A Witch's Destiny by Leigh Ann Edwards has many dimensions to it, and each dimension is as appealing and bewitching as the previous one. Alainn and Killian are in love, but have one major difference: magic. Alainn is a witch, whereas Killian is a mortal. Nevertheless, their love is above this complication. In fact, the more complications that come their way due to Alainn's supernatural abilities, the more their love thrives. Their marriage has one major hurdle that may ruin their everlasting love. Alainn is pregnant with another man's child which she wishes to abort at the earliest opportunity. She has hidden this condition from her husband, but this has not been easy. With the help of her guardian, Danhoul, she somehow manages to conceal this truth. To add to her list of problems, a demon is following Alainn, and she is sure that the baby growing inside her womb is pure evil. Her attempts to terminate her pregnancy have been vain. With each passing moment, her patience and health are deteriorating. Despite all these troubles, she cannot rest since she has been having visions that indicate she must locate her father. So Killian, Danhoul, and others are going above and beyond to unite Alainn with her father.

The seeds of Danhoul's romantic inclinations towards Alainn are explained by introducing reincarnation, which was truly interesting. Believers in this concept will have their faith restored. Alainn maintained her sense of humor in even the most difficult situations and that was what I loved about her. She did not give up, ever. When she made up her mind to do something, even the gods could not stop her. Leigh Ann Edwards has portrayed Alainn as no damsel in distress. She is distressed, but has not lost her wits. Since the primary genre of the book is fantasy, the supernatural element is always under the critical lens of the reader. Leigh Ann Edwards is aware of this fact and has not left any stone unturned in using magic whenever the plot demanded it. I would recommend this book to readers who enjoy books (or series) about witches, magic, and supernatural powers. There are graphic sexual scenes so it is recommended for adults only.
