    Easy, entertaining read

    The Titanic + time travel + a vampire slayer = three topics I'm interested in. Equal parts action and romance made for an enjoyable read.

    A time traveling vampire hunter on the Titanic. Whats not to love

    I was a little hesitant about buying this book, I admit. I must say it had me from the beginning. I love the characters and the storyline. She managed to bring real people from the Titanic into the story. I love how the main character is in awe of the ship that she has read so much about and sick at heart knowing whats going to happen and can't warn them. I love to read anything to do with the Titanic and I recommend this one. The romance with the main character and a man she meets on board was heartbreaking. I will definitely be reading this again. Now I have to watch Titanic again.

    Awesome Debut!

    Time travel, vampires, a badass heroine, and romance - this has it all. And without the feeling of trying too hard to contain too many elements at once.

    Appoline Greer is a current-time vampire hunter in 2012. Involved in an accident on her plane flight home after a recent mission, she finds herself waking to inhabit the body of an ancestor on the Titanic - 100 years in the past. Complicating matters is her deepening attraction to a man who seems to be a kindred spirit, and the unexpected appearance of a longtime family nemesis.

    We feel the sense of urgency as the ship nears it's collision course with the iceberg. Will Appoline complete her great-great-grandmother's mission? Will she ever return to her own time? And what of her heart?

    I found myself wanting this book to go on, and on.

    I wasn't sure what to expect when I first accepted Kraft's review request. All I knew was that it had vampires, the Titanic, and time travel. Three things that, individually, are amazing, hold my interest, and make for good reads. I accepted the request immediately.

    This book surpassed every expectation I had for it. I love it so much. The emotion the story draws out of you is insane. I became teary-eyed on numerous occasions. Often times when we think of the Titanic, we forget that these were real living and breathing people that died horrifically. Destined really does it justice and makes your heart ache. Allison Kraft is an amazingly talented writer.

    I told a lot of people at work about this book and usually when I explained it to them, I got goosebumps. It's that good. I usually referred to as "reading the movie". You know how you get choked up and cry during the James Cameron film? Yeah, you're reading it.

    Now I want to go watch the movie and cry.

    Enjoyable story that takes place on the Titanic.

    I truly enjoyed this book. The premise of a vampire slayer on the Titanic seemed a bit strange, but the story really is a beautiful relationship tale where the main female character just happens to be from a long line of vampire slayers. The only vampire connection is why she thinks she was transported back to 1912 and onto the Titanic.

    It is very apparent Miss Kraft did a great deal of research on the Titanic disaster. Her descriptions of the ship are so vivid you can easily visualize the Titanic, even if you never saw the movie. All crew members and passengers described (other than the four main fictional characters) are the actual people who sailed on this fateful inaugural cruise, and Miss Kraft treats their demise in the reverend manner her extensive research demanded.

    I found Destined easy to read, entertaining, and I look forward to her next novel.
