Fire of the Sea Virtual Book Tour!

Hello Everyone! Today I will be hosting the Fire of the Sea Virtual Book Tour presented by Sage's Blog Tours. Check below for my review of this lovely book and a book trailer!

Fire of the Sea 
By Lyndsay Johnson
Published by 48fourteenPublishing
426 pages

5 stars - Enchanting novel!

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 Meriads. 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 legends 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 is an enchanting read! One of my favorite things to read about is mythology and the way it was written in this book was fantastic. The mythology in this novel was compelling and I love the way it was told. There was so much to learn about Meriads and the rest of the creatures that live above and below sea. 

Aeva was a great female lead and I loved the way she was written. The words kept me hooked and I didn't want to stop reading. Aeva definitely grows as a character throughout the book. She starts off as a young sheltered meriad but becomes strong and independent. She has to go through quite a few challenges throughout the book but Aeva had many friends that supported her. Her friends definitely felt genuine. Gunnar was interesting as well and the relationship between the two of them was enjoyable to read.

I haven't read much about mermaids or any of the creatures of the sea but I enjoyed reading about them in this book. Like I said before, it was enchanting. The words flowed easily and the book was difficult to put down, especially near the end. There were some surprises but the ending wrapped up nicely. Fire of the Sea is a book that I recommend you check out because you won't want to miss it! Intriguing and Compelling! 

I had some difficulties with putting the book trailer up so check it out on Lyndsay's author website for now!


About the Author:

Lyndsay 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 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 Stephenie Meyer, 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 the seed of 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.
