Halen knows the sparks igniting under her fingertips are dangerous. She has spent her entire life trying to quell the tingly feelings that make her destroy things, but now that she is back in Rockaway Beach, where she watched her father drown, the flames have become impossible to tame.
Halen is trying to hold on, but when she is thrust into a mysterious new world, the underwater realm of Elosia, she unravels the secrets of her past and can’t help but ignite. As she explores Elosia, she realizes her life has been a lie. And when those who have deceived her come to her for help, Halen must choose—walk away or unleash the magick that could destroy them all.
Coral and Bone by Tiffany Daune is a thrilling paranormal story that captivated me from the very beginning. It’s the type of book that will keep you up late at night and have you dreaming about it.
Duane’s world building is incredibly unique, imaginative, and positively mesmerizing. I was completely fascinated with every single character on land and under the seas. Even though there were so many different backstories, the descriptive writing style had me engrossed the entire time. I thought the plot was exciting, suspenseful, and absolutely entertaining. While there were plenty of dark moments, I loved that Duane sprinkled some humor and romance throughout the story.
The characters were far from perfect, but I found them quite charming and lovable. Halen, Dax, Ezra, Tage, Catch, Pepper, Tasar, the parents, and even Asair… everyone intrigued me in their own ways. They’re all trying to save the world, but who’s really on the “good” side and telling the truth? With all of them pointing at each other and keeping secrets, I’m curious to see how they’d redeem themselves in the next two books… if they do at all.
Overall, I’m really impressed with Tiffany Duane’s gorgeous and enthralling novel. Coral and Bone had fun surprises, heartbreaking moments and mind-blowing twists and turns that had me completely glued to the pages.
If you’re looking for a fast-paced, engaging, and creative YA fantasy story, then definitely add this on your TBR.
