I picked up Kelly Abells book as I saw it on a forum and wanted to be able to give myself and my grandchildren something fun to read and yet have it believeable...I always read first for content and just thought how wonderful this story was and how creative the writer...
Destiny is a young girl who was suddenly touched by tragedy. In a car accident that claimed her mother, father and baby brother she is taken from her rather elite home and moves to a trailer with a grandmother she never knew.

She is thrown into turmoil of being new in town, and wanting to make friends and ends up enemies with the "rich and spoiled" Amy who bellieves she wants her boyfriend Jake.

The story is about destiny finding herself, learning to deal with who she is and the evil that surrounds Amy and her family...The supernatural theme was written well, all characters were believable and being from the area Ms Abell writes about...I felt "there"

My grandson has started reading the story...I think he and his friends will love it as much as I did...Cudos Ms Abell...a story for all generations...

Haunted Destiny is a young adult paranormal romance written by Kelly Abell. While I have never read Kelly's work previously I was familiar with her name in regards to her suspense, Sealed In Lies. After reading Haunted Destiny I was quite surprised to find that she had never written in this genre before.

After losing her parents to a car accident, Destiny goes to live with her Grandmother. She runs into many of the obstacles that teenagers would today, but Destiny has more to contend with that just that. She has special gifts that her Gram offers to help her better understand. As the book progresses more people are affected by evil and it is up to Destiny to save them from the forces that have taken over.

Haunted Destiny was an extremely well written book. From the beginning of this book there was constantly something intriguing me and forcing me to continue turning the pages. This is a book I not only would recommend to anyone who loves a great story, but I hope this isn't the last paranormal we see from Kelly Abell. It was a treat to read.

Haunted Destiny really pulled me in from the beginning; the characters came alive and the emotions and dialogues were especially well done. Destiny's nightmares over the car wreck that killed her family and her guilt over not being able to save her baby brother brought tears to my eyes. Her struggles to overcome this heartache and desire to fit in were realistic and well constructed. I thoroughly enjoyed this book, and as the suspense was building I couldn't wait to find out what happened next. The writing style did remind me a little of of Traci Hall's Rhiannon Godfrey series (only I think this book is actually better!) so if you liked that series, I think you will really like this book as well. I hope there is another Destiny book in the future!

Haunted Destiny is a well written YA that I didn't have to worry about my children reading the pages. A great ghost story with oomph.

Haunted Destiny refers to the heroine, Destiny Dove, who has survived a car wreck that killed her parents and brother. Without any other relatives, Destiny winds up living with her eccentric grandmother in a strange town. Destiny soon discovers her Grnadmother and her share a unique gift.

Haunted Destiny is filled with intriguing tale of ghosts (my favorite) and teenage angst. A great, light read that is truly enjoyable.

Destiny Dove was lucky enough to survive the car accident that claimed the lives of her parents and baby brother. Now she finds herself living in a small trailer with a grandmother she doesn't know. Making new friends in a small town isn't easy - especially when your grandmother is the town Medium. When strange things begin to happen, Destiny has no choice but to accept that she's inherited her grandmother's gifts.

A dark entity has entered town, attacking people close to it. Attached to a set of furniture, it's been set loose on an unsuspecting family. To make matters worse, the furniture belongs to Amy, the popular girl in town. Amy doesn't believe in ghosts, but it's either believe in spirits or believe she's losing her mind when a ghost begins to appear to her on a regular basis.

While the first chapter or two was a little rough, the story smoothed out a few chapters in, leading into an intriguing tale of ghosts, jealousy, and teen love. The characters of Destiny, Jake, and Grams Rose were likeable. And of course what would a teen story be without the super popular girl we all love to hate? While Amy's character comes across as snobby and cruel, there are times you can't help but feel sorry for her. The characters were all well developed, even the secondary ones. You could tell the author put some thought into the storyline. That being said, there were some rough POV transistions in a few places that detracted from the story a little, along with repetition, mostly about the car accident and Destiny's guilt.

Overall, I would say that Haunted Destiny is worth the read. I would gladly pick up another of Ms. Abell's YA books should she ever decide to write one.
