Book Review: Goddess of the Sea (Goddess Summoning, Book 1) by P.C. Cast

Summary: U. S. Air Force sergeant Christine Canady, CC, feels that there is something missing from her life, that elusive spark. While spending her twenty fifth birthday alone and seemingly forgotten by everyone, CC decides to create a little magic of her own. Fueled by drink and emboldened by the moon, she casts a spell to bring some magic into her life. She never thought that her spell would work, and soon she is taken by surprise when her world is flipped. She embraces the magic, and welcomes the change. After all, how can she refuse a gift that she asked for?

CC ends up in the body of the mermaid Undine, and is immediately assaulted by Sarpedon, a merman. She seeks refuge with the goddess Gaea and comes to an agreement. CC can take the form of a human and live on land, but to remain in that form she must find love. A violent storm rips open the skies, and CC is left floundering in the water in human form. A lovely merman takes pity on her and helps her to land. Though quickly rescued by a gallant knight and taken to a monastery, something is amiss. The monastery offers sanctuary, the knight offers a distraction, yet the call of the sea is unmistakable, and she yearns for the handsome merman who dwells there. Unfortunately, the sea also holds Sarpedon, the one she is hiding from. Where will her heart choose to reside -- on the land or in the sea?

My Review: I thought P.C. Cast did a great job with this book. It's cute and charming...the plot was interesting and the twist in the end was awesome.

My Rating: 4 out of 5

I've been kind of wondering about this since I read Marked, betrayed and chosen (still need to finish the series).
