I thought things were bad and weird before—hold on—it’s getting worse.

Adam and I are both going through identity crises of epic proportions as we Transition from who we were, and discover who we were meant to be. More Fae are dying, and I feel as if time is running out for us to find all of those responsible and put an end to the killings.

The people I thought I could trust have betrayed me and the one person I should absolutely not trust; is taking me deeper and deeper into his world.

Ryder’s secrets are dangerous and devastating.

With each touch and word, he pulls my heart closer to himself and at the same time he is trying to keep me at arm’s length. The dance he and I have begun, is getting more complicated as our worlds are being shaken from all sides, and the visions of the future are frightening, and nothing like I had ever pictured for myself or those I care for.

This time, destiny is taunting me.

I had always thought that I controlled my destiny. Now, my rights are being taken from me by powerful people and leaving me with alternatives that range between bad and awful.

This time, the choices I have to make can decide the fate of both worlds.

Everything is unraveling, and nothing will ever be the same again.

Taunting Destiny by Amelia Hutchins
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This was bloody amazing and I was transfixed from the minute I picked this one up. Taunting Destiny was packed full of action intrigue and pure emotion and every word hooked its talons into me digging deep. I connected with this story and it’s characters on every single level possible leaving me totally invested in the unfolding drama. So here Syn is trying to come to terms with a whole new reality which is also pulling her in multiple directions. Her life is totally out of her own control and all she can do is let the tide take her. Even looking in Ryder’s direction for solutions won’t work as he’s just as much a prisoner of the fates as she is. Syn’s importance to him surprising even himself, Ryder badly wants to fully claim her but Syn is that anomaly he just hadn’t counted on. Unfortunately, there’s a whole world’s survival at stake keeping them apart and standing between them. Finally, this is all wrapped up in a killer finale that leaves you panting for more.

This is such a fabulous series with such phenomenal world-building and no matter how many times I read this it never gets old.
