Book Review: OCEAN'S JUSTICE by Demelza Carlton


Author: Demelza Carlton
Genre: Fantasy Romance
My Star Rating: 5/5

Goodreads Blurb:

Cast adrift on the Indian Ocean, eighteen-year-old Maria is saved by the crew of the steamship Trevessa.
She can't tell them her tragic tale, so the superstitious sailors make up their own stories – and some would sacrifice her to the seas to save themselves from the coming storm.
Scottish engineer William McGregor boarded the Trevessa in search of adventure. He finds a crew convinced their ship is cursed, as he fights to protect the mysterious girl and bring her safely to shore.
When the sharks start circling and the storm closes in, are sirens more than just a myth?

My Review:

 I fell completely in love with this story.  From page one I was hooked, and couldn't stop reading until I found out all about Maria and her back story.  She was such a strong character, which is impressive since she doesn't speak much at all during the book because she doesn't speak English.  It was so fun to witness the "strange" things humans do through the eyes of a siren; every day activities are presented as foreign so convincingly it was incredible.  I can't wait to read the other books in this series.  GREAT job, Demelza.
