I'm a little sorry to go to 3 stars for this book. I liked the opening 2 books of the trilogy better than this one. It's not that I dislike it, I just don't like it as well.

Now, why? Well, let me say that there are undoubtedly people who will not dislike what drove me a little crazy. The entire series has had a romance story running along with the "supernatural" storyline. I never really thought it overwhelmed the story. HOWEVER in this volume it did come close. For me...Now note, that's "for me
I was waiting, almost panting for this book! The East Salem trilogy holds you in suspense and really had me wondering who would survive the battle between good and evil. Well researched, and fast paced with delicious characters, the Lis Wiehl/Pete Nelson author combination is lightning in a bottle. The spiritual overtones are well done and the visual description of 'the angel/demon' war brought me to tears. Read these books in order - you don't want to miss a detail! These should be a film serie ...more

fast-paced conclusion to the East Salem trilogy: a story of the ongoing battle between good and evil (literally).

I really liked this trilogy and think you really need to treat it as one work. It begins with a high school party seemingly gone bad, ending in a ritualistic killing. The attention starts to shift to the prestigious local, long-established private school of St. Adrian in which we find out that something is seriously wrong. The story shifts to the school and the growing certainty that
Just ok. Not as suspenseful as the first two books, and it was kind of confusing to keep track of some people the last half of the book. This book didn't flow well, and felt forced in parts. Sorry.

The three books in this series have been my favorite books that Lis Wiehl has written. They have also been the most Christian, so that may play into why I like them the best. Of the three books in this series, this one was the best and most exciting, in my opinion.

The authors brought back the same characters from the other two books, and in this book the stakes are higher and the danger more prevalent.

I took me a few pages to remember what had happened in the last book, but I quickly got caugh

So sad to come to the end of a trilogy. Great book! Great series!

Lis Wiehl with Pete Nelson have written another top-seller! East Salem Trilogy began with Waking Hours #1 and continued with Darkness Rising #2. The story picks up on December 20th; George Gardener and Julian Villanegre are escorting Reese, a young man home from St. Adrian's, to England at Tommy Gunderson's wishes.

The evil that has taken over St. Adrian's Academy is seeping out into the world. Dani and Tommy continue to battle the
Christian Fiction Addiction
Gripping suspense, supernatural battles between angels and demons, and intriguing characters make "Fatal Tide" a strong addition to the "East Salem" series. Tommy and Dani return to continue their fight against the evil that has infiltrated the town of East Salem. Their relationship continues to grow in leaps and bounds, and the thread of romance in this novel is sure to please many readers. As with the prior novels in the series, I greatly enjoyed the witty dialogue that sparks between Tommy an ...more

Finally, the last installment of the East Salem series is here. I was so excited when I know it's coming out and couldn't resist myself to get the book immediately. And similar to the 1st and 2nd installment of the series, Lis Wiehl together with Pete Nelson did not fail to surprise me with more suspense and excitement in th
While the series has been more plot driven than character, the author has given us a colorful cast of heroes. Danni has spunk and is fearless and Tommy is unbending in his faith. Their romance continues to deepen and their faith in each other never waivers. Cassandra, Tommy’s ex really shows development in this third novel, and I was impressed with her involvement. A student from St. Adrian’s becomes an ally. I liked Reese, even if he wasn’t fully fleshed out. They draw others into their inner c ...more

This book is another fast paced thriller full of suspense that will keep you wondering what will happen next. This book shows us how Satan works in our world today and how he wants to destroy everything good that God has made. Like Dani and Tommy we are constantly faced with evil in our daily lives but we must rely on God to see us through.

Fatal Tide is an outstanding ending to the trilogy. I liked it better than any of the other books. Tommy and Dani have resolved their differences and their l

Title: Fatal Tide (East Salem #3)
Author: Lis Wiehl with Pete Nelson
Pages: 315
Year: 2013
Publisher: Thomas Nelson
Fatal Tide continues the action and wild ride of Dani Harris and Tommy Gunderson began in the first two books, Waking Hours and Darkness Rising. I recommend the other two books be read first so the reader will know what is going on. All the main characters return in this installment with Tommy’s bad puns, his aunt Ruth’s many guns and librarian smarts and Dani’s no nonsense logic.

