3.0 out of 5 starsNot A Bad Start
Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on August 13, 2021
This review is solely for Daughter of the Selkie King, one of the short stories in this book. Delta is an eighteen year old girl who has never been in the water. The stories of creatures living in their depths has kept her away along with her mother's warning. After her friends convince her to dip her toes into a hot spring, everything changes when a selkie boy appears and seems to know Delta. When Delta's mother finds out it opens up past secrets and Delta must make a powerful decision. Since this was a short story I did expect there to be somewhat of an ending, but was left with a major cliff hanger instead. Maybe that was the author's aim, but unfortunately it wasn't what I was looking for in this read. I still gave it three stars because I did like what was written, although at times for being a short story it felt super rushed in parts and dragged on in others where it wasn't neccesary.
