REVIEW: Tidal Wave, book two in the Tide series by K. Dicke
Publication date: September 30, 2015

Dark days. Long nights. Dead eyes.

Ever since Kris’s battle with Devon, a victory that should have brought her and the Chosen peace, she’s been on the run.

Kris has left the beach, and all the painful memories associated with it behind.  She’s traded in cut-offs for leather and given up her surfboard for lead guitar in a speed metal band.  She’s hell-bent on revenge against those who wronged her and left her powerless.  But she’s running out of time, her body and mind deteriorating with each passing day.

She may be the only one who can end dark tyranny.  Can she do it while she still has the strength to overcome her enemies, or will she only uncover secrets that wash her away in a tidal wave of misery?

I'm excited to say that I received a physical copy of an  ARC for Tidal Wave to review. My first physical ARC (I've had Ebook ARCS before)! I was so looking forward to reading it after reading Spring Tide a few months back. If you have not read Spring Tide, I recommend that you check it out.

The book started out kind of confusing. Spring Tide ended with such a cliff hanger and Tidal Wave just jumps right back into story mode. About a fourth of the way through the book though everything becomes clear. I'm pretty sure my confusion stemmed from the fact that Kris was a totally different person (which is explained and actually adds to the story a little bit in). Kris's alter ego was a bit to take in at first but after a bit you warm up to it and it makes  a lot of sense why the author chose to do it like that.

Something that I want to bring up that I usually don't talk about in a review is the description used in the book. Dicke did an amazing job bringing this vivid world to life. I caught myself at times just blown away by the amazing descriptions throughout the book that make the story come to life, as if you were standing on the beach with Kris.

Now, let's talk about Jericho. Ahh, I am so rooting for him and Kris to end up together forever! I really want things to workout for them. I love their relationship and the way the Chosen world just comes to life. Dicke has created such an amazing world and I love it!

My feelings seriously got played with in this novel. I swear, I felt every emotion in this book. From joy to utter heartbreak, it all hits you like a brick wall which is exactly what a good novel should do.

Now, I don't want to put any spoilers in this review so I'm going to stop there. However, there is so much that goes on in this novel that I just NEED to discuss it with a fellow reader. So please check out the Tide series then come discuss with me! I'd love to hear your thoughts either on this blog or on my book Instagram @ncreads

Rating: 4/5 stars.
