ChrisAir Reviews “The Mermaid Astronaut”

“The Mermaid Astronaut” is a delightful mix of The Little Mermaid and Ursula K. Le Guin’s “Semley’s Necklace”. Its main character, Essarala, is unsurprisingly a mermaid who becomes a crew member of a spaceship. At its core, the story explores the interaction between personal ambition and its consequences, both wonderful and tragic.
