While Keri Arthur is best known for her "Riley Jensen, Guardian" series, Destiny Kills is the first in a very different - and very promising - new series by the author.

Destiny McCree wakes up on a beach with none but a dead man for company. She's also lost her memory, although she knows that she is trying to escape the people responsible for the death of the man beside her. Fortunately for Destiny she gradually begins to recover her memory, aided by meeting up with Trae Wilson, a master thief who carries some secrets like her own.

Destiny and Trae are something more than human, and their preternatural abilities are what makes this book such fun. They both have missions to complete - to rescue those in trouble who are dear to them - and these missions aren't necessarily compatible. As the action moves from Oregon to Loch Ness, we see Destiny at her most resourceful, supported by Trae with his own unusual skills.

Destiny Kills reached a satisfactory conclusion, although an extra plot thread remains to be explored, presumably in the next book in the "Myth and Magic" series. Overall, this is a really enjoyable read with a lot of action, an interesting premise and a plausible romance. Although the characterization runs a little thin, the characters are nonetheless appealing and I was rooting for them all the way.

Originally published on Curled Up With A Good Book at Helen Hancox, 2008
