Overview

Griffin's Destiny concludes the epic tale of love’s triumph over evil begun in Griffin's Daughter and continued in Griffin's Shadow.

Jelena has found acceptance and love among the elves, but war, a sweeping pestilence, and the death of her beloved leave her desolate. Unaware Ashinji still lives, she seeks comfort in the arms of a young soldier determined to marry her.

Knowing Jelena’s life is in peril, Ashinji continues his desperate trek homeward. Racing against time, and chased by murderous slave hunters, he and his companions are out-matched until Ashinji breaks the bonds preventing him from tapping his own extraordinary magical power.

As their world teeters on the brink of destruction, Jelena, Ashinji, and their allies must make desperate choices and risk all to save everything they know and love.

    don't buy!!!!

    I'd give this book no stars if I could! What a disappointment! I bought and read this book and the second one ONLY because I wanted to find out what happens and the author pretty much skipped over how the Nameless One dies! So much random stuff in the beginning and then skips to a happy ending. As if that wasn't bad enough, Jelena decides to marry some soldier she hardly knows because she's afraid to be alone and raise a daughter by herself. Hello, you're a Princess, as if you'd be raising the kid by yourself? I don't expect anyone to stay single after their spouse "dies" but really? It hadn't even been a year and she moves on already? What a waste of my time and money! There's a happy ending so don't waste your time reading this book!
