A thrilling story of a very special magic and the effects it has. When the tides are low, the magic in Shelwich is subdued. The waves just murmur gently. But, when the tides are high, people disappear unexpectedly, magic runs wild and anything is possible – especially for Ista Flit.

Ista is a face-changer. She can transform her looks which helps her to stay hidden and stay safe. It also makes her a perfect detective, a vital characteristic when she sets out on a desperate search for her missing father.

Clare Harlow’s Shelwich is a richly imagined and carefully crafted place that is full of dubious characters and unwholesome intrigue. It is the perfect background for thoughtful, charming and courageous Ista Flit’s magical adventure.

An enjoyable exciting adventure in a magical world where everyone has a different special ability.

I enjoyed Tidemagic. The story is about Ista who has lost her father and is searching for him and other people who have gone missing. In this world there is lots of magic and everyone has a different magical ability but the magic gets weaker and stronger with the tide. It is an exciting adventure with lots of unexpected twists. I enjoyed the book more once Ista was working with Nat and Ruby and they made a good team. The end of the book made me want to keep reading to find out what happened, and I now want to read more about Ista’s next adventures!... Read Full Review

It was the only book I read for three days, which is unusual for me as I usually read at least two.

I was excited at the start of the book because it was really captivating! It was the only book I read for three days, which is unusual for me as I usually read at least two.

The story is set in a place called Shelwich where everyone is born with a tide blessing. This means they have an individual extraordinary power, but this power will only work when the tide is up. 

The main character is an eleven year old girl called Ista and she is a face changer.... Read Full Review
