WITHIN THE MISTS
Rating: 4 Cups
Lieutenant Edward Putney, of His Majesty’s Royal Navy, has been out to sea fighting wars for three years and is ready to go home. After a stormy shipwreck, he wonders if he will ever find his way back to the Navy after being rescued by a mystery woman.
Sioned is a selchie, a human on land and a seal in the sea. She has spent years mourning and enjoys watching the sea. Her aunt believes she has wasted too many years being lonely, and it is time to share her house and bed with another.
Edward is used to giving orders and having them obeyed, but after a storm leaves him shipwrecked, with a head wound, he is saved by a lovely woman, and practically under her commands. Sioned takes care of him after his rescue. She feels drawn to this human, but Edward is eager to return to his ship. Sioned has a feeling Edward can help erase her loneliness. He is different, and Sioned wishes him to stay while Edward is torn for the new hope he has found in Sioned and for his duty to the King with the navy.
Within the Mist is a delightful read. There were so many different events that I could practically visualize all the episodes that accompany Edward and Sioned. The incident with Edward, and the water, was awesome after the shipwreck. I could almost felt the icy cold the way Nia Little describes everything. I thought the storyline with Sioned not being a complete human was a nice twist. Sioned and Edward are refreshing and both are searching for something to give them meaning in life. I like the way Ms. Little allows their love to be different. She pens an incredible ending that was quite an eye-opener.
