Stone of Destiny by Laura Howard: Review and Giveaway

Stone of Destiny by Laura Howard
(The Danaan Trilogy #2)
Publication date: April 15th 2014
Genres: Paranormal, Young Adult


Allison thought it was crazy enough when she found out her father, Liam, wasn’t entirely human. But now she has to join his magical allies to unravel his former mistress’s plans. Aoife wants to keep Allison’s parents apart forever.

Despite Allison’s efforts to keep Ethan, the only guy she’s ever cared about, out of this supernatural mess, fate keeps throwing him back into the mix.

Will Allison be able to find the amulet that holds the enchantment Aoife placed on Liam and destroy it? Are Ethan’ s feelings for Allison strong enough to endure the magic of the Tuatha De Danaan?


Stone of Destiny, the second book in the Danaan Trilogy by Laura Howard, begins right where The Forgotten Ones left off. Definitely read these books in order, or else you'll have no idea what's happening. 
Although the storyline didn't progress that much, I loved how Allison and Ethan's relationship expanded. 
Stone of Destiny showed us a bit deeper into all of the characters' back stories, so that was nice. 
All in all, Stone of Destiny was a great read and an awesome follow up book that'll leave you wanting more!

Recommended for: Ages 13+
Rating: 3.5 Stars

Laura Howard lives in New Hampshire 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. The Forgotten Ones is her first published novel.
