I listened to the unabridged audio version of The Selkie Enchantress by Sophie Moss and narrated by Hollis McCarthy.
Listening time for The Selkie Enchantress by Sophie Moss is 9 hours, 7 minutes.
The Selkie Enchantress by Sophie Moss is the second novel in the Seal Island Trilogy. I really enjoyed listening to the first novel in the series titled, The Selkie Spell, back in 2014 and once again earlier this month. I knew I wanted to listening the two remaining novels in the Seal Island Trilogy, so I downloaded them both earlier this month.
I enjoyed listening to The Selkie Enchantress by Sophie Moss as it encompasses many of the same characters from the first novel, but focuses more on the budding relationship between Caitlin Connor and Liam O'Sullivan, plus the drama that ensues between them in this novel. I liked that The Selkie Enchantress by Sophie Moss is set in Ireland on an island and deals with Irish folklore and mythology. This is definitely a fun perk of the novel.
However, with that being said, I must say that I wasn't as enchanted with The Selkie Enchantress by Sophie Moss as much as I was with The Selkie Spell by Sophie Moss. The storyline line just didn't resonate with me as much as the first novel in the series did... It just wasn't that engaging as the first novel was. The characters and the plot seemed more inline with a soap opera in some parts. Too much drama!! Plus, I found the ending for The Selkie Enchantress by Sophie Moss to be a bit lackluster as it didn't leave me excited to begin the third novel in the trilogy.
I'm not that excited now to begin listening to the last installment of the Seal Island Trilogy as I was before listening to The Selkie Enchantress by Sophie Moss... I did recently purchase The Selkie Sorceress, so I'll be listening to it for sure.
The following is a plot summary for The Selkie Enchantress by Sophie Moss from Amazon:
Irish islander Caitlin Conner has been in love with professor of Irish folklore Liam O'Sullivan for as long as she can remember. But just when he is starting to look at her as more than a friend, a mysterious woman arrives on Seal Island and captures his heart. As Caitlin discovers the truth behind the woman's lies, she realizes Liam is trapped in a dangerous enchantment and the only way to break the spell is to uncover a secret Irish fairy tale that has remained hidden for hundreds of years. But when the petals of a white rose grown in winter start to fall, the legend is set in motion, and Caitlin must find a way to change the ending before the last petal falls.I am giving The Selkie Enchantress by Sophie Moss a rating of 3 stars out of 5 stars.
Until my next post, happy reading!
I have sometimes found that the middle book of a trilogy is the least impressive.ReplyDelete
Keeping fingers crossed that the last novel is a better read.Delete
Hopefully the third book in this series is more like the first, and not the second. :)ReplyDelete
I finished the third novel last night and just posted my review of it a few minutes ago. Unfortunately, it wasn't as good as the first novel, but better than the second novel.Delete
