I read the third of these books first and I absolutely fell in love with Fred the mermaid. She is so dry and droll and willfully misuses the F-word at every possible oppurtunity (I love a creative swearer even though I almost never swear myself). The books too gave me inspiration to write Undertow mostly because they were so un-cliched and thats exactly how I wanted Undertow to be. No sitting on rocks caterwauling….
If you havent read them this is a direct order, please do
