discovered beyond a shadow of a doubt, that he and Ondrea
are fated to be joined. He must fight to win her and many
obstacles block his progress. Kieran is from a family of

Magic sucked me into Ondrea and Kieranís world
immediately. The backdrop is fascinating, and the coupleís
complexity is revealed through trials they face together.
Ondrea, Kieran and Gabriel reminded me of Romeo, Juliet and
Paris all confronted by the inevitability of destiny. I got
a kick out of how Ondrea and Kieran handle their families,
itís sweet and firm.
role is succinct without limiting them to tradition,
something Iíve come to relish in Brenna Lyonsí stories.
Thereís a sensual radiance in the writing that perfectly
balances out the dark fantasy genre to mesmeric effect.
Every scene falls into place with deft precision and elastic
creativity which compliments the narrative along with the
thread of questions woven into the fabric of the story.
Just how much of our lives is fate? And do we have the
means to control our own destiny? Thereís no fixed answer.
Ondrea and Kieran prove that no matter what is or isnít
predetermined, weíre responsible for our choices. Love is
the ultimate magician.
