It is very rare that I don't finish a book and while it is no longer impossible for me to do, it is still very difficult. I have no doubt that one of the reasons I was able to make this a DNF read was because I had recently read its prequel and many of the problems I had with this book I had also had with that one. While I did make myself finish DESTINY DIVIDED, Book 1 in the Shadows of Destiny series, I accepted halfway through DESTINY UNITED that this series and its heroines are obviously not for me and there was no point in my continuing.

HEROINE, Erin / Aila (21):
DESTINY UNITED is about Erin / Aila Bolton, the younger (foster) sister of Sage Peterson, the heroine in DESTINY DIVIDED. Erin is setup as being the opposite of Sage personality-wise, however what she is supposed to be according to descriptions of her (what we're told) and how she actually is (what we're shown) are two very, very different things. Erin As She's Told is a timid nice-girl with an anxiety disorder and a reliance on alcohol to cope with her illness. She suffers from panic attacks when she has to go into a new place and/or be around people whom she does not know. She does not trust easily because of her unstable upbringing, and a traumatic event in her youth made her even more distrustful of men in particular. She is smart, nice, well-behaved, and always wanting to please people. You get the idea, right?

Now, let's compare her with Erin As She's Shown. This Erin initially gets nervous going alone into a bar filled with people, she does it and manages to be calm enough to flirt with a group of guys so that she can get them to buy her drinks. Other than that, we're not shown any addiction-battling or proof of this supposed dependence.

Destiny United is a non-stop roller coaster ride of romance, suspense, danger and fun! The twists and turns will keep you guessing until the very end, and the romance will leave you hot, bothered and ready for more!

Erin suffers from terrible panic attacks that control her life. Marcelo has spent his entire vampire existence searching for his long lost wife. When Erin's sister sends Marcelo to retrieve Erin and safely bring her to the Underworld he agrees. Little did they know that the moment they meet will change their live forever.

Marcelo vows to protect Erin on the journey to the Underworld - even as their enemies descend on them. Marcelo soon finds himself wondering who is going to save him for she has a hold on his heart like no other. Erin is scared of everything yet with Marcelo by her side she learns to face her fears, but is Marcelo the one she should be afraid of? With past lives and secrets threatening to tear them apart and a future filled with prophecy and uncertainty, will their love be enough to stand against their enemies or will their past and their fears cause them to lose everything they love...including each other?

This book will keep you racing through the pages as you join Erin and Marcelo on their journey of love, betrayal, self-discovery, and danger. Destiny United is a must-read for every paranormal romance fan!

After the first book I had high expectations of Shaw and she didn't disappoint. Marcelo is a hulky alpha vamp who can bite my neck any day of the week. He's sent on a mission by his Queen Shade to retrieve her sister and escort her back to the underworld. Marcelo isn't happy about it but reluctantly obeys, thinking it will be a quick smash and grab. When Marcelo comes for her, Erin starts off afraid and a little oblivious to the world she's about to be thrown into, but quickly adapts to become a very strong heroine. A world of fairies, werewolves, and sorcerers...no problem. Managing a surly vampire? Now that's a challenge.

This is the second in the series but it stands alone very well. The writing flows wonderfully and the characters are well developed.

Can't wait for book three! :D

I hate leaving mediocre or negative reviews. I do. My problem with "Destiny United" was not so much the writers voice- She's a good writer- it's the writers choices. There were too many contradictions, these three being the biggest to me-

1) Erin has serious issues. She's borderline agoraphobic and was, at one point, raped. Okay then she's an agoraphobic rape victim that goes out drinking in order to be able to be social... she refused to go into a convenience store for a moment but she goes into a busy, loud bar and gets tanked? I don't think so.
2) She rebels just for the simple sake of rebelling. Okay, that seems fairly prevalent in these stories so whatever- but (and this ties in with #1) she refused to go into a store for five minutes because she was so scared of being in a social setting and people looking at her, so she ran across the street to a bar where she had a bunch of guys hitting on her. Um yeah...which ties into #3
3) She freely admits she gets boyfriends so they will take care of her. How did she get these boyfriends (the ones that take care of her) in the first place? How did they meet?

None of this made any sense. I WISH I could give this book a better review, but I can't.
