The thrilling sequel to The TALISMANS of TIME
The engines whined as the nose of the jumbo jet dove toward the ground below. Cassidy watched, helpless, as her best friend got sucked toward the gaping hole in the side of the plane.
In an instant, she was gone.
The man who had been sent to bring them to their new life at the Academy sprang out of his seat. He wasn’t just being sucked toward the hole—he was running toward it. Cassidy screamed as she saw him jump after Stefani...
...and disappear.
“I am not the Pathfinder of Destiny—whatever that means,” Cassidy said.
“It means,” said Gamela, “that the fate of the world depends on you.”
Cassidy hadn’t asked for this. She was a loner. An asthmatic, claustrophobic C-student from Detroit with one real friend and no real talent.
Or so she thought.
But the kindly and mysterious Mrs. Giles knows better. She knows Cassidy has a special gift, and that she needed a special school to develop it.
Now, Cassidy finds herself at the Academy of the Lost Labyrinth, surrounded by other students who can travel through time, walk through dreams, change shapes and manipulate memories. But she feels more alone than ever, because something is going terribly wrong at the Academy, and only she can fix it.
The problem is, she has no idea how.
Fans of Academy novels, Harry Potter, The Wizard of Oz, Alice in Wonderland and The Labyrinth will love Book 2 of this fanciful and thrilling adventure through the Lost Labyrinth. Pick it up today!

Cassidy never thought of herself as something special but I assumed someone did when she received an invitation to attend the Academy of the Lost Labyrinth, a special secret school for people with special powers or abilities. Cassidy’s world is about to change and in ways she never imagined.

Cassidy has entered a world of magical creatures. She is meeting new people with special powers. She has met shape shifters, mind readers among other magical abilities. Cassidy has also been informed that she is a pathfinder. No one has seen a new pathfinder in many years.

There is something bad going on at the school and Cassidy is the only one who can fix it and make it all better and if she doesn’t then it could be very sad for all the students at the academy.

Pathfinder of Destiny is a very unique and intriguing book that will grab your attention from the first sentence and never let go until you have turned the last page. The world building is amazingly awesome in its own way as well as the characters that are just as amazing.

Pathfinder of Destiny introduces us to some new characters but also brings back some old characters from the first book The Talismans of Time. It also introduces us to shape shifters, familiars, magical creatures and dragons.

I really enjoyed Pathfinder of Destiny way more than its predecessor The Talismans of Time. I love the academy setting and the world that was created for it. I can’t wait for more adventures in this fabulous world at the Academy of the Lost Labyrinth.

If you are into stories like Harry Potter with magic and academy settings then you are going to love Pathfinder of Destiny. One click your copy today!
