Mackenna Reid left behind the fairytale land of Doon for her love of theater. But when her Calling arrives in the form the Doonian prince she left on the bridge- Duncan- she begins to have her doubts. By telling Mackenna that her best friend Veronica, who is Queen of Doon, needs her help to fight an ancient curse, she turns her back on the real-world giving up her final performance of her show. Thinking the return would be simple, Mackenna is shocked by the reality that her once-lover Duncan does not want to be around her… but does love ever truly die? Can Duncan and Mackenna re-kindle the love they once had while saving Doon? To answer these questions, you will have to read Destined for Doon by Carey Corp and Lorie Langdon.

This is the second book written by the co-authors exploring the adventures of Mackenna Reid, Duncan, and Veronica. While I did not have the opportunity to read the first book, I was able to understand what had happened previously. One aspect of the book that I enjoyed was references to modern-day musicals, such as Les Miserables. I also enjoyed how it was written I alternating perspectives between Veronicaq and Mackenna, which provided more insight as how Doon appears to very different best friends. Despite the 350+ pages, it was a quick-read because I craved to find out if Mackenna could not only save Doon but make up for her past. A good read for anyone interested in fantasy.
