This is my personal review without spoilers of the actual plot.
In Destined, the forces of Light and Dark collide as their epic struggle focuses on Tulsa’s House of Night. Zoey is home where she belongs, safe with her Guardian Warrior, Stark, by her side – and preparing to face off against Neferet. Kalona has released his hold on Rephaim, and, through Nyx’s gift of a human form, he and Stevie Rae are finally able to be together – if Rephaim can truly walk the path of the Goddess and stay free of his father’s shadow.
But is Zoey really safe? Does she truly know those who are closest to her? And will love win when it is tested by the very soul of Darkness?
What a roller-coaster ride this book was. Once you finally see an opening to good times and happiness, something terrible happens that ruins any chance of a good ending. What a cruel book.
Every time you feel a bit of hope and excitement, it’s ripped away like a Band-Aid. It really was doom and gloom.
The characters development is great and matched the story perfectly. I love how the people in Zoey’s group has become more important to the story. They aren’t just annoying brats but on par with our main character.
I love the portrait of issues between the good and darkness it was especially important in this ninth book. I’m not sure if this sounds weird but it’s as if the authors changed as well, because the content seem more thought out and developed.
I’m still not a fan of having chapters dedicated to different characters and it seems there’s more chapters focusing on uninteresting people rather than the main characters.
It’s definitely still worth a read and it’s going to be exciting to read the next books.
It’s still a vampire fiction with lots of love going on – but it’s darker now and is sure to keep the elder audience entertained as well.
