“Selkie Bride is wonderful”

Written on: 30/03/2021 by ChrisWhitworth26 (3 reviews written)

I found Melanie Jackson via Liker.com's book page. She is a marvelous author, her characters are real and in depth. I have always had my "nose in a book" and probably read several hundred a year. My wife too. Selkie Bride was one of the first of her work I read, and for us, very difficult to obtain (We live in Poland, and had to order it second hand from America) -we do not buy from Amazon on principle, they are evil. It was worth the 3 month wait for delivery! My son lives in the Hebrides, and the descriptions of landscape, people and culture are perfect. I first heard about the Selkie (or Silkie) via a Joan Baez song, and so the book was a good choice for us. We have obtained a few more of Melanie's books now and look forward to reading them. Highly recommended (or Polecamy as we say here)

“The Selkie Bride ”

Written on: 23/01/2010 by Harriet Klausner (18637 reviews written)

The Selkie Bride
Melanie Jackson
Love Spell, Feb 2010, $7.99
ISBN: 9780505528346

In 1923 recently widowed Megan Colbin believes that in death her late abusive husband did one good deed for her unlike what he did to her in life; he left her a cottage near allegedly cursed Findloss, Scotland. A storm buried the coastal village under tons of sand only fifty years later, Findloss resurfaced with all its buildings intact, but not a soul or human remains anywhere.

Lachlan arrives from seemingly the sea and introduces himself to Megan. He explains he is a Selkie warrior who is on a mission to prevent a nasty peer from causing havoc on land and at sea; and he is also seeking the human female whose heart has called him. As the widow and the Selkie investigate, they learn Megan's husband and his family were implicated in a wizard's evil that needs to be destroyed before more innocent people under the sea and on the coast die.

The Selkie Bride is a fascinating historical romantic fantasy with a delightful lead couple who holds the plot together. However, it is the evil villain who steals the show in this exciting early twentieth century paranormal thriller.

A fair summary, but not emphasising enough that the people characterisations are very real, the area and landscape too (My son lives there) and that it is totally gripping. Highly recommended!
