The Salt Grows Heavy: A Review
Expected publication May 2, 2023
I absolutely adore mermaids, and when I saw the premise of this novella, I was super excited. The story itself is made up of dark fantasy and lots of gore, and I truly enjoyed it. I wish there would have been more backstory on the mermaid herself and maybe a bit more actual mermaid action, but other than that, it was a fantastic read.
The novella is filled to the brim with lots of poetic prose, which can seem a bit overdone at times. I noticed this in other people's reviews as well, but maybe that's just Khaws way of writing. Either way, I enjoyed this short book and would love to see more of this mermaid and
her plague doctor.
