When Destiny McCree wakes up beside a dead man on an Oregon beach, she knows only this: she has to keep moving, keep searching and keep one step ahead of the forces that have been pursuing her from the heart of Scotland to this isolated spot. Why? The death of her lover has left her alone, with little memory of her past. A glimmering serpent-shaped ring is the one clue she has - and a bargaining chip in a most dangerous game .
Enter Trae Wilson, a master thief with a sexy, knowing grin and a secret agenda of his own. Destiny and Trae both have powers far beyond human - and both are running for their lives. Together they're riding a tide of danger, magic and lust ... but with killers stalking their every move, they must use any means necessary even each other, to survive - until the shocking secret of one woman's destiny finally unravels.
When I first bought the book, I really had no clue as to what the book was about. A few pages through the book and I was like "I know what she is !!!", but the truth was something I really could not guess like ever! I'm trying not to tell you guys what she is, cause it's probably going to be a big surprise.
The plot was good and the writing although not exceptional was ok. It would have been more suspense filled if the author revealed who Destiny was a little later in the book, because the whole 'I'm a ...' seemed a little too rushed. Other than that the story line was pretty good and the characters were entertaining and I plan on reading book two in the series as well.
She was a really interesting character, with her big eyes and really big feet. I was kind of weirded out by that and naturally I thought that she was a ... . But I was wrong, like big time wrong. She was a fun loving character who showed that she could keep a clear head in times of distress and was ready to embrace the good even when the majority of the atmosphere was blanketed in dark.
He was good to read in terms of the book, however his charcter lacked the depth that could have been given to him as more emphasis was given to Destiny. No doubt his sexy bad boy image was projected, I just hated the fact that all he wanted was a big family with lots of kids and blah blah blah that made him seem like such a sexist pig.
Although my review had splotches of negativity here and there I am pretty sure I will read the next book, hoping that Trae is not in it.
Rating: 2 and a 1/2 stars
