An exciting story with action, suspense, humor, good vs. evil, and a good dose of steam. Mira has a painful background and doesn't let anyone get close. Kagan is supposed to protect her. The fate of the world hangs in the balance. Yet there is an attraction between them that they can't deny. And I can't forget about his friends. If you like buff, protective, alpha males this book has plenty of them. Not to mention foreign expletives and Italian endearments. A fun, exciting read. Definitely looki ...more

This was the perfect read for a summer day. Short and sweet, this had the perfect balance between story and steam. That said, this novella was super sexy and made me want to go dancing. I look forward to reading more from this series.
Right after reading the description of Seal of Destiny I knew I wanted to read it. Y’all know how I love a way out there paranormal romance. I have read angel books, demon books, even books with God and the devil as buddies. This is my first with a Scion character which is a little different from all the above. I am still a little fuzzy on how the Scion came to be, but more on that a little later.

The following review is my opinion and not a paid review. I was given a free copy of the book for my honest opinion.

Mira Herald grew up in an orphanage and foster homes where life was not good to her at all. Someone was always physically and mentally abusing her. Mira ran away from that life at the age of sixteen with her best friend Zoe. She promised herself that no one would ever hurt her or anyone she cared about ever again. Mira kept that promise to herself too. Mira is not like a lot of her

Ok, I was not exactly sure what to expect from this book, but was pleasantly surprised that I loved it. I warn you, it is very much an adult book, has explicit sex scenes in it, which I was not expecting, but it was tastefully done, and was not the focus of the story, which is good, in my opinion anyway.

There is plenty of excitement and twist in this story. It was really well written too. I found I really liked Kagan, and did like Mira too. I was a little uncomfortable when it was revealed about

I love how this book starts. The scene has overtures of anger and aggression, while whisperings of past sins and abuses tickle your consciousness, begging to know more. What happened to her? What will happen? It is a perfect hook.

Though the author doesn't put a lot of effort into any of the characters but Mira, all the characters bring something to the table. I liked how cheeky Kaden was and Wyck's playful, childlike demeanor was endearing. Wyck's food obsession, though it seemed to come out of
Great start to a promising series. From the beginning the story moves at a brisk pace and pulls you along. The main characters, Mira and Kagan, are both strong and interesting. Each has to deal with their own past issues while coming together to face the threat that is looming.

Kagan understands the threat and is there to keep Mira safe and keep the Seal from getting into the wrong hands. Mira on the other hand is forced into this position. Watching her learn to trust Kagan and watching Kagan a

Seal of Destiny plunges you into a dark, gritty world full of danger, drama, and – yay! – powerful, sexy warriors. If, like Mira, you found yourself caught up in an impending apocalypse, the Scion are definitely who you’d want to turn to for help. In Kagan and the other Scion, Traci Douglass has created characters with formidable powers, but enough flaws to make things complicated. As in all the best stories, the chemistry between Mira and Kagan is irresistible, even as they’re denying it – and ...more

Seal of Destiny is a fast-paced, action packed read that kept me flipping pages far too late at night! Not only is Mira sexy, sassy, and tough, she's also the bearer of the seal that has the power to set the apocalypse in motion. Kagan is all alpha, sexy as sin, and a warrior who will do whatever it takes to keep his girl safe. *Happy sigh.* The story was complex with a cast of interesting secondary characters I'm really looking forward to reading more about in future books.

Gotta love a fun paranormal, don't you? I thoroughly enjoyed this one and can't wait to read the next.

The characters were likeable, and in the case of the Scions, larger than life and yummy to boot. The wicked were truly wicked, deliciously so. Stylish and elegant Divinity, strutting around like a high powered corporate head in her hot heels was fab darling, totally fab.

With love scenes and sexual tension sizzling between the hero and feisty heroine, how can't I recommend this? Pick it up. You

It wasn't terrible but I did find myself having to go back and reread parts because I was easily distracted and kind of bored with the story.

Scion's Destiny is the first book in the Seven Seals series. In this one, we meet Kagan, who has looked after the host of the First Seal for eons. The trouble is, not only does he concern himself over the current host, but he is also getting bored and wants to visit earth. A summons comes, and he arrives on earth, only to find out it wasn't Divinity who summoned him, but the host.

This is a nice, relaxing read, with no particular angst and an easy enough plot to follow. Although this story focuse

One thing I'll mention first about this read was I loved the diversity, linguistic and cultural; we have some Italian, some Greek words/phrases showing up, so there's some cultural diversity to this novel and I loved it. It was especially fun since I got what they meant, I'm cool with Italian and the Greek phrases I'd heard before as well :D Fun.

Now, the world of this read was very interesting. As you well know, I don't like faith eleme

Mira Herald lives in Chicago and works at a bar called the G-Spot. She looks like every pretty girl, but Mira knows there is something different about her. She’s recovering from an abusive relationship with her cheating ex boyfriend Argus, and praying for revenge.

Kagan is the hunky, Scion who hears Mira’s silent call and appears at the bar, much to her surprise. After a somewhat awkward introduction, he announces, “I am yours to command.” Mira grudgingly accepts his offer of protection, while i

Fans of the paranormal will find themselves on the edge of their seats from the first page turned to the last. Using many biblical references, the framework for what promises to be an exciting series featuring sexy heroes and strong-willed heroines gets underway in a satisfying, yet slightly murky, style.

