As someone currently writing a mermaid book, this was a perfect read. I seriously could not put this book down. It was beautifully written, stayed within the original minus minor tweaks here and there, and opened up a whole other world within the fairy tale – the world of the princess.
I’ve read a lot of re-tellings, and I absolutely love it when it gives us more insight into how things happened. A lot of reviewers are saying there was no point to this book, but I disagree. This was definitely a wonderful story, and while there were a couple out-of-nowhere sex scenes, it was beautiful and lyrical and made me feel inspired to write.
If you want a great Little Mermaid story with a slight twist that will leave you breathless, this is perfect. But if you’re looking for something original, well…. you probably shouldn’t be reading re-tellings haha.
