Marisa Lombardi is shocked when she finds a naked, wounded
man near the Sydney Opera House. She’s even more astounded
when she takes him home to help him and finds he’s already
healed. When the man, Dylan, tells her he’s a selkie,
Marisa has a choice to make…
Selkie Skin features a species of
shape-shifter I’ve always found fascinating. There’s just
something cool about selkies. I sympathized with Marisa,
whose loneliness and unhappiness were evident.
Unfortunately, I couldn’t really get into Selkie Skin.
Everything happened so quickly that the love between Dylan
and Marisa felt forced. I think if the book would have been
longer, it would have felt more fleshed out. As it was,
however, while Selkie Skin wasn’t a bad book,
I wasn’t captivated by it either.
