Novella Review: Walking on Knives – Maya Chhabra

Walking on KnivesThe Little Mermaid makes a bargain with the sea-witch, in which she loses her voice and must walk through eternal pain, in order to have a life with the Prince she loves.


Why this book?: I had heard of it before seeing it on NetGalley, and remembered hearing about it being an F/F retelling. The premise reminded me so much of The Seafarer’s Kiss, that I requested the e-ARC and jumped straight into this tale.

I would like to thank the people at Less Than Three Press for allowing me to have an ARC of this book via NetGalley.
