"disappointed with end of trilogy - little focus on love and romance"

I read DESTINY last week and was really disappointed with it, especially since I loved the first two. The most disappointing aspect was that there seemed to be relatively little focus on love and romance. There was so much switching from time to time, and so many murders and attempted murders that there wasn't room for it. Also, I hate paranormals where powers conveniently come and go for the sake of the plot, and when there are many lapses in common sense just to drive the plot. I was comparing it to a slasher film in my mind when I read it. The characters do stupid things that just happen to put them in the way of a knife, and that's pretty much the whole story, except for one delicious sexual interlude back in Sumeria.

2002 RITA Finalist

Return to the rich, sensual, and bewitching world that Maggie Shayne created in the bestselling Eternity and Infinity...

She is Nidaba--an immortal High Witch so ancient, so legendary, that for thousands of years she has been the ultimate prize, relentlessly pursued by Dark Witches. She has eluded all who would kill her...until a mother's grief makes her reckless and she is captured by a madman. After endless physical and mental torment, she escapes, but her captivity has damaged her spirt as well as her body. And though the wounds to her body have healed, the scars on her mind and soul remain...

After more than four thousand years, her destiny has finally found her...

Nathan King now has the peace he craved in the life he created for himself--until he sees her again. Can it really be Nidaba--the love he thought lost to him some many centuries ago? But the woman he finds is not the fierce, proud girl of his cherished memories--now her eyes are haunted by a pain so deep, and a hatred so bitter it divides them still. But if he is to understand the source of her anguish and reclaim the passion that was once theirs, he must face the truth that the evil that tore them apart once again stands between them and their chance at forever...
