My Review: What a wonderful story with such a message to young ones to embrace who they are and not let anyone make them feel ashamed for it. While reading Destiny and seeing Elena blossom and discover who she is and what is to become of her was delightful. I was so totally touched by this story and the message that it implies.As Elena's sixteenth birthday approaches her excitement builds as she loves being able to celebrate it with her family and her godmother Isabelle. What she thought would be just a time to catch up with Isabelle and enjoy the festivities with her family she is told of powers of telekinesis and about a trip she must embark on. In land thought to only a myth Avalon. Elena discovers there is more in store for her than ever imagined. Elena's journey into a new and exciting world was just told so beautifully. I can not wait for the next book in the series!a Rafflecopter giveaway
As Elena bounded back up the stairs, her mom watched, smiling, thinking about the last 16 years, and of all this next one would bring. She knew there would be a lot of changes, more so than Elena could possibly know, and she was looking forward to every one of them. She could hardly wait for Isabel’s arrival the next day so they could finally tell Elena the truth about who she was, and help her to blossom and start to become whom she was meant to be.
