Repercussions...What happens after the battle is done? Do you think everyone lives happily ever after?
Lumernia has been left divided, leaderless. The ensuing power struggle cost the city more than just the knightly order, leaving the land and its people unguarded. Is the conquering army content with their prize, or do they have their sights set on more?
Celeste, Tarnelius, Arcus and Siobhan are back. After saving the land of Altierra from the threat of the ultimate evil, they expected life to return to normal and made plans to pay respects to a fallen friend. No good deed ever goes unpunished, though, and their actions have many consequences. Kuunkierto was defeated, but an ancient pact was broken and the first calls of war have sounded. Will they be able to right the wrongs of the world once more? Will they be strong enough to face what is coming?
Through the flames of war, new destinies arise.
Holy cow that was great! Destiny's Flame is a vast improvement over Destiny's Wings. The editing was great, there was more action, and we delved a little deeper into the lives of these characters.
From the beginning of the book to the last page, Destiny's Flame grabs you and doesn't let go. I read this in one sitting, mostly because the plot kept me guessing as to what would happen.
This book was more centered on Joseph, Victoria, and Arcus more than anyone else. It wasn't a bad thing, but I would have liked to have seen more perspective from the other characters.
Oh, and there is a scene where I was left with my mouth hanging open. I had to reread it to make sure I read it correctly. And a couple of the characters make a little fuss about it, but for the most part are like "meh." Meh? MEH? I think the reason this wasn't made such a big deal of as it should have been is because there were more pressing matters going on at the time. What was done was done, and nothing could be done to fix it or reverse it.
Also, I have a love/hate relationship with Arcus. Sometimes I like him, and other times I wish I could kill him. It's been like this since book 1, and will probably continue with book 3, whenever that comes out.
But besides all the exasperating moments, I devoured Destiny's Flame, as it kept me reading and didn't have a dull moment. (Plus, I loved it!)
Destiny's Flame receives 5/5 Platypires from me!
