The only magic he teaches her, is what is useful for her to know to be able to care for the illegal and deadly animals he is breading. Animals she helps him send to Nightfall Island… The only good thing in Alys life is Morganen, who is secretly helping her and teaching her when ever he can through the mirror. And so when Morganen finally tells her it is time for her to come to Nightfall Island, it is just in time, as her Uncle tells her, he has sold her to another Count, a lecherous old man with awful hygiene, and she is to leave the same day.
Alys has just perfected the magic she needs to set her own death in scene, making her uncle give her up ad death, or he will get her back. So one night, when the soldiers escorting her to her bridegroom, are getting a bit lax in their surveillance, Alys takes the opportunity to create a diversion of herself being taken away by some deathly Pookrah. She then melts a silver amulet into her skin, to sever all the spells her Uncle has laid on her.
And when that is successful this could not be practiced! Taking a Gate to the coast, she almost runs into her other Uncle in the village. After witnessing one of the whores and a client doing their thing, Alys gets a lovely education by the woman in question. She sure wants to try some of this out on Wolfer!
See a Problem?
Alys is also a shape shifter mage, like Wolfer, and she uses that to reach the Island, where she is found on the beach by Wolfer. At first he does not recognize her, as she did not have those curves when last he saw her, but he is certainly overjoyed that she is here. He never did forget her either. The enchanted lock of her hair around his wrist has managed to stay his temper more than once.
Wolfer is the second brother, a shapeshifter mage, but the wolf is not his only shape. He can also be a stallion and a raptor. When Alys arrives, he knows pretty soon that he wants to marry her, that she is his Destiny. And he sets out to court are, as Kelly has informed him of the hardships Alys had to endure at her uncles hands. But Alys does not want to take it slow, she just wants Wolfer in her bed and out of it.
And when it is found out that Alys took care of the deadly beasts they were plagued with, the brothers are not at all happy. But Morganen knew all about it, and he tells them more of her back ground. So now they know who their enemy is, and they can plan to destroy him.

If Uncle Broger does not visit Nightfall Isle first to fight them directly with his Dark magic… Being independent from Katan also means that they own the desalination plant, the salt and algae blocks it produces. They will no longer allow the merchants to take it for free, as they have been doing for decades, the merchants will have to pay for it. Of course the merchants are not happy with that, but fighting some of the most powerful mages of Katan is not an option. I enjoyed Alys, she is half timid and shy, and half courageous and brazen.
Of course she drives Wolfer crazy. Kelly sets out to teach her kung fu, so she can defend herself against her Uncle when necessary. And the brothers plan to teach her more about her magic, as she never did get an education while living with her uncle. But first they have to make some magical mirrors to scry for Dominor, who was abducted in the last book, and to fight her uncle.
And what to say about Wolfer? He is fierce, and protective, and he will do everything for his Alys. As long as she agrees to wed him over the eight altars. He is a bit jealous of the bond between Morganen and Alys, and enjoys slapping Morganen around a bit on the training grounds. Alys also wants to work to earn some money, as she has brought nothing with her.
She would like to take care of the animals, as that is what she is good in, and Kelly is all too happy to give the care of the vicious citizen-chickens over to Alys. Alys would also love some cows and a bull to have fresh milk and cheese, and perhaps some sheep for their wool. But for now, she will share Wolfer's chores with him. Stay tuned for more enthusiastic reviews about this series, as I do love those books. I would love to visit Nightfall Island.
Lots of action, magic, and hot love scenes in this second book in the series.

