I would recommend this to the young adults who really like the sci-fy, mystery and imagination reads. Adults can also enjoy this book, with the understanding that it is for the young crowd, it is a bit hard to follow. If you don't get into the magic stuff this is not for you. If you enjoy imagination and going to fantasy places, you will enjoy this. I found this hard to follow, since I am not into the world of magic or reading this type of book and it was different for me to understand what was really going on. Some have said this is a Narnia type and I was able to watch the movie but not read the books. With that being said, I wouldn't say this is a bad book. Overall, I think it would be great for a teen, but I don't buy, read or watch this type of a storyline, just like alot of people don't like what I read, it depends on the person. You should read book one before this book, as the details in book one carry over to this story. I think if you haven't read book one you will not get the full effect or really understand the power and magic.

Across the Divide, a storm is brewing.
In a world where power determines position, word is spreading of the girl who possesses all three factors of magic. Some feel her existence heralds a new era.

Thanks so much for stopping by to hear a bit about Child of Destiny, book two in the Divide Series. I’m so excited to share it with all of you!
In this second book in the series, one of the characters enjoys a special treat. This yumminess goes by the name of Hazelnut Delight. It’s a simple, but fantastic recipe that only a very select few will receive. Shhh!!! It’s a family secret!
HAZELNUT DELIGHT RECIPE
What you’ll need:
2 homemade (or your favorite store-bought) pie crusts
1 jar of hazelnut spread
1. Roll out (or unroll) pie crust.
2. Using a spoon, coat the crust in a thin layer of hazelnut spread.
3. Start at one side and carefully roll the pie crust up (leave it resting on the seam to help seal.
4. Pinch the ends to close and seal them.
5. Cut the roll into slices (approx 1/2″).
6. Set the slices on their sides on a baking sheet. These will get gooey/sticky as they bake, so you may want to use a silicone baking liner.
TIP: If you like crunchier, flakier crusts, let the rolls loosen as you set them down, opening up the pinwheel shape a bit. If you like more solid, dense treats, leave them tightly rolled. Or, like me, let them land however they will and get a bit of both. ;-)
7. Bake at 375 for approx 20-25 minutes – until they are a deep golden brown.
Let cool a bit, and enjoy! You’ll be amazed at the yummy flavor. And as you read, you’ll be able to appreciate the scent and taste right along with the character. Happy Reading (and eating)!
