Now that Karlie has received her full powers, things are going to be great... right?

Karlie's number one priority is to kill Serenity - after all she deserves it for trying to kill Alex. Though it isn't as easy as it sounds. Serenity teams up with demons to create an army to destroy Karlie.

On top of that, there are a ton of zombies, everywhere... And a new angel in town, who seems more like a demon... And of course, a shape shifter dragon! It's all weird, even for Karlie.

With friends turning against friends, it seems as though her life got a whole lot more complicated.


My Review:
Heather M. White provided a great second book in her Destiny Saga. Not only did I get to question some of the characters intentions, but there were werewolves, vampires and zombies!

When Destiny Strikes starts right where When Destiny Knocks left off. Karlie is mourning the loss of a dear friend in the graveyard while fuming about the person who took her friends life. She brought her back only to be repaid with death. Kinda crappy thing to do if you ask me.

Karlie has come to her full power and has to stay alive and win a war or the human race could come to an end. Throughout the book she questions her abilities and some of the choices she has made, and I would too if I were her. She has a lot riding on her shoulders and all she wants to do it get revenge.  

I loved the ending. Not only was it unexpected, but it happened abruptly. Complete and total shocker. I liked being able to question character motives. There were times when I couldn't decide if one character was on Karlie's side or not. It was refreshing. There were three things I didn't like. The first was that I felt some of the scenes either dragged on or could have been improved with a little more substance. The second was that there wasn't as much action as I was expecting. Finally, I would have loved to see more of Alex. I am Team Alex even though I know Karlie will never be with him. Beyond those three minor points it was a great read.

Overall, I enjoyed this book. It wasn't as good as the first, but it was a great addition to the saga and I'm looking forward to book 3. I highly recommend this series if you want a little bit of romance, a lot of action, and some paranormal beings.

This really seems like a good series! I've read your review for When Destiny Knocks a few weeks ago and now this!

There wasn't much in the summary for When Destiny Knocks so imagine my shock when I read werewolves, vampires and zombies from you review!

I'm glad you have enjoyed the book and I definitely like "a little bit of romance, a lot of action, and some paranormal beings". :) Thanks for sharing! <3
