Overview

Love conquers all . . . but can it stop the Apocalypse?

Mira Herald is having the worst life ever. Not only is she plagued by horrific nightmares starring the Devil himself, she's now the target of a power-hungry, rogue minion, freshly sprung from Hell and bent on her destruction. To complicate matters further, she's acquired a stalker. One who insists he's a divine warrior sent for her protection because she houses an ancient relic with the power to unleash Armageddon. Last time Mira checked, she wasn't insane. Still, all this celestial mayhem is enough to drive a girl crazy.

Kagan is a member of the Scion, an elite team of immortal warriors selected by Divinity to aid mankind and save the world. After a century alone, Kagan is summoned for a new mission. He's eager to begin. Eager until he's informed his mission consists of protecting a woman with no clue to the power she wields. Plus, his briefing fails to prepare him for his new target's cosmic-sized attitude problem. As Divinity's sworn servant, he's required to fulfill his duty. His oath, however, does not require him to be enthusiastic about his new assignment or warm-and-fuzzy toward his new compatriot. He plans a wham-bam rescue and a quick return to solitude.

The minion attacks - with the backing of a mysterious organization - and all Hades erupts, putting a fast end to any whirlwind escapes. Accustomed to staunch independence, Mira's survival now requires full cooperation and an unwavering belief in Kagan. The battle-hardened warrior is also forced to chose: between duty and desire. Amidst the turmoil, Kagan and Mira's undeniable passion draws them closer to each other and down a path neither expected but both yearn for, more than they ever knew.

Will love save the day? The world's fate depends on the answer.

    Seal of Destiny is an action-packed, impending Apocalypse story

    Seal of Destiny is an action-packed, impending Apocalypse story that introduces us to Mira and Kagan. Mira life sucks, her nights consists of nightmares, she has a stalker, oh and did I mention the minion from hell that wants to kill her? In waltz Kagan, her reluctant protector, who likes to say his dirty words in Italian, which he seems to use a lot around her. Kagan was sent to protect Mira and keep the world from being tossed into Armageddon. Mira and Kagan are constantly yelling at each other and fighting like cats and dogs, but under all of that is a passion that would scorch even the sun. Both try to deny it, but each cannot seem to stop the flames from burning brighter and stronger. Love, Minions, and the end of the world? Who could ask for more?

    Traci Douglass has an expert hand at writing about fiery couples that are complete opposites. They chemistry between Mira and Kagan is so strong, so poignant, that smokes seems to be furling from the pages. The snarky comments and killer comebacks (even if they are in Italian) make for off the wall humor and interesting foreign vocabulary lessons! Add in a dash of evil villains of the very first dynasty, their minions, and a huge dose of Armageddon and you have yourself a very entertaining story and the start of a very promising new series!

    I love how this book starts.  The scene has overtures of anger and aggression, while whisperings of past sins and abuses tickle your consciousness, begging to know more.  What happened to her?  What will happen?  It is a perfect hook.




    Though the author doesn't put a lot of effort into any of the characters but Mira, all the characters bring something to the table.  I liked how cheeky Kaden was and Wyck's playful, childlike demeanor was endearing.  Wyck's food obsession, though it seemed to come out of nowhere, was cute.  It made me chuckle as he raced off like a little boy in a toy store.  Chago has some potential and I would be intrigued to see what he'd be like if he ever opened up.  Xander and Zoe are mysteries just waiting to be discovered.












    Mira, the main character, is both the most complex and the most challenging of the bunch.  She presents a puzzle at first.  Later, she fights and claws to get away, making you work to like her and, at the same time, making it impossible not to be drawn in by her.








    The book is non-stop, with one fiasco after another, keeping you on the edge of your seat the whole time.  Full of action and suspense, mystery and intrigue, battles of good and evil, angels, demons, and nephilim, this book has it all.

    With book one in the Seven Seals series, Ms. Douglass catapults

    With book one in the Seven Seals series, Ms. Douglass catapults us into a world full of imagination, terror, passion and hurt. Mira is solid, strong and capable – a woman full of pain who has no need of anyone, least of all a protector, and yet….  For his part, Kagan, immortal Scion warrior, has no need of entanglements and precious little enthusiasm left to do the work he is destined to do, and yet…. And yet they are thrust together, forced to face the evil that threatens not just themselves, but all of humanity. The pace is fast from beginning to end, and while it ends well, we can see that trouble still lurks on the horizon. This is a good story, and I look forward to reading the next installment – Seal of Surrender (May 6, Crimson Romance). Well done. 




