The Ceruleans #4 Devil and the Deep by Megan Tayte (New Adult, 9/10E, short 'n' sweet review)

Scary scene, gorgeous dress!
September 2015, Amazon, 314 pages, Ebook, Review copy 

Summary from Amazon (I don't benefit from mentioning them)
Scarlett is living her happy-ever-after, back in the real world. Only the ‘happy’ part is proving problematic.

For starters, there’s the isolation. Being a Cerulean among humans is fraught with risk, so her time with people can only be fleeting. Which means being with Luke but not being with Luke.

Then there’s her Cerulean light, her power over life and death. Less awesome talent, as it turns out, and more overwhelming responsibility. And it comes with rules – rules that are increasingly difficult to obey.

But what’s really pushing Scarlett to the precipice is something much bigger than herself, than her life in the cove. A force to be reckoned with:


When long-buried truths are exposed, will Scarlett keep her head above water – or will she drown in the blood-dimmed tide that is unleashed?

Nayu's thoughts
Beware of the cliffhanger ending in this penultimate read - be sure to have book 5 at the ready! & warning, mega fangirl love from me! I forever adore Scarlett, she has so much to deal with and, like me, tends to push herself a bit too far physically and emotionally. Luke is a constant pillar of support, although he has his own struggles too. This review is short, but the series is so good that you have experience it for yourself. There's a lot of family and friendship issues explored, and figuring out what do when life stops being black and white, which is all the time for Scarlett. The truth is still being witheld from her, but I promise there are a few answers before the book ends. Everything else is in book 5!
