Once, I’d chosen my mate instead of freedom.
For weeks, we retraced our steps back to Mistfell and the lingering shadow of the Veil at the boundary between realms. Traveling through the kingdom, I denied the evidence in front of me, unable to fathom that I wasn’t the lost princess of Faerie. Instead, it is Fallon who must fear the consequences of her heritage. Which leaves me with a single, unanswered question.
Then, I awoke, caged high above the throne of the Queen of Air & Darkness.
Mab is the Queen who keeps all of Alfheimr held squirming within her clawed grasp. She uses the children of Faerie to sustain the magic granted to her by the cursed gem atop her crown, which has carved her from the girl she once was into a dark vessel, obsessed with power. She thrives on cruelty, and wields our love as an instrument for pain.
Now, I’ll play the games of the Fae.
I’m a curiosity, my presence an enigma that was never foreseen. I may not be Mab’s daughter, yet she still keeps me close, as she forges me into a weapon against humans and Fae alike. Mab may not own me yet, but she controls the life of the man I love. There is nothing I wouldn’t do to see him freed.
Even if I have to become the villain to do it.
What Lurks Between the Fates is book three in a series and ends in a cliffhanger. It features content that may be offensive or triggering to some readers.

The book took a while to get going, once I hit the half way point there was so much action. I didn't find the book as spicy and steaming as the others. The ending is frustrating and left on a cliff hanger. I hope mab gets a satisfying hideous death and they can finally complete the bond. idk what I'm going to read now, nothing will compare to these books.
This installment was packed with information, with some seriously spicy scenes sprinkled in. We learned so much about the Fae world and their culture and hierarchy, and whole a lot of questions were answered. Some big ones, like what our FMC is, are only starting to be answered.
I love the bond the FMC and MMC have, and I love the relationships she has with her friends, both old and new. I can not wait to see the conclusion to this series in What Sleeps Within the Cove.
If you love :
Fae and Gods
M/f with Touch them and d!e attitudes
Powerful FMCs with supportive MMCs so are secure about the fact that they are not the most powerful ones in the relationship
This one is for you!
I received this arc for an honest review
While not as spicy as the previous books, this book still delivered the spice between Estrella & Caldris (just wait for the tree! 🥵)
I love the twists and turns and world building, of this series. I feel like there was a lot of foreshadowing happening in this book, and I truly can’t wait for what comes next.
Estrella and Caldris definitely still had their moments that had me melting and you can tell Estrella’s character did develop a bit. But there was also things that had me shaking my head. I will still read the fourth book though.
I did find the third book had a bit of a slow start, for all that the ending of the previous book had me expecting it to be tense and action packed. That’s not to say it didn’t have its moments, just that it felt a bit slower paced than the other books and I wanted something more to start happening.
Of course I continued to love Caldris, because I’m all about those morally grey/let’s be real, super dark character types. Especially in my males. I am what I am. The lengths he will go to for love are just everything to me, and his badassery besides makes for an irresistible character. He continues to prove himself in this book and show his depths, which just makes me want more of him. I was very happy that his POV chapters that were introduced in the second book not only continued, but were actually more frequent in this book. Reading the second book I had wanted there to be more of them, and that was granted in this third book much to my contentment.
Estrella is a character I feel has come a long way. In What Lies Beyond the Veil she starts out as such a simple, normal seeming girl who is a construct of her society as far as beliefs and prejudices. However, with her eyes being opened up the larger world, she has learned to form her own opinions and grow as a being. She also becomes such a fighter and so tough and my respect for her really grew, and I loved seeing her become this individual who could fight her own battles and didn’t need someone else to rescue her. And I love her newfound bond with both Imelda and Fallon.
I loved how dark this book truly was, because of the events that took place the tone of the novel amped that darkness up a lot in this third book. It was tough to read at times because of this, but I live for books that make me feel so much, and which amp the tension the reader feels throughout the entirety. And let me tell you there were a lot of moments I was anxious and beside myself reading What Lurks Between the Shadows. Which, let’s be real, did not even let up for the ending. I thought the last book had a brutal cliffhanger, well this one officially takes the cake. I don’t know how I’m supposed to wait to read more now.
All together this was a very enjoyable, very dark read and I highly recommend it, particularly to fans of this series!

What Lurks Between The Fates is Harper's third installment of her dark fantasy romance, the Of Flesh and Bone series. After leaving off the brutal cliffhanger of the last book we are thrown straight back into Caldris and Estrella's story as they fight for each other.
I was over the moon to get the ARC of this book, this series is one of my favourites by one of my favourite authors as well. The dark and twisted storyline in this had me gripped from page 1. The love between the two MCs is to die for but what I loved the most was how Estrella becomes a total badass, and also the way Harper writes her villians is just 😘👏
Obviously don't want to give too much away (you guys need to get this book as soon as it is out) but some chapters that stood out for me were 5, 10, 24, 31, 38!!, 42, 45, 46 and of course the last chapter!! I won't say why they are my favourites but you 👏 need 👏 to 👏 read 👏 this 👏 Book 👏😂 Be prepared for another cliffhanger though 🙃 I need the next book like now 😂
🖤 Paranormal romance
🖤 Fated mates
🖤 Enemies to lovers
🖤 Dark fantasy romance
🖤 Badass FMC
First of all, a huge thank you to Harper L Woods and her team for sending me an ARC of this book. I’ve been dying to get my hands on the next instalment since I finished What Hunts Inside the Shadows, and What Lurks Between the Fates did not disappoint.
We pick up where the second book left off, joining Caldris and Estrella as they’re taken into Mab’s court. As with the previous books, I loved the bond between our two main characters, and enjoyed seeing it strengthen even as Mab tested it every way she could. Caldris remains firmly on my list of favourite book boyfriends, in all his possessive, protective fae glory.
The character development for Estrella in this book was huge. She learns to navigate some of the court politics, playing the mind games and finding out who she is as a potential ruler. It was so good to see her finally embracing her magic- to start using it and learning it, rather than keeping it suppressed due to fear. I look forward to seeing her keep growing, and discovering what she is and what she’s capable of.
Mab is a villain you can well and truly hate. She makes a strong adversary for Caldris and Estrella. She’s unfailingly clever, cunning, and cruel, and it really ups the stakes in this instalment to see her level of power and control. I’m very much hoping we get to see Caldris and Estrella take their revenge on her eventually.
True to form, this book ends on a killer of a cliffhanger. There’s so much drama in the build-up too, and I’m desperate to find out what happens next!

I want to know the story, but I find myself skimming entire pages because of the overly-descriptive torture scenes.
I know this is a new thing in recent story telling (Outlander, Game of Thrones etc), but I don't overly find it necessary to further the plot in most stories. It always feels like it's there for the sake of it, but I suppose some people enjoy it. As someone who has PTSD, I do not. Some is fine, I can skim over it and enjoy the rest, but the graphic violence here is a little excessive and not overly intone with the last 2 books.
Please consider yourself warned about the sudden increase of torture and violence in this book, it might be concerning for some.
Personally I'll try pushing though, but may just end up skipping to the end.
I do appreciate that there are trigger warnings etc (I don't find things overly triggering, I'm just way too squeamish and I don't enjoy it).
Well written, as always! I'm just hoping the torture scenes subside significantly in the next few chapters as so far it's been constant.
