Learning about Kraken
I really enjoyed this short because it involved an older woman (not super old) as the strong FMC. And she studies Kraken in Italy. Plus an old flames gets involved; all in a race against time to save a woman that Judith loves as a mother. Such a great fantastic story and you get to learn about a kraken lagoon… happy diving.
This is a worthy addition to the sub-genre. I am eager to read more of Anne Renwick’s work.
A great short trip to Venice as it appears in Anne Renwick’s world.
