You may think you know how the fairytale goes: a mermaid comes to shore and weds the prince. But what the fables forget is that mermaids have teeth. And now, her daughters have devoured the kingdom and burned it to ashes. On the run, the mermaid is joined by a mysterious plague doctor with a darkness of their own. Deep in the eerie, snow-crusted forest, the pair stumble upon a village of ageless children who thirst for blood, and the three “saints” who control them. The mermaid and her doctor must embrace the cruelest parts of their true nature if they hope to survive.

Book Review: Aliens and Ice Cream
In this half horror, half sci-fi novel by Michael James, the characters start off in a normal suburban neighborhood, where we learn about both teenagers as well as their parents. There is a bit of tension between many of the characters, but nothing compared to the tension that unfolds when these giant pods come from a hole in the sky and start murdering all of the humans they see. Supposedly, they are aliens from another planet, and the characters are only able to save themselves by staying indoors. Unfortunately, Heather, Matt, and Matt's little sister are trapped in a tree house, with no food and no water... Will they be able to do something about the Aliens before they starve to death?
