Emmersyn Vallis is new to me, I never know what to expect with new to me authors as I avoid reading reviews on the book I'm going to read.
I am glad I didn't read the reviews on this one as it may have prevented me from reading it.
Yes it starts out slow, it did take me awhile to get into and the heroine is not my favorite as she's bit childish but the book redeems itself.
This story centers around the Chandler sisters and the McAllistar triplets, but is Simon and Sydney's story.
Sydney walked away from the life she grew up in, changed everything about her life. Walked away from the world of socialites and tea to become a makeup artist in Hollywood.
She has new goals and a new life but has to come home for her parents vow renewal. Home to her sisters and the McAllistar boys.
The boy she loved is now a man, can she handle being around the person she left behind? The only man she's ever let get close to her.
Okay so I was hard on the book in the beginning, it was a slow start and I wasn't a huge fan of Sydney, at the end I still think she was a bit childish but this book was good enough to make me want to read next in the series, and considering this one left us hanging it's a necessity!!
Book #2 Hanging Pawns-
Hanging Pawns in book 2 in the Fate Series but reads more like a prequel to the series.
Following Adjournment I was looking for some closure with book 2 but it wasn't to be.
This is a quick read that tells Mea and Josh's story.
We met them in Adjournment but didn't know too much about them.
I enjoyed their story, Mea's struggles, Josh's quiet persistence.
Other than the fact that I expected book 2 to follow book one this one was a good read. I did fall for Josh and Mea but was really hoping for Simon and Sydney in this one.
Book #3 Sacrifice-
What in the ever loving hell is the author thinking??? Yet another cliffhanger only this one is worse. I could not believe the end of this book. My kindle was thrown at the nearest piece of furniture that would not destroy it while I cursed the authors evil brain for doing this to me yet again. I've got to get to book four asap and pray this author has come to her senses and gives us what we want!! So this one starts out with Simon and Sydney basically in a relationship, something that kind of came as a shock. It seems I'm missing some pieces between books two and three, hopefully book four will answer all my questions and NOT end in a cliffhanger!! This series has been up and down for me but I've been unable to stop, I absolutely have to know how it ends.
Book #4 End Game-
The end is here, secrets are out in the open, reality is a bit different than anyone imagined but in the end everyone gets exactly what the deserve!
I waited so long to get to the end, I had read the first three books almost back to back and loved it but completely forgot about book 4 when it came out, I'm not sure how I missed it, I had to go back and refresh my memory with the end of book three going into #4 but it all came back to me in those few pages at the end of Sacrifice and I was sucked right back into Simon and Sydney's rocky relationship.
I love this series, I really adore each and every book. I can't believe I lost track of the series and it took so long for me to realize it but I can honestly say it was well worth the wait. This book is packed with suspense but it quickly begins to unravel. It's well paced and keeps you guessing and borderline begging to find out exactly who's at fault for what. Loved each and every page.
Except for Fate #2, Hanging Pawns, which was Mea and Josh’s story, Simon and Sydney were the main characters in the series. I’ll admit that I was initially thrown by them together, but their relationship transitioned so much throughout the story. Their back and forth banter was really funny, and it led into this great slow burning passion between them. Simon and Sydney’s story was very touching, and once I understood everything they had been through together, I found myself rooting for them to have a happily ever after!
My favorite of Vallis’s writing is how well she developed this intriguing cast of characters and how intricately woven they were in each other’s lives. Each had so much so much depth but were so fun and down to earth with completely quirky behaviors. I completely adored them all once I got to know them better, and I enjoyed watching their relationships unfold and seeing how they connected together as friends, lovers, and family. I especially loved the crazy family feel between them all – this was definitely a family I can relate to!
I am very impressed with Vallis’s creativity in this series. It was full of mystery, passion, and my goodness, it has so many layers to it. There was a great balance of being a complex story, yet it was still fun. The foreshadowing was terrific, and the underlying mystery with chess and the pieces were very well played throughout. The books and series are quite long, and I really enjoyed the details and plot development, which built my intrigue, and made the story complete. Early on, I did have some issues with wordiness and the pace (particularly in Fate #1, Adjournment), but the flow of the writing grew in leaps and bounds throughout the series!
I had such a hard time taking breaks in between the books, and with that great conclusion, I definitely recommend this series! Emersyn Vallis certainly can write, and I think this was a great debut for her writing career. I am curious to see what her creative talent will bring next!
…As a side note, I also have to admit that I am a huge fan of the Reece’s cups too, which only makes this series more of a win-win for me. You’ll see what I mean when you read this!
The overall plot and storyline is interesting and Emersyn kept me wanting to know more then entire time I was reading this series. I do, however, think the execution of it all could have been a little smoother. This is just my personal opinion and it definitely did not take away from the overall affect this series had on me. At times it was easy for me to get lost in a lot of the detail and ramblings of the characters and kind of forget the bigger picture, but I believe this was something the author did intentionally because believe me when I say..these characters are all over the place in the most hilarious way. So, even though it did, at times, become a little much for me Emersyn was able to keep me committed to they story with my connection to all of the characters and the suspense behind the plot.
This series will bring out all of your emtions and you will fall in love with every single one of these characters. There are really no side characters or main characters in this series...they all play important roles and without any one of them these books wouldn't have been what they are. Emersyn Vallis has a new fan!
