Destiny McCree wakes up on a beach with no memory, and a dead man lying next to her. When his body disappears with the dawn she’s even more confused. But as she’s running from the law she come across someone who helps her get away, and helps her remember exactly who she is: a sea-dragon.

Master thief Trae Wilson is a draman, half-human, half-dragon. He is looking for his half-brother Egan when he runs across Destiny. He just wants one thing from her, a ring he knows she has in her possession. But after spending time with her he knows he can’t let her go.

Together Destiny and Trae try to stay one step ahead of the scientists who have held Destiny, her mother and several other dragons hostage to use for experimentation. As the pair search for a plan to free those being held captive near Loch Ness, they discover passion for each other that can mean only one thing: they are soul mates.

I have to admit that I had a little bit of trouble getting into this story, but once I did it ran like gangbusters and kept me wanting to see what happened next. The tale is highly emotional, with feelings running from extreme sorrow to high passion. I loved Destiny’s character and the way she refused to back down in the face of great danger. Trae wove his way into my heart and I could see why Destiny would fall in love with him.

Destiny Kills is the first novel in Keri Arthur’s Myth and Magic series, and it definitely sets the stage for things to come. This story made me run the gamut in emotions from happiness to extreme sorrow. And while I had a little trouble at the beginning the ending left me wanting more of this world.

Ms. Arthur has definitely crafted a new series that fantasy lovers will enjoy. Make sure you get in on the ground floor.
