Book Summary:
After parting ways with her troubled mermaid tribe, Luce just wants to live peacefully on her own. But her tranquility doesn’t last long: she receives news that the tribe is on the verge of collapse and desperately needs her leadership. The tribe’s cruel queen wants Luce dead. Dorian, the boy Luce broke mermaid law to save, is determined to make her pay for her part in the murder of his family. And while the mermaids cling to the idea that humans never suspect their existence, there are suddenly ominous signs to the contrary.

But when Luce and Dorian meet, they start to wonder if love can overpower the hatred they know they should feel for each other. Can Luce fulfill her rightful role as queen of the mermaids without sacrificing her forbidden romance with Dorian? (Courtesy of the Publisher)
Shannon's Thoughts:
Waking Storms is the second installment in the Lost Voices trilogy and it begins right where Lost Voices ends.  Luce and Dorian begin a relationship that seems doomed from the start and further complicating issues is that the FBI has come to town to investigate the mermaids.  

Waking Storms is moodier and angrier than Lost Voices. Dorian struggles a lot with his grief and isn’t always very nice.  In fact, he can be downright nasty and mean.  Luce continues her denial, finding it much easier to ignore her problems than to deal with any of them.  This is kind of annoying because most of the book is about the other mermaids trying to convince her to be their queen and Luce would rather just ignore them and make out with Dorian.  But by the end of the book Luce has to wake up and finally accept that she will need to fight for herself and the others.  She cannot afford ignore it anymore. 

Waking Storms definitely felt like a bridge book.  I didn't enjoy it as much as Lost Voices but overall I really enjoy the series.  You can read my review of Lost Voices here.
