The Last Mermaid

The Last Mermaid - Shana Abe

The story spanned generations, it was set in Scotland, it told of an eternal love...So what the heck went wrong?

 

Everything, it seems. I just didn't feel the connection and though I persevered to the "bitter" end, that elusive connection never appeared. Me and the story just didn't click. It had everything to do with the writing style, the pacing, and the "voice". Nothing worked for me, which is a shame since the premise was great.
