Marina has been through a lot in the past year; she knows what she wants, and she decides to take matters into her own hands to get it. When a twist of fate takes her away from Aptos, she returns to find that her whole world has changed once again. A fortune teller’s ominous prediction seems to be coming true, people around her aren’t who they appear to be, and to top it all off, she’s being followed again.

Marina and Ethan only want to be together, but find they are being torn apart by their very natures. Can they overcome a final obstacle to build the future they dream of?

My rating: ★★★★★

A wonderful conclusion to a wonderful series.

In this final installment of Marina's Tales, Marina is once again put though many painful tests. First of all, evil peoples are still after Marina's mermaid experiment on them. Marina, of course, will not rest until her sisters are safe...even if it means putting herself in danger one again.

Ethan's mother, believe it or not, shows up out of nowhere, claiming she wants to spend time with her son! But she seems to be doing more bad than good, planting a seed of doubt in Ethan's head that drives Ethan and Marina apart.

Two men and two women, two dark and two light, will also enter Marina's life. Who? Marina has no idea, but she has to keep a lookout. I thought the addition of new characters was very refreshing and it kept me guessing who the two evil people were.

"The Turning Tides" is actually a very appropriate title for the book: it had so many twists and turns, and this happening and was just wow! And you know how there's a lot going on in a book and it sometimes feels overwhelming...well that was so not the case with this one! :D This book had a great story line, awesome and lovable characters, and it had a lot of emotion (I LOVE that in a book!)

I have to say though, I am terribly sad that Marina's Tales have come to an end! The series just got better and better with each book! I'll really miss Ethan and Marina...they were so adorable together! But I'm happy that the series had a satisfying ending (although I'm still a little worried about Olivia). I'll definitely be on the lookout for more books by Derrolyn :)

Have you read this book? If so, what did you think about it? If not, what do you think? Does it sound like something you might want to read? Leave me a comment! :)


  1. The cover's so romantic! I'm glad the conclusion turned out well!

    1. Isn't gorgeous? The author actually made the covers herself, and they are stunning! And yes, great ending! I'm always a fan of that!
