I was really surprised by how much I loved this book since I couldn't stand Fiora in the first one! The author did an excellent job giving a little more insight into her life and changing the reader's perspective on her. She was a also a very dynamic character that was easy to love once she started to be more vulnerable and change for the better. This whole series is a great, clean spin on classic fairy tales! Very entertaining! I am now anxiously awaiting the fourth book to come out next month! ...more

This is a cute series from a new to me author. I've been enjoying these retellings of fairy tales that all resolve around a greater threat. Each book in the series is about different characters but they overlap and is best to be read in order. ...more

Alright, moment of honesty: I have so thoroughly enjoyed the first two books that, despite my clear adoration for all things mermaid, I was a little doubtful that this one would hold up to the other two, especially with Fiora as the MC. But, fear not my friends! Marshall's got a few tricks up her sleeve!

Okay, so, right off let's talk about Fiora. In the first book she was overbearing and clearly not the kindest soul in the room. She was competitive and knew exactly what she wanted. She was well-

This was such a good book, this is the third book that I have read written by A G Marshall and I have to say, I think it is my favorite! Princess of Mermaids is the third book in A G Marshall’s series, Fairy Tale Adventures. Once I heard that this book was about Fiora, I had to read it. I couldn’t wait to see what made her tick, and I have to say I loved it!
Fiora was such an interesting character. I loved reading about her journey and reading about her fall in love. All her life Fiora wanted to

This is one of those books that's not necessarily good but it's enjoyable. I still have the complaints as I did from book #2 in the series; the books feel too disconnected and the magic systems feel completely different from book to book. If this was intentional it could end up having a really cool crossover result similar to the MCU. If the couples from each of the previous books team up to form an Avengers-esque team then I am here for it. If we get the different types of magic as Infinity Sto ...more

Loved it! I'm a big fan of mermaids and this book is what brought me to this series. I love how the author kept all the main points of each story, but with a wonderful series bringing it all together. I can't wait to read what comes next! ...more

Absolutely the best retelling of the little mermaid. It has hints of Hans Christian Andersen darker end, rather than Disney’s happily ever after interruption. I loved that it was told this way and that the littler mermaid wasn’t as good, as most retelling have her be.

Great author

Really enjoyable writing. Advise not to read if you are in a place you don’t want to laugh out loud. Much humor sprinkled throughout the book.

I absolutely did not expect to like Fiora in this book, but I did. This one's for any girl who ever struggled to fit in, only to push others away. I really need the next book, now, please!! ...more

I was drawn to this series because it had everything I needed for a bit of escapism during this time of global pandemic: strong female characters with agency; a touch of magic; romance with a twist; humor; and beautifully written stories that feel complete.

It's for those reasons that I feel slightly disappointed in the PRINCESS OF MERMAIDS. It still has a strong female character with agency--except when she's giving up because nobody likes her (only at one point recognizing that her own behavior

This is my favorite Fairy tale retelling I've read so far. The author does such a good job of taking things from both the original tale, and from Disney and making it her own in her own fantasy world. Fiora is a real character, with real problems and you just feel for her the entire story. She never got annoying with her doubts, because her character arc was just so organic and the culmination of her story arc was so satisfying and perfect. Fiora and Gustav's romance, also was very realistic. Th ...more

This is the third book in the Fairy Tale Adventures series by A.G. Marshall.

This was a really interesting book. I like how the first two books in this series feature characters that will show up in upcoming books. Although, I was not a fan of Fiora in book one. She came off as annoying and self righteous. In this book we experience her feelings and who she really is after her father banishes her to the sea. Carina’s father did a similar thing in book two. I feel so sorry for these chara
So I'm a bit biased against this book simply because I've never loved Ariel once I realized how bratty she was, but I still found this book to be excellent.

Fiora might still have a temper and be wildly un-ladylike, at least she had a reason. Although she might not deserve the super-kind-and-somehow-awkwardly-charming Gustave, I didn't hate her, which was a plus. Besides, she did show some true heart in the end. Her bravery wasn't something I expected, so that was a nice surprise. And Gustave, o

Well, this one took an unusual turn!
I don't know much about the Little Mermaid story. I watched the Disney version in French class over 20 years ago and I can still sing "Kiss the Girl" in French...LOL.
Fiora wasn't my favorite character in book 1. Gustave was fun in book 2. Honestly, I don't remember much of him in book 1.
This story was full of turns for me. But that might be due to the lack of knowledge of the original story. I liked this one though!
I loved the mermaid family and then the new f

After reading the first two in the series I honestly wasn’t too keen on reading a book about this character. It did take a while for the book to engage a different viewpoint but I’m glad I stayed with it.

(Without spoilers);
I would recommend you start with the first two books in the series and then also continue to the authors website to read additional notes and chapters regarding the characters

Fiora and Gustave’s story that was a twisted. This story is very good. Mermiads and humans. A curse to find a love one. And another curse to save two lives.

I wasn't sure what to expect when I learned that the egotistical and condescending princess from the first Fairy Tale Adventures book, Princess of Shadows would take on the role of the innocent and kind-hearted little mermaid. Yet, as I read further into Princess of Mermaids, I realized that I relate to Princess Fiora more than I care to admit. Like many well-meaning individuals, Fiora has a tendency to speak her mind with little regard to the effect it has on those around her. As a result, she ...more

I absolutely love this series. It's been awhile since I read the first books so I retain ZERO knowledge of Fiora from that. Which I went into this not thinking whatever horrible thoughts someone else might who remembered her from the first book.

I loved that Fiora struggled to fit in as a mermaid not because she randomly pined for land or love, but rather she was half-human and she had a bit of a dual nature. She liked some things about being under the sea, but also had lots of good points about

Captivating read!

This was a fascinating read that I thoroughly enjoyed. AG Marshall's world-building is fantastic and subtly wove the story of the Little Mermaid throughout this book. Redeeming Fiora after the first book was quite the feat, but well-done! This was sweet and clean, I'd rate it PG for some references to nakedness and loose morals.

This fantasy world keeps getting better. I have my suspicions about some of the larger plot elements running along in the background. Can't wait to read more to see if I'm right.

Excellent - didnt want it to end

To start let me say I had trouble getting through the first book but Im so glad I did as the second was good and this one was truly excellent. First, I love that a previously disliked character was the heroine and we got to see her redeemed as both she became more self aware and we got to know her. Second, I love the level of detail and complexity in the story. This was not just a mindless read. Third, I love that the characters acknowledge the ridiculous romance

Over the corse of the past few days, ive been reading this series. And ive found a bunch of posatives. Like how these books are so much longer than your average fairy tale rewrites. Or how unique this retelling is. Or how nice it is to have an overall plot between the books.

But I just cant give this book more than 4 stars. Any of the books. This is because the auther makes it painfully ovbious how much time is going by in the book(which mostlikely than not is a very short amount of time).

Lots of errors, negativity.

There were a lot of grammatical errors including extra words that made the sentence not make any sense. The storyline was okay but we were rooting for the sharp tongued, disrespectful, princess that we didn’t like in The Princess of Shadows. The book was very negative with numerous scowls and glares. I described it as the dumb prince fell in love with the rude girl. A lot of building up and it took too long to finish. Also for the ending of the series it felt incomple
