Blog Tour/ReviewGuest Post/Giveaway: Fighting Destiny (The Fae Chronicles #1) By Amelia Hutchins


Have you ever heard of the old Celtic legends of the Fae - beautiful, magical, and deadly creatures that have a love of messing with humans just for kicks and giggles?

Welcome to my world.

What started out as a strange assignment, lead to one of the most gruesome murder mysteries of our times. My friends and I are set and determined to find out who is killing off Fae and Witches alike.

Couple of problems in the way – I hate the Fae and the Prince of the Dark Fae is bound and determined that I work for him. He’s a rude, overbearing egotistical ass with a compulsive need to possess, dominate and control me. Oh – did I mention that he is absolutely sex-on-a-stick gorgeous and he makes me feel things that I never ever wanted to feel for a Fae...every time he touches me or looks at me with those dangerous golden eyes he seems to pull me further in under his spell, despite my better judgment.

My friends and I can’t trust anyone and nothing is as it seems on the surface – not even me


The music started, even as the butterflies played with my insides, his eyes locked with mine as the song started up slowly. David Cook's The Time Of My Life came on, the music filling the room around us.  I stumbled when he moved, and started to apologize until I caught the smile on his lips.  "I can't dance, Ryder.  You never said anything about dancing when I signed the contract."
"Take off your shoes," he countered, already releasing me and bending over to take his own footwear off.  I watched him as others did the same and eventually I ignored the brilliant blush that crept up to my cheeks and did the same, stepping out of the borrowed strappy heels.  
Ryder smiled, and I stared at him, he was shockingly beautiful and ethereal.  Like a lion, you wanted to touch him, but knew by doing so he'd consume you, body and soul.  I swallowed and held my hand up for him to take it.
"Put your feet on mine, Synthia," he said quietly, aware that everyone was watching us.  
I exhaled and obeyed him, knowing his men were watching us, as well as my coven.  When the song restarted, he carried us both, his hand once again on the small of my back.  Rubbing it softly as his fingers settled against it.  My heart raced from his touch, the deep desire in his eyes made it flip-flop as he swept me around the room until everyone else faded away, leaving us alone inside the room.  
I smiled as I looked down to see our feet together. Nervous at being so close to him and doing something I had only ever done with my father. It had been the last thing we’d ever done together.  But with Ryder, it was intimate, sending heat flooding through me.  I looked back up, with the smile still in place, to catch him staring openly in wonder at me.  "What?" I asked growing self-conscious.  

"You’re very beautiful, Synthia," he whispered tenderly.  


My Review
4.5 Hot, Ryder-Loving, Fast-Paced, Fantastic Stars!!

Have you ever heard of the old Celtic legends of the Fae - beautiful, magical, and deadly creatures that have a love of messing with humans just for kicks and giggles?

Synthia (Syn) is a witch and she hates the Fae due to witnessing her parent be being killed by them..does that make them all evil?
Can she judge them based on what a couple of them did to her parents?

"It was why they were considered the most deadly of the Otherworld.They could make you like it as they fucked you to death.."

The book starts out where Syn meets the Prince of the Dark Fae who wants Syn to work for him, he wants her to pose as a decoy for the dark prince of the fae Ryder's fiancée because he thinks her life is under threat..

After signing a contract and handing herself over to the Dark Fae things begin to get more complicated..Witches and Faes are being slaughtered and their body parts have been removed..

What are they doing with the body parts they are collecting?

Can Syn and Ryder find the killer and stop the murders?

"..I was reckless and a loose cannon.Okay that was a little harsh.I wasn't a loose cannon-I just didn't take shit from anyone"

Okay so when I got this book I had forgotten what it was about when I check it out on goodreads I was like..whatt? What the hell fairies and shit? Will I even enjoy this?

The answer was hell yeah !

At the starting I was thinking hmmm what am I getting myself into?
And then you meet Ryder..

"His eyes smiled mischievously as if he was commanding me to do so.Heat flowed through me, his hands offered more support as my legs trembled once more with the need to come...His soul was fucking me from the inside and it was intensely seductive and powerful"

Ryder..Ryder ahh what can I say..he bloody has me hooked, hot alpha male and so damn mysterious.
There is something off about him he is hiding things but what are they? Oh how I would love to jump into his head and find out!
Is he evil or is he the good guy?

Give me the next book right now and I will tell you!
Urgh how I hate waiting..

I loved Syn and Ryder's love/hate relationship it was fun and hot!

I really liked Syn's character yes yes she is a badass! She is a perfect fit for Ryder, she challenges him at each turn..
Cant wait to find out what will happen between them in book 2!

Why did no-one tell me it ends on a cliffhanger?!!?
ahhhhhhhhhhhh the ending was like fuckkkkkk wtf is going on!! :O :O

"Never challenge me.I promise that you will lose.Every.Fucking.Time"

Guest Post: What inspired you to write this book?
I actually had the idea of this book in my head for almost seven years. I had started a few books for this one, and ended up trashing them because it wasn't perfect. After Ryder finally growled enough inside my head, I gave up and wrote his story. Nothing actually inspired it, so much as Ryder growling that it was time for me to get serious and give and Syn their story.
