Beauties in the Deep Reviews
A short dark fairy tale that had my full attention from start to finish. For a shorter piece, I was impressed by how much depth the characters possessed. The story also carried more weight than many novella length books do in terms of world building. The underwater scenes in particular were fascinating. Having now read three of the author's books, I genuinely enjoyed each one and am looking forward to more.
This copy of "Beauties In The Deep" is actually signed by Zachary T. Owen and Facsimile signed by the artist Luke Spooner. This is one of 300 copies.
Creepy little girls and magical landsI was impressed with the amount of background info and detail on the characters as far as short stories go. One of my main issues with reading short stories is my desire to know more about the characters and setting. It's a personal problem I know, short story means less space for world building and character backstory and development. I was happy to feel very familiar with Ivory and her family life by the time all the mystical bits and scary stuff came around. This one had a very dark fairytale feel for my but in a modern and realistic way. (Hopefully that makes sense?)
Nice premise, but the execution was lacking (the writing was a little more YA than I would have liked). Still, I'd say the author shows great potential.
