Summary from Goodreads:
 What happens when the girl you’ve loved since you were six years old runs away from you, effectively breaking your heart again? Evan is about to find out.

Nineteen-year-old Evan spends his time in the woods of Dare Forest where the trees have personality, as close to Abby as he can be. But love has a cruel master and everyone around him has forbidden he contact her.

Abby’s nights are stressed with her Enchanter life, her dreaded nightmares, and her enduring will to save her brother from his own inner darkness. But when Evan speaks to her for the first time in fourteen years, she finds his voice too painful to bear.
Countless times before them, the union between their opposing families has failed and caused unfathomable destruction. The love in their hearts strives to be together forever, but will their destinies break them apart?

Allie Burke’s second novel in The Enchanters Series breaks through the Paranormal Romance genre to not just entertain her readers but to empower and inspire them to embrace the momentous question: What would you do when faced with an impossible love?

My Review:
Emerald Destiny is an emotional ride that you won't want to put down. I liked the first book Violet Midnight but this one I loved. I truly connected with the characters and didn't want to stop reading.

Abby and Evan get to tell their story in this one. It was all about their parents in Violet Midnight. I still loved getting to read about Jane and Christian but Abby and Evan's relationship just took the story to a whole new level. Abby is very strong willed and protective of her family. Then there is her brother Daniel who is even more driven towards protecting his family than his sister is. Together they are a force to be reckoned with.

As I said in the beginning I truly connected with the characters. The way the author tells the story, it's like you are there living it right along with the characters she has created. Some stories are a bit emotional but this one really got me. There is a part in the story that almost made me tear up. I found myself wanting to read any chance I got, it's that good. It will take you on an emotional roller-coaster with lots of twists and turns, suspense and romance. I thought the ending was great and am really looking forward to reading the next book. This e-book was provided to me for review. This did not affect my review in any way.
