Girls *Heart* Books Blog Tours: Daughter of the Sea by Kristen Day: Review

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.
Chosen is the third book in the AMAZING Daughters of the Sea series by the FANTASTIC, wonderful, sweet, talented Kristen Day. I could go on and on about how much I ADORE this series and this author and these characters that she’s brought to life. It’s impossible to find words that adequately express my undying love and gratitude to this woman for this series.

Chosen starts off right where Awaken left off, thank goodness (the cliffhanger ending kept me up a few nights after I finished it). And the action picks back up right from the start of Chosen. This book was packed full of romance, action and humor. The twists and turns kept me on my toes and left me guessing about what could possibly happen next.

I can’t rave enough about the continued development of the characters in this series. With each installment Ms. Day brings even more depth to the characters we’ve grown to love. I love the relationship between Stasia and her roommates just as much as the relationship between Stasia and Finn. There really isn’t a single thing that I didn’t like about this book. If you haven’t started reading this series yet, you need to go out NOW, buy the books and get reading my friends!!

My Rating:

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.
