Mermaid Moon: Review

Mermaid Moon by Susann Cokal
Rating: 4/5 stars
A mermaid who gets legs to go on land so she can complete a mission and find her mother.

I really enjoyed this light and easy read. Even though it was a complex story, it was kind of easy to understand and enjoyable. The chapters were short and it was easy to fly through the book in one sitting if you wanted to. Each chapter made it suspenseful and it was hard to stop flipping the pages. But this book's pace was a little confusing because it would go fast and slow randomly. This book was a whooping 500 pages but it felt like 250-300 pages. There were mutiple POVs but not split up on how you are thinking. It would be like one chapter on the main character, Sanna, and the next chapter would be POVs of other characters in the book which was amazing to think about because usually author's don't write what other characters POVs like this. Usually they each get their chapter or there minds aren't mentioned. This is a difficult thing to do and the author nailed it. I did enjoy the author's writing style and the way she wrote this book.

My favorite character was Tomas Chicken Legs. I kind of felt him at some points and he was interesting to know about. I also liked the main character, Sanna, but didn't feel that connected to her. There was a funny scene (well for me) when Sanna was learning what sex is and how kissing felt like because it reminds me how my parents would approach me when I was younger and how I would think in reality like her. These scenes were mostly about what love really is and how different it could be like family love and other's love. I didn't like the other characters a lot but overall they were fine. The ending was kind of mindblowing when you find out who the mother is and I love how the author ended the story off.
