Escaping Destiny was pretty darn awesome! The beginning felt a little slower than the first two, but overall, this book wow’ed me and consumed me. I couldn’t put it down!
When we left off in book 2, Synthia had returned to her people amongst the Blood Fae, but not for long, as she’s given to the Horde King, in accordance with a contract her father and mother were forced to sign years ago, a contract which they desperately, but ultimately failed, to try and hide her from. So now, the Horde King has taken off with Synthia as his “gift” and Syn has no choice but to submit after seeing just how powerful he is and how futile it would be to fight him.
There are plenty of surprises in this book, along with an excellent and fascinating story. We also get a wonderful and exciting look at Faery as the world building continues. Syn and the Horde King are super hot together! WOWZA! He is INTENSE as he refuses to let Syn go and Syn refuses to be just another broken toy hanging out in the pavilion, with the rest of the concubines. They light up the pages with their passion, their stubbornness and their defiance to give into the other's demands.
A little slower... but...
Syn really shows us a different side in this book. I loved her continued fire, her fearlessness and her unwillingness to settle. But I also missed the Syn from books one and two. She’s confused, she’s hurt and she’s uncertain and the author does a great job of showing that. However, for the first 45% of this book, it felt slower than the other books. Don’t get me wrong, she was only down for a short while, and this book was still absolutely wonderful, but Syn was in a position where she can’t be who she used to be. She can’t be the Enforcer, and I missed her being a strong, capable badass and leader. I understood her situation and the limits she had, and I wasn’t certain I was going to love the direction the story took. I missed the explosions, the mystery, the adventure, the fear and the uncertainty of what their enemies were up to and I missed Syn showing off her fighting skills and her powers as she fought those enemies, going head first into battle without hesitancy. It wasn’t until over halfway through the book and more towards the end that the action picked back up, things became more clear and I understood why the author chose to go that route. And them I was totally on board!
Syn really battles to find her place in her new world and I loved watching her bold and brave personality struggle past the insecurities her surroundings caused. Ryder is sexy personified and dominate to the core. He walks into a scene and commands it. I can’t get enough of him!
Oh, and let’s not forget to talk about the EXPLOSIVE chemistry going on in this book. With seductive and hedonistic bedroom scenes, this book was an erotic frenzy that steamed up my ereader. It was HOT!
The sub characters have become some of my favorite. I just love Ristan so much. I missed Adam, Alden, Adrain and Vlad as they took a backseat in this book, but I’ve read they make a pretty significant return in the next, so I’m excited to see more of them.
So much was explained in this installment and the book really started pulling the whole series together, with fascinating world building, amazing character development you can totally connect with, irresistible sub characters you couldn’t help but love, and a story that spellbinds and captivates.
And as before, we leave off with a huge cliffy, so I’m on to the next book asap!
Escaping Destiny starts out with a HUGE plot twist that will have you reeling. Syn’s life is in chaos and her pregnancy hormones have her in knots. Her relationship with Ryder is far from settled and they clashed throughout most of the book. Even pregnant, battling insurmountable odds at the same time crying at the drop of a hat, she never backed down from anyone, including Ryder himself. I love that she always holds her own. She may fall apart, but she gets right back up again kicking and screaming.
Ryder’s in a tough spot. He had to play some major cards he’d been holding close to his chest in order to secure Syn. His secret out, he now needs to solidify his position in order to prevent all out war. Syn was the last thing he had time for, but for him and his beast, protecting her and the child was all that mattered. Unfortunately, Syn’s needs clashed against some obligations already in place and if he can’t get free from them, Syn will find a way to leave.
When Ryder and Syn block everything out but each other and let the fireworks take over, they are combustible. Ryder was alpha and dominant and when his beast comes out to play, hot and sexy goodness happens that makes me want to wake my husband up no matter how late it is!
When reality intruded, it was the clash of the titans and not in a good way, with trust problems on both sides, especially with Ryder not being forthcoming with any information. Meanwhile Syn is on hormonal emotional tangents and several times the relationship felt doomed, no matter how strong the connection. It was heartbreaking to read.
The action involved was awesome and I loved the “trial” they went on. We really get to know Ristan in this book and that demon just melts my heart. The angst and heartbreak was overwhelming at times, but then Ryder would get in one of his panty melting, dirty talking, bend over and take it because you are mine moods and all was forgiven (at least on my part). This was one book hangover inducing, angsty but unbelievably hot ride and I can’t wait to start Seducing Destiny next.
