Short Story of The Week (50) - Linnea

Story Title: Linnea
From: Half-Human
Author: D.J. Malcolm


Linnea finds herself kidnapped by a half man half shark sea god, and in thus makes many discoveries about herself. Firstly is a mermaid and secondly her father was once a sea god.

My Thoughts

Well, it's seems like all my young dance students can talk about is mermaids. Somehow I think that made me want to read a mermaid story. This one is different from any one that I have read. It was also very action packed for a short story. There were so many surprise reveals, chases, and even a tiny bit of fighting. I have to say that I enjoyed it immensely.

Mermaids definitely seem to be a hot topic right now. Sirens, too. I've got a couple of those on my TBR pile, so here's hoping they're good reads!

(Gotta say, the half-shark thing keeps reminding me of Viktor Krum's half-successful transfiguration spell during the 2nd task in the 4th Harry Potter book!)

People seem to be drawn to short stories more and more. This sounds like a fun fantasy.
