This story was so completely different than your typical romance and I feel madly in love with it.
The book starts out troubling straight from the beginning and while I felt the romance within the first couple of chapters – I had no idea it would all pan out.
The story takes places on the open seas on the Kraken – Leif’s father’s ship that they sail; pillaging, killing, and stealing treasures to sacrifice to the sea Gods, as well as keep themselves.
Tides is in the same ‘series’ as Scars, but they are no way related so you don’t have to have read one or the other first. (They are both great!)
I am telling you, if you like ‘old fashioned’ romance, paired with Vikings – this is a must read!! I am promising you; you will not be sorry!
The authors writing, yet again, captured my imagination from the start as Eilish and her father were awoken by screams heard nearby and were forcibly taken and captured as slaves, or thralls as they were called, to be sold to the highest bidder at the slave market. Her fathers quick thinking knowing of the Viking reputation and desperate to keep his daughter as safe as she could possibly be, cut off her long hair into a shaggy boys cut and told her that her life depended on her being taken as a boy. Now harrowingly separated from her father Eilish caught the eye of Leif, the Viking son of Ragna, who felt sorry for the weak looking slave and was bought to be used as a deckhand on their ship, the Kraken, unbeknownst to him that she was actually a girl.
Leif lived almost as a prisoner himself under his fathers hatred who's only concern was to amass enough treasure to be accepted by AEgir, the god of the sea. His only worth to his father was his shapeshifting abilities while they were constantly at sea raiding. The question is will Eilish be able to keep her secret and stay alive under such gruelling conditions and vicious Viking captors and will Leif ever be free of his fathers invisible chains? How will fate play out for both of these loveable characters?
This is definitely an addictive series to read, each story so far has been completely different and I loved them both, highly anticipating the next book release!
I don't read a lot of romances but Tides has a lot more than romance in it. It is historical fiction with a touch of fantasy and a touch of romance.
The Finn-Gall for the most part seem to be a horrible people but it could be just the view I had of them from this book. Leif's father, uncle, and cousins are all violent men with nothing but wealth and women on their minds (depending on the person). The Finn-Gall are also responsible for raiding Eilish's village and taking Eilish and her father to sell as slaves.
Leif seems to be an exception to the typical Finn-Gall. He actually cares what happens to others, even those not in his family. He only stays with his father out of fear that he will kill Leif's only true friend if Leif tries to leave. His father only wants to keep him around because of the power he has to transform into other beings. Leif's power helps his father raid other ships. I like Leif's character for the most part. It's hard to believe that such a good man will do his father's bidding for so many years without finding a way to get himself and his friend, Agnos, safely away.
Eilish has been taught healing by her father which helps her along the way. She is pretending to be a man at her father's request so that these barbarians won't take advantage of her. Her only desire is to find a way to escape and find her father. Eilish is a likable character as she is brave and stubborn enough to continue living.
I like Natasha S. Brown's writing style. It does get a little too descriptive of surroundings at times and I skipped a paragraph here and there but that's just my personal preference.
I definitely recommend Tides especially if you like historical romance with a touch of fantasy.
