Halen knows the sparks igniting under her fingertips are dangerous. She has spent her entire life trying to quell the tingly feelings that make her destroy things, but now that she is back in Rockaway Beach, where she watched her father drown, the flames have become impossible to tame.
Halen is trying to hold on, but when she is thrust into a mysterious new world, the underwater realm of Elosia, she unravels the secrets of her past and can’t help but ignite. As she explores Elosia, she realizes her life has been a lie. And when those who have deceived her come to her for help, Halen must choose–walk away or unleash the magick that could destroy them all.
I’m a huge cover lover and buyer and this book was a must have when It catched my eye the first time.
It was my first book from Tiffany Daune and also the first siren and mermaid story I have ever read. ( I don’t count „The Little Mermaid“ coz it’s a fairy tale) I wasn’t expecting much and just dived into the book, but I got immediately hooked and sucked into the storyline. It was so hard to put the book down and get some night sleep.
The writing is so visual and full of wonderful words and you just wish to dive into the sea and explore Elosia with your own eyes. I love all the different characters and got quite attached to Ezra. <3 The whole time I felt really sorry for Halen and got mad that they kept her in the dark. I would be fearful myself, but even if she is struggling so much, she is accepting it and trying so hard to fulfill her purpose. And what I treasure most about the book – it is a fantasy story that doesnt get taken over by a romance plot and this is all I wish for in this genre. Sure Halen has feelings and the sparks between her and Dax, but thats it. No focus on the romance, just on her magic and the darkness in the blue moon siren itself.
Reading a story where mermaids are not the typical nice fairytale princesses, but really dark and bad creatures, was a plot twist I totally enjoyed.
This book is totally worth 5 ***** stars and I loved every minute I read it. I recommend this siren story to all fantasy lovers out there, which treasure reading fantasy without too much romance in it. Hopefully I don’t have to wait too long for the second book in the series.
