4/5 Review: The Danger of Destiny by Leigh Evans


 
WHY WHISTLE IN THE DARK...
There are very few days off when you're on an epic quest. Believe me, I know. I'm Hedi Peacock-one half Fae, the other were-and if being a half-breed with one foot in each world isn't tough enough to manage, there are the four chambers of my heart to consider. The one who holds the strings? Robson Trowbridge, the Alpha of Creemore. If I had my way, he and I would be locked in a bedroom, for eternity, but a pressing family matter needs my attention. It's true what they say: A woman's work is never done.
WHEN YOU CAN HOWL AT THE MOON?
My twin brother is being held captive by the Old Mage in another realm. Lo and behold, as soon as Trowbridge and I arrive in Merenwyn, we're separated in spectacular, dramatic fashion-and I'm left to figure out how to maintain the fragile balance between my Fae magic and my wolf's blood in a realm that cries to both. Not easy, particularly when I'm keeping an iron-grip on my temper so as not to dispatch with extreme prejudice the odd wizard or smart-mouthed mutt servant who crosses my path. My mama never told me there'd be days like these, but I'm not going down without a fight...or my mate.

The Danger of Destiny is the fourth and I believe the last in the Mystwalker series. The story wraps up Hedi Peacock’s journey from a small-time thief and barista to a powerful woman and mate of Robson Trowbridge, the Alpha wolf of Creemore. The book opens immediately after the conclusion of the previous book I spent a great deal of time trying to understand the character's having not read the other books in the series - so I would highly recommend that it be read in order.

I enjoyed it but always felt as if I was missing something - more then likely this as due to my only reading the last book in the series. In this wonderfully descriptive novel - Ms. Evans takes us through a portal in an attempt to save Hedi's twin brother Lexi, who has been bonded to an old Mage.

We are told the story through the voice of Hedi. Again, I think I would have liked her better if I had seen her growth through the previous books. But, Ms. Evan's weaves a wonderful tale of adventure, love, and learning to live when you are half fairy and half were. 
That being said - I would really recommend the series, if you are into the Fantasy and/or Paranormal genres. I am going to try and fit them in and see if my opinion changes over the next few months.