After finishing this story it's the heroes that left me breathless and are still on my mind. I never quite understood what they are or how they came about and really don't care as they oozed sex

Mira Herald has had a rough life and the nightmares she has had for years are not only invading her nights, they also invade her waking hours and little does she know, but soon she will be living them. Mira and her best friend Zoe were brought up in the foster care program and each had a terrible experience. Mira has taken years of self defense training to ensure that no one will ever take advantage of her again.

Kagan is a Scion warrior who has lived for centuries, recently in the secl

The blurb says that Mira is having the worst life ever. Yeah, that sounds pretty accurate.

I'm not usually a huge fan of main characters because they usually just like to complain a lot, but I really became attached to Mira. She'd had a really rough life as a child, and things hadn't exactly been looking up since. Traded throughout uncaring foster homes and mentally and physically abused beyond compare, she's learned the hard way that people can't be trusted. Especially when someone is trying to

A different type of paranormal romance that’s packed full of action, excitement, romance and kick butt characters that any fan of the genre will surely enjoy :)

I admire Mira. She has had a very hard life, filled with trauma and has built a brutal wall around her being (and heart) to help her stay safe in all ways possible. She has one friend and only one (named Zoe). Besides her wall and her one friend, she has made sure she learned how to defend herself from any that may try to harm her or any

With a clever premise, distinct and unique characters, a strong and determined heroine, cursed immortal warriors and minions popping up everywhere, this is a super start to a series. Character introductions are distinct and well crafted, although the most energy is spent with the backstory for both Mira and Kagan, it was interesting to see a preview of the characters that I expect will be more prominent in future releases.

The interplay with Mira and Kagan, with the snarky remarks, the two butti

This book was really a great read. I’ll admit there was something about the first chapter that didn’t work for me, but once I got to chapter two I literally could not put the book down. It kept my attention the whole way through and had me on the edge of my seat waiting to learn more. I loved Mira. She was one stubborn woman, but such a believable character. I would have to say that all the characters were well thought out and defined. You got a sense of who they were throughout the book without ...more

I do like a book crammed with action, and Seal of Destiny definitely delivers that. It’s a paranormal romance apocalypse, so also offers something different from the usual stories out there. It’s got some adult sizzle in there, so I’d not recommend it to anyone under 18, but if you’re over then, enjoy!

I liked Mira and Kagan and felt that they served the book well and I’d have preferred to spend more time on them, rather than the many other characters in the book – not to say that they are not we

Seal of Destiny has an impressive cast of characters and a few surprises. Scions are deliciously handsome warriors and the hero of this story, Kagan, set the bar high. He has presence the moment he appears on the page. I love a solid alpha hero who's not a bore. Kagan's a warrior's warrior - he loves battle, he loves action. He does not like baby sitting.

Mira, the heroine, has her own issues to deal with at the start of this story, and the two are forced together, which adds to the sexual tensi

I inhale paranormal romances. They're my go-to diversion to help me unwind from the strains of reality. But lately, everything has seemed, "same story, second verse." So the premise of this book had me intrigued.

I wasn't disappointed. The characters are well-defined which is a MUST for me. The men are smokin' hot alphas, but each with distinct personalities that left me wondering what their stories will be. The heroine has both backbone and brains...also a necessity for me. Don't you hate it whe

eal of Destiny is book one in the Seven Seals Series by Traci Douglass. This book had a good mix of action, humor, and romance. Mira was a strong and confident character, even if she seemed to lack any common sense at times. Kagan was mysterious and tough and likes to use Italian exclamations repetitively. The idea that the seven seals are hidden within people is an idea I hadn't heard before. It was intriguing, and made for some intense action within the stor

You can tell from the first scene that Mira's got kick-ass down to a science. She's not going to make it easy for anybody to get close to her, but she's so worth it for the right man. And Kagan's in for a serious surprise when he meets her. She's a lot more than just an assignment, and he's woefully unprepared for the way his body responds to her.
Heh. The poor guy...

With book one in the Seven Seals series, Ms. Douglass catapults us into a world full of imagination, terror, passion and hurt. Mira is solid, strong and capable – a woman full of pain who has no need of anyone, least of all a protector, and yet…. For his part, Kagan, immortal Scion warrior, has no need of entanglements and precious little enthusiasm left to do the work he is destined to do, and yet…. And yet they are thrust together, forced to face the evil that threatens not just themselves, bu ...more

Seal of Destiny, Traci Douglass’ debut novel in her Seven Seals series, is a roller-coaster ride of action and romance. Mira, the unwitting host of the first Seal, is a feisty, fearless heroine unwillingly swept up into the war between good and evil. Kagan, a member of the sexy, supernatural Scions directed by Divinity, is sent to protect her—no easy task. Mira isn’t exactly compliant. Holding goals of their own, Nephilim search for her too. And hell isn’t about to let the Seal go without a figh ...more

First, I would like to thank the author Traci Douglass for giving me this book for an honest review. This book is action packed with the possibility of the apocalypse. It was really well written, the story building was great. I like both Kagan and Mira, both were very strong characters. I also like that most all the secondary characters had good back-stories about them. It pretty much set them up for more to come in the series for them. I am really looking forward to reading more of this series.

Traci Douglass gives a hot new twist to the battle between good and evil with Seal of Destiny! The story is fast paced and full of turns you didn't see coming, while adding a delicious mix of sizzling chemistry between Mira and her divine protector, Kagan. And if you think Kagan is hot, wait 'til you meet his friends! Not only is this a book I'll read again and again, I'm beyond thrilled that there are six more in the series, all of which I can't wait to read!
