Summary

Once I was a fae princess with sea-magic at my fingertips. Now? I’m a hunted supernatural in a squalid shop, stripped of my power. My only comforts are stale cookies, Elvis records, and my hula-hoop. Then a lethally sexy fae king arrives and rips even those away. 

After the brutal king throws me in prison, I strike a bargain with him: my freedom in exchange for helping him find a magic blade. What Lyr doesn’t know is that the blade might restore my stolen magic. 

But as we journey, the gorgeous jerk starts to make me feel things I’ve never felt. When Lyr touches me, desire ignites. I see raging passion in his eyes too. If I give in, I risk losing my chance at reclaiming my power…and, even worse, I could be forfeiting my life.

Interesting but kind of weird

One of the first times I’m not sure if I liked a book or not.
The best and brightest parts were was the humorous and sweet relationship between the heroine, Aenor, (a banished Fae princess of a lost kingdom who now lives pathetically below ground in London to hide from assassins) and her teenage human ward, Gina. A lot of detail is put into this very strange World set-up, but then abandoned when the main two characters traipse around Israel of all places.
There are just some seriously dark moments, with characters throwing in humor which screeched on my nerves. The storyline stayed well hidden, you had to go along to figure it out, there are like zero hints where the heck it’s all going. It was just....well, weird.
Its saving grace is the touch of a real and appealing connection between Lyr and Aenor. Lyr is a Demi-God sea fae king of some sort, which is never exactly explained as to why this is or what this means really. He is the most interesting character in many ways, sacrificing himself at times for the right reasons even if he makes mistakes, each time he does he brings into himself a punishment and a mysterious curse.
But... there’s just something ... off. I’m not sure I’ll continue on. Could just be me.
The first book cuts off abruptly by the way. Perhaps it’s intentional, but the abruptness was a bit jarring. I was left not knowing who to root for- it’s like they all are poised to turn better or worse, the last line in fact was a bit creepy. But this ambiguity, and the point that good people can be worn down or confused or warped seems to be a theme of the book. Good people make mistakes, etc., while the apparently bad people have their reasons too. Whatever.
No idea why the story moved quickly from London to Israel. It’s like the authors visited the two cities in Israel and there’s lots of their travel notes thrown in with almost too much detail.
Actually I think I’d just prefer to read the cliff notes of what eventually happens I think.

So good

Wow this book is good, CN Crawford is a new author to me and gosh I’m so glad I pick this one up. After read the second book’s blurb, I’m scared lol be sure I really love her to be with Lyr. Justine Eyre did an amazing job at narrating

Pretty good book.

I listened to this while I was cleaning my home and it was well written. The world building was clear and easy to imagine. All the guys sound the same. But maybe all Fae men sound the same. You know, to enchant us? But I did like this as a fantasy book series start. Leaving room for more

Absolutely must have can't put down book!!!!!

Action packed from beginning to end!!! I absolutely could not put this book down.
I've read it 3 times and it is still riveting...

Absolutely love the characters in this book and the mythology is fascinating.

The Heroine Aenor is brave and endearing. I love that she owns her mistakes and is willing to openly discuss what she remembers about her painful past.

I really like that Aenor doesn't fully understand what happened to her but refuses to be ruled by the fear of the unknown and is fiercely determined to protect others. Aenor protects her vulnerability by wrapping herself in the persona of a deadly killer even as she only seeks to avenge the weak by punishing their attackers.

Lyr well what can I say??? HOT, SEXY AND DANGEROUS... Absolutely the perfect combination of delicious.

C.N. Crawford does not disappoint with this amazing first installment of the Sea Fae series... I can't wait for book number 2 .

This is a must have read for fans. Don't shy away from it because it is more romantic than other series. The plot is amazing and the romance is sexy but not overly done. The relationship builds as the characters interact over time and feels natural to the story dynamics. I can't say enough about how well it was written because I am not one for overly romantic details (I enjoy the less is more approach). This books romance is tastefully done without diminishing the passion between the main characters.

I can't say enough about the intriguing interwoven details of past history and current events. I'm dying to find out what happens next. Grab your copy and get settled in for an epic read... Make sure you have snacks cuz your not gonna want to stop till you finish it completely.
