**About the Author**

Laura Howard lives in New Hamphire with her husband and four children. Her obsession with books began at the age of 6 when she got her first library card. Nancy Drew, Sweet Valley High and other girly novels were routinely devoured in single sittings. Books took a backseat to diapers when she had her first child. It wasn't until the release of a little novel called Twilight, 8 years later, that she rediscovered her love of fiction. Soon after, her own characters began to make themselves known.

*My Thoughts*

Note: This review contains no spoilers

Whoa! Wow! Laura Howard did it again with this second book of The Danaan Trilogy! Stone of Destiny starts where The Forgotten Ones ended. And, boy, is it one that is filled with suspense that will leave you gasping! Now that Allison knows who her father is and all the secrets behind his reason why he's been "gone" for so many years, Allison is focused on helping her mother...and now, her father.

Again, secrets are revealed that affect both worlds and the people in it. Laura's knack to write just enough to reveal the mystery, but not, creates that apprehension with, not only, the characters, but with the reader as well. Wow! My heart is still racing with that anxiety of the danger and peril that these characters are in! The only part I was not happy about is the "waiting"...LOL! Yes, I was getting as impatient as Allison...hahaha!! But, it was all a part of the flow of the story. 

I really don't want to give any more without spoiling it. After all, The Forgotten Ones (book 1) introduces readers to these wonderful characters and a mystical world that I don't want to take away that suspenseful and thrilling feeling for other readers. All I will say is that Stone of Destiny is another wonderfully written, suspenseful, and mysterious story with a touch of friends and family bonding, plus romance. Allison is learning how to open up and trust more now that she knows she's not alone. We can't forget that, again, Laura leaves us with a cliffhanger...with enough uncertainty to keep us thinking until the third and final book!

  1. Great review, Jasmine! I haven't read this series yet but it sounds like it's getting even better. I like that it has friendship and family as well as romance. I also love the intensity that this one seems to have! Glad you liked it! :)

    1. Thanks Giselle! I've had a copy of The Forgotten Ones and I was sitting on it until Stone of Destiny so I could read these back-to-back. I'm glad that I did! Same here! It's got some intensity!
