SHE'S DESTINED TO DESTROY THE WORLD... 
"Cat" Catalia Fisa has been running from her destiny since she could crawl. But now, her newfound loved ones are caught between the shadow of Cat's tortured past and the threat of her world-shattering future. So what's a girl to do when she knows it's her fate to be the harbinger of doom? Everything in her power.

BUT NOT IF SHE CAN HELP IT
Griffin knows Cat is destined to change the world-for the better. As the realms are descending into all-out war, Cat and Griffin must embrace their fate together. Gods willing, they will emerge side-by-side in the heart of their future kingdom...or not at all.

Val’s Reveiw

3.5 Stars

I enjoyed this, but it took me over a week to get through it – which is always indicative of what?

That I enjoyed it…but had no problem putting it down.

Why, you ask?

Because TRIALS.

Trials, trials, trials…

description

No, not a jury trial, but a trial of performance AKA constant battles and fighting scenes.

CONSTANT.

Now, I love me some action scenes…but this book felt like one crusade after another.
One test of ability after another.

description

One more opportunity for Cat to suddenly “find” new abilities.

description

One more opportunity to ask the Gods for help.

description

Over and over again.

Now, don’t get me wrong, I DID like it.

I love the connection between Cat and Griffin, PERIOD.

And I am always a sucker for anything with magic, mythological references, fated mates, and a “band of brothers” type team scenario.

I just thought it was a little heavy and detailed on the constant fighting scenes…some of that detail could have been used for furthering character details, etc.

But whatevs!

Looking forward to jumping into my ARC of book three.
