    1 thought on “Silence: Little Mermaid Retold

    1. I love The Little Mermaid and this was such an amazing retelling. Carlton takes a classic fairy tale and spins a totally different tale. Kept me captivated and was a bit bummed when it ended. I wanted more! My Rating: 5 stars

    2. And I am officially up to date with this wonderful series! And once again this was an amazing, wonderful quick read! I loved this story, it was perfect! The characters were incredible and the plot is well written and well balanced between love, secrets and mystery So it begins with a shipwreck that Margareta is on, she is the only survivor, however she also saves a man whose name she knows not. But in order to save him she uses her mythical abilities, who no one knows of, not even her father, Ma [...]

    3. naughtiness 3*One of the very first books I've read by Demelza and so very glad I did, so much in fact I will be most definitely Collecting the others in the series.As always I never give spoilers however I will say this has been one of the most beautiful retelling of the story I've read. Very cleverly done and very much a different take on it than I've seen. Cant wait to read more and hope the characters appear in more of the books, Thank you Demelza for writing it 💖

    4. This is a sweet retelling of the Little mermaid with a slight twist to link it to a previous retelling of the twelve dancing princess. It has been a while since I read the original fairy tale but I did enjoy this version of it.

    5. Margareta is a mermaid or as her father calls her a siren. She is on a ship headed back home when it gets struck by lightning and sinks. As she is rescuing herself, she runs across one lone survivor, a squire to the prince on board named Eric. She pulls him into turn boat and they talk during the night their boat overturns and she has to transform into a mermaid to save him. She brings him back to her father's island and promises to get help. Eric comes to and quickly finds a ship home to tell h [...]

    6. A classic fairy tale is reimagined by the talented Demelza Carlton, where dreams just might come true and loyalty is tested. Just like in the original stories, any decisions made could change the future of individuals for whom I really found appealing. The mythical creatures that are closely connected to the sea have always fascinated me, and the author certainly brings her version of Little Mermaid to life in a most clever way.When a terrible storm causes a catastrophic event on the ship bringi [...]

    7. In Silence, Demelza Carlton has created a clever retelling of the Little Mermaid. The story and characters are familiar, with a couple of intense twists.Margareta is a mermaid (her father says she is a siren), or at least part mermaid. The story begins with a shipwreck in a storm. Margareta saves Prince Erik’s life. She goes for help, but when she returns he is gone. Margareta’s father is Master Nicholas, master of Beacon Isle. She has twelve brothers. Her brothers have been cursed and turne [...]

    8. This book felt a little stiff at times, like the story didn't know where to go. Prince Erik was a little too good to be true, but in the end he did have some dark motives. Margareta did not understand her siren nature, and kept herself away from the prince. She was way into self sacrifice, a little overboard from my point of view. The Silence was to save her unworthy brothers. If a witch tells you to go and find a woman who can love you, don't go terrorizing the village girls, you may just end u [...]

    9. Fairy tale romanceI don't read a lot of romance. But I do like fairy tales. They seem to be very popular in several genres currently. They have the basic story which so many of us are familiar while providing fertile grounds for adaptation.This short story ( about 80 pages) is a retelling of the Little Mermaid tale. It is also part of Demelza Carlton's fairytale series. You don't absolutely need to have read the previous stories in the series ( I haven't) to enjoy this one (I did) but there are [...]

    10. This was a great story. It is better if you've read Revel: 12 Dancing Princesses first. This book builds on that story. We meet Margareta, sister of the 12 cursed brothers from Revel, and part siren. When we meet her she's on a damaged ship in the middle of a storm. After the ship sinks, she helps save the only other passenger that wasn't killed, Erik. Erik disappears and years pass. I hated the way her father treated her, like she wasn't important and certainly not loved. The abuse she put up w [...]

    11. Margareta is a mermaid and she had saved Prince Erik from a shipwreck some years ago. In the intervening years she had agreed with the Master of Beacon Isle that she will save his sons from a curse by staying silent. However when Prince Erik appears having been searching for her she is limited in her communication with him by her vow of silence. Can she still communicate with him without words and can they come to the right conclusion for them both?Nice retelling of the Little Mermaid. I liked t [...]

    12. I receive this for honest review. This is a retold love story of the little mermaid. I enjoy this a lot! It was a delight to read. I enjoy it very much reading it. I love reading retold story of Princess that I have watch growing up. The hole new view of the Little Mermaid was so much fun. I love all the characters and love the main character. With every page every chapter I was reading I was falling in love. It like watching them grow up. The setting and theme was just perfect. The writing was [...]

    13. I LOVED this retelling of the Little Mermaid story, which I'd always found a bit sappy. This version is anything but, however, and is much more to my liking, and I loved seeing the characters from other books in the series making an appearance too. I won't go into details of the story - I hate spoilers and you can get a good idea from the book description - but I'd highly recommend it to all adults who like fairytale retellings and stories with a twist of romance, magic and a "happy ever after". [...]