    I purchased this book online and have given this review freely and without monetary compensation.

    The blurb says that Mira is having the worst life ever. Yeah, that sounds pretty accurate.

    I'm not usually a huge fan of the main character because they usually just like to complain a lot, but I really became attached to Mira. She'd had a really rough life as a child, and things hadn't exactly been looking up since. Traded throughout uncaring foster homes and mentally and physically abused beyond compare, she's learned the hard way that people can't be trusted. Especially when someone is trying to convince her that he was "selected by God to serve as her immortal bad***."

    You can probably guess that that was my favorite quote.

    My favorite part of Seal of Destiny was definitely all of the characters. There were so many of them all together, but I really appreciate that they didn't all blend into a glob of figureheads to move the story along. Each of them had their own personalities and backstories, so it was really interesting to read the parts of the novel tilted more towards their perspectives.

    Another helpful thing with most of the characters being Scions (those are the "immortal bad***es") is that they're immortal. Nothing annoys me more than when my favorite secondary characters are killed off just for the fun of it, but luckily I don't have to worry about that here. No matter how many times people like Chay and Wyck get shot or stabbed or whatever else may happen to them, they can't die on me! Yay!

    There was one pet peeve I did have with this book, however, and that was all of the colloquialisms. I love Wyck dearly and all, but I swear, if he had said "bollocks" one more time, I was probably going to start regretting the fact that he couldn't die.

    Gotta love a fun paranormal, don't you? I thoroughly enjoyed this one and can't wait to read the next.

    The characters were likeable, and in the case of the Scions, larger than life and yummy to boot. The wicked were truly wicked, deliciously so. Stylish and elegant Divinity, strutting around like a high powered corporate head in her hot heels was fab darling, totally fab.

    With love scenes and sexual tension sizzling between the hero and feisty heroine, how can't I recommend this? Pick it up. You'll love it.
    I received an ARC of this story from the author in exchange for an honest review.

    Exciting Action Scenes & Delecetable Heroes in. Delightful Series Starter

    Fans of the paranormal will find themselves on the edge of their seats from the first page turned to the last. Using many biblical references, the framework for what promises to be an exciting series featuring sexy heroes and strong-willed heroines gets underway in a satisfying, yet slightly murky, style.

    After finishing this story it's the heroes that left me breathless and are still on my mind. I never quite understood what they are or how they came about and really don't care as they oozed sex appeal. One after another of the Scions were introduced and I fell in lust with each and every one of them and their distinctly desirable personalities and to drool for looks! First up is Kagan with his tendency to speak random bits of Italian that added to his sex appeal. He respected Mira's ability to take care of herself and had her fight alongside him but still showed an overwhelming desire to protect her and would give up his very life to keep her alive. He was attracted to her quickly but it was a slow and sensual build-up to their first sexual interlude. There was lots of flirting and sexual tension that made for lots of flirty and playful verbal banter that brought a smile to my face.

    Mira had a very traumatic upbringing where she was abused in many different ways by villainous men which has led to her being cautious of men to the point of disliking them. She's trained herself to be a strong fighter which she ably demonstrates throughout the story. Kagan makes her nervous at first but she soon finds herself being won over by his charms. She's no wallflower and verbally spars with him throughout the story which I found fun. It showed them as equals where they're comfortable with each other to playful flirt in this manner. They were a delightful couple with sexual encounters that were hot and immensely satisfying and their HEA was richly deserved after all the pain they went through.

    Many of the secondary characters left a lasting impression with me too. The other Scion warriors...Wyck, Chago, Barron, and especially Xander, were like pinup models...each one sexier than the next. Each has a bit of mystery surrounding them and in this story it's Xander who joins Kagan in the spotlight. Xander's past has been one of pain where his mate is lost to him and the physical pain of being psychic has returned. I’m already in love with him and can't wait to learn more about him. Zoe is Mira's friend and has a big role in this story as well. Her upbringing was equally traumatic and with her own psychic abilities you can sense an unwilling connection between her and Xander and I look forward to their journey towards a HEA.