The Thrilling Conclusion to the East Salem Trilogy

Sinister shapes gather around Tommy Gunderson's house where he, Dani, Quinn and Cassandra Morton are holed up. With them is Tommy's Aunt Ruth, and Reese, a boy who escaped from St. Adrian's Academy. Because of the danger, Dani and Tommy decide to send Reese away with Dr. Julian Villanegre and Frank Gardner. Before the three reach the airport, the monsters cause a car crash. Julian and Frank are killed, but Reese manages to escape. He returns to T
The start of this series was great and I could wait for the second book but the final book seems to have lost its way. What seemed at first to be a supernatural mystery with vaguely religious overtones turned into a full-blown religious quest with a vague reference to otherworld aspects. Kind of a letdown.
I'm a bit on the fence with this novel. I liked the previous two and had expectations for this one but I felt thrown from one side to the next. There were just too many side plots turning it into a confusing cacophony, really.

Also I felt like the story was lagging until near the end where it just became a big rush of action. Everything seemed to end up with a neat little red bow in the most bizarre way possible, the good guys won and they rode into the sunset... The end.

It's not a bad novel, far
I found this last book in the trilogy a letdown. I found myself skipping over paragraphs that have been repeated over and over again in each book that don't really need to be repeated.

Liz writes an interesting book. Some of the facts are more current than you would guess. Can we trust any drugs?
I liked the first book the most, then the second book was pretty good. This book seemed to be even slower moving and harder for me to stay interested. Still a decent book, just my least favorite of the three...
Interesting installment in this series. I am not that much into the "science fiction" thing but it was pretty good. Tommy is a great guy who has a super house installed with all kinds of security gadgets that come in handy when the "demons" start appearing. Many enemies out there trying to take the earth especially Satan. Dani is Tommy's girlfriend and they along with a bunch of other good people are trying to save the world. All kinds of incidents will get them to the point of figuring out how ...more
Brian Ritter
An amazing end to the trilogy that does not disappoint. With a shocking twist at the beginning the entire gang is back and ready to take on evil once and for all...with a little help from above. The only bad thing I can say about this entire series is that this is the final book...far too often it gets harder and harder to read a series the deeper you get into it because it seems like story lines simply aren't fresh but not here...The non-use of foul language and the positive faith based message ...more
Mallory Heart Reviews
Truly unstoppable action both Supernatural and human, as the forces of good and evil active in East Salem NY reach their apex and a demonic plan stands ready to tip the balance in favour of evil. Can't stop conclusion to the East Salem trilogy.

A powerful finale to the East Salem trilogy. This book was strong on faith and the never ending battle between good and evil. I liked that the characters had some flaws, and occasionally struggled with their beliefs - isn't this true of most of us? For this reason, they seemed very real to me, which is why this whole trilogy was very enjoyable.

I would like to thank Thomas Nelson, via Netgalley, for allowing me to read this in exchange for an unbiased review.

Publish date: September 17, 2013.

I liked this trilogy. Strong Christian theme.
I thought that this was a good conclusion to the series. Going to miss reading about Tommy and all of his gadgets. He even comes up with a drone in this one. Will miss the angels Charlie and Ben too.

The only problem that I have had with the series is the technical/medical terms that the author uses off and on through out the books. Had the same problem with another series that she has out. It probably wouldn't bother most people but it's just one of those little irritants to me.

I loved this book and the series. It was basically about people who want to usher in the end of the world. It is also about how God protects us and that there is an unseen world out there that affects what we do. It also shows how God is in control and the end of this age is at hand.
This was the third book in the East Salem Trilogy. It was very good, and I loved the ending. I also like that the book has a faith base, when dealing with angels, and demons. It was very shrewd the way the author ran this story around a young man's school for wealthy boys....
Just glad this series is over!!! The only positive thing I can say is I liked her character, Tommy.
