At last, it seems like the time to cross the bridge one last time is upon us. It was only three years ago that I was first brought into the world of Doon, filled with action, romance, and by ways of me, Morlocks. Yes, that's right, I am still talking about them.
Just as Kenna and Vee have grown throughout the novels, I have too, beginning in high school and ending in college. Somehow, it feels as though these novels have been timed just right, so that I can grow alongside my favorite pair of fictional best friends.
Our leading ladies have matured so much and now face unusual circumstances of adult responsibilities. While my problems don't consist of running a kingdom (I wish), or saving the day from evil witches (again, wishing), their hardships were relatable in their own sense of newfound responsibilities and the burdens that follow them as emerging adults. My soft spot for this story blooms from just that, all the different obstacles I've faced throughout the last few years and how Doon has always happened to be there to cheer me right up, and at just the right time too.

This is where they usually happen to be ahead of the curb, whereas other series lack in original recreation or different material altogether. In turn of this, these awesome lady writers have no problem targeting every single one of your emotions and charging them at full force. I still remember just how much Destined for Doon played with my head and had me listening to sappy soundtracks for weeks on end. No Doon book has ever failed to make me laugh and cry within the same sitting.
Forever Doon doesn't cut it short, either. In fact, I'd dare to say this is the most emotional installment yet. I'll go on to admit that the * The Young Folks.com *show more
