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!
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.
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.
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.
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.Read more ›
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.
