Review of Forgotten Sea by Virginia Kantra

3 out of 5

"He was shaken. Changed. She had changed him. Lara's kiss- soft lips, warm breath, her life, her strength, in him- had ripped through him with the force of a tornado, churning him to the depths. he floundered in a sea of memory and desire, at the mercy of his dreams, a plaything of the waves, a prisoner of his own mind"

Justin has no memory of his past except for the last seven years of his life. All he knows is that is he is most at home when by the sea so he makes a living working on boats and traveling the world never quite fitting in and always feeling as if something is missing. Out of the blue Lara Rho approaches him asking for a date. Little does he know that she can help him discover all that he has forgotten.

Lara Rho is a fallen angel, a Nephilim and a Seeker for the children of air. As a Seeker it is her job to find other children of air before they are found and destroyed by children of fire. The children of air strive for the perfection that they had before they fell and follow the very strict Rule of their Guardians. Those who choose to not follow the Rule become flyers and live on their own hiding from demons and the Guardians. Lara has always followed the Rule and strives to be a strong Seeker for her people. One night she has a dream that leads her to Norfolk, Virginia and to Justin who might be a Nephilim. This chance meeting changes everything Lara knows and sends her and Justin on a journey to find out just exactly who or what he is.

I was very excited when I got this book a read what it was about because I had just told a girlfriend I wanted to read a book about mermaids but I'm getting a head of myself.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Lara Rho is a fallen angel. Given the duty of rescuing the children of air before they can be captured and harmed by the children of fire, she takes her responsibilities seriously. It is because of these responsibilities that she finds herself at a crossroads with her feelings for Justin Miller, a child of the sea.

Justin Miller remembers nothing of his life prior to his rescue seven years ago. He does not know he is a child of the sea. But the sea is where he is most comfortable, and he makes his living working in and around boats and the water. When Lara Rho asks him on a date, Justin realizes that with this beautiful woman's touch, he might soon find the answers he seeks. But the answers he so desperately wants put these two lovers in danger. They have to quickly find out who Justin really is before they are torn apart forever.

Justin is truly likeable in FORGOTTEN SEA. Not knowing who he is has led him to a state of paranoia that comes with losing one's memory. Meanwhile Lara must overcome her reservations about being with Justin: will she be able to continue to fulfill her responsibilities? Lara's introduction into Justin's life comes at the ideal time and the molding of these two characters was dead on perfect.

FORGOTTEN SEA is set in an entirely new world than previous installments of Virginia Kantra's CHILDREN OF THE SEA series. New characters abound in this enriching romance and I, for one, enjoyed meeting every one and can't wait to see who Virginia Kantra introduces readers to next!

I really enjoyed this, especially the blend of paranormal character types (demons,angels,selkie, mer-people) and the real heat between the hero and the heroine. It's rare to read a paranormal where one isn't constantly rescuing or saving the other, but both Lara and Justin (Iesten) were a team. If you're a fan of paranormal romance, on the steamier side :), I'd totally recommend this for your reading pleasure

Forgotten Sea by Virginia Kantra
Paranormal Romance- June 7th, 2011
4 ½ stars

Forgotten Sea is a sweet and charming romance, my favorite in the series. Although previous characters from the series return, this book can easily and happily be read by itself.

Lara Rho had a traumatic young life. She was `saved' by one of her kind and brought to a school that shelters air elementals like herself. Now she is grown up and on an important mission as a Seeker, which is to find unsuspecting air elementals like herself and take them to her school and safety, too. When she finds the young and handsome, Justin, she senses his magic but soon realizes that he is not one of her kind. But what is he? When their combined magic sparks and draws vicious demons like a beacon, Justin saves her but is injured in the process. Lara can't help feeling concern for him and risks her status to take him with her to her school. It doesn't help that Justin has no memory of his early life. But there are those at the school who are not all altruistic and a power struggle puts Justin's life in danger. Soon Lara will have to make a choice between a life of security or a life filled with passion and laughter.

This was a delightful romance with two very likeable young characters that are lost and trying to find their own way. The author puts them on a journey that challenges them and forces them to push their limits but also allows them to grow in self-assurance. Especially Lara, who is constantly pushed outside of her comfort zone. I liked reading her surprise at being able to do much more than she thinks. I was so happy that they had each found a person who loves them despite their flaws and insecurities.
