    One thought on “Water Shaper

    1. Laurie

      Fantastic YA book - big twist and unexpected emotional depth. And the author lives here in central Vermont. One of my favorites.

      This makes no sense bc if you had pure, distilled water in your blood it would make your cells swell up and burst and then you'd die because they wouldn't be able to carry oxygen to your body parts and stuff. .-.HYPOTONIC SOLUTION. SCIENCE.

    3. L.Y. Levand

      This book is rather short. It only took me one day to read all the way through it. But it's unique, at least to me, and I really enjoyed it. The main character, Margot, doesn't belong in the place she was born. She has no real friends, although she has a stepmother that doesn't mesh with the usual fairytale evil stepmother. This woman helps Margot to escape. Margot goes with a king who's visiting from his home by the sea, and tells her she's one of the few who has 'water in her blood.' On the wa [...]

      Margot has “water in her blood” a by-product of her deceased mother’s heritage, yet she dwells with her King father and other “land dwellers”. They shun her for her strange appearance and her strange ways, which she’s learned to hide from them (like her affinity for water and the strange, magical book that she found after her mom died). So, when holy man Orrin comes into the land and is appalled at the people’s treatment of Margot, she eats up his attention, falls in love and runs [...]

      Margot, King’s daughter, has never been accepted by her people. She has power and insight into water and its creatures through a strange book that was passed down to her from her mother, and her blood is believed to be tainted. The King’s new wife introduces Margot to King Orrin, a powerful holy man and magician - they fall in love and Orrin helps her escape. When they return to his lands, suddenly Margot’s strangeness is valued – she’s useful and people come to seek her advice regular [...]

      This book was okay. I know that's rather benign praise when usually I'm exuberant about the books I read but it was just okay. A good read but nothing stellar, nothing moving, nothing to make me close the last page and sigh with happiness or longing. I really felt it wrapped up too quickly or perhaps it needed a sequel I was three quarters of the way through the book thinking, "No way can they finish this with the number of pages left!" yet they did, or rather she did. It felt rushed. It felt li [...]

      This book has good bones, but it just wasn't fleshed out as well as it could have been. The basic characters, plot, originality and concepts were all there. The writing was just a bit boring?dull?spare? I'm not quite sure. The richness of language and depth of emotion just wasn't there. The author also touches the edges of so many deeply profound issues. Magic vs. holiness. Male vs. female. Water vs. land. I almost want to ask the author to go back and try again because there is so much potentia [...]

    9. Lisa Rector

      This was an enchanting read. The author really wove a beautiful work, taking aspects of real folklore. The main character is realistic and indecisive in her thoughts. She feels as if she belongs nowhere. She can't trust others because her whole life she's been harassed and belittled. But she has an inner fight. The magic brings a real element of curiosity. I wanted to learn more the whole story. I couldn't wait to see it's secrets unfold. The book is just so amazing. A real tale told by a master [...]

      Hmmm interesting. A bit old-school, Hans Christian Anderson style. Interesting and frustrating all at once. I can't imagine where it's going to go, and it will need to go somewhere because the ending isn't conclusive. However, it did keep me interested, and I would read a follow-up to decide for sure how much I liked it. For me, it's just hard to determine if I like the story if I don't have the whole story. I loved some parts, the style, the method, the way of writing. And then I would get frus [...]

      Margot lives in a country of people suspicious of her. She doesn't know why, but the kingdom her mother came from, by the sea, is calling to her. Margot intends to go, and figure out the Book of the Sea, a magic book left to her by her mother. According to the men, women aren't supposed to use magic, but Margot isn't going to let that stop her. What she doesn't know is that the king of this new country is trying to find out the same things, and he plans to do anything to get that book

    12. Joyce

      Not usually a fantasy lover, but met this author. All the elements I love: Celtic folklore, the sea, a love story. Wonderfully crafted.

    13. Debs

      A young adult fantasy novel. Nothing special, but unique in that there isn’t really a love interest at all, instead the focus is on the completely independent female lead character.

    14. Kenzie

      The reason I didn't enjoy this book as much was because in the end, it didn't really wrap up very well, it kind of left you hanging there, waiting for a sequel that doesn't seem to be coming.

    15. Julia

      This was a good book. Different from what I'm used to reading. It had loneliness, happiness, love, heartbreak, travel, adventure, disappointment and more! I wish there were a book 2.

    16. Sarah

      An enjoyable little book, with references to the Celtic selkie legends. It has a strong female protagonist and some nicely-rounded characters, which is a relief after enduring so much Twilight furor.

      It was pretty good. The only issue, I thought, was that the writer rushed through the plot. Otherwise, I liked it.
