I've previously reviewed Alethea Kontis' novella BLOOD AND WATER, her debut novel ENCHANTED, and her newest novel, HERO.
I've also interviewed author Alethea Kontis, and interviewed ENCHANTED cover designer Christine Kettner! Alethea has also written a guest post on "Families in Fiction" for the HERO Blog Tour and written a short story for last year's Splash into Summer event entitled "Well Behaved Mermaids Rarely Make Fairy Tales!"
Today, I'm DELIGHTED to have been chosen to take part in The Fantastical Tour and once again have Alethea here!
(And, super-duper secret?? Alethea is swinging back next week to take part in A Week of Rapunzel with a brand-new and awesome Fairy Tale Rant!)
Check out Alethea's Flash Fiction piece "Well Behaved Mermaids Rarely Make Fairy Tales!"
Carolyn Turgeon's MERMAID in part due to the fact that the POV is shared by the often-neglected Princess, I loved that Alethea Kontis focused on the "villain" of The Little Mermaid and delved into discovering her origins and motivations. Side-Show Freaks posted an awesome article from Kontis regarding the origins of BLOOD & WATER that I highly recommend reading. Teaser: The idea stemmed from two separate words on a piece of paper, "vampire" and "mermaid." When strung together...well, what is a vampire mermaid?
The sea witch wasn't always a villain. She had the same brilliant soul as the little mermaid (in this version, they have souls), fell in love, and bargained more than she realized in the pursuit of love. The sea witch is trapped in an endless cycle of death and destruction, until the day comes when a besotted little mermaid comes asking for help, saying just the right words. The cycle begins anew, with the mermaid discovering the horrible price of her wish and all that it entails. Is the price of love too high?
MAGIC AND MONSTERS, and is also available for 99¢ as an e-book. You can also read it as a subscriber of the Intergalactic Medicine Show.
