Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
The fifth installment in Kantra's rich and sensual Children of the Sea series (after Immortal Sea) features selkie Iestyn, aka Justin Miller, living as a sailor and only slowly becoming aware of his heritage after a shipwreck that stole his memory, and fallen angel Lara Rho, who feels Justin's powerful energy and wrongly identifies him as another angel needing protection. After Lara's colleagues imprison Justin as a threat, she escapes with him to find his true home while they evade both her hidebound mentors and the demonic Children of Fire, who are drawn by the powerful erotic energies released in Lara and Justin's powerful lovemaking. Series fans will be intrigued by new details of the high-intensity, soap opera world. First-time readers will be able to dive in and enjoy the heart-pounding pace and the growth of the reckless but emotionally engaging characters. (June)
Library Journal
On a mission to find other nephilim (lost children of air) before they become victims of the demonic children of fire, fallen angel and fledgling Seeker Lara Rho is drawn to itinerant seaman Justin Miller only to find he's not one of her kind after all—but he's not entirely human, either. Torn between loyalty and obedience to her group's controlling leader and the bone-deep knowledge that Justin desperately needs her help, Lara defies the Headmaster and flees with Justin on a treacherous journey to Maine—and the sea—in search of his people and his newly remembered selkie heritage. VERDICT Strong, appealing protagonists realize their linked powers as they fight for their lives and their futures against a cadre of vengeful, relentless villains, demonic and otherwise, in this beautifully written, exquisitely sensual, and action-packed story that delivers a tender, rewarding romance and beautifully meshes with the series. Kantra (Immortal Sea) lives in North Carolina.

Fallen Angel Lara Rho is a nephilim who seeks out to help other Children of Air. Her efforts as a tyro Seeker lead to Justin Miller a sailor who she knows is not human yet not exactly nephilim. When he is injured saving her from an assault, she takes him back to her school for nephilim. Her colleagues fear the unknown Jason and his power so they incarcerate him to Lara's chagrin. She helps him escape and he begins to recover his memory he lost seven years when he was injured during a shipwreck. Jason realizes he is a lestyn selkie. Lara vows to return him to the Children of the Sea while her Children of Air mentors and the Children of Fire seek them out. The fifth Children of the Sea romantic fantasy (see Immortal Sea) is a wonderful tale of forbidden love. The Air female and the Sea male are a delightful pairing of soul mates whose taboo love has them doing rash dangerous things that make them endearing to the reader. Besides a strong thriller, Forgotten Sea moves forward the overarching theme as Virginia Kantra provides an intense tale of air and sea bonding in love. Harriet Klausner

Too many stories and too many angles withan insufficient follow through for any of them. A disappointing read. I'm done with this series.
