TIDAL is the third book in author Amanda Hocking’s Watersong series. The fourth and final full-length book, ELEGY, is slated for release on August 6, 2013.


There are so many super awesome books releasing the week of June 4th. Quite a few of them are ones I’ve been just dying to read for ages. Others are part of a series that I’m just desperate to start… or get caught up on. But when I saw that TIDAL by Amanda Hocking was releasing, there was no doubt in my mind which book I wanted to put in the spotlight this week.

I love the imaginative way Amanda Hocking tells a story. I love the way her series don’t tend to follow convention. And I love that she always manages to find a different way of approaching the paranormal elements in her stories, whether they’re about vampires, zombies, trolls or sirens.

While I have a bit of catching up to do in the Watersong series – I’ve only read the first book in the series – falling behind was very much intentional. I wanted to be able to continue the story and not have to wait for each subsequent book’s release.

But after having read the description for TIDAL – yes I caved – I don’t think I’ll be able to wait for ELEGY’s release in August before I dive in. I want to uncover Gemma’s enemies dark secrets. And I want to see whether she’ll be able to break the curse.

The description mentions that she’s in “grave danger,” which makes me very nervous. And the fact that this cover is much darker and edgier than the previous covers gives me every reason to believe this third book in the series will take a very dark turn.

So while I am excited for the release of each of the books I’ve listed below, there is no book I’m more anxious for the release of the week of June 4th than TIDAL, this third of four installments in the author’s Watersong series.
