    1. I can't say enough good things about this book! Adrift is the first book in The Last Selkie series and promises to deliver with each new installment. Adrift introduces us to Meg. Meg was raised by her father after losing her mother to a drowning accident when Meg was 16 months old. Now, at 20 years old, her father suddenly dies, leaving her with nothing. Once she finds a home for her Shetland, Coal, Meg leaves the only home she's ever known with no destination in mind except the direction her ca [...]


    2. I was lucky enough to win a copy of Adrift in a First Reads Giveaway.Initially, I was going to rate this story 4 stars; with a bit of thought, I couldn't see any reason not to give it the full five - this sweet story left me with a contented smile on my face and a yearning to read the next installment!For a short book, it was a large book; it was spaced well with a decent sized easy-read font. I have never felt the need to comment on such before, but I found this to be so much easier on the eye [...]


    3. i won the book on good reads, and when i got it home from the post i was not able to put it down. i loved the story, charecters and the entire premise of the story. i can not wait for the sequil. i highly recomend this novel.


    4. Adrift (The Last Selkie, Book One) by Elizabeth A. ReevesDisclaimer: I received a free e-copy of this book one , then decided to review it. Warning: There are spoilers and hints of spoilers in this review.Meg is left bereft and alone when her father dies of cancer. After giving away or selling everything of value, she gets in a car and heads in random direction. After driving until she’s out of money, she finds herself in Newfoundland, on the coast. The sea calls to her, and Meg gives herself [...]


    5. This is a magical world that Elizabeth Reeves makes up to bring us an enchanting story of life and love. As I got drawn into this enchanting story the movie called 'The Last Unicorn' popped into my head. No this story is not about unicorns but it is about Meg and her super natural dreams which consist of mermaids and sidhe. Where did she really come from? Where are her parents from? She meets Devon who is in charge of keeping the gates of Trinity closed to keep the super natural beings and human [...]


    6. I picked up this book because I read several teasers for it and they were very intriguing. I'm glad I did! What a fun read! Meg's story pulls you in from page one and doesn't let go until you finish. It is beautifully written and makes you want to visit Newfoundland. The characters are very likeable and you grow to care for them quickly. The story shares some loose similarities with the Twilight series: YA fantasy/sci-fi/romance, supernatural beings, a beautiful nineteen year old brunette torn b [...]


    7. What Can I say about Adrift. I'm torn between 3.5 and 4 stars. Simply because I thought it was kinda abrupt. I fell in love with the main characters very easily, and was intrigued by the odd romance. I like how Elizabeth Reeves depicted the scenery, and how it had that old time feel to it. Definitely a breath of fresh air, from my normal reads. I'm so glad that I won this on ! I might have never picked up such a gem, otherwise. What do you do when you have nowhere to go? You get in your car and [...]


    8. Meg was all alone in the world after her father passed away. Their farm and every possession had to be sold to pay for his medical costs. With only a beat up old car to her name, she started driving from Missouri, finally ending up in a town called Trinity in Newfoundland. With no money and nowhere to go, she jumps into the sea and thinks she's dieduntil waking up in a cottage with a few surprises. Found by a man walking his dog, he brings her to his mother's cottage where she can stay and help [...]


    9. This book instantly drew me in. The emotion was written very well in the opening scene. The imagery was crisp throughout the book, and there were times when I honestly felt like I was at sea.This book has all the right structural elements. The plot was great! It really felt original! I love how Ms. Reeves entwined Devin and Meg’s lives together. It’s a whole lot more than just boy meets girl! This boy has a heavy weight of responsibility, and a really huge failure with grim consequences ridi [...]


    10. This novel was an art of fantasy, suspense, romance, plus, cleanly written. This is great reading for YA as for Adults. It arouses a sensuality, yet, with ministrant strong morals.Left alone after the death of her father, a young woman finds herself broke and traveling away from her home, not knowing where she is going nor where she will end up. The last of her money spent, she is on a ferry in Canada heading toward a place she has never heard of . The ocean seems to be calling to her but she do [...]


