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!
**** If you do not believe in magic, stay away from this novel. But for those of us who do believe, or want to be convinced that magic does exist, here is the novel for you! Written like a fairy tale for adults, this book is perfect to cuddle up with on long chilly nights or days you may be snowed in. It will whisk you away to a warm tropical island. Wonderful light reading.

Gaea, Goddess of the Earth who granted CC this magic comes to CC's aid and every 3rd night CC has to return to the sea and for the rest of the time she is granted legs to return to land, unless she can find a man who can truly love her. CC discovers a royal merman Sarpedon who wants to wed her against her will but, CC is in love with another merman, Dylan CC's troubles are never ending!
This is a really lovely book, its all about magic and myth and another brilliant novel from P C Cast.
Lovely 'feel good' story.
CC/Undine faces complications as a modern woman and a mermaid in the year 1014. To escape the evil clutches of her (Undine's) brother Sarpedon, CC appeals to the Goddess Gaea for help and is granted human form. CC must return every 3 days to the ocean or die unless she can become permanently human by finding a man who will truly love her.
Now this is where the story just wanders off pointlessly. From the start of her adventure CC makes her interest in merman Dylan clear and they fall in love, leaving me questioning why bother getting legs and attempting to woo a human man? Perhaps this was to broaden the scenery and have a modern CC clash with an archaic sexist culture and singlehandedly stem the subjugation of strong women, yet I felt this aspect of the plot didn't jell with the magical/fantasy elements. With its female subjugation vs. feminine power undercurrents "Goddess of the Sea" tried a little too hard to be more than a light hearted fluffy fantasy romance but didn't quite pull it off.
I had further issues with the plot. Why does CC/Undine never appeal to her father Lir (aka Poseidon)? If CC was to reveal his beloved daughter was threatened with rape then surely he would protect her?Read more ›
Goddess of the Sea
Goddess of Spring
Goddess of Light
Goddess of the Rose
Goddess of Love
Goddess of Troy
Goddess of Legend.
Make sure to read Goddess of Spring before Goddess of Light, as Goddess of Light refers heavily to Goddess of Spring and it makes more sense to read it this way round. Also Goddess of Troy should be read after Goddess of Love as again references are made to the Goddess of Love book. These books were fantastic, but one word of warning for anyone with a nervous desposition, Goddess of Love centers around Venus, helping a young modern mortal find Love and desire, this book is a good read but a quite graphic, so not suitable for young readers. But otherwise can't fault, these books follow the the interactions of the Greek Gods and Goddesses with modern mortals, and many of the Gods and Goddesses find were their heart truly belongs. These books are incredable definatly read them!
