About this ebook

A little mermaid. A prince to save. Only silence can break the spell.

Once upon a time...

The mermaid Margareta saved Prince Erik from a shipwreck. Wanting to see the prince again, Margareta strikes a bargain with the Master of Beacon Isle. If she saves his sons from a terrible curse, he will reunite her with Prince Erik. All she has to do is stay silent until the curse is broken.

Silence is a virtue...until Prince Erik arrives early, searching for the mermaid who saved his life.

I had forgotten the original fairytale but I LOVED this retelling, no sympathy for the cursed, ungrateful brothers but Margareta and Erik's story was just lovely. A must have for your library!

Silence is the 6th fairytale remake in this series and is just as wonderful as the first five! I have looked forward to each release and this one didn't disappoint anymore than its predecessors. It was considerably shorter, and felt like a connector story of sorts, but still a wonderful read. To summerize: Silence is a retelling of The Little Mermaid that has a much happier ending than the original (not the Disney folks). As with the previous books, this deals with very real adult issues and thus transforms from a traditional fairy tale meant to teach or scare children, to an intriguing story for an adult readership. Definitely suggest giving it a read! But do read Revel first-it provides more background and a better understanding of the heroine's brothers.
