Series Description or Overview Edit

Have you ever heard of the old Celtic legends of the Fae - beautiful, magical, and deadly creatures that have a love of messing with humans just for kicks and giggles? — Welcome to my world.

What started out as a strange assignment, lead to one of the most gruesome murder mysteries of our times. My friends and I are set and determined to find out who is killing off Fae and Witches alike. Couple of problems in the way – I hate the Fae and the Prince of the Dark Fae is bound and determined that I work for him. He’s a rude, overbearing egotistical ass with a compulsive need to possess, dominate and control me. Oh – did I mention that he is absolutely sex-on-a-stick gorgeous and he makes me feel things that I never ever wanted to feel for a Fae...every time he touches me or looks at me with those dangerous golden eyes he seems to pull me further in under his spell, despite my better judgment. My friends and I can’t trust anyone and nothing is as it seems on the surface – not even me. ~ Goodreads | Fighting Destiny

World Edit

✥ Faeries. Half angel, half demon. Unable to lie. Iron is their Kryptonite. Impiorum Fallus is not your normal Faerie. The whole Downworld race is on a mission—a mission to kill her. She must watch her back every step of every day. In the end, will she discover her purpose in life or will she be killed? ~ The Fae Chronicles - Wattpad

Protagonist Edit

Synthia Raine McKenna: 'Syn'. Witch/ Fae/ Demi-goddess/ Goddess. Also the Queen of the Horde. Works for the Guild in the Eastern Section of Washington State as an enforcer and assassin. Hates and fears the Fae. Parents were killed by Fae when she was 5 years old.

✥ Synthia never had a normal life. She witnessed her parents' murders by Fae at the age of 5—she was already able to cast magic as her father was a powerful warlock. After their deaths, she was adopted by her uncle who was the head of the local Guild- a society that protects humans from harm from the Faerie world and their occupants. The Fae had come out to the humans about 30 years prior and most were celebrities in our world, their beauty and grace far exceeding that of the humans. Syn hates every. Single. One. Of. Them. They cannot be trusted EVER, and they have sex with humans to feed from their emotions- sometimes turning the humans into soulless, mindless zombies, FIZ. Synthia is raised in the Guild, training to be a warrior that will eventually get vengeance for the death of her parents. She is now 21 years old and her uncle/mentor sends her on a mission for the Dark Prince of the Fae- Ryder. ~ Elysian Fields Book Reviews: The Fae Chronicles

Book Cover Blurbs Edit

BOOK ONE—Fighting Destiny (2013): Have you ever heard of the old Celtic legends of the Fae - beautiful, magical, and deadly creatures that have a love of messing with humans just for kicks and giggles? — Welcome to my world. What started out as a strange assignment, lead to one of the most gruesome murder mysteries of our times. My friends and I are set and determined to find out who is killing off Fae and Witches alike. Couple of problems in the way – I hate the Fae and the Prince of the Dark Fae is bound and determined that I work for him. He’s a rude, overbearing egotistical ass with a compulsive need to possess, dominate and control me. Oh – did I mention that he is absolutely sex-on-a-stick gorgeous and he makes me feel things that I never ever wanted to feel for a Fae...every time he touches me or looks at me with those dangerous golden eyes he seems to pull me further in under his spell, despite my better judgment. My friends and I can’t trust anyone and nothing is as it seems on the surface – not even me. ~ Goodreads | Fighting Destiny

BOOK TWO—Taunting Destiny (2013): 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. ~ Goodreads | Taunting Destiny (The Fae Chronicles, #2) by Amelia Hutchins

BOOK THREE—Escaping Destiny (2014): 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. ~ Goodreads | Escaping Destiny (The Fae Chronicles, #3) by Amelia Hutchins

BOOK FOUR—Seducing Destiny (2015): Less than six months ago my life was twisted and flipped on its side. Things have changed so much I barely recognize myself anymore.

  • I am no longer an Enforcer.
  • I am no longer a Witch.
  • I no longer hate the Fae. (For the most part)
  • And the sex-on-a-stick-gorgeous-Fae? He isn't really the Dark Prince.

No, he is the father of my children and with the babies on the way, the land dying and the Mages closing in; alliances will have to be formed if we are all to make it through the war that is coming to our front door. Between warring Gods and Goddesses, how are any of us supposed to win? ~ Goodreads | Seducing Destiny (The Fae Chronicles, #4) by Amelia Hutchins
