The Blurb:Bound to the water bound to land, a Siren’s soul will never be safe on either side of the ocean’s surface. Hidden beneath the rolling waves lies the secret to Theia’s past and as she unveils each haunting truth, she realizes the last seventeen years of her life have been a lie. Now, drawn into a mysterious new world and with nowhere to turn, Theia must place her trust in Luc, a beautiful boy who stops her heart with each dazzling smile, but even his unearthly charm can’t hide the truth—he has secrets— dark secrets binding him to his world—an underwater world where Theia will never belong—a world determined to destroy her soul.
Surface by Tiffany Daune introduces you to many different characters very quickly. It was a little confusing at first, but everything pieced together as the story progressed. I enjoyed the perspectives of the main characters Theia and Luc the most. I wish we could have heard more from them and less from some of the other characters. I really want to learn more about them. This is a story about Artagasians and Sirens. I've seen many reviews stating that this book is about mermaids, and while they play a role in the book, it's not really about them. At least not completely. I'm not familiar with all the mythology around Sirens, and I've never heard of Atragasians before this book, but they all seem interesting. The plot was engaging with it's romance, danger, betrayals, and twists. It kept my interest from the beginning, and i'm curious to find out what happens next.

The Book Trailer:
Tiffany Daune doesn't get why people want to grow up or why anyone would ever stop eating candy. Her purse is filled with books, lip gloss and a few pieces of Lego bricks. She writes best with a dish of chocolate chips on hand and finds licorice makes a better straw than plastic.
She lives on an island and believes mermaids may be raiding her candy stash, thoughshe hasn't caught them, yet.
Surface is her first novel and pairs well with gummy sharks.
