The beginning was so sad and terrifying at the same time. Well, the whole book was an up and down with sadness and loss as the defining emotions. I felt so bad for Lauren and Max. Every time they got together, something tore them apart. It was heartbreaking.
As the plot thickened and more was explained, it really made you wonder what was right and what was wrong; who was lying and what was the truth. I hope the next book answers more of the questions that keep creeping up during the reading.
Lauren is the type of person everyone should strive to be. She's smart, very compassionate, brave, forever giving and loving unconditionally without regret, judgement or fear.
Overall, a really good book.
This book was actually better (in my opinion) than the first book in this series. It had action, passion, drama, a driven plot, great side characters, and character development.
You get the same characters as the first book, but this book didn't focus on the family/friends as much. It focused more on the paranormal groups within the book. The Cabinet, the Council and then some new characters. Seth still annoys the heck out of me, but that hasn't changed since the first book. I still love Max. He is probably one of my favorite book guys right now. He's just a normal guy with no bad boy type edge to him. You can totally relate to him and such a well written character. I feel the same way about Lauren. I can easily understand why she is doing what she does.
I will say this book had me in one heck of a dispute with myself for awhile. I love when authors are able to pull off the whole bad is good, good is bad or even the whole "you have no idea who is bad because I'm going to keep changing the rules on you". Nancy Straight has this nailed. I am still not sure who the true villain of this book is. I guess I'll just hold out and read book 3 to figure it all out.
Now the hard part is going to be highlighting the story in a way that gives nothing away. Here it goes! Differences, Lauren and Max have both changed, they have both matured, but that is not the only difference. Their destiny was altered, consequently altering them as individuals. They each have a strenuous journey of re-discovery as they each battle their inner turmoils. Max is more hardened, which is to be expected, but he still very much has the ability to make the female readers' feel fluttery butterflies. In my eyes, Max is more desirable in Destiny's Revenge. Lauren has amped up her likableness by multitudes. Don't get me wrong, I absolutely loved her in Meeting Destiny, but she has grown into a more commendable, resolute young woman. She relies more on herself, only asking for help when she truly needs it. There is sparse interaction with secondary characters, but the reader won't be lacking as their attention is captured and held by Lauren. There are a few new characters that are introduced, some more amiable than others. There are two additions that I truly loved and was shocked and happy Nancy Straight chose to introduce them. They added to the story, complementing Lauren and Max's characters. Nancy Straight also slips in a treat for her fans in the form of Max's perspective. That's right, we get to delve into his psyche! I can only hope that we will get continued glimpses in the third and final installment, Destiny's Wrath!
All I can say, you better be prepared to pick your jaw up off the ground! I was capsized by a rogue wave, and that is how I will equate it: to being hit by a huge wave, sucked under, tossed around until you can't decipher which way is up or down. Then once you finally surface, you are left gasping for air trying to find your equilibrium. In one word: intense! The wheels in your head will be constantly spinning as new aspects are laid out in front of you. You lean to one side, then maybe start to lean to the other. You will have no idea who to believe or how it will end! The emotions are also more raw, almost gritty. And that is all I will say about the plot!
Nancy Straight is an exceptional author that goes above and beyond any expectations. She successfully ensnares the readers attention, never relinquishing the hold until you have the the last book in your hands, ready to shun the world and continue the adventure of Lauren and Max.
