Let's talk about Winter. I didn't very much like the character of Winter, with whom Maria is traveling with while on Corateda. Winter thinks a bit too much of herself, throws childish fits, and often one gets the feeling that she doesn't care deeply for friends or in a real cause. Maria is unsure if Winter is going to be dedicated to the mission or not. Like I said, I, like Maria, didn't really like Winter... until we reach a very pivotal part of the story! Maria is just about to completely give up on solving the clues she has on finding the lost prince, when Winter grows up a little and actually offers encouragement in the fight. That might have just been my favorite moment.
Although, there also is the epic desert battle opposing the USF, which is another amazing moment. That was a pretty cool scene. Kudos to both Maria and Winter for being brave.
I still like the first book in the trilogy better, but this one is pretty good too. I just thought that Maria found "the thing she was after" (which shall not be named, so as not to spoil) a bit too quickly, or without her having to do much action or "looking". But the overall adventure is intriguing!
The main reason why I like reading this trilogy is because it really focuses on the plan that God has prepared for your life. It makes you think about it. We never know just what to expect, what amazing things that God has waiting for us just up ahead. Your destiny is great, just like Maria's, if you'll follow the path He has set for you.
Christian and homeschool families will love this sci-fi series.
In this book, Maria is halfway through her mission, she has the crown jewels and is now on a dangerous mission to find the crown prince. The adventure, the danger, and epic plot twists had me surprised and on the edge of my seat throughout the book. I think this is probably my favorite book in the destiny trilogy, for through all of the chaos Maria is able to find peace and serenity through God.
Things I Loved:
Once again, another full-length novel from Ms. Sarah Holman! Love me some good, full-length novels!! I loved the excitement and drama in this book; it definitely delves deeper than the first book and there is a lot more adventure, and risk. I also loved the descriptions of Maria’s surroundings, while there were times in the books Sarah was able to instill fear in me with the descriptions of the places Maria was stuck in, she also left in me a feeling of contentment when she described other places. Overall, I love the writings of Sarah and this is my new favorite novel.
Things I Didn’t Love:
There wasn’t anything that I didn’t love about this book, but as I said before, there were some things that caused me to feel fear for Maria, which of course isn’t a bad thing…just fear goes hand in hand with negativity which it shouldn’t always. :)
When I saw that the first book of the Destiny Trilogy was available for download on kindle for free, I figured I could give it a try.
The first book, The Destiny of One, was quite good, but it wasn’t hard to see that it was the author’s first book. There were a lot of things that could have been improved. Even so, I loved the story, and was eager to read book two, The Destiny of a Few. The writing improved 50% in book two, and the story just got better. Book three, The Destiny of a Galaxy, was by far the best of them all.
It got progressively better as the story went on.
Fairly one-dimensional in the first book, but book two and three were substantially better. I really felt like I knew the characters after book two.
Book one was not so great…a bit painful to read. It improved greatly in book two, especially with what the characters were feeling. I felt like I learned a lot about writing style, in a good way, from books two and three.
Very nicely done.
The first eight chapters or so of the first book were a little dry. I think those could have been condensed. After that though, the book absolutely took off and the excitement didn’t end until the series was over! It was amazing!
All in all, I thoroughly enjoyed this trilogy and do not regret reading it in the least. Don’t forget to read the short story collection that goes with this series; Continuing Destiny.
Maria is back and ready to complete her mission from book 1. I think the pace was faster than the first book. We get to meet more characters after Maria and Winter get into trouble. They were all very interesting characters. I even came around to liking Winter a little bit even though she really annoyed me, as I'm sure was the intent. :P I was happy when Quint showed back up though. :)
It's a fun continuation of the sci-fi series, and I'm looking forward to getting into book 3 to see how this all ends up!
Recommended for sci-fi and Christian fiction fans!
