About the Author
I write stories about magick, love and dark creatures lurking in the shadows. When I'm not lost in
Edit Land you can find me reading a book from my towering TBR pile or at the movie theater nibbling licorice. I don't have a lucky number, but my favorite time is 11:11. I completely believe that the fortunes found inside cookies will come true and that you must be careful when wishing on stars. I live on an island, so if you want to visit you'll need a boat, and if you want to survive the passage, be sure to bring candy for the mermaids.
My Review of Coral & Bone
I seem to be reading more Fantasy novels lately, so I was drawn to Coral & Bone. After the first chapter, I would have to say I was intrigued and hooked. There are many elements in Coral & Bone that I have seen in other fantasy and paranormal novels, but Tiffany Duane really molds them into her own version. She weaves them together to form a complex story, with detailed care to not become too convoluted.
Halen discovers many things about herself, and about those who she has trusted her entire life. While internally fighting her destiny, she begins to discover that she may not be as weak as she feels. Watching Halen take on and accept her role in the fight against the evil that is destroying the realms is what really captured me. I knew that once she started to work towards her goal, I could not put the book down.
Coral & Bone is a beautifully written novel, and it was such a character driven read. Halen had to make the decisions and fight against her own self to discover whom she really was and who she wanted to become. The other characters surrounding Halen, especially the ones trying to help by her side also make this novel into a must read.
I know this cannot be the last book in this series, and I have heard that it is supposed to be a trilogy. I am excited, because I cannot wait to discover more of Halen’s world. I loved Coral & Bone and I personally cannot wait to see what Tiffany Duance comes up with next for this series.
