This was another book I was really interested in reading after seeing the blurb. I thought it was interesting to see the kind of setting Bridey lived in. It was nice to see her interacting with her family and her friends, Lugh and Cat. While I did think there was a little bit of information dumping in regards to the history between Bridey and her two friends, I did think both of them came across as well-rounded characters with a lot of depth to them.
I really liked seeing Bridey interacting with her family… but I had a lot of sympathy for her as a child, given everything I learned about her and her grandfather. It was good to see the elements of supernatural were a part of the story, but didn’t seem to take over completely.
I didn’t like a lot of the villagers by the end of the book, I have to say. I did feel like a lot of them were lumped together into the same kind of characters and there wasn’t a lot to differentiate between the stereotypical nosy women.
I thought Morag was an interesting character, although I was disappointed not to see much of her actually interacting with Bridey. While I could understand why, it seemed like she spent most of the book hiding away from everyone… including her apprentice.
I did like seeing Bridey’s sisters and how different they were. It was also good to see her relationship with her parents… and I liked that they had different nicknames for each of their daughters. It was interesting to see Bridey’s mother’s paintings and how they related to what was going on with the villagers disappearing.
I liked Fynn’s character, although I did think that his feelings for Bridey and hers for him moved a bit too quickly. I didn’t find much mystery surrounding his presence, as I figured things out fairly quickly. It was, however, interesting to see the different kinds of creatures from the ocean.
I found this book a really entertaining read and I would definitely be interested in reading a sequel to this.
