Call of the Sea by Rebecca Hart

I LOVE PIRATES! If you are a fan of the films Pirates of the Caribbean you will find yourself enjoying this book.

Elysandra Winters has always yearned for a life of adventure on the rolling seas and is willing to do whatever it takes to fulfill her dream. When her Privateer father continually refuses to allow his only daughter to sail, Ellie defies him, disguises herself as a boy, and goes in search of a captain who will give her a chance to prove her worth. Thanks to the cursed selkie blood coursing through his veins, Daniel O'Rourke needs the sea to survive. After giving up on his humanity and spending three years in seal form, he decides to give his human side another chance. Daniel goes in search of a job and a sense of normalcy, earning himself a position aboard Captain Winter’s ship, The Siren's Call. However, his new captain’s first assignment has nothing at all to do with sailing, and everything to do with his headstrong young daughter.  Years later, when the leader of a band of bloodthirsty pirates murders Captain Winters, Daniel and Elysandra’s lives come crashing back together with the force of a hurricane. Both experts in deception, they must find a way to trust each other if they are to have any hope of hunting down the captain’s killer.

I really enjoyed this book. It's really good paranormal read for those who want to read something else other than the trend of vampires and dystopian novels. Selkies, pirates, and a teenage girl who wants nothing more than to sail at sea, and then the teenage girl falls in love with the selkie, it was such a beautiful and original piece of work. I was very fortunate to get a copy of this book because it was truly amazing to read and gave me some entertainment when I was blue this past week. Thank you Rebecca Hart for writing an amazing book!

Rating 5 STARS!