    11. I have been waiting around a year to finally read this book, because I am working on a selkie book of my own and was afraid that if I read too much of another's work that it would color my writing.I am glad that I finally gave in and finally opened the book. The process of gaining a sealskin in Reeves' story is very very different than the way that I am writing about it. Due to that I was able to just enjoy the story. The mother in this book also has me fascinated. I now get to kick myself for h [...]


    12. I was really intrigued by the background of the main character. I'd love to read the rest of the series, just to find out what happens to her! I felt sorry for Devin. :( Great read though!


    13. Love the Author, not this bookI wanted to like this book. I have loved every other series and book by Reeves. This was just, not good. It was SO slow. It dragged and yet also was choppy. Devin was a pain from the beginning. I never found anything to root for in him. The heroine was whiny. I get conflicted, but she was wishy washy. The book should get 1 star. But I gave it 2 because I love the author


    14. Great read. Was a great book to just zone out with Enjoyed and looking forward to the next one. I've always loved a good sea creature lore story.


    15. I quite enjoyed Adrift. It's kind of slow and not much happens until the end, but I liked it. Meg has just lost her father, and has nothing keeping her in her home town. After selling everything off, including her beloved pony, Meg gets into her car and just drives. She has no idea where she's going, or where she'll up. She just goes and winds up on a beach in Newfoundland. She has no idea how she got there or where she is exactly, so she's lucky that Devin finds her and brings her to his mother [...]


    16. YA pleaser indeed.This is definitely a YA book, no bones about it. I was half through and called upon an eighteen year old to assist me with the book. Maybe I'm too old to grasp the concept or too set in my ways to be wrapped-up in the essence of the book.The concept is interesting. After the death of her father and the loss of the family farm, our young Heroin Megan is drawn to a small seaside town: Trinity, Newfoundland. She doesn't understand why she is drawn to the sea, but she can't deny it [...]


    17. I really enjoyed this book. I downloaded this for free from several years ago and read it for the first time this past week. The story centers around Meg whose father has just died. She sells off everything that has value and drives in her car free style. She ends up off the tip of Canadahonestly, I've never heard of this place. I liked the characters in this book. They were interesting to me. I thought it was interesting that Devin, the love interest, was described as homely. This isn't very c [...]


    18. Adrift by Elizabeth A Reeves4 StarsAfter her fathers sudden death, Megan is forced to sell all her belongings and move away. She has no idea where to go, but is, for some reason, drawn to the sea. After travelling for days, only eating when she becomes shaky and sleeping when she can no longer keep her eyes open, she finds herself in a small town called Trinity. A dip in the ocean leads Meg to Devin and his mother, and soon we find out what the pull of the water really means for her.Adrift is a [...]


    19. It's a shame that the prose resembles a bad cross between "Fifty Shades of Grey" and a teenage girl's ennui overloaded diary. Abuse of the word "literally" made my temper flare, not to mention bad metaphors, incorrect spelling, and an annoying habit to use ellipses. Like thislots of ellipsesybe to indicate conversation lullsor time for readers to stop and read something else. This work feels more like an outline of a planned book, or even a novella, rather than a true book. Fleshing it out would [...]


    20. A Very Original Selkie Story :)This series must be read in order. The first book is Avow. This is the second book. You should read Avow (A Last Selkie Short Story Prequel) first as it is the true backstory of this series :) I really loved this book a lot the characters were unique and believable and the plot was very original. I really loved how all the characters were conflicted at their cores and their interactions were colored by their own internal issues. This story was very multidimensional [...]


    21. i won this book in a giveaway.ive never read a book in this genre so i didnt know what to expect was an interesting story. just not for me. i think its geared more for the younger generation teens/ya.


    22. This was a definite four star book until right at the end when the suddenness and abruptness of the ending marred the enjoyment completely.I really got into this sweet story and loved the characters, particularly the warmth of Maura. And the animals!


    23. Loved this one but so sad to see it end and it left me looking to swiftly read the next one, not sure if it is out yet. Will snatch it up as soon as it is.


    24. I really enjoyed this book. With its nautical Newfoundland setting and Celtic mythology within, it stands out among other fantasy books as a great one.
