Author Jean Johnson writes romance that is mixed with fantasy and adventure.
She has written other books, but I've only read the Sons of Destiny Series.
This is a really interesting book series about 8 brothers, 4 sets of twins. Each book is about each of the brothers. All of the books are closely related.
The brothers were exiled to Nightfall where they were destined to live alone. But fate steps in and brings their women to them one by one, hence the book series.
This series is a fun series. The brothers are living on this island, trying to make it work. I enjoyed this series.
This is a poem from Jean Johnson's site. This helps to understand the overall story line. And it's also an interesting poem.
Check out her site for a full list of her books and for more information about each of the books.
Here's a fun poem that I found on Jean Johnson's website that helps to understand about the Sons of Destiny.
Song of the Sons of Destiny
‘The Eldest Son shall bear this weight:
If ever true love he should feel
Disaster shall come at her heel
And Katan will fail to aid
When Sword in sheath is claimed by Maid
The Second Son shall know this fate:
He who hunts is not alone
When claw would strike and cut to bone
A chain of Silk shall bind his hand
So Wolf is caught in marriage-band
The Third of Sons shall meet his match:
Strong of will and strong of mind
You seek she who is your kind
Set your trap and be your fate
When Lady is the Master’s mate
The Fourth of Sons shall find his catch:
The purest note shall turn to sour
And weep in silence for the hour
But listen to the lonely Heart
And Song shall bind the two apart
The Fifth Son shall seek the sign:
Prowl the woods and through the trees
Before you in the woods she flees
Catch her quick and hold her fast
The Cat will find his Home at last
The Sixth Son shall draw the line:
Shun the day and rule the night
Your reign’s end shall come at light
When Dawn steals into your hall
Bride of Storm shall be your fall
The Seventh Son shall he decree:
Burning bright and searing hot
You shall seek that which is not
Mastered by desire’s name
Water shall control the Flame
The Eighth Son shall set them free:
Act in Hope and act in love
Draw down your powers from above
Set your Brothers to their call
When Mage has wed, you will be all.’
‘Song of the Sons of Destiny’
The Seer Draganna
