"A new world is born in this fantasy work of art"

In a world deep under the sea there is a kingdom that has survived centuries and the modern world doesn't know it exsists. The people who live there are the Seaborn and their history is interesting, intriguing and special.

Kassandra is the granddaughter of the King of the Seaborn and has been banished to the surface. Not letting her grandfather keep her in exile forever she is learning to use her powers. Once strong enough she will face the King and take the crown for herself. She is a power to be reckoned with and it is nearly time for her to go against the man who tried to hide that she is Seaborn.

When Corina, a college student goes for her weekly dive she is sure there is something in the water with her. Then her mind and body is taken over and she can not control anything the Seaborn sorcerer does with her. She has to fight to keep Aleximor from taking revenge on the world after being imprisoned for four hundred years.

A new world is born in this fantasy work of art. The sea has alot on offer in this fresh and unique debut book by Chris Howard. With some darkness, alot of depth and some fantastic characters this is a must read for any fantasy fans who like the sea aspect or who just want to try something a little different. Sometimes a little complicated to follow, the author has weaved a tale that needs to be taken in slowly to understand all the delights it holds.

Seaborn was interesting and has left me wanting more. Hopefully there will be more on offer soon because even though I don't like swimming in the sea I certainly like reading about it and the treasures it holds.

**A PNR Reviewer Recommended Read**

There is a world deep in the Atlantic, a kingdom that has endured thousands of years without anyone on the surface—in the modern world—knowing it exists.

Kassandra is the Seaborn king's granddaughter—the one he wished he'd killed when he'd had the chance. She comes from the sea, but she has spent her whole life in exile on the surface, struggling to control frightening powers she barely understands. But the young woman is powerful. Kassandra has already defeated the king's warriors once. Now she's ready to declare war on her murderous grandfather.

Corina Lairsey is a California college student who has just freed herself from a controlling relationship when she finds herself in another. Only this time, Aleximor, an ancient Seaborn sorcerer, is literally inside her head, and wearing her body. Corina must strive for control of her self, fighting against time as Aleximor trades pieces of her life away in exchange for power over the path between the worlds of the living and the dead.
