International Giveaway! Tangled Tides by Karen Amanda Hooper ~ Review by Fallon


4 Out of 5 Stars

Author Description:

Yara Jones doesn't believe in sea monsters--until she becomes one.

When a hurricane hits her island home and she wakes up with fins, Yara finds herself tangled up in an underwater world of mysterious merfolk and secretive selkies. Both sides believe Yara can save them by fulfilling a broken promise and opening the sealed gateway to their realm, but they are battling over how it should be done. The selkies want to take her life. The merfolk want something far more precious.

Treygan, the stormy-eyed merman who turned Yara mer, will stop at nothing and sacrifice everything to protect his people--until he falls for Yara. The tides turn as Yara fights to save herself, hundreds of sea creatures, and the merman who has her heart. She could lose her soul in the process--or she might open the gateway to a love that's deeper than the oceans.

Fallon's Review:

A man shows up one night during a hurricane and Yara wakes with a tail. Yara is the key to saving their world. Yara has a boyfriend named Rownan but soon discovers that she may not know him as well as she thinks she does. Treygan the merman who turned Yara into a mermaid is the strong willed merman that fights for his people at all costs till he ends up falling in love with Yara. 

I just finished this book. I thought this was such a beautiful love story. I loved the relationships in the book with the exception of Rownan. I could not stand him even when the writing tried to appeal to his point of view. But i loved Yara and Tregan. Tregan is the type of man you want to fall in love with you and fight for you. I loved the friendship they built. 

I think the author combined all these mythologies in a harmonious way. There were so many incredible Mythologies included in this book that you will never get bored. I would recommend this book for sure a must read and even a stand alone book. I am giving this book 4 out of 5 stars.

  1. I started to read this book over a year ago, but just couldn't get past the smoking of "seaweed" as a source of sustenance. I am not a smoker, and never found it attractive. It ruined reading this one for me. :( I did like it up to that point though.
