Once upon a time . . . that's how the old stories always begin.Once upon a time there was a king of a fallen kingdom. He was just and he was beloved. Or so the numbers said. One day, he gathered together the greatest, wisest minds in all the land--not sorcerers, but scientists--and he bade them fashion him a son. A prince. A perfect prince to embody his father's legacy.The scientists each brought the prince a gift: beauty, strength, ambition, intellect, pride. But they must have forgotten something because when he saw the mermaids dance at the Cirque de la Mer, he ran away to join them.For a year, he trained them, performed with them, thought he was happy. For a year he thought he was free. But then Nerites came: A merman who refused to be tamed. A captive from another kingdom. A beast in a glass cage.The old stories always end with happy ever after. But this isn't one of the old stories. This is a story of princes and monsters.… (més)

Why Mr. Hall, I didn't know you wrote poetry. ( )

WARNING FOR THOSE WHO DON'T READ DESCRIPTIONS: This book has a HFN ending, which will hopefully be corrected with another book Y/Y??



I just read this book all in one sitting. I couldn't put it down. The concept, the COVER ART (LOOK AT THAT ARTPRON *FOAMS AT MOUTH BECAUSE HOMG PERFECTTTTT*), and characters, and ESPECIALLY the execution of the story was SO compelling and exquisitely done. I got to the end and literally screamed because "DON'T END IT THERE! GO WITH HIIIIIIMMMM UNDA DA SEAAAAAAAA!!" And when that DIDN'T happen, I was just... just so... soo... SOO--!!



I have never felt so betrayed in ALL MY LIFE! --Naw, I'm kidding. I've been betrayed worse. No joke.



This wasn't betrayal.

This was just an incredible story ending far too soon, when all I wanted was more. Even though that ending was perfect, and I don't want it to change. EVER. I just want MOARRRRRRRR

I must have been very young when I saw the mermaids at the Cirque de la Mer because it was my nurse who took me, and her place in my life was soon surrendered to tutors. I don't think my father ever found out. He would not have approved.
