RT Rating

Davidson's trilogy about a cranky half-mermaid named Fred concludes on a high jinks-filled high note. No one does in-your-face-funny dialogue better than Davidson, whose sense of the absurd is top notch. This is vintage Davidson wackiness!

It would be tough for Fredrika Bimm's life to get any more complicated, but with her luck ... watch out. Now that the Undersea Folk have revealed themselves to the world, Fred has become the P.R. intermediary for King Mekkam and her almost-fiance, Prince Artur. Fred doesn't want to be in the media spotlight, so her temper is quite flammable. And her love life is complicated by the return of Dr. Thomas Pearson, who still gets her heart thumping.

A new wrinkle is the strange disappearance of a number of Undersea Folk and the sudden arrival of Farrem, Fred's biological merman father. Farrem was banished years ago for fomenting a coup. Has he changed his conniving ways?

The book wraps up the trilogy. Davidson does a good job with humor. Fred is a funny character and the secondary characters are also fun.

All the characters bring something to the story. The wacky antics begin at the start and end on the last page.
