That's right, we get to delve into his psyche! I can only hope that we will get continued glimpses in the third and final installment, Destiny's Wrath! All I can say, you better be prepared to pick your jaw up off the ground! I was capsized by a rogue wave, and that is how I will equate it: Then once you finally surface, you are left gasping for air trying to find your equilibrium.
The wheels in your head will be constantly spinning as new aspects are laid out in front of you.
You lean to one side, then maybe start to lean to the other. You will have no idea who to believe or how it will end! The emotions are also more raw, almost gritty. And that is all I will say about the plot! Nancy Straight is an exceptional author that goes above and beyond any expectations. She successfully ensnares the readers attention, never relinquishing the hold until you have the the last book in your hands, ready to shun the world and continue the adventure of Lauren and Max.
Apr 18, Emily rated it really liked it Shelves: Now, I'm more in love with them. Nancy Straight wrote an amazing second book to her Destiny Trilogy that left me wanting more. Two years have passed. Lauren is just waking up from a coma. Max isn't around and Lauren is heartbroken. Her home is now a retirement center and it's there where she meets an old man who will forever change her Destiny. Upon waking from a coma, Lauren learns that Max left her.
The only explanation she receives is that the doctors never thought she would wake and told him to move on. So, he did the only thing he could He thinks everything is his fault and throws himself in harms way to overcome his guilt. Sadly, she has no way of getting a hold of him. However, she is slowly learning how to use the gift she was given when she broke the binds that held her.
So much of this book was spent with Max and Lauren separated, which I liked. We got to know them a little in Meeting Destiny, but not to the extent we do now. With their separation came some negative outcomes, but that is what was foretold. Their separation would only cause bad things to happen and they are better together. In Meeting Destiny, we were introduced to one of many people who influence choices.
Now we get to know a few more of those people, but we are never told which side or who specifically "the bad guy" is. Destiny's Revenge provides the reader with multiple perspectives and ideas of who that person is. In the end, I was have issues deciding who was good and who was bad. Overall, Destiny's Revenge is a well written second addition to the trilogy. If you enjoyed Meeting Destiny, you need to read book two. Feb 21, Charlayne rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Recommended to Charlayne by: Nancy Strange has done it again. Destiny's Revenge is a fantastic book, longer, stronger, and full of the twists and turns I've come to expect from her stories.
This book picked up where Meeting Destiny, the first of the series, stopped. Lauren Davis is recovering from the attack while she was camping with her boyfriend, Max. When she wakes up from the coma, it's two years later and Max is in Afghanistan as a corpsman, having given up on her coming out of the coma. I won't give the rest of the sto Nancy Strange has done it again. I won't give the rest of the story away but Lauren comes into more of her powers, she learns of a Council that keeps an eye on the destiny of people on earth and a Cabinet of the Council's opposites. For the Counselor of Confidence, there is a Cabinet equal of Doubt.
And a demon who wants Lauren dead, or else. This is a very long, meaty book. It's not a one-day read, it begs to be read slowly and savored. In a word, yes. I laughed, I cried, I screamed at some of the characters, and I sometimes had to put the book down and let the words sink in. I love Destiny's Revenge and I'm giving it five stars. As I have said previously, I'm not into young adult books. This one really isn't young adult, there is some mild sexual discussion in it, so I would say it's not for under at least 15 year olds.
But it is so good, I didn't even notice it was supposed to be a youth book. It's so good, I'm going to go get the third and last book in her series, Destiny's Wrath, and start it soon. If you have not read Meeting Destiny Lauren wakes up and realizes years have passed and the man she loves has left her, believing she will never wake from her coma.
Each day after she is fighting to walk again and busy making friends with one of the residents recovering from hip surgery. Yeah life is good for Lauren She can see others in the present It's a blessing and a curse. Ok, going to stop there and let you read the rest for yourself.
I hate to give away awesome events in a review that will take place in this book. Yes, awesome and yummy events. Oh did that get your attention? This book will be weighing on my mind for several days. Straight is a fabulous author and she really knows how to hook a person. I am officially obsessing over the plot and characters. Nov 10, Sandy rated it it was amazing Shelves: 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 lik Great read. 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?
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? Book to review from the author My Opinion: As soon as the two arrived, I began reading this book. But, how stupid was I!
I love how Lauren evolved so much during the second book. And slowly, but neatly. But I kind of hated how Max and Samael I don't want to included spoilers Destiny's Revenge is full of perilous twists, and holds a great story. Dec 06, Cassie rated it it was amazing. There are only so many words that can describe a book that is so amazing you cannot get it out of your head Nancy Straight has come up with an authentic twist to the paranormal concept and I commend her for it.
I loved that in this book we were able to get Max's perspective on what was going on in his head. Lauren There are only so many words that can describe a book that is so amazing you cannot get it out of your head Lauren and Max's relationship was mind blowing. There were a few sensual scenes in this book, but I loved how the author was able to keep it sweet and romantic without going into strong detail and making it explicit.
Overall, the book is great. Read Meeting Destiny first, in order to the full of effect of everything going on. I assure you that if you love a good paranormal romance, this is the series for you. I cannot wait for the next book in the series and I'm positive it will just as amazing as the first two. Nov 01, Susan rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Awaking from a coma is bad enough Her love has abandanoned her or so it seems?
What's a girl to do? The continuing journey of Lauren, Max and their friends Adding to the controversy and intrigue, Lauren and Max must can now only trust themselves. Once again, Nancy Straight takes us on a splendid ride!
Every turn a surprise. Making us re-think what we thought we knew! Excellent writing and characters. Can't wait for Book 3!! Oct 02, Charles rated it it was amazing.
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 What can I say? I cannot wait for the next book in this series; I know it will be as good, if not better, than its predecessors.
Dec 12, The BookChick rated it it was amazing Shelves: Destiny Delivered J a Marx. This novel is nothing short of riveting. Straight delves into deeper themes of good vs evil and the interconnectedness is that even a word? Two years have passed. Foxglove Summer Ben Aaronovitch. I found while reading her books that sometimes the character actions are not explained until later which is a great touch.
Mar 13, Noetical rated it it was amazing Shelves: I definitely like the second book more than the first as the characters develop and grow. As the story evolves, so does the theme as the author adds new and intriguing complexities to the struggle between good and evil. As such, she requires us to reevaluate which characters are good and which are evil Dec 15, Kris rated it it was amazing Shelves: I never got bored or wondered when we would get back to 'the good stuff' because it was very exciting throughout. I liked that even when things were good, there was a sense of something coming around the corner that kept me from putting the book down.
Really enjoyed both in this series and can't wait for book 3 to be released! Jan 13, marie rated it it was amazing.
Seriously I read both your books yesterday. These were so good. I was totally floored by the outcome of their camping trip. But their reunion so sweet it made my heart just burst. I'm glad I don't have to wait an extreme amount of time for the last book. Two more weeks is still gonna kill me! Oct 27, Melissa rated it it was amazing. 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. Loved this one as well. Soon as I finished the first one went and bought this one.
Two days none stop reading. Never knew what was coming. 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.
