"Tears of the Sea" by Savannah Jezowski + giveaway links

Rescue a princess, meet a mermaid, win your reward.

The authors of the Fellowship of Fantasy tackle fairy tales from once upon a time to happily ever after. Explore twists on old tales and brand new magical stories. Meet feisty mermaids, friendly lampposts, and heroes who just might be monsters themselves.

This fourth anthology from the Fellowship of Fantasy will lead you on a quest for entertainment and storm the castle of your imagination. So make a wish and enter the deep dark woods to find stories that will make you laugh, shiver, and maybe even fall in love.

I'm so excited to be part of the blog tour for this spiffy collection of fairy tale retellings!  In this post, I'm specifically reviewing the story "Tears of the Sea" by Savannah Jezowski, but I intend to read the rest of the collection and review it as a whole eventually, so watch for that in a few weeks.

The official synopsis of "Tears of the Sea" is:  When Le Rae indulges her fascination with the forbidden sand walkers, she discovers more than danger in the shallow waters.  So right away, you know this is a Little Mermaid story, right?  

Truth be told, I don't much care for the Disney movie, and the original story by Hans Christian Anderson is a little too fatalistic for my taste too.  But I reeeeeeeally liked "Tears of the Sea" because of the ways Jezowski changed the story!  The mermaid girl is still obsessed with humans, but not in a romantic way.  And Jezowski added this merman character, Selken, who was pretty darn fabulous.  All in all, I thoroughly enjoyed this story and am excited to read the rest of the stories here.
