The Deep is an interesting take on mermaid mythology, where mermaids came from pregnant women who were thrown overboard slave ships. In their society, a historian stores all the memories of their people and shares them with everyone once a year and then takes them back. This is so that everyone can live without the weight of the memories.

I did enjoy this story but at times felt lost and many aspects of it could have been expanded for a more full story. The part that I enjoyed the most was Yetu's time on the surface when you got to see the character development. I wish there had been more character development throughout the rest of the story because it gave the general impression to me that this story was complete and still needed to be fleshed out.

I did enjoy this and would recommend it to someone that is interested in unusual mermaid stories.
