MY GOODREADS REVIEW LINK
RATING: 4.5 Stars!
I thought things were bad and weird before—hold on—it’s getting worse.
Adam and I are both going through identity crises of epic proportions as we Transition from who we were, and discover who we were meant to be. More Fae are dying, and I feel as if time is running out for us to find all of those responsible and put an end to the killings.
The people I thought I could trust have betrayed me and the one person I should absolutely not trust; is taking me deeper and deeper into his world.
Ryder’s secrets are dangerous and devastating.
With each touch and word, he pulls my heart closer to himself and at the same time he is trying to keep me at arm’s length. The dance he and I have begun, is getting more complicated as our worlds are being shaken from all sides, and the visions of the future are frightening, and nothing like I had ever pictured for myself or those I care for.
This time, destiny is taunting me.
I had always thought that I controlled my destiny. Now, my rights are being taken from me by powerful people and leaving me with alternatives that range between bad and awful.
This time, the choices I have to make can decide the fate of both worlds.
Everything is unraveling, and nothing will ever be the same again.
4.5 Taunting Stars!
Taunting Destiny is the second book in The Fae Chronicles series and picks up exactly where the first book ended, leading to a very exciting opening that pulled me right in, frantically flipping the pages to see what happens next!
In this book, Synthia is struggling after everything that happened in the first book. Her future is uncertain. A different path than the one she worked her whole life for, is laid out in front of her and she’s confused and afraid this new direction is going to take her right to the front door of her enemy. She has to align herself with those she’s spent her whole life hating, trying to fit into her new life and everything it entails, while also trying to keep the core of who she is.
While this change is taking place, she also has the burden of hunting down whoever is still hurting the Fae and trying her best to stay one step ahead of the ones targeting her.
Her past is confronted head on, her lineage is discovered, as well as Adam’s and she’s trying not to let the passion and growing emotions she has for Ryder, consume her.
And just when she think’s she has it somewhat figured out and has found her place in her new world, the ground shifts once again and threatens to take it all away, only this time, it seems she might be on her own with no backup, no Guild and no Dark Prince. She’s got A LOT going on! But she’s still the tough fighter and defender we fell in love with in the first book, packing a ton of snark, deep loyalty and bravery.
Ryder is still the sexy, mystery, assertive Fae we loved in book one, but I also enjoyed the slight tendering of his character the author gave us. Don’t get me wrong, that Fae is still very much the alpha and dominant protector, but he’s coming to grips with his feelings for Syn and that struggle playing out was so much fun to read!
I LOVED the world building the author gave us in this book. If you read my book one review, you might have noticed I was a little underwhelmed with the world building, but in this book, the author steps up and delivers a creative, exciting, majestic world that is undeniably intriguing and mysterious!
Ohh, and the lusty sex scenes with a dirty talking alpha and a heroine who holds her own was HOT! The author amped up the steamy-sexy in this installment and holy fire, the chemistry between Ryder and Syn was explosive! The sexual tension they had in book one is now a burning inferno as they give into their need and desire for one another! Sinfully sexy!!
I have to talk about the emotional side of this read. There were moments when I truly felt Syn’s pain, her heartbreak and her fear. I even teared up at a couple of places and that’s not like me at all. The author did a phenomenal job of pulling me in and making me believe I was part of the story, instead of just a spectator. And I LOVED it!
This book had an amazing story, filled with adventure, mystery, suspense, fiery passion, great dialogue and a cast of formidable characters that fascinate and beguiled this reader.
That ending? Wow! A major cliffy, but thankfully, the third book is already on my reader waiting for me. YAY!!
