WOW: Tangled Tides by Karen Hooper

Wednesday, November 16, 2011

Yara Jones doesn’t believe in sea monsters—until she becomes one.

When a hurricane hits her island home and she wakes up with fins, Yara finds herself tangled up in an underwater world of mysterious merfolk and secretive selkies. Both sides believe Yara can save them by fulfilling a broken promise and opening the sealed gateway to their realm, but they are battling over how it should be done. The selkies want to take her life. The merfolk want something far more precious.

Treygan, the stormy-eyed merman who turned Yara mer, will stop at nothing and sacrifice everything to protect his people—until he falls for Yara. The tides turn as Yara fights to save herself, hundreds of sea creatures, and the merman who has her heart. She could lose her soul in the process—or she might open the gateway to a love that’s deeper than the oceans.

Young Adult fans of Mermaids, Selkies, Sirens and Gorgons will love this tale of the sacrifice one makes for genuine love. Love that could be lost at any moment to the ever-changing tides.

  1. I was perusing Rhemelda's site the other day and came across a blog post written by a person (I don't remember who) that showed the original photo and then the cover and went into all the detail on how it was created. So yeah...I'm with's a great piece of art. I just liked the "behind-the-scenes" look.

    Definitely check it out - it is an AWESOME book! I read it last weekend, and my review is posted on Goodreads (among other places). My apologies if this is a duplicate post - my computer is being weird.

    Thanks so much for the love, Amber! :)

    I would have stopped by yesterday, but my stupid Google alerts don't seem to be working because I don't get notified about anything!


  1. Katy: Yay! I can't wait to crack it open.

    Karen: Oh, I SO turned off google alerts. I saw way too many things I wish I never had in regards to my books. Also, google alerts only picks up about 70% of what's out there. And you're welcome!
