Title: Dark Reign: A Paranormal Retelling of the Little Mermaid (Twisted Fates #1)
Author: Nikki Landis
A dark paranormal retelling of the classic
fairy tale The Little Mermaid.
My father is a daemon.
My mother is a cambion.
Humans are the enemy.
All my life I’ve been locked away in a foreign world of darkness, hidden among the shadows, yearning for a reality I can never embrace. I’m a prisoner among my own kind.
Every night at sunset, I sneak away as the last rays of the sun disappears over the horizon. A desperate attempt to find normalcy and acceptance in a forbidden world.
Everything changes when I save the life of a handsome stranger. I’m not supposed to care. I’m not allowed to intervene.
Human touch is forbidden.
Rebelling against the rules, I take him home and care for his numerous wounds. Our meeting awakens intense and frightening feelings. A passion neither of us expects as it exposes my world to the human realm.
Now the entire existence of my kind is threatened.
I’ve opened Pandora’s box and the Dresh are coming . . .
*** First in a new series of twisted tales from old classics ***
Born into darkness, Ari craves the light. As a demon, she shouldn’t crave the presence of a human, but when she follows one who is being mugged, she finds herself stepping in to save him. She can’t help the draw that feels to him and knows that that pull will doom them both.
This was a cute paranormal retelling of the Little Mermaid. Definitely dark and twisted, but that was what made it all the better! Definitely a page turner.
