Many characters are introduced throughout Fated, mostly other anthropomorphic personifications of various human traits, but very few make repeat appearances and unfortunately even the main characters are one dimensional. Browne does very little world-building either, and if you look too closely at what there is it often seems either contradictory or simply not explained deeply enough to understand how it’s all meant to work.
What seems to make or break this book is the humour. It’s meant to be black humour, and while I did laugh at a few of the jokes, I found the tone and pacing of the book too inconsistent to truly enjoy it. Looking online however, many people laughed all the way through this book and it was often awarded 5 stars by those that did.
