The second book in this series left the main character, Desi, in an impossible situation where there was little hope of her body or soul being rescued. Now we finally get to find out her fate. What a great ending to a fantastic story, not only of love and sacrifice, but of making difficult choices. Ali Cross did such a great job bringing the characters to life and making you feel like you were in the story. Well done. Can't wait to see what she writes next.

I received this ARC copy to give an honest review. I have to say this was my favorite read out of the whole series! Where can I start with Destined! Desi is trapped below the depths of hell, and she is feeling lost! Desi is to become so much more but she doesn't give her self the credit she deserves! Just because she is the daughter of Loki doesn't mean she can not be good, but she does not see it that way. She sees herself always putting those she cares about in harms way, and she always feels down on herself. This has been a journey from hell and back literally for Desi, but will love and friendship conquer all? Michael will stop at nothing to get Desi back, he has a love for her unlike any other. She is his other half, and he will take the good and the bad within her. But he can not go to hell to save her as he is made of light! James gets delivered a message to help save Desi, and of course he takes this mission but with him taking it and meeting the Ferryman. He gets more than he bargains for and let me say I truly felt sorry for James. You get different POV's from Michael, Desi, and James, so the story kind of bounces around but it all comes together perfectly! We get a good look into what caused all of this mess to happen in the first place which I thought was actually really good for the story. And you get the back story of Loki who is Desi's father and what caused him to be who he is today. There was a lot of war talk within the book, and I found myself at times a bit confused but when I re-read the parts I got it. I liked the description of Desi, Gardians, and the Valkyries falling from Earth! That was amazing and I could actually see that image in my mind and it made me think of falling stars. I loved how throughout the whole story you find love, with the different couples. James and Miri have a love that is just so darn sweet and you can tell they are made for each other! The love that Fahria and Longinus finally bring to the surface is so very sweet. But the love that Michael and Desi have for each other is like no other. My Favorite quote made by Michael: "You are like a lioness, beautiful and glorious, but fierce. And just as a lion loves his mate he also knows she is grater than he." If you want a book that is dark, but there is light at the end of the tunnel, you are wanting a battle that is like no other, love, friendship. One finally learning who she is to Become! Than go and pick up this book and the other two in this series!

The third book in the Desolation series, titled 'Destined' written by Ali Cross travels through Desolation's torments as she finds herself, and follows her decisions concerning what she wants to Become. Her love for Michael is challenged as she finds herself in situations where she needs to confront her feelings and make firm choices, which define not only her future, but also the future of the different worlds. In 'Destined', Desolation also finds the love of her mother and discovers her heritage as she battles many foes, finding true friendship in her future. An interesting paranormal love story where the reader connects with the characters and the storyline.

(Source: I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis. Thanks to author Ali Cross!) This is book 3 in the Desolation series.**Warning – some unavoidable spoilers for books 1 and 2** Desi is gone, held prisoner in depths of hell – in fact lower even than hell – chained to the rocks above which Ygdrasyll (hell) was built, with only the genii for company. It’s up to Michael, the hallowed, and Desi’s friends to rescue her. But a being of light can’t go into hell, and her hell hounds are unable to break the bonds that restrain her. It seems that James must be the one to free her. Can James free Desi? Will they escape from hell unscathed? What of the war that is about to break out? I found it a bit difficult to get into this instalment; a lot of the beginning was from Michael and then James’ point of view, and I much prefered Desi’s point of view. There was a lot about the war in this book. It felt like the book was focused more on the war and what was going on than anything else. This was probably to be expected in the last book of a trilogy where there is a war breaking out, I felt exactly the same way about the third book in the hunger games trilogy, but still, war isn’t really my thing and I found it a little difficult to keep up with what was going on. Once we got back to Desi and Michael things were much better, but I was still a little lost with all the battle talk. James’ trip to free Desi was interesting, and I was very wary when he promised to return a favour for the ferryman – alarm bells ringing here! I also liked the part where Desi discovered some things about both herself and her mother, and I liked the way the story ended. Overall; not my favourite of the series, but still worth reading. 6.5 out of 10.
