Coral and Bone by Tiffany Daune

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.

I know I have said before that I have read quite a few mermaid stories this year. This book is one of them. This is also a totally unique mermaid story from the others that I have read. The story is about mermaids and sirens. In here, the mermaids are the bad guys which is not usually the case. That alone is already a good start to story. Halen is girl who got sparks from her fingertips. They're like lightning. Tage and her were running from a boy who just came into their house and they both ended up swimming out to sea. When Halen woke up, she was in a different world and secrets about her real identity and about her life had started to surface. One person who he thought was dead was actually alive and now, she must fulfill her destiny, destroy everything or run away from it all. The was a part of the story that was a bit hazy for me. The part were Halen was talking to Asair in his lair was not so clear to me. Somehow, I did not care much about what their conversation was. In away, it was a bit uninteresting for me. I am not so sure. But I might have fallen asleep during this part. But I am glad that it somehow ended well, though it's obvious that there is a next book. Despite that part where I might have daydreamed or my mind was somewhere else, I actually wanted to read the next book. I'm curious as to what's going to Halen. The ending hinted that she somehow did not fully escaped the darkness and Asair's influence. So, that's what's to be expected in the next installment. How that part would come into play when Halen is not entirely herself anymore after her encounter with Asair is totally to watch for. Other than that, I think I enjoyed the story. The secrets and all the things that were kept from Halen really interesting things that would keep you glued the story. Knowing that Halen actually have some other immediate family members that she still had to meet is also a good reason to follow the series. I am especially curious when that other family member will turn up and come face to face with Halen and if Halen will be able to free that person from whatever is keeping her. And of course, the romance part of the story is also still in it's early stages, so a lot could still happen. I'm pretty sure when that long lost family member makes an appearance, she will definitely cause chaos and confusion, especially with these two would be lovers --Halen and Dax. Definitely, that person will affect the relationship of these two. So, there's a lot to be expected in the development of this story and that makes me so curious. I am still looking for a review copy of the second book and haven't found one yet. Hopefully, I would be able to because I wanted to find out if my theories are correct. So, with that said, I give this book 4/5 silver bracelets with star charms. Every day is filled with impossibility, until you have chosen to see the possible. Once you make the shift to see, life is a less frightening journey. Love thrived with trust and wilted with lies. Forgiveness is as easy as love. Letting go is the hard part. - Tiffany Daune, Coral and Bone - Thank you again Tiffany Daune and Ben of Oftomes Publishing for the copy. Sorry for the very delayed posting of the review.

Halen's whole life is being turned upside down when she finds out she's part of a world she's never even heard of. Her true identity was kept from her to prepare her for a mission, a destiny only she can fulfill. Halen is a siren, which means she's half-human and half-Elosian. Elosia is an underwater realm, a place Halen has never heard of, but has to get to know quickly, so she'll be able to save herself and many others. Halen has Tage by her side to protect her and there's Dax, the boy who keeps being a mystery to her. Who is he and what does he want from her? Halen is being prepared to do something that's inevitable, she has to fight Asair. He's locked away, because he's a danger to many different species and only her magic can release their world of his threat. Will she be able to do what's being asked of her and now that Halen has found out she has magic, will she be able to control and use it or will the costs be too great? What should she do and who can she trust? Coral and Bone is a gripping story about a girl's struggles with a huge responsibility that's being foisted upon her. Halen doesn't know about sirens, shifters, hunters, Elosia and underwater creatures. She was kept in the dark about her magical abilities and her purpose in life. She has a twin sister she's never met and discovers that the life she used to live was one big lie. Now she has to adjust quickly and I admired her resilience. At first she has no idea where to start and who is with her or against her and she's reluctant to use magic and to do what's being asked of her, but she slowly finds her strength and learns how to listen to her own intuition. That makes her a powerful main character and I couldn't wait to find out if her mission would succeed or not and how she'd handle the scary situations she finds herself in over and over again. Tiffany Daune's world building is amazing. I was instantly impressed by the different realms she's come up with. Elosia is a fascinating dark place with many dangers. The mystery around Halen's circumstances kept me on the edge of my seat. I was curious to find out who her enemies and friends really are and loved the unexpected and complex ending of this first part of The Siren Chronicles. It's a fascinating series. I love books about underwater worlds and I was definitely enchanted by this one.

