Deep Magic Deep Magic #1To have any chance of righting past wrongs and rescuing his prince Olly must navigate the truth in his old stories and discover the magic right in front of him But Olly has a powerful enemy on the ​Llŷn an ancient king who would like to end Olly's story telling permanently. I really enjoyed submerging into this story of a young man trying to reclaim his past of merfolk and mythology and a fairy tale feel in a modern setting There's a mystery and plenty of adventure and a slow human merman romance with some fun uirks and a little angst Oliver was always one to make up stories and as an adult he returns to his childhood haunts on the Welsh coast unsure of what he made up and what he really remembers His Nan is gone having left him her solitary home and he's a bit adrift in his life as he tries to decide what to do about her beuest A few cryptic warnings and inexplicable events and that niggling sense of memories he can't uite touch pull him forward into adventure And slowly into loveA tale about the power of story telling and the weight of responsibilities The author creates some beautiful atmospheric descriptions interwoven with the fantasy plot a bit of humor and a solid resolution

I had major doubts about reading this Three hundred pages for a free book Oh come on I was prepared to be disappointed but my god it was beautiful And I don’t mean that in a flowery sunshine y wayLike the photo above depicting our regal sea prince Myrhydion and his noble knight Oliver Evans this book is beautiful but has a haunting uality to it – one which is eerie but not creepy It’s like the book is enveloped by a lilting loneliness which I can’t put my finger on It’s akin to a deafening silence – where the air is thick and your senses are hyperaware The kind of feeling you get when you wake up to be the last person on earth and you don’t feel panicky It’s pronounced and melancholic but not at all overbearing There’s a certain placidness to it that anchors youAnd my god it anchors you well The story draws you in like the song of the morgen It’s slow but steadily building to a crescendo of revelations It’s a gripping story but heartwarming as well There’s a lyrical uality to the way Olly delivers The level of detail and care being given to the Welsh folklore was astounding and it felt believable The same goes to the dialogue and conversations It’s like being warped in an alternate universe where people are speaking in beautiful riddles Many times I got lost in trying to find the meaning behind them But I found out soon enough that to enjoy this book I have to acuiesce and let the story flow for itself To just let my imagination run wild like Olly’sThe girl put her hands in the pockets of her jeans Just because you look like you doesn't mean you're you There are powerful forces out here on the edge of the land Everything's not all it seemsHer perfect composure as she made this extraordinary statement made me grieve Not for Nan this time but for myself – the younger self that had delighted in stories just as this girl didBeautifully spellbinding and captivating PS If that doesn't convince you enough to read this then how do you feel about underwater blowjobs and underwater sex Well that certainly got your attention And I'm not saying anything Grins

S and Olly is torn between the Longing a powerful force driving him away from the only home he has ever known and the growing conviction that the prince of his childhood make believe is real and in need of Olly's helpThere is truth in Olly's stories than he realises If he is. Have you ever watched the movie Big FishIt's hard to tell where make believe ends and real life begins That's Oliver Evans' dilemma As a child he spun so many stories of Knights and Princes witches and fantasy that he can no longer remember what parts of his childhood are real and what are not When Oliver was nine he met a crying boy in a cave To cheer him up he told him the story of how he was a Knight and the boy a Prince They'd have many adventures in the following years until at sixteen they kissed The results of their new relationship would become and all or nothing circumstance which would cost them both dearly Now Oliver travels never spending time in one place long enough to set roots He's overcome with the Longing and travels searching for something and not knowing what When he returns to The Llŷn Peninsula at the age of twenty three after having been gone the past seven years he discovers there's truth behind his fairytales and that now than ever the Llŷn is in need of a Knight And he'll discover that the magic is in believing and that sometimes the unbelieveable can happenWhat this story is is incredible The author took an amazing prompt and not only delivered but created something vivid and magical It's steeped in superstition folklore and rich storytelling The atmosphere is so alive that I felt as if I was there amongst the fog and cliffs I connected with the dialogue and story and was hooked from the first page There wasn't a wasted moment in these 300 pages and I savoured every one of them It's than a story about a love that endured or the Knight rescuing his Prince It's a tale of Kings and water horses the morgen of the deep cunning women and of a beautiful spot of land near the Irish Sea that has a history all it's ownHave I convinced you to read it yet You should because it's as engaging as it is uniueMy thanks to the author for their participation in the Love is an Open Road event
