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+*
A MATTER OF TRUTH Goodreads:
Although my natural inclination is to clam up, I know it must have been tough for Will to just let that all out. So I lean my head against his back and admit to him something I haven’t done before. “Nepal reminds me of somebody I love.” I swallow the growing lump in my throat. Even now, four months in, it’s incredibly difficult to talk about Jonah. “I was sad today because when I heard some people talking in the diner about Tibet, I thought of this person, and of what Nepal means to him.” I take a deep breath and count to ten, because saying this next part is like stabbing myself in the gut. “I miss him so much it makes it hard to breathe. Sometimes it’s hard to move on, when memories refuse to let you go.”
Will’s voice reverberates through me when he quietly asks, “Did he die?”
I tell Will a lot—but I cannot talk anymore about Jonah with him. With anyone, really. All he knows is that love has broken me, too, and that I’m in no place to even contemplate a relationship. So much of me wants to open the floodgates, though, let Will into the dark parts of my heart like he’s slowly been letting me in, and someday I will do just that. It’s just . . . I need more time.
I shake my head against his back. There is no more Tell Me for the rest of the night.
5 of 5 A Matter Of Truth
First off I have to say that Heather Lyons has created a series that totally blew my mind away. Every time I read one of the books in the series whether it was the novella's or the books itself I get carried away to another world where I just don't want to leave. Lord the ups and downs in this book took me by storm but what I loved the most was that through all the crap Chloe had to endure she never gave up. In AMOT Chloe grew up and she did what she had to do. She made decisions that were hard but she knew she needed to make them and she stuck by her guns and did what she was supposed to do what was right for her.
Chloe is in Alaska paving out her own life with no intrusions or instructions or influences from anyone. She is living the life she wants and making her own decisions and yes at times it is hard but she knows she needs to do it. She knows she loves Jonah and she has the connection with Kellan but she knows she will have to chose one. She knows that the magic world is coming for her and they are coming soon but she is determined to make her own decisions.
The elders are pissed off and they are coming for Chloe with a vengeance. They want Chloe to make a choice and she better chose what they want or there will be hell to pay. Plus that pesky Jens is something else. Lord he is a force to be reckoned with. What he does to Chloe will have you saying WTF WTH what is he doing and what is he talking about........
I have to say that as the series continues I need book four like yesterday because the ending had me reeling and screaming at my kindle like a loony person. I actually yelled what in the bloody hell!
