"A book to rival TWILIGHT and VAMPIRE DIARIES, and one that will have you wanting to keep reading until the very last page! If you are into adventure, love and vampires this book is the one for you!" (Turned)

DESTINED is book #4 in the #1 Bestselling series THE VAMPIRE JOURNALS, which begins with TURNED (Book #1).

In DESTINED (Book #4 in the Vampire Journals), Caitlin Paine wakes to discover herself back in time. She finds herself in a cemetery, on the run from a mob of villagers, and seeks refuge in the ancient cloisters of Assisi, in the countryside of Umbria, Italy. There, she learns of her destiny and her mission: to find her father and the ancient vampire Shield needed to save mankind.

But Caitlin’s heart still pines for her lost love: Caleb. She desperately needs to know if he has survived their trip back in time. She learns that her mission requires her to go to Florence, but if she wants to pursue matters of the heart, she must go to Venice. She chooses Venice.

Caitlin is overwhelmed at what she finds. Venice of the eighteenth century is a surreal place, men and women dressed in elaborate costumes and masks, celebrating an endless, lavish party. She is thrilled to discover and reunite with some of her close friends, and to be welcomed back into their coven. And she is excited to join them in Venice’s Grand Ball, the most important costume dance of the year, where she hopes, once again, to find Caleb.

But Caitlin is not the only one who can travel back in time: Kyle soon arrives, too, and is determined to hunt her down and kill her once and for all. Sam, too, arrives, determined to save his sister before it is too late.

At the Ball, Caitlin searches everywhere, and finds no sign of Caleb. That is, until the very last dance. She dances with a masked man who takes her heart away, and she feels certain that it is him. But as the partners change, she loses him again. Or does she?

Caitlin soon finds herself torn between the two loves of her life, and discovers that she has to be careful what she wishes for. Her joy at finding what she wants might just come mixed with tragedy and heartbreak.

In a climactic, action-packed ending, Caitlin finds herself up against true evil, Rome’s ancient vampire coven, and the most powerful vampire coven that ever existed. Surviving will demand all her skills, as she finds herself battling for her very life. She will have to sacrifice more than ever, if she is to save the one she loves….

    Morgan needs an editor besides spellcheck. The storyline is good and it keeps you intrigued, but the grammatical and spelling errors take away from it.

    By Gin DeathPanda
    I love the series Vampire Journals! I have seen many other authors try to recreate what Morgan has wrote but they just can't its not the same. These books keep you wanting more! Just when you think you know what the out come is BAM! thing are not what they seem which is what keeps the reader hooked. Can't wait to read book 5 Desired!
  • Great story but...

    By imavetek
    There are a TON of typos in this series! I'm on the fourth book and wow....every single book so far has pages where the wrong names are used, so you basically have to figure out what the names are suppose to be, your used instead of "you're", it went into first person back to third person...really obvious and terrible mistakes. I expect this from free books, but not books I'm paying for. I'm surprised no one has said anything yet! However, the story is great, keeps you on your toes for a youth fiction series. Just wish the publishers would edit the books a little better, or make them all free if not.

    First things first, this Series is Amazing!!! Highly recommended!! I bet your asking yourself the same question I did. "where did this series come from?". I've read over 15 Vampire series, and I gotta tell you this is in my top 3 of all times. It's gotta really cool story line, and I enjoyed every second of it very much. I read all 5 books with in 2 weeks! I hope there's more! Trust me when I say give this Series a chance because you will be very happy you did. Thanks, Don
