Book Review-Forever Doon by Carey Corp & Lorie Langdon

Forever Doon
By:  Carey Corp & Lorie Langdon
Publisher:  Blink

“Forever Doon” begins with the Witch of Doon in power.  Queen Veronica is hiding from the witch in the countryside while trying to rebuild her life. Believing her beloved, Jamie has been killed, and trying to keep the citizens of Doon safe from the wrath of the witch is not an easy task, but Veronica must put her own grief aside and prepare her people for a fierce war that is to come.  Her life was slapped with a double whammy, because her best friend Mackenna and her boyfriend, Duncan, are trapped in the modern world in Alloway, because the Brig O’ Doon was destroyed and the portal fragmented.  This war will be fought on many dimensions with an unlikely army…of The Destined who willingly followed their Calling from all walks of life and from all countries, gathering together in Alloway, while waiting for the rebuilding of the Brig O’ Doon.

Although this book may be written for a young adult…if you need magical escapism, love, romance, and mystery this is a book you will thoroughly enjoy. Sadly, this is the fourth and final book in the Doon series. With each book I have been transported back in time when witchcraft was as real as eating.  The war between good and evil will keep you turning the pages and the imagination of the authors will keep on the edge of your seat, biting your nails as the undead (skellies) do the bidding of the witch against the Doonians. As the story unfolds you will find Queen Veronica doubting that she can be queen to Doon without Jamie, as she believes the witch has killed him.  The authors have done a great job in showing that even though we ask, in this case the Protector of Doon, to intervene it is not always the Protector’s will but in the end He will choose what is best.  The battles fought are not without loss but with great triumph for the people of Doon. 

I have loved the characters of Veronica, Mackenna, Jamie and Duncan from Beginning of the series.  They are fun-loving, a bit unconventional and serious when they need to be.  Although you do not need to read the first 3 books in the series, I highly recommend that you do so. 

Disclosure: I was given a copy of this Book by the publisher, Zondervan, (Blink) for an honest review.   I was not required to write a favorable review nor was I compensated for my review. The opinions in this review are my own.
