Monstrous Beauty Reviews
"Dilemmas and choices are complex, providing much food for thought. Not so much romance as suspense, this stylish fantasy mesmerizes." - Kirkus Reviews
"[One of] of the most compelling (and gory) mermaid offerings....Elizabeth Fama's Monstrous Beauty...is by far the most sophisticated but also the most mature in its treatment of the consuming loves and violent deaths wrought by mer-folk." Meghan Cox Gurdon, The Wall Street Journal
"The alternating narrative device can make for stutters in the momentum, and there are stretches ... where the plot trudges. The horror and humanity are adroitly handled, however, and Fama never lapses into cliché." - Publishers Weekly
