"Laurel now knows the truth: Yuki is a rare Winter faerie, the most powerful—and deadly—of all, and she is working with Klea to conquer and destroy Avalon. With Tamani, David, and Chelsea by her side, Laurel prepares for a fight she never thought she would have to face.
Filled with heart-pounding action, sweeping romance, and higher stakes at every turn, Destined is the series conclusion that readers have been clamoring for—with a twist that will leave them breathless.
Tamani looked at her gravely, and reached up to touch her hair behind her ear. He hesitated for an instant, then his hands found the sides of her face, pulling her to him. He didn't kiss her, just held her face to his, their foreheads resting together, their noses almost touching.
She hated how much it felt like good-bye."
I have read this series since the very beginning before I was a book blogger! An employee recommended it to me when it had just came out. The Wings series is my all-time, hands-down favorite faerie series. Even before I picked up this book my heart was pounding. How in the world can an author make me anticipate a book even before I pick it up?? It isn’t just the characters or the plot line. It’s the story telling. And Ms. Pike has got that down to a T.
War. The beginning of the end. The plot pacing in this book is superb. Ms. Pike careful weaves every single, plot twist to fall at the right moment. I loved being shocked but most of all amazed! Every thing that happen with each page turn left my heart pounding faster.
I want to take the time to talk about the plot twist. Cause I really do admire how well it was done. I like how certain things happen in order for others to take affect. And even though it was fast, it was subtle to. You know what I mean? Ms. Pike took her writing and brought it to life before you very eyes.
Now the love interest! AHHHHHHHHHHHHH! I loved it. Everything is at it should be. I’m I happy with it? You bet.The ending was bittersweet and so wonderful! I can’t wait to read it one more time!
Destined is a faithful adaptation of faeries that dazzles the reader. Destined will leave a mark on you.
With a striking ending, Destined is a touching and commanding story that everyone will enjoy!
I give it 5 BITES!
