Home alone on
her twenty-fifth birthday, Air Force Sgt. Christine Canady
has a bit too much chicken and champagne. When she makes a
birthday wish to have magic enter her life she has no idea
how it will change things for her.
Iraq a few days later, the plane CC is on crashes, killing a
man who switched seats with her. CC wakes up in the body of
Undine, a mermaid and the daughter of Lir, God of the Sea.
Undine is not enamored with the sea, and she is being
relentlessly pursued by Sharpedon, a merman who doesnít know
how to take no for an answer.
To help her
escape Sharpedon, the Goddess Gaea turns Undine into human
form. She takes refuge at a monastery, where Sir Andras is
visiting. The knight is intrigued by Undine, but Undine
canít forget the merman Dylan, who helped her in her flight
Dylan is son of
a human and a water nymph, but that doesnít bother CC. Gaea
has told her to search for true love, and she knows that
Dylan is it. Unfortunately they have to battle several
forces in the guides of Sharpeon and Sir Andras. Can the
star-crossed lovers find happiness, or will the fates work
Goddess of the
is the first Goddess Summoning book and it gets the series
off to a rousing start. I thoroughly enjoyed CC, whether she
was in the guise of her Air Force persona or as the mermaid
Undine. She is a strong woman who is not afraid to go after
what she wants and bows to no one when they try to break her
down. I love a strong female lead, and CC is just that.
The love she
shares with Dylan pulled at my heartstrings, and the ending
of the book made me sigh and sob at the same time.
Goddess of the Sea left me wanting more in the
Goddess Summoning series. It is a rollicking romantic ride
that is tender and sweet, and provides heat and love to warm
the readerís heart.
I look forward
to the others books in the series, to see what Ms. Cast has
in store for her readers.
