I absolutely fell in love with this book!!!! The story was written beautifully. The plot took so many twists and turns that I had no clue what to expect. I have always loved mermaids so I was very excited about this book. It totally blew me away. The characters were very thought out. I loved all of them, especially Kona...sigh. They are what got me hooked since the beginning.
I loved Tempest as a character. She doesn't understand what is happening to her, and not one person will give her any answers. She is very sarcastic which is hilarious. She loved to surf, but in a way, she hates the ocean. She is so angry, because her mom left them them, and she believes it was the oceans fault. But she took chances. I loved watching her take those chances and grow.
Kona was beyond sexy!!! I absolutely adored him. He did whatever he could to protect Tempest. She was the most important thing to him. I loved him!!!!
I loved the ending of the book!!!! I did cry at the end, because I wanted her not to have to choose between her family and being a mermaid. So when she made her choice, I was happy yet sad. I fell in love with her family. Like her father said, I hope she can end up living half her time on land then half in the ocean.
Tempest Rising was a magical read!!! I have always loved mermaid stories, and the mythology for this story was very unique. I can't wait for Tempest Unleashed!!!! This book was simply AMAZING!!!! This is a must read for everyone.
The cover is so beautiful, especially her tattoo!!!!
