Adrift (The Last Selkie) By, Elizabeth A Reeves


A review by Terri Kinckner

Meg was all alone in the world after her father passed away. Their farm and every possession had to be sold to pay for his medical costs. With only a beat up old car to her name, she started driving from Missouri, finally ending up in a town called Trinity in Newfoundland. With no money and nowhere to go, she jumps into the sea and thinks she’s died…until waking up in a cottage with a few surprises. Found by a man walking his dog, he brings her to his mother’s cottage where she can stay and help with the multitude of chores that need to be done. Meg finds much more than just a place to stay there. She finds out who she really is, and oh so much more!

This book has been in my kindle for a while. I noticed that it wasn’t a very long read, so I decided to give it a go on a very busy weekend. This book grabbed me from the very first page and didn’t let go until… well, I still haven’t let go! I love books about the Fae, but was unfamiliar with Selkies. I was fascinated by the tale that Elizabeth A Reeves wove (pun intended), and loved how she quickly made sense of the Selkie for me.

Meg is an excellent female lead character, and Devin was completely not what a male lead usually is. I loved that he wasn’t perfectly beautiful, and oh so human (well, mostly). Omyn was a character I immediately disliked, but even I’m not quite sure why. Maura, Devin’s mother, is a wonderful character, and I simply adored her! Even the animals in this book were great!

The only problem I had with this book is that it ended so abruptly! One minute everything is… well, I don’t want to spoil the plot 😉 I just really hope that book two is out soon!

I give this book my “seal” of approval with 5 stars out of 5!
