Review: Tidal by Amanda Hocking

Tidal (Watersong, #3)Genre: YA Paranormal
Release Date: 6/4/2013
Received from: Publisher for Review 

Goodreads: "Here"

With Penn and Lexi determined to kill Gemma and replace her with another siren, Gemma's life is in grave danger...unless she can break the curse before it's too late. With the help of Harper and Daniel, she'll delve deep into her enemies' mythical past--and their darkest secrets. It's her only hope of saving everything she holds dear: her family, her life, and her relationship with Alex--the only guy she's ever loved.


My Thoughts:

Tidal packs a punch. It's everything and more I've been waiting for this series to be. The character development in this book is the best so far in the series. Like all of Amanda Hocking's book other books I have read, I loved the writing. I highly recommend this author, series, and book.

 Tidal is the best book in this series so far. There a lot of questions that we have had since the first book answered in this book. We learn more about the sirens, and also about past sirens. There flash backs in Thea's point of view, which I loved a lot. There is Penn chapters, and seeing in to her is such a great addition to this book. I loved how unpredictable this book was, and also how unpredictable Penn still is even with chapters focusing on her. The development of the storyline was superb. I loved what happened in the story. I also loved how it setup for a great ending for the series in Elegy without taking away from what was happening in Tidal.

 The character development was also superb. Gemma changed a lot in this book. She really grew up, matured, realized her mistakes and her selfishness, and she stop relying on Harper as much as she did in the previous books. With Gemma not relying on Harper as much, we really get to see more of Harper than just seeing Harper taking care of Gemma and her problems; and I really liked that. I loved that with more chapters focusing on the sirens and the flash back chapters that it showed more of the sirens characteristics and behaviors.

 Like with every book I have read by Amanda Hocking I loved the writing. I love how she writes and how she brings these creatures to life in such a realistic and believable way. She also writes third person so beautifully and enjoyable even for me someone who personally doesn't like third person. Amanda Hocking's writing style is one of my favorites, and I highly recommend her books. 

 I loved Tidal. It is my favorite book of the series so far. I loved the character development. I loved reading about the sirens past and learning more about them. I loved the writing. I highly recommend Tidal, and The Watersong Series.

My Rating:

5 hearts, I loved it!
