Title: A Matter of Truth
Author: Heather Lyons
Published: November 2013
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.

My Review: If you’ve read my reviews for A Matter of Fate, A Matter of Heart and Beyond Fate, it’s no secret that this series and these characters have gotten under my skin and, in some cases, made themselves at home in my heart. So, it shouldn’t surprise you that this story continued the trend…capturing me once again.
The title of this book is particularly fitting as, in reality, it’s all about truth…the truth of accepting one’s feelings, the truth of breaking someone’s heart, the truth of deciding to move forward, the truth of facing your fears. So much happens in this story that I fear I’ll give something away and I don’t want to do that. But I do need to somehow make you pick up and read these books – ah, a blogger’s dilemma!
Once again, Heather Lyons has woven a captivating and heart-wrenching tale. Her characters continue to face the external dangers of evil that threaten to destroy their kind and the internal emotional turmoil of both building and breaking relationships that matter. She brings back all the characters we’ve grown to love (and, in some cases, hate) and also introduces us to a few new ones just to spice things up. Chloe becomes a stronger person in this book. She looks Fate in the eye and finally takes what she wants. This will make some readers happy and others will be devastated. I wish I could tell you which camp I’m in but, alas, that is undoubtedly a spoiler. So, I must move on to tell you that I absolutely fell head over heels for Will…a new character who is brave and true, funny, tortured and, lucky for us, hot! The addition of this character gave Chloe exactly what she needed…a best friend and a partner in crime. Chloe’s “family” continues to grow and the support she needs to fight this war is finally in place. And the anticipation of what’s coming next is killing me.
This book is a roller coaster of emotions. Like the others before it, I was drawn to the characters and their struggles. I cheered, I saw red, I cried, I laughed, I sighed, I cried (wait, did I already say that?!?). And now I have to wait until the next installment, a wait I am not looking forward to at all but one that I’ll endure because I know the next book will undoubtedly be worth it!
