unced as a crossover between Project Runway and Mulan I was a bit skeptical. Mostly because I had a bit of a hard time combining those two thoughts. But I love the story of Mulan, and the idea was super interesting so nevertheless I wanted to read this book. I sort of knew what I was expecting when I went in — but I ended up really liking it.

‘ve been waiting forever to read this book. It had libraries, demons, magic and what have you. It seems like it would be the perfect book for me, so I was very excited to start reading it. But, at the same time I was worried that it was going to fall short of my expectations. That’s always the fear with books that are hyped up — that they aren’t as good as you think they’re going to be.

I was excited about this book — A The Little Mermaid retelling? Sign me up! I didn’t know what to expect, except for the fact that the main character was to be the future Ursula. I didn’t have too many expectations other than it had magic and mermaids. There is little more that will please me than that.
