Sselan: A Gift from the Sea by Silver Valkyre

#gypsyshadow #checkeditout #fantasy

Taya is a bardess who lives beside the sea, singing to the lonely sailors and townspeople of the seaside village she calls home. Into her life comes a strange and beautiful man, a handsome, wonderful individual who is also one of the sea people - the Selkies - shapeshifters of legend. When the Selkies transform from their seal form to human form, they remove and store a beautiful pelt. Legend has it that the freedom of a Selkie can be taken by any who find their pelt and bind them to land. Taya finds in her lover an unmatched passion for love and life, a passion which becomes the source of fear and despair for her with the birth of their son, Sselan, her gift from the sea.
