Booksprens reviews D.G. Valdron’s The Mermaid’s Tale

There is a rather stunning review of D.G. Valdron’s equally stunning novel, The Mermaid’s Taleover at Booksprens today.

You’ll have to go there to read the entire, lengthy review, but a few highlights are warranted here:

This novel is so much more then just a ‘Grimdark’, it was so freaking amazing and it was literally an emotional roller coaster.


It got to the point where I would have to put the book down and just cry hysterically for like ten minutes then try to blow my nose for an hour. I have never felt feels like this. Not even joking or exaggerating, imagine someone grabbing your heart and squeezing it for fun, until it explodes. That’s clearly what this book does to you.

And then:

You’ve never heard of this author?! Clearly you’ve been living under a rock….. So have I, don’t worry.

More spectacularly:

This novel is hauntingly beautiful, heart breaking & will leave you breathless. Told in first person perspective this mystery novel is a must read for people who are not highly sensitive to graphic violence and rape. The writing is sensational, especially when you take into consideration the fact that this is pretty much a debut novel. I didn’t come across any mistakes and found the writing to flow perfectly. The prose is definitely unique, I personally have never read anything like this novel before, its beautiful, lyrical, philosophical, flowery, wonderful & a journey of self discovery. I loved this story so much.

So, to celebrate the awesomeness of D.G. Valdron’s The Mermaid’s Tale, Kobo will be featuring it on their free specials from July 31 through August 6. And for Kindle users, Amazon will very likely price-match the promotion within 24 hours, so you’ll be able to purchase this stunning story in your favourite format.
