Kyra is committed to her assignment to
keep the jewel from the magic users on her planet. Even if
that means she lives out her life on the foreign planet of
Earth. What she doesn’t count on is that the magician that
comes to retrieve it, Ellard, would think her human and want
to make sure she is not harmed when he takes it. He even
believes her when she plays along at being human. The
biggest issue appears to be that she is developing feelings
for Ellard, strong love feelings. Now what is a woman to do
when she is faced with a man she loves and the possibility
that all she has worked for might have been a lie?
All Ellard has to do before becoming
vizier, personal protector and confidant, to the incoming
king on their planet is to retrieve the jewels that have
been stolen. He is on a tight timetable and definitely
doesn’t need to have a woman tagging along that is human.
When he finds out she isn’t human and that he just might
love her things take an even further dip into the
forbidden. Viziers are strictly forbidden a love or family.
Now what is the pair to do? And will
they be able to return the jewels in time?
Destiny’s Jewel brings a
new twist to star crossed lovers, and one that is intriguing
to follow. Ms. Kenley does a fantastic job in painting the
hero of the story into a corner that appears to impossible
to get out of. At the same time the heroine has been fed
such bad information she might just be fighting for the
wrong side, based on her beliefs. But, she will do what it
takes to keep her love safe, even if it breaks her heart.
Destiny’s Jewel is
available in multiple forms. This reviewer listened to it
in audio form and thoroughly enjoyed the ‘ride’. The reader
does a good job in telling the unabridged story and keeping
the listener mentally engaged.
