Quick, fun read...
I’m a fan of both authors, especially MacKinnon so I had to check this out. Thankfully, I was able to borrow it from my local library.
It was a fun read, interesting, mostly fast-paced, full of sexual tension, mystery, some mythology and aquatic life. If you enjoy slow-burn RH and intriguing, paranormal reads, I expect you’d enjoy this one.
May not read on in this series, as I feel I’ve got the gist of it from this installment. But an enjoyable enough listen to keep me company at work—no complaints.
Overall, 3.5 stars.

The narrator sounded fine—and that’s fairly high praise coming from me. I cannot listen to most people read at all. However, throughout almost the entire book, there was a bit of background noise. Sorta like lowkey static. It’s mild but … most audio productions I listen to don’t have this, so I worry that the production team could’ve done a better job for the authors & their artwork.
I really enjoyed how this book took aspects from Scottish mythology. The fact that the main character is a Kelpie (which I had to look up) was fascinating alone! I’m on the fence about the book because it was interesting and a good concept, I just struggled getting all the way through. I kinda wish it took a slower pace to get to know the characters a bit more. I do not regret reading it and will most likely read the next book as well!
From the deep
Things worked out great after all they had to go through. Was kidnapped and went to a different world. Good book!
