Taran Wird, who commands the power to wield fire and lightning, is an oddity in the supernatural world. But neither Taran nor her unique sisters compare to the bizarre entity known as Destiny. And Taran is assigned to protect her.
Born of two witches, Destiny is revered among the supernatural elite for her acute ability to predict the future. Her biggest prophecy involves Taran’s sister, Celia, whom Destiny decreed will bear children strong enough to take on the evil that’s rising. Yet Destiny is not alone in her predictions, or individuality.
When Johnny Fate, a rock star among humans and a male version of Destiny is discovered, his powers and Destiny’s clash, triggering the start of Destiny’s demise and altering the fate of Celia’s unborn children.
Taran, her werewolf lover Gemini, and their allies must determine if it’s Fate who will decide what will become of Celia’s children, or if their lives and the world will perish with Destiny.
Once again Cecy Robson weaved her magical pen and created a story that took me on an emotional and action-packed adventure. The fate of the Wird’s unborn children are at stake and Taran is determined to protect their destiny.
This installment while laced with humour proved to be a darker read than the other books I read so far. The fate of the world hung in a balance. Tara and Gemini’s relationship was stable. However, amidst their stability, the world around them was in chaos. Evil wanted control, but this would prove a difficult task under the Taran and her sister’s watch. They had each other’s backs, no matter how dangerous the situation became. Danger abound, but Taran faced it head on, much to Gemini’s despair.
Taran has grown since I last saw her in Of Flame and Light. She no longer struggled with self-doubt and she had control of her arm.
The author introduced new characters into the mix which made for some interesting moments. Johnny Fate was one such character. I didn’t trust him, but I couldn’t help but feel empathy towards him.
The build up to the end was fast paced, action packed, suspenseful and mind blowing. Thank goodness there was no cliff-hanger, however the events at the end indicated that there would be more in store for the sisters.
It took me awhile to get into the story, but I gained my footing and became totally engrossed in the story and the lives of the characters.
Of Flame and Fate is a great addition to what I consider to be an exciting and thrilling series. This is a must read for fans of Urban Fantasy.
