It has been 20 years since Laura was separated from her husband. The portal to Anandrian was destroyed and she was left taking care of her children with the help of her best friend. However, suddenly she is pulled back into Anandrian and all she wants to do is fix her family. The only issue is that her children are missing and nowhere to be found. While Diana is stuck in a cult-like gathering, David is stuck in a forest with a strange creature to keep him company. Why is this happening all of a sudden? Why are Laura, Diana, and David in Anandrian? Has an old enemy awakened?
Destiny Reclaimed is the second book in the Anandrian Series by Kathryn Heaney. Although I have not read the previous novel in the series, I had no trouble getting into the groove. From the moment I started the novel, I was transported to Anandrian along with the characters and invested in their story. While Laura is the protagonist of the story, I enjoyed the fact that the author gave as much attention to Diana and David. That added depth to the story and made it even more interesting for me.
While the flow of the novel was great, what really impressed me was how well the author maintained the atmosphere until the very end. She made sure that the reader was not going anywhere once they started reading and ensured that the characters were strong enough to hold their interest. I also loved the fact that she allowed Diana and David to grow into the people they are and not some hero that would become larger than life. She let them remain humble and human so that the reader could relate to them. This was a very entertaining novel, one that I would like to revisit again. Intense in the best way possible.
