A collection of short stories about creatures of the deep I didn t realize until just before writing this review however that the authors are husband and wife pretty cool Each contributes three stories and overall I think I liked Dickinson s better If I had to rate just the McKinley pieces I d probably just give it two stars Sea Serpent and Kraken were my two favorite stories I liked it well enough that I ll probably read the next one in the series which has a theme of fireI thought it was interesting that none of the main characters except one came from a function family Sad but I guess it fits the fairy tale genre Mermaid Song Loved the ending but had a heartbreaking middle The Sea King s Son Enjoyed some of the elements of the story but a little gushier than I like Sea Serpent Perhaps my favorite story of the compilation Scary monsters adventure magic this one had it all Water Horse My favorite of McKinley s interesting ideas of the guardians and how their magic works Kraken Good story archetypal facing of the unknown It worked out in the end a little better than I would have expected but I was expecting Lovecraft and less Disney A Pool in the Desert This was just weird Sucky home life for the main character who has crazy parents enough that I can understand her desire to leave But I didn t really get why she formed such an attachment for where she was headed nothing particularly good there for her and the pacing in the last two pages was so much faster than earlier that it threw me off McKinley s total shift of momentum left me feeling slightly confused and unhappy about the ending She should have just cut out one or two paragraphs or fleshed them out to a few pages worthRating PG 13 for some mild sexuality

Damar Damar Damar Damar Damar and a character named Ruth DamarSo yes this collection had a new Damar story which I loved but I thought the collection as a whole was kind of erratic but that is maybe partly due to the fact that I adore Robin McKinley and don t have the same reaction to Peter Dickinson The three McKinley stories in the collection were my favorite and I ended up skimming one of Dickinson s The Sea Serpent because I couldn t get into it McKinley simply paints images in my head that refuse to go away no matter how long it has been since I have read the story that sparked the paintingDefinitely worth reading if you love McKinley and if you want to give the others a try I think Mermaid Song is his strongest offering in the volume
