Destiny, YA Paranormal Romance (Brightest Kind of Darkness Series, Book #3)

Destiny - P.T. Michelle I've mentioned before that I really enjoy this paranormal YA series, and its first two books A Brightest Kind of Darkness and Lucid were certainly fantastic. However, I felt like in this particular installment the plot went woolgathering.

There were a lot of messy developments, a case of Ethan's split personality and a new spin on Corvus legend, and I thought that even Nara whose sensibility I absolutely adore was running hot and cold way too many times. Without getting into any big spoilers, I did not like how conveniently Drystan faded into background. Personally I loved that boy in Lucid and he deserved a much better presence in Destiny.

Still, that wonderful chemistry between Nara and Ethan did not get buried under all the drama, and this was what made Destiny an enjoyable read no matter what. I am slightly disappointed but still loving the series as whole. Recommended.
