The Sea Queen's Daughter

Rate this book
A twist on the fairy tale The Little Mermaid set in 18th-century Venice...

On a barge anchored in the middle of the Adriatic, Marco Lorendan meets a mysterious and beautiful woman. His fascination for her is sealed when she saves him from drowning and then disappears into the sea. Is she dead, or simply lost? Marco is determined to find out.

Living beneath the waters of the lagoon, Serena can change into whatever form she chooses, but cannot change her fate: to die in an ancient ritual that goes back to the founding of Venice. Serena wants to live in the human world with Marco, but will she save herself if it means the destruction of Venice?

A tale of star-crossed lovers and the magic that created one of the most beautiful cities on earth.

This is an interesting take on The Little Mermaid. It moves quickly... sometimes maybe a little TOO quickly! I would have liked more character development and insights into everything that happened "off-screen" (the main male character spends a year wandering the dungeons in search of the woman he love; seeing part of that would have been nice). And at times the narrative left me behind and I had to go back several paragraphs to figure out where the transition was. But the imagery is powerful and some of the scenes and additions in particular are really wonderful.
