“I watched the colored lights and sparkles coming off of Sebastian in the dark water, as the ocean began the process of rebuilding his tail. I longed to join him in the water, to wrap my arms around him and let him carry me under the sea; but I wasn’t ready. For him, the ocean was a home; for me it was death. Without being able to transform, the ocean depths would suffocate me, the pressure collapse my bones and flesh.”
After her parent’s accident, Clara is shipped off to live with a grandfather she never knew, in a town she can’t pronounce. In Ireland, she soon discovers that her mother’s secret past is filled with tragedy. Trying to track down the truth, she begins going through changes of her own, until she’s not sure just who – or what – she is anymore.
Then she meets the mysterious Sebastian, who won’t leave her alone, and Ethan, who apparently can’t stand to be near her. Both of them seem to have supernatural powers, and she’s not quite sure whether they want to kill her or kiss her. Just when things are getting interesting, someone attacks her, and she gets a revelation that destroys everything she thought she knew about the world, humanity, and herself.

Here’s the whole book cover:
I love underwater book covers. I don’t know what it is about them, but I love them. Maybe because I like water….or the color blue….or mermaids. But I also love retellings, and this sounds super unique. I’m going to have to google Tuatha de Danann. I have no idea what it is. Which could be due to my pathetic amount of knowledge on classic literature.
OMG! The gist: demigod-ish.
Omg. This book is starting to look really good. I LOVE books dealing with European mythology/culture/legends etc. We don’t see them too often.
Like Doon by Carey Corp and Laurie Langdon
And of course, the recent Magnus Chase book by Rick Riordan.
Have any of you come across awesome stories about Norse, Irish, Scottish…European stories in general?
