Author: Hollis Shiloh
Publisher: Dreamspinner Press
Sub Genre: Urban Fantasy, Paranormal
Elliot doesn’t understand why his magic is broken or why it feels whole again around Rue, until Rue reveals his true nature: he’s a selkie.
Visiting his sister Mary at the lighthouse should be a delightful vacation for Elliot–except he’s going there in disgrace while he awaits his fate from the wizard council.
Mary’s assistant, Rue, is a gentle, self-possessed young man about Elliot’s age. Elliot is drawn to him, and his magic seems to calm down around the handsome and mysterious Rue. Elliot sinks gratefully into the unexpected grace of Rue’s kindness and friendship. He doesn’t understand why his magic is broken or why it feels whole again around Rue. But right now he’s just trying to survive, grateful for the reprieve Rue’s friendship provides.
But then a potential tragedy on the beach culminates in Rue revealing his true nature: he’s a selkie, both man and seal, with a magic that somehow complements and heals Elliot’s when they’re together. And
that might not be possible for much longer.
This is a sweet love story between Elliot a magician, and Rue a selkie.
Elliot does not understand what has gone so wrong with his magic. He only knows that Rue has a calming effect on him and his magic.
A magical council has the decision to take away his magic or make him face a fine but Elliot is scared and even though a jealous fellow student has been found at fault for the broken magic, Elliot May have to pay the price.
Rue will do anything to help Elliot but he cannot fall in love with him, a Selkie mates for life and he won’t risk being left alone.
This was a fun read if you love fantasy books like I do, I would recommend it.
