Part 3 of Maggie Shayne's immortals series. The series is very violent but I did enjoy all 3 books.
Another one for fantasy/mystery/romance readers. Readers of all ages would love this book (18+).
Meet Nidaba, an immortal High Witch: her life is a fascinating look at the idea of Witchcraft, history and reality. Born to have only one true mate, she lives thousands of years, before finally she meets the man for whom she was destined. Truly an awesome series...Destiny, Infinity, and Eternity.
This was a hard book to put down. It jumped between the past and present day so if you don't like that type of time line, don't read it. That said, the format helped to create that "I just can't put it down!" feeling.
This is the 3rd book in the series. You can read it alone, but the first two books are a good reference for a couple of the characters.
I read this series and enjoyed it. The magic was nice, the plots were well written, and she wrote with a cadence I enjoyed. Then I read Destiny, this book will be a go to book for me. I couldn't put it down, and when I had too I was talking about it incessantly. I loved the history of the characters and detail of their past. I Highly recommend it.
