The Vampire Diaries: The Hunters Vol. 3. Harper Teen, 2012. ISBN 9780062119605.
Elena has had to face many forces over the years. Now she is learning about her destiny as a Guardian. Elena has chosen Stefan, leaving Damon dark and extremely unpredictable. Elena tries to save Damon's soul while being with Stefan. Even though she is with Stefan she is still trying to figure out where her heart lies. Klaus has been resurrected and will stop at nothing until he destroys Elena - including those around her. While learning about her destiny as a Guardian, a protector of Earth, she uncovers that to defeat Klaus she must sacrifice someone close to her
The title Destiny Rising is well suited for the book and helps the reader picture what the novel may be about. The plot followed the same line but new problems kept arriving. The novel had me hanging onto the pages. The novel is exiting with tons of tension in the pages as I kept reading and I wanted to know how it ended.
