It all comes down to this …
Chloe Lilywhite has struggled for years to find her footing in a series of dangerous and demanding worlds. Creator, first tier Council member, and one of the most powerful Magicals in existence, she was little more than one of Fate’s pawns. But now, Chloe is back home and ready to call the shots. She knows what she wants and who she wants to be.
Except the Elders never got the memo.
Annar and Magical-kind are under attack. The lives of Chloe’s loved ones, and life as they know it, are at stake. Chloe’s the key to taking the Elders down, but they won’t go quietly into the night.
This time, neither will Chloe.
*This is a New Adult title, suitable for readers 18+
This is the highly anticipated, bittersweet, final installment of the FATE Series and let me just say, I loved it!! My expectations were high and Heather Lyons delivered in every possible area. And I’m not sure how to even write this review because it’s impossible not to include spoilers but fear not, I will simply talk about how this book made me feel!
I came to really love Chloe because she evolved into a thoughtful woman. Having had a love/hate relationship with her in A Matter of Fate, we’ve clearly made progress but she owns who she is, warts and all but most importantly she’s at peace with her decision with regards to Kellan and Jonah.
What I will say is that I missed Kellan’s presence in the first half of the book. Don’t get me wrong, he’s mentioned and thought about but his voice was missing and I was thrilled when he made his grand entrance.
One of the things that worked well was the love triangle and the reason for that is…there were no villains! Everyone in the love triangle was a victim and that’s why I felt a bit melancholy when I was done reading. Do I think it’s possible to fall in love with two people at the same time? Not necessarily BUT I bought it hook, line and sinker during this series and that’s what counts.
It took a few days before I could actually read another book because I could not stop thinking about all the characters and their individual journeys. There’s so much more I could say but I don’t trust myself to NOT give something away.
What you can expect from AMoF is excellent pacing, fabulous writing, wistfulness, it’s heavy on the internal dialogue from Chloe and an ending that will leave you happy’ish but satisfied.
