Synopsis from Goodreads:
Briah’s magical world is shaken, however, when she discovers that her son is the long-awaited savior and future king of the roane (shape-shifting seals, and gentler cousins of the selkies). Briah wants to help these magical creatures, but she is unwilling to allow her son to become a pawn in their deadly schemes. When faced with the choice between sending her child to battle his diabolical father or allowing the roane to be exterminated, Briah insists on finding a third option.
The wide variety of characters and character types in this story was a brilliant addition to the tale. All of the major players in this tale were well developed, giving the reader insight into their lives. I got to know these characters so well that I really found myself identifying with and feeling for them.
As a whole this was a brilliant fantasy tale that steps outside the mould and keeps you captivated throughout. I wouldn’t hesitate to read more by this fetching author.
