Reviewed by Ankita Shukla for Readers' Favorite A Witch's Destiny by Leigh Ann Edwards has many dimensions to it, and each dimension is as appealing and bewitching as the previous one. Alainn and Killian are in love, but have one major difference: magic. Alainn is a witch, whereas Killian is a mortal. Nevertheless, their love is above this complication. In fact, the more complications that come their way due to Alainn's supernatural abilities, the more their love thrives. Their marriage has one major hurdle that may ruin their everlasting love. Alainn is pregnant with another man's child which she wishes to abort at the earliest opportunity. She has hidden this condition from her husband, but this has not been easy. With the help of her guardian, Danhoul, she somehow manages to conceal this truth. To add to her list of problems, a demon is following Alainn, and she is sure that the baby growing inside her womb is pure evil. Her attempts to terminate her pregnancy have been vain. With each passing moment, her patience and health are deteriorating. Despite all these troubles, she cannot rest since she has been having visions that indicate she must locate her father. So Killian, Danhoul, and others are going above and beyond to unite Alainn with her father. The seeds of Danhoul's romantic inclinations towards Alainn are explained by introducing reincarnation, which was truly interesting. Believers in this concept will have their faith restored. Alainn maintained her sense of humor in even the most difficult situations and that was what I loved about her. She did not give up, ever. When she made up her mind to do something, even the gods could not stop her. Leigh Ann Edwards has portrayed Alainn as no damsel in distress. She is distressed, but has not lost her wits. Since the primary genre of the book is fantasy, the supernatural element is always under the critical lens of the reader. Leigh Ann Edwards is aware of this fact and has not left any stone unturned in using magic whenever the plot demanded it. I would recommend this book to readers who enjoy books (or series) about witches, magic, and supernatural powers. There are graphic sexual scenes so it is recommended for adults only.

I was carried away from the wonderful fantasy of it all! A Witch’s Destiny is the seventh exciting installment in Leigh Ann Edwards’ the Irish Witch series. In my opinion, it also sports the loveliest cover in the series. The series is a magical romantic fantasy saga set in sixteenth century Ireland featuring witches, a swoony hero, an evil curse, Celtic gods, spirits, demons, fairies and a colorful chorus of other super naturals. This is a series that should be read in order. Each installment has incrementally built towards the coming final battle between good and evil. The author does fill in the basics of what has transpired previously, but I cannot imagine not reading this series sequentially. This book picks up where the previous book, A Witch’s Quest, left off. Unfortunately, the previous book bogged down in England and that arc continued during the first part of this segment. Thankfully, the slowness regarding the couple’s sojourn in England and the evil child was short-lived herein and the magic, fantasy and romance that made me fall in love with this series moved to the forefront in short order. As the last book in this series, there is much recollection of Alainn’s and Killain’s life that has transpired over the series. I found those flashbacks to be refreshing and not boring in the least. As this tale opens, Alainn and Killain are embarking on a dangerous quest to find their fathers as Alainn believes that they may hold the answers they need. Along the way, the couple will confront evil, cavort with the gods, make new friends, enjoy sexy times AND provide many laugh-out-loud moments! I laughed, mourned, swooned, and was carried away in the fantasy of it all. When I think back to the first book when we first met Alainn and Killain as children and to everything that has taken place since, I’m blown away by it all. It makes me want to go back and relive their highly entertaining, but perilous journey all over again. There were so many scenes that stood out, but I would be remiss if I didn’t mention the one where Alainn meets the trow. I couldn’t stop laughing as Alainn engaged in a lively discourse with the creature. I especially loved the hilarity over a certain male appendage. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed reading this wonderful, fun and addictive drama set in enchanting and often devious locales. I was surprised and thrilled to find that this book ended with a semi-cliffhanger which unexpectedly sets up a sequel series for Alainn, Killain and Danhoul. So, happily, their story is not finished and will continue in the future! I can’t wait to accompany them on their next sure-to-be lively and treacherous adventure as they fight the terrible evil that endangers the world!

Let me begin by saying I was not sure if i was going to read this book this month or not but was kinda pushed into reading it. I was so happy i got a little mental shove as it were. I really enjoyed the extra time it took me to read this book. It was fun to read it aloud with the accents aplenty. Yes, i read mainly at night so you know how that went over with my poor hubs too. Ear Plugs were used for 2 days that I was reading this book. Ear plugs. But It was worth it for me to enjoy a trip back in time. This is the first book in this series that I have read but i do plan to go back and read the other books and then re-read this one. We have Alainn who is a witch (has to hide it) and her husband is Killian O'Brein. They go through many trials and have gone through many in previous books (yes the author lets us know about them in this book so we are not lost). Alainn's believes her father help rescue her so they have set sail for where she believes he was last seen in a vision. Her husband doesn't believe he is there or alive. Not only that there are secrets being kept on both sides that cause issues. Remember this is not modern day Scotland and England but back in the early days where you road on a boat to go somewhere or horseback. If your were even thought to be a witch you would be burned so.... If you like books based in the past and ones that have some time travel i think you should give this one a try. I am happy I did.
