"When Destiny and Desire Collide!"
Down deep in the dungeon of the fortress Kindred, the
Dark Chieftain is held in chains. An evil sorcerer
him hoping to gain the information he needs for his own
salvation. Meanwhile Bryna, a slave, plots to free the
Chieftain at the guidance of her blind teacher, Derina.
Guiding Tynan through the secret fey caves, Bryna
succeeds in leading the Chieftain to freedom and assumes
with her job completed she will return to her duties as
slave to the Roman leader at the fortress Kindred. What
does not realize is that her fate is woven with that of
Dark Chieftain. For she may be the Territorial Goddess
prophesied to return balance and hope back to Tynan's
people and restoring their bond with the fey world.
Bryna is not so quick to follow Tynan, as she has never
known her self to be more than just a slave at Kindred.
only memories are those of being found at a young age on
the shores of an ancient loch by her teacher. Other than
that her world revolves around the blatant disregard of a
roman leader who calls her 'witch eyes' and the kind
teachings given to her by Derina.
World's collide and the plot twists as Bryna chooses to
trade her life as a slave for that of mate to the Dark
Chieftain who has marked her as his. And as their
relationship begins to blossom, so too, does Bryna's life
as her real destiny and heritage begin to unfold.
Unfortunately, Tynan still struggles with the frustration
of a prophecy that chooses a faery mate for him. A
his father blatantly disregarded by marrying a human and
destroying the bond between his people and the fey.
Predestined is a magnificent book that kept me turning
pages to find out what could possibly challenge these
characters more? I enjoyed Ms. Gray's use of sensuality
driving Tynan relentlessly to fulfill the prophecy. The
world she has created is magical with strong secondary
characters and villains that come in many different forms.
Ms. Gray excels at taking a fascinating prophecy and
energizing it with dynamics of different mystical cultures
and beliefs. I definitely recommend PREDESTINED as a
fantastic fantasy read!
