I really loved the concept for the plot of Destine, especially the setting, the range and build-up of action and the sweetness of the romance. The protagonist, Michelle, is a likeable character who in many ways is the epitome of normalcy. This really helps the reader relate to her character and cheer from the side lines as she progresses and develops so beautifully.
There are many curve balls thrown Michelle’s way, some are a complete shock, some are simply heartbreaking, and all are most definitely well-constructed and developed in the narrative. What is a notable achievement with the novel Destine is that it’s not laced with spelling and grammatical errors. This is so very refreshing; it allowed me to really become enraptured in the characters and their journeys.
I really enjoyed this novel from start to finish. There were a few times that I questioned Michelle’s reaction to the situations that she found herself in, yet I was able to talk myself into a justification and reasons for her responses. I highly recommend this book to YA paranormal, fantasy & romance enthusiasts.
