TWIN TAILS: Journey to Oceanus: TWIN TAILS Series, Book 3 is a mythological action and adventure book written and illustrated by CILLYart (Cindy M. Bowles). It had been a perfect New Year’s Day for the Perez family and their friends. The day’s hike had been capped by a scrumptious picnic that both the parents and their kids enjoyed. The day wasn’t over yet, however. After they made their way back to their cars, the families and friends drove back to the Mateo family home for a campfire on the beach. Soon, the campfire was almost ready for making s’mores, but the unearthly call of the siren made Marina and Perla, and their parents, forget all about the chocolaty marshmallow treats. Quinn and Ryanne West, the youngest in the group, were holding their dogs, Bentley and Barkley, who had also heard the siren’s call. When the dogs broke free and raced to the shore, the two children rushed after them. A sneak wave instantly engulfed the four of them and swept them out to sea!
Journey to Oceanus is a fast-paced and exciting fantasy story which follows beautifully from the first two books in the series. I particularly enjoyed seeing Marina's and Perla’s first impressions on beholding their birthplace and experiencing their long-awaited reunion with their birth parents. Bowles’s story eloquently addresses the reactions of the girls’ boyfriends to the discovery of the girls being differently abled, and the ensuing conflict involved in rescuing the children and the dogs will thrill anyone who enjoys sword and sorcery fantasy. CILLYart’s artwork just keeps on getting better and better. I found myself getting lost studying each picture and loved how they so beautifully complemented the story. Bowles’ characters are well developed, and the differences between the twins’ individual personalities are explored in some detail. Her plot is finely detailed and action-packed. Journey to Oceanus is most highly recommended.
