A brief summary from Goodreads:
With the witch of Doon on the throne, Jamie believed dead, and Duncan and Mackenna trapped in Alloway, Veronica has no choice but to put her grief aside and prepare her remaining followers for the impending battle against the false queen and her forces. But while on a covert mission to steal a powerful elixir from the castle, Veronica discovers her true love may actually be alive, and fighting a battle of his own.
With the Brig o’ Doon destroyed and the portal fragmented, Doon’s forces are not only divided, but also isolated in different dimensions. With the help of a storyteller as ancient as the witch herself, Kenna and Duncan learn they must rebuild the bridge to have any chance of crossing back into Doon with their ragtag army. But when Mackenna insists on fighting as well, Duncan soon realizes the only way he can ensure her safety is to turn her into a cold-hearted killer.
For Vee, Jamie, Kenna, and Duncan, saving their kingdom while keeping their lives intact will take a miracle.
I did not realize that Forever Doon was the final book in a series and as a result, found myself completely lost throughout most of the novel. This is definitely not one of those stand-alone novels in a series that you can read by itself and still know exactly what is going on. I can’t stress enough how important it is to read the prior 3 novels in the Doon series before reading Forever Doon!!
Beyond that, Forever Doon read like it was geared more toward pre-teens than adults. Plot twists are tied up nicely, a host of interesting characters, and intriguing portals between fantasy and the modern world. I’d be interested in starting this series from the very beginning.
I was graciously provided a free copy of this novel from BookLook Bloggers in exchange for an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review and the opinions I have expressed are my own.
