My Copy: Ebook from Author
Gabriella and Darron thought their magickal battle was over when they defeated the evil warlock, Richard. When her Aunt Donna seeks Gabriella's help in rescuing her catatonic daughter from the Dark Coven, Gabriella discovers that her cousin holds a power within her that would be catastrophic in the hands of the evil witches. Gabriella's coven sets out on a journey that may be their last. Along the way, they meet new allies, face devastating treachery, and battle not only the Dark Coven, but the darkness within themselves. When Gabriella finally comes face to face with the cousin she never knew existed, her true destiny is unveiled, and the fate of the mortal world is in her hands.
So I realized why I couldn’t really get into the first book Destiny…it was because it DeLuca was setting up the readers for the second book (or at least that is what I think.) In Destiny Unveiled, you learn so much more about the characters that were introduced in book one. I found that I felt more of an emotional connection between Gabby and Darron not only with their characters in the book but my connection with the characters as well. To me, the characters were real people this time around; you got to know a lot more about them.
Plus, there was a ton more action and drama throughout the plot. Life did not become all sugar and spice once Richard was defeated in Destiny. In fact, that was the least hardest thing that DeLuca has put these characters through.
I applaud DeLuca for bringing in so many twists and turn into a book without it being too much for a reader to handle. It was a steady read of ‘oh, that just happened,’ ‘oh, my!’ and ‘I didn’t see that coming.’
