Fatal Tide

Title:  Fatal Tide (East Salem #3)
Author:  Lis Wiehl with Pete Nelson
Pages:  315
Year:  2013
Publisher:  Thomas Nelson
Fatal Tide continues the action and wild ride of Dani Harris and Tommy Gunderson began in the first two books, Waking Hours and Darkness Rising.  I recommend the other two books be read first so the reader will know what is going on.  All the main characters return in this installment with Tommy’s bad puns, his aunt Ruth’s many guns and librarian smarts and Dani’s no nonsense logic.
One of the students, Reese, from St. Aidan’s has escaped and come to Tommy’s house looking for help.  At first, Reese is reluctant to trust those ensconced in Tommy’s house and these members feel the same about Reese.  Can they learn to trust each other?  Reese wants help finding his identical twin brother and doesn’t trust officials at his school to tell him the truth.  What exactly is the mission of The Selected, a group of boys chosen to live apart from the rest of the school population?  Reese finds out his brother has been chosen to be part of this group, but Reese has a very bad feeling about this situation.
Tommy and Dani’s romance continues to deepen and Tommy is ready for a permanent commitment.  Will things ever settle down so he can get Dani alone to ask her this most important question?  The prospects of this happening look grim indeed.  Two of their small group are killed, Tommy’s house is surrounded while dark by deadly creatures brought from Europe, and they soon learn their time of protection is up on Christmas Eve, which is when the bad guys plan for something big to happen.  Quinn is working for the bad guys undercover, so he ferrets out vital information needed to advance the fight of good vs. evil.  Cassandra goes undercover as well into the lair of the man in charge of the whole evil operation to see what she can find out.
This plot will hold readers hostage as they won’t be able to put the book down until they’re done.  There is action, romance, friendships made, family reunited, evil encountered, and faith in God lived out in action and faith discovered by some.  The characters for me are like old friends revisited in that we can meet and begin an adventure as if we were never parted.  There is a fantastic battle toward the end of the book that is just awesome to read!  Don’t miss this book!  I highly recommend all three books in this series.  Kudos Lis and Pete!
My rating is 5 stars.

My rating is 5 out of 5 stars.
This whole series is so worth reading! They excel at suspense and grabbing the heart of the reader, pulling them into the plethora of happenings in the book. The series has a total of four books that can be read as stand-alone stories though I found reading them in order helped enhance my understanding of the plot and characters.
The titles in order are: Convenient Lies, Twisted Lies followed by Generous Lies, which comes before this final novel I am sharing my thoughts on today.Robin weaves such a well-crafted plot that brings the reader into the story from the first page, and then keep turning the pages with all the twists and turns in the plot.I felt like I was right there observing what was happening around me even though I was reading the book.
Time flew by quickly and I was unaware of what was going on around me because I was lost in the pages!Right th…
