Destined for Doon by Carey Corp & Lorie Langdon

Book Description

In this sequel to Doon, Mackenna Reid realizes she made a horrible mistake - choosing to follow her dreams of Broadway instead of staying in the enchanted land of Doon. To make everything worse, she's received her Calling - proof she and Duncan are each other's one true love - and it's pure torment, especially when visions of the very alluring Scottish prince appear right before she goes on stage. So when Duncan tells her an ancient curse threatens to overtake Doon and the new queen needs her to return, Kenna doesn't have to think twice. With darkness closing in on all sides, Kenna and Vee must battle a world of nightmares in order to protect the kingdom. But it will take the ultimate test of courage for Kenna to salvage her happily ever after.
My Thoughts:
After reading Doon, I was excited to see the second in the series.  At the end of Doon, Mackenna and Vee chose their 'happily ever after', only to find that they may not have known exactly what they were thinking.  Mackenna has left Doon when her calling is there and Vee needs her help.  She also has left, probably, the love of her life and he is the one who goes to find her and bring her home....to Vee.  Vee has to come to terms with people not wanting her in power because she is an outsider.  AND there is something terrible going on in Doon.
I still had questions when Doon ended and was glad that the second book FINALLY came out!  The authors write alternating between Mackenna and Vee and you can see why the two of them are best friends.  I love that when Duncan came for her and Vee needed her, Mackenna went without question.  I enjoyed the story, most parts I can't talk about without spoilers, but I think if you like fantasy you will enjoy this book.
A 4/5 for me, this book flowed well and I loved the continuation of the story of Doon.  

Thank you to the publisher for the review copy of this book (via Booklook).  I received this book in exchange for an honest review and the opinions stated above are 100% mine.
