The Fates Entwine quintet or the Of Blood, Mud And Bones quintet is a five book fantasy/werewolf story. Spread across a timeline of more than four decades, all five books feature a different couple with female character ranging from a sweet belle with a tortured past, to a heartless beauty lusting for revenge too weak to control even herself.
Of course we have the male characters, they too ranging from the sweet one, the indifferent one, the bloodthirsty one and two more.
Book 1 | The Fallen And The Forgotten

One day, when the plot of an old villain who has terrorized this world for decades, succeeds, it is up to Isobella to save this beautiful man and the people whom she has come to like.

Book 5 | The Willful And The Woeful
The balance of their world gone, it is not just the werewolves who are suffering. The oceans are turning murky, Goddess Elvima is missing. The ploy of the villain is in its final stages. If someone can’t be killed, force them onto their side, maim and kill all who come in their way.
And caught in the middle of this struggle is Marelaine who has it fated to never experience romantic love. It’s okay, she has her daughter for company, but why won’t this infuriating man let her go?!
Okay, so… Although I have a very good idea of how the first four books play out, the last one… I do have an idea what happens but will I be able to give the series a conclusion with the fifth book? Don’t know. Which is why it is unknown is this series will have five books or six….
Yeah. The books work according to a mixed timeline. Ideally, you should read the books in series, but you can read the first four books in any order, only the last book has to be read at last. Can also be read as single books, but that will mean cliffhanger ends to one or two of them, one might even call them tragic ends.
