I knew that I would love this book as soon as I saw the author, but when I realized it was about a mermaid....there was no doubt it would go down as an awesome read. That is exactly what it was.
We got to see into the daily life of Verona living in exile. My heart went out to her but yet Bailey seemed to give some hope to the situation Verona was in. I don’t want to give away any of the story as it is a short novella, but it was so good. I flew through the book and the end…oh my goodness! I just can’t wait to find out what happens next.
I highly recommend this book and it gets 5***** from this reviewer all the way around.
A Falling In Deep Collection Novella
by Pauline Creeden
Genre: Mermaid Fantasy
Verona is a bottom feeder. She is the one mer in her clan who is considered the ugliest and least intelligent. Growing up with the constant bullying and abuse wasn’t the worst of what her kind had in store for her. At seventeen years old, she must now endure “The Reckoning.”
The scales will measure her worth to her clan. Will she endure thirty days as a land-walker to gather information and knowledge to appease her clan and return a valued member? Will she wait three years, until she is twenty, and find a mer of her kind to accept her and marry her? Or will she suffer exile for the rest of her life?
