I read this book without any expectations, i didn't even read the synopsis. I haven't read Hans Christian Andersen - The Little Mermaid, so i can't comment there :/

Going in without any expectations i was fairly surprised. It was a short read, lasted a few hours. Nyx was an interesting character being impulsive and with a rebellious streak... I didn't like the other character Lysander(was that his name?) not sure why, just rubbed me the wrong way..

I liked his Mom and Nyx Sister Thetis... The oth

This modern retelling of the classic story of The Little Mermaid left me with a bad taste in my mouth, so to speak, at the end.

It was left somewhere in between leaving the readers unsatisfied and longing for more of a story. I would not recomend this novel.

Woah this book left me feeling in utter despair! It's such a sad story.
It is extremely well written where everything is described so vividly.
This may not be a book with a happy ending but it's worth reading without a doubt!

I thought that it was an interesting take on The Little Mermaid. It seemed a little short to me but I just blame it on the fact that I read fast.

what a sad story... this story's ending is a total opposite of disney's the little mermaid. very very saddening end but nyx finally realised the people who really loved her for who she was.

Loved the story. I was never much into the little mermaid type storys but this one was really good. This book made me very close to crying a few times.
