Summary from Goodreads

The essence of who we are lies not in what we have, but in what we are willing to give up. Because in the end, Time and Tide wait for no one.

After sacrificing all that she had, the evil princess of the Underworld is still successful in her bid to tear Finn from Stasia’s life. In the midst of her search to reclaim him, Stasia is summoned to the island nation of Cyprus to take part in an age-old ritual; unveiling the missing pieces of her ancestry and re-igniting an ancient war. As she struggles to both save Finn’s soul and free Carmen’s mind, Stasia’s bravery and determination will be pushed to its breaking point. A dark storm is forming on the horizon, and the forces who are vying to destroy her may be much closer than she thinks. Destiny weaves a sticky web of evil, betrayal, and revenge that can only be undone by the purity of love and the soul’s unyielding will to survive. In the last installment of the Daughters of the Sea trilogy, the past will collide with the present as Stasia’s future hangs in the balance. The prophecy that paved the way for her new life may indeed be the very thing that strips her of the ones she loves the most. http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/15767912-chosen

My Review

One of the perks of having a blog? Is that I have this chance of receiving ARC! And I so love it!!! So, I want to thank Ms. Kristen Day  and Michelle Miller of Lovers of Paranormal for this copy. This really made my day! :)

It's been four months now since I read the second book, and though the second book got me sleepless on the first few days after I've read it, my memory can't keep up that long. So it took me awhile to figure out what's going on on the first part of this book. And what triggers in making me remember everything? Just one name -- NADIA. Though I hate to admit it, the moment I read her name, it all came back to me. How I hate her and how I hate her!!! That name put everything back to perspective. How she took Finn away from Stasia after making Stasia's life literally a hell! oh my! I remember how much I wanted to kill her myself.

With all the emotions that brought upon by such a name, I won't blame the third book if at first, it made me feel bored. It started so calm and without urgency which is opposite of what I feel. There are parts that I feel like everything came out so easy and its lacking of action and blood. All I wanted is to get down to business. Fight and Kill Nadia...haha... 

But midpart, it seems like Ms. Day heard my plea and started what I really need at that moment. True to her words, the third book has shown what Stasia's power really is. Her potential and how strong she really is. Though there are still moments of vulnerability, specially when she's in her reverie with Nadia, her power is undeniable. And Finn? Finn took a back seat in this story, maybe because for Stasia to get the spotlight finally. But even if Finn has less scenes that shows his power, it's obviously implied how strong he has become. But it doesn't mean there will be less of Stasia and Finn together in this book. That I assure you! *wink wink

To sum it up, I'm so satisfied with this book. No, let me correct myself-- I'm so happy with this book. Almost all the questions I had were explained to me, a very consistent story, the past-present-future was so harmoniously told, and a very good endng! It made the reader satisfied, but would make the reader ask for more! ONe thing is for sure, I'm going Stasia and Finn!
