Christine Canady "CC" was an Air Force Sergeant. Forgotten on her twenty-fifth birthday, even by her parents, she wished for a little magic in her life. Shortly afterward, her military plane crashed into the ocean. Near death, CC thought she was hallucinating when a beautiful mermaid appeared and offered to swap bodies with her.
CC awakened to find herself in the time of Ancient Wales, where magic could still be found, and CC quickly learned that she had a royal merman, Sarpedon, determined to wed her against her will. Gaea, Goddess of Earth (and Undine's mother), granted CC legs to go ashore, but she must return to the sea every third night or die.
With one crazy merman in the sea, another handsome merman in the sea, a Knight courting her on land, and a shady abbot who was always nearby, CC/Undine had troubles galore!
A really a sensitive and magically entertaining love story! I truly enjoyed this book and recommend this to all of you who want to capture the magic of a truly magical love story. This was a wonderfully entertaining and pleasant read!
I'm a big P.C. Cast fan. I loved "Goddess by Mistake" and am looking forward to reading other books by her.
This one however was...meh. It's classic P.C. that's for sure, mystical creatures, torrid love affairs, and classically unbelievable plots, but this one was just...I don't know...fluffy? Is that a good word?
I expected it to be more "Little Mermaid" like, instead I got an air force gal who gets transformed into someone else...I don't know...
Bottom line, it held my interest, but was hard to swallow, even for a high fantasy book...that says a lot.
This is a totally delightful fantasy featuring a young woman in the military service who escapes death in an accident by changing bodies with mermaid who is really a sea goddess in an alternate reality.
I love how she takes someone from now and puts them in the time of Gods and Goddess comes out with a happy ending for everyone. Our girl makes things come out the way they should in the past using what they know.
Definitely 5 stars! While others review this as inplausible, I say dont read a fantasy book if you want reality. I loved this story and the ending brought a smile to my face and a tear to my eye. I love the Goddess Summoning series. P.C, you did it again :-)
