Book Review: The Lure of Shapinsay

Hey my lovelies as you know I have been absent because of school lately, but I have been trying so hard to get back to my blog. Well today I have no homework and I decided to do a book review on one of the few books I have gotten a chance to read! So Let's go!

Good Reads Synopsis

Ever since Kait Swanney could remember, the old crones of the village have been warning her to stay away from the selkies. They claim that like sirens of old, the seal men creep from the inky waters, shed their skins, and entice women to their deaths beneath the North Sea. But avoiding an encounter becomes impossible when Kait is spotted at the water’s edge, moments after the murder of a half-selkie infant.

Unexpectedly, Kait is awoken by a beautiful, selkie man seeking revenge. After she declares her innocence, the intruder darts into the night, but not before inadvertently bewitching her with an overpowering lure.

Kait obsesses over a reunion deep beneath the bay and risks her own life to be reunited with her selkie. But when she lands the dangerous lover, the chaos that follows leaves Kait little time to wonder—is it love setting her on fire or has she simply been lured?

My Review: I really enjoyed this book! The mythology and twist on the mythology was really something refreshing to my reader's eyes. I have never read anything other than Greek mythology so reading this was really new. The main characters, Kait and Eamon, were really well put together and were very like-able characters. The alternating POVs in this book were really well written and enjoyable! I loved being able to look inside both Kait and Eamon's minds! Eamon was at times a very irritating character but you couldn't help but to love him yet want to change him a little bit also. This book was one I really enjoyed and was not that hard for me to get through at all. Krista Holle did a great job at writing this lovely tale of love and loss.
