About the Book

Goodreads | Amazon
Trapped on a mysterious island, eighteen-year-old Riki finds refuge with four strangers. Isaac, the rugged EMT, insists no one else is around, but Riki cannot ignore her fear that someone is stalking her. Unless she finds a power truly great enough to overthrow Darkness, Riki will choose death over returning to captivity.
Lord Vétis, high priest of a cultic underground, will stop at nothing to reclaim the chosen one, but he must do so before her introduction to the real world ruins her royal destiny. Using black magic, he manipulates Riki and her self-assigned bodyguards, triggering a battle that consumes the entire island.
The underground will never allow Riki to live out her dreams of a normal life… something she has never known.

J.A. Marx’s Destiny Defied proved to be an interesting novel for me. Though it did take me a handful of chapters to adjust to the supernatural, spiritual aspects of the storyline, still I was hooked and intrigued from the start. A group of four friends vacationing alone on an island find a girl stranded on the beach and an action-filled, spirit-led, page-turning adventure ensues. Filled with engaging spiritual discussions and relatable relationships, Destiny Defied is a unique story that reminded me a lot of Frank Peretti’s novels and I’m looking forward to seeing where the series goes from here. Any fan of supernatural, spiritual thrillers will want to read Marx’s Destiny Defied. I recommend it.
