“Intense, mystical and lyrical,” Raves Library Journal, calling New York Times Bestseller Maggie Shayne “one of romantic fantasy’s most accomplished authors.”
Nidaba, the high priestess he adored, had supposedly died in a fire more than four thousand years ago. But when the one-time King of Sumer, Eannatum, now living a quiet life as modern Nathan King, sees her photo in a newspaper, he has to know for sure.
He finds the once powerful High Priestess of Inanna in a locked mental unit, catatonic and alone. But when he breaks her out, taking her to his peaceful haven to make her well again, he doesn’t know that the dark one who tore them apart long ago is watching, or that he is putting his new life, and all those he loves, at terrible risk.
Scenes from the land of Ancient Sumer are skillfully blended into this contemporary novel, through flashbacks, memories and dreams, much like what is done in TV series like Lost, Revolution, and Once Upon a Time.
If you read and loved ETERNITY and IFNITY, books 1 and 2 in this series, you must have the third tale
“I am a huge fan of Maggie Shayne's paranormal fiction, and Destiny is among her best. The book kept me rivited. The detail and description of life in the ancient time of Sumer is absolutely fascinating. Her characters are appealing and well drawn. No one writes romance like Maggie.”
