This book was *so* creepy, but so well done. Imagine Stepford wives drawn, by magic, from the bodies of seals. The basic storyline is that the men of Rollrock Island hire a witch named Miskaella who uses her magic “make” them wives from the seals who visit their beach. Once the woman has been drawn out of the seal, her husband only needs to keep her seal skin hidden away so that she cannot leave. The seal-women are beautiful and obedient, but they desperately miss their lives and families in the sea. The human-born women all leave the island in disgust, but the men don’t seem to be phased because they would rather have the beautiful creatures who bow to their every whim. I loved how the story was told from the perspectives of multiple people, including Miskaella herself. Not quite as dark as Tender Morsels, but a dark tale nonetheless.
