Destined Review


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.
What I Loved
I love it when I finally get to read the last concluding book of the series. However this is also a bittersweet ending, with both happiness and sadness for our beloved characters. I personally would love for Aprilynne to revisit this world years later and possibly from Yasmine's POV, that would be so cool.
There is never ending excitement in this book, from beginning to end the book does not slow down in the least. Avalon must be protected at all costs and that is what they will do. Excalibur joins the fight and guess who gets the infamous sword! Constant battle and a race against time, what is not to love.
Team Boy
By Illusions I finally decided Team Tamini and I suck with my decisions throughout this book. I will always love David and he really shined in Destined, but I adore Tamini even more.
Most of the book takes place in Avalon and I really liked that about Destined. I really enjoyed Aprilynne's take on Avalon and the fae and I'm glad we got to spend more time in this land even though it was the battle ground.

Almost Tears
At the end there is a letter that was so sad and wonderful and I came so close to tears. I will miss this series and I hate to say goodbye, good thing I own them all and I can go back to them one day.

If you haven't picked up this series yet you really should. I loved it and will be getting a finished copy of the book.

I totally agree about the never ending excitement from beginning to end. And that letter. Oh gosh it is heartbreaking!

So glad you sided with Team Tamani. I wasn't the biggest David fan. Great guy but Tamani and his green hair was always my favorite.

I also loved that this took place in Avalon. It was a perfect end to this series.

Great review!
