The story centres around Meriel, a witch tasked with guarding the world against a vengeful sea god and his Selkie-like minions. Then one day, thing begin to change when the seal-woman Nor turns up on her island.
It's beautifully written - the loneliness and isolation of the witch is palpable, and the way their interactions unfold is believable and heart-breaking. I will be searching out the author's other work asap.
Don't miss out!
The atmosphere is dream like and slightly Lovecraftian with ancient sea gods, dynastic curses and a town of people shaped from various sea creatures but Meriel's harsh practicality cuts through this and makes it seem totally real. While the term gritty nowadays carries conotations of trying to hard, this is gritty in the best sense. Living in a ruined lighthouse is not romanticised: it's often cold, uncomfortable and cheerless. Nor becomes gradually more human (in the sense that her hands and feet start out not quite right but get better as she spends more time on land). Meriel's ancestors are not wise and benevolent but deeply flawed. Overall I thought this was a great introduction to Diemer's work.
