Eel’s Reverence by Marian Allen
When elderly priest of Micah, “Aunt” Libby, goes on a Final Wandering, she’s accosted and then befriended by an amphibious mugger. The area known as The Eel is infested with worse than minor criminals–it’s under the thumbs of a coalition of greedy, brutal priests. Aunt Libby is a frail barrier to stand between peace and violence, and the worst violence may not come from her enemies…but from her friends
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Mermayds and humans oh my!
A great story with conflict, peace vs violence and an excellent look into human (and not so human) character.
Love Marian’s writing style and voice. If you haven’t checked out her new book Force of Habit you better go read it too!
Buy it at Barnes & Noble for Nook.
Sounds like another book to add to my TBR pile.
Thanks for the stellar review, Jennifer!
And thank YOU, Angela! I hope you enjoy it. 🙂
