Destined - Kristin Cast, P.C. Cast Okay, ready for a laugh? I believe I stopped reading this series at #4, Untamed, and when given a chance to read this one, I figured, eh... why not? I've been curious as to how things have been turning out for Zoey and gang.

Oddly enough, I didn't become too lost. Of course there were things that I now really want to go back and read to find out what happened, but it wasn't too disconcerting that I couldn't finish the book. It was an easy read and I finished it rather quickly. Those that love this series will love this book. Those who are less thrilled, may not totally love this book. To me, this one was really written for the fans of the series and seemed like a "inbetween" book. Important things happen, but could have been included in the next book without a cliffie. Yep, another cliffie for this series.

What I really didn't like about this book besides the cliffie is that the gang didn't seem to have matured much since I last left them. In fact, it almost seemed like they de-evolved. Very childish but dealing with adult and supernatural issues, you think someone would get a clue. However, it didn't seem as though anyone was in a hurry to grow up despite all of the chaos around them.

I give this book 3 stars. I think it is an easy read and as I said, great for those who are a fan of the series. For those that like to keep up with what is going on, but aren't on the edge of the seat might wait for a library loan or at least until the next book comes out (although I suspect there will be another cliffie at the end of that one as well). I will say, it did make me curious enough to check out the rest of the series books that I missed.
