The Rising Tide was an exciting book. From the first page, everything starts spiralling towards the final battle with the Crimson Robe. And, as far as the battle aspect of the story went, it was done very well. It was non-stop action, plenty of fight scenes, and quite a bit of character introspection.
As this book just came out at the end of April 2013, I'm assuming that there's going to be more books in the series. I'm desperately hoping so, at any rate...nothing gets resolved in this book. If anything, it just opens up even more questions. What are the Jewels, exactly? What about the prophecy? What about Dylan and Wulf?
Please let there be more! Cliffhangers are my mortal enemy.
