Blog Tour - Destined (#3 of the Desolation Series)

I was privileged enough to read all three books in this series and I must say they were all fantastic. While I loved the first two, I have to admit the last one was my favorite. The second book in this series left the main character, Desi, in an impossible situation where there was little hope of her body or soul being rescued. In book three, Destined,  we finally get to find out her fate. What a great ending to a fantastic story, not only of love and sacrifice, but of making difficult choices.

Ali Cross did such a great job bringing the characters to life and making you feel like you were in the story. Well done. Can't wait to see what she writes next.

Here's a little more about it.

Choosing is a bad idea, because Desi always makes the wrong choice, and sometimes there are no do-overs. Certainly not this time, when all has been lost and Desi can’t even save herself, let alone her friends. For Desi, the hardest thing is letting someone help her, to accept their sacrifice on her\behalf. But that’s exactly what she’ll have to do in order to save the worlds from Helena’s destruction.

The goddess of Helheimer, long imprisoned by Desi’s father, Loki, is free at last, and she’s bent on reclaiming what once was hers. The nine worlds will be drawn into war, over Hell, over Earth, with innocent humans as meaningless collateral. 

While Michael and the Gardians of Asgard, along with the golden-armored Valkyrie, lead the battle for freedom, it’s Desi who holds the destiny of all the worlds in her hands.

Can she set aside her doubts, once and for all, and claim the gifts that are hers to bear? Can she accept the sacrifice that is made for her and Become all that she was created to be?

Her final choice will define not only her future, but the fate of humankind, forever more.
