I liked the Fallen Angel Lara Rho's back ground and the fact that there is a society of fallen angels out there with different powers etc... However, what I didn't understand is why Justin took so long to find his people after the ship wreck. I don't think the connection between Lara and Justin was justified correctly. I mean sure they made out and had the hots for each other but with them being on the run it was like their getting to know one another and spend quality time with each other was short lived and then all of a sudden they were in love. I kept waiting for the Fallen Angel Group to come together and help Justin and the other Selkies but that never happened. Honestly I love Virginia Kantra's writing but this book was just average for me, I didn't hate it but wasn't madly in love in awe with it either like I was with the other books. Even the prior characters from the other books missed their connection in this story, it was like they were strangers until the end, I think Con should of been the one searching and finding Justin or even rescuing him. It would be interesting though now to see if the Author will continue the Children of the Sea series or start a spin off from it to introduce these new Fallen Angels with all their powers. Regardless, I'm still a big fan of Virginia Kantra.

There's just one problem...he's no angel. Justin was a man with ties to nobody or nothing but the sea. He remembered nothing of his life before seven years ago. Happy with his drifter lifestyle he didn't plan on spending more than a night with Lara when she picks him up down at the docks. However, an impulsive action on his part starts them on an unexpected journey to discover his past. Along the way their passion ignites with only a spark. I find myself having the hardest time deciding on how to rate this book. It was a good book with all the elements necessary that make a great PNR. It just didn't do it for me. I'm not sure why. I liked it but it was just OK in my opinion. I think it was me though. The cover is great and the storyline of children of the sea isn't overdone. There aren't a lot of Selkie/Merfolk books out there, not like vampires and shifters. There was some heat to it and the love scenes were well written. Like I said, it had all the necessary parts...I think I'll have to give it a four because I know it was a good book. My radar must just be off... Favorite line Sometimes you didn't need words and guarantees. Sometimes one look said everything and an act, one gesture of faith, was enough.

How would the series end and, more important, would I be satisfied? Well, let's just say that I thought this was an all new characters story until a surprise twist tied it right in and gave a story that I didn't even realize that I was missing. Forgotten Sea is the fifth of the Children of the Sea stories and it definitely doesn't make for a good standalone for the ties to several threads in the story to make sense. Lara Rho is a Nephilim, a fall angel or air elemental. She was rescued by another fallen angel and given refuge in his well-warded school where fallen angels and half-angels of their kind are brought for protection and training. Laura trained as a Seeker, one who goes out and finds these that are in danger from the demon, children of fire, and need to be brought in. On her first assignment, she is drawn to a beautiful carefree sailor, Justin Miller, who turns out to be... well not an angel. He's fascinating and nothing like those back at her home where following the rules and trying to achieve higher knowledge is more important than free choice and following the heart. Justin thought he was human and remembers nothing before seven years previously when he was rescued from a shipwreck as the only survivor, but now he's expected to believe that he's not human and Lara is a real angel. Of course, the fire demon attack and the surge of power in him proves her right and they end up on quite the adventure trying to get him some answers. Meanwhile, he holds Laura at arm's length because he doesn't believe he has it in him to do a long-term relationship. It was great to get a story that involved the air elementals and learning about them after the earlier books mentioned them as one of the four elemental races. I also enjoyed learning the twist on Justin's life and the situation for Lucy and Conn. The fire elementals and some others make things get pretty exciting for Lara and Justin. They have a romance on the run even though both are in denial and don't think it will work and, until they get all the answers, this is pretty much true. But, as much as I liked this one and devoured it quickly, I felt it was sadly under-developed. If this is was meant to be the last book in the series, let's just say it was a fail. Too much was left up in the air for the series story arcs. But, I got the feeling it was meant to be a longer series and, for whatever reason, was stopped suddenly. So, I'll just wish that maybe nearly a decade later, we can get another one. Unfortunately, that was not the only under-developed part. This romance, and I do mean talk of love and forever, took place in three days. And, right up until the last of the third day, there was little more than sexual attraction between them unless you count mutual life saving and sharing backgrounds with assurances that neither wanted long term. Don't get me wrong, I wasn't opposed to them being together and wanted that, but I just wasn't feeling it based on what was there. This story had a lot going on between the previous plot threads carrying over, the introduction of the Nephilim, ongoing demon threats, the romance, and facing up to their pasts. For example, Lucy and Conn loose their baby and their relationship is drifting apart. It gets maybe a total of three or four pages when this is a major thing that seems to be mentioned in passing. All the threads tugging at the whole made for each thread to get stretched thin on development. So, while I could get on board with the characters, their situations, and the action element, I really needed to see a great deal more development and a little more evidence or time for a true romance to develop. Just too much and needed more pages. I'm saddened that I had to feel like this for the last book that has been published in this series. I still think the series is well worth other paranormal romance fans to pick up especially if they like spicy hot romance and a unique worldbuilding with great characters.

