Destiny Rising is an action packed read that keeps the reader on the edge of their seat. Through this series you watch how Elena has changed and all she has faced. L. J. Smith has created another read that will keep the reader guessing what is going to happen and waiting impatiently for the next in the series. I look forward to reading more of the challenges and adventures Elena and the Salvatore brothers will face.
Elena has seen many things since she first meet Stefan to fighting the darkness and phantoms to finding out that she is now a Guardian. While Elena thought that life would finally get back to normal, after going to Dalcrest College, she discovers she is dead wrong. The vampires on campus will stop at nothing to bring back Klaus. Elena thought that her struggles with Klaus were finally over and that he could no longer hurt her. What will Elena be forced to sacrifice to defeat Klaus while she learns more about being a Guardian?
Destined for danger . . .
Elena has faced countless challenges—escaping the Dark Dimension, defeating phantoms, discovering she's a Guardian. But nothing compares to choosing between the two loves of her life: Stefan and Damon Salvatore. Elena has reunited with Stefan, while Damon, hurt by the rejection, has become dark and unpredictable. Now Elena's torn between saving Damon's soul and staying true to Stefan.
But before Elena can decide who her heart belongs to, Dalcrest College's campus is overrun with vampires determined to resurrect Klaus, the wicked Old One who will stop at nothing to destroy Elena—and everyone close to her.
As Elena learns more about her destiny as a Guardian, a protector against evil on earth, she realizes that before she can defeat Klaus, she has to sacrifice someone close to her. Elena must decide how much—and who—she's willing to give up before it's too late. . . .
