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.

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!

STORY BRIEF:
This is told in first person by Scout, a high school senior, valedictorian. She considers herself odd looking. Alex and his older brother move to town. Alex is a senior and gorgeous. He stares at Scout. Scout's stepbrother Jase hates Alex for some unknown reason and tells Scout to avoid him. She tries to avoid him, but it's hard because they have classes and school activities together.

Scout has loved Charlie all her life, although they never turned it into a boyfriend-girlfriend thing. Now Scout finds herself also falling for Alex. She learns that Alex is a wolf shape shifter, and she begins learning more about that world.

REVIEWER'S OPINION:
Refreshing dialogue! This is rare! Many, many times I was chuckling out loud. Read this for the author's conversation style, her voice, whatever you want to call it. It's not that she's being an obvious comedian. The humor is more about the unexpected or subtle. Below are three examples.

"I wanted to go lie down next to him. I wanted to feel his arms wrapped around me and discover what his lips taste like. I wanted to tell him I had been secretly in love with him since I was two years old. So, I did the only thing I could do. I hit him in the head with Guido, my sock monkey."

She was lost in the woods during a storm and thought she might die. She heard her name being called and felt her body being lifted off the ground. She is thinking it must be the Angel of Death lifting her. "Apparently, he decided if I wasn't going to get up and follow him to Heaven, he would just carry me through the Pearly Gates. Of course, that was assuming I was going to Heaven.

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.
