The second book in the Lost Voices series does not disappoint. Luce remains apart from the tribe, she can’t agree with their newest leader, Anais. Anais will be the antagonist of this book; she is hard to like-assuming the reader even tries. Luce, on the other hand, has blossomed into an even better heroine. She is understanding, compassionate, brave, and strong. She pulls the whole novel together. The boy who Luce saved from the ship wreck in Lost Voices wants vengeance. He is suitable angry and depressed from the loss of his family. Luce, ever brave, meets with him….eventually those meetings grow longer and fonder. Dorian, the potential love interest, sees the Luce is not like the other mermaids; her heart is not set on killing humans. Dorian as a love interest is interesting. He might not be the typical love interest, he really isn’t a hero. He represents a part of Luce’s lost life on land, a chance for her to meet a normal human boy and fall in love. He can be angry to the point of cattiness, abrasive, and pushy; however, he also shows a loving, kind, and helpful side to Luce. Their relationship will undoubtedly interest the reader. The secondary characters made the transition, with the exception of Catarina, to this book. Dana and Violet are the sole characters the reader has a chance at liking. Anais and her group are not easy to enjoy. The author does a great job of developing the secondary characters to continue to hold the readers’ interest in them. Overall, this book was exciting to read and easily as good as the first in the series. Any teen/young adult reader remotely interested in mermaids or fantasy tinged with romance will love this book.

After the events that took place in author Sarah Porter’s novel Lost Voices, I was pumped to begin seeing what happens next in Luce’s new life as a mermaid. For those of you who haven’t read Lost Voices but for some reason are reading this review, not only am I telling you to go and pick up the first novel because it blew my mind, but you should leave this review and check out the review of Lost Voices since this review will most likely have potential spoilers. Now, since I’m assuming that most people have read Lost Voices, you know that the story left off with Luce having just sunk the Dear Melissa and saved that boy from drowning. Well guys, I don’t know if you expected him to have a major purpose in the plot, but that boy who she saved is named Dorian, and Dorian wanted revenge. Who wouldn’t? Mermaids murdered his parents. Luce’s song is haunting his mind. So…Dorian ends up finding ways to speak with Luce and once they begin to communicate a romance blooms between the two characters. You heard me right: Romance. Romance is the one thing that Lost Voice lacked and Waking Storms was just about dripping with it. The one thing that I feel I should mention is that I know most novels mention that a simple kiss is full of lightening and fireworks and stuff, I think that Waking Storms had some of the most accurate descriptions. So for girls who haven’t had their first kiss or something, Waking Storms will hopefully tell you what it’s actually like and for that I give Sarah Porter props. Though despite the romance that took place in the novel, there was a medley of new concepts being added into the story. One of the most important being the fact that humans have begun to discover the existence of mermaids and are searching for evidence and a way to stop the mermaids from killing. Enter Dorian again who gives us insight into the way that the FBI have been searching for survivors from mermaid attacks to give them supporting evidence and maybe even help. That being said, chapters switched between the POV’s of Luce and Dorian and I have to say that I really enjoyed it. Waking Storms is full of twists, turns, and forewarnings. It introduced new characters into the plot and new aspects to the existence of mermaids. Considering that the end of the novel was as gruesome as a Saw movie and had me dying for the next installment in the series, Waking Storms met my expectations. I would recommend this novel to fans of the previous Lost Voices novel, fantasy, and mermaid lore.

This second book of this wonderful series has left me gasping for air. It brings so many point of views and realizations to the story and our reality. I promise you this will bring your mind into a whole level of experience, and it is clearly shown to be a spectacular intense story of Luce and many others. Many emotions are mixed in this story, for us and the characters.

The romance in this book mixed with the action and new characters made the perfect second book. Luce's emotions are passed straight to the reader. Loved it!!!

I love this series!!! Im a fan of fiction books that are in a series. Lately ive been reading books about sirens, mermaids, and werewolves! Siren is a great book if you like books about (duh) sirens! And Moon-Linked is a great book about werewolves!!! The ending of this book left me a little bit mad *** SPOILER ALERT*** I knew the Luce and Dorian were going to break up but still!!!! It didnt actually have to happen, but since it did, im extreamly mad at Dorian!!!!!!!! then with Luce finding the mermaids slautered??? I was like, HOLD UP!!!!! the part where it said that Rachel's head was cut down the middle, and how that was Jenna's foot floating on the water, i was thinking, i know that the humans were going to have to kill them one way but i was thinking of poisoning the water or something. NOT SLAUTER! all in all it was a fantastic book and i cant waig to buy the next one!!!!

The book is truly amazing. How well she makes you understand each character, how she describes everything and everyone, it made me feel like I was in the book right next to which ever character it was she was focussing on at the time. The only thing that disappointed me and really took me by suprise was the CUSSING! It was seriously out of control, it was as if she wanted to make them like reguler highschoolers when they were talking but didn't know how to make them talk like that when they were mad or sensitive about something so the authur just through in half a dozen F and S bombs... If it weren't for the cussing and some other small things,I would have given it all 5 stars. The funny thing is that I don't remember more than maybe one or two small cuss words in the first book. Can't wait for the next book but please NO MORE CUSSING!

I did not like how quickly she was betrayed or how she found all the mermaids dead.

Its a good plot, and i give it credit for that, but the fact that this book is for "young teenagers" bugs me. Im pretty sure the language in here doesnt constitute that age group. Im not even finished reading and i got this on the day it came out and with my normal reading rate, i should be long finished with it, but i just cant bring myself to do so.
