GHBT- Diamond Peak Series by Tahlia Newland- Review of Eternal Destiny

Eternal Destiny
Series- Diamond Peak Series Book #4
By- Tahlia Newland
Genre- YA Fantasy

Ariel and Nick face their deepest fears and their greatest challenge as they search for the Master Demon who holds the key to the future of mankind. Slay him and the world goes free; fail, and it falls irrevocably into violence and chaos.

Guided by a wisdom master of a mystical tradition that uses mind power as the basis of powerful magic, the assault party travels from the ancient granite walls of the Hermitage, up the Steps of Death, and through a labyrinth of shifting gorges to the Palace of Skulls. Even if Nick wins his struggle with the scars of his past and defeats the green-eyed head of the Cogin clan, they still must cross the scree slope, where the bones of Ariel's father lie, to get to the ice caves beneath the summit where the Master Demon awaits.

The journey is extraordinary, the enemies are deadly and the ending is mind-blowing.

This book has been awarded the AIA Seal of Excellence in Fiction

Eternal Destiny by Tahlia Newland is the fourth and final book in The Diamond Peak Series by Tahlia Newland. For the last time we follow Ariel, Nick, and their interesting team of characters on their extraordinary journey as they plot to defeat the Master Demon.

I have greatly enjoyed reading this series. Newland created so many in depth and colorful characters that it's just impossible not to fall in love with them. Ariel was a BAMF and Nick was adorable, and my favorite character still holds true to be Twitchet, the talkative feline friend.

All loose ends are tied up very nicely in this final installment and I leave this series with great satisfaction.  Beautifully written and descriptive with excellent characters and an astounding, original plot. I will definitely return to Newland for her future novels.

My Rating:

Tahlia Newland, author of the multi-award-winning Diamond Peak Series, writes heart-warming and inspiring magical realism and contemporary fantasy. She is also an editor, a reviewer, an occasional high school teacher, and a mask-maker who loves creating digital art and sitting on her veranda staring at the rain forest.

Tahlia has studied with top Australian editors and has a Certificate in Editing and Proofreading. Before writing full time, she had over 20 years’ experience in scripting and performing as a dancer/mine in Visual Theatre and Theatre in Education. She has had extensive training in meditation and Buddhist philosophy and lives in Australia with a husband, a teenage daughter, and a cheeky Burmese cat called George.
