"Awesome!! I just completely loved it and just simply couldn't put it away. I would very much recommend as a must read" ❤ ~ Amazon Review

"Brilliant - a series to rival Rick Riordan's Percy Jackson series."

~ Cruz, Amazon

"...I found myself transported back to Twilight and various others of its like. Fortunately, Sampson was a redeeming and fascinating character, and the complex relationship he has with Laurel grew more and more interesting as the book progressed."
~ Veritas Vincit, Amazon

"This story is dark, intelligent, and entirely gripping. The writing is smooth, the characters are relatable, and the descriptions are vivid."
~ Horrorgirldonna, Amazon

"A well- crafted story, written in the first person and present tense which makes it enjoyable to read and learn."

~ Scarlett, Amazon

"I can actually see this book possibly being made into a television series or movie series some day it was just that entertaining. It was as good as the Vampire Diaries, and that is really saying a lot."

~ Nichole, Goodreads

"The characters are amazingly complex - which cannot be said for many other 'teen stories' - and, again, the mythology/demigod elements make Destined a unique entry in my eBook collection."
~ Phoenix, Amazon

"A new series that I hope will catch fire for the masses. It isn’t a basic “Twilight” romance that tries to appeal to an overgeneralized crowd, instead, Sand creates a great new novel that rivals Rick Riordan’s “Percy Jackson” series with the use of mythological ideologies and beliefs."
~ Renee, Amazon

"The combination of romance and mystical always seems to work well and that’s the case here too. In some ways, the style reminds me a bit of Twilight but it’s nice to see something original rather than vampires yet again."
~ Cassandra, Amazon 

"This novel is a teenage romance with a twist and is obviously written to compete with the Twilight type trend in teenage fiction. Similar to Percy Jackson but for an older audience, it incorporates Greek mythology into modern times. Readers should know that it includes mature subject matter and some language, so is most appropriate for an older teen audience." 

~ Purple, Amazon

"I especially loved the way the author organized the book as it reveals details at just the right time. This tactic made the mystery even more compelling and makes me anticipate the next book in the series. This story is a must for teens who love fantasy and romance or adults who really enjoy a YA novel from time to time."

~ Chelsey, Amazon

"Beatrice Sand does a fantastic job merging demigods with mortals in this young adult romance."
~ Peggy, Amazon

 

"In the acknowledgement section at the back of this book, the author, Beatrice Sand, writes, “I hope I can compete with all those vampires out there.” I must say she need have no worries on this score; her story can stand proud next to the likes of the Twilight and Vampire diaries series of books."

~ Sdan 12, Goodreads

"I was afraid my lack of knowledge about Greek mythology would leave me confused at what was going on, but the author explained those aspects well, so I never felt lost in a bad way - just "lost" in the mystery of the story."
~ Abigail, Amazon

"Although the story of forbidden and dangerous romance is threshed, I really liked the book as it is not just that."
~ Fausto, Amazon

"This story was something new to me, meaning I have not come across a book with this type of story line, it was refreshing."
~ Denise, Amazon

"It has all the staples of a good teen romance but the major bonus is the addition of Greek mythology. The author has clearly done her research. I am a history buff and know my ancient greek myths so it was a great pleasure to read this very original story. It is fast-paced and interesting at the same time. The heroine is gorgeous, the hero handsome and sexy – there is even naked wrestling among the hero’s friends - what more could we want?"
~ PussyCat, Amazon

" ...the story is well thought out, suspenseful, and has the right amount of action and lulls."
~ Mint tea, Amazon

"The way the story is written makes it flow easily from one chapter to the other where you keep discovering who Sampson really is, and what things are predestinated to happen."

Quirru, Amazon 

"... everything about it feels so fresh and engaging. [...]The story is full with mysteries, you can sense it between the dialogue and some scenes, that there are some bigger concerns out there and a lot of history forgotten; it’s nice that this is a confirmed trilogy because I can’t wait to read and find out more about this new and fascinating world."
~ Julius, Amazon

"She weaves her characters for this trilogy with grace and a profound respect for that part of life about which we understand little. Placing a demigod in an urban setting with the resultant consequences establishes a new field of literary exploration for the reader – and for the subsequent books in her planned trilogy [...] It seems Beatrice has struck gold (or might that be Valhalla?). A fine start to a sound adventure, written in eloquent prose."

~ Grady, Amazon

"Destined is a breathtaking page-turner! Beatrice Sand takes you on an adventure. She leaves space for your own imagination. The characters really come to live. And you really can feel with their emotions of hapiness, pain, despair and fear. I can' t wait for the second book to read!"

~ Amazon Review

"This first installment builds up gradually and becomes compulsive. It's heartfelt with a multitude of emotions. The way it ends has left me wanting for more."~Livres Recommende (*****)

"There is an undeniable attraction between Laurel and Sam, which the author beautifully introduces at their first meeting, and builds each time they meet. This book will appeal to anyone who enjoys the mystery of a sexy, dangerous story and although it is not a thriller it is certainly a thrilling read. If you enjoyed the Twilight Saga you will love The Ambrosia Trilogy!"

~ MoMo's Book Diary (****)
