Sea Witchby Published 31 Jul 2018
|Publisher||Katherine Tegen Books|
Everyone knows what happens in the end.
A mermaid, a prince, a true love’s kiss.
But before that young siren’s tale, there were three friends.
One feared, one royal, and one already dead.
Ever since her best friend, Anna, drowned, Evie has been an outcast in her small fishing town. A freak. A curse. A witch.
A girl with an uncanny resemblance to Anna appears offshore and, though the girl denies it, Evie is convinced that her best friend actually survived. That her own magic wasn’t so powerless after all. And, as the two girls catch the eyes—and hearts—of two charming princes, Evie believes that she might finally have a chance at her own happily ever after.
But her new friend has secrets of her own. She can’t stay in Havnestad, or on two legs, unless Evie finds a way to help her. Now Evie will do anything to save her friend’s humanity, along with her prince’s heart—harnessing the power of her magic, her ocean, and her love until she discovers, too late, the truth of her bargain.
The rise of Hans Christian Andersen’s iconic villainess is a heart-wrenching story of friendship, betrayal, and a girl pushed beyond her limits—to become a monster.
"Sea Witch" Reviews
I wasn’t sure about this when I first started reading it, but I’m so glad I carried on! Around the 40pg mark, I became hooked on the plot. It ended up being hard to put down. Very unique take on the classic story of The Little Mermaid. I think people are going to enjoy this one!
I need this
That is all.
So this is from Ursula's POV, but who cares?! Villains are so much more interesting than heroes anyway.. Kidding :P
OMFG, that synopsis!!! I haven't even read the book yet and I can already feel the heartbreak to come. And though I am never a fan of cover/character models, I don't terribly mind this one. I think it fits well. But anyways back to the synopsis, I'm crying already.
October 2017 --> May 2018 --> July 2018
Wait, this went from October 2017 to May 2018? OMG why!!!?
While I am happy the title is no longer Heartless (so as not to be confused with the Marissa Meyer book coming out this year), I feel the title Sea Witch is just a bit...lackluster? On the nose? Idk but I hope the official title gets changed again prior to publication
EDIT: they changed it! Ha, called it.
Has no one talked about how this title is probably a bad idea considering Marissa Meyer's Queen of Hearts story is also called Heartless
