Reviewed for queuemyreview book release Oct08This Oct08 release is the trade paperback release of a 2003 original Goddess of the Sea is my first foray into P.C Cast s Goddess Summoning series about normal women transformed by their willingness to believe in the spark of the Feminine Devine that makes all women magical But the series is not about witchcraft and crones and spells and such, rather it celebrates the female viewpoint and the joys to be found in the care of tending of beauty in whatev [...]

My first by P C Cast and I liked it I heard about her House of Night series too but wouldn t dare to read because it s YA Yep, I m currently having disappointed with YA books Anyway, this premise is marketed as adult but after I finished it, I think this book has a bit slight of YA The way CC Undine s the heroine thinking isn t exactly adult like or should I say, childish There are two time settings in Goddess of the Sea and I was confused by it in the beginning of my reading Instead of stay in [...]
My sisters are always critizicing me because Im a bookworm, so when my younger sister brought me this book to read i was VERY skeptical.I have to say the First 100 pages were really slow for me and felt like they dragged too much But once you pass all that you are emerged in a facinating story of not only love but strugle, passion , survival, fear and sorrow There were so many emotions going on that one moment i was overjoyed the next i was crying and then outraged.I have to say that I was very [...]
H muito tempo que estava encantada com este livro e estava mortinha para o ler Achei a capa lind ssima e assim que li sobre o que era fiquei maravilhada Sou uma aut ntica viciada no que diz respeito a deuses gregos Quando soube que era uma cole o delirei completamente e n o pude descansar enquanto n o tivesse os livros todos Infelizmente n o pude come ar logo porque tinha outras leituras pendentes, mas finalmente comecei e acabei A hist ria tratada na terceira pessoa atrav s do ponto de vista de [...]
Thanks goodness i was smart enough not to buy this piece of literature , i d really really regret my money, even if it was 5 centsI have a habit, either good or bad I never give up books, no matter what a torture it can be to finish them Perfect example of pure torture it was After finally, finally scrolling the last page, i ended up with 2 thoughts in my mind There s never ever any book and there can t be about mermaids, better than the original Andersen s The Little Mermaid, anything else afte [...]
I expected this book to be a adult version of The Little Mermaid, but there was a bit to it than that was a sergeant in the USAF, despite her fear of flying first off why would she choose a career which would definitely involve some flying even though she was petrified of it I certainly wouldn t On flying to a new position, her plane crashed in the middle of the ocean and just as she s pulled under the water, a mermaid appears and asks if she wants to swap bodies in order to live and CC readil [...]
Oh This really took my breath away I wasn t anything spectacular from P.C Cast, since House of Night let me down But this book was so heartbreakingly quaint, beautiful, and wonderful IT WAS SO FUCKING HEARTBREAKING I THOUGHT I WAS LET DOWN AT THE END CWhat I loved the most was Dylan and CC.HOLY SHIT HOLY SHIT OK Their true love was described A THOUSAND TIMES BETTER THAN THAT OF LIKE TWILIGHT OR SOME SHIT LIKE THAT Not saying Twilight is shit.But really I felt every single heartbeat that CC felt, [...]

A great mythology fantasy romance Interesting story with interesting twists and surprises, a non stop roller coaster tale.
What an amazingly unique and lovely story A friend of mine recommended this to me and I m so happy she did because I was pleasantly surprised and enjoyed it so much When I first heard it was about merfolk I admit I had some hesitation, but once this story got going it was so hard to put down Not to mention it never went where I thought it would go It was very well written and done in such a way that you end up just believing in the fantasy and rooting for these characters Plus, it has some time [...]
I wanted a book with a pagan and mythological touch to it My friend told me to read this book I immediately got hooked to the Summoning Series by P.C Cast This book was about a young woman, about my age, who led a very lonely, and drab lifestyle She was a pilot in Air Force One night, on her birthday, she decided to enact a spell, and on the following day, she felt pretty silly about that She was summoned overseas and her plane crashed It was when her whole life changed She was instantly transpo [...]
At first I thought this would be another of those silly mermaid stories, but I m lost for words This book was absolutely amazing Parts of this book made me incredibly proud to be a woman and made me feel empowered and strong And the ending was perfect Now I m gonna go cry some .
I love love love these books Bring on the next one.
