    Fascinating mythology, Virginia and one I have no problem believing. I think it must be my Celtic heritage that enables me to easily accept the idea of selkies and faire folk sharing my universe. I’m fascinated by your Children of the Sea stories. You’ve called the series a trilogy but I’m hoping you’ll decide to expand it further. Do you have plans to write more books? Will Iestyn, Roth and Kera get stories? Please? As you can see, I’m not above begging. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I love this series! yes it is very magical;) when you read it its like stepping into a magicalworld, you just know its special! I read the first two and couldnt put them down! Im so excited to read Sea Lord;) I just felt from book one ,that there was something very special about Lucy, I cant wait to finally read her story! I love that Lucy is the strongest heroine, because she could be anyone of us, we all go through things in life when we feel insecure or not good enough, but there is strenght in every woman ;)So I think Lucy is the character I most relate to. This is a beautiful series Virginia !;)

    Lovely! I could listen to Virginia Kantra talk all day long. ๐Ÿ™‚ Can’t wait to read the third in the series! I’ve loved Lucy so far and I’m glad she’s getting her story now.

    While my mother could not bring herself to read any novel that was branded “romance”, she did fantasize about selkies. This series would’ve been perfect. Thanks for getting us out of the vampire/werewolf rut, Virginia!

    Can I just say you guys did an amazing job with these videos? Thanks for the chance to share the Children of the Sea mythology.

    PJ, yes, there will be more books in this series. No begging required! I love writing this world. The next two stories, a historical novella and a stand alone novel out next year, will focus on Morwenna and Morgan of the finfolk. (You may remember Morgan as the warden of the nothern deeps in Sea Lord.) But they tie to Iestyn’s story in ways I won’t go into yet!

    I’m trying to create “series within the series,” each with its own story arc, so that readers can feel a real sense of completion and satisfaction with each one. So this trilogy was linked by the Hunter siblings, and the next will be linked as well.

    Hi Virginia and RNTV folks!
    I absolutely adore the Children of the Sea stories and finally the wait is over!!! Ah yes, Lucy Hunter — I love the whole idea of a woman who does not know her own power — brilliant. I am so happy to know there are more stories for us to read and enjoy in the future. When I read this series I can smell the ocean (and the brimstone!), hear the waves, and feel the sand beneath my feet — it’s atmospheric and transports you. Simply wonderful.
    All the best, and thank you so much for your stories — and special thanks to RNTV for the cool videos.
    Cheers,
    Stephanie

    Thank you, Virginia! I’m so glad you’ll be writing more Children of the Sea stories and I like the concept of the trilogies within a series. I’ll be looking forward to Morgan’s book. Even though he was a minor secondary character, he was definitely instrumental in the outcome of Lucy and Conn’s story and I found him to be intriguing. Of course, I’m thrilled that we’ll be seeing more of Iestyn. That boy has potential! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Virginia, your Children of the Sea stories are wonderful. Even tho I don’t usually read fantasies or supernatural stories, I try to be first in line to read your latest book. Keep it up. Your characters are wonderful, your writing is poetry, your stories are enchanting. Thank you.
    Love to you and your handsome husband,

    PJ, I’ve had a soft spot for Iestyn since “Sea Crossing” in SHIFTER.

    Lee, I’m so flattered that you stopped by! Thank you so, so much!

    Virginia can’t wait to get Sea Lord. The Children of the Sea stories have all the things that a good story need. Mystery Magic and Romance. Keep up the ellecent job.
