Great sequel to Divine by Mistake. Tongue-in-cheek humor again flows through the book. Surprise ending - really good read.

Cute book. Not a lot of depth to the writing but a fun "fluff" book for an easy and relaxing read!

âDivine By Choiceâ
A Novel of Parthalon
By
P.C. Cast

Shannon Parker, Beloved of Epona and now living in the lap of luxury in Parthalon is suddenly pulled back into the modern world from whence she came. Summoned back by the mirror image of her centaur husband, ClanFintan, Clint Freeman a handsome and brave former Air Force pilot has been battling with Shannon's evil twin Rhiannon.

But Shannon isn't the only one who has been pulled out of Parthalon. The evil spirit of the demon Shannon helped to vanquish in âDivine By Mistakeâ Nuada has followed her into the modern world and is threatening her friends and family. Together with Clint Shannon must find a way to stop Nuada, Rhiannon, and the other evil forces that are keeping her from returning to the world she has come to love.

After the first few chapters of âDivine By Choiceâ I was not holding out much hope for the book as a whole. The slow start had my eyes skimming passages and at times pages, waiting for the actual plot to start.

Despite the slow start however, about 50 pages in the story finally started to snowball and it continued from there culminating in a page-turning end. I think Cast sort of did herself a disfavor by not making the ending a cliffhanger however. Don't get me wrong, I want to read the next book in the series, but I can wait on it, I'm not rushing out to buy the book so I can start ASAP.

Overall this is another classic Cast book. Lots of mystery, good love scenes, and some excitement sprinkle her fantasy novels. As I tell my students, sprinkles are no good without a yummy sundae underneath. Fortunately for Cast her sundae is just as yummy as her sprinkles. She has a great story/theme running with the Partholon series and I find myself more drawn to her as an author the more I read her works.

Cast keeps the adventure and excitement from her first book âDivine by Mistakeâ going in âDivine by Choice,â a definite can't miss for Cast fans or anyone looking for a fun and adventurous series. Keep âem coming P.C.!

Four Stars.

WONDERFUL!!!!

What can I say? I really like this installment in the series. I love getting to see a little bit of how Rhiannon handles the modern world especially. I enjoy Shannon, but I'm also very curious about the story from the opposite point of view. I'm just drawn to hearing both sides of it all, I guess.

I am a little sad about some of the events in the book, particularly the death of a character. It feels a little weird and possibly unnecessary. There is another death centric scene that was quite a bit disturbing and I wasn't in love with it. However, there are other parts I really enjoy. For example, I love the name of ClanFintan's mirror in Oklahoma. I find it highly entertaining for some reason. I also enjoy the plot for the most point. I look forward to reading the next installment soon. :)

Series seems to be getting lame with age. The author likes to write about "rules" in magic yet there are definitely some issues with paradox, like kids being born in one world, yet being aborted in another. With those kinds of inconsistencies, it makes for a poorly planned out "alternate universe" and just leaves room open for too many obvious "butterfly effects".
