Suzanne”s review “sAj book review club's photo.

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.

What suzanne says

Halen has issues, but nothing her mother can’t fix with special earplugs, a potion and a lot of motherly love. At least that is what she wants her to believe. Halen’s problems are getting worse, there are sparks coming from her fingertips and there are fires igniting inside her. It isn’t easy to prevent them from coming to the surface, especially when she’s emotional. For years Halen and her mother have moved from city to city, but now they’re back in Rockaway. Memories of her father’s death are stronger here, because it’s where she lost him. Halen has watched him drown when she was a young girl and there wasn’t anything she could do to prevent it.
Halen doesn’t realize how much she’s in danger before someone captures her. All of a sudden she’s in a completely different world she doesn’t know anything about. It is part of her though. Slowly she learns the truth, about her birth, who she is and what she’s supposed to accomplish. How could the people she loved have kept such big secrets from her and what is Halen supposed to do, fulfill her destiny or walk away?

When I saw this gorgeous cover I had to request this book. I love books about worlds hidden under water and this story looked really good. Halen has feelings, a lot of them, it’s what makes her who she is. The author played with that aspect of the story very well. She made everything just a little more important, just a little bit bigger, but it never became too much, which kept the story believable. I liked how Halen thought about the things she was supposed to do and how she always asked questions. The world building is really good and I hope there will be a sequel as I’d love to see more of it. The people around Halen all have their own agendas and some of them are meant to protect her, but in doing so they have to keep the truth from her over and over again. Every relationship in this book is difficult and complicated, because of the greater good. Choices have to be made over and over again and they are never completely right or harmless. That was another thing I liked about this book. Nothing is black or white and entirely good or entirely bad, there’s a balance and a breaking point. It’s the mix of these things that make Coral & Bone an interesting and enjoyable story.

Thank you suzanne a fab review
