Mermaid Discussion Post

As requested, here is your more-or-less official discussion thread for The Mermaid’s Madness [Amazon | Mysterious Galaxy].

Because my blog mirrors to different places, I’d suggest going either to LiveJournal or http://www.jimchines.com/2009/10/mermaid-discussion-post/ for the liveliest discussion.

Spoilers ahoy, obviously.

If you haven’t read the book and don’t want to know what happens, stay the heck out of the comments.  Otherwise, all discussion, speculation, and questions* are welcome.


*I might even answer some of ‘em!

Echoing a lot of what other commenters have said here. I enjoyed seeing more of Armand, knowing that he deserved the love Danielle had for him, and yet it was also nice that he didn't overshadow the princesses and become the Knight in Shining Armor, riding to the rescue.

I definitely look forward to seeing more of Talia's backstory in Red Hood's Revenge - she's probably my favorite princess out of the three. But, I also liked the hints of the darkness in Snow's normally bubbly nature that's potentially inherited/learned/??? from her mother (or perhaps simply something that comes with having great power or schnazz). I was sad that Morveren had to go - I think that having a (seemingly) benevolent teacher would'e been good for Snow and her magic.

I hope to see glimpses of Lirea and Lannadae in future books, if you can logically fit it in. She had a bittersweet ending, but there was a lot of hope in it, too, and it'd be nice to check in on her later.

I also liked the fact that you expanded the POV characters to include the other princesses. That was really nice.

Bottom line, I'd been looking forward to this book for months and wasn't disappointed. RRR should be quite a ride!
