It's over 500 pages of spinners, reapers, love, loss, magic, mythology, hell, and demons. The Fate (Book 1) The thread of life is a delicate thing. It is so easily broken… My name is Penn, and I’m a spinner. As one of the three Fates, it’s easy for me to know the plans for the lives of the humans. Mine, on the other hand, is a bit foggier. I guess things started to get out of control when I spun her—Kismet. My focus shifted, one thing led to another, and I wound up banished to Earth. You’d think it’d be pretty hard to surprise me, but after my banishment, they just kept hitting me like a one-two knockout punch. When the people around me started dying before their time, I knew something was very wrong and I had to do whatever I could to set it right. The one thing I didn’t know was…what is the true fate of a Fate? The Reaper (Book 2) "The Thread of life is a delicate thing. It is so easily broken..." My name is Michaela, and I'm a Reaper. I help the humans transition from their home on Earth after they die. Up until a short time ago, things were going well. But then, one of our best Fates was banished to Earth, people started dying before their time, and things went rapidly downhill from there. Just when I thought things couldn't get any worse, I found seven misplaced souls trapped in the depths of hell. It didn't matter to me who had put them there, or even why they had. All I knew was I had to get them out. I couldn't just leave them there to suffer. Who knew trying to find out and fix what had gone so horribly wrong would end with me surrounded by misfit Fates while racing through the depths of hell? Trying to save not only the seven trapped souls, but also the entire human race, is not exactly in my job description... The Human (Book 3) “The thread of life is a delicate thing. It is so easily broken…” Michaela’s gone. Disappeared. And I’m lost without her. She left to bring a child into the heavens and vanished, along with two Archangels. As I search for answers, I keep uncovering more questions. Why is the human cutting threads? How do we stop her? More importantly, how can I save Michaela? I’m trapped. The human took me. And Penn has no idea where I am. That woman, she… well, I’m not even sure what she did. All I know is one minute, the Archangels were there, and the next, they weren’t. She’s proving to be a powerful adversary, that’s for sure. With a child just added to the prison, I need to find my way out of here to end this. More than just their souls depend on me. The fate of the Earth will not crumble at the hands of a mere human.

    Good trilogy, fast read :-) Enjoyable trilogy. The plot was simple but with enough twists to keep my interest along the way. The characters were very well developed. A 3.5 stars overall :-)

    Well that's about four hours of my life I won't get back, but since it was four hours spent on a plane, they were counted as lost anyway. This 3-chaptered novel (because that's what it is - the cliffhangers at the ends of parts 1 & 2 are even more egregious than is usual in a fantasy series) is set within a cosmology that includes elements of Greek mythology (notably the 3 Fates) merged with a version of Christianity, heavily filtered through American pop culture.

This 3-chaptered novel (because that's what it is - the cliffhangers at the ends of parts 1 & 2 are even more egregious than is usual in a fantasy series) is set within a cosmology that includes elements of Greek mythology (notably the 3 Fates) merged with a version of Christianity, heavily filtered through American pop culture. God is a remote bureaucrat along the lines of "Heaven Can Wait" (or "Here Comes Mr. Jordan"), whence we also get the plot point of the too-early death. This God runs what appears to be a sort of human-processing shop, in an area of the heavens behind a third gate between those of Heaven and Hell. Purgatory, which we would expect to be that third gate, is disused (to say it's "in limbo" would just confuse everybody... ) and instead rather illogically housed within Hell, chiefly for the narrative convenience of allowing the principal characters to have Hellish adventures on their way to and from the Halloween castle shackled dungeon. I don't mind cosmological fantasy, but this one is really not all that well thought through, and that makes the final trial and fate of the ultimate (human) villain a bit risible to me, I'm afraid. You will not convince this atheist that complete extinction, which is what she is doomed to, is worse than an infinity of the tortures of Hell, which would presumably be her "normal" fate. This is all the more uncomfortable when juxtaposed against her actual sin, which is going to extremes to preserve life in a suffering child who should be humanely allowed to die. This was (I believe) a free Kindle offering, and I sometimes wonder with these things whether I should, instead of criticism, apply the much more generous standards of fan-fiction non-criticism, since it's essentially "gift literature." But I do wish this author's kind, non-critical editors had explained to her that "opaque" does not mean "transparent". Worse, the error appears in both the first and the final book, so it was allowed to slide even after the first part was published. Two stars as opposed to one, merely because, although the control of tone was iffy, the spelling and grammar were generally correct, and despite the occasional howler like "opaque", the only major objection I had to the diction was careless repetition of the same descriptive word within the same passage without any rhetorical justification. You get what you pay for.

