Overview

There was no reason for Lauren to be in a coma. Her physical injuries had healed, but she had been non-responsive for so long that her doctors told her family and Max to move on. She awoke to find her life in a shambles; the man she loved was gone, her friends had moved on with their lives, and her family was ripped apart by her accident. No one knew of the evil forces watching, waiting for her in the shadows, in the lonely corners, even in the eyes of those she loved. Lauren needed to reclaim her destiny, to get her life back; the last thing she ever expected was Destiny’s Revenge.

Destiny's Revenge is the second book in Nancy Straight's Destiny series. I LOVED this book. A lot of my questions from book one were answered but more questions were raised leaving a terrific opening for Straight's third book. I really felt like the author grew as a writer from book one to this book. She really brought her A game!!! I was wholly impressed with her writing style as well as the character development. I also loved that we got two different POV's. In book one, we only got the heroin, Lauren's, POV. This time around, we also got an added bonus of having Max's POV to read from. That was a terrific switch up in my opinion. I think the author added a little something special to the events happening around Max and Lauren by giving us an insight into Max's POV as well as Lauren's. I also really liked that, throughout book one and half way through book two, you are left feeling that you know whats happening with the two sides, the Counsel and the Cabinet. But then the author totally switches things around and you're not sure who the good guys are or who the bad guys are. I really liked that. I left me wondering and it also left me thinking about the characters, the story line as well as the event that had led up to that point in the story. I also really fell in love with both the heroin and hero this go around. In book one, I liked Lauren and Max, but I was also a little put off by some of their action. In this book, I could really feel their struggles and my heart ached for both of them. I would definitely suggest this book to anyone who likes a great story with great characters. I was impressed with the turn this book takes from book one and Im really looking forward to getting my hands on book three to finish out this fantastic story!

Picking up where we left off, Lauren has woken up from the coma she was in for two years following her "bear attack". She is going through physical therapy and Max is in Afghanistan serving as a corpsman. Lauren has inherited the power of "sight" from her fight with the beast. She is able to leave her body and travel to where she wants to. She checks on Max in the desert saving a fellow soldier and waiting for rescue. While recuperating from the coma she makes friends Joe, with an elderly gentleman that is recovering from hip surgery. Joe tells her he is getting a visitor and later comes to find her to introduce her to his grandson who is none other then....wait for it....MAX. Yay! So if you want to know what happens next, quit looking at my review and get your own copy! I enjoyed this book even more then the first. Just when you are complacent, everything takes another turn. There is never a dull moment in the book and once again the book ends on another cliffhanger. Have Destiny's Wrath handy....

Great read. Just when you think that things will calm down, something else gets thrown into the mix and you are in for another joy ride. Lauren's life will never be the same and she has come to accept it but the cast of characters in this second book just goes to show how twisted Lauren's life has become. Max thinks he can be the prince in shinning armor and rescue Lauren and be her everything but in the real world it doesn't quite work out to be that way. In fact, I don't think Lauren would like it that way either. Love the drama and love the conflicting cast of characters. What will happen next? Will Max stand by Lauren? An exorcism ? I guess we shall see. Nancy's style of writing has a way of surprising the reader when you least expect it. I found while reading her books that sometimes the character actions are not explained until later which is a great touch. Sometimes while reading I am thinking "what are you doing? are you insane?" These occur at times when the drama is unexpected and I enjoy these little surprises.(less)

The story line follows nicely after the first book. It keeps you thinking about choices, how the characters develop, how your decisions affects not only you but does around you. Please keep writting.

Meeting Destiny was an interesting tale of a young woman coming of age and recognizing her gift of clarivoyance. Destiny's Revenge picks up the saga after Lauren's awakening from a two year coma. She wakes to a very different reality where family and friendshave seemingly moved on without her. Seth is with Amanda and Max has enlisted as a Corpsman in the Navy. She also discovers that she has awakened with a gift from her captor, the Beast. She now has the gift of sight which could be used to destroy him. Together with Max and assisted by Rewsna they work to foil the plans of the Beast and lead to his distruction. I actually enjoyed this book more than I did Meeting Destiny. I felt for Max and Lauren because they had so much adversity in their fledgling relationship that it just didn't seem as if they would make it. It was interesting reading the interplay between them. Lauren's strength of character as a heroine was amazing. She knew what her gift was and she decided to use it to help others, no matter the cost to herself, and even at times, her relationship with Max. The pace was faster and Lauren's "powers" are more advanced in this book. Ms. Straight once again did an exemplary job conveying and unique and engaging story.

Nancy Straight is a self-published YA writer of the Destiny Series. A wonderful follow-up to Meeting Destiny, this book takes the reader on an emotional roller coaster as you follow more of Max and Lauren's search for a "normal" life. I was roped in from the beginning and just could not put this book down. This is a must read for every YA lover. Now, hurry up January 2012 so I can read some more in the Destiny series. Give Nancy a chance, I promise you will not be disappointed!!!

What can I say? This is a wonderful addition to the Destiny Series. Nancy Straight does it again. The characters draw you in from the beginning and keep you engrossed in their tale until the final page (at which point you are wishing for more). One cannot help feel for Lauren and Max and their struggle to lead normal, happy lives. As their adventure continues from the pages of Meeting Destiny, the reader is once again cheering their love on as they struggle against new enemies and evil. I cannot wait for the next book in this series; I know it will be as good, if not better, than its predecessors.

This is the second book from this Author that I have read. I have to say that I love the Story line that runs through this book. I like how Nancy has taken the "There is more than one side to a story." And actually changes the view from the leading lady to the leading man. I am Highly anticipating the third that I know is on the way. Keep writing Nancy keep writing.
