Walking on Knives by Maya Chabbra: Mini ARC Review!

I wanted to love this a lot more than I actually did. It started out strong but the story got a bit mixed up in the middle and it was all around difficult for me to feel attached to any of the characters. I did enjoy that it was a retelling of the Little Mermaid with an f/f pairing and the dark side of the story as its focal point.

Of course, its a novelette so I couldn’t have asked for more but I still wanted to know more; especially the backstory behind the sea witch and her sister. I felt like there was a lot missing that we didn’t get to explore which is a bummer.

There is also loads of triggering content such as the lack of consent and implied sexual assault and rape.

I did enjoy the ending though, even if it was bit confusing.
