SUMMARY
What started as a simple night out with his warriors quickly turns into one of Echo's worst nightmares. If being kidnapped and assaulted isn't bad enough, no one is prepared for the revelation of who is behind the attack.

More questions arise. Echo's mother is strangely absent, and when he meets his father, it's not the happy reunion he'd anticipated. Even more disturbing is the reasoning behind his conception and the newest task entrusted to him. Will he have the courage to see it through, though?

Delving into Hex's memories opens more heartache and pain, but finally gives the demons some of the answers they seek. When everything comes out in the open, only one thing is clear to Echo—the gods are not to be trusted. Having all the answers wrapped in a pretty, red bow still doesn't prepare him for the twist that no one saw coming.

NOTE! This is the conclusion of the Fatefully Yours collection. These books are not stand alone. Each is a continuation of the previous book and must be read in the numbered order. The final book contains a happily forever after for the beta hero and all his men.

We are the champions….of the world. RECKONING is the 9th and final installment in the Fatefully Yours series and I am sorry to say, for me, it fell flat. I am a big fan of Ms. Evans' writing and felt that this wasn't her strongest work. Echo and his mates are ready to fight to the end to save themselves and their friends, but when all things finally comes to a head, they aren't sure exactly who they are fighting against.

I enjoyed the characters and watching them try and make this untraditional relationship work. I appreciated that it wasn't always easy and they had their moments when things weren't happy, happy, joy, joy. What I didn't expect in this book were the insecurities and self-doubts that many of the men experienced. I didn't enjoy reading about these larger than life Alpha males almost whining, "Echo doesn't love me best".

Most of the mysteries were resolved but not all of them satisfactorily. I still wondered what the heck Hades had to do with any of this? There really could have been a couple of more chapters dealing with the ultimate fall out for the prisoners held at the compound and their resolutions. I felt sorry for Echo's mom and thought that he was a little harsh in his reaction to her. The little twist at the end, I didn't see coming and had me chuckling.

All in all, I have to say the journey was more enjoyable than the ending. There was so much build-up to this final battle I was expecting something of epic proportions and that just didn't happen. But the message you definitely walk away with is that love can conquer all and we are always stronger together than apart. Which, if you think about it, isn't a bad thing at all.
