Product Description

Product Description

Engaged against her will, Calista, a young Roman aristocrat, grapples with the annihilation of her world at the hands of her would-be husband. The violent aftermath uncovers a connection to the mythological land of Atlantis, shattering Calista’s conception of family, the gods—and herself.

Calista does not know why the sea sings in her veins—or why her parents have affianced her to the insidious Lord Avaritus. She watches, powerless, as he ruthlessly annihilates all she loves.

When Calista tries escape with the remnants of her family, a storm strikes their vessel and Calista is hurled overboard. She reemerges in Atlantis, summoned by the leaders of the undersea domain. The very fiber of her identity shudders after she learns that she is the daughter of Neptune—and not quite mortal.

Despite the manipulation of Atlantis’s leaders and the romantic temptations of a pair of smirking grey eyes, Calista must find a way to return to Portus Tarrus to rescue her family and seek revenge against the man who destroyed everything she held dear.

1.0 out of 5 stars Could have been better 19 Jun 2012
By R.M.K.
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Only 2 stars because of poor editing. A lot of telling and not showing. Characters around Calista could have been explored more. Story could have been good if the reader didn't have to self-edit while reading.

2.0 out of 5 stars Careless 23 April 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This author has shown that she is capable of writing a reasonable, if lightweight novel which flowed well and showed a good imagination and ability to develop a story. HOWEVER, it was badly let down by the terrible typing errors which, without exaggeration, littered almost every page - there must have been over 100 mistakes. She has probably put it through spellcheck but not bothered to re-read it herself or, better still, have someone proof read it for her because there are glaring anomalies, such as "nearly" tied laces instead of neatly, "arms tightened monetarily" (I think she meant momentarily) and dozens and dozens of instances where she had obviously changed a phrase or sentence and not removed enough words - the list is endless. Also, Olympia produced a new-born baby claiming that she had a pregancy which didn't show, whereas Calista left Atlantis when she was one year old. A one year old newborn? There were SO MANY errors that frankly, if I had paid for the book I would have demanded my money back!

5.0 out of 5 stars Absorbing 26 Feb 2012
By Tintin
Format:Kindle Edition
THis was a really great story - you are striaght into the Roman world the writer describes and she brings to life the Roman villa where the story starts. Calista is spiky and resourceful - a very modern and bright girl. Do read this and try.
I would love to read something else by this writer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really good! 7 Jun 2012
By Snam
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really liked it. The main character was strong and independent while still being believably human. The story was entertaining and I loved the little touches of humor scattered throughout. It would have been a good buy for £5, for free it was amazing!

3.0 out of 5 stars Daughter of the Sea 20 Feb 2014
By Merissa
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I got this book for two reasons - 1) it was free with 5 stars! and 2) because it involved ancient Rome, mythology, Gods and Atlantis.

However, I have to confess to being disappointed. The potential was there but was just never fulfilled. It felt to me like a lot was touched upon (Gods, a love triangle, war) but never had any depth. The whole plot and storyline was tossed around like a ship in a storm and Calista herself did nothing for me as the heroine of the book.

I would love to hear someone else's opinion on this book.

(April 2012)
