Flames of Chaos (Legacy of the Nine Realms Book 1) by Amelia Hutchins

Emoji Review by Rebecca Dixon

I finished reading โ€˜Flames of Chaos,โ€™ by Amelia Hutchins and all I gotta say is WOW ๐Ÿคฉ WOW ๐Ÿคฉ WOWZERS ๐Ÿคฏ (FYI, Iโ€™m not affiliated with the author, not in the book biz, reading is just a HOBBY, and Iโ€™m just a regular reader that is super passionate ๐Ÿ’— about spreading the word on GREAT books!) There are NO spoilers ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป!

Ok guys ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป!!! I have been seeing people rec this book and letโ€™s be honest โœŒ๐Ÿป, Amelia Hutchins is a FORCE ๐ŸŒฌ to be reckoned with when it comes to Fantasy ๐Ÿงšโ€โ™€๏ธ & Paranormal Romance ๐Ÿ’‹(dannnng her steam is so hooooootttttttttt ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ!) So I pretty much KNEW it was going to be GREAT ๐Ÿคฉ! And I was NOT disappointed ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป! Likeโ€ฆ imagine if Stephanie Hudson & Nikki St Crowe/Kresley Cole/JR Ward had a baby ๐Ÿ‘ถ๐Ÿผ, it would be Amelia Hutchins kicking butt ๐Ÿคบ & taking names โœ๏ธ ! (Oh my gosh is that weird ๐Ÿ˜ณ? That is weird, right ๐Ÿ˜ฌ?! Why the heck did I write that! Doh ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ! Forgive me Amelia, but Iโ€™m just trying to say YOU ROCK ๐Ÿคฉ with that FANTASY ๐Ÿงšโ€โ™€๏ธ & STEAM ๐Ÿ”ฅ girl! So yeah, errrโ€ฆ umm.. awkward moment ๐Ÿฅด โ€ฆ pressing on ๐Ÿ˜… โ€ฆ)

So the story ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป!! OK โœ… so the story kicks off with sister witches (they are all always born as a set of twins ๐Ÿ‘ฏโ€โ™€๏ธ and can be different witch combosโ€ฆ werewolves ๐Ÿบ, sirens ๐Ÿงœโ€โ™€๏ธ, succubusโ€™ ๐Ÿ’‹, how freaking COOL ๐Ÿ˜Ž is that?!) Yeah, so it starts off with all of these sister witches ๐Ÿช„ returning to an immortal city in the human ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿป realm in search of the FMCโ€™s missing twin sister. The immortal city ๐Ÿ™ is the gateway to the 9 realms ๐ŸŒŽ, where the Witches bloodline ๐Ÿฉธ sets the rules for entry. These gals have been away from it all for a while and things have changed in a BIG way (in the form of a freaking POWERFUL ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป hunk of a KING ๐Ÿ‘‘ & his band of HOT ๐Ÿฅต merry men taking over the immortal city!) Before our girl can even enter the city, a cascade of black SUVs ๐Ÿš˜ storm in and make it MORE THAN crystal ๐Ÿ’Ž clear that these B!TCHES (oops WITCHES ๐Ÿ˜†) are NOT ๐Ÿšซ welcome back! And just as the KING & our girl lock eyes ๐Ÿ‘€ (w/freaking sizzling heat ๐Ÿ”ฅ, I tell you!)โ€ฆ yeah and just as we start to think ๐Ÿ’กour girl is about to be tossed out on her hiney ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜„โ€ฆ we realize the force to be reckoned with just may not be the KING after all ๐Ÿ˜ฒ!! โ€ฆ But something unknown and FIERCE ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿป brewing within her! (Rattle! Rattle! Rattle!)

Mannnnnn, I gotta tell you ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป! This book is an enemies-to-lovers trope on STEROIDS ๐Ÿ˜ฒ๐Ÿ˜ฒ๐Ÿ˜ฒ! Itโ€™s so so so so good ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป. And like, when I started itโ€ฆ I thoughtโ€ฆ huh ๐Ÿค”, I wonder if it will be a typical enemies-to-lovers? But OH MY GOSH ๐Ÿคฉ! This is the furthest from predictable and the HEAT IS OFF THE CHARTS HOT ๐Ÿ”ฅ HOT ๐Ÿ”ฅ HOT ๐Ÿ”ฅ HOT ๐Ÿ”ฅ! Like a GOOD portion of this I was thinking ๐Ÿ’ญ โ€ฆ WHOA ๐Ÿ˜ฎ this is a smokin’ HOT ๐Ÿฅต Paranormal Romance! And then, like, it just got so FIERCE ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป with the FANTASY ๐Ÿงš๐Ÿงšโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿงšโ€โ™‚๏ธ. This really is an epic Fantasy story with multiple realms ๐ŸŒŽ, creatures ๐Ÿ‘น, wars ๐Ÿ—ก on the horizon ๐ŸŒ…โ€ฆ itโ€™s just so so so GOOD ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป. And the mystery ๐Ÿ”Ž element is so GREAT ๐Ÿคฉ too! I ๐Ÿ’ฏ LEGIT needed to know what the HELL happened to her sister ๐Ÿ˜ฉ!!! And I am SO HAPPY ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป! SO HAPPY ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป! To tell you that YOU DO FIND OUT in THIS BOOK ๐Ÿฅณ๐Ÿฅณ๐Ÿฅณ! Praise the book goddess ๐Ÿ’ƒ(errrโ€ฆ aka, Amelia ๐Ÿ˜†) for not leading us astray on this! And ohhhhhhhh ๐Ÿ‘€ when you find outโ€ฆ.. likeโ€ฆ.. WOW ๐Ÿ˜ฏ. WOW ๐Ÿ˜ฎ. WOW ๐Ÿ˜ฒ. WOW ๐Ÿ˜ต. JUST ๐Ÿคš๐Ÿป. WOW ๐Ÿคฏ. SHOCKING ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ! (ehhhh probably should mention there is a tiny itty bitty bit of horror ๐Ÿฉธ๐Ÿ”ช ๐ŸงŸ here to show how EVIL ๐Ÿ‘ฟ one realm can beโ€ฆ but it’s tiny ๐Ÿค๐Ÿป! Just press on if you donโ€™t like that kind of thingโ€ฆ itโ€™s so worth it ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป!)

