"You cannot know what light is if you have not experienced darkness"
Ava and her people have been exiled to the planet Poseidon for reasons she can't fathom. Upon meeting a boy from a different sector, her life turns into a beautiful chaos. She begins to feel things she isn't allowed to, thus motivating her to find out the truth about why her kind are so different, and why the Council are so interested in her. Once her mind is freed, with it comes a terrible power that could either save her kind, or destroy them all. But Ava is not the perfect heroine. She will become what she hates to save the ones she loves, and the cost of such a burden is deadly at best.

About the author:

Carlyle is a best selling South African award 
wining author, with a flair for mixing genres and adding loads of drama to every story she creates. she has traveled the world with her books in hopes of connecting with all kinds of book loving people, to learn as much as she can from other book cultures with the hopes of bringing the knowledge back to her home country.
For now she is happy to take over the world and convert non Sci-fi believers.
Her goal as an author is to touch people's lives, and help others love their differences and one another by delivering strong messages of faith, love and hope within every outrageous world she writes about.
"I love to swim, fight for the trees, and am a food lover who is driven by my passion for life. I dream that one day my stories will change the lives of countless teenagers and have them obsess over the world literacy can offer them instead of worrying about fitting in. Never sacrifice who you are, its in the dark times that the light comes to life."


SO, I was given a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion.
I love the all plot, although I think, or it seems, as if the author wrote as the ideas came to her mine, since nothing has really an explanation or background to justify it. It just happens. No real chain of events.
Resultado de imagem para the broken destinyI really liked Ava and Sam and Maya and towards the end Troy. Oh and Tatos! I want to know so much more about him! And about Sage! I need a bit more of lot of characters in the book. They're absolutely fascinating.
Also anything involving magic, coming of age, depression, adventure, romance, and danger is awesome! At least for me, we could say it's my cup of tea.
The whole world is fascinating. It's amazing how the author succeeded in creating and alien world that seems so much like Earth all the while being so different.
The different peoples where also something I did quite enjoy, since it reflects a bit what happens on our planet and how bad Humans can be.
The writing, well it's not awful but it's not great, you see, Ava is a very rational person, I think Carlyle really did achieve to portray that; however, that breaks the passe of the book a bit. Things also move a bit quicker than the ideal, some very important information is left out or really important scenes are cut in between.
The two things I disliked the most was how Ava came to realise something and just like that she was right and the thing happened. How very helpful. The other thing was how Ava's relationship with *** doesn't really evolve or builds itself, it just happens. They stare at each other, they feel their hearts jump and they're in love. It just doesn't make much sense for me BUT if you like love at first sight, you'll love The Broken Destiny.

Over all I loved the book. And I'm looking forward to getting my hands on the second one. I need to know what happens next on Ava's journey.