The school has been a haven for her after she fell and was violated. She thinks she has found one of them but can't be sure. The guy is Justin and is working on a boat, she invites him for a drink but when she touches him she realizes she was wrong. She leaves him but outside she and her partner are attacked by demons and Justin comes to rescue and is injured. Lara takes him to the school knowing that she is breaking the rules. I found the Guardians irritating and not at all good, at first Lara was still that girl, who listened to people at higher position than her but then she rebels, she gives him a knife and when he escapes and comes to her door to tell her to help him she does. Justin doesn't know his past. He only remembers that past seven years and only the sea makes him comfortable. He doesn't believe Lara's talk of magic and more at first but being in contact with her brings back his memories, that he is Iestyn, a child of the sea, but he is not sure he can go back since he thinks everything was lost seven years before. They escape outrunning demons. Lara has a problem with sex but with Justin she feels comfortable. The book was enjoyable, nothing that great but not bad as well. (view spoiler)[My one problem with the series is that it instead of painting a rosy picture as is the case in romance it doesn't(the characters we meet in novellas of this series die and the heroes are not very heroic, maybe it is because they are not human but still). (hide spoiler)] Iestyn has been the best hero I think.

    I liked this one as much as the others. Got to meet another group of elementals; the fallen Children of Air. I enjoyed getting a glimpse of several prior characters. My only issue: It didn't feel like a last book. Yes, some things were resolved (Justin/Iestyn) gets his memory back/reunites with his family. *But* the underlying story from all 5 books (the war with the Children of Fire/Demons) is not resolved.

