Publisher's Summary

Have you ever heard of the old Celtic legends of the Fae - beautiful, magical, deadly, and a love of messing with humans just for kicks and giggles?

Welcome to my world.

What started out as a strange assignment leads to one of the most gruesome murder mysteries of our time, and 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 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.

Warning: Mature content and language not intended for anyone under the age of 18.

This audiobook is not intended for anyone under the age of 18, or anyone who doesn't like lip biting, throw-your-ass-on-the-bed, tear-your-clothes-off-and-leave-you-panting dominant alpha male characters. This is a dark, dangerous, intense, gritty, and raw audiobook. Scenes are dark, disturbing, and scorching-hot. This is a soul-crushing, tear-jerking, and leave-you-hanging-on-the-edge-of-your-seat fast-paced audiobook. Side effects may include, but are not limited to: drooling, lip biting, wet panties, crying, and screaming at the author. If any of these things happen, do not seek medical attention - get the next book in the series and enjoy the ride!

I need more.....

If you're new to Amelia Hutchins, then you're in for a wild ride! If you're like me and have been wait anxiously for this series to hit audible, it's been worth wait. Love, Love, LOVED IT! The world building, characters, secondary (for now) characters are just breath-taking! Alpha males everywhere! Strong heroines, gripping story and the best part...this is only book one! I'm like a damn crack addict when it comes to the Fae Chronicles, I can't get enough.

Worth the credit? Hot damn! It's worth two!

What!!! I need more

This book was so amazing. I love PNR and am now a fan of the talented Amelia’s. Loved Ryder and Cin. This book was super hot!! My ears almost caught on fire. So intense, action, mystery, drama, death, panty melting goodness. Both Sarah and Stephen did an absolutely amazing job narrating! They brought the characters to life.

I need more!! I’m MOURNING the lack of the next book on audible.

The story took a little longer to hook me. The author reiterates things a little too often. The narrator is a smidge too monotone but she is good. I’d give her 4.5 stars if I could. And the guy narrator... he is a 5 star all the way!
I am completely in love with the characters. It’s a lot of steamy build-up for the two hottest scenes. There is true loss, twists and suspense!
Admittedly, I tear up if I’m really attached to the characters. And I did for this book.
I went to download the next one, even prepared to buy the 3 credit bundle if need be... but it’s not available!!!! I’m bereft. I need to finish this book and I am so spoiled with audible that reading actual books isn’t usually an option. But I will be buying h some paperbacks.
Please continue the audiobooks! I will buy them too. (Same narrators PLEASE!)

I LOVed It!

I loved this story!!! This is paranormal at it finest! The story was intriguing. The characters were fun, sexy and wonderful. Not to mention the action! It is full of it! From the beginning I was entranced to the ending it was filled with action, lust, murder and mayhem. My issue with this book is it ends on a cliffhanger. That just frustrates me. The book is so good I would have easily wanted to see what trouble these guys were going to fall into next. Cliffhanger not needed.

I did listen to this on audio. Sarah Puckett and Stephen Dexter did the narration. They both did a good job but Sarah delivers 99%of the book
Is book 2 coming to audio?

Loved Loved this world

I went into this one with little back story to what I was diving into. Wow, this world and story was amazing. I love the MC's. It was super hot and full of sexual tension and steamy sex. I need all of her books on audiobook like yesterday! I can't wait to listen to the rest of the series when available. The narrators did an amazing job. Highly recommend

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Sooo Good!! Need more Ryder!

I absolutely loved every single minute of this audiobook, it was exciting, adventurous, steamy and chock full of twists and turns. Both the plot and the characters were perfectly developed. Synthia is a remarkable heroine; she is smart, independent, crazy fierce with remarkable abilities. Ryder is a true alpha male, super hot, dominant, powerful, and cunning. Ryder and Syn are marvellous together, their chemistry is off the charts and utterly potent. Both characters have a stubborn streak and know how to get under each other's skin.

Amelia Hutchins is an exceptional storyteller with a brilliant imagination and the ability to enthral her readers. She has created a fantastic world of Fae, witches, and magic. Hutchins writes incredible steamy scenes, they are wicked and scorching-hot.

The narration by Sarah Puckett and Stephen Dexter was great. Most of the narration was done by Sarah Puckett. I enjoyed her performance; she injected emotion into her reading and giving life to the characters. Stephen Dexter has a deep masculine voice and his performance as Ryder is crazy good.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and eagerly anticipating the release of the second book. I highly recommend Fighting Destiny. This is the best Fae book I've read or listened to in a very long time. Lastly, heed the warnings, this book is gritty, dark, sweltering and completely on fire.

Exciting start to the Fae Chronicles

I’m just getting to this audiobook and found it in my long TBL.

