The essence of who we
are lies not in what we have, but in what we are willing to give up.
Because in the end, Time and Tide wait for no one.
sacrificing all that she had, the evil princess of the Underworld is
still successful in her bid to tear Finn from Stasia’s life. In the
midst of her search to reclaim him, Stasia is summoned to the island
nation of Cyprus to take part in an age-old ritual; unveiling the
missing pieces of her ancestry and re-igniting an ancient war. As she
struggles to both save Finn’s soul and free Carmen’s mind, Stasia’s
bravery and determination will be pushed to its breaking point. A dark
storm is forming on the horizon, and the forces who are vying to destroy
her may be much closer than she thinks. Destiny weaves a sticky web of
evil, betrayal, and revenge that can only be undone by the purity of
love and the soul’s unyielding will to survive. In the last installment
of the Daughters of the Sea trilogy, the past will collide with the
present as Stasia’s future hangs in the balance. The prophecy that
paved the way for her new life may indeed be the very thing that strips
her of the ones she loves the most.
This best series I have read so far this year !I have to stay that I haven't been this excited about a series since reading Claudy Conn's Shadow series.Once I started reading I was already feeling a loss thinking that this is the conclusion to this on going series. I am so sad...
Another fabulous read! Another sleepless night well worth it !I have to say how impressed I am with this author and her writing .Her books never included a dull moment and each book just kept getting better and better and even more intriguing.
Another amazing read with a great cast of characters.We are introduced to Anastasia's mother if only in ghostly form. And we learn even a bigger secret about her father.
Anastasia and Finn at this point have gone there separate ways.They have to conquer there own destines by themselves .They both are experiencing heart break .Its kind of sad neither could be there to support the other for the final chosen quests.
Stasia powers are almost to her full capacity at this point she just is learning to adjust to them more like fine tuning them.Once she completes are test and becomes immortal she will be a force to be reckoned with !At this point I am really feeling Stasia pain so much pressure put on one so young.
Stasia parents left her with some really big shoes to fill. Not only does she need to succeed at her quest in the underworld she needs to gain access to it.She needs the approval of a bitch of a Goddess to gain entrance.Then she needs to survive the quest with some heirlooms her mother has passed on to her and a moonstone she found at a wreck when playing in the ocean with Finn.She will need to find a way to used these items in her quest.Once free she will need to battle against her mothers sister (clan sister) to prove she is the strongest of them to be the new and rightful leader of the Tyde's not only that again the approval of all there clan.
I was impressed with the sacrifices that Finn and Anastasia were willing to make for one another just to be together.It almost broke my heart.There whole courtship was a very intriguing one and one that never felt rushed.Every decision each made about the other had much thought behind it.It felt like that they were striving for a Happily ever after so took the romance slowly.
Poor Carmen she went with Stasia to the underworld and came home a prisoner in her own body something a someone got into her mind and was controlling her thoughts making her insane.They were killing her really.Ricker has been with her non stop lending his love and support and knowledge to free his love of this demon or what ever has possessed her.What a rock he was he impressed me greatly any other guy would have taken a hike.How there relationship has blossomed over time.So sweet..
So much has happen .So many secrets have come to light taking us down new avenues.The pain and loss are becoming bearable now.So much intrigue and new twists and turns coming to light we are on the seat of our pants and waiting for answers.We are hoping they will be able to heal Carmen and make her whole once again.
We see Finn and Stasia love become even more greater.Will they take that finally step to be together for all eternity ?But can you trust the others around you not to betray you ?Can Anastasia accomplish all her goals without losing her life?Have you gained all that you ever wanted a family, fantastic friend's a kind a loving boyfriend that was meant to be your soul mate just to lose it all ?
Wow ! So many mixed emotions did I experience in this last novel.I experience happiness, sadness, and plenty of tears that is for sure but, also love a laughter.We see compassion given and respect gained leaving you in awe because you never saw that one coming.
Another thrilling and truly amazing read for me!Another story by Kristen not to be missed.I am seeing a bright future for this young writer and can't wait to see what other amazing stories she will have for us in the future.
Oh wait I said I was sad to see this series come to an end that I would feel a great loss and will miss an amazing cast of character right ? Well Kristen has surprised me greatly she has another yet to this series .Hearken (Daughters of the Sea #4) coming soon yeah !!!!
