Right after reading Lullaby,I immediately picked up this book and WOW Nelly! Did it blow me away?Remember in my Lullaby review I said things looked like they will get worse or put to the test? Yup. Ms. Hocking took this up several levels leaving the reader absolutely astonished. I think when I was done with the book I just could not believe that in the short time that I read it, it all changed so quickly. Some characters were killed off, others were added, deadly betrayals of deals were made and not to mention all the going behind other peoples backs. It was all so good, I could not stop myself from reading no matter what. Take it from me when I say this book is filled with an amazing plot that will leave you breathless.Relationships. GAH! All the relationships went to crap on a silver platter. I just kept shaking my head at all the choices these characters were making and AHHHHH! In just want to scream. Not that it isn’t any good because my goodness it is! It’s just one of those books that you get so caught up on all the emotions and choices of the characters that it feels real to you. As I read this book, all I could think of is, How will it all end? I mean, if it is falling this way, I can only imagine that the last book will be a doozy!This is an awesome book! With amazing clarity in emotions, world building and characters, I’m excited to see where it will go next. This book gave me so much anxiety, I had to chill for a bit. Sending a wave of vengeance and lots of plot twist, Tidal is superb.
