I thought things couldn’t get worse. I was wrong. I found out what I really wanted and was forced to give him up. Just as I found out who I really am, I was presented to the elusive Horde King as a gift. This was the mystical being I was hidden from for more than twenty years. Although Ryder promised to save me, I couldn’t let him get near this creature, so I willingly (sort of) signed myself over to be his new plaything. Now in the Horde Realm, nothing is going remotely like I thought it would. My powers and emotions are on the fritz, and each day seems to bring surprises that I am not sure how to deal with. The Horde King thinks he has me exactly where he wants me. He thinks he has taken all of my options away. I still have choices.

Embracing what destiny has planned for me, or escaping it.

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

So Synthia is being gifted as a concubine to the Horde King as previously promised to preserve the fragile peace between the Horde and Blood kingdoms. Syn is now placing faith in Ryder to ride to her rescue as her white knight before it’s too late. But things aren’t always as they seem In Faery and Syn is In for some major shocks and reveals when her eyes are finally opened to the truth of it all and secrets are finally revealed. So this one takes place predominately in the Otherworld as Syn tries to acclimatise to her new circumstances and condition. She’s also struggling with her new reality and her place and importance in Ryder’s life. While Ryder himself really need to step it up before he unintentionally loses what’s most precious to him. He really could take some lessons from his beast who himself knows exactly what it wants when it comes to there little pet. It’s all about priority’s really and balancing the human and Fae culture and expectations that come along with it all. Syn may now be fae herself but she has the heart of a human. There are old and new Jealousies rising and trials to traverse and I really adored how close Syn is in this to Ristan or the Demon as she affectionately calls him. He’s in a way taken on Adams responsibility’s as her closest confidant and he is ever so protective of his flower. This one also seemed to have a more mystical vibe to it than its two predecessors.

Really enjoyed this a lot and with the war with the mages starting to take centre stage and looming on the horizon, things are really starting to intensify.
