Much better Ms. Cast

"On the night of her twenty-fifth birthday, alone in her apartment, Air Force Sergent Christine Canady wished for one thing: a little magic in her life. After drinking way too much champagne, she performed, af all crazy things, a goddess-summoning ritual, hoping that it would somehow make her life a little less ordinary...but she never believed the spell would actually work! When her military plane crashes into the ocean, CC's mission overseas takes an unexpected turn. She awakens to find herself in a legendary time and place where magic rules the land- occupying the body of the mythic mermaid Undine. But there is danger in the waters and the goddess Gaea turns this modern, military gal into a beautiful damsel so that she can seek shelter on land. CC is soon rescued (literaly) by a knight in shining armor. She should be falling in love with this dream-come-true, but instead she aches for the sea and Dylan, the sexy merman who has stolen her heart."--from the back cover. I had been waiting for a different kind of paranormal romance and one with mermaids and a hunky-handsom merman did the trick. I really like Cast's Goddess series: Goddess of Spring, Goddess of Light, And Goddess by Mistake. Feel free to e-mail me for your own recommendations!

The Goddess still reigns............

Goddess of the Sea has a very engaging herione as well as very well developed villains! The herione is capable, intelligent and witty. Ms. Cast's writing style is very appealing to those of us with a particular bent to sarcastic humor! The story has elements of romance, adventure, conflict and accurately portrays the difficulty of making life altering decisions.

Wonderfully Magical Tale!!

Christine Canady "CC" is an Air Force Sergeant, who is about to be sent on a 6-month tour of duty to the Middle East. It is the eve of her twenty-fifth birthday and even her only living relatives, mom and dad, have forgotten the day. So feeling a bit sorry for herself she celebrates alone consuming a couple bottles of champagne which culminated in a bit of a silly, or so she thought, dance on her balcony to the earth goddess and wishing for a bit of `magic' in her life! Soon, she found herself on a C-130 trying to forget how much she hated flying, especially over water...when naturally, the military plane goes down. Harrowing as the crash is, it is even worse as she feels herself being dragged down and knowing she is about to die. But opening her eyes, she discovers herself looking into the face of a most beautiful mermaid and finds she is not only still alive but breathing under water as well. After a brief explanation and agreeing to the mermaid's wishes to become human, she finds her soul switched over into the voluptuous mermaid Undine and discovering that the year and location is 1014 in the waters surrounding ancient Wales. Furthermore, all is not magical, when she finds herself being pursued and almost raped by the royal merman, Sarpedon. Gaea, Goddess of the Earth, (Undine's birth mother) who was instrumental in granting CC this `magic' in her life, comes to her aid, and grants CC legs to return to land with the stipulation that she must return every third night to the sea, else she'd die - UNLESS - she could find a man to truly love her for herself. Whipping up a storm and a story to explain her presence on land, CC is rescued in the water (she's not a good swimmer as a human) by, Dylan, another handsome merman, and brought close to shore. Soon a handsome Knight in shining honor (no kidding) rides up and drags her the rest of the way to land. Before too long, CC is embroiled in medieval politics and danger as the evil Sarpedon begins to use his power to create havoc for CC on land, and she pines for the sensitive merman Dylan who would love her for `eternity'. Every so often I like to try out new authors and switch over to different genres to refresh myself. Reading the summary of this book I expected an amusing funny tale. I was wrong. What I discovered was a really a sensitive and magically entertaining love story. I truly enjoyed this book and perhaps it is because - maybe, deep down, I do believe in magic that I will 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. ---- Marilyn, Official Reviewer for


This book is amazing! The descriptions are wonderfull, it feels like you'd know her characters if they were walking on the street.In this tale of fantasy and romance, an army sergeant named CC switches bodies with a beautiful mermaid goddess named Undine and escapes rape, getting burned at the stake, and marrying a knight, all while falling madly in love with a sexy merman.

The magic in life

I loved this book. It was a wonderful blend of romance and magic. I love the way Ms Cast describes the rich underwater scenery. She has a way of making you believe her story could happen. She lovingly adds a bit of pagan belief structure to her book to get the reader to understand that all women are beautiful, special and create their own wonderful magic. She speaks eloquently of the differences in us all that make us truly unique, and that we should embrace those differences. From the first page to the last, Ms. Cast keeps you spellbound and turning the page, eager to discover what happens next.
