Electrician Joe Fisher is used to doing any job, no matter how hard, as long as the money's good. So when he takes a job as a deckhand on a fishing boat, he figures it's all smooth sailing.
If the early mornings and vicious lobsters weren't bad enough, his boss warns him to watch out for the neighbours.
But when he meets Sirena, his mysterious neighbour with her all-female crew, Joe just can't stay away. Even if it could cost him his life.
You'll never look at mermaids the same way again.
Imaginative to say the least
Being a reader of nonfiction normally, I found Ocean's Gift to be an enjoyable read. The settings were rendered in such a manner that I was able to picture it. Being from the US I wasn't familiar with the area but found the descriptions of the environment helpful. The plot and characters, especially in terms of the world of mermaids the author created, were highly imaginative and quite interesting. The human characters were believable and one could relate to their emotions and person. The mermaids were interesting, their differences from humans quite stark, and their interactions with the human world fascinating in terms of perspective. The author's use of varying first-person perspectives in the differing chapters allowed the reader to relate to each of the characters, and she weaves the story together well in this unique format. The plot flowed nicely, with exciting foreshadowing and hints. It kept the pages turning. All in all, an enjoyable read and an imaginative, creative tale sure to please fans of modern fantasies.
