Amara was to be the queen of the shapeshifters, but instead was forced to flee her kingdom in order to save the life of her twin sister Arora. The mages want Arora for her unique special magic. The siblings barely make it to Nightfall Island after surviving a nasty swim from their wrecked ship.---------- There on Nightfall Island reside eight brothers, four sets of twins, with four of them having found their soulmates. Trevan the shapeshifter has waited too long for his to arrive. Now that she has, his Amara distrusts Trevan, his siblings and their women as mages want to kill her and kidnap her sister to use as their tool.---------- Once again Jean Johnson does, as she has done with the four previous Sons of Destiny tales, creates a stand alone tale that focuses one of the brothers and his beloved, but it behooves the audience to read the previous books first (see THE SWORD), etc. because there is also an overarching theme developing. The key to this fine entry that starts the second half of the saga is the audience sees deep inside the hearts of Trevan THE CAT and the ex Queen Amara so what matters to each of them is fully understood especially her distrust of magic using males. Fans will appreciate this visit to the Johnsonian Universe.--------- Harriet Klausner

I liked this one much better than The Song. Amara is a prickly kind of heroine, almost difficult to like earlier in the book. But when you consider what she gave up to protect her sister, I made allowances. And as prickly as she was, she was also quick to make amends so I think she was redeemed enough for me. I was kind of surprised by how much I liked Trevan. He hadn't really been much of a prominent brother in the previous books, so it was only in this one where we really got to know him and he's quite the charmer. He was the 'lover' of the brothers before they were exiled to the island and he's having quite the 'frustrating' time of it, especially when his older brothers start finding their mates. So he is delighted when he meets Amara, a queen-in-waiting who escapes along with her twin sister to their kingdom. Amara and Arora are being hunted by mages for Arora's strange powers. Amara, her protector is horrified when she realizes she's landed on an island full of mages. In addition, she clashes with Kelly, the self-proclaimed Queen and is resentful that she had to give up her dreams of becoming Queen of her land to save her sister. She's most reluctant to fall for the charmer that is Trevan, but he perseveres and finally wins her love.What knocks this book down in for me though was the detail the author took in the group planning of house building and city planning. My eyes kind of crossed during this part of the book and I mostly skimmed it. But overall, this was a nice edition to this series and I quite enjoyed it.

I'm a big fan of the Sons of Destiny series by Joan Johnson and her latest offering "The Cat", certainly hasn't changed my mind. A quick summary. These novels are about 8 brothers (4 sets of twins) who are mages and were banished to a deserted island because of a prophesy. I really don't want to get into details, but every book recounts the tale of one of the brothers who finds his other half in a very unusual way. I picked up the first book "The Sword" and was hooked. "The Cat" is book #5 and I'm still hooked.Trevan is a mage who, among other things, can change his shape. His verse of the prophesy reads "...Before you in the woods she flees, Catch her quick and hold her fast, The Cat will find his Home at last." And Trevan will need all of his skills and abilities to hold on to the woman for him.These books have a fairly good heat index on the sex scale, magic, mystery, suspense, and some have magic battles to boot. One of the things I liked about this book was the lack of a life-and-death struggle. Most of the earlier books have at least one of these, and I was glad to see at least one of the brothers have a 'relatively' danger-free courtship. In each book, I learn something new about the mages, their world, and their abilities. I'll definately be waiting for the next books, "The Storm" in Sep08, and "The Flame" in Dec08. And the hunks on the covers ain't too shabby either!!