Schon lange plant Alys ihre Flucht und ein alter Freund von ihr, der Magier Morganen, hilft ihr dabei. Alys kennt sie seit ihrer Kindheit und hofft bei ihnen unterzukommen. Schnell wurde mir klar, dass dieses Buch Teil einer Saga ist und da ich den ersten Teil nicht gelesen habe, wurde mir schnell alles klar. Nach dem ersten Kapitel legte sich aber die Verwirrtheit wieder und wich Klarheit. Ich habe mich gut in die Geschichte gelebt.
Rein von der Handlung her fand ich das Buch recht gut. Sowohl Spannung, als auch Erotik und Liebe waren vorhanden, und auch an Humor fehlte es nicht. Mir hat es aber etwas an Beschreibung gefehlt, weshalb ich mir den Ort des Geschehens schwerer ausmalen konnte. Und nicht nur die Emotionen und Taten dieser beiden Figuren werden und vorgelegt, sondern auch anderer. Auch Wolfer und den anderen Charakter hatte Jean Johnson diesen Hauch Leben geschenkt, der sie so liebenswert und echt macht.
Sep 14, LWB Marissa rated it liked it. He who hunts is not alone When claw would strike and cut to bone A chain of Silk shall bind his hand So Wolf is caught in marriage-band" Eight mage-brothers who were born in four sets of twins, all on the same day two years apart each time, are known as the Sons of Destiny. They fulfil the Curse of the Eight Prophecies, written by the seer Draganna over a thousand years ago.
They were exciled by the Council of Mages of Katan to Nightfall Isle to prevent the fulfilment of the eight prophecies. For years Alys has been treated badly by her uncle Broger, now she has finally managed to escape him and his evil magic. She runs for shelter to her childhood friend Wolfer, the boy she fell in love with a long time ago. Only the boy is now a man, a very hot good-looking man, naturally she is most welcome to stay with him and his brothers, but she is terrified how he and his brothers will react when they discover her horrible secret All the deep feelings he had for her return in a split second and with that the strong need to protect her from her evil mage uncle, Broger.
Wolfer accepts his destiny freely, he is certain that Alys is destined to be his wife, but courting her is not so easy when pure evil is banging at the front door and disaster is bound to happen This is the second instalment in the Sons of Destiny series. Once again Jean Johnson takes you back to this wonderful and magical place that is called Nightfall Isle. In this volume the characters of the brothers are explored in depth even further and that is why you will enjoy and appreciate them more.
For example, we get a little taste of how powerful Morganen really is in comparison to his brothers, very intriguing indeed. They all have their own flaws and strong features which makes them deliciously divine. As for Alys, she is a wonderful brave young lady, she is just perfect for Wolfer.
It is interesting to read how the lives of the eight brothers are all connected with one another, how the choices and actions of one brother effects the live and well-being of another brother. The fulfilment of the first prophecy is like an avalanche, one prophecy leads to another and so on. Yet again Jean Johnson has come up with an amazing plot, her imagination has no limits. As for her dialogues, they are witty, sensual and fun to read. When did she become a woman?
To make them big, and hard, and to use them to make a woman happy by It is a great fast- paced story with a sexy hero and a charming heroine and it only makes me crave for more. These series should come with a warning: Beware, highly addictive reading material!

This book focuses on Wolfer, the second brother, and his childhood sweetheart, Alys.

To this end, he summons his second born brother's childhood sweetheart to the island. Wolfer and Alys had met as children. Alys had been friends with all the brothers, but even as children, it was clear that her bond with Wolfer was stronger. When the brothers were exiled, Alys gave Wolfer a lock of her hair which he has worn on his wrist ever since.
Sons of Destiny
Now that Saber is wed and he is willing to let women on the island, Alys is free to escape her abusive uncle's home and join Wolfer in exile. The only problem is that Alys is not willing to tell the brothers what she knows about the troubles they have had on the island since their arrival. They have been plagued by attacks of deadly spiders, snakes, dragons, and all sorts of other vicious creatures.
Alys not only knows that her uncle was responsible, she was forced to help care for these animals. Even knowing that the animals were destined for Nightfall Island, she was powerless to resist her uncle's orders to care for them. Alys is afraid that if the brothers discover this, they will not allow her to stay on the island. It will take a lot for her to convince the brothers that she did everything she could to protect them. Wolfer and Alys are a unique couple in this series because of the past that they had to their story.
It also helps to keep the involvement of the sister-in-law Kelly to a minimum. This is a good thing! Wolfer and Alys are able to convince the reader quickly that this is a continuation of a romance that was interrupted by the exile of the brothers rather than a new thing and that gave it a sweet innocent quality. In addition to the romance blossoming between Wolfer and Alys, the series continues to focus on the other events of the island. The kidnapped brother, the injured brother, the evil mages out to get the brothers, etc.
At this point in the series, this is still a pleasant diversion and it keeps the plot moving.
Sons of Destiny Series
Unfortunately, that won't always be the case My major complaint about this book is that too much is made over the fact that Alys seemed to go from brazen and confident to shy and scared in a matter of minutes. In fact, this is something that gets repeated ad nauseam throughout the series. This is a classic example of what writers should NOT do. Show us that Alys can switch from timid to brazen as circumstances warrant. Don't just tell us she does it. And, in addition, don't let her do it on every page That moves her from endearing to a little manic The knight…The Arbran diplomat Sir Zeilas must turn the Guildaran people from former enemies into allies.
But in the case of their intriguingly beautiful leader, perhaps something more intimate is in order. The mage…Gabria never expected to become a Guildaran envoy to Aurul. The pirate…Captain Ellett would do anything for his king-even hunt down the pirates plaguing the Jenodan Isles. Eight brothers, born in four sets of twins, two years apart to the day—they fulfill the Curse of Eight Prophecy. Though no longer trapped in exile, their growing family faces new problems. During their attack, an old foe resurfaces and strikes amid the confusion, kidnapping the final bride-to-be.
Either Morg will rescue Hope and help his family complete the Prophecies of the Seer Draganna and the last Duchess of Nightfall, carving a new kingdom in the process…or their enemies will be free to slaughter them all…. Koranen of Nightfall is burned out on his Curse-a destructive flame that courses beneath his flesh. How can he find a woman to endure the literal heat of his passion? But when he meets the beautiful Danau, the couple prove that fire and water always make steam. Sixth in the Sons of Destiny series from this national bestselling author.
She can see past the prickly exterior of Rydan of Nightfall, and only she can persuade him to put right what torments him before it destroys him. But Rora has her own secret…. The fifth-born son in exile, Trevan of Nightfall, needs to win over Amara of the Shifterai. How to write a great review. The review must be at least 50 characters long.
