What happens when you release the hero within—and she's a stranger?

When a series of eerily haunting dreams drives amnesiac dreamweaver Cole back into battle too soon, the power she's only just learned to wield fails to show up for the fight. Dreamwalker and childhood friend Ash claims a trip to her long-forgotten homeland in the mountains will help her reclaim her missing magic—and hard-won sense of purpose. Too bad it can only be reached by a perilous voyage across monster-infested waters.

The last thing Cole wants to do is waste days trekking through the wilderness with nothing but a snarky ghost and a boy who's made it his life's mission to save a dead girl for company. Not that she has much choice; if she can't restore her connection to the dreamscape before it's too late, her newfound friends won't be the only ones to pay the price. But more than just monsters stand in her way—and this time, taking back the power to stop them might just break her.

Black the Tides is the second book in an award-winning and binge-ready, lush and labyrinthine trilogy of paranormal-meets-gothic-dystopian YA fantasy filled with monster-infested mountains, haunted forests, and unexpected twists for those who like a little sparkle with their monsters (it glistens so nicely on all the blood.) Fans of cinematic solarpunk utopian planning, dark Northern Gothic forests, and monster-hunting road trips will love this genre-bending dark fantasy with a devastating cliffhanger twist.
