Because she is the only family member without magical skills, Lucy is never included in any Worlds End demon hunting debates. Instead she is expected to remain a good girl teaching school and cleaning after her seemingly always drunken dad.----- Her world radically changes when half-Selkie Prince Conn abducts her as she is the vision of his dreams that he prays will keep his people safe from a threat. Soon afterward a demon lord tries to kill her dog. Outraged Lucy decides no one will harm her or her loved ones; that is when the real odd events occur starting with the improbability of a Selkie lord falling in love with a mortal.------------------ The third Selkie-human "Children of the Sea" romance (see SEA WITCH and SEA FEVER) is a fantastic romantic fantasy as Virginia Kantra enables the readers to look deep into the souls of a lonely single human and a Selkie. The story line is similar to the previous entries as the plot enables the reader to look deep into the hearts of the lead couple and believe in the existence of Selkie and half-breed Selkie. However, Virginia Kantra refreshes her saga by escorting her grateful fans into the realm of the Selkie.------------ Harriet Klausner

"Sea Lord" is the conclusion to Virginia Kantra's 'Children of the Sea' trilogy about selkies. The final book is about Conn, the Prince of the Selkies and Lucy, the last of the children of the famous Selkie witch Atargatis. Lucy learned to hide her feelings at a young age. After her mother left her family taking only her eldest son, her father became an alcoholic and the care of both her father and the family home fell to Lucy. Her one effort to escape the island by attending school on the mainland confirmed her fears--she can't be more than twenty miles from the ocean she fears without becoming ill. So she has resigned herself to a lonely life as a schoolteacher and beloved aunt to her brothers' children.Conn doesn't think much of humans, they are, after all, the last and least of the gods creations. So when he keeps seeing a vision of the human Lucy, he can't figure out why. What he does get, though, is that she will be in some way important to the fate of the sea children. That means she'll need to come to his home...whether she wants to or not!I had high hopes for the finale of this series, but several things kept me from enjoying "Sea Lord" as much as I'd hoped. Conn's attitude towards humans was one and even though he gradually changed his outlook during the unfolding of the story, he didn't do much to try and help her standing among his 'people'. That really, really bugged me and left me wondering how much he truly cared. Even at the end when he was faced with a very difficult choice, I still had a few doubts in the back of my mind regarding his reasons. All this had me questioning the relationship of the main characters. Lucy with her self-worth issues, and Conn with his arrogance issues--a match NOT made in heaven! And the whole alcoholic-father bit just seemed to clear up by magic, not particularly realistic or helpful considering what a real problem this is in today's world.I was also a bit underwhelmed with the fire demons. They weren't very well developed either as an entity or individuals. The ending struck me as a bit over-the-top since the powers used were so much stronger than everything else up til then. On the plus side, I enjoyed reading about characters from the previous books that made an appearance in "Sea Lord". Also, the sexual tension between the main characters was well done, although they did jump right into it! I'm not sorry I read this trilogy. None of the books is overly long and each can be read as a standalone. If you enjoy romances that star some seriously dysfunctional families...Virginia Kantra's latest may be just your cup of tea.
