Harlow Bevans was a changling mermaid that was working for the Earthen Conclave as a diving consultant. Now though Harlow is currently a patient at the Edelweiss Mental Institution after Charybdis, a serial killer, possessed her body and wrecked her mind.
One night the door to Harlow’s room opens and she finds herself lured to the scene of a murder by the call of a haunting song. Being found over a dead body is not good news for Harlow and she finds herself needing to regain her strength and discover who is now killing in the hospital she’d found as an escape.
Fish Out of Water is a bit of a fantasy mixed with mystery/thriller along with a side of romance, yes sign me up for this one please. This is one of those novellas that when I finished reading I just think wow, now that is how you pack a good story into a short read.
This one has a complexity to the characters and the fantasy elements that you wouldn’t think you could get into a short read and still have a plot that is entertaining. The story was fast paced as it needed to be being shorter but it also gave enough depth to the world and character building to make it a very interesting read.
