#BookReview: Sea Witch (Sea Witch #1) by Sarah Henning






Synopsis: 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.

My Review: After reading The Princess Will Save You, I wanted to try out Henning's other titles.  So first off was Sea Witch. Sadly this one just didn't work f
or me, this one just didn't work out at all. I found it very boring and ended up DNFing it. The start of it was so good but as I kept turning pages I just felt more and more bored. There was nothing to really keep me reading and I have to say that this one of the worst endings I have ever read.








Review

“This book reminded me of the magic inherently present in the best kinds of stories. Mystery and wonder abounds in SEA WITCH, and I fell in love with Evie’s sharpness and her strong sense of self. Prepare to be lost in these pages for hours on end.” (RenĂ©e Adieh, #1 New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author of The Wrath and The Dawn)

“Henning’s dive into Little Mermaid lore is equal parts dark and tantalizing. Like the sea it sings of, this story has a strong pull. I found myself unable to set it down!” (Ryan Graudin, award-winning author of Wolf by Wolf)

“All hail a new Queen of the Sea! Mystery, romance and revenge sweep you in—and there is magic on every page.” (Danielle Paige, New York Times bestselling author of Dorothy Must Die)

“Deftly transforming a fairy tale into a richly layered exploration of culture and relationships, Henning tells the origin story of the Sea Witch from Hans Christian Andersen’s ‘The Little Mermaid.’” (Publishers Weekly)

“Readers who gobble up every watery paranormal story will certainly enjoy this angst-drenched tale of forbidden love.” (Kirkus Reviews)

“This enjoyable read will entertain and be a great fit for collections where fairy-tale retellings are popular.” (School Library Journal)

“This spin on “The Little Mermaid” is full of plot twists and heart-in-throat action.
Fans of twisted fairy tales will find plenty to love.” (ALA Booklist)
