Lea Ryan is an author of romance and paranormal fiction. She lives in Indiana with a husband and an equal ratio of cats to fish to human children. When she isn't writing, she can be found playing video games, drawing, or hiding in a quiet spot, dreaming of things improbable.

Destined for Darkness is well written and highly entertaining. Lea Ryan has a knack for bringing her story to life.
The characters all have little quirks and unique personalities, which makes them feel real. Even the minor characters are well developed.
The setting is handled incredibly well. It's often a challenge for an author to find the right balance between giving enough detail to allow readers to envision the scene, and so much detail that the story becomes weighed down and dull. The author has no such problem here. I felt like I was right there with the characters, seeing what they saw, but my imagination was still free to fill in the blanks.
While the story is about witches and, therefore, delves into the paranormal, it remains completely believable.
I downloaded this book from Smashwords during a promotion long ago. For some reason, it sat on my Kindle unread all this time. I didn't expect to enjoy it quite so much, but I truly have no negatives to share. I'm looking forward to reading the next book in this series.
