Review: Surface by Tiffany Daune

So I am a terrible person. I have read this one weeks ago but just have not penned the review. Thus I sat myself down today and decided it is REVIEW time.

SurfaceCoverSynopsis (Cover links to Goodreads page)

Bound to the water bound to land, a Siren’s soul will never be safe on either side of the ocean’s surface. Hidden beneath the rolling waves lies the secret to Theia’s past and as she unveils each haunting truth, she realizes the last seventeen years of her life have been a lie. Now, drawn into a mysterious new world and with nowhere to turn, Theia must place her trust in Luc, a beautiful boy who stops her heart with each dazzling smile, but even his unearthly charm can’t hide the truth—he has secrets— dark secrets binding him to his world—an underwater world where Theia will never belong—a world determined to destroy her soul

Author: Tiffany Daune

Publication date: Feb 2013

Where did I get the book: From the Author for the purposes of an honest but fair review

My Rating: 4 Book worms

My Review:

Theia thinks she is just a normal girl. Very unhappy with her mom for uprooting her from her friends and shoving her into preppy hell just because of a house. Imagine her shock when she finds out, that no – sorry Theia your a Siren. Not so normal after all. Shock set aside, she does meet Luc. A really sexy guy who she cannot help but fall for. Even though she does have some issues trusting him.

 

It is pretty much safe to say I have never read anything like this. All my previous paranormal/fantasy type books were mostly centered around fairies, vampires or werewolves. So I really enjoyed this. Theia had some issues, but mostly she was a really great heroin. Strong and deliriously in love with Luc. I really like how easily they connected.

The intro to the book was amazingly thought grabbing. I picked it up and was immediately like – FOR REAL? It was great to have the action straight from the start. A little terrifying having Theia floating around in the ocean within the first 5 minutes – but still really good reading material.

Some of the characters I couldn’t really connect well with, And I was a little sad that the only one I could actually connect with turned out to be a conniving little cow (Celeste).

It has a great ending, not too open ended that it made me feel bereft and just enough unanswered questions to make a girl feel like a second book could be well worth the look.

Thanks for stopping by
