Editorial Reviews

Scott Poe
I really enjoyed this story and I'm looking forward to more in the series. The characters are interesting and for the most part likable. There is a bit of mystery surrounding a good portion of them, but facts are slowly revealed as this story progresses and I imagine that trend will continue. At the end of the story there were still some things I was left wondering about, but I was totally happy with what had been revealed. I also enjoyed the paranormal aspect without an overwhelming romance...

    Ring of Destiny is a story about the small town of Reynald and the craziness that seems to occur there. Jared is a new kid in town and after an accident in his last town takes away his ability to excel at sports he isn't really sure where he fits in the social standing. He is an ex-jock that can't play any sports and feels a bit self conscious about walking with a limp. This keeps him kind of on the outside of everything preventing him from really forming any good friendships. There is one other boy at the school who is even further outside the social spectrum than he himself though so Jared decides to approach him.

    Jared soon learns that there is a lot of stuff going on in Reynald that can't be found elsewhere. There is a cult that protects the legacy of the town founder and seems strangely adamant that the rumors of him possessing supernatural artifacts are false. There is also a new girl in town who seems to be able to charm everyone she comes into contact with into doing whatever she wants.

    I really enjoyed this story and I'm looking forward to more in the series. The characters are interesting and for the most part likable. There is a bit of mystery surrounding a good portion of them, but facts are slowly revealed as this story progresses and I imagine that trend will continue. At the end of the story there were still some things I was left wondering about, but I was totally happy with what had been revealed. I also enjoyed the paranormal aspect without an overwhelming romance aspect. There is a bit of relationship drama involved in the story though it doesn't take it over. I know the next book is in progress and I'm looking forward to it.

    I was fortunate enough to read an advanced copy (friend of a friend, etc.). The town of Reynald promises to be an interesting place, with corn-fed Magi and secret societies! It is a place where a long-dead frontiersman buried a number of powerful, magical artifacts before his death and everyone and everything supernatural comes looking for them.

    I enjoy the small town characters. The vampire is deliciously evil and vulnerable, and I appreciate the lack of brooding on her part. Jared (the new kid in town) and Sheridan (the Holmesian style paranormal detective) make an interesting pair. There is a procedural element to the story, but it is not a mystery. I find that refreshing in a fantasy. Charlotte rounds out the trio of main characters, and I look forward to reading more of her story as the only girl of color in a small white town.

    I assume that each book will have a standalone story, but that the characters maintain continuity throughout. I look forward to reading the next adventure. It's like having a cool tv show, with HUGE breaks between episodes!
