Name: A Matter of Forever (Fate #4)
Author: Heather Lyons
My favorite book of the series. Seriously, this was awesome, I absolutely loved it.
Please, please, please. If you haven’t read the previous books, you may want to skip this review since it might be a little spoilerish. I don’t mean for it to be so, but… you know, it may reveal things that a non 😉 (a person who hasn’t read the books) may want to read the series first. And you should. Just saying ;).
This is the fourth book of the Fate series. The last one about Chloe and Jonah and Kellan. After Chloe finally making a decision about who she wanted to spend her days and the rest of her life with, she’s now in a good place, a really good one, but of course, nothing couldn’t be this sweet. The Elders are still out there, people are still being killed and Enlilkian wants her to him. Bad. Chloe’s problem are now even more serious than they were before. No more boy drama, there’s no time for that. It’s time she stands up, makes a decision about doing what she needs to do to save the Magicals. There’s no more time to hesitate or to hide. Things need to be done and they need to be done now. And that’s exactly what she does. Gotta love her for that.
“This are our leaders, yet they¡re acting like a pack of confused, scared children wo don’t know their asses from their heads.”
Yep, I love how much of a badass she has become.
This book has a bit of everything. It has a bit of action, a lot of love, a bit of suspense, a bit of happy tears, a lot of sad tears too. I had happy moments, frustrating moments, very sad moments, moments in which I was telling LeAnn how much I wanted to punch her, some moments I was scared out of my mind trying to figure out what was happening, then, there were moments where I was so happy I couldn’t contain myself. So, you could say it was a roller coaster. Yes, a highly emotional one.
I wasn’t really expecting it to end the way it did. I’m happy with it, trust me. But, it had a bittersweet kind of feeling at the end. And I cried. A lot. At work, at the gym, in my car outside the gym, at home… you name it. I cried. I guess, I had a hunch about the Connections and how they were going to turn out to be, but… man I wasn’t expecting THAT. *sigh*
I absolutely loved every single moment about Chloe and Jonah in all of the books, but in this one, it was so much more beautiful. Seriously, he’s such a good guy and has a beautiful heart and mind and soul. I just love him so, so much. For me, they’re perfect together. I can’t see it any other way. And Chloe… it’s amazing how much she’s grown. She’s now a mature woman who can not only take care of herself but those she loves and not by running away. She now faces her problems head on. I adore and admire her so much. She knows her purpose. She knows what and who she wants. She knows what she needs to do and embraces it.
“Love should be easy, and yet it’s the most complicated emotion of all.”
Kellan. How do I start with Kellan? I mean, I’ve always known he’s a good and decent guy (setting his extracurricular activities aside). I can only imagine a small portion of how much he’s had to suffer with his Connections to both Chloe and Jonah and not being able to do anything about that. And I don’t dislike him or even hate him. I just love Jonah. But this book showed me a whole different side of him. He made me cry a lot. I wasn’t expecting him to break my heart the way he did. But he did. I’ve always known he loves both Chloe and his twin brother deeply, they’re the most important people in the world to him, so I can only imagine how hard it must be to see the girl you love with your twin brother, your best friend, and not only that but having to make the decision he made. It must not have been an easy thing to do and yet, he did it, not only for his sake but his brother’s and Chloe’s too, because that’s what he does. He defends and protects those he loves. He’s good like that. I’ve truly hoped he could find someone that loves him as he deserves, just not Chloe.
I loved this book. I love this series. Yes, it was hard a first, because I was so into the story and so frustrated I couldn’t think straight, but it was so interesting I couldn’t stop reading. The love triangle is not the same I’m used to, so it was a bit refreshing, even at the most infuriating parts. It was different. The whole book was amazing.
Oh, and just on the record, just so we’re clear, just in case you forgot:
I love Jonah Whitecomb.
