I was given a copy of Destiny by Laura DeLuca in exchange for an honest review. I absolutely loved this wonderful story. The cover of this book was absolutely beautiful and the white rose was deplicted in the story. It was well developed and fast paced. Laura took her time in creating each and everyone of her characters. The characters of Gabriella, Darron, Flora, Shelly and Monte were so intense that you were able to feel their emotions and couldn't help but love them. Gabriella is still living with the ghost and tragedy of the death of her mother. Although it happened years ago the killers were never caught and she never knew why she was killed then she had to live daily with a drunk father. Darron was a adopted child who was afraid to follow his hearts desire which was Gabriella because he was hiding a secret about himself and he felt that it wasn't fair to involve her. Monte was hiding his own secrets. Darron is brought into a situation from the spirit world and it brings the whole gang in to save the friends. Gabriella learns a lot of who she is and about her mother and her death. Through this Darron also finds out a startlingly fact that is brought to light that could bring his world to a crashing halt. I am definitely looking forward to book 2 Destiny Unveiled in order to carry on with this journey with these wonderful characters. Thank you so much for this fast paced and entertaining story.
I loved this book! I couldn't put it down! I can't wait to read the next book!!
I have written this review like, 3 times already. First one on my phone, then it broke down and I wrote it once again… And my phone broke for the second time. Hi, I’m the lucky one. So here’s the third review – that’s why it took me so long. I haven’t fangirled over a book so much since I read Harry Potter for the first time. Writing a review for this one is just hard as there WASN’T A SINGLE THING I didn’t like. No cons, only pros. Let’s start with an amazing writing style – this one has it. It makes you blend into Destiny. It’s not so-sophisticated-that-you-need-to-read-it-with-dictionary. It’s simple but somehow beautiful. Dialogues are natural and witty. I marked my favorite quotes and I’ll show you a few of them. Characters are simply loveable and real. Nothing more to say. Laura handles a lot of topics… Easily. Want a list? Homosexuality, alcoholism, rape, sex (everything PG), murder, cancer, orphans, religion, friendship… So many topics and everything was developed and described perfectly. I’m a Christian and this book is full of wiccan magic, but I wasn’t bothered at all. There is a part about Gabby’s Christian friend dealing with her magick, too. I have one big problem with YA books – they seem too predictable for me usually. Plain. Simple. Name it how you want. Not this one. The plot has a lot of twists which keeps you concerned until LAST WORDS ON THE LAST PAGE. Literally. This is one of my favorite books ever. Now, I suggest you spend a funny amount of money, 0.99$ on Destiny ebook. Yes, 0.99$ on PURE AWESOMNESS. You won’t regret it.
In”Destiny” we meet Darron and Gabriella and their friends who eventually make up their coven, even though they are mortal. Darron and Gabriella are witches, although it takes a while for Gabriella to admit it to herself or anyone else. During this story they face an evil witch who is trying to convert them to evil or kill them, and boy is there a whopper of a twist in this novel.. well several but one that totally came out of left field. This series has a little bit of everything for everyone. There is fantasy, adventure, mystery, intrigue, romance, sex (okay only a little and it’s totally PG), and just fun. Oh, and I forgot to mention the totally hot men. So a couple of them are gay, they are still hot and not all of them are gay. And for the men, gorgeous women. Hmmm, did I mention the hot men?? I give these stories a definite 5 out of 5 clouds. The perfect summer (or winter) read. This product or book may have been distributed for review; this in no way affects my opinions or reviews.
I bought this for my niece and she liked it so much, she lent it to a friend, who in turn lent it to another friend. It's all they talked about at my niece's birthday dinner party. I am next in line to read it. The girls are looking for the next book. I think it's a hit.
