About Rachel Firasek

Rachel Firasek grew up in the south and despite the gentle pace, she harassed life at full steam. Her curiosity about mythology, human nature, and the chemical imbalance we call love led her to writing. Her stories began with macabre war poems and shifted to enchanted fairytales, before she settled on a blending of the two.

Today you’ll find her tucked on a small parcel of land, surrounded by bleating sheep and barking dogs, with her husband and children. She entertains them all with her wacky sense of humor or animated reenactments of bad 80’s dance moves.

She’s intrigued by anything unexplained and seeks the answers to this crazy thing we call life. You can find her where the heart twists the soul and lights the shadows… or at www.rachelfirasek.com

Review by: janae vanderwoude on June 26, 2012 :
I received this book from Smashwords and it took me a while to sit down actually read it. I am so glad I finally did this book was really good. Chloe is strong, tough and hard headed goddess. She is one of the three fates alongside her sisters. She is sent by her father Zeus down to earth to find her sisters but what she soon faces could either break her heart or be with the man she is fated to be with.


This book is a whirlwind of romance, love, and hot schmexy passion. The tension between these two is pretty intense. In the beginning I was a bit shocked at how fast Dane and Chloe started to fall for each other. It was a little bit too much too soon and made it a kinda hard to relate to. But in the end it worked well. I wish there was some more bones to the story and some more background info so I could truly understand Chloe's heartbreak and her loss. Dane was a fun hot character and really liked him for Chloe. They made a good match. But I definitely recommend this short novella for any one looking for a great romantic easy read. I give it 3 stars!

I'm Hooked!

Giving her heart to a mortal wasn't something the First Fate planned. Losing him nearly shattered her soul. Upon his death, Clotho swore never to love—or weave life—again. Hoping she'll change her mind before it's too late, Zeus commands the spinner of life to take a much needed vacation from her immortal responsibilities.


Dane is close to cracking the drug ring he's spent the last two years infiltrating, but needs to perform one last heist to meet the head man and prevent an impending war. An undercover agent, he’s now on the run from drug lords, thieves and with the very woman whose tears make him forget his purpose. (Author description)


Creating Fate is a light, easy, enjoyable read. I loved Chloe and the man she stumbles into, Dane. Their relationship plays out under the tension of being pursued by criminals. At first Chloe thinks Dane is no better than those persuing them, but he is not all he seems to be on the surface.


The criminal element is secondary to the relationship, which is the way it should be, I believe, with the emphasis being on the conflict between Chloe and Dane and Chloe and her father and stepmother. The author makes it easy to be transported into the world of the Greek Gods and the whole story is viable and interesting.


I read this in a couple of very enjoyable sittings, the author does a great job of creating and maintaining the two worlds. I’m hooked and look forward to the remaining two parts and reading more by Rachael Firasek.

Review by: Nese Lane on June 11, 2012 :
Rachel Firasek as done it again! Creating Fate is a fast paced, sexy read with deep lovable characters.

Clotho suffers from an abysmal grief of a lost love. She's torn between the closness she feels for the sister/fate responsible and her fury at the injustice of destiny. The time she spends with Dane draws her out of her depression and shows her that even a fate has to have love to create life.

As an undercover cop, Dane's long involment in the dark underworld of drugs and corruption has him questioning his moral compass. A brief moment of compassion for Chloe, forces him to protect the woman that brought forth the last glimmer of his humanity.

Together they embark on a tumultuous journey that has them reevaluating life choices and taking on the gods and fates in order to fulfill their place in destiny.

Bravo! Great Read!

Creating Fate is a short romance, but long on vivid emotions and cool characters. I love Rachel's stories and her writing style. She keeps the reader turning the pages or in my instance, tapping the right side of my screen. 5 Stars from me!

Creating fate is book one in the Trilogy of the Unspun series. Eagerly awaiting the email, I devoured this in one sitting. The three books will be a series but all written by different authors, and I must admit that Rachel is one of my all-time favourite authors, grasping at my heartstrings with her last series of the Phoenix’s.

The Fates are a mixture of mythology and romance. Each Fate having their own purpose. In Creating Fate – Clotho – Chloe‘s, gift is to create new life – the bearer of beginnings.

Clotho is sad – she had lost her love, a human whom she loved very deeply and has decided that she will no longer spin fate – or create a new life. Zeus knows something is up and sends Chloe to earth to find her sisters and bring them home. Here she meets Dane – he sees her tears and he finds he is drawn to her. On a whirlwind of events, Dane and Chloe are put on a path of discovery and love. But will they survive the danger lurking around each corner they turn and will the Fates take away her one true chance of love and happiness. ?

Creating Fate was a short story, filled with mystery, mythology and intrigue. I have enjoyed Rachel Firasek's books much so and this one is no different. It had me hooked from the very first pages, her characters all draw you into the story, her vivid descriptions creating that vat that no only sucks you into her world but has you feeling every detail within.

I enjoyed the Characters that Rachel created; Dane was certainly a hotty, dark and mysterious but also had that secret about him throughout the story that kept me intrigued. I enjoyed his softer side and also his protective side towards Chloe. He was a warrior at heart. My heart melted at the kindess he showed her even though she was one stubborn woman lol.

Chloe was hard headed, strong willed yet full of love to give and filled with many little secrets . The romance between Dane and Chloe was magnetic, and alluring. ** waggles eyebrows** not as much heat as Rachel normally puts into her reads, but still very much enjoyable ;)
I enjoyed the paranormal elements within, the storyline ran smoothly and kept my interested piqued to the end.

An ending Im sure all the readers will be happy with, Im eager to read the rest in the series.

Creating Fate gives us Gods, heroes, romance and action. Dynamic characters and a compelling storyline that draws you not only into the world Rachel has created but wandering where Fate will show up next !
