The gift is two necklaces, a golden Sun for Jack and a golden Earth for Maddie. The card with the gift reads: ""The earth will revolve around the sun, until that time when the sun is done. Then, the revolutions will be none as their great power becomes one.""
Before the card can be explained, three intruders burst into the house; there is a battle that shocks Jack and Maddie as a wave of a hand tosses objects and people about the house. One man, the leader of the intruders, who Benny calls Tardon, steps forward and imprisons the twins' parents in a giant bubble. When Tardon turns his attention to the twins, Benny disappears with them.
Benny has brought the twins to his home and explains to them that there are different realms of existence, the non-magical, the dream realm, the thought realm, and the magical realm. He explains that they are wizards from the magical realm and that Tardon wishes to control all the realms, but interfering with the balance could cause the destruction of the world. but it has divided the magical realm.

As the twins continue on their quest to find their family, Jack and Maddie are separated. Jack gets angry and tells Benny that he holds him responsible for Maddie's safety and if Benny doesn't bring her home, then Jack will find her on his own. He then vanishes, ending book one in the Destiny Trilogy.

Destiny Revealed peaked my interest from the start. There was a bit of a mystery from the start that quickly escalated which kept me turning the pages. The main characters were well developed but some kept me wondering about their true intentions throughout the story. The story was very good and set up the background of the characters well. I loved diving into the author’s version of the world of wizardry and the various realms that exist. Destiny Revealed is packed with adventure while doing an excellent job laying the ground work for the series. I am really excited to see what happens next in Book Two, Path’s of Destiny.
Cris Pasqueralle’s DESTINY REVEALED is an outstanding book on a multitude of levels! What makes this book so incredible is that kids, young adults, adults, and parents alike will all enjoy this epic fantasy read. In all honesty, I see this as the next up-and-coming HARRY POTTER and PERCY JACKSON. Yes, it’s THAT good! Cris Pasqueralle’s masterful writing style is captivating from the very beginning. You latch on to the two main characters, Jack and Maddie, before the adventure even begins. Twins, Jack and Maddie, have very different yet complementary personalities. Maddie is more of the quick thinker and the brains, you’ll instantly love her smart character and relate to her. Jack is an action-loving boy who is always up for an adventure. Together - they will tackle some incredible challenges and rely on each other to brave the new world they discover. 13 is a powerful number and an even more powerful year. Most people make a big deal out of 13th birthdays - but Jack and Maddie’s 13th is in a whole different realm of “coming-of-age.” This is a powerful, intense, imaginative, and refreshing children’s fantasy book. I highly recommend this one to parents who are looking for ways to bond with their children and/or get their kids into reading. Cris Pasqueralle’s writing style is spot-on and downright astonishing. His ability to craft such a great story that’s enjoyable for all ages is extremely rare! The writing is visual and descriptive beyond compare. I found myself captivated in a whole new, previously unimaginable, world surrounding by characters I grew to care about as I do my friends. His extraordinary ability to build character depth and development is previously unmatched by any other book of its genre that I’ve read; and trust me I’ve read a lot! The plot moves steadily at a rate that perfect for children and adults alike; you certainly won’t get bored or let this book fall by the wayside. Once you begin, you won’t want to stop reading! This is a promising and riveting beginning to a sure to be fantastic series!.I can hardly wait for the next one. DESTINY REVEALED is sure to grab the attention of weathered readers and new readers alike. This book has it has; character depth, plot twists, action, suspense, evil wizards, and hours upon hours of entertainment! Honestly, what more could you ask for?
