About Book

The sacrifices we make have the power to shift the very fabric of who we are, and ultimately who we are meant to be…
After learning of her true destiny as the intended Leader of the Tydes, Anastasia Whitman must now embark on a perilous quest to the Underworld before the age of eighteen in order to plant the seed of immortality and complete her essence to become a true Sea Goddess. But before she can make her legendary journey, an unexpected new student transfers to Lorelei; initiating a sequence of events that will unravel Stasia’s new life, and test the boundaries of her relationship with the mysterious, dark, and sexy Finn Morrison. The line between the Underworld and the Living begins to blur as gruesome ghosts, morbid reveries, and pure evil haunt her waking hours as well as her sanity. Once the details of Finn’s own startling destiny are revealed, the dangerous secrets he’s been hiding will threaten the very love Stasia believed to be indestructible. As time begins to run out, she will be forced to choose between the one she loves and the destiny she cannot escape.

My Thoughts

Wow ! Another keeper for sure. This continuing story just picked up where the last story left off.I never realized I was reading a new book! How fantastic is that.Another page turner that kept me up all night again but, I am not complaining this book was well worth it !

The danger became even more real for Stasia strangers are in town are now making her life a living hell.What to do ?After learning of her true destiny that she is the intended Leader of the Tydes. She must prepare herself for a quest to gain entrance to the underworld where she will gain her immortality.It is a dangerous quest she needs to learn to control all the powers she been gifted with to use in the up and coming fight. With the help of Finn and her friends she will learn all that she is capable of.Stasia is struggling with all of this its a lot to take on so soon. All these powers are coming so fast she has not been able to control them or learn even to use them to her advantage.She having reveries that she is not understanding.She is able to travel to the past and to the future and present just by dreaming.Learning some very discerning stuff as to what is to become or her...

Love all of character's.They were very brave, funny and characters for sure. We are introduced to even more characters as Stasia roommates are also learning to craft there own powers along with engaging in the dating scene themselves.

Got to say that Carmen was my favorite character this time around. That girl had such a demanding presence about her. She was one tough cookie.She made me laugh more then once with her altercations with Ricker.The couple had a love hate relationship.Carmen and Ricker had a past making there situation even more complicated. But, all the while all the tense fighting and teasing was going on you could tell Ricker truly cared about Carmen. If you ask me he really wore is heart on his sleeve.

Then we have Liam and Willow taking there stab at romance or trying to.There developing romance was slow they seemed to be testing the waters both of them.Well maybe more so Liam he was so painfully shy and Willow a little more bolder I think well, maybe in her mind.But, I really think they will make a really cute couple.One thing that this author did is create all her male love interests to carry on as gentlemen.I just love that.

I have to say that I just loved following Anastasia budding romance with Finn.He just kept getting and better in my eyes.Both are now taking there relationship toward the next level. Finn is an important part of Stasia future as well as her past he knows so much about her that even Stasia doesn't know.

I have to say that I kept getting more and more excited as Stasia learned one ability after another. She was so surprised at herself at the abilities she had mastered and learned to control and command. In a sense they really scared her a bit. She grew even more powerful than even her mother ever was and she held extreme power so you can only imagine the things Stasia was capable of a even surprising Finn.

Not only does Stasia have a destiny to follow so does Finn.He will need to fight is own brother to the death to take his next chosen place as the leader of there clan.Its a fight to the death for both. I can only imagine how that weighed on Finns thoughts and what Finn must have been going through not only worrying about his own path but Stasia's. I had one pet peeve or didn't like about Finn at times it felt as he kept a lot of information to himself about his own clan and destiny and Stasia's at times it seemed like he was trying to hide things.But, then on the other hand maybe he was trying to protect Stasia by not telling.What pressure he must have be under to know what he had to accomplish himself and still protect his love at the same time.

Even more intrigue is happening and even more twists and turns and now even a few road blocks.At this point Stasia and Finns relationship is be put to the test and Anastasia love is being tested.This couple will have to have faith in each other for there love to survive.Bombshells are dropped and are having you wonder if there relationship was nothing but a joke.

I have to say that Stasia's roommates all stepped up to the plate a rallied with Stasia supporting her in her quest to come.Helping anyway they can.You will be amazed to learn the sacrifices her pals were willing to make.They impressed me greatly.

Such a moving story with so many ups and downs so much intrigue and how much we were able to learn about all the characters pasts and what was expected of them for the future.Amazing relationships built on love and friendship being put to the test.

This is a book to be read again and again and will remain in my keeper pile .A recommended read to all ages. A fascinating story not to be missed.
