There are very few days off when you’re on an epic quest. Believe me, I know. I’m Hedi Peacock—one half Fae, the other were—and if being a half-breed with one foot in each world isn’t tough enough to manage, there are the four chambers of my heart to consider. The one who holds the strings? Robson Trowbridge, the Alpha of Creemore. If I had my way, he and I would be locked in a bedroom, for eternity, but a pressing family matter needs my attention. It’s true what they say: A woman’s work is never done.


My twin brother is being held captive by the Old Mage in another realm. Lo and behold, as soon as Trowbridge and I arrive in Merenwyn, we’re separated in spectacular, dramatic fashion—and I’m left to figure out how to maintain the fragile balance between my Fae magic and my wolf’s blood in a realm that cries to both. Not easy, particularly when I'm keeping an iron-grip on my temper so as not to dispatch with extreme prejudice the odd wizard or smart-mouthed mutt servant who crosses my path. My mama never told me there’d be days like these, but I’m not going down without a fight…or my mate.

THE DANGER OF DESTINY is by far and above my favorite of the Mystwalker books. We FINALLY get to see our hero and heroine work together instead of apart, and Heidi accepts all parts of her and owns who and what she was born as. It was extremely refreshing to see after the previous three books had her unsure of herself and her place in the world.

While this story picks up (kind of) just hours after the previous story left off, there is still enough back story sprinkled in so I wasn’t totally lost. But if you are one of those people who likes to wait until a series has a conclusion, there isn’t SO MUCH back story sprinkled in that it gets old. These would be great books to binge on.

DESTINY takes place mostly in the Fae realm, and is the only book to do so. Not only are there new challenges – they speak another language – but there are new/old enemies and a totally unfamiliar terrain and culture as well. Heidi up until now just cannot catch a break … other than snagging Trowbridge as her mate! And it really is a good thing too, he makes a fantastic and sexy guide through the forest.

I don’t want to say too much, because this is the best series you have never heard of, and while this is a review for the last book in it, I don’t want to give away any more from the previous books! Give it a shot, and let me know what you think!

About Leigh Evans

Leigh Evans was born in Montreal, Quebec but now lives in Southern Ontario with her husband. She’s raised two kids, mothered three dogs, and herded a few cats. Other than that, her life was fairly routine until she hit middle-age. Some women get tattoos. Leigh decided to write a book about a half-Fae, half-Were girl who’s a magnet for trouble. The first Mystwalker novel was released as THE TROUBLE WITH FATE in 2012. Second and third books have quickly followed: THE THING ABOUT WERES and THE PROBLEM WITH PROMISES. At the age most people start thinking about retirement, Leigh’s found her career slinging words and pummeling plots. A little tardy, but then again, her mum always said she was a late bloomer.
