Post a Comment Thanks for stopping by and sharing your thoughts with us! My first book about selkies and it was definitely better than I thought it would be. I thought this story was going to be told through the eyes of the selkie male named by his 'captor' Eamon and, it was. However, it is also told through the eyes of the girl, Kait and it seems that it is Kait's story that receives most of the attention in it we find a girl being forced to follow conventions and marry.

Her parents have died and it would seem her twin brother Blair thinks he is doing her a favor by setting her up before he pursues his own bride. He believes this to be especially true since Kait's best friend has a baby that isn't quite human, and, because it was thrown out to sea to drown the selkies want some sort of vengeance.

The Lure of Shapinsay

Eamon, too, is trapped by duty and a fear of humans, except for he can't stay away from Kait for too long. It's pretty cool that this story takes place on the island of Shapinsay during the same time period that Balfour Castle was being built, the middle s, when people still believed in faeries and the evil of witches.

Kait learns that to keep Eamon with her, she must steal his selkie coat, and hide it in a place that no one would ever look.

This is what human men have been doing to beautiful selkie women for ages and it works in reverse, but at what cost. While Eamon and Kait love one another and are bound to one another it must be determined if this love is strong enough to live through so much on both sides of the equation. Although predictable what love story isn't?

I look forward to reading more lovie-dovie romances by Krista Holle and I need to find more books about selkies, as I don't know any of their legends and lore.

Overview 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. Kait is unexpectedly awoken by a beautiful, naked selkie man seeking revenge.

Zoe's Corner: Review: The Lure of Shapinsay by Krista Holle

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? Product Details About the Author. About the Author Krista has been writing since she was nine-years-old when she scribbled out her first adolescent work entitled Merish, the completely illogical but heartfelt story of a girl who was part mermaid, part fish. In , Krista began an intensive four year period working part-time as a critical care nurse while homeschooling her four children.
