Book 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.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Dash of Mythology, History, and Atlantis January 31, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Greek/Roman mythology has always held a special place in my heart right along with fairy tales and folklore. This story interlaces strands of Greek/Roman mythology, history, and Atlantis. Yes. Atlantis gets its very own characterization. Why? Because the lost civilization leaves some much to the imagination with all the fog surrounding the existence and mysterious technology. Knowing this, I was more than happy to delve into this novel.

The novel had rich environments with great integration of mythology. Unfortunately, rather than a seamless dream, I felt as if I was being jerked around. It started off as being a story about a aristocratic Roman girl, progressing to be a half-godling girl, and then finally about a girl without anywhere to go. A lot to swallow in a single novel. Granted that there was never a dull moment, the story moved too quickly in several regards. I felt as if Calista was simply being tossed about without any will of her own. Yes, that is her character, but she is suppose to be my heroine. The only time she appears to develop a backbone is in her lucky escapes and miserable half-hearted attempt at revenge. It left me wanting more from Calista.

And speaking of rushed, I hate instalove. I really do. I can understand that attractions interpreted as love in historical fictions are usually more acceptable, but no. Not here. I did not appreciate how Calista and Claudius were in a happy bubble of hearts. I do, however, appreciate Calista's reaction and approach to their relationship. On the other hand, there was a slightly slower, only by a minute, romantic development between Calista and Hadrian. The love triangle isn't dominate the novel, but its undertones do influence Calista's decisions and the plot.

2.0 out of 5 stars Anti-Climatic February 22, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book had a lot of potential. I love fantasy, mythology, history, and a little bit of romance. Unfortunately, I don't feel like it ever reached its potential. It's sad, because there are so many directions the story could have gone. . .

Also, the book didn't really have an ending; it just stopped. It almost felt like the author got tired of writing. It made me wonder if there's going to be a sequel, since none of the loose ends were tied up. I don't think I would read the sequel though.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not a bad read February 17, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I found this to be a fast-moving, interesting novel. I liked the premise, set in Roman times about a young lady who ends up in Atlantis and the daughter of a nymph and god. The author's prose was good, though the typos and grammar issues were a bit distracted. I trust a correction will come out soon.

What I liked:
-The strong female characters are a definite plus. These weren't women waiting around for a man to rescue them; they rescued themselves. They fought with the men when needed, and weren't afraid to arm themselves and go after the bad guy.
-The male characters were good for the most part. The protagonist was not overdone and the other male characters worked well with the women.
-I found the pacing of this novel to be good.
-Given that this novel jumped between the Roman Empire, Atlantis, and Gaul, I thought the author gave us enough insight into the life in the three areas without becoming too burdensome.

What I didn't like:
-I honestly am not sure who the hero is in the story. Is it Claudius, Hadrian, or both? Or, perhaps it's Pyp?
-Despite the level of detail about the characters, I was actually quite neutral about them. I don't feel the great urge to get a second book, because now that the first one is over, I could care less about the characters.
-The ending did this book no favors. It just ended. Given the amount of story-telling, the ending should have had the reader wanting to get the next book. Instead, as I saw that I was in the 90% completion range and given all the action that was happening I was beginning to wonder if the book would just stop. It didn't, but the ending wasn't satisfying either.
-There wasn't enough development of the characters in Atlantis. They came off as shallow and petty.

1.0 out of 5 stars Content Shocking for Children Section April 23, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This book has to be the worst book I have ever read in my life due to bad content. I was looking for a good CLEAN book to read on my kindle when I came across "Daughter of the Sea" in the children's section. May I repeat the children's section. I read the reveiws and noticed that the only thing they had to complain about was not likeing the story line or the characters or what not. Nobody said a word about the fact that there is swearing, drinking, characters getting drunk, characters having mistresses and wives at the same time, countless sexual references, bloody gore, people murdered in cold blood, someone who has a thing for his half sister, and an extremely detailed birth scene. Okay, for a book I do not mind a bit of gore and I really don't mind murder all that much because usually murder is part of the main plot of the book. Birth scenes are okay as long as they do not go into too much detail unless the book is in the teen section. Then I don't care as much. The same goes for the odd swear word. I don't mind as long as it is reserved for the teen section. My limit is five the whole entire book. The thing about swearing is that there are two different kinds. Example. "Larry cused under his breath as the loose screw slipped from his hand once again." This, in my opinion is fine for children maybe 9 and up. Example two. " The loose screw slipped from Larry's hand yet again. ' What the (swear word, swear word, swear word) is the matter with this (insert more swearing) screw?' he muttered." This actually filled out, is not apropriate for children. Example two swearing though is the exact sort of thing you find in "Daughter of the Sea". This was one thing that disgusted me yet there were worse. I won't even go into detail about the sexual content in this book. Read more ›
