This book is a selection of five short stories. The first story is about people hunting a dragon and alternates between the POV of the people and the POV of the dragon. The second story is about someone hunting a werewolf, again alternating between POVs. The third story follows a mermaid who discovers the seas are being destroyed by humans. The next story was an eerie job interview scenario. The last story was about a woman marrying for money and getting more than she bargained for.
My favourite story was the one about the mermaid. I loved how it was based on things that are happening to the oceans right now and how it brought these issues to the forefront. It was also really cool how part of it was based on real cave drawings! I found all five stories to have a unique turn of events which was really interesting to see. Additionally, the fourth story really intrigued me and I wished it had been a bit longer so I could find out what was going on! I particularly liked the latter four stories as I felt that they were the most unique and interesting to me personally.
Overall, I really enjoyed this book! It was filled with sinister turns of events much like Roald Dahl’s short stories were, mixed with supernatural features.
If you like fantasy or paranormal stories and particularly short stories, I would highly recommend reading this!
