Good Evening to some of you who are still in the Friday night timezone. I’m feeling a little bit better, but still not 100%. I just stayed in bed the whole day and took long naps and would wake up just to get some food in my tummy. I’m hoping to get a really good sleep tonight cause tomorrow is going to be a very long day. Visiting the boyfriend’s fam for lunch and then going to a friend’s party after… so there’s going to be a lot of eating and socializing. Anyway, just wanted to share the first few lines of what I’m currently reading right now so let’s get to it!

Never remove a blade from a wound. Her mom’s warning cried through the howling wind. Could her spirit see Halen now — read her frantic thoughts? How else would her mom have known how desperately she wanted to let Dax sink to the ocean floor? He was a knife in her heart; if she let him go, death would follow.
Holding on tortured her worn muscles as she fought the waves from stealing his body from her grip. The unforgiving ocean shoved Dax forward, ramming his head into her jaw. Screaming, the salt water rushed between her lips, choking her breath. She was a siren — she wouldn’t drown, but it didn’t stop the ocean from trying to claim her.

Darkness is Calling
She sacrificed her soul to save the realms. Now Halen must face a life tethered to a curse. But can she accept a world without Asair and her sister? She has no clue where to find them and with an unconscious Guardian, it’s not as if she can travel far. As the days spin to months, and the elixir she so desperately needs to cast magick diminishes, Halen must learn to survive without her powers while drowning the evil whispers calling to her soul—a call she must never answer. Still, she fears, what if the mermaid’s twisted vision were true? Will the darkness consume her power before Natalie and Asair find her? Will she resist or ruin them all?
So, I really love this series. I actually just posted my reviews for the first two books. If you haven’t read it, I’ll link it down below. I had planned on reading this yesterday night, but as you know, I wasn’t feeling that well. I tried to read a little bit today, but that definitely did not work. Hoping I get to read this weekend cause I’m miss everyone already and I’m so excited to find out how the series ends.
Have you read this book/series? What did you think? Let me know in the comments below.
