More impressively he has created an original cast of strong female role models with respectable male counterparts. I especially love the noble Helmi character and am pleased to hear there will be more books to read about her family. It was easy to imagine her underwater palace - warm, welcoming. Even during the more dramatic and emotional parts of her history.
I will admit there were times while reading that I had to catch my breath as the pace can go from 0 to 100 with certain revelations.
Genius story outline and better yet, quite entertaining.
You get lulled into the storyline despite the fact that they take place in three different timelines; but all merging seamlessly with the characters and the story.
Great, detailed backstory on mythical origins and connections.
The book starts with the original Little Mermaid who is Helmi, the ninth and last daughter of Poseidon and Amphitrite (hence the `little' mermaid). The story then jumps to the present and talks about a young girl named Pearl, who unknowingly is Helmi's granddaughter. The story takes off from there. There were a few spots where I thought the story was starting to get slower, but the author jumps the story again, keeping you involved in the book and keeping it from getting too slow. Then it starts expanding from there and more story lines are added. More people's viewpoints are added later (ie: Helmi's husband, Helmi's daughter Miranda, and a few others). By the end, most of the story lines have merged together.
I was amazed at the amount of imagination and research of history that went into this book. The author also researched various myths around the world about mermaids and the various Greek, Roman, and Norse gods and even gives his version of what happened to Atlantis.
When you think of Disney's Little Mermaid, the story took place in Eric's kingdom and under the sea near Eric's castle. But this book takes place throughout the oceans and in several places on land in various parts of the world.
This book has some romance in it but the majority of it is adventure. There is also the mystery of how Pearl, daughter of Mermaid Princess Miranda and granddaughter of Mermaid Queen of the Oceans Helmi, came to be on land and what happened to her parents. And of course what is a little mermaid story without the sea hag or witch. She is in here along with several other `bad guys'.
This was a wonderful story. It can be read as a single book, but at the end the author tells you that there are two more full length books planned. This is a long, but very well written book. Warning: this story is not for little kids. Although it is not a `mature' book, I would recommend it for teens and older.
If you're the type who can get lost in a book and can't put it down, then I suggest that you start this book early in the morning, because I wish that I had!
