By: Donna Munro
Sept. 27, 2011 - PRLog -- This work of historical fantasy fiction is an exciting read from start to finish. The story centres around Casey, who, when she was on a sailing holiday with her parents fell over board and woke up being rescued back in the 1800s by Captain Halliburton who is sailing for the new colony of Western Australia.  

Now with a gift for returning to that era, and with strange powers to control oceans, Casey embarks on a dangerous journey to find her ancestors and prevent one of them from dying; enlisting the help of an FBI agent. There are corrupt Governments, deception and revenge as she is mistaken for a princess and kidnapped by pirates, while the Queen of the sea Amphitrite also takes her revenge in this rollicking sea tale.

The characters, with a few relating to actual persons, are well crafted and developed. The author has taken some historical facts, like the ship ‘Rockingham’ running aground close to the town known as Rockingham today, and woven them into the story.

This will appeal to readers of fantasy and historical fiction and particularly those who live in the town of Rockingham in Western Australia.

Dennis Seddon was born Ormskirk, Lancashire, England. He is 63 years old and has been married for 40 years to his lovely wife, Sue.

Deciding to give up the quiet village life, they immigrated to Western Australia in 1971. They have two daughters and six grandchildren.

After semi retiring in 1997, they settled in Rockingham, W.A.

Dennis developed an interest in writing four years ago and has written two short stories. Twelve months ago he tried his hand at fantasy fiction and wrote his first full novel, 'Daughters of the Sea'. At present he is writing the sequel to this novel, which he intends to call, 'Secrets of the Mariana Trench'.
