Less than six months ago my life was twisted and flipped on its side. Things have changed so much I barely recognize myself anymore.

I am no longer an Enforcer.

I am no longer a Witch.

I no longer hate the Fae. (For the most part)

And the sex-on-a-stick-gorgeous-Fae? He isn't really the Dark Prince.

No, he is the father of my children and with the babies on the way, the la

Seducing Destiny will be releasing on January 20th! I will be putting it up on all platforms at the same time. Unfortunately, if I placed it on pre-order, it would take longer to reach you. So I will be passing on it this time.

Kobo and Itunes: They changed their system, and their cover requirements. I am currently having my cover artist redo and work them so I can get the approved for the platforms.

I waited so long for this book....maybe that was the problem. Maybe I built it up in my head? Nah, Syn's voice and character completely changed. Yes, a lot happened to her. I'll give you that, but in my opinion, it happened far TOO quickly. I won't go into details but I got whiplash from all the shit that went down. The plot and the action could have been really good with a bit more development but it felt like there was a lot of holes that didn't get cleared up. And it might seem petty but how ...more

”I knew I loved him, but love wasn’t strong enough to seduce destiny into giving us what we wanted. Danu kept telling me that destiny had to be won, that I wasn’t just born to it, and that I had to fight to get it.”

Well fighting is exactly what Syn and Ryder do in this fourth kick ass installment. They are faced with life threatening obstacles to their world and their newborn babies lives are in danger. Damn it if these two didn’t come out stronger than ever. S

Maybe I am a type A personality that needs to complete things I start. Or, I'm a masochist. Yeah, it's probably the second one. Because this book was pure torture to get through.

Speaking of masochism...Ryder has fully turned into Christian Grey at this point. It's Fifty Shades of Fae all over the place. The sex scenes are torturous. Just ridiculous and tedious. The same shit/different day, over and over again.

I can't believe it's all over! I'm so glad I gave this series a try because I ended up loving it! While this installment was a bit all over the place, I'm still satisfied with how it all ended. What am I going to do now??? I guess I'll have to go read Amelia's other book to get my fix :)

At the end of the last book, Syn is pregnant with twins and the Mages are still trying to kill the Fae. Well, that is still the status quo...but things do progress.

The Mages are in full force. It seemed instead of the Fae being offensive, they are very much on the defense. The Mages have struck quite a few places and quite frankly have gone for the jugular. The only saving grace is Syn.

And would that be Syn the Human, Syn the half Fae, Syn the Whole Fae....or whatever else Syn could be?
Bex (Beckie Bookworm)

So book 4 had some seriously emotional moments that brought forth such strong feelings from me.
The looming war is still very much affecting the whole of Faery and Syn and her babies are still a visible and convenient target for others evil intentions.
The actions visited upon her finally resulting in an epiphany from Ryder regarding the true depths of his affections towards Syn.
There was a lot going on here and certain budding story threads are also interwoven into the narrative.

To the people who "edited" this book: if you got any money from it, you should give it back. The editing was disgraceful. The punctuation was mostly ok, but the way the sentences were constructed... it was a disaster! And don't get me started on spelling and verb tenses and all the other grammatical crap because I would never finish this review.

About the characters: Ryder was too passive, not at all like himself. He was just around to boost Syn's confidence and fuck her, all the rest, well Syn c

Sadly this was a DNF for me.

It pains me to say that I will not be continuing with this series, if this book is any indication of things to come.

This book was one of my most anticipated releases, yet sadly it failed to deliver, whether with character development, action or the connection between the characters. It started really well and then at the 26%, I found myself losing interest. The writing felt choppy and immature, I kept thinking this cannot be written by the same author of the previous
5 stars!

So what...




Okay, so this book was on a whole new level than the previous three. I said the third book was a game changer, this one irrevocably altered the universe. I know I'm being dramatic but...THIS BOOK.

