What he?d end up with is The Mermaid?s Madness?a whole new take on The Little Mermaid. And with Jim C. Hines, of Jig the Goblin fame, penning the tale, you can bet it won?t be ?They lived happily ever after.?

I found this sequel more enjoyable than the original although I would recommend reading the original first because it contains important backstory. I thought the plot was cleverly woven in this sequel and new characters were introduced and followed through well. This sequel provided more backstory to some of the main characters and I am hoping that trend continues in later books as it is quite interesting. As for the plot itself I was impressed by how far the author expanded the little mermaid story and how believable this expansion was.

Not your standard princess story. Sleeping Beauty, Snow White, and Cinderella are all strong, capable heroines. This novel can stand alone--you don't have to read Stepsister Scheme first.
