Summary for the Back of "Destiny"




     In the young adult novel, “Destiny”, Gabriella is just trying to be an ordinary teenager.  She wants to have fun with her friends, plan for college, and find a date to the Valentine’s Dance, all while helping her friend Monte cope with his mother’s cancer and come to terms with his sexuality.   But there is another side to Gabriella.  Years ago when her mother was murdered, she buried a secret so deep that she doesn’t even remember it anymore.  Gabriella is a witch, and she will have to learn to let that power break free if she is going to save herself from the warlock who was responsible for her mother’s death.  He craves the power in her bloodline and hopes to recruit her to his coven and turn her to the dark side of magick. 
      The spirit of Gabriella’s mother tries to warn her that she is in danger, but Gabriella is too afraid of magick to let her in. Desperate to help her daughter, she finds another witch—one that just happens to be in love with Gabriella.  Darron takes on the seemingly hopeless task of convincing Gabriella that magick exists, while also trying to defend himself from the stronger and more experienced warlock who is not happy with his interference.
       Gabriella and Darron can’t deny the attraction that is growing between them, but the two young witches have more standing in their way than just an evil warlock. There are also overbearing jocks and snobby rich girls to contend with.  Hurt feelings and jealousies constantly seem to tear them apart whenever they make any progress.  
     Things all come to a head at the Valentine’s Dance when a dangerous situation finally forces Gabriella to accept her powers.  People will die and secrets will be revealed. Gabriella and Darron realize they have been pawns in a game that began long before they were born. Now they will have to destroy the warlock, save their friend’s dying mother, and learn the true power behind Wiccan magick if they will have any hope of fulfilling their destiny.

  20. Laura, I can't wait to get and read this book. I love a book that: takes us on a journey outside our world; a hero/heroine who has to reach inside themselves and discover strengths to overcome adversity; and a good love story; a not predictable ending!! This book promises to have all, thanks!!

  21. I needed to create you a little observation so as to say thanks a lot again
    relating to the superb guidelines you’ve discussed here. It is certainly unbelievably
    open-handed of you to supply openly just what a number of us could possibly have
    supplied for an ebook to end up making some money on their own, most notably
    seeing that you could have tried it in case you decided. Those principles in addition
    served to provide a great way to realize that some people have the identical passion similar
    to my own to know the truth a great deal more pertaining to this issue. I know there are some
    more pleasurable opportunities in the future for many who see your blog. That is a very good tip
    especially to those fresh to the blogosphere. Simple but very accurate info Thank you for sharing this one. A must read post!
