Zeus gave her one simple job: Kill every human. Atropos-daughter of Zeus and the third goddess of Fate from Greek mythology -spends her eternal life snipping human lifelines when their mortal lives are over. As if being a killer doesn't make life miserable enough, she and her Fate-wielding sisters must live amongst the humans on Earth thanks to a long-running feud between their mother and Zeus. Living on Earth means they must mingle with the mortals, attend the local high school, and attempt to fit in-or at least not stand out too much.

However, when Alex Morgan walks into her first-period English class, she knows she's in for trouble. He's the worst kind of human for her to like-one with a rapidly approaching expiration date. And he makes Atropos want to break all the rules. 

I became a writer at the age of six when my parents bought me a child’s typewriter for Christmas and agreed to pay me a penny per page for any stories I churned out.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So Many Emotions Good grief, where do I start? Okay, first things out of the way: This is a fun, interesting take on the Fates from Greek mythology. I really enjoyed how they lived their lives and that Atropos was the one who got the short end of the stick. This was definitely an emotional journey that hit a little too close to home for me in some aspects. It had a few sweet moments, especially as Atropos let her guard down and allowed sweetheart Alex into her life. She was a great lead character and I could really relate to her. I enjoyed most of it. However, a word of warning: This one of those books that is meant to break your soul. Seriously, it shows no mercy. If anything can go wrong here, it will go explosively wrong. I'm all for characters being put in terrible situations and struggling to get through them, but it was almost too much here.
