The mermaids in this book are sea creatures from the depths of the Mariana Trench, and they do not want to be a part of your world. They just want to eat the ship full of scientists that have come to their territory seeking answers. Mira Grant masterfully brings to life (and, in many cases, death) a diverse cast of scientists and mermaids in this extremely well-researched, science fiction/horror take on mermaids. Read if you want to be terrified of the sea forever.
