Description

World Fantasy Award winner Patricia A. McKillip tells an enchanting fantasy that is tinged with realism and romance. (School Library Journal) Since the day her father's fishing boat returned without him, Peri and her mother have mourned his loss. Her mother sinks into a deep depression and spends her days gazing out at the sea. Unable to control her anger and sadness any longer, Peri uses the small magic she knows to hex the sea. And suddenly into her drab life come the King's sons--changelings with strange ties to the underwater kingdom--a young magician, and, finally, love. McKillip is a master storyteller; her tale rings true as if it were being told from memory.--Kirkus Reviews, pointer review

Review quote

McKillip is a master storyteller; her tale rings true as if it were being told from memory.--Kirkus Reviews, pointer review Beautifully sustained metaphors and an even tone make this fantasy, like McKillip's The Forgotten Beasts of Eld, a pleasure to read. Further, McKillip's deft characterization and smooth, tender resolution result in a memorable, often poignant novel.--Publishers Weekly With a touch of romance, Patricia McKillip weaves an enchanting tale that will especially appeal to young ladies, ages ten to thirteen. The author captures a world that lies somewhere between reality and fantasy. She also puts a new twist on the old adage that true love conquers all.--Children's Literature An enchanting fantasy that is tinged with realism and romance . . . Rewarding and engaging.--School Library Journal
