Overview

Lilly has always been plagued by dreams; she dreams of another place and time, a place of pure beauty and light that suddenly erupts into fire and destruction.

Then, there is a man with the haunting blue eyes that seem to look through to her very soul. In one fateful afternoon Lilly learns that the dreams are more real than she could've ever imagined. They are a link to who she really is; the Gatekeeper to the realms. Born from both light and dark, with her memories bound, she learns that it is her destiny to gather the relics of the flower of life. Lilly must do this in order to close the gates before the under realm destroys them all, but there are those who will stop at nothing to keep her from fulfilling her destiny.

There are those who will try to sway her into the dark. She is torn between the love of two brothers; one, her loyal warrior, who has loved her since the beginning, and the other with the enthralling blue eyes that speak to her soul. One brother fights for the light, while the other fell into the darkness. Will she choose the brother that her soul longs for, or the brother that her heart calls out to?

“Destined” by Jenna Pizzi
I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
Even though I have read Heaven vs. Hell and Angels vs. Demons style books before, I found “Destined” to be unique in its own way. I liked the way Author Jenna Pizzi wrote this story and created ideas and twists to make it an original angel vs. demon story. Overall, I give “Destined” 4.5 STARS and recommend it to all Paranormal Romance readers.

I received this book from the author to give an honest review. This is one of those books, that will have you from the very beginning. You will want to stay up all night to finish this book, and then be a bit sad when it ends. Destined is about a girl name Lilly who never knew she was different or had a destiny in life. All she knows is that she has crazy dreams that she normally can not remember until now. All of a sudden she is thrown into a whole new world of daemons, and fighting for good against evil. While all this is going on she has the love of three guys who she does not want to hurt at all. They all three play a part in her life along with her best friend Amy. Lilly has powers that she is just finding out about and developing new ones along the way. Between the male characters of Keith, Seth, and Samil it was really hard to pick who I liked more. Keith is very very sweet and caring. Seth is her protector and will give his life for her. Samil is her soul-mate but he is evil. The position she is in, is not a good position to be in. Torn between the light and darkness she embarks on a journey to end the darkness with her friends. Will she be able to conquer it? I can not wait to read book 2 because I definitely wanted more when Destined ended. If you enjoy reading action-packed, the paranormal, good vs. evil then please pick up this book. I don't think you would be disappointed.

Destined by Jenna Pizzi is a terrific book. Lilly thinks she is a normal teenage college student who has a couple extra voices in her head and dreams.  Turns out she is not normal, nor a teenager.  She is the Gatekeeper and is Destined to continue to relive her life to protect humans from evil.  This is suspenseful, emotional, mysterious and intriguing.  I cannot wait to see where we go next.

I absolutely loved this book. Such a great story of good vs evil. And the love stories between Lilly & Seth, and Lilly & Samil are great! I can't wait to read the next part of this story to see what is going to happen with everyone and the world!

*I received this book via Lady Amber’s Tours in exchange for an Honest Review* This book has potential.. The story has a great concept behind it.. But… It needs a lot of work to bring out the full potential of the story… One thing in this book that irked the hell out of me was after the reader is told Lilly has to get the Flower of Life… it is forever deemed FoL after that.. NO ONE would say FoL in a conversation especially not some immortal beings, nor would it be deemed as such in the narration, yet it is constantly in this story. They’d call it by it’s proper name. This small slight made me twitch every single time I came across it. Another bigger thing that irritated me is the lack of research done. If someone is going to use demons, or daemons in a story, at least have the knowledge behind the ones you’re going to use. I saw the same person first referred to as a daemon and then as a demon. They are not the same thing. Just as a male seduction demon is not a succubus, its an incubus. Yet they come across a male seduction demon and when Lilly asks what it is she’s told it’s a Succubus… No.. It’s an Incubus. Research is a vital key to a books success or downfall. Obviously people who are not aware that Succubi can not be anything other female won’t notice the error, but as an author do you really want to give your readers false information? Other than those I spied a few errors here and there nothing drastic. The story itself is an interesting one, but it was unable to hold my attention for very long due to the bigger errors and it took me much longer to finish it then it should have. I found the characters speech to be almost mechanical and robotic. I can understand Tangela, Batya, Derdekea, and even Seth and Samil speaking without the use of contractions, but I know not a single teenager or young adult in our modern times that would say “do not in lieu of don’t or they are instead of they’re”. With this in mind, I believe this story while it has a ton of potential to be amazing, again, the over all story line is definitely amazing. Please don’t get me wrong, This story has so much potential that even despite the big issues, I still had to finish it. The storyline is well thought out and put together beautifully, and if it wasn’t for the three things I mentioned earlier, I’d have given this book a 5. However, due to the lack of research on some of the main evil doers and the robotic, almost forced like speech of the main characters, mixed with its inability to hold my attention, I give this book 2 of 5 paws. cusreviews Freaky Fiction Writing Author/PR/Promoter Cu’s Ebook Giveaways Founder Fae Books Tour Host/Reviewer LadyAmber’s Book Tours Host B3 Book Tours Host I Am A Reader Not A Writer Blog Tour Host Shades of Rose Marketing Tour Host GWR Tour Host As You Wish Tour Host Mrs. Potter’s Book Publicity Services
