From adventure to thriller, to urban fantasy, this collection features stories from bestselling YA authors as well as emerging voices, this anthology will take you deep into the heart of the sea.
This six-story anthology includes tales by Amber R. Duell, E.J. Hagadorn, Elle Beaumont, and K.M. Robinson and the printed book includes artwork by a number of talented artists that created mermaid pieces, some of which are inspired by the stories from the anthology.
|In a time where mermaids are the IN thing, this anthology came out at the perfect time.
Each story was unique and while I don’t have a favorite I’d have to say the one that stood out the most would be Bloodscales by Amber R. Duell. All of them were different, two of which took place in the same kingdom but centuries apart.
As a whole this was a charming collection.
If you’re looking for some new takes on mermaids and some stories you might know… check this one out.
