The Chemistry of Fate Book Review
The Chemistry of Fate
by Meradeth Houston
“They are everywhere, can be anyone, and are always the last person you’d expect.” When Tom stumbles across his grandfather’s journal, he’s convinced the old man was crazier than he thought. The book contains references to beings called the Sary, immortals who are assigned to save humans on the verge of suicide. They certainly aren’t allowed to fall in love with mortals. Which the journal claims Tom’s grandfather did, resulting in his expulsion from the Sary. As strange as the journal seems, Tom can’t get the stories out of his head; especially when he finds the photo of his grandfather’s wings.
Tom’s only distraction is Ari, the girl he studies with for their chemistry class.
Ari has one goal when she arrives in town: see how much Tom knows about the Sary and neutralize the situation. This isn’t a normal job, but protecting the secrecy of the Sary is vital. If Tom is a threat to exposing the Sary to the public, fate has a way of taking care of the situation, usually ending with the mortal’s death. While Ari spends time with Tom, he becomes more than just an assignment, but how far can a relationship go when she can’t tell him who she really is? When she finds out just how much Tom actually knows about the Sary, Ari is forced to choose between her wings, and her heart.
THE CHEMISTRY OF FATE is a companion to COLORS LIKE MEMORIES and is set before the latter takes place.
This is the first book I have read from Meradeth Houston. If Colors Like Memories is anything like The Chemistry of Fate then I am sure I will love it. Ari is a Sary sent on an assignment to find out what Tom knows about the Sary. As they get to know each other and spending more time together they start to fall in love. The more Ari finds out what Tom knows the more she feels like she has to protect him but instead things start going very wrong for both of them. I really liked that Tom and Ari's relationship was not wild and crazy it seemed more sweet and innocent. Every chapter switches from Tom to Ari's point of view so you know how they both feel. It is a very beautiful and romantic story.
