Girls Heart Books Blog Tours: Daughters of the Sea Trilogy by Kristen Day: Review & Giveaway

Daughters of the Sea Series #3
By: Kristen Day
Published: January 29th, 2013

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 and 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 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 last thing that strips her of the ones she loves the most.

Before I begin my review I want to say Ms. Day is equal parts EVIL and ANGELIC.

You may wonder why I say this. Well here. She is evil because, well, read this.. I really can't say why she is evil besides the fact she made me cry enough to actually refill the ocean after global warming, BUT she is also angelic because she let the voices in her head convince her to continue this series. And for that I will love her forever.

Although, I will defend her slightly because IF this had been the end (*queue scream sobs at the THOUGHT of an end*), it would've been a beautiful end to a beautiful trilogy.. I'm really not sure how she is going to move along, to be honest.. But I am dying of curiosity, and I will DEFINITELY be moving along with the next book! And all of Kristen's books here on out.

Day creates magic in her writing. The love she has for this profession flows through the page and into the reader, which makes it an honor to even read these books. I am so looking forward to the paperbacks coming out, just so I can give them a face-front-spot on my shelves. I ADORE this series, and this book was absolutely stunning, just like the last two. :) I cannot tell you enough, and I cannot tell you all much...or I'll ruin the whole series... Damn... hehe

My Rating:

And because we love you all, here's a WONDERFUL giveaway! <3

I am a southern belle at heart with a crazy streak that desperately tries to escape at every opportunity. I love all things nostalgic, rustic, and quirky. I've been told I see the world through rose-colored glasses, but I prefer to think of them as kaleidoscope glasses - swirling and morphing reality into something I can digest (who hasn't pretended those pasty lima beans were really kiwi strawberry jelly beans?).

I am the author of the DAUGHTERS OF THE SEA series, which includes FORSAKEN, AWAKEN, and CHOSEN. I love all books, but really enjoy writing young adult, paranormal romances. I've loved to write for as long as I can remember. My first published work was my poem RED in second grade (you guessed it - it was a poem about the color red - life altering, I know) that won me 5 gold stars and a spot in my elementary school's poetry book. That's when my addiction to the written word officially began. I was the only kid in fifth grade that actually enjoyed diagramming sentences. Go ahead and laugh - its okay.

When I'm not writing I'm making jewelry, painting, drinking sweet tea, watching the discovery channel, or going on random adventures in the mountains of North Carolina with my amazing husband.

  1. Evil and angelic - you've definitely got me figured out!! I like to think of myself as 'Good with a twist'... I loved your review, but I'm going to ship you some tissues to make up for all the tears! You must be dehydrated! I'll send some gatorade too. hehe! xoxo


We love to hear from you!
