Destiny Kills

(Myth and Magic Series #1)

Waking up on a deserted beach battered, next to the dead body of a man, with no memories of who you are or what brought you there is unsettling to say the least. Though not long after awaking Destiny McCree is flooded with knowledge of the past, who the man was, what she is, and the cause that joined them together, landing them on the Oregon coast. 
 
Trae Wilson is a sexy thief who has been called to help Destiny, though he has an agenda all of his own. She has something of his that he needs, but is not willing to just hand it over. Both have powers beyond human comprehension, and a connection that cannot be broken. Destiny is a sea dragon while Trae is an air dragon, both able to shift-forms and call unto the earths natural powers. Soon Trae finds himself joining Destiny's battle. A fight that will take them to the Northern Atlantic shores of Maine and back to her ancestral lands on Loch Ness in Scotland.
 
I loved following Destiny and Trae through their relationship and their travels. Keri Arthur did an excellent job creating an engrossing story that hooked me from page one. I really liked Destiny's determination and passion for life, while she had spent much of her life in captivity, she never gave up on the hope of freedom. When she finally attained her goal it was at a huge cost, but she knew she must go back to help those that were still at the hands of evil. Trae was hot, sexy and extremely lovable. I loved the connection between them, and how Trae wasn't discouraged by her attempts to fight the battle alone, and helped her fulfill her destiny. I also loved the little teasers about Trae's sister and look forward to meeting her in the next book.
