    The final battle between F'Dor and the triad that leads the opposition (Rhapsody, Achmed, and Grunthor) seems eminent. Though the intrepid trio has defeated F'Dor in the recent past, history cannot guarantee final victory. Grunthor trains his army for the omega confrontation while Rhapsody and Achmed search the countryside for F'Dor's “children” to perhaps enable a backdoor to the malevolent being.

    The threesome understands that no one can be trusted except one another as F'Dor can reach inside to exploit the evil that every person contains. As Rhapsody, Achmed, and Grunthor step closer to the conclusive war, each one of them doubts that they are the saviors that are mentioned in the PROPHECY, wondering if they are still manipulated by the F'Dor to bring about the end of the world.

    DESTINY completes Elizabeth Haydon's incredibly action-packed yet authentic feeling fantasy trilogy (see RHAPSODY and PROPHECY), which may be the genre's best miniseries of the past decade. The story line is fascinating due to the belief that this realm is real, the events seem as if they truly happened, and the key characters feel genuine all leading to the audience wanting more from Haydon's world. As fans and critics rhapsodize about this author's awesome talent, it is easy to make a prophecy that Ms. Haydon is destined to greatness if she has not already obtained the mantle.
