The Series so far:
I really enjoyed this story. Plenty of romance, humor, intense love scenes, and a unique plot. I loved the fact that both the hero and heroine were strong, independent, and intelligent... but accepted that they needed each other. When it was clear that one was stronger in a certain way, the other was willing to defer without resentment. All together, these things made the total story a true delight.
The reason this was a 4 Star rating, instead of a 5 Star, was the fact that I had to skim through a lot of pages. Jean Johnson has a terrific imagination. Unfortunately, she was far too thorough in explaining how certain magic spells worked, why certain types of magic were or were not possible, how some types of magic differ from others, how one country's traditions contrast with that of another... It was much more info than was necessary for the story. 2- 3 pages could be filled with the heroine explaining a single spell to the hero. It destroyed the mysticism that magic can give a story, making it entirely too clinical and draining my ability to let my own imagination sore while reading.
Dominor has been kidnapped from Nightfall Island. When his kidnappers are captured and sold into slavery by their enemies, Dominor is sold as well.
Serina is one of the most powerful Mages in the land. She needs a male Mage to help her complete a spell that will end a long war between rival countries. Noticing that Dominor's captors had to use 5 spell- blocking shackles to disable his magic, she realizes that he is a very gifted Mage. She gladly pays a high price to win ownership of him at the slave auction. Detesting slavery in general, she plans to have him help her with the war spell, then she will set him free.
Dominor quickly becomes interested Serina. Many things about her suggest to him that she may be his Destiny. He is more than ready to fall in love and find happiness. Over the next couple months of working side by side, Dominor and Serina learn that they enjoy leaning on one anothers strengths. There is a secret Serina is keeping from Dominor. The spell requires Serina to become pregnant by him. She is afraid he will not want to be a father. Little does she know, it is one of things he will come to want most.
Overall, my favorite of the first three books in the series. As always, Johnson has given us a great lead into future editions. We received hints for both Evanor's and Rydan's stories. Once again, I'm finding myself watching for the next in the series.
Anyway, I would definitely recommend this book to fantasy-romance lovers. Very very intriguing and I look forward to reading the rest of the books.
