Review: A Matter of Truth by Heather Lyons

Not long ago, Chloe Lilywhite seemingly had it all: a prized spot on the Magicals’ Council as lead Creator, a loving fiancé and Connection, and a wealth of good friends. But the poised young woman she projected was nothing more than a façade. Her parents all but disowned her. Power plays and accusations of murder within the Council rocked her confidence. And most difficult of all, her secret, a secondary Connection to Jonah’s twin brother, Kellan, became painfully impossible to resist. Desperate to gain control over her rapidly unraveling existence, Chloe did the unthinkable: she ran away.

Now living and working in Alaska under an alias, Chloe is slowly discovering who she is and, more importantly, who she wants to be. But the more she tries to leave the Magical world behind, the harder it becomes to stay hidden. The Elders are back with a vengeance, and the stakes have never been higher. Chloe finally has to make a choice: embrace her pre-ordained Fate or pave her own way in the worlds. One thing’s for sure, though—she’s finally up for the challenge.

*This is a New Adult title, suitable for readers 18+*

My Review:

A Matter of Truth is the 4th book in the Fate Series. It picks up right where we left off- Chloe running to Alaska. I will say I thought very hard and tried to come up with numerous scenarios of what will happen to Chloe now that she has run from everything that she knows and feels. And honestly nothing came close to what unfolds in AMOT – the whole time I was reading (which was in one sitting- and yes I did not sleep until I was done) I was on the edge of my seat. You get so wrapped up into this world Heather has created that you’re left with a book hang-over begging for the next book.

In A Matter of Truth we are taken through the many emotions that Chloe experiences in order to find herself and the truth within. I believe the need Chloe had to run away was absolutely necessary to create a balance and be able to do something all on her own without judgment from watching eyes. But no matter what, time catches up to her (being the Creator) and puts her new friends and family in danger. Chloe becomes awe-inspiring in her act to protect and fight with any means needed. And not only is she dealing with the Elders but she is also missing a piece of herself- her connections.

What do you say to the two most important people in your life when you’re reunited after up and leaving without a trace 6 months ago?

Chloe must go through the motions to put her life back together in Annar and be the Creator that everyone needs her to be. And what she finally learns is that even though Fate plays a part in her life she still gets to choose her future.

A Matter of Truth does not disappoint, Heather evokes numerous feelings in her writing. Here are some of those “feelings” I had while reading A Matter of Truth: heart-wrenching, emotional, romantic, inspiring, captivating, fanciful, and gripping.

I can’t say it enough- EVERYONE should read this series. Way to Go Heather, yet another amazingly fabulous story!
