Master of Fate is amazingly the sixth book in the series and yet it's still a completely original story with both new and also much loved characters from previous books. This is a book about love and loss that's tragic and yet this is a romance so of course this couple deserve a happy ending.We have met the Soulceress Aurora before but the reader knows full well that her powers are reviled by most of her fellow Mytheans and yes there is good cause. She lost control of her gifts and crossed the line but her sister never gave up on her. Now Aurora is trying to live a quiet life in Edinburgh but it seems her talents are very much needed and so she journeys to Iceland to help.
Felix lost the female who called to his inner wolf and spent so many years trying to hunt her down. Taken prisoner by an evil seer he barely escaped with his life and now he lives with the consequences of his incarceration. Felix is unable to bare the simplest touch and now lives alone bedeviled by his memories. If Felix thought life could not get worse he was very much mistaken because back into his life comes the woman he believed dead, Aurora! Thrown together, adrift through time this couple are about to face the torment of a desire so hot it's incandescent! This couple have both suffered so much but their journey is about to get even more dangerous as past and present collide.
Yes, this is part of a series but very easy to read as a standalone. I've loved each book and enjoy these larger than life characters. What really hooks me though are the astounding powers this author imbues her characters with. Magic and shifters are frequently a theme in paranormal romance but the characters in this series delight with truly inspired abilities. Definitely not run of the mill and I always care about each couple. That's possibly why these books work so well as each time I pick up a Mythean story I know I'm getting a unique adventure, fueled by passion that will leave me smiling.
