Waiting on Wednesday (#14)

"Waiting on" Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases.
What if your destiny was to kill the one you love?

One moment. One foolish desire. One mistake. And Corinthe lost everything.

She fell from her tranquil life in Pyralis Terra and found herself exiled to the human world. Her punishment? To make sure people’s fates unfold according to plan. Now, years later, Corinthe has one last assignment: kill Lucas Kaller. His death will be her ticket home.

But for the first time, Corinthe feels a tingle of doubt. It begins as a lump in her throat, then grows toward her heart, and suddenly she feels like she’s falling all over again—this time for a boy she knows she can never have. Because it is written: one of them must live, and one of them must die.

In a universe where every moment, every second, every fate has already been decided, where does love fit in?
I love the concept of fate and destinies, of different paths but ultimately ending up on the same one, even if you detoured for a little while. It's always that question of what if? What if that didn't happen, would I be were I am now? Are two people destined to be together, no matter what? I find it fascinating so Fates should hopefully be an interesting read.
What are you waiting on? :)
