Excerpt from Hindsight


On her own for the first time, Grace has come into her full powers as an immortal and has taken up the mantle offered by her father, Prometheus. 

Leaving behind everything and everyone she loves, Grace has become a pawn in a dangerous game that threatens to undo a centuries old truce between the Gods and the Fae. 

On the brink of war Grace must choose to stand either with Chris and Phoenix of the Fae or with her father and the rest of the immortal Olympian Gods. Can Grace find a way to repair the damage that's been done? Or will she become the Harbinger that the Gods of Fate predicted?


Hindsight is the third book in the Gods of Fate, young adult fantasy series by Sherry D. Ficklin. Book three continues the story of Grace Archer, the daughter of Prometheus. Readers are treated to the return of well loved characters in this one, as well as, a satisfying conclusion to the series. Ficklin is at her best in this novel!

The final book in the Gods of Fate series, Hindsight is everything readers expect from Sherry Ficklin. Believable, realistic charcters, adventure, issues that young adults face on a daily basis, and most of all quaility, entertaining writing. I have reviewed all three of the books in this series, and Hindsight is definitely my favorite, which is saying a lot.

Ficklin has always excelled at creating characters that young adult readers can identify with. Grace is just like any other girl, except for the fact that she has some nifty immortal powers. She still faces the same things other girls face, from young love to problems with her parents. Where the changes come in, is the fact that she's in the middle of a war between the Olympian Gods and the Fae and she is learning a lot about sacrifice, the hard way. What would you be willing to sacrifice for love?

This is a book about choices. Knowing what's important to you and being willing to stand up for what you believe is right. I thought Ficklin did a fantastic job of bringing these issues to the forefront, while still keeping the book light and entertaining. I have always loved mythology and this series just seems to hit the right spot for me. Though it is a young adult book I'm sure there are other adults like myself who enjoy this kind of book. It is certainly suitable for all ages.

I highly recommend this series, and this book in particular. Ficklin is a write to keep an eye on, she's one of the up and coming!

Hindsight is available NOW from your favorite bookseller.

I'm giving this one 5 out of 5 apples from my book bag!
