Publisher's Summary

Goodreads Choice Award-winning poet and USA Today best-selling author Amanda Lovelace presents the mermaid’s voice returns in this one - the third and final installment in her women are some kind of magic series, featuring a foreword from Lang Leav and 13 guest poems from leading voices in poetry such as Nikita Gill, KY Robinson, and Orion Carloto.

The mermaid is known for her siren song, luring bedroom-eyed sailors to their demise. However, beneath these misguided myths are tales of escapism and healing, which Lovelace weaves throughout this empowering collection of poetry, taking you on a journey from the sea to the stars. They tried to silence her once and for all, but the mermaid’s voice returns in this one. 

Guest poems narrated by Janina Edwards, Soneela Nankani, and Emily Woo Zeller.

the mermaid's voice returns in this one

I find the Lovelace’s work feels extremely… repetitive. The Mermaid’s Voice felt like she was trying to relieve the magic of The Princess Saves Herself.This instalment felt like a rehash of the previous collections. No poem stood out, and I’ve seen all these themes from this author before. Everything was just slightly paraphrased.The majority of the poems didn’t really resonate with me. This truly felt like the final book in a trilogy that had run out of steam. I’m all for deeply exploring a theme, especially since this is clearly something very personal and important to Amanda, ut only when you have enough unique content to justify continuing to delve into it.

Mediocre at Best

So far I have read all of her books in the women are some kind of magic series. Nothing beats the Princess Saves Herself in this One. I don't like the Witch Doesn't Burn in this One and the Mermaid's Voice Returns in this One as much.
