Book three  in the Destiny and Darkness series

Author: Karen Frost

Description

This thrilling third book in the addictive Destiny and Darkness series offers a breathless fantasy adventure about a female knight tasked with a daring quest.

The Southlands is a place of mystery. A hermit kingdom with which Ilirya has been at war for forty years and the home of monsters and living nightmares. But now it is Ilirya’s only hope.

Bold, brave lesbian Asher is among a small band of knights sent to achieve peace at any cost with the Southlands’ mercurial leader, the King of Cats. With enemies howling at Ilirya’s gates, failure will mean Asher’s homeland will fall.

Each step deeper into the Southlands takes the knights farther into danger on a path full of darkness and impossible decisions. Asher must dig within to find a strength she didn’t know she had and combat terrifying creatures she never imagined. But how high is too high a price for peace?

    :

    Destiny’s Choice by Karen Frost is the third book in the Destiny and Darkness Series, a young adult fantasy series that is really for all ages. I thoroughly enjoyed the first two books, Daughter of Fire: Conspiracy of the Dark and Daughter of Fire: The Darkness Rising, so I was looking forward to reading more in this fantastical world Ms. Frost has created.

    The third book is still set in the same world. A few of the characters are also from the first two stories, but this tale could be read without reading those novels. I wouldn’t recommend it, since I think you might understand the world and the overall story better if you read the books in order, but you could read this one alone.

    Destiny’s Choice is full of adventure and lots of magical creatures. The main characters barely have time to breathe between the action scenes. There are wights (zombies), magicians who can shape-shift, knights, and even a dragon. It also has a lot of Dark magic. Notice I capitalized dark. While the first books in this series have a dark undertone to their themes, this book is a true dark fantasy. There is very little to lighten the mood in this book from the first page to the last. Because of this, I must be honest and say that this book is my least favorite of the three.
    The novel is very well-written. The world building continues to be exceptionally well done in this tale. The characters (both humans and magical creatures) are well-developed and interesting. If you love a dark fantasy with nonstop action and lots of dark magic, you are going to love this book.

    The overall story does not end here. I’m fairly sure there will be a fourth novel in this series. Even though this was not my favorite novel in the set, I am invested in the overall storyline, and I will be looking for the next book when it comes out.

    I received an ARC from Ylva Publishing for an honest review.

    :

    I adored the first two books in this series, and this book, the third, just as much, if not more.

    There is adventure, heart-ache, terrible choices to be made, dark magic, zombies, horses and a fierce and terrifying dragon. There is bravery, loyalty and love. There are Knights who live by a code, terror, pain, loss and a sweeping setting that came to life in my imagination so easily.
    Did I mention a dragon? I love dragons.
    The characters are loosely related to the characters in the first two books in this series, although not in a familial way. (Read it, you’ll see) This brings a sense of familiarity to the reader, even though this is the first time we’re meeting some of these characters. But you’ll recognize many in this book if you’ve read the first two. (And if you haven’t yet, you totally should!)

    Karen Frost reasserts herself as a genius in her genre with this lesbian action-adventure tale. The cover, by Grit Richter, would make a stunning poster that I would happily display on my wall, even at my age.

    If you love fantasy, you’ll love this book, but you really do need to read the first two that are equally full of adventure, magic and tough choices.

    Read them all. You won’t regret it.
