"Tangled Tides" by Karen Amanda Hooper

Tangled Tides (The Sea Monster Memoirs, #1)Tangled Tides by Karen Amanda Hooper
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Tangled Tides begins with one whinging heroine, a devastating hurricane and a gorgeous merman. While Yara's initial childishness is annoying, she is actually entitled to throw a tantrum or two when you think of it from her point of view. But once she learns to accept her new fishy life, the magic she embraces also jumps through the pages of the imagination of any girl who wanted to wear a rubbery tail. The novel dives and pivots in different directions and while occasionally easy to spot the twists, manages to stand on its own. After reading so many novels about vampires, shape shifters and angels, it's a welcome respite to dive into uncharted waters. A truly mythical tale, Tangled Tides manages to bridge together YA whimsy and melodrama, with Grecian legends and heart pounding romance.