    Children of Wisdom Trilogy is a set of three books by author Stephanie Erickson. The main focus of the stories is on Penn, a fate who spins threads to be woven into the tapestry of life. One day, he spins an incredible thread of life for a girl he calls Kismet. She's amazing from the beginning - bright, pink, full of life and zest. His whole focus changes, and he's ultimately tossed from heaven and sent to earth to experience mortal life. Through a series of events, he finds Kismet.

The it's not what you think is what kept me going on this series. The writing and the story are sweet and a little innocently written, but things happen all over the place and it kept my interest in the story enough to continue on. Seriously, meshing up heaven and fates, that is a tall order. It's currently on KU. and if you have that, for sure give it a read. If not, then buy it and try it out for yourself!

    Having the trilogy was a bonus- I could read through the whole sequence and get thoroughly immersed in the story, which I thoroughly enjoyed as a "greedy" holiday read. Well developed characters, would like to follow some of them further... recommended if you like other-worldly genre, with some mildly challenging moral issues to think about.

    Wow What a change. Love, loyalty, adventure, choices, mystery this series has it all. A well written story reminding the reader that no matter what your going through hope and diligence and God’s help you will get through anything. The right people will be placed in your path to guide you. Love this story.

    I picked up this trilogy as part of a book deal. Had I paid full price for the first book, I probably would have ended there. It wasn't an unpleasant read (it was a fast read), but it wasn't a high-quality read. The cosmology of the book annoyed me and wasn't very original, the heroic characters were a bit flat and far too human for "heavenly beings", and the bad guys were not fleshed out all that well. I stuck with it mainly out of curiosity. All that said, were I to have a sit-down with the aut I picked up this trilogy as part of a book deal.

    This story is about Penn who gets banished to Earth, I will not give any spoilers as it ruins things for others, but it is a brilliant read.

    *given ARCs from the author in exchange for an honest review* I really liked this series. A new way of looking at the Fates, and one particularly captured my heart. The Fate was a really sweet, romantic story even though there was a high chance that he wouldn't get the girl. The Reaper took on the action-packed aspect with a new POV, and it ended with The Human, a few bittersweet moments to tie up loose ends. A series worth reading. *given ARCs from the author in exchange for an honest review* I really liked this series. A new way of looking at the Fates, and one particularly captured my heart.

    This is absolutely the most amazing trilogy I have read so far! The characters are fascinating and the storyline is one of the most creative I have read in many years. Stephanie builds her characters and wraps them in wonderful words that pull you into their world. Join Penn as he and the heavens fight to save the world. Definitely a must read!!!!

    Wonderful and Unique This collection is not the type I normally read; however, I am so glad I did. Everything about it (premise, characters, storyline, etc.) is unique, wonderfully developed and integrated, and expertly written. I highly recommend this series and will definitely look for more by this author.

    Three Interesting Stories While this book doesn't reflect my view of the divine, I enjoyed it nonetheless. I was raised believing in Free Will. But perhaps that is a gift of the Fates.

    Devoured! If Stephanie Erickson had not written this world, I would have! So I am really glad she did - because I haven't been able to write one yet, so it may never have happened! This trilogy is more like one giant book, and if there is any criticism I could give, it would be that none of the 3 books are standalone - if you read the first, you have to read all 3 to get the story. Otherwise, these are pretty much the best I've read in a long, long time. Excellent setting - I just love it - excelle Devoured! If Stephanie Erickson had not written this world, I would have!

    Interesting twist on an old tale Loved the characters... The depth and thought that was put into each one, even the minor players. This is a tale of love and loss, good and evil, and even things that may seem to be fate can change in ways no one would expect! A great read from a fabulous writer.

    Caught... I tried to think of one word that would summarize what happened to me when I started reading this trilogy and caught was it. The author caught me with her writing style. She caught me up in each characters personality and what happened to them in their lives. I normally don't read book that involve God but I was caught by this trilogy. Kudos to Stephanie Erickson for writing such fantastic books! Caught... I tried to think of one word that would summarize what happened to me when I started reading this trilogy and caught was it.

    A Mythological Mishmash This trilogy attempts to combine Grim Reapers with the Greek myth of the Fates. About halfway through I got really lost in the overall plot. Had to backtrack to keep it right n my head but still I had difficulties following the story.
