But Gabriel isn't their only enemy. Before they reach their destination, they will battle nature, prejudice and even those hidden among them who wish their destruction.
I really enjoyed Destinations! I feel like it was really well written, and followed the second book really well. I loved how everything came together in this book. We got to meet some new people, continue the adventure we had started in the first book, and see how a lot of things came together.
The first book left a lot of holes and things that I wanted to know unresolved, so the second book really filled in a lot of those. I loved meeting the new characters! I thought it was a really great idea to do the point of view of the many different characters at different times so we could know what was going on in everyone's head.
The book was well written, just like the first one. I found that the book touched on subjects that hit hard in real life, and I love that Lyndi had the guts to go ahead and talk about them. A lot of things in this book, regardless of its fiction title, are very true and do happen in real life.
The book was really great! The storyline was well thought out, and I can't wait to see what adventures await Lin Kwan and all of the other amazing characters. This book was seriously well done. I have to give this book 5 out of 5 stars, and I can't wait for book 3!
