Moon Child: Volume 3 Reviews
This 3rd instalment of this 13 volume sci-fi mermaid saga draws together some very interesting ideas: we have the springboard of The Little Mermaid, The idea about fish changing sex to spawn, The threat of Armaggeddon from Revelation, the Chernobyl disaster (which in terms of the story hasn't happened yet)mixed in with two love triangles and a sci-fi plot about the possible extinction of the mermaid race. Can I just say WOW. I am deeply impressed how this story weaves together so many different threads and manages to sustain my interest.Benjamin (going by the name of Jimmy) is one of three sons of renegade mermaid Seira. By the spring of next year he has to become a woman mate and save the mermaid race. His destined mate is a merman called Shonach, the son of the guy Seira should have married instead of falling in love with a human.Although Jimmy likes Shonach, he adores cantankerous Russian dancer Art who is still hung up on his bitchy ex Holly. Shonach has a love interest too in mermaid Noera who wants him to forget Benjamin and mate with her.In the background are twins Teruto and Seth come to earth to protect Benjamin. If he dies one of them can turn into a female and spawn in his stead, but only if Benjamin dies. If he choses Art there's nothing the twins can do and the mermaid population will be doomed. Benjamin keeps having Biblical apocalyptic visions about the star of wormwood falling and a factory burning. He's stunned when Art tells him Wormwood is Chernobyl in Russian and an actual place....As a reader of course we know what will happen and that there is no escape from this fate. There's also a supernatural threat hovering - the sea witch who preys on weak mermaids, and probably had a hand in poor Seira's fate (just like in Anderson's Little mermaid story).At the end of this volume, Seth is struck down and Teruto will do anything to save him including it seems brave the sea witch. So it may be Teruto and not Benjamin who will damn the mermaid population!This is an absolutely riveting tale with plenty of angst, drama and twists and turns. The artwork is beautiful, although there isn't much mermaid action in this particular volume. Hopefully there will be more fish tails in the next instalment.
