BTW, I liked it so much, I decided that I needed to create a "Recommended" reading list. Its the first read on it!

Nice tight story. Great action.  Love the description.  I feel like the ending needs a twist. Maybe he leaves the coin behind. That he has used up his share of luck?

I can't tell you the last time I read s story that felt like old west, with a touch of magic. The mermaid really chose her own carrier I'll bet and jake truly was lucky she still wanted to be his. Loved the heating up and hitting the ground. Great details. Fun story!!

I love this story, how  slow building and unpredictable it is. Love the descriptions as well. Good job. :-D
