Curious Tides

Pascale Lacelle

Emory is returning to the prestigious Aldryn College for Lunar Magic for one reason: to uncover the secrets behind the night that left her best friend, Romie, and seven other students dead. But Emory has plenty of secrets herself, not least that her healing abilities have been corrupted by a strange, impossible magic, granting her power no one should possess. Turning to the only person she believes she can trust, Emory enlists the help of Romie’s brother Baz – someone already well-versed in the dangers of his own dark Eclipse magic. But when the supposedly drowned students start washing ashore – alive – only for them each immediately to die horrible, magical deaths, Emory and Baz are no longer the only ones seeking answers. There's a hidden society at the heart of the school, and they’re attracted to nothing more than they are to power...

Curious Tides by Pascalle Lacelle is a sweeping awe-inspiring dive into the murky world of the Aldryn College for Lunar Magic. This book comes highly recommended to those who like a bit of magic and fantasy in their reads. It has you hooked from the first moment with the story, but also the wonderful poetic style of writing.

I was really impressed by the world that Pascalle invented for this story. The descriptive prose helps you imagine what it's really like at Aldyn College. The interplay between the main protagonists is sometimes joy but can cause you to scream at the pages at times. However when you persevere, no hardship honest, you'll discover the beauty that lies within the pages.

The magic system is really very clever, not your usual Harry Potter here. The beauty of the book is not only in the exquisite presentation but the words. It's a story that unfolds as each page opens. A wonderful magical fantasy book.
