Book Description

Scout Donovan is a girl who believes in rules, logic, and her lifelong love of Charlie Hagan. Alex Cole believes in destiny, magic, and Scout. When Alex introduces Scout to the world of Shifters, men who change into wolves or coyotes during the full moon and Seers, women who can see your most private thoughts and emotions with a mere touch, the knowledge changes everything and everyone Scout thought she knew.

"Really fantastic!" -Ann Aguirre, National Bestselling Author

"Smart, fun and original." -Letters Inside Out

"Incredibly well written and addicting; action, danger and romance fill every page." -A Simple Love of Reading

"A little Joss Whedon mixed in with some Libba Bray." -KidLitFrenzy

5.0 out of 5 stars Check Yes, YA. March 18, 2011
Format:Paperback
Taking a much-loved genre and reworking it--in a way that is both innovative and amusing--is both very difficult, and highly in demand (especially in young adult literature). You've seen it in fairy-tale retellings (ever since Robin McKinley kicked things off); now, get ready to see it in Supernatural Romance.

Supernatural Romance has its structure (normal teen meets mysterious teen, discovers magic, enter third party--for the purposes of a love-triangle), just as Fairytale does (prince/princess, evil magical being, and breaking an enchantment). And you may think that, by now, you've seen all the Supernatural Romance genre has to offer (because, honestly, if you see another Stephanie-Meyer-wannabe-bishie-vampire, you might just jump off a cliff. Well, think again!

In place of Heroine Generica, you have Scout, a rural girl with her feet planted firmly on the ground, and a wit to match her strongly-held beliefs in logic and reason. In place of New York, San Francisco, or one of those cliche small towns (that was obviously written by someone who'd never lived in a small town), Destiny Binds is set in rural Western Kentucky, nestled between sports-obsessed Marshall County, and the Land Between the Lakes State Park (a refreshingly original setting that Tammy Blackwell makes great use of, pulling readers into a setting so real--and amusing--they can feel it). Add seers, a likable and well-developed cast of characters (to quote the author, "It's time the teens in YA literature were actually like the teens who read YA literature."), territorial shapeshifters, and an amusingly witty voice, to the mix, and you one heck of a fun novel.

Destiny Binds, is one of those impossible-to-put-down books that leaves you with just enough questions to make you long for a sequal without leaving you so many points unanswered you want to murder the author. To sum it up: Great setting, lovable cast, and a pure fun. Check yes!

3.0 out of 5 stars Loved it until the end... September 22, 2011
By Sussya
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really liked the characters. I loved Scout. She wasn't one of those idiot heroines that seem to be populating all the YA novels lately. She had a good head on her shoulders, and she didn't make stupid decisions that made you want to strangle her halfway through. I loved Alex. He was a great love interest. I really liked that he wasn't an over-protective idiot that wouldn't allow Scout to make decisions on her own in the beginning, only to become sappy and pathetic halfway through. That happens A LOT in YA also. Talley was lots of fun and very likeable, too. I even enjoyed Jase and Charlie. I really did love the characters, and wanted to keep reading to find out more of their story.

The problem came about 90% of the way through the book. I felt like the author rushed the ending, and just threw together the rest of the plot in a few pages. I HATED that the author made the whole thing a huge cliffhanger. I hate when authors don't finish the story, just so you'll pick up the next book to find out what happens. Each book should be able to be independent of the others. They should compliment each other and fit together well, but cliffhanger books are a huge pet peeve of mine. If you feel similarly, you won't like this book.

There were quite a few errors in the Kindle version, and that was annoying. I could overlook those because the book was $.99. I couldn't forgive the ending, though. I'm unsure whether or not I'll pick up the sequel.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great dialogue July 23, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
Characters

Scout is a sarcastic, unpopular high school senior who doesn't let much bother her. She uses her dry humor and carefree attitude to get through life.

Alex Cole is a friendly, sweet and good looking guy, who also happens to be a werewolf in love with Scout Donovan.

Jase is Scout's overprotective popular jock of a step-brother. Jase and Scout are very close, but his secrets are beginning to cause some serious brother-sister conflict.

Charlie is Jase's cousin with whom Scout has been in love with for as long as she can remember. Charlie is in my opinion a rather undeveloped character for playing such a large role in the story.

Talley is Scout's chubby but beautiful socially-awkward best friend, who unbeknownst to scout has quite the secret of her own.

Plot

The plot is without-a-doubt cliche, as werewolves and the like are such a done and done again topic. However I didn't mind this, as the story itself did a good job of keeping me reading. If you're going to do something that's been overdone, it's important to make sure it's worth the read. I believe Blackwell has done this with her clever characters and attention-grabbing story ending.

The ending was heart-breaking and I definitely shed a tear. However, Blackwell did an excellent job of at the very end, leaving me with a sliver of hope. This was an excellent method to make readers want to read more, and I myself cannot wait for the next book.

Design

The looks of the book itself are unimpressive. The cover is average at best and I probably wouldn't have given it a second look while browsing through reading options. However, the back-story of the cover, which can be read at the end of the book, is rather sweet.

5.0 out of 5 stars Realistic fantasy July 3, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed this book! Scout is a believable and likeable person. She's smart and makes realistic choices, so that you feel like the story is unfolding naturally. I love the plot and am looking forward to a next book.
I'm also pleased that it was well edited and my reading rhythm didn't stutter over incorrect words, spelling or punctuation. As another review stated, it was much better than I had a right to expect for a 99 cent book.