    While the mythos of this story was confusing and the collaboration between Lucifer and Divinity complicated, it's the characters that completely won me over. The Scion warriors are everything you want a hero to be. The heroines were likable and admirably strong-willed and never faded into the shadows. The action scenes went at a break neck pace that kept you on the edge of your seat in anticipation of what was coming next and ultimately led to a immensely satisfying conclusion. Here's to Traci Douglass and the promise of great things to come in this exciting new series!

    I give this 4.5 Stars!

    Seal of Destiny has an impressive cast of characters and a few

    Seal of Destiny has an impressive cast of characters and a few surprises. Scions are deliciously handsome warriors and the hero of this story, Kagan, set the bar high. He has presence the moment he appears on the page. I love a solid alpha hero who's not a bore. Kagan's a warrior's warrior - he loves battle, he loves action. He does not like baby sitting.

    Mira, the heroine, has her own issues to deal with at the start of this story, and the two are forced together, which adds to the sexual tension.

    As the other Scions make an appearance, and the villain does his part, the story fleshes out, but this might be where I became a little overwhelmed. When a story has a lot of characters moving around I find it difficult to track who is who. I wanted to spend most of my time with Kagan and Mira.

    The subplots hint to a much larger universe planned for this book/series. That's great because I adore the Scions and the seals plot line. I'm going to pick up the next book.

    I inhale paranormal romances.  They're my go-to diversion to help me unwind from the strains of reality.  But lately, everything has seemed, "same story, second verse."  So the premise of this book had me intrigued.

    I wasn't disappointed.  The characters are well-defined which is a MUST for me.  The men are smokin' hot alphas, but each with distinct personalities that left me wondering what their stories will be.  The heroine has both backbone and brains...also a necessity for me.  Don't you hate it when the heroine repeatedly does one stupid thing after another?  Mira won't do that to you.  (Thank God.). And the villain...you'll love to hate.

    Equally enjoyable was the FRESH plot and concept.  If you're hooked on paranormals like I am and the promise of a good series, I'd recommend you pick this one up.

    The first seal is dangerously close to being broken and in this

    The first seal is dangerously close to being broken and in this spine tingling and mesmerizing romance. The author has created a fantastic and intriguing world with strong captivating characters with her own refreshingly different elements to spice things up.  While there were a couple of small inconsistencies in the story, they were minor and easily ignored amongst all the drama and suspense. Overall the story was enjoyable and entertaining and I can’t wait to read the next one.

    Great start to a promising series. From the beginning the story moves at a brisk pace and pulls you along. The main characters, Mira and Kagan, are both strong and interesting. Each has to deal with their own past issues while coming together to face the threat that is looming.

    Kagan understands the threat and is there to keep Mira safe and keep the Seal from getting into the wrong hands. Mira on the other hand is forced into this position. Watching her learn to trust Kagan and watching Kagan adjust to this being more than just a job makes the story fun and entertaining.

    The characters are well developed and interesting. Not just the main characters but the secondaries as well and I am looking forward to reading their stories. The background story about the coming Apocalypse the Scions are trying to keep from occuring is interesting and lends a great backdrop to future stories as well.

    I highly recommend this to anyone that loves paranormal romance with a dose of action. Dont miss it, you want to be ready for the next story as soon as it comes out.

    Seal of Destiny is book one in the Seven Seals Series by Traci D

    Seal of Destiny is book one in the Seven Seals Series by Traci Douglass. This book had a good mix of action, humor, and romance. Mira was a strong and confident character, even if she seemed to lack any common sense at times. Kagan was mysterious and tough and likes to use Italian exclamations repetitively. The idea that the seven seals are hidden within people is an idea I hadn't heard before. It was intriguing, and made for some intense action within the story. I always love originality in books. It's hard to find. Sometimes it seems all the good ideas are taken. Seal of Destiny was a quick and entertaining read. 
    Seal of Destiny by Traci Douglass was provided to me by Bewitching Book Tours for review. The opinions are my own.