I seriously teared up at certain parts because we FINALLY know how Ryder truly feels about Syn and it was seriously a sight to behold. I loved him with her and even with his children. In this book, he was such a different man...well...erm...fae. I loved

Better than the previous book. More things going on, plots, traitors, killing, magic. It’s a pretty ridiculous series. Same complaint all the way through- too much sex. The sex scenes are 82 hours long and every chapter (or so it reads). Could really do with 90% less.

“You made me feel the need to be a better person. You, Synthia, you made me want to be a better man.”

Seducing Destiny is the fourth book in The Fae Chronicles. Synthia and Ryder are back and with the fate of their kind (and others) weighing on the balance, they will do whatever it takes to save the world and each other.

I didn’t love this and I don’t know what is wrong with me. 😱

This world that Amelia Hutchins has created is beyond amazing, but this book simply didn’t do it for me.
And I HATE this feeling. 😭 #iamafanIpromise

Syn has always been this amazing, strong and fierce woman/Fae.
I didn’t feel that in this book. And I don’t know if it’s just me, but her “voice” seems to have changed. She was so aggressive and crass. She annoyed me. Flat out annoyed me. #whereismygirl?

this is a nice final wrap up of The Fae Chronicles series BUT I want more...

As a final book it does leave an open ending, and the new alluring notion that there could and should be a 5th book.

OMGGGGG! No one has any idea how I'm absolutely glad to finally have read this book. I waited five long months for this and I'm not going to lie I was a bit disappointed.

The Good Things about this book:

1. She had the babies, fyi > I knew she would have triplets. Dibs!
2. Ryder finally admitting his love for her and even proposed. And he Cried, CRIED!
3. The land is now safe for her babies.
4. The writing improved.(BIG BIG improvement there.)

I continue to have a love/hate relationship with this series. I struggle with the writing – I find it a bit choppy and repetitive at times - but the story is just so damn addictive! That, and I have come to truly care about these characters. And I found myself eagerly anticipating the release of this book and diving in as soon as I got my grabby little hands on it.

I have waited patiently (like I have a choice on the matter, lol…) for Ryder! Yes, I love Syn too, but really… Ryder has the most draw in this series. Can you imagine my excitement when the book came out? Like, drop everything and read this right away kind of reaction! ;)

But then, imagine my surprise when it was all about my excitement for Ryder and I tried my darn-nest to enjoy the story but it just wasn’t so. It was at this point that I feel like crying! What the hell happened? There was so mu

This book was highly anticipated. But unfortunately it felt more like a stepping stone than a major marker for the series. A lot of conflict was breezed right by (Ms. Hutchins, you should have milked it more!) while other conflicts are STILL unresolved. Ryder seemed more mild and not quite what we're use to. That's ok, lots of stuff happened and I know characters need to change and develop. It just felt a little off. Overall, I still enjoyed Syn and the entire story. I can't wait for

I read the first three books back to back but I stopped with Seducing Destiny several times. This is the type of book you have to read in order, even though the next book is about a different couple. I liked it, but I think I might have gotten my fill of Ryder and Syn. I found myself sucked in until the 40% mark because that’s where the angst and tension came from in regards towards the relationship between the two main characters.

The rest of the book was okay, I probably would have enj

This was a great ending to a great series!!! loved everything about it. I think you can’t judge this book separately since it is the ending of sooooo much.
Loved the way both characters developed, it was such a good timing for everything to fall into place.
One thing that I love about this writer is that every new character that I’ve meat, I totally hoped she will get her own book!!! this is good writing for me since from such a brief encounter you get curious and just want more!!!!

“This is your love; it has to be. I can’t breathe. I can’t fucking breathe without you, Synthia Raine. You weren’t supposed to leave me, Pet; that wasn’t the deal. I told you I would find you, damn you. How could you run from me in death where I cannot follow you? This isn’t right, but I get it now, you taught me. I know what love is, and it hurts. It’s tearing me apart, and I find I don’t enjoy it at all. Had you told me of this kind of pain, I’d have denied wanting it. I’d have lied if I could have. But if not feeling this pain meant never knowing you, I’d feel it again and again—just for you. I’d do it all again for one more moment with you.” 68 likes
