Destined for Doon ~ Review

Destined for Doon
A Doon Novel 2
By Carey Corp and Lorie Langdon

Ten months have passed since MacKenna left Doon behind, since she left Duncan behind.  But she had a dream of a career on Broadway.  Stardom is now seemingly within her reach when Duncan comes to her with a summons from her BFF Vee. But Duncan refuses to tell her what Vee needs until they are on their way.

Doon is under attack and only Kenna can see the darkness encroaching and encircling Doon.  Time is a luxury that Vee, Kenna, and the princes of Doon don't have if they want to save this village that exists out of time.

But there is unrest in Doon that is threatening Vee's reign as queen.  And there are little issues in her relationship with Jamie that are troubling.

Duncan seems less than thrilled that Kenna is back in Doon (though it has been considerably less than 10 months since she left him behind).  And though she doesn't want to fall for him again she is hurt by his indifference and even coldness at times.  But a broken heart is not easily mended and when a happily ever after is in the balance mending is imperative.

But unless they stop the darkness that is threatening Doon no one will have a happily ever after ever again!

Those who read book 1 Doon will be delighted that Kenna and Duncan have a chance for a second chance.  And we get an opportunity to see how Veronica handles being Queen of Doon with the pressures of everyday ruling added to the threat of utter destruction.  And of course our favorite MacCrae princes are back in all their Doonian glory.

This book has moments of fun especially where some of Kenna and Vee's modern world clothing is concerned.  And if you like a little bit of romance in your life and death struggles against black petunias this is the book for you.  But be warned happy endings don't always work out just how we want them to...

I was provided a copy of the book through the BookLook blogger program in exchange for my honest review.


Book Description

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.
