My Review: 
The Moon And The Tide was even better than the first book if that is possible. I really liked the first book but the author brought so much more to this one. We get to enjoy the returning characters along with some new interesting ones.

While on vacation with her dad, another one of Marina's previous visions happens. A terrible accident that will cause her to revel herself as a mermaid. This in turn sets off a series of events that will change everything that Marina has ever known. Her relationship with Ethan has some bumps in the road. This causes her to want to be in the water any chance she can get. Marina and Lorelei find themselves in some dangerous situations.

Some major secrets are revealed and there is a lot more action, adventure and emotions. Marina finds out that she has some powers of persuasion that always doesn't turn out like she hopes. I really liked how the characters really developed more into their own. Cruz just cracks me up with all his designer attitude. Megan has become much more sure of herself which plays out in her music. Shayla, I was surprised by how much she has changed. She went from bullying Marina to becoming such a good friend. I can't leave out Evie, she is like that aunt that I would love to have along with her funny bodyguard Boris.

There are so many ups and downs with Marina's emotions and relationships. There is a lot going on in this sequel but I don't want to really give away any spoilers. This is a must read though. I can't wait to read the next one and see what exciting adventures are in store for Marina, her family and friends. This e-book was provided to me by the author for review. This did not affect my review in any way.
