The surface breaks: a reimagining of The little mermaid

O'Neill, Louise, 1985- author; Andersen, H. C. (Hans Christian), 1805-1875

Deep beneath the sea off the cold Irish coast, Gaia is a young mermaid who dreams of being human - but at what terrible price? Hans Christian Andersen's dark original fairy tale is reimagined through a searing feminist lens, with the stunning, scalpel-sharp writing and world building that has won Louise her legions of devoted fans. A book with the darkest of undercurrents, storytelling at its most spellbinding
