We are introduced to a few new characters in Destined. Firstly there’s Shaylin, the first marked red fledgling. She has a very interesting affinity – she has true site, she can see and understand the aura of people and vampyres, meaning she instantly becomes aware of the evilness surrounding Neferet. Shaylin is another character is Thanatos, who is one of the members of the vampyre high council. She is another strong female character, very level headed and likable. Thanatos has been sent to assess the situation at the House of Night surrounding Neferet’s recent behaviour and the creation of the second House of Night. She reveals to Zoey that she has an affinity for death, and she can see the Darkness surrounding Neferet. This means that, for once, Zoey has a vampyre on her side! Thanatos helps Zoey discover the truth behind what happened to her mum, resulting in a nice little twist at the end, with a little help from Nyx of course!
