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.
I received a review copy of Coral and Bone from Jester Ink Press via NetGalley in exchange with an honest review .
This was my first mermaid book ever, and to be honest, I was really skeptic. However, Tiffany was able to build an entire new world that left me breathless! The way Elosia was described was mind blowing. My favorite description was how houses were build in the form of bubbles, so whenever a water related chaos occurred, the bubbles will float and thus preventing destruction. Sounds amazing, right ?
The story itself is very intriguing . We Follow Halen, as she uncovers her true identity and faces her fate.
I absolutely loved all of the characters. Each one of them added a new element to the story,including the villain.
I know that there is going to be another book , and I just can't wait to read it. The ending left me screaming for more! I also wish that there would be a bit more romance in book 2.
I give Coral and Bone 5/5 stars and an A according to my own rating scale !
