Friday Finds is hosted over at Should be Reading where bloggers are asked to explain the growing pile of books on their TBR list by answering “What great books did you hear about / discover this past week?”

I found what looks like a really fun paranormal romance series this week – the Children of the Sea series by Virginia Kantra. It has had some awesomely favorable reviews on-line and is successfully glaring at me from my ever-growing wishlist! Here are the details of the first book in the series, Sea Witch.

Sea Witch by Virginia Kantra
(Book 1 of the Children of the Sea series)

For years, Margred has gone without the touch of another. Now, her need has driven her beyond her world to sate her desire. For she is a Selkie-a legendary being of the sea, able to shapeshift into seductive human form. Finally, she has found the one man she wants…

From the land… A burned out veteran of big city streets, Caleb Hunter was only too happy to take a job as police chief on the peaceful Maine island of World’s End. Nothing ever happens in this tiny community bounded by the sea. Until he meets a woman who’s everything he’s ever dreamed of. And more…

To each other… Their passion is undeniable. Irresistible. But when a murderer begins targeting women in World’s End, Caleb must face the terrible possibility that the killings are somehow connected to the mysterious Margred – and that the power of their love may change the fate of human kind.

It looks like a great paranormal alternative to the vamps that have taken over the genre – not to say I am through with vamps quite yet, though!
