The Lure of the Shapinsay By: Krista Holle
Rating: 5 Stars *****
As soon as I started this book I was hooked from the very first line. This book seemed to have everything a book should have and the further I read it became apparently clear that it had more. I really enjoyed this book for so many reasons. The legend of the Selkies is a very old legend, it is said that that Selkies live as seals in the sea and humans on land. Krista really made this legend come to life in The Lure of the Shapinsay, and in the process added her own unique perspective to a very old and beautiful tale. As I began reading this book I noticed I started to feel connected to the characters and a strong kinship towards them. Kait is hard headed, very strong minded and pretty much does as she pleases whether anyone likes it or not and I can honestly relate to that in more ways than one. It seems Kait has fallen under the lure that selkies have. For some reason Selkie men can drive human women to do pretty much anything they want even to their deaths but Kait cant seem to shake the feeling she has for this Gorgeous Selkie man while her brother thinks she has gone mad. Is it the lure or is he her one truelove.
If you love a good love story then this is the book for you, I have read many books and this is not like any I have read. Krista really knows how to capture a readers attention and keep it. I am truely looking forward to more books from this Author. If you want to know more Please check out this amazing Author Krista Holle.