And LIKE! I have to say too that usually with PRN/Romance Fantasies Iโ€™m RAVING ๐Ÿ˜ about the MMC firstโ€ฆ and donโ€™t worry ๐Ÿ˜‰ โ€ฆ I definitely will here in sec! But this FMC IS SO SO BADA$S ๐Ÿคบ. She is so INTELLIGENT and she takes NO CRAP ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿป from anyone! Especially our boy ๐Ÿ˜‚! And sheโ€™s FREAKING funny at times! Like, I just have to give you a tiny snippitโ€ฆ so so funnyโ€ฆ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜…โ€ฆ.

โ€œClimb on, it wonโ€™t fu@k itselfโ€โ€ฆโ€ฆ.
โ€œWhat the fu@k, Knox? Why are you naked? Why am I naked? Stop touching that thing, for fu@kโ€™s sake โ€ฆโ€ ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ

So yeah, so funny ๐Ÿ˜‚! And OMG the pineapple ๐Ÿ! Man, if you read it, youโ€™ll KNOW ๐Ÿ + ๐Ÿฉฒ! LMAO ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ. Andโ€ฆ OH MY GOODNESS the stuff that goes on in conjunction with the rattle ๐Ÿ momentsโ€ฆ like I canโ€™t say particulars, cuz spoilers โš ๏ธ! But the bluntness of the lines in those moments (you lack brains & are a sh!t male provider ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ!) LMAO ๐Ÿคฃ โ€ฆ like LMAO ๐Ÿคฃ! I laughed so HARD! I totally DID NOT expect that with this book! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

And yessssssssssโ€ฆ.. last but not leastโ€ฆ. OUR BOY ๐Ÿฅต! Man Iโ€™m so conflicted with this guy! No question, he is SMOKING HOT ๐Ÿ”ฅ. But he is a PROPER enemy ๐Ÿฅท in an enemies-to-lovers trope! So one moment, Iโ€™m OBSESSED โค๏ธโ€๐Ÿ”ฅ with him and the next moment Iโ€™m like WTF ๐Ÿคฌ. Why did you do that you ALPHAHOLE ๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ก! And itโ€™s just so PERFECT ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป! The dirty talk OMG ๐Ÿ”ฅ. OMG๐Ÿ”ฅ. Justโ€ฆ WOW ๐Ÿฅต. This is NOT fade-to-black! Nope! But itโ€™s also not EROTICA (like itโ€™s by no means completely smut!) It really is perfect for the kinds of books I like because there is a KICKA$S ๐Ÿคบ FMC WITH A HOT ๐Ÿฅต MMC, lots of great steam ๐Ÿ†๐Ÿ‘๐ŸŒถ, but also a HUGE Fantasy non-romantic plotline that has you on the edge of your seat! Jumping up and down ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป! Hooting ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿป & Hollering ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป!

Annnnndโ€ฆ the ending of this bookโ€ฆ the ENDING ๐Ÿคฏ๐Ÿคฏ๐Ÿคฏ! GOBSMACKED! SO DRAMATIC ๐ŸŽญ! SO GOOD ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป. SO SATISFYING ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป. It really reminded me a lot of CC (hereโ€™s looking at you SJM fans!)โ€ฆ I mean, itโ€™s NOTHING like CCโ€ฆ. but itโ€™s similar in the fact that it sneaks up on you! You enjoy the beginning of the book, yes, but by the end of the book it is just so EPICALLY EXPLOSIVE ๐Ÿ’ฅ ๐Ÿ’ฅ๐Ÿ’ฅ and you are like THANK YOU ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป THANK YOU ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป THANK YOU ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป Amelia for writing this and THANK YOU TO ALL THE FB GROUPS for recommending it! I am starting Book 2 today and I LITERALLY CANNOT WAIT ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป.

So if you LOVE enemies-to-lovers trope that is amped up to itโ€™s MAX, a SASSY takes no CRAP ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿป, tell-it-like-it-is HONEST โœŒ๐Ÿป FMC, a HOT/COLD ALPHAHOLE ๐Ÿฅต that SCREAMS SEX ๐ŸŒถ for DAYS, a FANTASTIC FANTASY ๐Ÿงšโ€โ™€๏ธ plotline that has you on the edge of the seat needing the second book STAT ๐Ÿšจโ€ฆ give this a shot! Itโ€™s only 99 cents on KU and it may just be the PERFECT ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’‹ amount of HEAT ๐Ÿ”ฅ & FANTASY ๐Ÿงšโ€โ™€๏ธ for you!
