This weeks indie book of the week is actually a short story called A Merman's Kiss by Laura Lond.
This story had a very fairy tale feel to it. In fact it read a lot like the fairy tales I grew up reading and loving as a child.
This was a pretty fast short read though so even though it was very well written it was hard to get a complete feel for the characters like you would in a novel.
The ending did have a somewhat abrupt feel to it but like I mentioned, it was well written and considering it was a short story it was handled nicely.
I would love to read a full length book from the author because I did really enjoy her writing style.
I think if you are looking for a fast, unique read about merpeople this would be a great book to read.
I do love short stories, especially in a collection. I recently read one I love in a collection of short stories of different authors called "Enthralled." The story I loved was "Giovanni's Farewell" by Claudia Gray.ReplyDelete
