Mermaid's Madness is Marvelous

I've said it before and I'll say it again: Jim C. Hines is the shiznit.

Fairy tale tropes continue to be sent ass over teakettle in The Mermaid's Madness, the second outing for that trio of kick-ass princesses. This time Danielle, Talia, and Snow (Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, and Snow White) tangle with Ariel Lirea, aka The Little Mermaid.

No Disney version of the mermaid here.

Unless the Disney version had her go insane and lead an army of merfolk against the human world.

Didn't think so.

Magic. Mayhem. And Talia kicking ass. Of the three princesses, I have to say that she's my favorite.

If you enjoyed the first book, you will love this one. A thoroughly enjoyable read. Highly recommended.

Go Jim, go!
