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.
Killing and mingling don't mix, which is why Atropos' number-one rule is to avoid all relationships with the humans. Caring for the people she has to kill is a fast track to insanity. 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.

"True followers of mythological tales will be utterly amazed and dazzled with the twists and turns in what appears to be the first installment for this series."
- IND'Tale Magazine, November 2016
The characters are phenomenally well written and the story-line is incredible and magical.

There are books you love, then there are works of art like Broken Fate... Each and every character has been flawlessly written, and has layers upon layers of emotion, I feel like it should be impossible to be as emotionally attached as I became to Broken Fate.
- Doris Orman, Dowie's Place
I love reading new stories about tales you think you know everything about. This one was no different, finding out a new story about the goddesses, The Fates. Once I started the book, I could not put it down and was laughing and crying through the entire story.

Jennifer Derrick definitely knows how to write characters vibrantly and extremely well. The characters that we are meant to love, I loved.. The characters that we are meant to hate, I despised.
