***** out of 5 (loved it)

I was lucky enough to receive a free copy of this book from the author in exchange for a honest review.

Genre:

Urban Fantasy, Paranormal Romance

Synopsis:

There was no reason for Lauren to be in a coma. Her physical injuries had healed, but she had been non-responsive for so long that her doctors told her family and Max to move on. She awoke to find her life in a shambles; the man she loved was gone, her friends had moved on with their lives, and her family was ripped apart by her accident. No one knew of the evil forces watching, waiting for her in the shadows, in the lonely corners, even in the eyes of those she loved. Lauren needed to reclaim her destiny, to get her life back; the last thing she ever expected was Destiny’s Revenge.  

Review:

Good grief, I thought my book hangover was bad from the first one but I just know that after I've finished this series, it's going to be AWFUL! This book starts where Meeting Destiny finished, Lauren wakes up from a coma and realises that her life has changed in a dramatic way, not the least of which is that Max is no longer around.  Through twists, turns and emotional upheaval of both good and bad varieties, Lauren makes it out of the nursing home and tries to put her life back in order.  I won't say anymore about the story for fear of spoiling it for others before they have read it. So... how did this book make me feel?  There is no easy answer to that as I wanted to keep on reading it, yet was impatient for the ending to see what happened.  There is not a single dull moment in the story and your adrenaline will be racing at points.  Lauren is simply amazing.  She is strong-willed and very determined that she will have a 'normal' life.  The thing I simply LOVED about this, is that Nancy Straight is not afraid to make you, the reader, ask questions.  She writes in this book that the concept of good and evil, white and black, is instilled in us from childhood.  Life is simply not like that.  Life is all about balance.  If you do not experience the dark then you will not appreciate the light.  So some of the conversations in the book with Samael and Dakota were fascinating for their insights and perspectives given. This series continues to be one of the most unusual that I have read.  I am thoroughly enjoying every page and speaking of which, if you'll excuse me.  I have Book 3, Destiny's Wrath, to start!
