Avery Roe wants only to claim her birthright as the witch of Prince Island and to make the charms that have kept the island's sailors safe at sea for generations, but instead she is held prisoner by her mother in a magic-free life of proper manners and respectability.
Avery thinks escape is just a matter of time, but when she has a harrowing nightmare, she can see what it means: She will be killed. She will be murdered. And she's never been wrong before.
Desperate to change her future, Avery finds a surprising ally in Tane—a tattooed harpoon boy with magic of his own, who moves her in ways she never expected. But as time runs out to unlock her magic and save herself, Avery discovers that becoming a witch requires unimaginable sacrifice.
Avery walks the knife's edge between choice and destiny in Kendall Kulper's sweeping debut: the story of one girl's fight to survive the rising storm of first love and family secrets.
So this was our choice for Nov. I hope you guys loved it more than I did! The next book up for Dec. is
Walk on Earth a Stranger (The Gold Seer Trilogy #1)
by Rae Carson and I so can't wait!
Kendall Kulper grew up in New Jersey and currently lives in Boston with her husband, daughter, and dog. She graduated from Harvard University, where she studied history and literature. Thanks to Salt & Storm and Drift & Dagger, she knows more about nineteenth-century whaling than she ever imagined.
Ive had this one forever. It seems that I had it as a UK ARC copy and now as a US hardback via a trade. Well I have to say I had forgotten that I had this as that UK copy when I traded to this hardback. And well it didnt work out so well for me. The beginning of this book is so boring and the ending left me in tears. So this one although not for me is def. for those who love historical ya and whales. So if you love those two things give this one a try.
Just so you know this is how the ending made me feel.
