Editorial Reviews

Betty Freeman
This enchanting story is skillfully woven. The author balances historic details, man's greed, and the hazards of primitive life with the same expertise as Egar juggles his six sharp knives. I love this book." Betty Freeman, former State President, California Writers Club
Carol Bachofner
"Destiny's Godchild reminds me of the historical novels I read so voraciously as a young girl. I have not seen one of this caliber surface in many years. Though it is set in a time so far removed from now, it is appealing in its universal theme which transcends time. Destiny's Godchild is a great read."
Eva LaSalle Caram
"A beautifully lucid style makes Destiny's Godchild a pleasure to read. Cleanly written, briskly paced, with an interesting central character who gives the reader an unusual slant on the history of the period." Eve LaSalle Caram, Senior Instructor, The Writers' Program UCLA Extension
JoAnn Levy
Diana Johnson's passion for medieval French history shines through on every page. Her meticulous research makes this a fresh and inventive story for readers not only of history but of fiction -- Egar the sorcerer is a winner." JoAnn Levy, Author of Daughter of Joy, a Novel of Gold Rush San Fransisco, e-mail:

    A Medieval Legendary Beginning for the House of Charlemagne.

    Destiny's Godchild combines real people from the Frankish royal court with a fictional young magician as the main character. Egar-the-Magician supplies a sense of mysticism to the story that enchants the reader. I love Arthurian stories and this is similar in style and structure.

    From Val Middler Middlebrook

    I recommend Destiny's Godchild with great enthusiasm. Diana Johnson's ability to blend history and fiction, giving the characters personalities that captivate your emotions, adds intrigue to what could otherwise be just another history book. Diana Johnson's ingenious talent reaches into the hearts and minds of the people who played such an important role in the freedom we enjoy today. Her only fictional character, Egar, will amuse and captivate you as he moves through the pages so wisely. I could hardly wait to read the sequel. Both books still linger in my mind. Val Middler Middlebrook, author of 'Val's Victory, Defeat was NEVER an Option.'
