    Giraffe meBird bookDon t be lured by the pretty cover trust me.I m frankly baffled by the high ratings for this book Yara, the main character, is whiny and insufferably immature Treygan and Rownan are equally unlikeable, though Treygan has a little depth There is very little build up to when Yara becomes a mermaid which happens around page 6 , and from there, all she does is whine, moan, and worry about what her boyfriend would think of her being a freak i.e mermaid There is no story development, and whatever revelations there are, Yara meets each of them with whining The story does get incrementally interesting past the 100 page mark, but really, no book should tak...

    This book had no build up You are just dropped in the middle of it and left to flounder pun intended It starts out promising with the main character preparing for a storm to hit when she is approached by a guy,and from then on its downhill.I had the impression her transformation would happen later in the book but she just meets a strange guy and in the next paragraph she is a mermaid But she is still 100% snarky and not in a good way.The main character is annoying and childish,constantly uttering such memorable things as gross or ewww Her boyfriend has no qualms about ogling other girls redheads are totally his type but its totally ok,because hes loyal to Yara.But he doesnt want to be labeled as her boyfriend.Also hes got an awesome white coatand a goatee But the main character assures the reader that Rownan is attractive in a million ways.The goatee and the fur coat just scream attractive cool ness rolls eyes Another character smokes c weed Get it Sound it out A...

    2.5 starsI ve been trying not to be a cover snob lately Thank you, thank you No applause necessary.So even though at first glance the orgasmic rainbow mermaid on the cover looked a tad cheesy, I didn t let that discourage me I m feel like I ve grown as a person.In retrospect, however, I should have seen it coming Now, this wasn t an awful book, but it does go kind of overboard no pun intended with the fantastical elements of the story.You know those books where the author keeps heaping and magical powers onto the main character Like it wasn t enough that they were a werewolf vampire hybrid, so they also find out that their great grandmother was a demon witch, and now they have those powers too And then they do a favor a Greek god, and that ends up garnering them with a few extra powers on top of everything else Yeah That s this book, but with mystical sea creatures.I waffled between 2.5 and 3 stars for a while, because it wasn t that bad, but it wasn t something I couldn t wai...

    Tangled Tides was one of my most anticipated books this year, and I am so glad it did not disappoint From the opening chapter, the book jumps right into the action Yara becomes a mermaid early on, and a whole new magical world beneath the sea is unveiled.The mythology of this book was rich, refreshing, and a much needed break from all the vampires, werewolves, and fallen angels None of those here, but instead there are mermaids, selkies, sirens, and gorgons even a water sprite or two , and learning the back stories and rules for each species, as well as watching how the different species interact with each other, was one of the things most interesting to me about the book And another thing it s difficult to choose which creature I liked the most I loved them all The characters were also unique and fully fleshed out You ll cheer for Yara, our heroine, the girls will swoon over Treygan, and Pango will make you laugh I loved each one of these uniquely amazing characters.And the surprises Filled with secrets, these characters are part of a feud that has lasted for eighteen years, and the complex web of lies and secrets that each character is a part of unravels as the novel progresses You ll probably gasp a time or two I know I did.So definitely read Tangled Tides, especially if you re a fan of warring supernatural creatures, but you re tired of the vampires and the werewolves But also, give it a try if you re looking for a great story filled with romance, adventure, a...

    Please note I first read and reviewed this book in November of 2011 from a copy provided by Rhemalda Publishing in exchange for an honest review Updating this review to add that disclaimer and formatting.My Synopsis The day before Yara s 18th birthday, her guardian who she calls Uncle Lloyd has gone to the mainland from the Florida Keys to have kidney dialysis, and a hurricane is blowing up While she struggles to cover the windows, a stranger appears, offering to help her He says his name is Treygan and somehow he makes her feel safe and warm He offers to take her someplace safe, if that is her wish, and she makes the wish The next thing she knows, she s waking up a mermaid What has happened to her How can she go back to the way things were And most importantly why has all this happened right now My Thoughts Releasing 11 25 11 from Rhemalda, Tangled Tides is a wonderfully fun YA paranormal fantasy with strong elements of romance While it makes use of the typical triad and oodles of problems getting along between the romantic leads, it all fits in the story and makes sense unlike many ...

    I had to drop this My mom read it, but she reads pretty much anything and didn t suggest than an It was okay when asked how the book was.I, however, did not inherit her tolerance for literature and absolutely loathed this book I like mermaids And faeries And all those cute paranormal species that don t get enough attention in favor of shape shifters and vampires But I did not like Tangled Tides Why 1 The main character She s annoying and whiny.2 The main character s boyfriend Not at all attractive from the description, which I could have ignored but he smokes Gross.3 This book introduces drug culture of seagarettes and c weed which is smoked through a joint a joint to mermen maids and selkies.4 Annoying characters The seductive, whiny siren The b...

    I will never say that I am an expert on all things mythical Yes, I have been acquainted with many a being centaurs, fairies, dragons, unicorns, griffins, etc but I cannot recall a time I ever read a story about a mermaid Because of this, I was eager to pick up Hooper s Tangled Tides it would be something new and exciting plus I m always a sucker for a pretty cover I mean seriously, look at that cover The novel opens with the protagonist, Yara, yanking wooden panels covered in carvings of mythical sea dwelling beings from her Uncle s walls to place over windows to prepare for a hurricane As she does this, a mysterious stranger appears, hypnotizes her, and lures her into the sea, where she wakes as a mermaid some indiscernible time later Angry, afraid, and confused Yara finds herself in the middle of a make believe world made real a world her boyfriend, Rownan, warned her to steer clear of She soon learns that her kidnapper, a powerful merman named Treygan, and his people were not the only beings that wanted her and his actions could very well have saved her life and the lives of all of the merpeople The characters are people I would never want to meet in real life Yara, Rownan, and Treygan all had egos that were ...
