The Wolf by Jean Johnson

The second book in the novel of the sons of destiny, it was a book i borrowed after much deliberation. i prefer my heroes and heroines to be alone if possible, as in no relatives and what nots. if not, i get tempted to read the rest of the sequels/prequels and if i can't find them, it's frustrating especially when you're in the mood. anyway the synopsis for this is the same as from the back of the book.
eight brothers, born in 4 sets of twins, 2 years apart from each other. they fulfil the curse of 8 prophecy. to avoid tempting destiny, the brothers are exiled to nighfall isle, where women are forbidden. when a childhood friend seeks refuge among the brothers, it triggers a confrontation with their mysterious enemy.
alys arrives desperate and afraid but welcomed by wolfer, the second born brother. they've each harboured deep feelings for each othr but alys harbours a secret as well. it's her very own uncle who torments the exiled brothers, plaguing them with creatures, and who seeks to kill them to secure their ancestral inheritance for himself.
but confessing her uncle's plan to the brothers will put them at even greater risk,for their resistance against the evil mage has stirred his wrath. this time, alys fears her uncle's determined to exterminate the brothers once and for all-destroying the star-crossed lovers as well.
well it was exactly as i mentioned earlier. reading this book made me want for some more of the other sequels. i'm sure i mentione this before in my earlier posts as well but still, it's amazing how creative and imaginative authors are. to be able to think up such long stories and link them all together, kudos to them. hope you all enjoy this book.
