This review is entirely spoiler free, even if you haven't started this series.

Read my reviews for previous books in this series:

Tidal is a stunning and fantastic installment in an addictive and one of my all-time favorite series. Amanda Hocking was created another brilliant novel!

Let me start off by saying that Amanda Hocking is one of my favorite authors ever, and this is, by far, my favorite series of her. I get sucked into the world so quickly, and Tidal was definitely the best book! SO many plot twists and insane events happen in this book - I couldn't put it down for a second. I loved how Hocking gave us even more perspectives in Tidal by adding in Daniel's POV (which was really cool to see the world through his mind). I can't get over how much I adore Tidal!

The characters are what really brings this book to life. The sisterly love between Gemma and Harper is outstanding, and their bond is taken to the next level. You know who was actually my favorite character of Tidal? Penn. Yep, the antagonist was my favorite character. This has never happened to me before, but we get to learn so much more about her, and I was very intrigued about her storyline! In fact, all of the girls were marvelous. Hocking can weave a villain like there's no tomorrow, and Tidal shines bright.

That ending was absolutely insane! If you thought the endings to Wake and Lullaby were crazy, Tidal is going to blow your mind. I flew through those final 100 pages, and I adored every single second of it. And the last few chapters... I can't get them out of my head! Needless to say, I need Elegy so bad

Overall, Tidal is phenomenal! Rich, dark and highly addictive, Tidal held me tight and never let me go.
