“There’s something out in that water. Be ready to take the people you love and leave when it comes onshore.”
For three months, Lyric Walker has been trapped in the hunting grounds, the Alpha city at the bottom of the ocean. But Lyric Walker, Brooklyn girl, is not going down without a fight. She makes an unlikely alliance with her jailor, a Rusalka named Husk. Husk reveals the truth about what actually resides in the Great Abyss. The Great Abyss is not some Alpha god but belongs to an unknown clan of monsters, ones who think in a hive mentality and believe anyone who cannot hear their voice is broken and must be destroyed. And Lyric has just woken them.
After a death-defying escape, Lyric makes her journey back to the mainland to prepare humanity for another monster invasion. Once reunited with her parents, Bex, and hot-nerd-with-potential Riley, Lyric has to break the terrible truth.
Lyric was just a girl when the Alpha arrived in her hometown. She was a soldier in the second attack that saved her world. What will she have to become now, and who will she have to leave behind?
When I read Undertow I was thrilled! A new, exciting book! I knew I HAD to get the next in the series, Raging Sea. Then, when I read Raging Sea I loved it even more than Undertow! So good! So, it was natural to long to pick up the next in the series, Heart of the Storm. So... I did...
This book is my least favorite in the series. I honestly didn't like it very much at all. Now, I have read books that were a lot worse, but this one was not very good.
I flew through the first two books yet this one seemed to take a lot longer to read. I think it is because I just couldn't get that into it! There were things about it that just seemed so frustrating and rushed! I hate that I didn't like this book. I really enjoyed the last two so I had such high hopes for this one!
I will still read other Michael Buckley books. I loved Raging Sea so much that I am still open to reading more of his books. I just didn't really enjoy this one.
