Just her luck to be captured by pirates…
A month before her wedding, Lisbetta turns her life upside down. A seal shape-shifter, she has been raised to rule the ocean. But what she really wants is to walk on land – and her dream is finally coming true. Just not quite as she imagined it.
She can shift her shape from human to seal. She can control the winds and the waves. But will that be enough? If she remains trapped on land, her kingdom will fall. If she returns to the sea, she will lose everything – and everyone – she cares about.
Unfortunately, eighteenth-century Scotland is a dangerous place for magical creatures, whatever shape they wear. As she face pirates, dark magic, and betrayal, how can Lisbetta find her way home?
Magic isn’t everything. Power doesn’t guarantee happiness.
The Wild and Lonely Sea is a historical fantasy inspired by Scottish fairy tales.
This is a new world for many readers but the author brings it to breathing life with very well written prose. It is rewarding to know that this is Book 1 of a series as the story begs to be continued. Highly Recommended.
It wasn’t long before I just had to find out what was going to happen with the main character Lisbetta. I just couldn’t put the book down until I knew she was safe and then I just had to know what happened next.
The book is like a fresh breeze from debut author with a foundation of love, power, magic, emotions and challenges.
Isobel has loaded this book with magic, adventure, and even some romance. She brings her charactures to life, as you can clearly picture them as you read. This fast paced short book is well worth the read.
