Tide (Sarah Midnight 2) by Daniela Sacerdoti
From Amazon - WITH SPOILERS for DREAMS, Book 1 in the SARAH MIDNIGHT TRILOGY
The Sarah Midnight Triology continues... Sarah Midnight is no ordinary teenager. She is a demon hunter, caught up in one of the deadliest wars unknown to man. Orphaned at the age of sixteen, Sarah learned the family trade of hunting without her parents to guide her but under the watchful eye of her 'cousin', who was revealed to be Sean Hannay, no relative at all, but a dear friend of the real Harry Midnight. Now, in the exciting sequel to Dreams, the fight continues. Sarah and Sean may have defeated the Scottish Valaya, but the rest of the war still rages on, and Sarah, Sean, Nicholas and their companions must unearth the identity and location of the Enemy - the leader of the demons - before the world plunges into the Time of Demons once more. Their quest leads them to Sarah's family home, the Midnight mansion in Islay, and there they discover horrible truths about the demon ruler, his plans, and Sarah's own personal history. Along the way, Sarah must battle not only the demons but her hurt toward Sean and her feelings for the enigmatic Nicholas, who has plans of his own.
Why I Can't Wait:
I really enjoyed the first in this trilogy, partly because it's an ambitious novel told from a variety of viewpoints, partly due to a strong plot, and partly because it has that rarest of things - a love triangle where I actually liked all of the characters! (Check out my review,and an interview with Daniela.) I've been looking forward to this one for a while and was thrilled to be invited to take part in the blog tour - check YA Contemporary on 20th February for a blog post from Dani on Sarah's books!
Release Date: February 21st 2013
