Having never heard of Jean Johnson found in my hand a copy of The Sword and from the very first book new I had to keep on reading this fresh new series of 8 hunky mage brothers with all the enchantments, magical elements, whimsy, great romance and adventures all in a wonderful fantasy mix of great individual stories. He also has a prophesy. Unlike his eccentric twin Rydan, Trevan is more than ready to meet and court his destined bride. Revan is just perfect as a friend, lover and Cat. She has been training for it for years, and she had to give it all up to protect her sister.
Only this time not one but two women, Amara and Arora, arrive on the isle. She may be fierce, proud, and from a different culture, but after all, he is the Cat, and none but the most fascinating and challenging of women could satisfy him. Their shifter transformations are cool. The through line of the tale makes for complicated plotting which intertwines nicely with the romantic storyline to make this far more than just a typical romance. Trevan is the one who never had any problems with women and charming them, but now he has to deal with a prickly, resentful, stubborn woman who will not make it easy for him to embrace his Destiny. Rora has a powerful secret inside of her, and mages are willing to kill her to get control of all that power. Yeah, that is easy to respect.
This book was good, but not as good as the others. Use of this site constitutes your consent to application of such laws and regulations and to our. The development of Nightfall as a new Kingdom and with it, the problems that arise takes up a big chunk of the plot, leaving little room for an intensive courtship between Trevan and Amara. Too many scenes on how to plan cities, how to build houses, how to set up central heating and not enough sparkling sensuality between Trevan and Mara. Then the ship she is on is wrecked and her sister and her are the only ones that survive. The purpose she spent her whole life preparing for. For me the second half was also much better because that's when Amara became more aware of her ill behavior towards the people on Nightfall and Trevan in particular.
I actually enjoyed this more than her military science Thoroughly enjoyable, despite being a fifth book and my first entry to the series. In each book, I learn something new about the mages, their world, and their abilities. They both want to protect the ones they care about and they both want to be loved for who they are, not for what they can do. The friction between Kelly and Amara was hilarious. But can he be trusted with her most fiercely guarded secret? For his work, he is highly regarded by the physicians and staff at Steere House and by the families of the residents whom he serves. Can she truly trust him with her most shielded secret? Like in the previous parts of the series the world-building is extensive. It takes a few days for Amara to become more civil and trusting to the Nightfallers, and she does bump heads with Kelly more than once, but Trevan understands her.
But can he be trusted with her most fiercely guarded secret? She may be fierce, proud, and from a different culture, but after all, he is the Cat, and none but the most fascinating and challenging of women could satisfy him? He is happy that his Bride is also a shape shifter, as he enjoys flying, and his second brother Wolfer is afraid of heights, and prefers the Wolf shape, while Trevan is of course the Cat. She is on the run with her sister from mages who covet what she protects. I liked this one the least so far. Her world building and characters are great and she knows how to make a magical fantasy world come to life with her writing skills. This is Trevan's story-he is determined to try to win over pretty, prickly Amara of the Shifterai and as a whole their story was humorous, a battle of wills and encompassed all the element Having never heard of Jean Johnson found in my hand a copy of The Sword and from the very first book new I had to keep on reading this fresh new series of 8 hunky mage brothers with all the enchantments, magical elements, whimsy, great romance and adventures all in a wonderful fantasy mix of great individual stories. Revan is just perfect as a friend, lover and Cat. In fact, he's a little too eager.
I get she's trying to protect her sister and all but she was way too much in certain situations. She may be fierce, proud, and from a different culture, but he is the Cat, and none but the most fascinating and challenging of women could satisfy him. My lack of much compassion for the bride left a taste of disappointment in my mouth and affected the quality of the romance. Used textbooks do not come with supplemental materials. Review New in the national bestselling Sons of Destiny series, hailed by Jayne Ann Krentz as awildly entertaining. © 2013 Reviews by Aurian Full review on my blog, It was ok, but way too much detail all at once. Of course, it would help if she stood still long enough for him to court her properly.
Two twin sister wash up on the island, and Trevan just assumes one is for him. The Cat lost a star from me because I really didn't like the heroine, Amara, but in all fairness, I wasn't really supposed to. What if the standing stones and stone circles across the old Celtic world had a secret origin and use? That is because these two books mirror each other. Jean Johnson continues her Sons of Destiny series with this fifth book about the fifth son of eight, Trevon, who has waited years for his turn to find his prophesied bride. He and Koranen have tried to come up with a solution for their celibacy but are failing at it.
Objects than can be enchanted for a special purpose, and also look pretty. I wish there would be more emphasis on the couples and less on political matters. She needs a major attitude adjustment, more than Dominor needed his. I cannot wait to see how the dark and mysterious twin finds love and hopefully better manners. In the end, yes it all worked out but still, it was very annoying when I wanted to give her a good spanking the entire book. Yet there is something about the mage Trevan of Nightfall that Amara can? He is interested in her as a woman, and not in her political power or status as a Shifterai Princess and future Queen.
