Early Review: The Sea King by C.L. Wilson

Oct 28, 2017

From the New York Times bestselling author of The Winter King comes a breathtaking new tale of love and adventure set in the mystical land of Mystral...

He wasn't supposed to choose her...

Seafaring prince Dilys Merimydion has been invited to court the three magical princesses of Summerlea. To eradicate the pirates threatening Calberna and to secure the power of the Sea Throne, Dilys vows to return home with a fierce warrior-queen as his bride. But politics has nothing to do with unexpected temptation.

She didn't dare wed him...

A weathermage like her sisters, Gabriella Coruscate's gentleness exemplifies the qualities of her season name, Summer. Yet her quiet poise conceals dangerous powers she cannot begin to wield. Better to live without excitement, she reasons, than risk her heart and lose control— until an irresistible Sealord jolts her awake with a thunderclap of raw desire.

Until evil threatens everything they hold dear...

When pirates kidnap Summer and her sisters, Dilys is in a desperate quest to save the woman he loves. Only by combining his command of the seas with the unleashed fury of Summer's formidable gifts can they defeat their brutal enemies and claim the most priceless victory of all: true love.


Marvelous lore! The Sea King by C. L. Wilson delivers steamy fantasy. Summer and Dilys are very unique characters.  Although I found the ins and out of the courtship to weigh down the story, I found the characters and the plot to be very engaging.  When Summer finally allows Dilys and the Sealords to learn of her powers the story takes on an entirely new vibe. I am captivated by the creativity in Wilson's world.  Such an refreshing romance.  If you are interested seeing more of the world, Wilson has a wonderful map of Mystral on her site. I can't wait to read the next story in the series, The Jaguar King . I have to find out how the sisters survive.
