The Lure of Shapinsay Book Review

Author: Krista Holle 

Book Description: 

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. 

Kait is woken unexpectedly 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. 

She 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 Thoughts: 

I loved this book! I'll have to admit I was hooked from the very beginning and read it in one sitting!! I like paranormal books. Selkies are special in that their shape-shifting abilities are tied to their skin. I liked that Kait was not the one holding sway over her lover. It was a very nice change. The ending was a good surprise.

Krista contacted me about doing a review and I immediately knew it was one for me. She did a great job in keeping me into this story. I can't wait to read another book from her.

Disclaimer: I received this e-book from the author, Krista Holle, in return for this review; however, my review was not affected by this fact. My review is mine alone.
