Format: Mass Market Paperback
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!
**** 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.

This is the first of the Goddess series that I have read. I wasn't sure I would enjoy it but, to my surprise, I found it utterly enchanting. Very easy reading, I finished the book very quickly and with a smile on my face. I am looking forward to having some time to myself to read more of P.C. Cast's books.

Lovely 'feel good' story.

I really liked this fairy tale, it was heart warming and had a way about it that just makes you love the characters. It is CC's 25thbirthday - though her father thinks it's her 21st - and seems that she's been forgotten. Feeling a little bit annoyed she gets drunk and performs a Goddess summonig ritual...and then becomes part of a very surreal world in Middle Ages Europe as a Mermaid!!! Then ofcourse there is Dylan the sexy Merman for whom CC falls. Very nice and with an ending that I really enjoyed though it was enexpected. Which mde it even better.

First one in the series and what a taster..... Would recommend all of the Goddess Summoning books and infact P.C. Cast to all adults to read who enjoy this style of book. Fantasy meets Romance in a brilliant blend. To think I only discovered P.C. Cast over Christmas 2009 by accident at the local Tesco's with her Divine trilogy, I have now ordered and read each of her books and can't wait for more.

I always love finding new authors that I like and this book is a little gem. I read it in one sitting. It was just the light, romantic story I needed to take my mind of serious matters.
If you like magic and believe in fairytales then you will enjoy this book. It made me want to drink champagne, dance in the moonlight and wish for magic. I will defiantly try her other books. Hope you enjoy.

Format: Paperback
When her birthday is forgotten by her family, CC does a little solitary celebrating with 2 bottles of champagne. In a drunken moment she wishes for some help in creating magic in her life and encounters a big heap of it when her plane crashes into the ocean. Faced with potentially drowning or switching souls with a beautiful, immortal mermaid the choice is pretty straight forward, but CC is not only catapulted into the body of Undine the mermaid, she is also flung back in time to Medieval Wales.

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?
