I'll be honest in saying that when I initially picked up this book it was because I had $20 of a Groupon I had purchased that I had to spend and I wasn't sure what to expect.

The twist on the tale is something I enjoyed, however the characters were very two dimensional with very little development. However, despite that I could relate on some level to the princess who felt she was destined for more and the the mermaid who longed for a world different from her own.

Things you should be aware of prior to reading this novel:

For me it was a slow start. In fact I didn't actually start to get interested in it until about one hundred pages in which was basically half way through the book.

Don't expect to fall in love with the characters. They're a bit whiny for my taste.

The main reason I enjoyed this book so much is because I have unhealthy fascination with mermaids and felt that the author did a good job in twisting the tale into something believable while still maintaining the magic of the Disney classic "The Little Mermaid".
