Chasing Tail: A Little Mermaid Retelling
Fairy Tales that Bite Back (Book 3)
A sad little mermaid trades her voice for legs to get a stupid human prince to fall in love with her. What a crock.
That wasn’t how my story went at all. That’s not even how mermaids work. We can have legs whenever we want them. We just mostly choose not to because we dislike people who live on land. I never would have set foot there, but I needed to kill a druid king. Yeah, the little mermaid didn’t come on land to fall in love with a prince. She went there to kill a king. There are rules. Certain waters are off limits for the land dwellers. He came to my home in a large ship and killed several of my friends. The sea council might want to let that slide, but he killed my sister, so now I have to end him.
Getting close enough to the king to kill him is going to be hard. He has three sons that could be my answer to living through this. They aren’t bad for druid royalty. Two of them are kindle and gentle. The other is a little mean in a way I can appreciate. Still, I don’t trust any druid. Out of all the supernatural creatures on land, they are the worst. A lot of their magic requires bits from living beings and their ethics on getting those aren’t exactly sound.
I might like his sons, but this can’t go anywhere. Most people tend to balk at relationships when you kill their father. I won’t stop until it’s done. I owe it to my sister.
