Publisher's Summary

Zoey is finally home where she belongs, safe with her Guardian Warrior, Stark, by her side, and preparing to face off against Neferet - which would be a whole lot easier if the High Counsel saw the ex-High Priestess for what she really is. Kalona has released his hold on Rephaim, and, through Nyx's gift of a human form, Rephaim and Stevie Rae are finally able to be together - if he can truly walk the path of the Goddess and stay free of his father's shadow.
But there are new forces at work at the House of Night. An influx of humans, including Lenobia’s handsome horse whisperer, threatens their precarious stability. And then there’s the mysterious Aurox, a jaw-droppingly gorgeous teen boy who is actually more - or possibly less - than human. Only Neferet knows he was created to be her greatest weapon. But Zoey can sense the part of his soul that remains human, the compassion that wars with his Dark calling. And there’s something strangely familiar about him….
Will Neferet’s true nature be revealed before she succeeds in silencing them all? And will Zoey be able to touch Aurox’s humanity in time to protect him - and everyone - from his own fate? Find out what’s destined in the next thrilling chapter of the House of Night series.

Atrocious narrator

Would you listen to Destined again? Why?

I would not listen to Destined again. The language was awful - I get that it is supposed to be teens and they don't have the most sophisticated language but come on. Kramisha is the absolute worst - the narrator made her sound like an uneducated pre-Civil War slave. Just knock it off already. I cringed every time she spoke. I think the writers were shooting for a person with hip hop vibe but she just sounded like an idiot. Instead of sounding fresh and relevant to today's pop culture - she sounded stupid and uneducated. Another one that annoyed me by sounding vulgar and uneducated was Aphrodite. Her dark wit in prior books was funny but grated on me throughout this book. Her use of


What did you like best about this story?

I keep coming back for the characters and because I want to know how things turn out. I like the story but agree with many reviewers who want some closure on old storylines and fresh content instead of the same old recycled crap.


How could the performance have been better?

The performance could have been better with a different narrator. Caitlin Davies is awful in this series. The original narrator was the best out of all of them. At the very least the director should have all narrators pronounce the names the same way. Pick one pronunciation and STICK with it.


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No way I could listen to this straight through. I had to keep taking breaks because the narrator was bugging me so much.

Destined to keep you guessing...

Sometimes cliff hangers are a real pain & sometimes they are used appropriately. After reading Destined, you'll see that the latter is true for this book. Even though the 1st books in this series were the best, I like the way the story is forming & I can *gasp* see a possible end in sight! Then hopefully all of my cliff hanger questions will be answered. The narrator to these books is not my favorite, mainly because of how long it takes certain characters to complete a sentence but other than that it was a good book. I would say its probably worthy to take up space on the "2nd shelf" of your wishlist.
