The Girl Who Fell Beneath the Sea by Axie Oh
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This is a lighthearted Korean fairytale, told as a light adventure under the sea with the dead, kept as a Sea God's Bride but as a living spirit.
There can be no comparison of this story without pointing at the Spirited Away movie.
All told, this is a longer adventure but without Granny or NoFace. There are threads of fate, a lot of mythological creatures, and a very YA feel that definitely skews to a very Disney romance at the end.
If that sounds like what you're looking for, then don't hesitate. It's just a tad off the beaten path but has all the usual goodies of modern YA.
This was a fairly good book and I had no real complaints except that I guess I prefer a bit more spice in my diet. That richness of flavor.
I guess I've been spoiled by other SilkPunk fiction. I guess I wanted more density and history.
