Destined  - P.C. Cast, Kristin Cast Destined was okay. Too many references to current pop culture (were they paid to mention True Blood/Charlaine Harris a million times?) and, in my opinion, the writing was not as strong as in previous books.

I did enjoy the Rephaim/Kalona story line, I also enjoyed getting to know Shaunee better, and Aurox was interesting. That said, the writing was all over the place and felt kind of scattered/thrown together quickly. There were too many POVs going on and the ending was a let down since it didn't feel complete.

Though the writing/story wasn't as strong as I've come to expect from the Casts, it was definitely better than many YA 'vampire' novels I've read. I enjoyed reading Destined and hope that questions will be answered in the next installment.