Eh I had some serious reservations about continuing this book past the first two chapters The heroine, CC short for Christine Canady, a sergeant in the Air Force who is afraid of flying , is just annoying Actually, correction The way the author writes her constant blathering to herself is annoying Beyond annoying More like bizarre If that sounds small and petty, I challenge you to read the first chapter out loud, and think really think, about whether or not you or anyone you know has ever talked [...]
The first book in P.C Cast s Goddess Summoning series promises a tale of romance wrapped within a fantasy or faerie tale wrapping Since it was a book aimed for adults and I found the House of Night series leaving much to be desired, I decided to give this series a try Suffice to say that I liked this better, but at the same time I come away from Goddess of the Sea feeling like expansion and inventiveness could have made it a much better book.It feels like a retelling of The Little Mermaid in a [...]
This is my second PC Cast book and it certainly won t be my last I first read her Goddess of the Rose book and I absolutely loved it This is the first book in her Summoning Goddess series and I can t wait to read them all I may not be familiar with the myths of the ancient gods and goddesses but it doesn t keep me from wanting to read I love how she portrays the women in her story, very sure and confident of themselves If ever I find myself feeling down and need a sudden boost of girl power , t [...]
P.C Cast s Goddess of the Sea has sent my heart into a tide of overwhelming emotions.The journey of this book is simply beautiful and empowering I loved how mesmerizing the characters, plots and settings weree humor and romance in this novel will compel any reader i also strongly believe that the strength and wisdom found within this book will also move you as it did to meThis author has simply made Greek mythology divine and deliciouse only thing i can say now is that I am still trying to reco [...]
Bundan oook uzun zaman nce okumu tum ve yer yer bana ok anlams z gelen olaylar olmu tu ama ben mistik ve a k i eren kitaplar seviyorum ya, genel olarak sevdim o y zden
I bet you guys have to agree with me, this cover is beautiful It s of my favorite covers ever Happily, this is also one of my favorite books If you know P.C Cast then you probably met her the same way I did, through the House of Night series I m still wondering whether I shall review this series or not in the future , a series she wrote with her daughter Kristin Cast Once I found out they were mother and daughter it weirded me out a bit Probably because, if I remember correctly, there are some s [...]
I totally loved Goddess of Love and Goddess of Troy and now understood why in Germany Goddess of Love wasn t published as the first book in the series like it originally is This book was so boring I couldn t connect with any of the characters, there was too much clichee, I didn t like the world which was built here and the romance between Dylan and Christine wasnda strange mostly the sex scenes german review Meine Meinung G ttin der Liebe hat mir richtig gut gefallen, bei G ttin des Meeres hat m [...]
This book was unusual and intriguing.The plot was very likable and I enjoyed it a lot The beginning was weird, but it grew on me.The middle was great.The crescendo was heartfelt, horrible yet beautiful and heartwarming.The finish ending was wonderful, absolutely brilliant.The characters were all portrayed really nicely.The worldbuilding was seamless.The language was good, not really anything to complain about at least I don t have anything to complain about.The themes represented in the book wer [...]
O progresso que a hist ria deste livro vai tendo incr vel inicialmente, quando li os primeiros cap tulos s pensei isto mais uma hist ria de era uma vez e viveram felizes para sempre a protagonista tem de acabar com uma maldi o para poder ficar com o seu mais que tudo e bla bla bla e de facto acaba por ser isso mesmo, mas os ltimos cap tulos mudam tudo Chorei com as ltimas p ginas, e nada acontece como fomos planeando medida que lemos o livro Vale a pena ler
UUUGGGHHH what a waste of time, if i had to describe this book it would be little mermaid meets house of night though, instead of Sebastian she got a dolphin at least the crab could sing what a lack of imagination , even I can steal pieces of other stories and semi write my own, that doesn t make me a writer
Great book Disappointing ending.
First this is a 3.5 Star book just won t help Goddess of the Sea turned out to be a pretty good book with a little pacing issue The book started out with a conjuring that was pretty interesting Who knew Champagne out of all things would provide that kind of inspiration Then it kept me really interested with the change to Medieval Wales This was great for me as CC challenge was really interesting She got rescued and promptly went back to the Sea Thats when it had a bit of a slow down Around the m [...]
