For those who also read Forbidden Sea, we find out what happened to the characters in that novel.
Each book can be read alone, but I think you would enjoy more reading in order. I loved both!!!
I so hope for another book by Sheila Nielson!! If she writes it I will read it.
Shadow in the Sea is romantic and heart warming. And has an awesome spin on it. Sade is the Prince Eric in this story and instead of their being a mermaid, there’s a merman. This book is a very emotional tale, but Sade’s story, her discovery in finding herself and finding her courage is very touching. The only thing I didn’t really enjoy in this story is the love at first sight part. I think that for the amount of time Araedyn and Sade spent together, the love happened really fast. But the book is filled with so much other awesomeness, that it definitely makes up for the insta-love story. I really enjoyed Sade’s relationships with the other characters in the story. I think the characters were very well developed, the plot-line, though slow to start, really picks up about half way through the book and is definitely worth it to read it all the way to the end. For a villain, Captain Westwood is cleverly written! The world building was definitely a strength in this book. The way the author describes the people and the world is remarkable.
If you like a little mystery, a tale about rebuilding and healing, and a love at first sight, then I highly recommend this heart warming mermaid tale.
Oh my goodness. I love the old-fashioned feel of this book. The noblemen, the fancy clothes and fancy language, the propriety and impropriety…contrasting so nicely with the fantastical element of the merworld. There was all sorts of island-y superstition and sailor superstition. Rumors of dark magic and spells and love potions, although those weren’t really in the book at all. The book wasn’t too much about the merworld! Some might be disappointed, but I loved seeing how the merpeople fit in with the drama of Sade’s own life, of which there was plenty. Yes, the two distinct parts fit together quite nicely.
Okay, I’ll admit, there is a case of ridiculous insta-love, made even more impossible by the fact that they don’t even speak the same language (not even by the end of the book). But of course I don’t care. I’ve never had a problem with insta-love. What I thought was really cool was that they spoke through emotions. Isn’t that awesome? It’s almost more real than words. Emotions are less precise, but at the same time…more precise, because they’re more true. We don’t have to stop and think about how we want to convey them, unless we’re using words. We just feel them. And if someone else feels what we’re feeling, then that’s the best, more pure way to communicate. So I was fine with Araedyn’s unexpected courtship of Sade. I mean, I do feel like it doesn’t take up much of the book, not nearly enough for her to be feeling so strongly and for what happens at the end, but it’s one of those meant-to-be things. Can’t fight that.Read more ›
Accused of murder, Sade was waiting for her death…until she found herself adrift in the ocean. Tossed overboard and meant to die, she was given a second chance. She was washed up on the shores of the mysterious Winwaithe Island.
Sade pretended to have amnesia. She hid from the others, was she also hiding from herself?
She is terrified of the water, yet unable to resist its call.
She knows the value of all life, whether man or mouse, literally.
I love to hate a villain and Captain Westwood fits the bill.
The characters are wonderful, fully developed and complex. They grow and develop throughout the story.
Is Shadow in the Sea predictable…yes and no. There is something extra that I wasn’t expecting and that is always a very good thing. We have some romance, Sade is a young woman after all. She has loved and lost. Tragedy, yes, we have a violent beginning to what becomes an amazing “tail” of love and sacrifice.
I have never entered a merworld so creative and wondrous. I was enthralled, loving the visualization created by Shelia’s words as we entered her underwater world.
A merman with a beard. Clothes. A city. Dancing. Laughing. Children. Let your mind run wild…mine did and I loved it so much I hated for the story to end.Read more ›

I love this sequel as much as the original Forbidden Sea. I would recommend it to anyone who enjoyed the first book and any young lady who likes mermaid stories.Published 6 months ago by SB409
I love Sheila a Nielson and her writing was just as great, but the new characters hardly compared to the ones in the forbidden sea in terms of realism. Read morePublished 8 months ago by Leslie
