Product description

Review

Praise for "Home from the Sea"
"Lackey's way with character description is phenomenal. I greatly enjoy being one of thos epeople who is able to visualize books in such detail that it's lamost as though I'm watching a movie, and Lackey does not disappoint in this regard. Every time I was interrupted whilst trying to read this book, when I came back I momentarily forgot I was reading at all. This book was fantastic, and I can't wait to start the series at the beginning."
Bookshelf Bombshells
"Lighter in tone with more emphasis on romance than some of the previous titles, this fairy-tale homage offers a variant view on the usually tragic love between humans and selkies, and should attract both series fans and Lackey's sizable following."
"Library Journal
""With a nod to the Nordic tale 'East of the Sun and West of the Moon, ' the latest "Elemental Masters"historical fantasy is a thrilling tale, due to the brave heroine who will fight for those she cherishes and to keep what is rightfully hers."
"Midwest Book Review
"And for the previous novels of the "Elemental Masters"
"This is Lackey at her best, mixing whimsy and magic with a fast-paced plot."
"Publishers Weekly"
"Richly detailed historical backgrounds add flavor and richness to an already strong series that belongs in most fantasy collections. Highly recommended."
"Library Journal "(starred)
"Fans of fantasy will be thrilled by Lackey's clever fairy-tale adventure."

""All in fine fairy-tale tradition.... It's grim fun, with some nice historical detail, and just a hint of romance to help lighten things."

Praise for the Elemental Masters series:
"The Paris of Degas, turn-of-the-century Blackpool, and the desperation of young girls without family or other protection come to life in a story that should interest a broad readership." --Booklist

Richly detailed historic backgrounds add flavor and richness to an already strong series that belongs in most fantasy collections. Highly recommended." --Library Journal
"Lackey's fantastical world of Elementals, plus her delightful Nan and Sarah, create an amusing contrast for Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes and John Watson.... The mix of humor, history, fantasy, and mystery is balanced in a way that any reader could pick up the book and thoroughly enjoy it from beginning to end." --RT Reviews
"The Elementals novels are beautiful, romantic adult fairy tales. Master magician Mercedes Lackey writes a charming fantasy." --Worlds of Wonder
