Daughters of the Sea Blog Tour-Review of Forsaken







 

Blurb
 Once you’ve been touched by darkness, it never leaves you…

Abandoned by her parents as an infant; seventeen year old Hannah spent her childhood wading through countless foster families until being adopted by the Whitmans three years ago.

Unfortunately, Atlanta’s high society wasn’t quite ready for Hannah…or the strange events that plague her.

Chilling visions of murder, unexplained hallucinations, and  dark, mysterious guy who haunts her nightmares all culminate to set in motion a journey of self-discovery that will challenge everything she’s ever believed; not to mention her sanity.

Sent to live at The House of Lorelei on Bald Head Island, NC for ‘kids like her’, Hannah quickly realizes things are not what they seem. Her fellow ‘disturbed’ teens are actually the descendants of mythical Sea Gods and Goddesses. And so is she.

But when Finn, the ghost from her dreams, appears in the flesh; her nightmares become reality and her dark visions begin coming true. Inexplicably drawn to him, she can’t deny the dangerous hold he has on her heart. The deadly secrets he harbors will ultimately test her courage and push the boundaries of her love.

She must decide if she is ready to embrace the ancient legend she is prophesied to be a part of. The fate of all the descendants will forever depend upon it.

 



Review of Forsaken
 
5 Stars all the way!! I LOVED this book. I mean, really, loved this book.  I read this book in 3 hour and cannot wait to continue with the rest of the series.
It starts out with Hannah, an adopoted daughter of  a "high class" Atlanta family. She doesn't really fit in and it doesn't help that she has blackouts, hallucinates, and sees people that aren't really there. On another trip to a shrink, she is sent to be around kids  that are like her (could that even be possible?) and off she is shipped to Bald Head Island, NC and then things really start to change.

Hannah learns that she is a Daughter of The Sea, a goddess, and even figures out that she has powers. She has three awesome roommates  Phoebe, Willow, and Carmen and I enjoyed them in the story as well. Then of course, there is Finn, a boy that has been in her dreams, and wham, there he is in real life.  (Swoon alert ladies, he's hot stuff).

I am always one that doesn't want to  give away too much in a book for fear of ruining it for someone. But this book and series is a must read.  I enjoyed learning about Hannah's past, her future, and her crush on that hottie Finn.  Hannah certainly cares for anyone that she has been able to form a relationship with and I look forward to reading more about them in the rest of the series.

If you are looking for a great read with great characters, you should really start by checking out Forsaken and if you love it just as much as I do, you will continue on.  Do yourself a favor and click that link below and start reading this fantastic book!

About The Author
 
 
About The Author: 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 trilogy, which includes FORSAKEN, AWAKEN, and CHOSEN (Winter 2012). 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 – it’s 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. I graduated from Appalachian State University and dream of becoming a full time novelist.
