A selkie warrior, a newly transfigured selkie princess…what happens to love when loyalties clash?
Ceannas, a selkie warrior, must protect his clan during the Migration, a rite of passage that occurs every 50 years. When he discovers a runaway selkie, the daughter of his Prince, he must figure out a way to divide his duties, especially when keeping her alive demands all his attention.
Lyall wants desperately to find out where she belongs. When the opportunity comes to visit the Great Elder and save her father’s damaged sealskin, she sneaks away to join the clan in their migration. The only problem? Being born a human, she hasn’t the first clue how to survive on her own as a selkie!

But as Ceannas teaches Lyall how to exist in her new element, the attraction growing between them grows stronger. Can their love withstand their honor-bound duties? And what will it cost each of them to do so?

This book was a bit out of my usual reading norm but I’m glad I took the chance. Sometimes it’s good to step out of what’s safe and explore something new. What I found was solid story with characters I could root for and a redemptive ending that brought it all together in a very satisfying way.
Just because those characters were selkies (definition: a mythical creature that resembles a seal in the water but assumes human form on land.) did not detract at all from a really good story of family love, trust, betrayal and more.
It has all the ingredients you need to settle down for in immersive experience into a world that is different but maybe not so different from the one in which we live. After all, we all love our families and will do whatever we can for them, right? The selkies in this story are no different.
