The Danger Of Destiny - Leigh Evans

Hedi Peacock and her mate Robson Trowbridge go through the portal to Merenwyn on dangerous quests.  The former thief hopes to save her twin Lexi from the Mage who owns his soul; while the Alpha wolf plans to have Hedi’s back but also attempt to liberate the Raha’ells Weres from bondage.

Each understood going in that they probably will not get out alive let alone achieve the objectives.  However, Hedi and Robson quickly conclude they underestimated badly the chance of success as “Strangers in a Strange Land” (Heinlein) prove much more dangerous than either expected.  The only hope to rescue her brother and the Raha’ells while also getting out alive resides within Hedi who completely must accept her hybrid duality as a wolf and fae.

The final Mystwalker fantasy (see The Problem With Promises and The Thing About Weres) is a marvelous finish to a delightful coming of age saga as Leigh Evans deftly ties up the major threads by having her reluctant heroine and her sidekick cross over to the other side.  Told mostly from Hedi’s perspective, series fans will agree she considerably matured from when she first fell into the were-fae “rabbit-hole” (see The Trouble With Fate).
