Every Last Kiss by Courtney Cole (Bloodstone Saga #1)
Born a goddess. Controlled by the Fates. Can Macy’s love for her soul mate survive the bonds of time… and death?
17-year old Macy Lockhart is as far from normal as any one girl can be. The problem is, she doesn’t know it yet.
After a bloodstone pendant is mysteriously left on her door, Macy’s life begins to change in ways she’d never dreamed. And while she will eventually come to realize that nothing is ever what it seems, that her life is a tangled web of lies and the Fates themselves pull the strings, for now she is left with only the explanations that they offer her.
Macy is led to believe that if she doesn’t return to a previous doomed life, one in which she served as Queen Cleopatra ‘s handmaiden, the fate of the entire world will be threatened in a way that would destroy history as we know it. She learns that she has lived thousands of lives, each one ending tragically…but none as tragic as this one.
After returning to ancient Egypt, she is faced with heart-wrenching decisions. Unless she interferes with Fate’s plan, the very thing she was born to protect, her soul mate will die leading Marc Antony’s forces against Rome. Can she really stand aside and watch the love of her life die all over again?
In this fascinating novel-length prequel to The Bloodstone Saga, Courtney Cole sets the stage for an epic journey that will have readers holding their breath until the very last page of the very last book has been turned.
What would you do if you held Fate in your hands? From Goodreads.
Poor Macy or Charmian, in the now she is Macy but she is thrown back into a previous life of hers as Charmian, Cleopatra’s hand maiden and friend. She was just having one of those weeks, she found out her boyfriend cheated on her so she dumped him after 2 years worth of dating then she is sent back in time by a priest.
Meanwhile Macy is there and she is trying not to mess up the past but it is so hard for her since Annen, the priest, also brought a bad guy back from the dead to show her that the Fates can be changed. Still she was trying so hard to keep it the same. Eventually she has to tell Cleopatra, and then she tells Iras and Marc Antony because Iras was there and Antony saved her but had heard the conversation.
Throughout the story she is madly in love with Hasani, her soul mate. They spend time together and have been together since they were teenagers; they have not married only because of their duties. His to Antony and hers to Cleopatra but they are seen as married since they have been together for so long at that point. He is quite dreamy, warrior type that is gentle and oddly enough only has eyes for her in that time.
When she comes back, after setting everything right again, she is heartbroken because she lost Hasani, Cleopatra, and Antony. She was having a hard time going from one time to the other. When her best friends get her out of the house she runs into her ex, who seems to think that they are going to get back together. She of course tells him no, she knows out there that there is something better for her even if he isn’t around anymore. Or she thinks. Eventually she finds out that they will meet again. And they do! Gavin is new in town and she is just lucky enough to find him at a sandwich shop when she goes to get her mom lunch.
This book was amazing; there was mystery, love, comedy and drama. I was hooked throughout the whole story.
I give the first book 4 out of 5 stars.
