Book Review: Shearwater


Buy Shearwater here

Shearwater, by D. S. Murphy, is a fascinating fictional look at the mythology of Ireland. Clara Clark never knew she had relatives in Ireland. She lived in America, until a tragic accident claimed the life of both of her parents while they were on their way to watch Clara perform in a high school musical production. Clara had a beautiful voice. . . .almost siren like in its beauty. When her parents died, it was discovered that her closest relative was a grandfather in Ireland that she never knew she had. So when the dust settled, she was off to Ireland!

Clara is a bit out of her element in Ireland, not being raised with these myths and legends, but she needs to learn fast who she can trust, who she can’t, and who she is. She missed her friends, but she also enjoyed the novelty of being the new girl, the girl with the accent. But when her appearance changed dramatically on her 16th birthday, people began telling her there was something special about her. Something that may not be safe.

D. S. Murphy tells a riveting tale about mythological creatures and their enemies. Shearwater is skillfully written and convincingly portrays high school life with its jealousies and complexities. I expected a children’s book about mermaids, but Shearwater is actually more like the popular vampire television shows and movies where the otherworldly creatures were integrated into human life. Readers who enjoy stories about these and other supernatural creatures will love Shearwater.
