Twisted Destiny is an epic fantasy novel and the fourth book of the Anandrian Series by Kathryn Heaney. Douglas who is husband to Kathryn, Diana and Manus' daughter, is preparing for his Druid ceremony when Lucifer's former lover Mandy Dixon makes an impromptu visit, alongside her daughter Jessica and Lucifer's underling, Jeff. Soon, an unforeseen calamity occurs as Vaaron, Laura, Ella, Jessica, and Jeff find themselves in Anandria while the portal connecting to Earth closes unexpectedly. To make matters worse, Laura falls into a mysterious coma, and no amount of healing will wake her up. While Raonull is desperate to return to Anandria to reunite with his wife, Ella learns that she has unwittingly dethroned the King of Fae, Bradach. With the collapse of the Faerie Dimension and the Darkness threatening to consume Laura, can Kathryn and her friends fight back?
Twisted Destiny builds up on the solid groundwork laid by the previous installments of the Anandrian Series. The book uses it as a springboard to delve deeper into the characters and extend the sprawling world author Kathryn Heaney has created. At its core, the Anandrian Series is a family drama set in a fantastical world of faeries, demons, and dragons. Kathryn, Douglas, Ella, and Raonull all have moments to shine in this tale, with secondary characters like Laura, Vaaron, Paul, and Jessica having their own plot threads. Heaney's worldbuilding felt as immersive as ever, and as a reader, you will find yourself hooked from the get-go. I thoroughly enjoyed the book and will gladly recommend it to fantasy lovers.
