I thought things couldn't get worse. I was wrong.

I found out what I really wanted and was forced to give him up. Just as I found out who I really am, I was presented to the elusive Horde King as a gift.

This was the mystical being I was hidden from for more than twenty years.

Although Ryder promised to save me, I couldn't let him get near this creature, so I willingly (sor

Every beauty needed a beast, and he was mine.

The 3rd installment in The Fae Chronicles, was hot, action packed and chocka-blocked full of my favourite fairy Ryder! After the mother of all cliffys at the end of Taunting Destiny I was in a state of near panic! The first couple of pages into Escaping Destiny and I was swearing like a sailor and just about to start balling like a baby!!! This was quite possibly the best intro I have ever read!

Cliffhanger:. Yes

Escaping Destiny was third book I’ve read by Amelia Hutchins and for the third time I fell in love with her storytelling. She like no other author of paranormal romance can make my heart beat so, so fast and my panties to magically melt off of me.

I adore how awesome her books are! Not only do I love the sexiness

”Every beauty needed a beast, and he was mine.”

I was anxiously awaiting this third installment in The Fae Chronicles because the last book left me frantic to find out what would happen to Syn with The Horde King. By 11 percent, all was well in my world and I was more than happy with the direction the author brought the story. Truthfully, from this point on the excitement kinda waned for me.

Syn is with the Horde King, pregnant and concubined. She spends a lot of time with my favorite Demon. She

4 Beauty & Beast Stars

Every beauty needed a beast and he was mine.


Against all odds, or just following their destinies Ryder and his Syn are still fighting enemies, unraveling mysteries and unburying secrets. Passionate and hotter than ever, they are going through hell and back to save a couple of worlds, satisfy cryptic Goddesses and undo past mistakes.

So many feelings, so much in love with this FUCKING FANTASTIC SERIES!


But now the waiting for the next begins and my heart is breaking...


“She’s my fucking anchor, and no one will take her from me again, not even to save this world.”

Escaping Destiny is the third book in The Fae Chronicles. This paranormal phenomenon continues to captivate me. I cannot seem to turn the pages fast enough! I am dying to know what will happen next!

At the end of the last book I was scared for what was to come in this book…We left off the last book with Synthia being sent to the Horde as the payment for her brother Liam.

Just keeps getting better..i love the twists and the turns.
Ryder is falling in love.. he just doesn't know it yet! I love how possessive he is with Syn.
Syn, unfortunately has lost her kick-ass mainly because she has 'something' to protect..but i live it that she gives it as good as she gets it.
I skimmed through a little bit here and there, felt draggy at times. However i need to know more.
Off to read the last bit.

This series is clearing addicting. I’ve read the first three books back to back and I’m getting ready to read the next book.

The thing that I enjoy most about this series is that the characters progress and change for the BETTER with each book. I really do love that. I also love that the main storyline is Ryder and Synthia because it is a love tory right?

Synthia is in the Horde kingdom and it’s so awesome reading about her in the place and above all, pregnant! Gah,

OMG…This is one of the most interesting stories I have ever read! These three books are amazing. Every single one of them! I am so glad I started this series…turns out they became one of my absolute favorite.

So…Syn is presented as a gift to the Horde King. Well...not exactly as a gift but close enough (there is a contract and everything). She has no choice but to go to him with the only hope that her ‘Prince Charming’

I admit, I have a bit of a love-hate relationship with this series. Aspects of the previous books have annoyed me, and I have a few issues with the writing, but the story is just so damn addictive! And things take a huge twist in this book, and it all starts to become just a little bit awesome!

I've been reading this series for a couple days. I have lived and breathed these characters. I couldn't do ANYTHING but read once I started.

Syn was taken by the Horde King to fulfill the contract. She's trying to do her part but all she wants is Ryder. He said to look for him but where is he?

I'm still really enjoying Syn and Ryder. Every time I get frustrated by Syn, especially when she gets whiny, I just try to remember how young she is and everything she's gone through. Ryder can be infuriating too especially with some of the things he says to Syn. But then we get his POV and I love hearing what all he feels for Syn.

I was so excited about this book coming out, I had read the two previous books in the series within a day and was gutted when I found I had to wait months for the next one. I wish there was a way to fast forward authors sometimes ^_^ I bought the book as soon as i knew it was live (thanks Ristan Cúchulainn for letting me know!) and it took me a couple of hours to read it.
Did I love this book as much as the last two? No, sadly I didn't but I did enjoy it, a lot.

The plot was as expected mindblowing and the characters grew on me even more. I feel like I am already having a book hangover. I can't take the world that Mrs. Hutchins created out of my mind; I even dreamt about it last night because I was so into the book.

I really liked the first book. The heroine was strong and confident, but sadly, her character deteriorates after that. He, on the other hand, continues to be sexy-as-hell, ubermacho, incentive and in need of a thorough ball-cutting.

Oh damn, how I love this series!!!

In the last book, Synthia has been given to the Horde King and then ends with a huge cliffy, leaving us wondering where the hell Ryder was and what's going to happen. To say this book was highly anticipated was an understatement. I couldn't even wait.

Alright, I have to say I was very intrigued by this series and went into the third book with high expectations, considering the high ratings it has gotten. Sadly, it didn't turn out quite the way I thought it would be. The story came nowhere close to my expectations!

There were just too many things happening in a short period of time that I felt like I was struggling to deal with 'data overload'. Furthermore, the sex scenes were too long and repetitive that I had to skim through some pages,
