With the witch of Doon on the throne, Jamie believed dead, and Duncan and Mackenna trapped in Alloway, Veronica has no choice but to put her grief aside and prepare her remaining followers for the impending battle against the false queen and her forces. But while on a covert mission to steal a powerful elixir from the castle, Veronica discovers her true love may actually be alive, and fighting a battle of his own. With the Brig o’ Doon destroyed and the portal fragmented, Doon’s forces are not only divided, but also isolated in different dimensions. With the help of a storyteller as ancient as the witch herself, Kenna and Duncan learn they must rebuild the bridge to have any chance of crossing back into Doon with their ragtag army. But when Mackenna insists on fighting as well, Duncan soon realizes the only way he can ensure her safety is to turn her into a cold-hearted killer. For Vee, Jamie, Kenna, and Duncan, saving their kingdom while keeping their lives intact will take a miracle.
The time has come for the final battle for Doon. Mackenna, Veronica, Jamie, Duncan, the Doonians and the Destined must put aside their worries and join together in a battle that not only determines the outcomes of their lives but also for the very existence of the kingdom they love. Defeating an evil witch with an undead army will be the challenge of a lifetime. Some will live and others will die.
Forever Doon is a solid conclusion to the Doon series. The characters from the good guys to the not so good guys got what I thought was a satisfying fate. In the end of all things, Veronica and Mackenna remained the quirky girls they’ve always been but after the harrowing events they fought through, the girls gain a maturity that leaves them optimistic but cautious of the future to come. The romance between the two pairs was sugary sweet, almost enough for cavities. Veronica still is my favorite and Mackenna, well, still a little bit annoying. Sorry Mac.
