One of my favorite authors ever is Virginia Kantra. I’ve never regretted buying and immersing myself in one of her stories. My absolute favorite thing about her is how profound and engrossing her characters’ points of view are. Her selkies think like beings of the sea, her angels like beings of the air. Her human characters think in the context of their past experiences. Every page contains proof of who her characters are at their cores and where they have been in their lives. I hope one day I will be able to write so well.
Please enjoy these couple of memorable lines from Forgotten Seaand please run out and buy it and the other books in her Children of the Sea series. You can read more about Virginia Kantra and her books here: http://www.virginiakantra.com/

“Are you okay to drive?” He had the mother of all headaches, his magic choker burned like a son of a bitch, and if he didn’t lie down soon, he was going to fall down. “I’m good,” he said, trying to sound confident and cheerful instead of insane. -p. 117
She’d just had car sex, she thought wonderingly. Naked outdoor car sex with a selkie. –p. 210
