Awakening - Kitty Thomas Interesting appropriation of "The Little Mermaid" with a bdsm tilt. Very gentle, this tale is short and just the beginning--Nerina's transformation to human. Heavier and darker elements are not explored. As such I felt the story was somewhat incomplete, but I'm not a fan of short stories. The otherworld quality that I found in Thomas's "Tender Mercies" is present here--for me it distances me from the subjects even with the partial first person POV.
