Verona is a bottom feeder. She is the one mer in her clan who is considered the ugliest and least intelligent. Growing up with the constant bullying and abuse wasn’t the worst of what her kind had in store for her.
Verona is a bottom feeder. She is the one mer in her clan who is considered the ugliest and least intelligent. Growing up with the constant bullying and abuse wasn’t the worst of what her kind had in store for her. At seventeen years old, she must now endure “The Reckoning.”
The scales will measure her worth to her clan. Will she endure thirty days as a land-walker to gather information and knowledge to appease her clan and return a valued member? Will she wait three years, until she is twenty, and find a mer of her kind to accept her and marry her? Or will she suffer exile for the rest of her life?
As a novella, this was pretty short. Perhaps too short for my taste.
At times, it felt like there was too much description but not enough story going on. Obviously, I ended up skipping those parts. Since, it was mostly about the fish and water stuff. This is also the first book I’ve read from this series. Therefore, I’m not sure if I’m missing something here…I don’t know.
However, I did find myself enjoying this. This past few months, I keep finding myself reading more and more mermaid/siren books. I’m starting to think that I’m entering a new phase in my bookworm life.
Anyway, if a book leaves me hanging and curious for more. Then yup I did enjoy and I do recommend it. So, if you’re into mermaids and sea themed stories, this is the book for you.
What did you think of this book, have you read anything similar to it? Or do you have any recommendations for me to try? Lets chat, don’t worry, I don’t bite. ^^
