Review by Carol
A Turn of Tides is book thirteen in the series A Shade of Vampire by Bella Forrest. This book really lives up to it’s name. There is again non-stop action from start to finish but in some instances, there is a turning of the tides.
I think Rose is going through some major transformations in this book. She is sick to death of being the victim, being the weak human. So she decides she will fight for what she wants, to be with Caleb, and get back to the Shade. But first she has to escape the realm of the Ogres.
Annora has tricked Caleb into thinking Rose is dead. Now all she has to do is get Caleb to fall in love with her again.
We have a new creature introduced in this book, dragon shape shifters. The dragons eat ogres. I suspect we haven’t seen the last of them. We might add them to the long list of pending danger to the island of the Shade.
Mona has fled to The Sanctuary believing that Kiev has cheated on her. Of course, Kiev will go to bring her back. Even though this mission has some terrible consequences, finally the secrets of some of the horrible things the witches of the Sanctuary are doing are revealed.
Ben has fled the island believing he is a danger. He needs time to figure out how to be a vampire. Even though I understand why he did this, I’m not too sure he made the right decision. I suspect the vampires he is getting mixed up with are further trouble.
And Micah is still out there. Will he be able to find his way back to the Shade?
The black witches are still conspiring to attack the Shade. Their evilness seems to have no limits.
So, as you can see, chaos continues. Finally some of our beloved characters are reunited back on the Shade but some are still out there in danger. And the vision that Vivienne had towards the end was horrifying. There is still so much danger waiting for all our favorite residents of the Shade. Book fourteen, A Dawn of Strength, is due out in just a couple of days. I can’t wait to see what is in store for them next.
