This was a nice little short story about a cursed merman shifter and a prince. It did a good job with the world building, but unfortunately it lacked in the romance department.
I liked the description of Seree's family, his magical knives, as well as the sea-influenced dialogues:
"The reason he has no interest in sanding me-"
"Language!" Seree snapped.
But I missed some relationship development. The MCs where hardly together on-page. The ending was also very abrupt.
But if Megan Derr decides one day to turn this into a full novel, I would definitely read it.
