Has anyone read this?   It is under the Fantasy category but might also be romance?  I'm always on the look out for a new author...but I thought I'd see if anyone here liked/disliked this book..

thanks!

There's a sub-genre of Fantasy called Paranormal Romance.  Keri Arthur's books normally fall into that category.

I'm not a big fan of Paranormal Romance, so I haven't read this one, but I do know she's a rather popular author.

You'll probably find someone who's read it and can tell you if it's good in the Paranormal forum though.

I read this one and had it on my shelf a few months ago. It got ordered pretty quickly. She is a popular author and has another series about a werewolf/vampire hybrid.

As far as Destiny Kills goes, I liked it, but I didn't love it. The romance was sweet and the male hero was droolworthy, but it just didn't end up being a keeper for me. By the time the book was over, I felt their story was complete, and wasn't hooked into reading the next book in the series. I really liked the mythological references (sea dragons and air dragons), and the writing was decent enough. I wish I'd liked it more, but what can you do?
