*I received an ARC copy of this book from the author for an honest review.
Child of Water is a short story in the Lunar Medallion series by Lela Grayce. This story takes place on Earth at the same time as the events happening in Gaai. In this book, Elara has just left an abusive relationship and finds peace near a waterfall/pond. She retreats there often, as it is quiet and no one is ever around. One day, however, a man emerges from the water and heals her injured wrist.
After learning that the man, Nuri, is actually a kelpie, he helps her connect to water. Through the connection and this new friendship, Elara begins learning more about the different worlds, as well as herself.
I loved this short story! Like Areion, it’s such an intriguing, unique fantasy. I’m quickly becoming obsessed with this world (well, worlds) that Lela has created. The only thing I didn’t like was that it is a short story; I want more! I cannot wait until the next book, which will be the sequel to Areion about the Scylla twins.
