Read The Library of Fates Online Free - No one is entirely certain what brings the Emperor Sikander to Shalingar. Until now, the idyllic kingdom has been immune to his many violent conquests. To keep the visit friendly, Princess Amrita has offered herself as his bride, sacrificing everything—family, her childhood love, and her freedom—to save her people. But her offer isn’t enough.
The palace is soon under siege, and Amrita finds herself a fugitive, utterly alone but for an oracle named Thala, who was kept by Sikander as a slave and managed to escape amid the chaos. With nothing and no one else to turn to, Amrita and Thala are forced to rely on each other. But while Amrita feels responsible for her kingdom and sets out to warn her people, the newly free Thala has no such ties. She encourages Amrita to go on a quest to find the fabled Library of All Things, where it is possible for each of them to reverse their fates. To go back to before Sikander took everything from them.
Stripped of all that she loves, caught between her rosy past and an unknown future, will Amrita be able to restore what was lost, or does another life—and another love—await?

The last 25% of this book deserves 5 stars on its own because that was amazing. I had expected the plot to be yet another variation of a princess who's betrothed to an evil guy, feels powerless to change her fate, and is in love with her childhood best friend. But then it ended up going in a tota...

As soon as I saw the comparison to The Star Touched Queen and The Wrath and the Dawn, I was intrigued and had high expectations...sadly I was sort of disappointed.
Amrita and Thala are decent enough MCs. For a Princess on the run and a previously enslaved Seer, I figured there would be some fire,...

Well, colour me confused. To be perfectly honest, I'm not sure whether to recommend The Library of Fates or not.
First of all, I have to give credit where credit is due - this book is wonderfully descriptive. I loved the rich passages of scenery, and of the food - I go a little weak in the knees a...

That was, well, unexpected. It was full of twists and turns, fate and love. RTC.

Thank you Penguin for the review copy!
With a lush, opulent world, breathtaking plot, and endearing heroine, The Library of Fates was a wonderful read. I think the mention of The Star-Touched Queen in the blurb is very apt for this one - I can see aspec...

“I didn’t know then what I know now: that everything - my father, this moment, every experience that molds and shapes us - is ephemeral, evaporating into the air before we have a chance to grasp onto it, before we can truly even understand what it means.”
The Library of Fates is an emotionally...

Actual rating 3.5—
This book was absolutely gorgeous, with a richly imagined world and an epic, bloody, magical journey.
However, the writing was clunky at times and a lot of the plot points weren't fleshed out as well as I would have liked.
I'll write a full review soon.

I read an excerpt on NetGalley and it captivated me immediately, so I decided to read the book. I am a puddle of disappointment, to say the least. The Library of Fates plays with an intriguing concept, namely the mash-up of a fantasy kingdom with the historical world, and entails a lot of element...

A troubled kingdom--an inescapable fate--ancient mythology--that's basically everything I ever wanted in a book.
Open LIBRARY OF FATES and be transported to the mythical, magical country of Shalingar, where mystical vetalas, troubled oracles, irreverent goddesses, and megalomaniacal kings battle f...
