Synopsis from

The essence of who we are lies not in what we have, but in what we are willing to give up. Because in the end, Time and Tide wait for no one.

After sacrificing all that she had, the evil princess of the Underworld is still successful in her bid to tear Finn from Stasia’s life. In the midst of her search to reclaim him, Stasia is summoned to the island nation of Cyprus to take part in an age-old ritual; unveiling the missing pieces of her ancestry and re-igniting an ancient war. As she struggles to both save Finn’s soul and free Carmen’s mind, Stasia’s bravery and determination will be pushed to its breaking point. A dark storm is forming on the horizon, and the forces who are vying to destroy her may be much closer than she thinks. Destiny weaves a sticky web of evil, betrayal, and revenge that can only be undone by the purity of love and the soul’s unyielding will to survive. In the last installment of the Daughters of the Sea trilogy, the past will collide with the present as Stasia’s future hangs in the balance. The prophecy that paved the way for her new life may indeed be the very thing that strips her of the ones she loves the most.

My Thoughts:

What a bittersweet farewell to  a wonderful series!!!  As always, Kristen Day gives us an action packed, swoon worthy, and captivating novel.  I'll miss every character in this series even the most evil ones.  I swear, there were many times when I wanted to physically strangle Nadia.  But that's how you know how good a book is...when you really really react to the characters.  The love story was breathtaking (Guys should take notes from Finn).  The vivid imagery of each setting was so amazing that I felt like I was there in the story.  This book evoked a gamut of emotions from me (laughter, sadness, anger...and so many more).  I'm so sad that this series has reached its end but also ecstatic that Anastasia finally gets her well deserved ending.  Thank you again Kristen for this amazing series.
