Once again, Fred, Thomas and Artur get embroiled in a plot against the royal family and work together to unravel the mystery. All three books have laugh-out-loud moments, making them all fun, light, and quick reads. However, she is a woman who gave up on men a long time ago. Fred is just Queen Betsy in a bad mood. Is she really so greedy that she can't invest the time to create a complete story? Cheesy, but I thought it was very sweet. Her willingness to believe that her biological father had changed made me a little skeptical, especially considering how cynical she was about the U.
We have our suspicions, but every time we get close to a final decision the tables are turned yet again on everyone and we are back to square one. If Fred doesn't kill someone it will be a miracle. I had hoped Fred would pick Thomas the human one eventually, and even though it only finally came about in the last book, at least I got the ending I wanted. She misses fellow marine biologist, Thomas, who left with another mermaid in book two. I really like that about her. Who else is going to satisfy my foul mouth mermaid needs if not Fred.
I don't understand why she can't spend the time to actually write a full novel, a fully developed story. I am a little sad to be leaving Fred behind though it is a good ending point for the series, and it was well done , and I'm not sure I'll continue with this author now. Everyone else was telling her make her choice and pick one, but this book seemed to be pushing her towards Thomas. I was really looking forward to this last book and found it not as funny or interesting as I had hoped. Still, though, this is an excellent conclusion to a fun trilogy. It was great also to see that Fred were quite aware about her faults and her effect on other people.
Marc Marc is a professional a doctor who Betsy meets on top of a building when she saves him from attempting to kill himself. I felt they were included more because it was a nice way to farewell characters which had appeared in the first two books rather than adding anything plot wise. They may appear again one day; I don't think this series is on its last leg - or tail! And Barb refusing her resignation, she's already stressed. I'd say this one was on par with the first two books in the series, so if you liked those, pick this one up. This group of vampires was reverted to animals after being created by Nostro. In this novel, she is seen to be quick to help Betsy and also protective of Eric.
The plot was a bit jumbled and seemed to take a long time to get going… hence me reading all night long. Everything seems to just roll off her back and she keeps moving forward. I am now a Davidson reader for life! I know it's supposed to be light, but sometimes Davidson sucks all the drama out of an important scene because she can't resist putting in some jokes that really aren't that terribly funny. Jonas is planning his wedding to Dr. Oh yeah, her father turns out to be as bad as everyone said he was, but in the end Fred ends up snapping his neck and killing him. She currently lives in Minnesota with her husband and two children.
Not a whole lot actually happens in this book. They go quick and they are light and fluffy - but there is just enough story to keep you from getting ticked off at the fluff. Fred has such a wild ride and 2 guys chasing her, and she doesn't even know if she wants one :- With her best friend Jonas marrying her ex-boss Barb. As civil war threatens to sink the merfolk, Fred can't stop thinking about the landlubber she left behind. A fun a quick read, Fred has me laughing out loud.
Amazingly, one of the teenage vampire killers immediately develops a crush on her. All in all, a pretty good ending for the series, though I would enjoy further adventures of this trio. Seriously something lovers of the lighter side of a supernatural mystery series should buy as they would enjoy. Lots of surprises in this installment. She's sarcastic, caustic, and bad-tempered. The same as in the other two books in the series, Davidson keeps everything up beat and light-hearted through the entire story.
If you haven't read the others, you could skip them and just read this one. We see why he seems so distant and why he has been away so long isn't because he doesn't care, but because he doesn't feel he is worthy. What bothered me the most was that only the reader seemed to notice those red flags. We get introduced to Fred's father, Farrem, a traitor who was banished for wanting to overthrow the monarchy over 30 years ago. She's almost sex feet tall, has green hair, and grows a tail when in water. And Farrem calling everyone worm was kind of comical. If you haven't yet read MaryJanice Davidson's series about Fredrika the Mermaid, you don't know what you're missing.
Fred the Mermaid has taken the bait and chosen to date Artur, Prince of the Black Sea, over human marine biologist Thomas. If you haven't yet read MaryJanice Davidson's series about Fredrika the Mermaid, you don't know what you're missing. Her mother is pleased with the news that Betsy is back, although as a vampire, nevertheless, her stepmother is infuriated because Betsy has reclaimed her designer shoe collection. I know I'm being really vague but I don't want to give anything away! She was a little miffed that the Undersea Folk did not receive her warmly but more because people tend to dislike her after getting to know her which was fine with her , and not before which she thought was unfair. Then she is having to deal with all the media as the under-sea folk reveal themselves to the world and her traitorous father coming back with an apology. Throw in her long-lost father suddenly popping back into her life and her best friend planning his wedding and everything just gets more complicated.
