Finally! This book has given me the depiction I've wanted since I was child, that of a mermaid gnawing on raw viscera. Its an ashy and melodic tale that packs an impressively rich world into so few pages. Honk if you love mermaids! *HONK HONK*
With whimsical illustrations and a plethora of mer-lore from all over the world, this book would have captivated little Dean for hours. Lets be honest, adult Dean is pretty jazzed as well.
This novella is a moving and necessary addition to every bookshelf. Not only is it a brief and captivating aquatic fantasy (well-suited for a first time dip into the genre), but it's an artistic collaboration; a poignant song that gets stuck in your head and shifts your attention. Within the significant and beautifully dangerous ocean, Solomon shines a light on the joint horror and growth that comes from remembering the people and actions of the past. Only through this is the necessity of moving towards the future as a community realized. (Make sure to listen to the Clipping album of the same name for the full experience).
