I loved it!!! I was mesmerized with this author's skill of story telling, she has a true talent.
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 follows the story of Sade, a girl accused of killing her guardian, survives a storm at sea and washes on the shore of Windwaithe Island. The island itself is familiarized with mermaid folklore and are quite suspicious of Sade when she washes on the shores. Mrs. Rousay and her daughter Estelle help Sade on her path of healing and self discovery. Over time Sade meets the startling Araedyn, whom doesn’t speak their language, but is able to convey their thoughts through emotions and feelings. Soon it doesn’t take long for the Captain Westwood, the captain from the ship that Sade was originally sailing on, to arrive in the island.

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.

I LOVED this book. Oh my goodness it was so emotional. So you think it’s going to be your typical mermaid love story right? Girl falls in love with mermaid royalty happily ever after? Well, parts of it are, but there’s SO MUCH MORE.

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.

Shadow in the Sea by Sheila A Nielson is a fantasy mermaid story. The opening made me feel, drat been there done that, but as I read on, I thought, okay this is a bit different. I know it is hard to come up with a unique and original twist on a common theme, but I think Shelia A Nielson was able to accomplish this in a big way.

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.
