Review:
I want to first start off by saying that Forks is an amazing author that has an ability to take an idea and develop an amazing little plot bunny. This fic is no different.
 
I started reading this fic, in part because of my wife. She loves Forks’ writing and talked about it all time, so I decided to give it a try. Also, Forks reads my works, so like any good author, we return the favor and I am so glad that I did.

First this is NOT a cannon story. Edward is not Bella’s love interest, so if you don’t do non-cannon, turn and run now! However, I beg each of you reading this POW to give it a try. You will not be surprised.

This story starts with Bella packing to return to Italy, The University of Florance, for her school semester, but she is back in Forks for her father’s funeral. Charlie had been killed by a robber the week prior.  She had not seen her father since she was a girl, as she lived in Miami with her mother and Phil.

My mother, Phil and I returned to Forks for my father's funeral. It seemed as though the whole town was in attendance, including the entire Quileute reservation from La Push. This was my mother's first time back since she left my father when I was a baby.

After the funeral, she leaves for Italy.

I arranged for an apartment on campus and I couldn't wait to see all the places from the books and tourist guides I had diligently read as soon as I knew I was headed for Italy. I looked forward to visiting the artistic sites such as the Pitti Palace, the Uffizi Museum, Michelangelo's famous sculpture of David, and the Ponte Vecchio Bridge which was the oldest of its kind in Florence.

She arrives in Italy and settles into her apartment. She decides to go one night. Here is where she meets, as Forks puts it, “the person that would change my life forever,” Heidi.

She walked up to me, breathed me in and said, "You smell lovely."
I hadn't noticed her walk up to me. I didn't hear her foot steps. She was pale with purple eyes. I pulled slightly away from her and raised my eyebrows at her. What a strange thing to say to someone. "Thank you. I guess," I said.
"Please excuse my forwardness," she apologized with a smile that dazzled. "My name is Heidi. From your accent I assume you are American. I too am American and miss the aromas of home."
"Oh…sorry for my reaction," I said with a chuckle. "It just sounded like you wanted to eat me."
"Have you been in Italy long?" she asked as we began to walk slowly through the square.
"No I just arrived and was taking a walk."
"Are you here on a family vacation?"
"No. I am here for a semester at the university. I don't know anyone yet and was hoping to make friends and learn my way around."

Heidi takes her to the castle, Volterra.

Jasper’s POV (The Major) has been waiting for his beauty for 60 years. Alice told him that he had a perfect mate and he just had to be patient.  Her visions of his mate had always been obscure, then all of the sudden she could see her perfectly. Jasper’s coven is the Cullen’s, led by the one and only, Carlisle.

Emmett was already opening the doors to the back-porch before Edward had even finished his response. We all stood to follow him when Alice cried out, "NO!" Edward was immediately at her side. The horrors of Alice's vision clear on his face.
"What is it?" I asked, hoping that we had time to prepare for whatever was coming.
"She's alone. She's changing all alone," Alice whispered, still lost in her vision.
"Who? Who is changing?" I could not help the growl in my voice as I asked for more information.
Alice turned to look at me, her eyes filled with the venomous tears she could never release. "Your mate."

Bella Arrives at the castle, Heidi was leading to her death. Bella tries to get away, but Heidi holds her tight, as vampires drink the rest of the tourists that arrived with them on the bus.

Heidi put her hand to my chin and turned my face to expose my neck. "I am sorry, dear. But you must know that you exist to sustain us." She licked her lips and opened her mouth, exposing her sharp, glistening teeth. The shriek that had been lodged in my throat was ready to escape when I heard a man call out in an assertive voice. "Heidi, release her! That one is mine."

Aro, takes Bella,

The robed, monstrous man placed his hard cold hands on my upper arms and lifted me, my feet dangling off the floor. "Why run my dear? It will do you no good."
I could feel my teeth begin to chatter as my body shook uncontrollably. I was staring death in the eyes and I had no way to escape. The monster before me had perfect features. His white skin had a glowing appearance. Smooth and thin, almost translucent – it contradicted the blackness of his long hair that framed his face and his piercing eyes were black as night.
He placed me on the floor and his right arm snaked around my waist, pulling me flush against his stone-like body. He raised his other hand to brush my hair aside before grabbing the back of my head to expose my neck. I closed my eyes and braced myself for the pain of his teeth sinking into my flesh, but it did not come. I opened my eyes to see that he was looking at me with furrowed eyebrows. It was a look I could only describe as confused.
"So very interesting," he said in a low voice calling for someone by name. "Jane, dear?"
In an instant a small cloaked girl was standing by his side. "Yes, Master Aro?"

Here, Aro allows Jane to try too torture Bella. Nothing happened, and Aro was truly excited. He decided to give Bella the gift of immortality. Bella tried too resist, but Aro sank his teeth into her anyway.

Aro then gives Bella to Felix to take to a room, to assist and wait for the change to happen.

Once Bella awakens from her change, she meets with the brothers Aro, Caius, and Marcus. Instantly they can see that Bella is different, special even.  She shows that she has not desire to feed the way the Volturi. Realizing that he can not train her, Aro decides to call his old friend, Carlisle to see if his coven would be willing to take Bella under their wings.  The connection between Bella and Jasper is immediate.

How will this story continue, as I will NOT spoil anymore. I will tell you that Jasper in this story is one of my favorites, as his love for Bella is so intense, only to be coupled by Forks’ ability to describe with such fluidity in her writing.

This is a story littered with love, humor and yes a little angst along the way. I hope that you will give this story a try, as I could probably tell you the entire story but I will leave the experience to you.

Also, leave this author a review, as she always responds! I hope you enjoy, Visions of Our Destiny, as I know I have.

Thanks,
