Goddess of the Sea by P.C. Cast

Goddess of the Sea starts out in the modern world, as Christine (CC) gets on a plane to her latest military assignment. Her plane crashes into the ocean and she trades places with a mermaid Princess (Undine). She is put back into a medieval world, where mermaids are considered demons and women are treated as property. In order to escape her brother, she is granted human form on a temporary basis but finds true love in sea as well as some dangers on land.

I loved the cover of this book. I loved the House of Night series also by the same author so I decided to give this one a try. It was a hard book for me to really get into it. I enjoyed Christine's character and how she is a strong woman in times when women had no say. Romance stories are my thing. I'll read just about any of them. I also love the mythical and unexplained. But a mermaid romance just was so hard to really believe and connect with. Don't get me wrong. Love mermaids. They are beautiful and mysterious (unlike the Harry Potter mermaids who are anything but). But this romance just didn't do it for me.
