Don't miss Tidal, the spellbinding third book in the Watersong series by New York Times bestselling author Amanda Hocking!

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?

Sirens Penn and Lexie for now are leaving Gemma alone while they search for another girl to take her place. Meaning Gemma doesn’t have much time to find out how to break the curse before she’s killed. Things back home aren’t going that great either. Alex hates her; Harper goes overboard trying to look out for Gemma, and Daniel is having problems of his own which include one very persistent siren. Gemma needs to find the cure so she can help not only herself but those she loves too.

I’m a huge fan of Amanda Hocking. This is the third book in the WAKE series. TIDAL picks right up where the last book ended without skipping a beat. You’re pulled right back into the story as Gemma, Daniel, and Harper try to find out how to break a millennium old curse. Seems the Greek mythological creatures were in fact real including sirens who are real men eaters.

Gemma is back home and struggling with not falling under the siren’s call. She even joins the local theater production to help burn off nervous energy.

Gemma’s family dynamics are more complex than ever. Not only does she struggle with her own attraction to being a siren, there’s the pain of knowing she’s broken the heart of the boy she’s loved forever. I loved how Hocking’s shows this with the pull Alex feels and tries hard to break. He hates Gemma but in his dreams he knows he loved her once. The confusion drives Alex to almost drive off the dead end. Harper and Daniel’s relationship grows even to the point that she seriously starts to question her goal of going to college.

The sirens are as beautiful and deadly as ever. Penn is one nasty piece of work and she has her eyes on another mortal close to Gemma. I did like how the one siren,Thea shows some vulnerabilities with her own conflicts on whether to stand up to her sisters or say nothing to their plans to kill Gemma. There’s also a huge revelation that shows the sirens past and how it might be replaying itself.

Hocking’s is one masterful storyteller. Her words pull you right into her stories. You don’t want to leave!

Mesmerizing paranormal with sirens with a deadly bite, this story will have you coming back for more!
Good Points
1. Hocking’s is one masterful storyteller. Her words pull you right into her stories.
