From Amelia Hutchins, award-winning author of The Fae Chronicles, and author of the internationally bestselling series Playing with Monsters comes a new dark and sensual epic fantasy series set in a world of magic realms, mystical creatures, royal intrigue, and betrayal. Join Aria Primrose Hecate on a journey of self-discovery as she races to find her missing twin sister and save her family from a war that’s been brewing within the Nine Realms for over five hundred years.
Aria and her sisters return to the Human Realm of Haven Falls to find one of their own that’s gone missing. They soon discover things have changed in the Human Realm and that nothing is what it seems, including Knox, the egotistical, self-centered, frustratingly gorgeous man who declared himself King during their absence.
Sparks fly when the two enter a fiery battle of wills as Aria learns she is more than just a witch in the Hecate bloodline; she is much, much more.
Will Aria embrace her savage side to find her sister and save her family, or will she burn to ashes from his heated kisses and burning hot embrace?
Knox has ulterior motives for being in Haven Falls and never expected the little witch to show up and brazenly challenge his rule.
It was supposed to be easy; get in and get out. Move pieces into place and set the stage for the war he’s been planning for over five hundred years. Aria is his sworn enemy but something within her calls to him and he hates himself for craving the fiery kisses that have reignited his cold, dead heart. One taste, and he thought he could get her out of his system. He was wrong.
Will Knox let go of the memories of the past, driving his need for revenge that will destroy the pretty little witch he craves, or will he push the boundaries to fight for and claim what is his by right? Either way, war is inevitable. And nothing will stop him from reaching for what is his.
***** 5 Star Review *****
So I am a fairly new reader to the fantasy genre. I have read a couple series and have found that I enjoyed most. Every once in a while I crave an amazing fantasy story and this is exactly what I got from Flames of Chaos! This is my first book from Amelia Hutchins but I already can't wait to dive into more from her!
This story is centered around Aria. Aria is half witch and half something else. It's the unknown half of her that everyone once a piece of. She is powerful but just how powerful? Aria and her 15 sisters need to go back to their home town to help find their missing sister and to help their witch council protect the realms. Yes, you read that right, 15 sisters! Their mother had 8 sets of twins. The missing sister is Arias twin, Amara, and she would stop at nothing to find her.
When they get back to their town of Haven Falls, things have changed and not for the good. They are greeted by Knox and his men. Knox is now reigning king of the land and he wants them out immediately. But Aria and her sisters won't have it. I love this about Aria. She takes no crap from anyone and she lets no one walk all over her. She is B.A.D A.S.S!
As the story continues, there are twists I did not see coming. I thought I felt a relationship or connection from these two characters but it's so complex. I don't think there is a word to even describe it. Just when you think their is something brewing, BAM!!! Amelia snatches that feeling right from you. It was a complete battle of tug of war but damn was it good!
Throughout this book, you will have no clue who to trust and not to trust. You will be blindsided on multiple occasions. My jaw was left on the floor on multiple occasions.
This isn't a small book. It's 606 pages. I sometimes find that in longer books, I tend to get a little bored. Sometimes there is just to much filler and the book drags but you don't have to worry about that with this book. There is so much action from the very beginning, you will be flipping the pages and no want to put this book down.
It ends on a HUGE CLIFFANHANGER so consider yourself warned. Book 2 isn't out yet but I can not wait to get my hands on it! This ending has me so excited for what is to come in book 2. I know it's going to be explosive!
Flames of Chaos is dark, gritty, sexy and definitely not for the faint of heart. SOOOO GOOD!!! If you are a fantasy lover, you have to read this book! If you aren't a fantasty lover, you should give it a try. Don't be afraid to try something new. I am so glad I took the leap because I am loving it!
GET THIS BOOK!!!
