Fate has a strange way of ruining our lives. I've lost both my parents - killed by the same man, the same man who altered me at birth! He screwed me up by splitting my soul in two halves: a normal self and an annoying demon self that I can't control. But that's beside the point. Being "destined" is a privilege in my world. According to some fishy prophecy, three lucky saps get to go on a suicidal mission to kill the enemy of the world, who is my parents' killer. My two partners have no idea that I'm just using this "destined" thing as a tool to avenge my parents.
Follow Matt and his mischievous friend Gemini in hilarious conflicts involving mind-controlling gemstones created by an ancient tribe called the Iyans. Will Matt survive Gemini's teases or will she gain full control of his mind? This girl aims to wield all four of the gems: Demand, Love, Kindness, and Hate. Matt is clever. But is he clever enough to best the girl that knows every part of him? The top girl that not only has everyone's favor (teachers included) but may be part Iyan herself.

The events of The Destined in my point of view. I am Vile, of the Dark Ones. I'm a bad-ass, I swear a lot, I like women and I'm bound by a ruthless prophecy like a slave. It's me, a crazy psychotic woman, and...a celebrity, I think. Someone kill me please. Being a Dark One sucks.
