About the Author

Leigh Evans was born in Montreal, Quebec but now lives in Southern Ontario. She's raised two kids, mothered four dogs, and herded a few cats. Other than that, her life was fairly routine until the day she decided to write a book about a half-Fae, half-Were girl who's a magnet for trouble. The first Mystwalker novel was grabbed by St. Martins, and released as THE TROUBLE WITH FATE in 2012. Second and third books quickly followed: THE THING ABOUT WERES and THE PROBLEM WITH PROMISES. At the age most people start thinking about retirement, Leigh is slinging words and pummeling plots. Leigh's destiny has finally been met: she's a writer. A little tardy, but then again, her mum always said she was a late bloomer.

Another great story in the Mystwalker Paranormal/Fantasy/urban fantasy/sci-fi realm- is it the end? Stay turned ***A gifted copy was provided by NetGalley for an honest review*** This is book 4 in the Mystwalker series. In this book we FINALLY get to see Hedi and Robson working together instead of apart. I enjoyed getting to see them as a unit instead of them being apart. Now, saying that, they aren’t fully together the whole book. (sad face) In this book Heidi’s twin brother is being held captive by the old mage in another realm. As soon as they arrive in that realm, they are separated BUT they work together. Finally, Heidi accepts all parts of her and owns who and what she was born as DESTINY takes place mostly in the FAE realm, and is the only book to do so. Not only are there new challenges - they speak a whole “nother” language - but there are new/old enemies and a totally different, completely unfamiliar land and culture as well.  Just to mention, this story picks up about hours after the previous story left off, the author provides just enough back story dusted in so , as the reader, I wasn’t having to go back and re-read. But if you are one of those people who have to wait until a series has a conclusion to go back and read , there isn't SO MUCH back story sprinkled in that it gets old. Heidi and Robson still have that chemistry that make reading this story wonderful and the fact you know they are *mates*, makes this even better. I just wish that they could spend the WHOLE book together without being separated. I would have given this a 5 star rating if they hadn’t kept separating them. Overall, still a very good paranormal/fantasy read and I will still continue to read the series.  My rating: 4.0 stars ****

4 stars--THE DANGER OF DESTINY is the fourth (and final?) instalment in Leigh Evans Mystwalker paranormal, urban fantasy series focusing on Hedi Peacock –half fae/half Were-and all alpha female. Her continuing story finds Hedi and her alpha mate werewolf Robson Trowbridge in Merenwyn-the land of the Fae –where the Were are nothing more than vermin and prey. As this is the fourth and final instalment in the series, I would strongly suggest reading the series in order. There is a copious amount of background and history leading up to The Danger of Destiny. Told from first person point of view (Hedi) the focus of the storyline finds Hedi and Robson returning to the ‘other realm’-the realm of the Fae known as Merenwyn- where Hedi’s twin brother Lexi has been held a virtual prisoner in both mind and body since a young boy. While Hedi returns to Merenwyn to free her brother, Robson returns to free and lead the Rahaells Were Pack to human civilization. The relationship between Hedi and Robson continues to be loving, caring and at times combative as Hedi continues to venture along her own path. THE DANGER OF DESTINY sees our couple working together towards both individual and common goals. Hedi is part Fae ; her magic is strong combined with her Were genes and in this she is a threat to both the Fae and Weres. Hedi and her brother are considered mutts because they are neither full Fae nor full Wolf, and in this they are persona non grata on both sides of the divide. Robson, on the other hand, is in love with his mate but knows that she must complete the journey that she began months before. The numerous secondary and supporting characters are colourful, energetic and direct a good portion of the storyline. Hedi’s tortured and misdirected brother Lexi is a character whose actions have placed him on a fine line straddling right and wrong. As a puppet for the evil Old Mage, Lexi is not always in control of his actions-in this, his ability to be redeemed is questioned by both Fae and Were. THE DANGER OF DESTINY forwards the series but a few days from the previous installment. The storyline is awash in magic, mystwalking, Fae, Weres and a war between good and evil. There is some graphic violence but not as graphic as in previous storylines; the sex is mostly implied but the reader is aware that Hedi and Robson are deeply in love. Leigh Evans’s style of writing is detailed, comprehensive and descriptive. She is an amazing story teller where the narration heightens the finer points of history, background information and storyline premise. Hedi’s thought and mystwalking adventures reveal plenty of detail and character history. I had mentioned that THE DANGER OF DESTINY is the final installment in the series but I am hoping for Hedi’s brother Lexi’s story to unfold. The Mystwalker series is a series about Hedi and her search for the truth about her past, present and future but the details surrounding Lexi are limited to Hedi’s observation and what little truth has been revealed by her brother and the Old Mage. Here’s to uncovering the who, what and why of Lexi’s missing years.

The fourth book in the Mystwalker series, The Danger of Destiny was a little confusing for me. Since I have not read the previous books I was a little lost, but that did not take away from the story at all. Hedi is half fae and half were. Her twin brother is being held captive by the Old Mage in the fae realm. Hedi goes there and makes a pact with the Old Mage to have her brother released. Her were mate, Robson, follows her to fae land and they are challenged with many obstacles. The beginning of the book is slow and full of so much back story. It really helps for someone (like me) who has not read the rest of the series. The pace picks up at mid-point and the story really takes off with action, magic, sexy romance, and suspense. I really like the push/pull dynamic between Hedi and Robson. Their mating is intense, but that doesn’t take away from Hedi’s strong will. Lexi, Hedi’s twin brother, is a mess and their relationship was interesting and well developed for a secondary one Overall, this is a really good book that makes me want to go back and read the rest of the series. I received a complimentary copy of this book for review.

THE DANGER OF DESTINY is by far and above my favorite of the Mystwalker books. We FINALLY get to see our hero and heroine work together instead of apart, and Heidi accepts all parts of her and owns who and what she was born as. It was extremely refreshing to see after the previous three books had her unsure of herself and her place in the world.  While this story picks up (kind of) just hours after the previous story left off, there is still enough back story sprinkled in so I wasn't totally lost. But if you are one of those people who likes to wait until a series has a conclusion, there isn't SO MUCH back story sprinkled in that it gets old. These would be great books to binge on.  DESTINY takes place mostly in the Fae realm, and is the only book to do so. Not only are there new challenges - they speak another language - but there are new/old enemies and a totally unfamiliar terrain and culture as well. Heidi up until now just cannot catch a break ... other than snagging Trowbridge as her mate! And it really is a good thing too, he makes a fantastic and sexy guide through the forest. I don't want to say too much, because this is the best series you have never heard of, and while this is a review for the last book in it, I don't want to give away any more from the previous books! Give it a shot, and let me know what you think!
