Goodreads Choice Award-winning poet and USA TODAY bestselling author Amanda Lovelace presents the mermaid’s voice returns in this one — the third and final installment in her “women are some kind of magic” series, featuring a foreword from Lang Leav and 13 guest poems from leading voices in poetry such as Nikita Gill, KY Robinson, and Orion Carloto.
The mermaid is known for her siren song, luring bedroom-eyed sailors to their demise. However, beneath these misguided myths are tales of escapism and healing, which Lovelace weaves throughout this empowering collection of poetry, taking you on a journey from the sea to the stars. They tried to silence her once and for all, but the mermaid’s voice returns in this one.
I’ve read all of this author’s books and have never been disappointed. They always bring tears to my eyes, even sometime sobs. This one was no exception, it was extremely beautiful and moving. I looked forward to this installment for what seemed like forever and was beyond excited to get approved to read it early.
This book was so empowering and really made me want to take back my voice. I’m usually the type of person who hates conflict and kind of goes in a hole instead. After reading this one I really want to change that, I wasn’t to take my voice and actually use it.
If you love poetry or are just getting into it I highly suggest this set of books. It is very easy to follow and makes a huge impact. Another thing I love is the covers, they are perfectly simple and outstanding at the same time.
