"Home alone on the night of her twenty-fifth birthday, U.S. Air Force sergeant Christine Canady yearned for something to cure her loneliness. After drinking too much champagne, she recited a divine invocation to revive her humdrum life. But how was she to know the spell would actually work? When her plane crashes into the ocean, CC’s life changes forever. She awakens, bewildered, to find herself in a legendary time and place ruled by magic – and in the body of the mythical mermaid Undine. But danger lurks in the water, ready to swallow CC whole. Taking pity on her, the goddess Gaea turns CC into a damsel so that she might seek shelter on land. When a dashing knight comes to CC’s rescue, instead of falling for this dream come true, she aches for the sea and the darkly sexy merman who’s stolen her heart… "
This is the first in P.C. Casts Goddess Summoning Series! Most of you know of her other series The House Of Night Series which is excellent in my opinion. But these books are aimed more towards Adults. I love Cast's infusion of myth, magic, and romance in all her books. But this book I found fascinating because to me it mirrored my favorite childhood fairytale "The Little Mermaid". I love CC as she transforms from mortal to mermaid to human trapped in medieval Wales to Goddess Of The Sea. She is such a powerful influence on everyone's life she touches whether that be emotionally or physically. And although the book leans more towards romance and myth than inspirational; there is a great message that "All women have a divine power in themselves!" And CC is the very example of this whether she is Mermaid, Mortal or lost in between. But Romance fans fear not because there is plenty of passion pumped into this novel and True Love always conquers all as everyone knows! This is only the beginning and I cannot wait to delve deeper into this series. I have a deep love for Greek and Roman mythology, and if your also a fan or just a true romantic at heart (hey I'll readily admit I am) than this book will have you begging for more Goddess Summonings!
