The Mermaid by Christina Henry

2 Stars

When I heard Christina Henry was going to take on P.T. Barnum, my reaction pretty much looked like this . . . .

Only with more facial hair.

I will 100% admit my hopes were extraordinarily high. I was banking on something D.A.R.K. since that has been Henry’s forte as well as the way she made me crossover into stalker superfan status with not only her spin on Alice but also Captain Hook. Although there was an obvious take on the mermaid legend that could have been presented . . . . .

I was ready for this author to take a less-traveled road regarding this captive mermaid. And for a minute I thought she had . . . .

“You can’t climb out if someone takes your jar of sand away.”

So good, right?????

But then . . . . .

A kissing book?!?!?!?!?!

I still anxiously await her next release.
