It’s been a while since I’ve read a Little Mermaid fairy tale retelling. This story was short, but packed with so many good things–mystery, adventure, and a promise of romance. The ending was intriguing, making me excited to learn more about Ianthe and what will come next after this short story.
This is my first introduction to Alice Ivinya, but I’m definitely planning on reading more of Alice’s works in the near future. I’m looking forward to what’s next!
My rating: 5 stars

Princesses and ladies alike are flocking from around the world seeking his hand, but the only person he has eyes for is the mysterious stranger who appears from nowhere with a terrible secret.
