What would you do if you held Fate in your hands? 17-year old Macy Lockhart has the weight of the world on her shoulders. For thousands of years, she has been a Keeper in the ancient organization, the Order of the Moirae... and she literally holds fate in her hands. But this is something that she forgets because her memories are wiped clean in every life until it is time for her cycle to start again. For the last two thousand years, this has never been a problem. Until now. And now...Fate, the very thing that Macy was born to keep, is being challenged and she has only one choice: To return to a previous life to fix it; a life where she was Cleopatra's handmaiden, Charmian. And that's not all. Unless she interferes with the fabric of time, the very thing she has returned to repair, her soul mate will die leading Marc Antony's forces against Rome. Can she really stand aside and allow the love of her life to die all over again?

Three stars: I enjoyed this book and recommend it with some reservations.
What would you do if you held fate in your hands and had the ability to change destiny? Our heroine Macy/ Charmaine grapples with this monumental question. Macy is not a normal seventeen year old, she is a Keeper belonging to an ancient magical order known as the Moirae. Macy is destined to guide her ward, someone of great historical importance predetermined to change history. Unfortunately, people decided for historic greatness have shortened lives with tragic endings and she too suffers the same demise. She is reborn time and time again with her memory swept clean; to follow her set path.Read more ›
Cole begins her tale where a lot of YA novels start. Macy is a typical teenager. She has a boyfriend who has broken her heart and she has a best friend who gives her love and support. That is pretty much where the similarities end. She soon finds out that nothing is as it seems and she has lived several lives before this one. The journey that she eventually takes is amazing.
Every Last Kiss is a combination of fantasy and historical YA fiction. When Macy gets sent back in time to the life that she spent with Cleopatra as Charmian, you can't help but get swept up in the story right along with her. The imagery and emotion that is created just draws you in.
The story weaves and turns and keeps you turning pages just to see exactly what the mystery is behind Macy/Charmian and the power that surrounds her. It took me a while to read this one, but it wasn't because it was a slow read. I'm not sure why because the descriptions and action were flowing. A lot happened in Every Last Kiss and by the end there were some secrets revealed, but still a lot to learn. It took me by surprise when I found myself in tears near the end. Macy/Charmian was a very easy character to sympathize with and you almost felt as if you even knew Cleopatra a little better by the time you were finished. It gave her a human side, even though it was fiction, that will never have me look at that point in history exactly the same way.
Needless to say, I will be checking out the rest of this series. Cole's writing style is very easy to read and get emotionally vested in. Well worth the read.
