What if Ariel had never defeated Ursula? It's been five years since the infamous sea witch defeated the little mermaid... and took King Triton's life in the process. Ariel is now the voiceless queen of Atlantica, while Ursula runs Prince Eric's kingdom on land. But when Ariel discovers that her father might still be alive, she finds herself returning to a world—and a prince—she never imagined she would see again.

    Gr 7 Up-The film version of Disney's The Little Mermaid ended with happily ever after. But what if Ariel never married Eric or defeated Ursula? In this twisted tale, Braswell has taken the beloved characters and written a what-if story that takes wild turns. A wiser Ariel returns to life in Atlantica alone under the sea with her sisters and sea creature friends-Scuttle, Flounder, Sebastian, and Threll. Prince Eric is now married to Ursula, the sea witch disguised as princess Vanessa using Ariel's voice. Ariel's father, King Triton, is being held captive by the demonic sea witch, and now it's up to the little mermaid to rescue him and get revenge and her lost love. An underwater sea battle ensues. Braswell has written an action-packed read that teens will not be able to put down. Fans of the previous twisted Disney tales will devour this captivating installment full of humor. VERDICT Purchase where retellings and mermaid fantasies are popular.-Annisha Jeffries, Cleveland Public Library

    Braswell (Once upon a Dream, 2016, etc.) picks up this epic fairy tale five years after Ariel and Eric lose to Ursula. Imagine that Eric and Vanessa do get married: Ursula's nautilus shell necklace never breaks, freeing Ariel's voice, and since she cannot sing, Eric remains entranced by Vanessa. King Triton steps in for his daughter and becomes Ursula's prisoner. Ariel returns, mute, to Atlantica to rule in his stead, believing her father to be dead. When Scuttle the sea gull gets a lead that King Triton is alive, Ariel returns to the surface in hopes of finding her father and restoring him to the throne. Nothing goes to plan, but with the help of her friends she attempts to put an end to Ursula's evil plans. Ariel and Eric are still ridiculously moony-eyed over one another, and some details are somewhat far-fetched even for a fairy tale, but lyrical nods to the music in the movie as well as quippy dialogue (and the nostalgia factor) make this a magical read. The characters are fleshed out with more background, showing how their experiences have shaped them. With one minor exception, all characters are assumed white. A fun, quick read that returns Disney fans to a world of characters they love. (Fiction. 13-18)
