Beyond the Rising Tide by Sarah Beard

Beyond the Rising Tide Audio
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.



What readers are saying:

“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


My Thoughts on Beyond the Rising Tide:

If you follow my segment here on Highlighted Author, you know that I rarely do Reviews. Between my own writing career, Highlighted Author duties, and marketing, I have to choose my reads wisely. They really need to strike me as a great book to dive into using my limited time. Beyond the Rising Time was one such book…

It’s  YA paranormal romance that takes us from Kai’s heroic death to his sneaky return to Earth as (sorta) human, and to the spirit realm and back.  I wrote an extensive review on Audible, but now as I look for it, it’s gone. So, I’ll sum it up here…

Any YA looking for a sweet romance filled with obstacles set against young love should love this book. The audio book version has two narrators, a man and a woman, who switch off as points of view change between Kai and his love interest, Avery. The author tells the story with rich prose throughout. Sometimes the female narrator seemed to get overcomed by the beauty of the descriptions and sounded like she went doey-eyed. I didn’t re-listen to the chapters like this when I lost track of what happened during them, but caught the overall goings on.

Overall, an enjoyable story with a big twist. Give it a try!