It’s an amazing, fast paced story of Cynthia who thinks she is a witch finding herself along the way and doing so with a alpha Fae prince Ryder taking her along on an exciting trip of who done it situation and who is who thrilling book. I’m loving this BUT it ends here and they are many books in the series with only this first one on Audible😳. This is like hanging a carrot in front of a rabbit and then holding-it from the rabbit indefinitely. Aghast over that. Thankfully I was gifted this audiobook and will just need to put it away until there’s more audiobooks available. I was desperate and even looked into the books but they are expensive so I’m going to try waiting for the audiobooks.

Narration was spot on. Sarah showcases Cynthia or Cyn as one bad ass fighter who stands up for what she believes in and does the males really well also. Stephen Dexter was new to me and I try found his gruff and take no sh*t attitude come through really well for Ryder. Just wish the next books were available 🥺

OMG Soooo Good!

This was one of the best PNR book i have listen to all year. Synthia's powers are off the charts. Ryder is a fae that is more than what he seems. Together they are explosive and extremely sexual, that makes for a wonderful combination. If you love PNR this is a must have. I adore Sarah Puckett and Stephen Dexter narrating these characters. Can't wait to hear them read book 2.

Definitely didn't expect this

Wow. This book was way better than I anticipated being. Maybe I was judging the book by its cover? But the story was so rich and entertaining. In this world, everyone is aware of the paranormal. The fae, especially, are on every news network. Luckily the witches are a little more secretive so they have more privacy. The Dark Fae Prince is set to marry the Light Fae Princess but she is being targeted. Her picture is found defiled at crime scenes where fae and witches alike are being murdered for different body parts. Ryder, the dark fae prince, hired Cynthia's guild and her personal coven to look into the murders. Cynthia hates the fae for personal reasons and has reserves about working with them but since witches are involved also, she decides to work with them. Obviously, there is way more that happens but I don't like writing spoiler reviews so you'll just have to wait and find out. This story was honestly so interesting. The author did a fantastic job in brining a plot into this romance novel. It was definitely a different approach to the romance in this novel also. The fae feed while they have sex. So, when they need to feed, they just do the deed. And Ryder is determined to get Cynthia which caused interesting scenes. I loved the pacing of this novel and it ran so smoothly together. This book was such a success that I cannot wait to continue this series.

I absolutely loved these characters. Cynthia was honestly such a bad ass character that her consistent whining never bothered me... and she did complain a good amount. Her character development was so fantastic though. I really found myself attached to her. Then the attraction that sizzled between her and Ryder was unbelievable. This was an ultimate enemies to lovers trope but I don't know if they really ever got out of the enemy zone. Ryder was an interesting character. While his chapters don't really seem much other than explaining how much he wants to make Cynthia his, it shows that there is more to his character than we know. The side characters were just as amazing also. I felt connected to each one and wanted to know more. The next book will definitely be interesting with the revelations that were given at the end of the book.

Overall, Fighting Destiny was a wonderfully plotted book. Along with the very well written plot, there were plenty of steamy moments also. The author definitely didn't skimp on those parts. I loved the characters and what they brought to this story. I highly recommend this book if your looking for a new twist on the paranormal world with a lot of sexual tension.

Narration Review
Sarah Puckett does it again. She is seriously such an amazing narrator and I have loved everything she has done so far. Stephen Dexter did a fantastic job also. Even though he didn't have much narration he was the perfect voice for Ryder. This is definitely an audio I would recommend.

holy smoke!!!!

first listen for me and whoa shut the front door. this is awesome. to mix modern day with paranormal and do it well is pretty spectacular. my only sad thing is I have to wait for audible to Bring in the rest of the chronicles....and seeing as this one ended on a cliffhanger.....aargh!!!
it's telling tales within tales and secrets within secrets and discoveries within discoveries.
Ryder is smoking hot and the sexy parts of the book are steamy!!!!
as for the alpha sex on a stick fae men, panty melting just doesn't seem to cut it when describing them...in fact demons and vamps alike...woooweeeee.
syn is sass with a capital S and is definitely STRONG
if I want to stay in the same vein I have to skip fwd to the monsters trilogy. I thought I'd listen to this one first to get a baseline on what everything inside the paranormal was, I'm probably spoiling it for myself as I'll find things out from the fae chronicles, but half the fun is knowing how it gets there 😉😉😉

Average

I downloaded based on the relatively high ratings but I couldnt not get into the story properly because of the way the story was read aloud. I am interested in the story and had hopes for this audiobook. just that the audio seemed too monotonous? maybe even robotic, which makes the seemingly exciting parts, not as exciting in my opinion.

***Wow Just Wow***

This book is brilliantly written, the world and character building is exceptional, Amelia Hutchins is a fantastic story teller, she gets you right in the heart. Sarah Puckett you are brilliant, you have the sultriest and sexiest voice ever and Stephen Dexter wow your voice can get a woman all hot and bothered *sighs*
