BLOG TOUR + CHARACTER'S FAVORITE THINGS + GIVEAWAY: A Matter of Forever (Fate #1) by Heather Lyons


It all comes down to this . . . Chloe Lilywhite has struggled for years to find her footing in a series of dangerous and demanding worlds. Creator, first tier Council member, and one of the most powerful Magicals in existence, she was little more than one of Fate’s pawns. But now, Chloe is back home and ready to call the shots. She knows what she wants and who she wants to be. Except the Elders never got the memo. Annar and Magical-kind are under attack. The lives of Chloe’s loved ones, and life as they know it, are at stake. Chloe's the key to taking the Elders down, but they won't go quietly into the night. This time, neither will Chloe. *This is a New Adult title, suitable for readers 18+.  


Biggest *sigh* everrrrr. This is a series that I will never forget. It really has one of the most brilliant, creative, and intense storylines that I've ever read. My emotions were all over the place!

I've never read a more bittersweet series. I can't even begin to describe the feeling that I had when I finished this book. It was sort of like extreme happiness mixed with extreme sorrow mixed with understanding plus a little irrationality on my part. I mean... this series put me through the ringer emotionally yet it's one of my top favorite series. I'm not saying that flippantly either. When I first stumbled upon A Matter of Fate (Fate #1), I read all three of the first books in a three day window. I haven't been that absorbed or obsessed with a series in a long time. Long, long time.

As we all know, the last book left off on a intense cliffhanger. A Matter of Forever picks up right after that and the intensity is off the charts starting at page 1. I had NO idea what was going on. I was totally freaking out. Actually, I was pretty much freaking out the entire time. Even though I knew that Chloe had made her choice in the last book, things still felt unsettled to me because I knew that the other person was still hurting. I've never hurt so much for a character in my life! I wanted it all to be better for him, but it really was a lose/lose situation. Another long *sighhhhh*

I don't know what to say. I don't want to give anything away. If you've read this far into the series, I feel like there's no need for me to convince you to read this book because you're going to read it anyway (how couldn't you? lol). I will tell you that things are settled at the end but so bittersweet. Incredibly bittersweet. I've rarely ever felt so connected to a group of characters before. I felt their pain and their happiness. I worried for them. I cried for them. I just felt for them. Ohhhh the feels... I really believe the series ended where it was supposed to though.

This is truly an incredible conclusion a series that is on my top recommendation list. If you were my bff, I'd tell you to read this series (in fact, I did tell my bff to read it).



Chloe, Jonah, Kellan, Will, and Callie from the Fate series sat down and shared what some of their currently favorites are . . .


Chloe: New Girl. It totally makes me laugh.

Jonah: Uh, do sports count?

Kellan: SportsCenter does, bro. So that’s my answer. SportsCenter.

Will: Deadliest Catch, naturally.

Callie: Project Runway. I’ll even watch the re-runs.


Chloe: Hot dogs! Mmm…

Jonah: It depends on my mood. I really like Chinese, though.

Kellan: Chinese is good. So is Indian. Curry is my fave.

Will: Pancakes. Specifically my pancakes.

Callie: Does tea count?


Chloe: Amelie! Thank goodness for subtitles.

Jonah: Old School—right, Kel?

Kellan: Hell yeah. Old School is awesome. We must have watched it a hundred times in high school.

Will: Pacific Rim was brilliant.

Callie: Breakfast at Tiffany’s


Chloe: I love Taylor Swift. LOVE HER.

Jonah: I do not love Taylor Swift. But I do dig Death Cab for Cutie.

Kellan: I’m in a big AC/DC phase.

Will: Frightened Rabbit. They’re a bloody brilliant Scottish band everyone needs to listen to.

Callie: Chloe, I agree about Taylor Swift. I love her. But I’d say I’m really partial to Miranda Lambert lately.


Chloe: Blue. Specifically cerulean.

Jonah: Green. Specifically light green.

Kellan: Yellow. I mean, why else would I have a yellow car?

Will: Uh . . . I don’t have a favorite color.

Callie: Everyone has a favorite color, Will. You wear a lot of red, so just go with that? I’ll pick silver. 


Chloe: Jonah and I have the same favorite book, I think—isn’t that funny? Siddhartha by Herman Hesse. I love that it speaks to both of us.

Jonah: She’s right. It’s an amazing book. I’ve read it like five times.

Kellan: I’m all about On the Road by Jack Kerouac. My copy is totally marked up.

Will: Hmm . . . I really like About a Boy by Nick Hornby.

Callie: Is it weird I love A Little Princess by Frances Hodgson Burnett? Because that’s a beautiful story.
