While I have loved the way Loki has been portrayed in the first three books, I still love what the author has done here. In this story, the focus is more on Amy; however, she ends up finding out that parallel universes DO indeed exist! THAT is all I can say so that I won't spoil your enjoyment of this story. This story will blow your mind! Don't take my word for it - read it for yourself!
C Gockel has become one of my new favorite authors, and this series is now a favorite! I can't wait to read the next one! (I went and bought all of the books in the series just based on my love of the FIRST book - and I am loving it more and more the deeper I dive into this series!
The books aren't long and they do tend to cliffhanger but that doesn't bother me.
This book contains no sex scenes, and virtually no swearing. That said, it has adult situations, and mentions of mythological tales.
Interesting twist on the myths. Loki is the HERO. It was great to see Loki personified in these books.
The characters are richly drawn and it is easy to suspend disbelief about the existence of gods and magic. The slow reveal of more and more Norse mythology tie-ins to current day life was just really cool.
Ms. Gockel is proof that the self published authors can put out something every bit as good as the big name publishers. I'm keeping this author on my watch list.
If you haven't read the I Bring the Fire Parts I, II,III, you will be confused by this episode, so read them first and you'll really enjoy this book. Amy and Steve Rogers of the ADUO meet in an alternate reality where Amy was killed instead of surviving a gunshot. An alternate Loki shows up, under Cera's control. Jump into another reality, Amy discovers she's pregnant! And this Loki isn't HER Loki either. Will she be able to get back home? Or will she jump from one reality to another? No spoilers, but there's a Part IV...
This book was amazing and a bit confuzzeling to say the least :) I really enjoyed that it was all about Amy and the odd things that happen to her. I don't want to say too much and give anything away so i will just say do not skip this book or read it out of order. I can't wait to read the next one Fates : I Bring the Fire Part IV: The Hunt for Loki is On !!!
***This series is suitable for adult readers
However, it deals with pregnancy and uses alternate universe hopping to explore the outcomes of various choices. It may be a tough read depending on your politics or history. It is a brave, well written story that explores very difficult issues. It might be cathartic, or too tough to get through. Or boring, if your life has never brushed up against the possibility of having children.

I read this book in order in the series and recommend if this tickles your fancy you begin with Wolves and work your way through.
