Destined for Doon by Carey Corp & Lorie Langdon: 5 of 5 STARS YA Review

Destined for Doon (Doon #2) by Carey Corp & Lorie Langdon. September 2, 2014. Blink. Goodreads. Book 1: Doon.

The second book in the popular new Doon YA series that takes on a classic story, Brigadoon, and spins it in a new way to give readers a fresh, modern experience.

In this sequel to Doon, Kenna Reid realizes she made a horrible mistake-choosing to follow her dreams of Broadway instead of staying in the enchanted land of Doon. Worse, she’s received proof she and Duncan are meant to be, along with torturous visions of the prince she left behind. So when Duncan shows up and informs Kenna that Doon needs her, she doesn’t need to think twice. But even if Kenna can save the enchanted kingdom, her happily ever after may still be in peril.

The Doon novels are a part of Blink, HarperCollins Christian Publishing’s new YA imprint that delivers empowering and heartening literature while maintaining a tradition of imaginative and impactful storytelling.


I love this series! The authors and BLINK, the publishing company, sent me an ARC of book 2. I loved it! We hear from Veronica/Vee and McKenna/Kenna in both books. Book 1 was more from Veronica while this book 2 was more from Kenna.

Kenna had gone back to the United States which lasted almost a year for her. Her friend Veronica stayed in the land of Doon which had time that counted only as 2 months there. Kenna and Duncan had some things happen with their relationship in book 1, and then he came to get her in America at the beginning of book 2. Veronica had sent him because she needed Kenna’s help in Doon. Kenna was so surprised to see him after such a long time. Their relationship was very mixed up. Sometimes it made me frustrated while sometimes it made me laugh.

Kenna was asked to help with something terrible happening in Doon. She didn’t think she would stay long, but Veronica really wanted her to stay forever. You’ll have to read to find out what happens.

Destined for Doon entertained me! I loved reading it. I can’t wait until the next book comes out. If you haven’t read Doon yet then you must! If you have then go get Destined for Doon right now to read. I hope you’ll love it like I did.