Lara’s kiss- soft lips, warm breath, her life, her strength, in him- had ripped through him with the force of a tornado, churning him to the depths. he floundered in a sea of memory and desire, at the mercy of his dreams, a plaything of the waves, a prisoner of his own mind” Justin has no memory of his past except for the last seven years of his life. All he knows is that is he is most at home when by the sea so he makes a living working on boats and traveling the world never quite fitting in and always feeling as if something is missing. Out of the blue Lara Rho approaches him asking for a date. Little does he know that she can help him discover all that he has forgotten. Lara Rho is a fallen angel, a Nephilim and a Seeker for the children of air. As a Seeker it is her job to find other children of air before they are found and destroyed by children of fire. The children of air strive for the perfection that they had before they fell and follow the very strict Rule of their Guardians. Those who choose to not follow the Rule become flyers and live on their own hiding from demons and the Guardians. Lara has always followed the Rule and strives to be a strong Seeker for her people. One night she has a dream that leads her to Norfolk, Virginia and to Justin who might be a Nephilim. This chance meeting changes everything Lara knows and sends her and Justin on a journey to find out just exactly who or what he is. I was very excited when I got this book a read what it was about because I had just told a girlfriend I wanted to read a book about mermaids but I’m getting a head of myself. “Forgotten by Sea” was is the first book I’ve read by Virginia Kantra and I plan on reading the rest of the books in her Children of the Sea stories. Since I hadn’t read any of the previous books in the series it took me a couple of chapters to really figure out exactly what was going on especially since I was expecting the book to be about merepeople and it started with fallen angles. From what I could gather this was a much different setting from the other books in the series. I liked this book a lot and was so happy with the last two-thirds of it. The first third of the book takes place with Lara finding Justin only to discover he is Other and then having to bring him to the Nephilim’s compound called Rockhaven. At Rockhaven we meet the other Nephilim and the Guardians. I disliked every single Guardian so much so that if the entire book had taken place at Rockhaven I wouldn’t have finished it. I understand the need for the story to go to Rockhaven so Lara and Justin could run off together and start their journey but I just felt like there was no explanation to why almost all the Nephilim were complete jerks. I felt like there were a lot of things in the story that could have been explained more and I still have questions about some parts of the story that I don’t think would be answered of I read the earlier books. After Lara and Justin escape Rockhaven and set off to find out who Justin really is the story gets much better. I really liked Justin or Isetyn as he wants to be called when his memories start coming back. I liked that he gradually started to remember his past and isn’t just hit over the head and wakes up remembering everything. The romance that develops between Lara and Isetyn is very cute and sweet. The chemistry between makes for some very steamy chapters and also some very touching moments. I think I actually said “Aaaahhhh” out loud once or twice. I was kinda hoping to get to know the characters a little better then I did. I feel because more of the focus is on Isrtyn we get more of his back story and get a better understanding of who he is and who he was. With Lara it’s vaguely described how and why she fell from Heaven, that she was abused in some sort of way as a child after she fell, and for some reason which we are never told why, the leader of Rockhaven, Simon, wants her. I really felt that I would have liked the story, and especially Lara, if I could have had answers to these events and people. I gave this book 3 out of 5 because I liked the story but I didn’t LOVE it. I felt that a lot of the plot could have been done with more detail and much more backgound information. I felt like we were giving an outer layer of the characters and the plot and I wanted to know so much more then I was told. I did really enjoy the scenes with the other children of the sea and I really love the idea of the finfolk and the merefolk.The romance between Lara and Iestyn is very well written and will keep you turning the page. I am defiantly going to read the rest of the books in this series but I think “Forgotten Sea” could defiantly be read on it’s own with no problem. Good book to what I hope is a great series.

She was ‘saved’ by one of her kind and brought to a school that shelters air elementals like herself. Now she is grown up and on an important mission as a Seeker, which is to find unsuspecting air elementals like herself and take them to her school and safety, too. When she finds the young and handsome, Justin, she senses his magic but soon realizes that he is not one of her kind. But what is he? When their combined magic sparks and draws vicious demons like a beacon, Justin saves her but is injured in the process. Lara can’t help feeling concern for him and risks her status to take him with her to her school. It doesn’t help that Justin has no memory of his early life. But there are those at the school who are not all altruistic and a power struggle puts Justin’s life in danger. Soon Lara will have to make a choice between a life of security or a life filled with passion and laughter. This was a delightful romance with two very likeable young characters that are lost and trying to find their own way. The author puts them on a journey that challenges them and forces them to push their limits but also allows them to grow in self-assurance. Especially Lara, who is constantly pushed outside of her comfort zone. I liked reading her surprise at being able to do much more than she thinks. I was so happy that they had each found a person who loves them despite their flaws and insecurities. Both main characters are fragile and trying to find meaning in their lives - Justin is trying to unravel his past and Lara is discovering if her life of safety may actually be a self-imposed prison. Both characters take risks and make themselves vulnerable. As both of them gain love, confidence and unsuspected friends in their journey of discovery, this book makes for engrossing reading.

    There are two separate yet connected story lines at play. The children of the sea (selkies) have been attacked by the children of fire (demons) and the three youngest selkie children have been set adrift at sea to protect them while the elders fight.

