Publisher's Summary

New in the extraordinary series hailed as “a true frolic into fantasy” (Fantasy Bookspot) by a “Master Magician" (Midwest Book Review).
In Edwardian Britain, magic is real. And Masters of the Elements control Fire, Water, Air, and Earth.... Mari Prothero has lived all her life with her father, Daffyd, in a tiny fishing village on the coast of Wales. Though Daffyd takes his boat out on the sea regardless of weather, Mari has learned not to fear for his safety, for her father is a Water mage, and always comes home safely with a large catch. Mari knows that, in her family, children are expected to marry at 18, to an appropriate stranger. However, Mari is a fledgling Water Master with a rebellious nature. She has no intention of agreeing to any arranged marriage. But Mari has yet to learn the truth of the magical heritage that must be protected by these very marriages. For the Protheros are descended from Selkies - magical beings who are able to change from seals to humans - and to continue her line, she must marry a full-blooded Selkie....

Mercedes Lackey Delivers Again

I couldn't put the book down, the story had me captivated throughout. From start to finish the book is a sweetly woven work that all Lackey fans should enjoy. The narrator did a fine job as well.

Still comfort food reading

4.5-5 stars, but really, only because it's Mercedes Lackey, who is my ultimate comfort food novelist. While there was a great deal of STORY, there really wasn't any conflict until the last quarter or so, and the Big Bad Guy(s) was fairly non-fleshed out. Wasn't really a complex story, but it was, as I said, comfort food fluff, and I'll be reading it again. Of course. If you're new to ML, I wouldn't start with this book, as it doesn't show the awesomeness that is Misty, but then, if you're new to an author, you shouldn't be starting at book EIGHT of a series.
