Book Review: Sailor Twain: Or: The Mermaid in the Hudson by Mark Siegel

My Rating: ★★★

Genre: Fantasy; Graphic Novel

Goodreads Plot: One hundred years ago. On the foggy Hudson River, a riverboat captain rescues an injured mermaid from the waters of the busiest port in the United States. A wildly popular—and notoriously reclusive—author makes a public debut. A French nobleman seeks a remedy for a curse. As three lives twine together and race to an unexpected collision, the mystery of the Mermaid of the Hudson deepens.

My Thoughts: Graphic novels aren’t really my thing. But I won this book from a giveaway and it was really pretty, so I decided to give it a try. The story was an interesting take on the temptation of the Siren’s Song. The drawings were pretty and the plot was entertaining. If there is a sequel eventually, I might be interested in picking it up just to see where the end of the story takes the characters. If you like graphic novels and/or mermaids, this book might be for you!
