WHY WHISTLE IN THE DARK...
There are very few days off when you're on an epic quest. Believe me, I know. I'm Hedi Peacock-one half Fae, the other were-and if being a half-breed with one foot in each world isn't tough enough to manage, there are the four chambers of my heart to consider. The one who holds the strings? Robson Trowbridge, the Alpha of Creemore. If I had my way, he and I would be locked in a bedroom, for eternity, but a pressing family matter needs my attention. It's true what they say: A woman's work is never done.

WHEN YOU CAN HOWL AT THE MOON?
My twin brother is being held captive by the Old Mage in another realm. Lo and behold, as soon as Trowbridge and I arrive in Merenwyn, we're separated in spectacular, dramatic fashion-and I'm left to figure out how to maintain the fragile balance between my Fae magic and my wolf's blood in a realm that cries to both. Not easy, particularly when I'm keeping an iron-grip on my temper so as not to dispatch with extreme prejudice the odd wizard or smart-mouthed mutt servant who crosses my path. My mama never told me there'd be days like these, but I'm not going down without a fight...or my mate.

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. M...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Evans is an amazing story teller 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The Danger of Destiny A woman’s work is never done and destiny has Heidi and Trowbridge in Merenwyn to rescue her twin brother from the Old Mage in this exciting urban fantasy romance. Heidi and Trowbridge are separated shortly after arriving in Merenwyn and the reader can’t help but get caught up in all the excitement as the epic quest seems to be an unending fight for survival and Heidi decides she’s not going down without a fight – or without her mate. The attraction between Heidi and Trowbridge has gotten steadily stronger throughout the series, so the chemistry in this story burns hotter than ever as Heidi finally accepts parts of herself and her destiny. The strong compelling characters demand reader’s attention from the very beginning and the steady to fast paced plot keeps readers on the edge of anticipation with lots of suspense, action, emotional turmoil, ups and downs and passion. There is never a dull moment as Merenwyn is full of deadly adversaries including some close to home, unforeseen dangers and malicious traps with spine tingling expectation building as Heidi and Trowbridge get closer to the conclusion of their quest and their success hinges on a wing and a prayer. Heidi’s internal debates with herself, her fae, and her wolf sides adds lots of spice and depth to the story as well as providing some humor while the well written scenes and details bring the story to life and the well planned events draw the reader’s along on Heidi and Trowbridge’s adventures and refuse to let the reader put the book down until they have read every last word. Or at least that is certainly the case with me as I stayed up all night so I could find out what happened next especially with the surprising twists and turns that kept me on my toes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Destiny Fulfilled The Danger of Destiny is a moving finale for the Mystwalker Series. It wraps up all the story lines well, has the right balance of love, wonder, mystery, and action. Leigh Evans has a gift of description that you don't usually find. You find yourself in Hedi's eyes, feeling what she feels and getting angry and lusty all along with her. I love the fact that Hedi isn't a hero, she never wanted to be, she's not even a reluctant hero. She just wants peace and comfort. But she rises to the challenge and discovers her inner bitch and fae all make her whole.
