This was unlike any other book I've ever read It takes you on a whirlwind tour around the coast of the UK and Ireland pausing at particular geographical locations to spin a yarn about a myth legend fable or tradition associated with that area before galloping on to the next place Every single one of those pauses and yarns could have probably filled a whole book in themselves and each one was told so beautifully and concisely so as to give a richly tantalising window into people's relationships with the sea and one another There were tales of smugglers and pirates; mermaids selkies and kelpies; gods and saints; natural phenomena fishermen's superstitions and much At the end I felt dizzied like I'd seen a flash of a thousand bright jewels and felt very much that the child like part of me that believes in magic and mermaids had been well fed I know that every time I am by the sea now I will be thinking of all the marvels that I have heard tell of in this book and keeping a close eye out for sea serpents and ghost ships I also found out so many things that I didn't know already even about the area that I grew up in This is such an important book bringing together what must have been a lifetime of careful research on the part of the authors and I think it will prove to be an invaluable reference work as well as an inspirational one for a very long time

This should have been a 4 star book for me I picked it up trying to get some fables and ideas to work into my novel writing And the collection of tales here is fantastic based all round the Isles where I live and have lived But often the tale is not told particularly well coming across bland even thought the subject matter is terrific So a great reference book for me with great research but alas let down as the storytelling is just okay But still worth it for the tales
