Enjoyable and fun, but felt more like the first in a TV series than a novel.

Plot:
Rollrock Island has always had stories about the magic way to extract beautiful women from seals to marry them. When Misskaela actually makes that magic her own and starts to fulfilling the wishes of the Island's men - for a price, of course - it has many unintended consequences for the entire island.

It has been many years that I read Tender Morsels, Lanagan's only other novel for adult, but the magic atmosphere of that fairy tale retelling still stuck with me. It was also the reason why I waited so long to read this book - I was afraid that it couldn't live up to my memory of Tender Morsels. But I need not have worried: The Brides of Rollrock Island (or Sea Hearts, depending on which edition you find) is a wonderful, feminist tale with its very own incredibly engaging mood.
