Title-Forsaken
Series- Daughters of the Sea-Book #1
By Kristen Day

Blurb:
Once you’ve been touched by darkness, it never leaves you…
Abandoned by her parents as an infant; seventeen year old Hannah spent her childhood wading through countless foster families until being adopted by the Whitmans three years ago.
Unfortunately, Atlanta’s high society wasn’t quite ready for Hannah…or the strange events that plague her.
Chilling visions of murder, unexplained hallucinations, and  dark, mysterious guy who haunts her nightmares all culminate to set in motion a journey of self-discovery that will challenge everything she’s ever believed; not to mention her sanity.
Sent to live at The House of Lorelei on Bald Head Island, NC for ‘kids like her’, Hannah quickly realizes things are not what they seem. Her fellow ‘disturbed’ teens are actually the descendants of mythical Sea Gods and Goddesses. And so is she.
But when Finn, the ghost from her dreams, appears in the flesh; her nightmares become reality and her dark visions begin coming true. Inexplicably drawn to him, she can’t deny the dangerous hold he has on her heart. The deadly secrets he harbors will ultimately test her courage and push the boundaries of her love.
She must decide if she is ready to embrace the ancient legend she is prophesied to be a part of. The fate of all the descendants will forever depend upon it.


REVIEW
Hannah has had a less than stellar life. She was left by her parents at the police station, so no one knows who she is. When she blacks out at a social gathering while talking to her step mother her whole world is set for a change.

She doesnt know what her future holds. She has no one to explain it until her Doctor stubles upon her tattoo, or so she thought it was. Her life will never be the same. Questions will he answers and more will arise. In the end, can she handle her new life?

"Dangerous waters await you, but destiny breathes within you. You shine with a pure beauty all your own."

Forsaken is written from Hannah/Stasia's point of view. She is an awesome charcter. She doesn't get overly freaked by her situation. She keeps an open mind the whole time. At times she thinks somethings cant be true, but hello cant blame her. Her character is completely amazing just as many of the other characters. This book will continue to draw you in over and over again.

Title- Awaken
Series- Daughters of the Sea Book #2
By Kristen Day

Blurb: The sacrifices we make have the power to shift the very fabric of who we are, and ultimately who we are meant to be…
After learning of her true destiny as the intended Leader of the Tydes, Anastasia Whitman must now embark on a perilous quest to the Underworld before the age of eighteen in order to plant the seed of immortality and complete her essence to become a true Sea Goddess. But before she can make her legendary journey, an unexpected new student transfers to Lorelei; initiating a sequence of events that will unravel Stasia’s new life, and test the boundaries of her relationship with the mysterious, dark, and sexy Finn Morrison. The line between the Underworld and the Living begins to blur as gruesome ghosts, morbid reveries, and pure evil haunt her waking hours as well as her sanity. Once the details of Finn’s own startling destiny are revealed, the dangerous secrets he’s been hiding will threaten the very love Stasia believed to be indestructible. As time begins to run out, she will be forced to choose between the one she loves and the destiny she cannot escape.




REVIEW
Just when you think it cant get better, the story proves you wrong.

The time is coming for Stasia to fulfill her destiny. Of course, there is one step she must complete first: journey to the underworld.

In her love life things get... tense. Finn isnt being most forth coming. Secrets being withheld will come out though. Will they withstand their relationship filled with secrets?

When sacrifices must be made will the right choice be made? The competition will be amped and people will be challenged, but only one side can succeed.

Awaken is told from Stasia's point of view. She is such an amazing vharacter. She is quite realistic for having such an unrealistic life. Her character definitely grows a lot in this book. Finn is the same and at times he becomes more insecure. The book is written beautifully and I cannot wait to go on more of this journey.

Title-Chosen
Series- Daughters of the Sea Book #3
By Kristen Day
Publication Date: January 29, 2013

Blurb:
The essence of who we are lies not in what we have, but in what we are willing to give up.  Because in the end, Time and Tide wait for no one.
After sacrificing all that she had, the evil princess of the Underworld is still successful in her bid to tear Finn from Stasia’s life.  In the midst of her search to reclaim him, Stasia is summoned to the island nation of Cyprus to take part in an age-old ritual; unveiling the missing pieces of her ancestry and re-igniting an ancient war.  As she struggles to both save Finn’s soul and free Carmen’s mind, Stasia’s bravery and determination will be pushed to its breaking point.  A dark storm is forming on the horizon, and the forces who are vying to destroy her may be much closer than she thinks.  Destiny weaves a sticky web of evil, betrayal, and revenge that can only be undone by the purity of love and the soul’s unyielding will to survive.  In the last installment of the Daughters of the Sea trilogy, the past will collide with the present as Stasia’s future hangs in the balance.  The prophecy that paved the way for her new life may indeed be the very thing that strips her of the ones she loves the most.


REVIEW
Stasia's abilities must be working because i am clearly blown away.

After the spectacle put on between Finn and Stasia, things are hectic. To add to it all, it is now time to prepare for Stasia's eighteenth birthday. It wont be an easy journey, of course, but with a little help Stasia may reach her full potential. Will it be enough to defeat Keto? What other evil lie before Stasia on this journey?

There will be surprises for Stasia, as well as much heartache. Strength and trust will be questioned, but in the end someone will come out on top.

Chosen is written from Stasia's point of view, for the most part. There are a few spots that are written in Finn's point of view. Given the circumstances of the story it all works amazingly. I absolutely love this book. The series truely keeps getting better. I cannot wait to enjoy more of Kristen Day's amazing work.

Title-Hearken
Series-Daughters of the Sea Series # 4
By- Kristen Day
Publication Date-November 5th, 2013

Blurb-
Sometimes our souls hear what our minds and hearts refuse to accept. It will whisper its continuous cadence until we're strong enough to glimpse the truth. When the soul's whispers morph into screams, we're forced to gaze into the mirrors of time and see ourselves for who we really are. Would you be able to handle what gazes back?



REVIEW
As with the other books in the series, this book is no exception to the amazing-ness. 

With her biggest issues out of the way, you would think Stasia can finally get on with her life, but that just isn't possible. She still has an Aura standing in her way. Can she succeed yet again? Or has her parents set her up for failure?

Hearken is written just as wonderfully as the others in this series. It is also told with Stasia's point of view taking center stage. Her character has already grown so much and is truly a goddess. She overcomes any obstacle thrown in front of her and does so with grace. I absolutely love this series and would definitely recommend it to everyone.




 



About The Author:
I am a southern belle at heart with a crazy streak that desperately tries to escape at every opportunity. I love all things nostalgic, rustic, and quirky. I've been told I see the world through rose-colored glasses, but I prefer to think of them as kaleidoscope glasses - swirling and morphing reality into something I can digest (who hasn't pretended those pasty lima beans were really kiwi strawberry jelly beans?).
I am the author of the DAUGHTERS OF THE SEA trilogy, which includes FORSAKEN, AWAKEN, and CHOSEN (Winter 2012). I love all books, but really enjoy writing young adult, paranormal romances. I've loved to write for as long as I can remember. My first published work was my poem RED in second grade (you guessed it - it was a poem about the color red - life altering, I know) that won me 5 gold stars and a spot in my elementary school's poetry book. That's when my addiction to the written word officially began. I was the only kid in fifth grade that actually enjoyed diagramming sentences. Go ahead and laugh – it’s okay.
When I'm not writing I'm making jewelry, painting, drinking sweet tea, watching the discovery channel, or going on random adventures in the mountains of North Carolina with my amazing husband. I graduated from Appalachian State University and dream of becoming a full time novelist.
