The Moon And The Tide is book # 2 in the Marina's Tales series.
Just when things seem to be all figured out, Marina discovers that there's a lot more going on behind the scenes than she ever imagined. When a terrible accident exposes her secret, she discovers that her whole life has been one big lie, and has to cope with more than one kind of betrayal.
A dangerous enemy arrives on the scene, putting her bravery to the test and forcing her to use all of her new-found talents to protect her family. Will good win out over evil? Can love triumph over jealousy (From Goodreads)?
This is book two in Marina’s Tale and I did not finish this one. For some reason I just could not get into it. I really did try, I was 112 pages into this book before I quite.
This is not necessarily bad story, it was not for me. Even though I have read book one in the series and thought that it was an alright read, book two did not work for me so much. I think it would have been better if book one was just a standalone novel. I had hard time getting into the story line, for the 112 pages that I have read nothing happens, and I mean nothing. There are few flashes and talk with the fortune teller that hint briefly as to what is to come, but that is it.
Another problem I had with this book was the awkwardness of the dialog between characters, I said that about book one as well. it very awkward and jumpy and all over the place. Also it end in most inconvenient times during the conversation. There was lack of character development and growth, Marina is the same as she was in book one. She is very naïve too, for example while she is having a conversation with Lorelei, she asks her why she can not let the suffers see her. I mean that is a kind of stupid question. If no one would care about seeing a mermaid, why than does not Marina tell everyone about her having a ability to become a mermaid.
Overall this was not a good read for me. I am sorry to say it because I love books about mermaids. It lacks fluidity to the dialog and to the whole story overall. It’s very disjointed which causes me as a reader to dislike the story. I give this book 1/5 STARS.
