The Selkie Pact by Judith Fullerton - A Review

Technically this is a children's book but having a long held fascination with mythology I was intrigued to read it. This is a glorious adventure that weaves the mythology of the Antrim coast throughout the story.

The hero of the story is Finn whose quiet summer holiday by the sea with his kindly grandparents is turned on its head when he starts to be drawn into a strange adventure that raises questions about everything he thought he knew and challenges his ingenuity.

A lovely book and I imagine it would be a nice way to introduce kids, who weren't already familiar with them, to some of the Celtic myths and folklore.
