Marina cannot remember much about her
life except that she is lonely and the only daughter of Knut,
a powerful sorcerer. She is very isolated and her only friend
is a man that her father turned into a beast after he caught
him on their land. Marina feels an unexplainable pull to the
Duncan, the beast, came to Knutís keep to
find a missing friend. Instead, he is caught and turned into
this hideous beast that is unable to speak. Duncan feels
drawn to Marina, and thinks she may be under an enchantment
that hides her true identity, Anna, the woman he came to find.
Marina knows her life is not wonderful,
but she feels she must endure as she really has no choice she
gets sick every time she attempts to leave. Marina has been
having these incredibly sexy dreams about a woman she does not
know, but feels a connection to. Marina awakes after having
one of these dreams to find Duncan standing in her room.
Everything is about to change for both of them. Duncan is
transformed back to his original form and with his help Marina
begins to question her circumstances and her memories. As the
memories come back, they must face the reasons that initially
brought them to Knutís lands and the feelings they shared
during, before, and after the enchantment. Can their feelings
withstand all the changes they have and continue to face?
Sorcererís Daughter is an
interesting read. Marina while not content is settled with
the life she has and does not see an escape. Duncan has
always known what he wants and he has finally decided to go
after it. Trinidad West writes a story filled with
interesting characters, but I have to admit that I had a hard
time connecting with them. I tried to become invested in
their story, but I just did not quite make it.
Sorcererís Daughter was different, and while I wasnít
completely impressed, I will try more by Trinidad West.