Unfortunately the boat sank and apparently the only survivor was Iestyn though he lost his memories of anything that happened before the wreck. He now goes by the name Justin Miller and has been kidnapped by the children of the air (fallen angels). Fallen angel Lara Rho has "seeked" out Justin because his energy called to her but she doesn't know what he is anymore than he does. During a fight with demons, Justin is severely injured and compassionate Lara brings him back to Rockhaven School (the angels sanctuary) for medical assistance. Unfortunately the headmaster, Simon Axton doesn't trust Justin and locks him in the cellar using magical means. When Justin escapes with Lara, the hunt is on. The headmaster's henchman is searching for Lara and the selkies are searching for Justin. This is a great addition to the series. Iestyn is a lovable character who starts out only thinking of himself (he is alone after all) but morphs into a well-rounded caring man. Lara is one of those people who fall instantly in love since being an angel she can immediately tell if someone is good or evil. I enjoyed the romance between them as well as the suspense of who was going to find them first, his people or hers. Very enjoyable.

The question pried at his brain like an oyster knife, slipping through his weakened defenses, threatening to rip him open, to plunder the soft gray flesh inside. There are some authors that write so beautifully and thoroughly that I find myself sucked into the world, lost for better or worse with the characters. Ms. Kantra is one of those authors. I greedily swipe up everything she writes, and anyone who loves romance and good story telling should do the same.

    VK is one of those authors who is hit or miss for me. This 5th entry had the potential to take the series in a new and different direction, but it never quite got there. First of all, there were too many characters in a story that should have been more focused on the H/h. The book also hints at other plots involving past characters but without the follow through I would have liked to completely "get" where Kantra is going. I also didn't feel like our H/h were meant to be together, and even the e VK is one of those authors who is hit or miss for me.

Sad to say, I am done with this series. 1.5 stars/D+

    This is the fifth book in the series of the Children of the Sea. As with the others they can be read alone. Although I highly recommend reading the series. I loved these books and was not happy that Virginia didn't continue. When I get to see her, I am going to try and talk her into adding more books.

    This was great. I'm so happy to see the characters all back together again. Now all we need is to find some of the other Children of the Sea and we'll be set! I hope we win the war! This was really well done. I'm so happy to see Ieystan (spelling is probably wrong on that) and I love Lara. What a wonderful couple. I loved seeing everyone back in Land's End and I hope the next one comes out sooner! This was great. I'm so happy to see the characters all back together again.

    I have to give this one only 3 stars because the ending disappointed me. The entire book was building to a big confrontation scene at the end. I was really looking forward to it, and it...fizzled. I even turned the page looking for more, thinking that maybe it was all just ploy and there would be more - a quick snatch and grab, an ambush from behind, at least maybe a comment that there would be more coming later. But, nothing. It was another quick I-need-to-end-the-book-now ending.

    I really enjoyed this, especially the blend of paranormal character types (demons,angels,selkie, mer-people) and the real heat between the hero and the heroine. And I liked them both as well. It's rare to read a paranormal where one isn't constantly rescuing or saving the other, but both Lara and Justin (Iesten) were a team. If you're a fan of paranormal romance, on the steamier side :), I'd totally recommend this for your reading pleasure!

    How I missed this series. After the events in the third book, I always wondered what became of the lost children. I wish there had been a little more for the original characters to do, instead of having what felt like a small cameo, but I was still happy to see how they were all doing. And I enjoyed finally getting to see what the children of the air were like.

    I could not for anything find the book before this one so I started reading this book. I am kind of disappointed in how it rushed in the end almost like the author said "I have to finish this now!". The characters are not memorable and the storyline is pretty bland. I'm just happy that I have finished the series. I could not for anything find the book before this one so I started reading this book.

    Yay! Finally Iestyn's story! Been wondering what happened to him after he was forced to leave Sanctuary in the little boat. Definitely not disappointed. His story is wonderful. Yay!

    I really enjoyed this installment in the series, it was very different from the previous books, however it has opened up the series for many possibilities in the future!

    A very slow start, and I thought there were some unresolved aspects with her "school," but overall a good continuation of the series. A very slow start, and I thought there were some unresolved aspects with her "school," but overall a good continuation of the series.