Reviewed by Jack Magnus for Readers' Favorite Coral & Bone is a young adult fantasy written by Tiffany Daune. Halen is not terribly happy with her life when we first meet her. Her mother has moved them back to Rockaway Beach, Oregon, and Halen misses bookstores and the big cities they had lived in before the move. Rockaway Beach also holds too many bad memories for her, as she still can see her father drowning on their last swim together. Halen has become hypersensitive to sound and must wear earplugs to drown out others' voices, and strange things happen when she gets angry, like shattering glass and floods. She's already got a reputation at school for being weird, and Tage, the Goth girl who rolls her eyes every time Halen talks to her, and her guardian, Daspar, have become a not entirely welcome part of her and her mother's lives. Tiffany Daune's young adult paranormal fantasy, Coral & Bone, is a fast-paced and exciting story that had me hooked from the very first page. Halen knows nothing about whom or what she is, and the reader gets to discover Daune's world through Halen's eyes. We watch as she learns just how big a role she has to play in the world's future and can empathize with her anger at being lied to and her desire to reject her destiny. Coral & Bone is Halen's coming of age story, and it's grand to see her grow from a self-conscious, isolated girl into a young woman of power. She sets out upon her quest with a marvelous set of companions, including Tage, who is actually pretty cool, and Dax, whose face was strangely familiar to Halen before they even met. Author Tiffany Daune leaves a few tantalizing hints at the end of Coral & Bone, suggesting that a sequel is in the works. I certainly hope so.

Reviewed by Patricia Reding for Readers' Favorite Halen Windspeare cannot figure out why she continues to sketch, over and over again, the same boy, capturing his impish grin, wishing he could be real. So opens Coral & Bone, by Tiffany Daune. Halen and her mother just moved back to the place where Halen’s father had drowned earlier. Irritated by a schoolmate, Tage, and aware that her mother and her mother’s friend, Daspar, are keeping secrets from her, Halen experiences blackouts that send her to the nurse’s office. Before long, she learns that she is no ordinary girl. In truth, she is an incredibly powerful siren, and only she can save the three worlds, Earth, Elosia and Etlis from the evil doings of Asair, the last blue moon siren who came before her. To do so, she must learn to use her magic. Collecting a wide range of friends and assistants, including the boy with the impish grin, Dax, Halen must battle the mermaids and face her dark thoughts in order to gain access to the prison in which Asair is kept so as to destroy him. After all the falsehoods her mother, Daspar and Tage told her in the past, and given the secrets she learns about Dax and her father along the way, will she be able forgive and then learn to trust those she loves enough to see her mission through? Tiffany Daune presents a story that young readers are sure to enjoy—particularly those who seek stories of magic, mermaids and different lands. In Coral & Bone, Daune offers some witty prose (“Three months in a new school and already she would qualify for a frequent visitor card” to the nurse’s office), some interesting word pictures (“Black birds from the mermaids’ vision swarmed her thoughts and she let them peck her broken heart.”), some poetic prose (“The bright light was like a spray of sour lemon.”) and some bits of wisdom (“Let your heart guide you, not your fears. And not revenge.”). I found the teen-centered conversations believable and at times, amusing (“’So what you’re saying is I’m Earth’s last hope,’ Halen said . . . ‘No pressure.’ Ezra smiled.”) Most of all, I genuinely appreciated that this read did not delve into behavior and language that some might find objectionable for the young crowd. Readers will also be delighted to know that Daune wisely set up the story—and its conclusion—for natural sequels.

Reviewed by Samantha Rivera for Readers' Favorite The world that Halen lives in is different from what she ever expected or believed. Unable to stand even being around normal people without earplugs, Halen is stunned to learn that there are secrets about her that she does not know or understand. The world is full of magick and mystery and it’s also filled with people determined to keep Halen alive, no matter what they may have to do or risk to accomplish that mission. Dax, Tage, Ezra and plenty more are going to have to do everything in their power to stop the evil that wants to destroy Halen before she can achieve her mission, but will that even be enough? Coral and Bone by Tiffany Duane will definitely leave you wanting more. I couldn’t stop reading this book from the moment I clicked on the first page. The characters seemed so real and when I thought maybe at the end of the page I could put the book down, something incredible would happen and I’d have to keep going. I absolutely loved Halen and of course who couldn’t love Dax? There was plenty of action and adventure and I loved all the magick as well. I hope there is more to come. Coral and Bone is a book that I would most definitely recommend to all of my friends and any magick lover out there. You won’t be disappointed with this amazing read.
