Life as I knew it ended the day I accepted my fate.
In its place is an existence even the wildest imagination could never fathom. Strange creatures walk among us, plotting our demise, and I’ve come to find that the fate of our world rests squarely on my shoulders. We’re all in danger and I’m trying to figure out how to make it through each day.
The key to my survival is a man I can’t figure out. As dangerous as the darkest fae, I have no choice but to work with him to stop the prophecy that’s foretold to be the ruination of mankind.
Carrick Byrne continues to be my only source of information, but he doles it out as he sees fit. He intrigues and scares me in equal measure, yet I can’t help but be attracted to him. And the more I discover about him, the more it becomes clear he feels the same.
As we travel to Faere in search of answers, we find that every piece of information leads to more questions, that every question leads to a new piece of the puzzle, and that, most importantly, no one can be trusted.
The more secrets we uncover, one thing is certain— if we have any chance of saving the world, we have to do it together.
A Discovery of Secrets and Fate is book two of the Chronicles of the Stone Veil series and is best enjoyed if read in series order.
*Note: This is the second book in a series that is best enjoyed if read in order. If you are new to the series, you can check out my review of book one HERE*
A Discovery of Secrets and Fate is the second book in the new adult/adult fantasy romance series, called Chronicles of the Stone Veil, by Sawyer Bennett. I absolutely loved book one- The Revelation of Light and Dark. It gripped me like a book has not done in a long time. While I didn’t think it was possible, I loved book two even more than book 1! I am now obsessed with this series, and I am super happy to report that each of the books in this series are releasing really closely together, which is fantastic because I absolutely positively NEED book 3 in my hands right now! If you are a fan of adult fantasies featuring fae and demons, then this is a must read series for you. I think it might be my favorite Sawyer Bennett series yet!
A Discovery of Secrets and Fate picks up right after The Revelation of Light and Dark left off, on that heck of a cliffhanger. View Spoiler »Finley just watched her twin sister Fallon turn into a super evil super bad dark fae right before her eyes. « Hide Spoiler Finley, Carrick and the gang all have to take this new information in and decide what their next steps will be. It is here that Finley finally finds out about the prophecy that Carrick learned in the first book. And we get to go on an adventure into Faere to try and devine more information about the prophecy. I loved this because it felt like the adventure was really starting. We have gotten a good foundation on the world, and the characters and now it is time to really build on that knowledge and watch everyone spur to action. I loved the plot of this book so much. Sawyer Bennett does a fantastic job weaving an emotional and high stakes story.
And can we just talk about the romantic/sexual tension between Finley and Carrick. Oh man, I loved it so much! Not a ton happens in terms of actual romance, but the slow burn is building and burning even hotter and I loved every second of it. Most of the chapters are from Finley’s point of view, but every once in a while we will get a Carrick chapter. I would love to see even more chapters from his point of view in the next book because they are always so delicious and packed full of great insight moments into his head. I cannot wait to see this romance ramp up in the next book.
A Discovery of Secrets and Fate also leaves us off on one heck of a cliff hanger, just like the first book! I love learning more information about Finley and the prophecy and I can’t wait for the next book. This series is so addictive, and I am totally hoping for more hot glances and romance in the next book. I love Finley and Garrick, and I am personally hoping that Pyke makes another appearance because I want to see some Jealously eek out of Garrick!
Bottom line: Fans of fantasies featuring light and dark fae set in our world will devour the Chronicles of the Stone Veil. I loved this book. It is one of my favorite books of 2021 so far, and I have a feeling this series is only going to get even better. It has favorite series written all over it for me. Bring on book three right now! I loved A Discovery of Secrets and Fate so much!
