Rydan, the Guardian of the Nightfall Fountain, is a loner. He hates crowds, which to him is more than one other person near his space. Thus he is unhappy when the twins Arora and Amara are shipwrecked on Nightfall Island even as he is attracted to the former while his brother Trevan desires the latter (see THE CAT).-------------- He rejects the concept that Rora is his destined mate. However she sees inside his soul and knows why he runs from emotions feelings are painful to her beloved. She plans to heal him, but first must deal with the trouble that followed her and her sister to Nightfall Island.-------------- Although readers know much of the events having read them in THE CAT, Jean Johnson keeps the tale fresh as the perspective of the other twins are different from those of Trevan and Amara. The story line maintains the fast pace, but new revelations occur as Rydan keeping with his overall loner persona meets his fate as one of the Sons of Destiny in the aptly titled THE STORM. Ms. Johnson keeps her romantic fantasy saga at the top bar of excellence.--------- Harriet Klausner

Oh goody, goody. In "The Storm" by Jean Johnson, Ryder gets his woman! This is book five from the 'Sons of Destiny' series. The series follows eight brothers, four sets of twins who are under a curse and were banished to an island. Each book tells the story of one of the brothers, all mages, finding love in accordance with the prophecy and the curse.Rydan is the antisocial one. He's always known that he felt better when he was apart from other people, he just didn't know why. He's also the Guardian of a magic Fountain and if he's interpreting the prophecy correctly, then to get his woman he will have to give up Guardianship of his fountain...something he has absolutely no intention of doing.Rora's magic is unusual in that she doesn't 'perform' magic, she 'carries' magic. The end result is that she and her sister were forced to flee from their homeland, chased by mages trying to steal or use Rora's power. She can also 'see' emotions as colors, and she's astonished to realize that Rydan's problem is he cannot shield himself from his own and others' emotions. With Rora's help, he is getting better and she is more attracted every day. But will he be willing to sacrifice what he treasures most to have Rora?Another fascinating book in this series. Before I read it, I was sure I wasn't going to like Ryder as he was so cold and uncommunicative. But knowing why? Well, that changed everything. Johnson's handling of the physical and emotional issues around Ryden and Rora's relationship was really touching. And there's plenty of heat here too. If you enjoy your romances in series form, you really need to check this one out. It has a very historical feel to it, even though at least two of the 'brides' are from 'our' world. Magic, hot sex, shapeshifters, and ordinary humans. Good storyline, excellent plotting and beautiful writing.

I've been anticipating this book from the very first book. Rydan was the mysterious anti-social brother. And there was something about him that made me just want to read more. The rest of his brothers and their mates are all pretty open, but Rydan shunned their presence and when he did reluctantly show himself, he was all growly and rude. So of course that makes the reader curious about him. And for nintey percent of the book he didn't disappoint. He first meets 'his mate', Rora, when she sneaks into his lair. He's under some potion his trouble making younger brother, who's story will be the last one, drugged his drink. He's dreaming of a woman and when Rora turns up in his room, Rydan makes his move. He is horrified when he realizes what he's done, but Rora is intrigued. She has a superpower of her own and she alone realizes what makes Rydan so anti-social. She works on helping him overcome his problem.Rora is the opposite of her prickly twin sister. She realizes that this island of mages is the perfect place for her to be and they can protect her from all those seeking her power.In the meantime, Rydan is the Guardian of his own source of power - the Fountain, one of a group of fountains located throughout this world.I loved both Rydan and Rora. Rydan is the reluctant suitor - he realizes that Rora is his intended mate and Rora is the eager young miss who falls in love with this troubled mage.But I'm not sure what happened towards the end of the book. It somehow seemed to come derailed with Rydan giving up his Guardianship to save Rora from the evil doers who want her power. The explanations were hard to understand and I found myself confused as to what was going on. It just seemed that Rydan's change of heart happened way to fast.One thing I did like about both The Cat and The Storm is they happened simultaneously - from two different viewpoints. One book filled in the missing pieces of the other and I thought it an interesting thing for the author to do.
