Audiobook Beyond the Rising Tide, by Sarah Beard; Narrated by Dana Dae and Zachary Webber
2016, Clean YA Contemporary Romance
My Rating=5 Stars
Source: I received a free audiobook from I Am a Reader, which did not affect my review in any way
Kai met Avery only once--in the moment he died saving her life. Now when he's not using his new healing powers to help people, he watches helplessly as Avery's life is unraveled by his death. To help her, he risks everything by breaking the rules, dangerously blurring the barriers between life and death.
This is one of my favorite books that I've read so far this year so I jumped at the chance to listen to it (you can read my review here). I love it when an audiobook has a male and female narrator when the book is told from both a male and female point of view. These narrators did a fabulous job!
I loved listening to Kai and Avery's story come to life! Avery is struggling ever since Kai died trying to save her. She has no idea who he is, though, since he drowned and no family reported him missing. From the other side, Kai hurts for her and comes up with a plan to help her move on with her life. His plan takes some unexpected turns, though, and things might not end up the way he originally hoped they would.
I always feel like I get more out of a book when I both read it and listen to it. Even though I knew what would happen, listening to it brought just as much joy as reading it did. This is a book I will listen to again and again. The bottom line is: This book is fantastic whether you choose to read it or listen to it!
Praise for the Book
“Vividly imagined, this novel is the perfect mix of modern love story and literary fiction. One brimming with genuine emotion that had me re-reading passages simply because they were too beautifully written to experience just once.” --Julie N. Ford, author of With No Regrets
“This book is not only an engaging and satisfying supernatural romance, but also a beautiful story about life, death, and the gray places in between.” --E.B. Wheeler, author of The Haunting of Springett Hall
"This is one of those stories that stays with you long after the closing scene. It was beautifully imagined and vividly written and I absolutely loved it!” --Teresa Richards, author of Emerald Bound
