On trial for the attempted murder of her sister’s true love King Neptune’s youngest daughter, Nadine doesn’t have a lot of options left. Her salvation comes in the form of Oceanus the Grand Inquisitor who looks every one of his 900 years. Oceanus offers Nadine marriage to save her life.

Oceanus has been cursed by a Sea Hag for scorning her love and as punishment is given the appearance of a very old man. Oceanus’s only hope for redemption is the kiss of his true love. Can Nadine ever fall for one such as he and break the spell? Or is Oceanus doomed to remain bound to the sea hag?

At first glance this is an interesting story. It portrays a completely different world under the sea with its own hierarchies and laws and has all the details necessary to immerse the reader in the author’s world. What’s off putting in the beginning of the story is the attitude of the heroine. However, I struggled through the initial dislike of her and eventually she became a character I enjoyed. Oceanus is a noble hero from the beginning, especially in his willingness to take on Nadine. The terms of his curse makes his sacrifices even more touching. The pacing of the story is at times a little slow but overall I consider this a good read. If you enjoy fairy tales this one is for you. Beauty and the Beast and the Little Mermaid all rolled into one with a few twists thrown in for good measure. This is the second in Nancy O’Berry’s Neptune’s Daughters series and having not read the first of the series I’m interested in to how that would have changed my reading of this story but overall this book also works as a stand alone.
