Destiny Blog Tour - Reviews & Giveaway


I was very excited to be asked to take part in the Destiny Tour for author Heather White.  The book summary sounded really interesting and I was not disappointed.  For the tour I received copies of both When Destiny Knocks and When Destiny StrikesI am anxiously awaiting the release of the next book in the series.

Photobucket In When Destiny Knocks we meet sixteen year old Karlie.  Karlie was living in New York City until her mother died in an accident.  Karlie moves to Arkansas to live with her father, whom she hasn't had the best relationship.  On her first day of school Karlie finds that she develops easy friendships with a group of teens - but they are dead set on keeping her away from Shane - to whom she has a strange reaction to the first day of school.  Karlie suddenly learns that she is developing strange powers.  But why?  And why does she react this way to Shane?  I'm not giving it away, so pick up the book and read it!

Tension rises as Karlie learns that Shane's father wants him to kill her.  Shane, who is awesome by-the-way, can't do it, struggles with whether or not he can kill Karlie.  Will he do it?  That's another thing you'll need to read to find out. 

The paranormal world that Heather M. White writes is fascinating, and keeps you wanting to read more.  The main characters are well developed and likable.  I find myself liking Alex a lot, even though he seems somewhat irresponsible.  I would like to see more development in the personalities of Karlie's friends aka protectors.

When Destiny Knocks is a fast, fun read appropriate for 13 and up.  I am giving away one eBook copy of When Destiny Knocks.  To enter you must give me your name and email address.  There are extra entries for following on google friend connect or linky follower and for tweeting about the giveaway.  Giveaway runs from now through April 26th at midnight.

PhotobucketIn When Destiny Strikes Karlie has achieved her full powers and more and more paranormals are coming to try to kill her.  People Karlie once thought she could trust have turned on her.  People she thought were dead are back.  The author really had me struggling trying to figure out people's motives.  There were a few people I couldn't tell if I trusted them or not.  There are still a few people I think may prove to be untrustworthy in the next book.  When Destiny Strikes is a real page turner.  I read it all in one sitting because I could not wait to see what happened next.

Karlie's arch enemy joins forces with someone she trusted.  Someone she thought was her friend.  Her enemies raise of forces of zombies against her.  In a vision, Karlie sees that she and her friends are headed for war.  They are all anxious because it is their small group against hundreds of zombies, werewolves and vampires.  To top things off, Karlie is almost killed by her former friend.  Towards the end of the war we don't know where Alex's loyalty lies.  I was pretty bummed about this, as he is one of my favorites in the group.

With the help of some new friends, Karlie and her group prepare for battle.  Will they all make it?  You need to read and find out!

I am giving away an eBook of When Destiny Strikes.  Giveaway is from now thru April 26th at midnight.  Follow me on gfc or linky followers and Tweet about the giveaway for extra entries.

About the Author (in her own words):

I am a returning resident to Arkansas. I just migrated south from Saint Louis, MO with my husband. We have a married a year. :)

I love to write. I have been writing since I was a kid - literally. I decided in the 2nd grade I would write a book. I wrote lots of short stories and poems... And did I mention I wrote over 200 songs? (Yeah, I'm a musician too - guitar, bass, drums and vocals). So I wrote my very first novel at the ripe age of 14... My Mom still has it :-/. OK, so maybe it wasn't my best work, but I had a LOT of fun writing it!

When I'm not writing, I am normally reading. I am also a caffeine addict... Dr. Pepper and NOS (the energy drink) are my drugs of choice :)
