Overview

Illusion. Power. Identity.

Tensions are reaching a fever pitch everywhere Kendra Irisavie turns.

Darkness settles over elementals as a new threat stirs suspicions of a betrayal from within. Details of recent events spread through Haverleau, prompting doubts over Irisavie leadership. The mysterious Selkie Kingdom finally opens its doors, but the gesture only fans the flames of division. And despite the perils involved, Kendra finds it difficult to ignore the demands of her heart.

As the body count rises, pressure also grows to shift the tides of war. The sondaleur is on the hunt, but tracking the Aquidae leader is the greatest challenge she's ever faced. With the Shadow playing a deadly game of obsession and horror, Kendra's best chance to win is to unravel a tangled web of deception spanning back to the origins of the elemental world.

Nothing is what it seems and the closer she gets to the truth, the more dangerous her pursuit for answers becomes.

When the unthinkable happens, Kendra must decide if survival is worth the sacrifice.

Conflicting loyalties, fierce passions, and irrevocable choices ignite in the electrifying third installment of the Ondine Quartet.

Unbelievable! This was definitely the best one yet in the series. The mystery is intricate, Kendra's character development is superb, and Tristan is amazing (swoon!). The cliffhanger ending makes me want to go back and reread the entire series for details I missed. The last book can't get here soon enough!!

Book 3 is the best of the series so far. I can't wait to see how Emma Raveling is going to top this one!!! *****SPOILER ALERT***** (For those who don't want too many details of the book, please stop reading.) Crest picks up in New York where Kendra and Julian are trying to take down the Shadow's henchmen in the Big Apple. They are outsmarted and return to Haverleau more determined than ever to defeat the Shadow. As ondines are being killed off left and right, Kendra senses that there is a traitor in their midst and struggles to identify the traitor before it's too late for them all. The chemistry that was always hinted at in Whirl and Billow (Books 1 & 2) between Tristan and Kendra is more developed in Crest. Both are determined to keep their people safe and to end the war, but you can see the depth of their feelings for each other much more in this book. You finally understand why Tristan left at the end of Whirl. You see the length to which both Tristan and Kendra would go to protect each other, the sacrifices that they are willing to make to protect each other and those that they love. As the war is taken to the Selkie Kingdom, there is a lot more interaction with the mysterious selkies. You get a glimpse of their world to see how they train, develop, and interact with the ondines, chevaliers, etc. Initially, not all the selkies are welcoming of the residents of Haverleau, but as the Shadow attacks them on their home turf, you see how the selkies, ondines, chevaliers, etc band together to protect everyone regardless of race. There are devastating casualties, but they draw closer to catching the elusive Shadow. As Crest draws to a close, Kendra and her group return back to Haverleau only to find out that the Shadow has always been one step ahead of them because he is part of the Ondine Society. Can't wait for Book 4 to find out the conclusion of the series. It can't come soon enough.

I have to start off by saying I absolutely LOVE this world Emma Raveling created. It's beautiful and moving, dark and mysterious, and feels engrained in history as if it was a myth from ancient times. This much awaited 3rd book in the Ondine Quartet did not disappoint. Kendra's character is always so great to read from and her growth is massive in this book. Tristan (let's pause a sec so we can fan ourselves) oozes swoon worthiness, dangerous strength, and wisdom that every male should have. I could reread all his moments in this book again and again. ::sigh:: Crest had more mystery than the first two books and kept me constantly second guessing the motives of all the characters. I loved each and every page of it. If you're looking for a fresh new world based inside our own, read these books! Can not wait for book 4 Breaker!!!

Crest is the best book of this series so far. I was wonderfully surprised with the direction the plot and character development. It is a very dynamic from start to finished and left me reeling in the ondine world for a long time after finishing this installment of the series. I am very much looking forward to Breaker

The storyline is interesting and the mystery was definitely well played. However the sentence structure of the whole book is wacked. Very choppy and jarring enough that it constantly pulled me out of the story! Her editors should know better!
