The Moon and The Tide by Derrolyn Anderson Review

The Moon and the Tide
Marina’s Tales Book Two
By Derrolyn Anderson

The mermaids are scared someone is hunting them and one of their sisters has gone missing. Meanwhile on land Marina is coming to learn more and more of the people she is surrounded by and secrets that have been kept from her, her entire life come to light. Soon though a terrible accident causes her own secret to be revealed and she is caught in a dangerous world that will take every ounce of her strength to survive.

If it is possible this book was better than the first, we learn more about Aunt Evie and it isn’t quite what you would expect. Also Marina soon finds out love is a lot harder than it seems in fairytales and we go through a growth process as she and Ethan learn to cope with the progression of their relationship and Marina uncovers more of her own past. This is a great young adult book and Derrolyn Anderson has once again done a remarkable job intertwining several stories into one beautiful and thrilling novel. This book is a brilliant blend of suspense, romance, and fantasy. As this story progresses the more it draws you in leaving you eager to find out what happens next.

  1. I wonder why there aren't more books about mermaids.... :|

    New follower from goodreads. :)
    Read that also

  2. I know I love mermaids :D I found another series I am hoping to review soon book one is Drowning Mermaids. Thanks for the follow! :D

  3. In the first three books the big issue was Marinas strong desires towards the ocean but in this fourth and final book the big issue was both her and Ethans insecurities towards each-other.
    There is also a lot of jealousy going on which of course disturbs their relationship.
    There were a lot of twists and turns that were completely unexpected and this is what made the book so good.
