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!

Ok, so first off, I really do love this book. I enjoy the series as a whole. Honestly, my room mate and best friend practically things you almost a diety because I am willing to read outside of my genre--and he has been trying to get me to read fantasy for years. Yours are the first books I have gone out to read and finished lol.

I had picked up TSS (Stepsister Scheme) at a SciFi Con in dallas, (They had these adorable little bookmarks with the covers on them,and I was pleased with the cute cover, and one of the sellers happened to have a few copies so I picked one up). I will admit I put off reading it for a while, but I sat down and just devoured it! Then I had to wait seven months for the next book. It is generally a personal rule to NEVER read an incomplete series, I usually stick with dead authors, but I just couldn't wait to get this book!

It was fun, although not as many one lines as the first I think. But the new character and expansion of the setting, it's really getting more and more apparent that you are comfortable with the setting. It was great to see more interaction, both with Theo and Bea, as well as Armand.

I am a fan of this new prince though. Varisto. And there powers were so fascinating! Him being bound to the earth! And his brother having air elementals? Perhaps it throws back to my pagan upbringing but I loved it. Is there any chance of more of him or others from his country?

The Dryad and the ship were such great humor aspects. The fact that she knew everything going on was such a kicker. I loved her line when Danielle was asking about the ship, and the captain answered "It was a big tree." I laughed so hard the people at the restaurant were looking at me.

Now that I have stayed up four hours past my usual bed time, becasue I simply COULDN'T go to bed without knowing how it all turned out, I just want to thank you. The books have been a joy to read, and what ever you do with the characters I have faith it will do great, and I shall run out and buy the next book ASAP.

So that's a hint to write it quickly ^_~
