The Wizard's Daughters: Book 1 by Michael Dalton


Amazon Book Description:

When down-on-his-luck swordsman Erich von Jülich-Berg accepts a job protecting Walther the Artificer on a trip from his village to Free City of Köln, his only motivation is to replenish his empty purse.

Walther’s twin daughters Ariel and Astrid, skilled mages in their own right, are in search of a husband. But marriage for mages carries with it unique challenges, for their mate will be chosen solely by their place in the magical Flow—not their hearts.

Erich soon finds himself caught up in a drama that will return him to a painful and dangerous place in his life that he thought he had long left behind, and pull him into the lives of two unusual women he soon grows to care about—but cannot have.

In this unique alternate history adventure set in pre-Reformation Germany, Michael Dalton spins a twisted but entertaining steampunk fairy tale that is sure to entertain old fans and new.

My Review: 
Michael is a master of dialogue. When his characters converse, it's like I can actually hear the tone of their voices. His writing style is gripping and engaging, drawing his readers right into this novel. He has created a story in which it's not only acceptable, but actually honorable for one man to marry twin sisters. With that being said, it may come as a surprise when I say compared to most of the books I review on this blog, The Wizard's Daughters is much more of a romance than an erotica. Upon meeting each other, these characters are destined to never be together, intensifying their longing. Is there any chance they can have each other, despite their destiny?
