Fractured Tide

We rated this book:


Sia and her mother run a charter for adventurous divers. They run a group out to a newly discovered sunken ship, the SS Andrews. Even though Sia has misgivings about the dive, she takes the group down in the water. An accident brings them back up, and shortly thereafter, her worst nightmare comes true as there is an unbelievable attack on her boat.

Washed up on shore, on an island that is not on any map, Sia narrowly avoids dying of thirst, but thankfully she is reunited with survivors. However, the island seems as unforgiving and dangerous as the sea. When their only hope of survival is to dive down into a deep pool in the middle of the island, they must hope for the best.

Written as diary entries dedicated to Sia’s incarcerated father, the story evolves into one of the best examples of science fiction, as it encompasses so many facets of the genre. It’s perfect for readers who enjoyed Deep Water by Watt Key or episodes of Stranger Things. The deep sea diving is truly frightening, but Sia’s love for her family and hope for the future make her a character to love. Readers will want a friend to share this with, as the ending is open to interpretation.
