Once a lost and confused princess, Serafina is now a confident leader of the Black Fin Resistance (BFR). While she works on sabotaging her enemy and enlisting allies for battle, her friends face challenges of their own. Ling is in the hold of Rafe Mfeme’s giant trawler, on her way to a prison camp. Becca meets up with Astrid and learns why the Ondalinian mermaid is always so angry: she is hiding a shameful secret. Ava can’t return home, because death riders await her arrival. And it is getting more and more difficult for Mahdi, Serafina’s betrothed, to keep up the ruse that he is in love with Lucia Volerno. If Lucia’s parents become suspicious, his life–and all of Sera’s hopes–will be extinguished. Political intrigue, dangerous liaisons, and spine-tingling suspense swirl like a maelstrom in this penultimate book in the WaterFire saga
We hit the water with a splash in the 3rd book in the Waterfire Saga.
Dark Tide picks up where Rogue Wave left off. The girls are on the hunt for the remaining talismans and their lifes a still in danger as the death riders hunt for them.
So let’s start with a little update on the girls.
♢Sera and Neela are now working with the Black Fin Resistance in a effort to save the realms.
♤ Astrid is heading home but is it the secret she is hiding from the girls or what she fines when she returns home that will seal her fate.
♢ Ling is held captive and what she learns will change not only her world but it will she’d light on who their enemy truly is.
♤ Ava is still looking for her talismans but will it be a mistake that will cost her everything.
♢Becca world will be further changed when her life is saved by a human.
The Waterfire saga is more then a story about mermaids. It is about finding inner strength and believing in yourself when everything seems hopeless. That you can be anything you want to be if you believe in you self.
It is refreshing to read a story were the females are not waiting to be rescued of saved by the leading male. The mermaids are the focus and the mermen are secondary characters in the story. Each mermaid bringing a different strength and courage.
The focus in Dark Tide is on Sera, Ling, and Astrid. With the story primaraly told from there POV. Another twist is the introduction of Lucia’s POV, with thus we get a glimpse into what’s happening in Miromara.
This is a beautifully crafted story, that pulls you into a underwater world. I can not wait to see what will happen next.
