There's always a danger with reading books in a series back to back, but this book was actually better (IMHO) than the first in the series, Sea Witch). Here Caleb's mysterious and conflicted brother, Dylan, meets the very human Regina, adult daughter of the local restarant owner and cook. I liked this book better because I could relate the the characters better, and I really liked Regina, who felt very 3 dimensional, loving struggling single mother with an overpowering mother of her own to deal with. I liked her interactions with Dylan and how the relationship resolved. I'm sorry I have to wait till May 09 for the next book!

Very nice. I enjoyed "Sea Fever" more than Virginia Kantra's first book in the 'Children of the Sea' series. This story has more fire, more excitement, and much more interesting characters (to me). The hero of this book is a cynical selkie (say that three times fast) who has convinced himself that love and caring only leads to heartache. Reading about his reform, almost against his will, was very satisfying!Dylan is the brother of Caleb the hero from "Sea Witch". When Dylan was 13 he had his first change to his selkie form. This led to him finding his mother's skin and she promptly took Dylan and left her mortal son, daughter, and husband. She and Dylan went to the selkie realm and she was killed after being trapped in a fishing net less than a year later. So Dylan has only seen the pain that caring and love brings and prefers to live the light-hearted and nomadic life of a selkie. He can't believe Margred (selkie heroine of the first book) gave up life as a selkie for 'love' of his brother and now lives as a fragile human. He secretly shows up at their wedding and quickly seduces the caterer who catches his eye, then disappears back to the water. When his prince asks him to return to his brother's island because of a worrisome demon presence, he's at first reluctant. Then he realizes he can see the beautiful caterer he can't quite forget. And won't that be the perfect cover?Regina can't believe her life is such a cliche. The only time she 'escaped' from life on the small island, she ended up and unwed mother and returned home. She figures it must be a family thing since her mother raised her alone too, so no men. She'd rather her son life without a father then involve him with a man who 'won't stick'. So when she runs into Dylan while taking a break at a wedding and is instantly attracted, she very leery. Then Dylan says he won't be back and she figures what the heck...at least she won't have to worry about a relationship afterward. Then it's deja vu all over again (HAH) after she turns up pregnant! Now the father of her child has shown up claiming to be not quite human, and he tells her there's a demon after her unborn child. Will sombody please wake her up?Dylan has all the fire I didn't feel from Margred in the first book. His gradual change and his confusion regarding his feelings is extremely well done. The suspense is much better and I found the sex a bit hotter too. If you read the first book, you need to go get this one NOW. If you didn't, you'll probably want to once you read this one. Unfortunately, we'll have another 10 months to wait for the next book, "Sea Lord", which doesn't come out until May 2009 :(

Two Minute Review for "Sea Fever" by Virginia KantraAnother in the Children of the Sea Series. You can really get the single motherhood thing reading Regina's story. You get a sense of what you have to give up, bad choices, things you miss ect. Dylan is a baby in comparison, stunted by other peoples choice, trying to make strides in his personal growth. The people are what is good about the story. The sex is good too. The plot seems thin. There were no plot twists you didn't see coming a mile away. However, I enjoyed it quite a bit.
