Now that Karlie has received her full powers, things are going to be great...right?

Karlie's number one priority is to kill Serenity--after all she deserves it for trying to kill Alex. Though it isn't as easy as it sounds. Serenity teams up with demons to create an army to destroy Karlie.

On top of that, there are a ton of zombies, everywhere... And a new angel in town, who seems more like a demon... And of course, a shape shifter dragon! It's all weird, even for Karlie.

With friends turning against friends, it seems as though her life got a whole lot more complicated.
When Destiny Strikes kicks off right where When Destiny Knocks ended. With the help of Shane, Jessica, and Alex, Karlie has brought Serenity back to life. And how does Serenity repay Karlie's kindness? By stabbing and seemingly killing Alex. Talk about ungrateful, right? Thinking that Alex is dead, Karlie is out for revenge, but first she needs to fight off the hordes of zombies coming her way. Yes, ZOMBIES! You can never go wrong adding zombies to the supernatural spook mix.

Karlie has received her full powers, and they are incredibly kick a**! For instance, Karlie was surrounded by zombies on all sides and she was able to take them all out at once by spinning really fast while swinging a shovel at their heads. That was one of my favorite Karlie fight moves. She has enhanced physical and mental abilities, and the help of new friends, so she has a fighting chance in this war.

The new angel in town, Hannah, rubs Karlie the wrong way and there's instant animosity between them--mostly because Hannah has a thing for Alex and isn't afraid to show it. But once they let go of the hostility they quickly start to become good friends. And there's the twin dragon shapeshifters, Hugh and Hubert. They are an invaluable addition to the team with their ability to breathe fire, which takes out pretty much any spook but demons.

But new powers and extra fighters doesn't make any of them indestructible. They will do anything to protect Karlie and keep her alive, and some of them won't make it out alive. The all-out war that was a result of Serenity's planning ended in a cliffhanger of EPIC proportions. Heather White knows how to keep us hanging and begging for more. I can't wait to see what happens next and how Karlie gets out of her latest situation.

Hi! I am Heather M. White, the author of the Destiny Saga, the Vampire Hunter Series and the upcoming novel Redheads are Soulless! It's so nice to meet you!

I am a returning resident to Arkansas. I just migrated south from Saint Louis, MO with my husband. We have been married a year. :)

I love to write. I have been writing since I was a kid - literally. I decided in the 2nd grade I would write a book. I wrote lots of stories and poems... And did I mention I wrote over 200 songs? (Yeah, I'm a musician too). So I wrote my very first novel at the ripe age of 14... My Mom still has it :-/. Ok, so maybe it wasn't my best work, but I had a LOT of fun writing it!

I started college at the young age of 17. (I graduated high school at 16). And my English papers were always a hit in my classroom. Somebody told me "you should make that story into a book". I pushed it to the back of my mind... Until recently.

I LOVE TO READ. Besides writing it is my absolute favorite thing to do.

I also love the TV series: Supernatural and Vampire Diaries... More like obsessed. I have seen every episode of Supernatural EVER. And I kind of have an obsession with Damon... And I'm watching American Idol this season because my friend Lauren Gray is on there! GO LAUREN!

I play music. I have played the guitar for 10 years, bass for 8 and drums for about 9. I use to play guitar in a band. We were actually good. But my bass player got pregnant and my drummer got engaged. And I decided music wasn't my "main" passion anymore.
