My Review:

I wanted to read this anthology because I’ve read Amber R. Duell’s Fragile Chaos and the novella, and I love her writing! Her story did not let me down and was my favorite!

Another reason I wanted to read this was because of mermaids! Mermaids! All the authors had unique stories that sucked me right in. K.M. Robinson’s two tales also had great character depth!
