I listened to this book, something I haven’t done in a while. I think if I had actually read it, my opinion would have been very different.
It’s the story of Merle, and takes place in Venice, Italy, but in some other version of Venice where stone lions roam and mermaids are captured as pets.
It’s hard for me to properly judge this book because I listened to it. It was slow, even for listening, and nothing really seemed to happen. It ended right at the climax, and instead of making me think “I want to know what happens next!” it made me thing “Well, that was dumb.”
There were parts of the story that were interesting, but a lot of it was just cliché and rushed. I may listen to the sequel if I can find it, but if I can’t I won’t worry about it.
