Synopsis by goodreads.com
Mermaid stories are cropping up a lot right now (and I'm not complaining, because I really enjoy them). So why wait for this one? For one: the Synopsis! It sounds really intriguing. This time it's the man coming on land, so there's an inverted role allocation, which I find quite refreshing. Action and suspension also seem to get their fair share in this novel with shark encounters and all. Secondly: look at that cover! Need I say more?
