So far, I would have thought that this far into the series Syn would have finally grown up a bit. I was wrong. She is still the same whiny, bad@ss pretender that she usually is. But now she is pregnant and even more whiny. I don't know how that is even possible.
Syn still complains about Ryder, aka the Horde King, but with one touch she's like butter melting on hot toast. Gets taken advantage of repeatedly but in the heat of the moment (and there's a lot of heat) she's perfectly accepting of it and even begs for it. Then after their steamy moments (typical. The same old lines over and over that I was skimming pages) Ryder always seems to lay down the law about something, to which Syn disagrees with and throws a hissy fit. Always crying. Always yelling. Lots of exclamation marks. At some point in the novel she states that she isn't the type to have a hissy fit. I literally stopped, and was like, what?! Are you kidding me? Syn. You are the epitome of hissy fits. Here's some reality for you to digest, dear girl: Ryder isn't going to change. Your relationship type is unhealthy and it's getting boring to read. Stop being so surprised by a guy with MANY secrets. There will always be many more. Make a decision. Stick with it.
So Ryder apparently signed a contract pre-Syn stating he'll marry Clare's sister. And what does Syn do? Let's him boss her around again while hissy fitting her way through it. But this time the idiot says, I'll make him love me. That's my plan. This guy with real mental problems, I'll make him love me. Yeah, that ought show everyone.
The series started out good. They books were addicting, hot and a pretty decent length. The consistent recipe of, I hate him! How dare he! Oh, sex? Okay sure. I love him now. But gee, he's done it again and is treating me like he's a caveman! I hate him again! Is getting pretty damn boring pretty damn fast.
With that said, I don't think I'll be purchasing the 4th in the series. There's barely been any character progression and it shows.
This is gonna be a real messy review.
I can't stop reading, once I start it's impossible for me to quit. The Fae Chronicles is a MUST READ. How does the author do this to me.
In this installment I actually flipping cried, the angst, the drama, the action, the steam! It was all there from start to finish without pause.
The story is just incredible, these beings, and o.m.g. I actually had something right and the story made me doubt myself and when it turned out to be true I sat up in my bed and screamed "I flipping knew it". Fiancé wasn't too happy about that *snicker*
I am diving into the 4th book as soon a I get this review done. Where has this author been all my life?! 3 years, took me 3 flipping years to read the first book. One of the worst mistakes I made in my life. I'm totally serious.
Ryder, Synthia, Tristan, Adam aaaahhhhh all these characters they all have a piece of me, and now it is about to get really real!
5 stars isn't enough. I need all the stars for this series and I'm not even done! Gaaaaahhhh I'm hooked on it.

5.blackmailed her with threats to her friends and family; and,
6.given her away to become someone else's sex slave
The series is a long list of MALE fantasy cliches. It is a parody of BDSM since there is no concept of consent introduced. Playing "spot the abuse" bingo makes this laughable, in a somewhat compelling but not in a good way
Straight away we are thrown into chaos with Syn being given to the Horde. She is scared but hesitant to see what awaits her after the Horde King has been missing for so long.
Synthias situation has changed so much and I felt so bad for her, growing up a human and having to adjust to all these changes happening so fast, with Ryders newly elevated status, she is stuck fast in a place she doesn’t want to be.
This book was slower than the others and more confusing, I found it a bit harder to follow, I think I felt that way because some of the book was a journey rather than actual events, when we got to where the group needed to be, things started to pick up again.
The ending changed my mind on this book and I totally loved it though I held my breath when Ristan’s life was in danger! Can’t wait to check out the next in the series and see where destiny takes Synthia!
While we're on the subject of characters, if you've read my reviews before, you'll know that I always enjoy a story more when the main female character is intelligent, resilient, resourceful, self-reliant and has plenty of gumption. Synthia (Syn) ticks all my boxes and also comes with a great sense of humour and a sarkiness that I love.
I love that this book made me feel so many emotions; yes, the tears did fall at times - but I won't tell you how often or when ;-) - the tension had me holding my breath on the edge of my seat, the fighting got my adrenaline pumping and the sex scenes, wow, were so hot and erotic that the tingles were off the chart but what I loved was that there are beautifully tender moments that just warmed my old romantic heart.
I would just like to say that some of the behaviour of the species in this book may cause offense or trigger emotions some readers would prefer to avoid. It's always a grey area, romances written about succubi or inccubi type Fae, because sex without consent is rape. The Fae Kingdom is an antiquated world of arranged marriages, concubines and sex as food. Having said that if you persist, Ms Hutchins gives us insightful glimpses into Ryder's inner dialogue which illuminates the obvious love that he has for Syn.
Escaping Destiny is a great read (with no perilous life-or-death cliffhanger) which is why I have rated it 5 stars. I already own the rest of the books in this series and I am keen to see how the remaining story threads are resolved and what will happens next for our heroic Syn.
In this book poor Synthia doesn’t know if she’s coming or going. From one Royal House to another in a matter of days. From forced marriage to her best friend, who she’s definitely not in love with, to a concubine to a monster is not a great jump to make as quickly as she has to.
It’s really hard to discuss this book without giving away massive spoilers because a lot happens in this book and some of it is pretty surprising. I will say that there is pretty of hot and steamy scenes in this book, as there were in the last two books. You have to remember that fae feed on emotions, which are the most easily generated during sex.
We also get to know Ristan a lot better in this book, and learn more about his visions. For a demon, he’s a pretty good guy and is rapidly becoming one of my favourite characters.
The plot rockets on and it’s filled with emotional upheaval and I need to read the next book now!
