Eliza Tilton presents the third book of the Shifting Fae Series in The Eternal Sea. Havanna wants to go to the Oasis before she settles down and marries. She buys a ride on the only boat leaving the docks. Captain Leon catches her off guard when she learns he is a Dark Fae. She feels drawn to him instead of being frightened of him. However, Havanna has a secret that jeopardizes the safety of everyone on the boat and Oasis. Captain Leon convinces her to allow him to escort her around the island because he knows there is something different about her. After two days of enjoyment on the beautiful island, Havanna’s secret reveals itself. Will she lose her freedom and love interest?
Eliza Tilton painted the setting of the story beautifully. I could imagine the Oasis with the mermaids and playful pixies. I found Havanna’s distress at lodging in a brothel funny. Her interaction with Azalea was necessary to teach her a lesson in humility. I believe they spoiled her before she ran off, and there were moments when I hoped somebody would teach her that she was not invincible. Captain Leon was an especially loyal character, and I liked the way he treated his crew as a family. My favorite moments were the interactions with the pixies and mermaids. I could imagine playing in the water and letting the pixies braid my hair. The action and details were well-balanced and I found the dialogue engaging and easy to follow. The end of the story was nothing like I expected and the entire book was unpredictable. I recommend The Eternal Sea to readers who love fantasy stories set in a beautiful paradise with a well-developed cast of characters.
