"You can expect wicked action and emotionally engaging characters in this deeply satisfying read. Anna Silver has limitless potential and this spellbinding sequel is proof. From her breakthrough style to her genuine characters you can’t help but fall in love with ‘Astral Tide’." --Emma Micheals, Author of the SOCIETY OF FEATHERS series
Astral Tide picks up a few months after the end of Otherborn and the night that London lost her true love,Rye. Now London,Kim,Tora and Zen are being chased by the Tycoons who seem to know where the gang always is located and that's because of Avery,the one who betrayed them in return for a luxurious life.
Apart from them,the Tycoons are looking for people like London,people who have the ability to dream.They are spreading rumors that these people have the sleeping disease and that they must be placed to a specially designed facility where doctors are working nonstop to find the cure when there's nothing wrong with these people. The fact that they're dreaming, means they are getting better and better because people never lost the ability to dream,they just forgot about it...
Hands down,London has become one of my favourite Young Adult heroines.Personally, one of the things that makes a story so good that you want to keep reading it in order to find out what happens next is that throughout the story,the characters mature and grow up.London is a character that since she was little she had to fight every day and that makes her a brave and tough person.But deep down she's still a girl with feelings,doubts and insecurities,things that make her realistic and genuine.
Moreover, Zen is still heartbroken over Avery and when he finds out the truth,he accepts it and moves on.The truth is he's hurt but I don't think he loved her the way London loves Rye. Both Zen and London have lost the people who meant the world to them and that loss brings them close, so close that Zen confesses his feelings to London who is confused and conflicted but in the end she knows where her heart belongs.
We also get to learn more about the Otherborn and their abilities, the Astral, the Otherborn's shelter and the Astral Tide which can carry an Otherborn anywhere, even to the portals of other worlds,even into the slumbering body of a new host.
An explosive,action-packed,adventurous with strong characters, an amazing plot and a cliffhanger sequel that will make you love the dystopian genre even more!
