Destined for Doon…
In this sequel to Doon, Mackenna Reid realizes she made a horrible mistake–choosing to follow her dreams of Broadway instead of staying in the enchanted land of Doon. To make everything worse, she’s received her Calling–proof she and Duncan are each other’s one true love–and it’s pure torment, especially when visions of the very alluring Scottish prince appear right before she goes on stage. So when Duncan tells her an ancient curse threatens to overtake Doon and the new queen needs her to return, Kenna doesn’t have to think twice. With darkness closing in on all sides, Kenna and Vee must battle a world of nightmares in order to protect the kingdom. But it will take the ultimate test of courage for Kenna to salvage her happily ever after.
I’ve been looking forward to reading Destined for Doon since finishing Doon. I didn’t love how Doon ended and needed to know the rest of the story. In thinking it through, I’m impressed that the writing team managed to give Doon a complete ending while still giving the reader enough hints to be begging for the next novel.
What I liked: I really enjoyed Destined for Doon. Even more than the first actually. There was so much set up in the last book that we could just roll with the events in this novel.
I loved Kenna and Duncan. They are some of the best people I’ve met and I found myself emotionally involved in every aspect of their lives!
Plus, I found Destined for Doon to be quite funny. Not laugh out loud funny, but I frequently found myself chuckling or highlighting fun quips.
Don’t start this one while people are around – you’ll be tempted to ignore them! 😉
What I didn’t like: I definitely think you need to read Doon before reading Destined for Doon. This is very much a series that should be read together and in order. I will warn you Destined for Doon does the same thing… except there’s a more dramatic finale.
Also, I still stand with my thoughts from the previous review – this is not a novel for teens. Young Adults, maybe, but teens, no.
