The Master by Jean Johnson


Eight brothers, born in four sets of twins, two years apart to the day-they fulfill the Curse of Eight Prophecy. To avoid tempting their destiny, the brothers are exiled to the Isle of Nightfall, where women are forbidden. But when the abducted third-born brother is taken by a powerful and beautiful mage, he wonders if she is his own Prophesied Disaster, his foretold wife-to-be

Kidnapped from the Isle of Nightfall, taken captive by slavers, Dominor is sold to a lovely mage, who promises freedom. But Lady Serina has plans for him; she needs another powerful mage to re-enact a mating ritual, to help reverse a Tantric spell cast centuries ago. Agreeing to help her, Dominor doesn’t suspect the secret she holds back from him: there is more to this magical mating than the Arithmancer has revealed.

Once the ritual is complete, he will be returned to Nightfall. But when that secret finally shatters, baring the truth behind the misunderstandings now separating them, Dominor is determined to retake possession of the woman who is his Destiny.
This was a very good book. I am quite happy that I have started the Son's of Destiny series by Jean Johnson. This book dealt mostly with Dominor, not his brothers. The book also revealed a few interesting facts about Ryaden and they make me want to read his story, The Storm, even more! You also read about Serina's friend Mariel, who we will read more about in the next book, The Song.

Me again. Any idea what you RSS feed is? I am switching readers and this one is having an issue.
