Review: Fate Forgotten (Fate of the Gods #2) by Amalia Dillin

Since the gods returned Adam's memory six hundred years ago, Thor has been a scourge on his lives. But when Adam learns that Thor has been haunting his steps out of love for Eve, he is determined to banish the thunder god once and for all. Adam is no fool: Eve still loves the man she knew as Thorgrim, and if she ever learned he still lived, that he still loved her, Adam would lose any chance of winning Eve to his side, never mind liberating the world. But after everything Thor has done to protect Eve, everything he's sacrificed, the thunder god won't go without a fight. Not as long as Eve might love him again.

Which means that Adam has to find a new ally. The enemy of his enemy, complete with burning sword and righteous resentment of the gods. But in order to attract the Archangel Michael's attention, he needs Eve -- an unmarried Eve, willing to give him the benefit of the doubt.

It shouldn't be too difficult to find her in the future. Not now that he knows how to look.

I really enjoyed this book. I felt it was even better than the first one really showing how intertwined the fates of the many gods, Eve and Adam was in this story. The writing and transitioning between time periods is seamless and the plot kept me interested and ready to see what was waiting around the corner. I feel this book earned a well deserved 5 stars.

The book has past, present and future chapters. The past mainly focuses on Thor, the present focuses on Thor, Eve and Adam and all of their family and then the future focuses mainly on Adam and Eve. I have to say the future part was not what I was expecting and to think there will be another book. I can’t wait to see where the author takes this story in the next installment.

My favorite character is Thor but of course he has always fascinated me being the god of thunder and lightning. However I find myself wanting to see what Adam is up to and what he is thinking. He is a very complex character. He starts off as the bad guy but then once you get further in the series you find yourself thinking “Is he really the bad guy or not?”.

The past chapters really helped fill in some blank spots in Eve’s history as well as Thor’s. Some of her past was good and some bad. I also really liked how easily the author transitioned from one time period to the next without causing confusion or having to re-read any parts.

All in all this is a really interesting series to get into with a really unique twist on Adam & Eve. It is a great read and I look forward to the next book!
