The Prophecy of Destiny (Ancient Prophecy 1) by Leiland Dale

Will Stanton leads an ordinary life working with his grandfather in the family bookstore. From the moment he uncovers a trunk full of ancient papers and his grandmother's diaries, his life changes. He is soon thrusted into a world of werewolves and vampires where he uncovers the truth of his heritage and it's more than he ever imagined.

Eric Bryce is a werewolf whose pack members are slowing dying. As the first sign of the prophecy unfolds, the Ancient Ones guide Eric in search of his mate who is to play a key role in the future predicted long ago. He finally finds his mate, Will, working in a bookstore with danger not far behind. Together, they must fight both the vampires and the illness that is spreading across the pack.

Can Eric and Will fulfill their role in the prophecy or will time run out?

I love shapeshifter and /or werewolf stories... a LOT! And so when already-favourite author Leiland Dale's new book came out you better believe I bought it, and read it. 
I know that this is the first book in a series, that or Leiland just likes to tease his readers, and all I can say is -- bring 'em on!  Sooner rather than later please.  'Cause, oh my.

I delighted in the relationship that Will has with his grandfather; it's an important part of who Will is and it goes a long way to Will's acceptance of the total upheaval of his life.  Will's a real sweetheart and I think he and Eric make an incredible couple.
Eric? Well, the man left everything behind because he was doing what he had to, for the good of his pack, but also because he was totally drawn to Will. 

Along with prophecies and destiny, there's danger galore, but there is also emphasis on family --whatever form it takes-- and a sexy, hot and yet sweet romance. 
A very satisfying story and another winner for Leiland Dale. 
Now if only I didn't have to wait... guess that's what happens when I have to get and read all his books at once.


  1. I really like the sound of this series, Kathy! You know how to add more books to my angry TBR pile, lol! Wonderful review!

  2. Hey Janna, I'm sure that you'll repay the favour someday! Reading reviews always adds to my TBR.

    But it's nice to be on the giving side. *grin*

  3. *grin* I hope so because I would like to be on the giving side too (for once) ;)

  4. Oh it'll happen, never fear. I'm a book slut y'know... there's a few of us around. Thank heaven!
