Confusing and disjointed, Home From The Sea is a rather disappointing addition to the Elemental Masters series. A fusion of old fairy tale lore and fantasy introduces us to a young Welsh lass, Mari Prothero. As the usual strand of these tales go, she find herself to be half Selkie and bound to marry a Selkie husband to satisfy an old family promise.

The premise isn't original, but done well with a strong female lead. What doesn't work with the novel is the strange entwining with the two young English girls whose backstory I still don't understand. Even worse a third of the novel was used up explaining the back story before any of our protagonists even met one another.
