Over the past few thousand years, Fabio has come to hate his job. As Fate, he's in charge of assigning the fortunes and misfortunes that befall most of the human race - the 83 per cent who keep screwing things up. And with the steady rise in population since the first Neanderthal set himself on fire, he can't exactly take a vacation. Frustrated with his endless parade of drug addicts and career politicians, it doesn't help watching Destiny guide her people to Nobel Peace Prizes. To make matters worse, he has a five-hundred-year-old feud with Death, and his best friends are Sloth and Gluttony. And worst of all? He's just fallen in love with a human. Sara Griffen might be on Destiny's path, but Fabio keeps bumping into her - by accident at first, and then on purpose. Getting involved with her breaks Rule No. 1 - and about ten others - setting off some cosmic-sized repercussions that could strip him of his immortality...or lead to a fate worse than death.

I hate him. Someone I've loved my entire life hurt me deliberately. I never thought it'd be him that would destroy my heart out of all the guys on this planet, but he did. At one time he was one of my best friends. Where his sister was shy he was more like me, and it made things between us easy. From secret forts made out of chairs and blankets to pretending we were pirates on our parents' yacht, I always thought he'd be the one. We'd grow up and he'd realize how perfect for each other we are. Our pretend weddings still live vibrantly in my mind. Every old notebook has doodles of our names in hearts scribbled on the pages. But then the inevitable happened. We grew up. Things didn't turn out the way I thought they would. Another girl caught his eye and suddenly I was just his little sister's best friend. I've been trying hard to get his attention ever since. Makeup. Revealing clothes. Hair always perfect. Hook-ups with guys I care nothing about. None of it works. He walks right past me as if I'm just a body occupying space. And to me, he was everything. Even the current version of him—heartbroken. One night over Christmas break everything changed. For the good. For the bad. One night of my existence all of my dreams came true. But just like in the fairytale it came to an end. I was left with nothing but a gaping hole in my chest. It changed me. Then graduation came. My plans changed. You know what they say—to get over someone you get under someone else. That's what I intend to do. College is here. Destination—Miami. South Beach—here I come. A place where the parties never end and there is never a shortage of hot guys. But the thing about fairytales—they tend to end exactly where you started.
