Coral & Bone

Coral & Bone 
by Tiffany Daune 
Publication date: July 7th 2014
Genres: Paranormal, Young Adult

Synopsis: Halen knows the sparks igniting under her fingertips are dangerous. She has spent her entire life trying to quell the tingly feelings that make her destroy things, but now that she is back in Rockaway Beach, where she watched her father drown, the flames have become impossible to tame.

Halen is trying to hold on, but when she is thrust into a mysterious new world, the underwater realm of Elosia, she unravels the secrets of her past and can’t help but ignite. As she explores Elosia, she realizes her life has been a lie. And when those who have deceived her come to her for help, Halen must choose—walk away or unleash the magick that could destroy them all.

My Thoughts:  Very interesting idea for a plot with sirens, shape shifters, and evil mermaids. I did enjoy reading this book, but there was maybe a little too much time spent explaining what is happening and why, rather than things actually happening. The main character Halen is only 15 years old and already having to deal with so much for the rest of the world to survive, while watching her family and friends sacrifice themselves for her safety. I really enjoyed reading about each characters story and how it relates with other people in the book, like a surprise sibling or discovering a family friends son. Things really start to pick up over half way through the book, once Halen can start working her magick, and get more interesting with each page. Overall I really did enjoy the story, it was just to slow for me in the beginning. 

I write stories about magick, love and dark creatures lurking in the shadows. When I'm not lost in Edit Land you can find me reading a book from my towering TBR pile or at the movie theater nibbling licorice. I don't have a lucky number, but my favorite time is 11:11. I completely believe that the fortunes found inside cookies will come true and that you must be careful when wishing on stars. I live on an island, so if you want to visit you'll need a boat, and if you want to survive the passage, be sure to bring candy for the mermaids.
