He smiled at her, and the gesture sent shivers up her spine. She prayed that God would have mercy and strike her dead before she reached them. James! she shouted as loud as she could. there was no reply, Pearl turned and tried to run down the beach. Her wet skirt slowed her, and she fell to her knees several times. She kept struggling back up, though. She reached the end of the beach and turned around, running back the other way. Nothing. She headed back up the beach more slowly, inspecting the sand for footprints as well

Midnight Pearls - Debbie Viguie. As I've thought with the other Once Upon a Time books in the series, Midnight Pearls could be about twice as long.

Midnight Pearls - Debbie Viguie. Overall, I enjoyed the plot and the characters (though Faye and Kale were underdeveloped), but I think if it was given more time, the story could have developed even better. Everything came to a conclusion much too quickly and neatly.

I'm surprised this isn't listed as Children's, it's too full of holes to qualify as YA, much less hold the interest of an adult. Everything falls into place too easily in this story, including love at first sight.

It doesn't help that I just read The Changeling Sea byPatricia A. McKillip, which is a similar story, but told with exceptional skill.

This story is clean.

I love all things Little Mermaid (except maybe the traditional tragic ending) and I was eager to read Midnight Pearls, a retelling of the story. I've read a couple other books in the "Once Upon A Time" series so I knew to expect only the unexpected in these fairy tales. In this particular story, a fisherman catches a young girl in his net during a terrible storm. The child looks different but they raise and love her as their own. But Pearl is avoided and whispered about because she is so different. Her skin is so pale its nearly see through, her hair is silver, and her legs are much longer than other girls. But she has secret friend she met on the beach as a child. He is James, the royal prince and heir to throne. He sneaks away to meet her at the beach for years. When Pearl's peasant parents try to find her a fiancé and James father tries to force him to find a bride, their lives will forever change. The book offers plenty of turns and I figured a few of them out before their conclusion but it was still so charming and fun that it didn't detract from the story at all. I have read some reviews that say the book feels rushed toward the end. I didn't feel that it was rushed as in missing parts or that the author was just trying to get it over with. The story is complete and I was satisfied after the final page. However, I was disappointed at the short length. I feel the author missed an opportunity to flesh out the characters more thoroughly. They deserved it. Still this was a really good book. Read it and embrace the similarities AND differences from the version we all know and love.

Adored this retelling of the Little Mermaid. Was not expecting it to play how it did, but I love it regardless.

I personally loved the book, even though I agree with other reviewers who have stated that the characters were under-characterized, but I think their personalities still shone through, and although it did look like the love interest looked like it MIGHT have gone a different direction there were plenty of clear indications how it was going to happen.. including and especially the very first page in the book. So my hopes weren't dashed or any such thing. Yeah I would agree there were too many "chills going up the spine" phrases but it didn't detract from my enjoyment of the book. I thought it was well written, sweet and satisifying. And if you like that sort of thing (which I obviously do) then I would recommend it.

Great book! Hard to put down. Wish it was longer!

Having always loved Disney and Hans Christian Anderson versions of this story, I have only grown to love them more from this book. The characters were all simple and yet deep, and I lived the unexpected direction the author took the story! Overall, worth reading.

this retelling has been twisted so it is barely the same but its better than anything and i loved every bit of it. it was craftily but together. i love it and i bet so will you.
Midnight Pearls is a sweet story of an odd looking young girl found in the sea, by a fisherman, with a dark pearl clutched in her hand. He and his wife raise this girl as their own, loving her instantly despite her pale skin and hair, dark eyes, and general uneasiness on her own two feet. Pearl grows into a sweet young woman with a few insecurites. Her different looks make it hard for her to find a suitor. Which is just fine with Pearl due to the fact that she has feelings for her best friend, James. Who just happens to be the prince. However, she looks forward to her weekly meetings with him by the sea more than anything else. Pearl loves the ocean, but has always had nightmares warning her to never step foot into it. One day, James convinces her to go into the water on a rowboat. Pearl is wary, but filled with hope that she and James will finally be together. Unfortunately, fate has other plans.
I first found this book years ago and to this day Midnight Pearls is a fun read. It's a nice spin on a classic story. Some of the writing does seem a tad overpaced, but it doesn't detract from the story itself. Mermaids and witches, royalty and traitors, and mostly-true love. This book has everything you'd want in a lighthearted fantasy. Young, or not so young anymore, will enjoy this enchanting story.
