Destiny sucks. . . .
But that was before the fairies started demanding that Seph's frightening, unpredictable ally - the ancient vampire Menessos - be destroyed . . . or the world will suffer. Seph and Menessos are magically bonded, but that's a secret she dares not reveal to her fellow witches lest they be forced to reject her and forbid her use of magic. And, despite the strain this casts on her relationship with Johnny, as a showdown with the fairies nears, she and Menessos badly need the werewolves as allies.
Life, death, and love are all on the line, but when destiny is calling, it doesn't help to turn away. With the individual threads of their fates twisted inextricably together, can Seph, Johnny, and Menessos keep the world safe from fairy vengeance?
Persephone Alcamedi reminds me a little of the Anita Blake books, except Persephone is a witch, and Anita is a vampire hunter, oh and then there is the fact that these books are filled with sex, while there may be some sex, it's not the basis of the books, how this book reminds me of those books, is because you have a pragmatic heroine, a alpha wolf, and a master vampire. They are all tied to each other in ways that are destiny worthy, and really quite predictable. But yet, it's still keeps you intrigue to know more. This series, unleashes a world that brings in the paranormal, mythology, and fantasy all in one, and yet doesn't make it completely confusing, or utterly unbelievable. Great plot, great characters, great writing, and a whole lot more.
