Each character was really well-constructed, and I’m really looking forward to continuing the series. And seeing more of Quint…turned out being quite fond of him. Not right of the bat, but pretty soon after. ^.^
If you feel that you’re being pressured to choose your life’s path, read this book and be encouraged. While it may be fiction, it has a great message!
19-year-old Maria Morris lives on Mars with her parents and siblings in a futuristic Space Age. A new law is being passed: all Christians will be marked to separate them from the rest of the galaxy's population. Maria is a girl who's just trying to figure out what to do with her life... just like so many teenagers and young adults! I like how this book focuses on an issue that many deal with, and have to seek God's wisdom in. Maria is really a great role model in this sense.
"....I just feel like I should be doing something, that God has something for me that I'm missing. How do I find out what God wants me to do?"
- The Destiny of One
The story is a wonderful testament to the Christian faith. There's fun adventure, and it allows for quality morals to shine through the plot. Christian and homeschool families will love this sci-fi series.
Last thought: I hope to see plenty more of Quint in book #2!
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.
Things I Loved:
Finally!!! Finally! Finally!!!! A full length book from one of my favorite authors!!! I spent a good part of my day reading this book and was so pleased to do so!!! Anywho, I loved the depth of the characters in this book, it was so exciting to really take some time and get to know the characters a little more in-depth than usual. I loved how this book constantly references old fashioned times, with kings, knights. I am a personal fan of these histories and the fact that she added them in a more modern way with spies and government propaganda definitely made the book more fun.
Things I Didn’t Love:
Like I said before, I was wary at first about the Christian/Sci Fi realm of it all but it really turned out well. There really isn’t anything I didn’t love about this book!

This was a fun read! Maybe a little simplistic and Star Wars-y at times. But it had a good message with "what do I do with my life/what does God have...Read more
It was a quick read. Full of action, and intrigue. A very interesting story.
