This book series was recommended to me by my dear GR friend Alyssa ! Click on her name to read her review.
After finishing Rogue Wave I needed to read Dark Tide! That ending was very cruel. I have no idea how people managed to wait until October 2015 to read this book. I am happy to say that I enjoyed this!
The book begins with a prologue in Astrid's point of view. Astrid is on her way home. It's been quite the journey and she's nearly ...more
Again, Jennifer Donnelly has failed to disappoint us.
This book has some good adventures that was a great read. It kept you the edge of your seat & kept you wanting more.
In this book, everything finally starts to come together & they make sense of things.
Another thing I really enjoyed about this book was that you were able to read about different characters adventures.
Unlike the first book, Dark Tide swaps characters POV. This makes it mo ...more
One of my big complaints in the last book was the lack of Astrid. I don't like how the books are oriented with the exploration of some characters, while others are left in the dark. I really liked getting to see Astrid's world here, but I wasn't as impacted by her lack ...more
If I am being honestly (and I always am), I wasn't really a fan of either Deep Blue or Rogue Wave. The fir ...more
I just want to unleash all those Razormouth Dragons all over Lucia. She would make an awesome snack for them. Anyone agree?
I enjoy reading these books. they're fun, kind of cheesy and just a good light reading. but for some reason I didn't find myself too invested in this book. it might've been the multiple POV's (I only care about Serafina and Astrid). I will say that the last few chapters were great, and I really like all this mythology background. I will continue with the series because I'm curious.
1. Life or death situations, but mostly hot guys.
2. So man dumb romances I actually noticed the lack of gay characters.
3. FINALLY IT'S OVER.
Things I liked:
I actually really like Jennifer Donnelly's writing, so much so that I might actually continue reading her books even if this series doesn't go too well. And the mermaid puns continue...(see things I didn't like)
I like the world. Well...that doesn't actually ta ...more
We have mermaids who are royal and we have mermaids who are average or poor citizens. Why is it that the royal mermaids manage to get the royal mermen? Why couldn't one of the everyday girls hooked a royal merman, made a true fairy tale out of it? It's very elitist.
Welp, Dark Tide was a fun, nice and easy read and I enjoyed myself. Besides that I doubt there's much more I can add. But I'll try my best.
The story starts with Sera and how she and her Blackfins cook up an insane plan to rob the treasury of Miromara, right under her uncle's (and Lucia's) nose. I must admit I really enjoyed their planning and execution of the plan, along with the bumps they came across along the way. Not to mention how th ...more
The third book to the Waterfire Saga is really mindblowing. It's good to see Astrid back again and also more of the other mermaids. I know Lucia was characterless but I did not expect her to stoop to the point of sacrificing her best friend's life! The one thing that I really love about this series is that, it shows us the value of friendship, lov ...more
I'm still amazed at how intrigued I am with this series. Once again, Jennifer Donnelly doesn't disappoint with the third installment. In this book, we finally learned a lot about Astrid, Ling, and Becca. The character development for those characters, especially Astrid, was phenomenal. I went from hating her in the first book to understanding and liking her in this one. Her story was sad, but I felt like Ling had it worse than any of the characters. There were non-sto ...more
It was nice to ...more
I absolutely ADORED venturing away from the Seraphina/Neela point of views and exploring other mer people's minds, and their adventures (especially Ling and Astrid's, in my opinion) were just so good and entertaining.
I don't remember if they had much of their POV's throughout the other two books cause it's been a while but, again, it was certainly refreshing.
The only downside for me was the love aspect. As much as I ship the ships tha ...more
This is basically the "meat" of the saga and I'm excited to see how Donnelly wraps this all up.
Well I think this book was really good, just a bit weaker than the other 2 books ;)
I am really curious how everything goes down and I hope therell be a few more obstacles for the mermaids ;)
Either way: cant wait to get my hands on the 4th one <3 ...more
