Review:

"Lavish...comprehensive...What more could a young, fantasy marine biologist desire besides, perhaps, an actual mermaid?"
--Bookloons

"The Secret History of Mermaids and Creatures of the Deep is a MUST. It is by far one of the most visually appealing and engaging books I have seen in a long time."
