Booklist Review

Johnson continues the Son of Destiny series that began with The Sword (2007). Alys, her uncle's prisoner, uses her shape-shifting talents to escape and reach Nightfall Isle, where she finds Wolfer, her closest childhood friend. In the castle she meets Kelly, the self-proclaimed Queen of Nightfall who is married to Wolfer's twin. Kelly triggered the curse around which Johnson's complex fantasy-romance series is constructed. Although the plot may be slow moving, those who love detailed lovemaking scenes will revel in the 20 pages devoted to Alys and Wolfer's first intimate encounter. --Diana Tixier Herald Copyright 2007 Booklist