    14. My third read from author Demelza Carlton was an interesting spin & expansion/re-telling of the Little Mermaid fairy tale. The thought of reading a “fairy tale” didn’t particularly appeal to me but I’m glad I did. Extremely well written, the characters, well developed. I’m a character reader, I get into the characters. Who and what they are. Why they do the things they do. The things that make the reader get invested into the characters and thereby the story. By the end of this boo [...]

    15. Found this book for free on ; this is my honest review.- I love the way the author incorporates the original story with her own ideas. Yes I said this for the previous book, but it's still true here.- It's better to read "Revel: Twelve Dancing Princess retold" before this one but the author gives enough details that you won't feel left out if you don't.- There are enough pages to see: 1. The friendship develop between the two women; 2. The maturity of the H/h both; 3. The heaviness of the sacrif [...]

    16. A story of Margareta and Erik that we know as Queen and King in book 2 - Awaken. It's also a conclusion to what had happened to 12 princes form book 3 - Revel.A strong willed girl that is a siren needs to sacrifice her voice for her brothers that are under the course. Will she manage to stay silent for Long enough? What did her brothers to deserve such fate?This is not a normal Little mermaid story form Disney. This one touch also topic of redemption and changing yourself in order to deserve it. [...]

    17. I thoroughly enjoyed this fairytale retelling of The Little Mermaid. The characters were engaging and well developed. I liked the continuation of characters from Revel and that characters and settings from different retellings in other novels appear throughout the series. The writing flowed naturally and conveyed imagination that set it apart from other retellings. I took off one star because I wanted more of the story. I felt like it was rushed and wish it had been longer.

    18. I am so in love with these fairytale retold books! Here’s my little rant….why is it always a woman that gives up part of herself in order to save ( majority of the time) undeserving family? With that said, totally love the resolution of this book. Truly surprised me and honestly would not have wanted a deferent ending! Great characters, impeccable writing, a book worthy of a wonderful recommendation!

    19. Margareta, a mermaid, is headed home on a ship when it gets struck by lightning and sinks. Eric, a prince and the only other survivor from the ship was saved by Margareta. Silence is Little Mermaid with an enchanted twist. This is a short story and one of books in the fairy tale series by Demelza Carlton. This was my first book by this author that I've read but I already have the first four books in this series on my kindle and I can't wait to read them all.

    20. Silence: Little Mermaid Retold (Romance a Medieval Fairytale, #5)While this was nor my favorite Fairy Tale it was an interesting retelling. The characters are well defined and intriguing. The story was fun and familiar. Well done! I was given this book as an ARC in hopes I would write an honest review.

    21. This author does a fun, entertaining job of retelling fairy tales of old. I found pleasure in the two I have read so far and intend to keep reading her versions of them. The characters, the setting, the storyline itself are all enjoyable! These are a refreshing alternative to some of the rest of what's currently available in the world of reading!

    22. The evil princes from Revel get their comeuppance, and for once, the heroine isn't dumb as a stick. I quite liked Erik and Margareta in this one. And the child who will be the heroine of the next book was pretty cute, too.These books are like popcorn, though, light and airy and very easy to read. I enjoy them, but I don't feel like I got a whole lot out of it.

    23. A beautiful retelling!I only left off a star because I want more of the story now! In Demelza Carlton's fairy tale world, everything is interconnected, but can also be read as stand alone tales. We find the mermaid in this story has powerful magic of her own, maybe too powerful. And her Prince begins the story as a squire. Will they find a way to be together?

    24. Wonderfully writtenThe little mermaid with a twist. A story told very different then what I remember, however in a way it was even better. In a family of heartless and bad men she found friendship and love in others that made her the better person. Even with all she sacrificed for her father and brothers they managed to bring about their own demise. Wonderfully written.

    25. Interesting retelling. This story is Silence: Little Mermaid Retold written by Demelza Carlton. It’s a twist on the classic fairy tale with somewhat of a gruesome side story. The story seemed too short for all of the details but still an enjoyable read. I received a complimentary copy and chose voluntarily to leave this review.

    26. Haven't been super entranced by the Romance a Medieval Fairytale books I've read so far, and this was similar; a little boring, while also not dwelling enough on the good parts, and not being entirely kid friendly. I prefer retellings like Cinder where I can get engrossed but not have gratuitous romance with strange settings that aren't even explained well.

    27. Great read!!I really liked this retelling of the little mermaid. I was greatly surprised to see the crows from the "Twelve dancing princess" make an appearance in this book, but they melted into this book seamlessly. I look forward to the next book within this series.

    28. This is another book that I wasn’t sure I would like. The author made enough changes from the fairy tale that I kept wondering what was going to happen next. My strong woman is here and doing what she thinks is right. Loved it.

    29. IngeniousTo remake the Little Mermaid and have her voluntary not use her voice to save her brothers is devilish. Changing the brothers from swans to ravens is just perfect. Then the ending? Well, I won't spoil that. Please keep it up. I love these books.

    30. Well, well, well. How Carlton has managed to link the different fairytales together in the different books is actually incredible. I have been noticing this but this one made it clear. I think I should have read them in orderThis one is strong and powerful and wonderful. Great retelling.
