Destiny Bewitched (Shadows of Destiny, #4)Destiny Bewitched by Leia Shaw

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is one of those surprises I occasionally get when I read a book that I expected to be mundane or boring and find it to be enthralling and addictive. Destiny Bewitched by Leia Shaw was a thrill ride almost form page one, it starts with a bang and then becomes a struggle to free Samantha’s sister with the help of a less than enthusiastic support of a “demon” (a term he denies many times) named Geo. This book brings many similarities to one of my all time favorite books by a young Patricia Briggs called The Hob's Bargain so I may be a bit biased since I still have fond memories of that book long before I became addicted to PNR/UF. As many fantasy novels this one has an epic struggle and the unlikely pair become inseparable and about 50% through the book it starts getting a bit more erotic and steamy. Make no mistake, this is a romance with an action novel background and follows a theme I see a lot these days of “What would I sacrifice for the one I love” and the answer is always “anything’. Instead of me droning on with teasers and tidbits of the story, let me just say if you like impossible odds, red hot passion, a heartfelt romance and an ending you will remember, this is a great book. My only complaint now is that I already had dozens of books (well more like hundreds) to read and now I have to go get the other books in this series (Shadows of Destiny)
since I need to read at least one of the preceding books and the sequel to this one is already setup at the end of this one. This is 4+ Star reading and one that will leave you feeling good at the end. Highly recommended …. could have easily rounded it up to 5 Stars
