I'll start off by saying that previous to this book, I was in love with Aprilynne Pike's intriguing and beautifully woven story about a girl who discovers she's a fairy. I read the first three books in one sitting for each, and then proceeded to read them again. There was something magical not just about the story, but the writing, and I love, love, loved it!
However, Destined, which claims to be the "perfect ending" to the series, was the biggest let down I've ever read. As oppose to the other books, this one was not as well written; there were choppy paragraphs and the entire story didn't flow nicely as the others had. Another point was that in this last book, none of the characters are likable. You hate David for being so whiny and sulky for Laurel, and then smug and rude to Tamani when he gets Laurel. You hate Laurel for switching her feelings for the entire book and complaining about almost everything. You hate Chelsea because she's trying to be with David and gets huffy and pathetic when she doesn't get him. And of course you hate Yuki because she's being rude to everyone. Even the Winter Queen makes you cringe with every word she says, not because she is a chilling and brilliant character, but because it is so poorly written and she is way to idiotic a character to even find believable.
Now, in no way does this review affect my view of the other three books in the series. However, be warned, that if you do decide to take up the series, you're in for the biggest letdown of your life.

    First of all, I would like to say that I LOVE this series; but I was really disappointed with this book. It was a great story and it had a great ending, but i thought it was a little slow. There were places in the book where I got bored and just wanted to skip ahead. Im really happy that I got to finish the series but I really expected more from this book.
