Review- Fire of the Sea by Lyndsay Johnson

Title:  Fire of the Sea
Author:  Lyndsay Johnson

Genres: Fantasy, Mythology, Young Adult
Publication Date: March 24th 2014 by 48fourteen Publishing

Plot:   Sharp, sleek, and golden. Like the dagger she has worn since childhood, eighteen-year-old Aeva is all three of these things. But there is something else that this mermaid and her prized weapon share – they are both hunted. 

Hidden within the caves off Iceland’s dark shore, Aeva waits to take her place as the next ruler of the Mermaids. But when Aeva uses her potent and alluring song to save a drowning human, she disrupts a delicate balance. Realizing she has unexpectedly bound herself to Gunnar, Aeva is torn between duty and love. 

Aeva severs one life to begin another, and soon finds herself not only rejected by the sea, but also stalked by an old enemy. As the worlds of myth and man intertwine, Aeva will challenge fate to protect her own sacred relic and the man she loves. 

But legend and lies cast an intricate net. With time and safety quickly unraveling for Aeva and Gunnar, there is only one clear course: Find and defeat Delphine before she can shift again.

Fire of the Sea Inspiration for blog

As a young girl, Aeva finds herself not only alone, but also the future ruler of the Meriads.

With a tragic attack that claimed the lives of both of her parents, ten years pass, and now 18-year old Aeva finds herself having to make some truly hard decisions that lay course for not only her life, the balance between the land and sea, but also the future of her people.

Love, honor, duty. What would you choose?


And when an old evil arises, how will she survive this entity once more?

Loved this tale and its integration of taking risks, making choices and being the person you were born to be! As well as themes of romance, mythology and folklore!

 About the Author 


LYNDSAY JOHNSON grew up in the wide expanses of Texas, where the only thing stronger than the accents was the state pride. An over-active imagination, tale-telling father, and an encouraging librarian mother lead to her love of all things creative.

When it comes to books on her bedside table, young adult lit has always been a favorite (Blue Balliett, Libba Bray, and JK Rowling, to name a few). But it was actually an old, yellowing copy of Scandinavian Folk and Fairy Tales that planted a particularly relentless seed. Shapeshifters and sea nymphs began forming an idea that would eventually grow into Lyndsay’s debut novel, Fire of the Sea.

When she is not writing, you can find Lyndsay spending time with her family in the Rocky Mountains of Utah. She enjoys sitting in dark ¬theaters, trying new gluten-free recipes, watching breaking storms over the peaks out her window,
and secret naps.
