
