BLOG TOUR - Coral & Bone by Tiffany Daune

Coral & Bone by Tiffany Daune
Publication date: July 7th 2014
Genres: Paranormal, Young Adult

 Halen knows the sparks igniting under her fingertips are dangerous. She has spent her entire life trying to quell the tingly feelings that make her destroy things, but now that she is back in Rockaway Beach, where she watched her father drown, the flames have become impossible to tame.

Halen is trying to hold on, but when she is thrust into a mysterious new world, the underwater realm of Elosia, she unravels the secrets of her past and can’t help but ignite. As she explores Elosia, she realizes her life has been a lie. And when those who have deceived her come to her for help, Halen must choose—walk away or unleash the magick that could destroy them all.

 First off i absolutely loved the name Halen. So unique and unforgettable too.

I like how the story begins giving us a look into Halen's life and her world but it doesn't take long for the adventures to begin. I just love a great YA Fantasy! Coral & Bone definitely delivers! I always love a good mystery and this read was full of just that!

It's my second Siren/Mermaid tale and it was just really good. Very graphic detailing and a cast of characters that will keep you attentive to the storyline. Just Dax alone is enough to keep you glued to the pages. He's all brooding, cryptic hottness!

I like the pace and progression of the story and the fact that you just know what's going on. Sometimes a story is hard to follow but this one was super easy. I like the POV alot better than some of the books I have been reading that seemed more narrated than lived. I told my daughter that it's definitely a YA Fantasy must read! I like that we are dealing with Halen not knowing anything about the world she gets thrust into full throttle. Some may say it's predictable but I assure not in this book it's not. 

The entire cast of characters is great and I always love an introduction to strange and new creatures and we certainly get some of that in this read as well. I was pretty freaked out when Tage lost Halen it was all a quick transition in the storyline and I was glad I wasn't going to have to wait and wait for The real story to come to the surface. As an MC Halen is pretty great. I like that it doesn't take her forever to figure out that all of it is indeed not a dream. I like the magical element to the story too. 

Really love this book and I am looking forward to reading more from Tiffany Duane and definitely this series. 
If you have been looking for a new YA Fantasy to sink your teeth into this is the book for you!!

I write stories about magick, love and dark creatures lurking in the shadows. When I'm not lost in Edit Land you can find me reading a book from my towering TBR pile or at the movie theater nibbling licorice. I don't have a lucky number, but my favorite time is 11:11. I completely believe that the fortunes found inside cookies will come true and that you must be careful when wishing on stars. I live on an island, so if you want to visit you'll need a boat, and if you want to survive the passage, be sure to bring candy for the mermaids.
