Gemma and Harper Fisher are facing the fight of their lives. Gemma has been cursed with extraordinary powers that have a terrifying dark side, but she’s finally found what she needs―a way to break the curse and become human again. But finding the means to do it will be her greatest challenge yet. And now Penn, Lexi and Thea―the gorgeous but deadly creatures who cursed her―are determined to kill her before she has a chance. Making matters worse, Penn has her sights set on Daniel―the guy Harper loves―and Penn always gets what she wants.
As Gemma and Harper race to break the curse before it’s too late, they’re thrust deeper into a mythical world of immortal secrets. They must delve into their enemies’ past to find the answers they need, even if it means being drawn deeper into their savagely beautiful world. But one of the girls is not what she seems…and Gemma finds an unlikely ally as she struggles to save herself. But will it be enough to break an ancient curse that no one has ever escaped alive?
I am giving Tidal by Amanda Hocking 4/5 stars.
YAY I found my favorite book in The Watersong Series!
Tidal is the third novel in The Watersong Series and in my opinion the best in terms of character development and background development. In Wake and Lullaby, we learn more so of the recent history of the sirens and the Fisher family, but in Tidal we begin to dive deeper into the Greek mythology behind the sirens and their life after being turned into the sirens.
I will have to say Tidal confirmed who my favorite character in the series is and the character is…THEA! Honestly, whenever Thea was in a scene in this book I found her stealing the show, well until the end which was all Lexi which I am quite alright with, especially with how it went down. I personally am all about the siren group conflicting with one another throughout Tidal really leaving them vulnerable to the Fisher girls and their friends, but also to themselves.
In Tidal we are introduced to a few new characters like Liv Harper’s college roommate and Marcy’s high school friend who runs a bookshop in the town that Harper will be going to school that has a section on the supernatural. These characters do add some interesting twists to the story and will go on to appear and play a larger roll in Elegy.
Overall Tidal was a great book and a quick read as it keeps you entertained and wanting to know what is going to happen next. If you liked Wake and Lullaby you will surely enjoy Tidal.
