Accused of being a witch, Meg
has been banished to the Isle of Mists, where she will be
trained as a priestess. Meg is not happy about her fate, and
one night, while she is looking out the window, she spots the
selkies taking part in an orgy. Their leader catches her eye,
and as she watches him take his consort, she wishes it was
her, and she pleasures herself.
Simeon, the Lord of the Deep,
sees Meg in her window, giving herself pleasure as he takes
his consort. He knows he must have her and when he does, he
knows he can never let her go.
But Meg is mortal and Simeon
is not. Together they face a myriad of dangers, including the
Waterwitch and the mortal priests of the Isle of Mists, to
find a way to be together, forever.
Lord of the Deep
is a lush, sensual book that pulls the reader into its depths
and keeps them warm and happy for many hours. Ms. Thompson
enchanted me with her new world, and I fell in love not only
with the characters, but with the setting. I was entranced by
the many challenges Meg and Simeon faced and the way they came
through them with their love intact.
The secondary characters were
also fascinating. I was happy to see this is the first book in
a series and I anxiously await the second book next spring.
Readers who enjoy tales selkies and magic and who are
enthralled by the water will love Lord of the Deep.
