Although I had not been impressed with Shana Abe's Drakon series, I gave this book a chance, mostly just because of the title and my love for all things mermaid. I was not disappointed. Abe's lovely descriptive writing sucked me in right away. This book is actually a collection of 4 stories based around the same myth/island. I enjoyed the first 3 stories. The last one was a bit... reaching. I think the writer just wanted to go through all the era's from past to present. But I still enjoyed the read none the less. The myth/legend is not necessarily a new idea but Abe's ability to write characters that you form connections with is what keeps it fresh and engaging.
