Elegy – book review

Elegy-Amanda-Hocking

Elegy is the forth book in the stunning Wake series, written by Amanda Hocking.

Gemma holds the key to breaking the sirens curse just when the stakes couldn’t be any higher. Penn is determined to get rid of Gemma once and for all and to rule the world for all eternity. Gemma feels like her normal life is just within reach, but she can’t get there. Not with Penn around. Gemma is close to having her normal relationship back with Alex, but she feels like nothing will ever be the same again.

Penn is more determined than ever to have Daniel for herself and to destroy Harper and Gemma along the way. Penn can’t force Daniel to love her, but she always ends up getting what she wants…

What will Gemma have to sacrifice to save the ones she loves? Can she ever break the siren curse? Who must die so that Gemma can be saved? The final battle is about to begin, and not everyone will make it out alive…

With Elegy picking up right where Tidal finished, I was immediately immersed in the world of sirens, mythology and romance yet again. Gemma is more determined than ever to break the sirens curse. I loved seeing her try everything to break the curse and she never gave up. Her perseverance was unbelievable, and that’s what I loved about her. Again in this book, Harper was such an amazing, supportive sister to Gemma who was never willing to give up hope. The story moved along at such a fast pace that ensured there was never a dull moment. I really admired the way that Daniel was willing to do anything for Harper and Gemma. The obsession that Penn had of him was really quite scary. I can’t believe how willing Daniel was to do anything that Penn wanted, just to keep the ones he loved safe. So many of my questions were answered in the end, and I was happy with the answers I was given. Although I’m sad to see Gemma’s story finally end, I’m happy with the way things worked out. In my opinion, this book was the best in the series. I was constantly worrying about what would happen to Gemma and I couldn’t stop guessing until the very end. Everything about this book was alluring and enticing. I absolutely loved reading Elegy by Amanda Hocking and I’d give it a score of 9 out of 10. I wonder what Amanda Hocking will come up with next…

Tidal – book review

Tidal

Tidal is the third book in the alluring Wake (Watersong) series by Amanda Hocking.

After an emotional end to Lullaby, Gemma is now back in her hometown for a little while. But not for long… Penn and Lexi are determined to kill Gemma and replace her with another Siren. Gemma’s life in is grave danger and her only hope of survival is to break to curse before its too late…

With the help of Harper and Daniel, Gemma digs deep into the Siren’s past to unravel the secrets of their curse. This is the only chance of saving everything that matters to her: her family, her life, and her one true love – Alex.

Will Gemma be able to break the curse? Will she ever be able to be with Alex again? Will Gemma ever be able to escape from the Sirens and live a normal life?

I loved Tidal. After finishing Lullaby, I almost died waiting for Tidal to come out! I was so eager to read it, and yet now I have to wait for the next book in the series to come out! I liked how the characters have changed since Lullaby, especially Gemma and Alex. Firstly, Alex has changed so much since Lullaby. He and Gemma used to be practically inseparable. After Gemma used her Siren powers on him to protect him from the evil, Alex has become angry and confused about his feelings towards Gemma. He knows he hates her, but he can’t remember why, and I found that just so shattering. Gemma has become more determined than ever in this book and I loved seeing her fight for her life whilst trying to reconnect with the love of her life. I also enjoyed seeing Penn infatuated with Daniel… it was quite entertaining! Like the other books in this series, I could not stop reading it. It was so gripping, but I guess now I’m regretting reading it within a day, because now I have to wait for the next book in the series to come out! I have to know how this series ends! I’d give Tidal by Amanda Hocking a score of 9 out of 10. Wow.
