Editorial Reviews

Review

"Sophie Moss' sweet rendering of relationships are reminiscent of Nora Roberts. If you've enjoyed Nora Roberts' Gallaghers of Ardmore Trilogy or Three Sisters Island Trilogy, I definitely recommend Sophie Moss' paranormal romance series, The Seal Island Trilogy." ~ TopList-BestFictionBooks.com

"Moss is an exceptional writer and she demonstrates this with a silky smooth plotline that flows effortlessly from page to page..." ~ BestChickLit.com

"...a hauntingly beautiful mythological adaptation." ~ Reviewed by Katelyn Hensel for Readers' Favorite

Loved this book! The story was captivating and the characters interesting. The writing is superb. I thought the author handled the delicate issue of domestic abuse very well. It was nail-biting, edge-of-your-seat reading that last quarter of the book. This is one author whose future books I will look forward to reading. Highly recommend! If you like a good romance with some otherworld magic thrown into the mix, then this book will not disappoint.

What a great first novel for Ms. Sophie Moss. Get swept away to Ireland for a fun story full of romance, adventure, happy endings and myths. I couldn't put it down once I started. The imagery was delightful and the characters full and realistic. Hope there is a series and that other characters in the book like Caitlin and Glenna have their own romances told!

Not included in description, sexual situations. This was a really neat combination of modern (sometimes harsh) reality/romance mixed with fantasy/folk legend. I just wish I had read all of the reviews thoroughly since someone did mention it, there is more sensual (well, descriptive sex) content than I am comfortable with. I've deleted it and am disappointed because it would have been a pretty good story without that. This is not a criticism of those who don't mind, just a word to those who like clean reading.

Sophie Moss has written a story that captures the magic of Ireland and the charm of the sparsely-populated, remote islands off its west coast. This is a contemporary tale, complete with a mythical selkie, a woman fleeing an abusive, deranged husband and, of course, a handsome pub owner who just happens to be the single father of a charming daughter. Although it's not difficult to guess the story's outcome, Moss keeps the suspense high and throws in some surprising twists. She also brings her secondary characters to life and I won't be surprised to find them the focus of the next book in her Seal Island trilogy.

Tara's running away from her past and she decides to go to Seal Island, hoping to find a quiet place to stay for a couple of weeks to gather her thoughts and plan her next move. Of course, she finds more than she bargained for there...legend, friendship...romance...enough to make her reconsider her path, enough to make her want to stay.

I found this book to be quite well-written. The plot made sense, the twists and turns didn't seem too far-fetched. The book was a little shorter than I would've liked and I think the author could've fleshed out some of the characters and parts of the story a little more. The book moved quickly and unlike some books, I didn't find any part of it that really dragged on. In many books I've found myself skipping page after page because they don't really add anything extra to the story and don't hold any important information. In other words, they're material that a good editor would probably have cut out. This book didn't have any of that. Like I said, parts of it could've used a little MORE detail that would only have added to the story but overall I found it to be quite an easy, fast-paced read.

Reading some of the lower ratings I was surprised that people thought this was overly graphic. There were a couple of sex scenes but they weren't out of place and, for me, added to the relationship and therefore, the story. I have certainly read books where sex scenes happened often enough that I would start skipping them so the story could continue, this wasn't like that. The couple of scenes that did occur were done well and didn't drag on, nor were they any more graphic (actually, I think they were less graphic) than any other similar scene in other books.

This suspenseful romance, with it's folkloric/magical aspect, was an "almost there" novel for me. The Irish island and its background mythology were beautifully atmospheric and engaging. Most of the characters were well done and engaging, as well. The writing itself generally flows well and pulls the story along. I'm not usually interested in abused women stories; but I love folklore, and this was a mostly enjoyable read.

Now for the "almost there" part. There were some problems with the POV, character development, and choppiness. The progression of events had holes in it. The hero went from distrusting to loving the heroine very abruptly without any progression or courtship. And while I don't see the heroine's married state to be a big issue, considering her situation; I do have a problem with her jumping into a new relationship just weeks after leaving such an abusive one. This is all a bit disappointing, because with a bit of editing to fill-in the gaps and flesh-out the relationships and mythology, this could have been a very good story.

This was a fine fun read for St. Patrick's Day. It has a lot of tropes which I normally enjoy. Many parts of it are well-written. The reason why I've given it 3 stars is that it suffers from some pacing issues. There were several drawn-out scenes of "I want to work in your pub" "well, you can't because I'm not hiring you" "but I want to" followed up with several repetitive scenes of her not being able to cook but still not being fired.

I didn't feel compelled to root for the romance at all. In many ways I felt like the author knew the two characters well enough in her head that she figured we'd all be into the romance when it finally happened. Unfortunately they were still both cyphers engaging in the typical "romance" flirting of approach-avoidance when the first clinch came.

I just didn't find myself as caught up in the enchantment of the place as the book seems to hope.

The hardest thing though, was that it was almost like two books. In parts it's this romantic Irish tale and then it gets REALLY steamy and REALLY graphically violent. That was pretty jarring because when I read that a book is a "modern fairy tale romance" I think that means a scrim of enchantment and innocence. I don't expect the graphic sex and violence to pop up. I do read books like that and generally don't have a problem with it. But in this book those scenes seemed to break the mood the book was striving for.
