It’s the year 2040, and sixteen-year-old Dez Harkly is one of the last of her kind—part of a nearly extinct race of shape-shifters descended from guardians to the Egyptian pharaohs. Her home and her secret are threatened when the Council lowers the barrier, allowing the enemy race to enter the Shythe haven.
As the Narcolym airships approach, Dez and her friends rebel against their Council and secretly train for battle. Not only is Dez wary of war and her growing affection for her best friend Jace, but she fears the change her birthday will bring. When Dez’s newfound power rockets out of control, it’s a Narcolym who could change her fate... if she can trust him.
Dez’s guarded world crumbles when she discovers why the Narcos have really come to Haven Falls, and she's forced to choose between the race who raised her and the enemy she's feared her whole life.
Destiny’s Fire is an epic tale of love, destiny, and friendship all wrapped up into one amazing book. It had me on edge and being thrown around by all the plot twists and shocking discoveries along the way. I loved the way Destiny’s Fire had me turning the pages so quickly, just to know what was going to happen next.
The cover fits the book perfectly. I loved the feel of it and just how it drew you in.
As I mentioned above, the plot was excellent, and the book was very well written. She had you gripped in her clutches until you finished the book. I really enjoyed how she threw in a lot of unexpected things and nothing was as it seemed. A surprise at every turn of the page.
Destiny was a very uncertain character. Everything she did was uncertain and she didn’t know if she wanted to do this or that. Other than her wishy-washy attitude, she was a pretty kick ass character. (Pardon the language) She was always trying to protect herself, learning self-defense, sparing with her friends, and learning to control her powers. She made you proud with all that she did.
All in All:I really enjoyed Destiny’s Fire. It was an amazing story and something you could really get into. I hope to see more of Destiny and her friends, who I didn’t mention but they were awesome.
