Editorial Reviews

The Barnes & Noble Review
Magic, passion, and true love are intertwined in this romantic time-travel fantasy, the first in Jean Johnson's Sons of Destiny series. At the heart of it are eight handsome brothers, all with varying magical powers, all exiled to an island back in time. The eldest, Saber, is cursed with a prophecy: If he falls in love -- true love -- disaster will befall him and his brothers. Enter Kelly Doyle from the present, transported by the youngest mage through time from a small town where she was accused of witchcraft.

Much like the setup in Seven Brides for Seven Brothers (or, for that matter, Snow White and the Seven Dwarves), Kelly finds the castle in severe disarray. There is plenty of battle-of-the-sexes dialogue as she squares off against the brothers, trying to improve their medieval manners, clean up the castle, and generally show who is the alpha dog. Unsurprisingly, she and Saber fall for each other and give in to their passion, but is it true love or magic? And will the prophecy come true and put them all in danger? Ginger Curwen

I would recommend this book and the whole series of 8. They were so wonderful that You should buy them all so that you can go from one book to the next. If this world was a true place I would definately want to live in it. The way they take other world magic and find ways to make the simplist of things from our time into their time is amazing. If you love time travel, suspense, thrills, chills, magic, and love stories then you will definately love the twists and turns and the stories of the eight sons of Destiny. Please Purchase the series and I guarentee you wont be disappointed

This book is a wonderful precursor to the rest of the series. The characters are lively and feisty, and you really get a sense of each of the brothers as individuals. The heroine is independent, witty, and smart, and she easily holds her own in a house full of men. The added intrigue of the mysterious attacks and the prophecy make this a titilating read. Very well written and vividly described. You are transported "through the looking glass" right onto the island along with the Sons of Destiny. I highly recommend that you start here and plow right through the rest of the series, as each book sets the stage for the following.

I have to give props to Johnson for creative thinking - I think the concept for the story is very well-thought-out and fascinating. I liked reading about every one of the main characters, and I can't wait to find out what happens to them in their own stories. This was definitely a fun read, with the perfect blend of fantasy and romance... If you enjoyed Johnson's work, you might also like Jude Deveraux's "The Black Lyon."

I only brought this book because it was a "bargain book". Wow, this is the best bargain I've gotten in a very long time. I was hooked from the first word until the last word. I enjoyed the writing style and character development. The world of Nightfall Island is a world I would love to visit!!!!!
I have already ordered the remaining books of this series and can't wait until this writer has more books released.
