Trailer ↠´ Sea Witch PDF by ↠´ Sarah Henning I was really torn about this book I didn t LOVE it but it kept me entertained and intrigued enough to push through until the end It was the last hundred pages or so that really made this book great Besides that, it probably would ve been a solid 2 5 stars for me.
I am a HUGE mermaid fan I love everything and anything mermaid and The Little Mermaid is and always will be my favorite fairytale That being said, my expectations were very high considering I haven t actually read a mermaid book that I loved and The Little Mermaid deserved a retelling nothing short of perfection Though Sea Witch didn t reach those expectations, I did find myself enjoying this origin story of the infamous Ursula.
The overall story itself moved a bit slow and I never really connected with the characters To be completely honest, I didn t really like t this was just.
not good.
reasons why this book did not work for me there was no plot up until the last 50ish pages the characters were flat with zero development the two male characters were completely interchangeable the romances were the worst cases of insta love I ve ever seen when the plot finally picked up all the characters became different people out of nowhereoverall this book was just flat out boring 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 DeadEver 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 AfterBut 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 5 Stars She knew that with power, the bravery to act would come.
I m just going to say I hoped and prayed this was going to be good Ever since I read To Kill a Kingdom I was hook line and sinker for any form of a re telling of The Little Mermaid I say that but this is the first one I ve read since then Anyway I m going to be frank, this is a real slow burn, but I loved that It really builds up to what is coming You get the back story of a specific day in the past and it goes backwards and forwards in time.
As previously mentioned, the build up for me was glorious, it had me second guessing everything, trying to dissect certain things, now I m not saying that I didn t see some things coming, because I did however i Magic was barter the right words, actions, potions for the right resultWell, that was unexpected.
Sea Witch is marketed as a villain origin story, namely the Sea Witch from The Little Mermaid Being the weird kid in the murder corner, I eagerly requested on Edelweiss, thinking it d be a dark and transgressive retelling along the lines of Marissa Meyer s Heartless or Fairest What I got instead was a quiet, rather literary novel about friendship and social class The story does largely unfold the same way as the original tale a mermaid saves a prince, then goes on land to try to win his heart in four days If she fails, she ll be turned to sea form A human witch called Evelyn narrates the novel, with third person chapters recounting the past The mermaid Annamette bears a striking resemblance to Evelyn s best friend who drowned four years ago and she naturally You can find this review and other non spoilery reviews The Book PrescriptionActual Rating 3.
5 starsIT S A PERFECT NIGHT FOR BURNING WITCHESI learned to go into books without high expectations because the end result will be better whatever it is But The little mermaid retelling I am lying if I say that I didn t raise up the bar a bit I recently read To kill a kingdom and that book was very good, it is getting much attention and for The little mermaid fans, it is actually a very good retelling Now I don t know if this can be called a retelling because that was only found after like 80% of the story Actually this was the biggest problem in this series nothing pretty much happens till 70% of the story Now this is not a bad book, but it starts out good and then things start to get slow and there is dragging till the above mention Video Review Sea Witch is one of those books that grew on me and with every page that I read.
I started it with excitement because I love The Little Mermaid and Ursula as a villain but also some hesitation because villain origin stories can be repetitive and unoriginal But what I got out of Sea Witch was incredibly specialI could tell her that it s like the tang of summer wine and the sound of arrival bells as a new ship docks Like the scent of salt and limes and the tinkle of a boy s eyes just before a kiss in the moonlightThis is also one of those books that I have a super hard time doing a review for because it s one that just took my heart by storm I have a huge emotional connection to it that is hard to put into words.
Not just that, it did exactly what I wanted from a villain origin story It had some twists and turns and This story just shoved me off the edge of Plot Twist cliff and I m still falling tbh It was thoroughly not what I expected and the beginning had me slowly drowningbut that ending THAT ENDING The plot twists The vengeance The magic The stabbing It was so freaking good I do admit I chaffed at the beginning Like I went in expecting a Sea Witch origin story, but we get Evie, who is the actual sweetest Hufflepuff witchshe s a mistrusted outcast, but also BFF with the crown prince They re just friiiiends thoyes I have heard that one before And then the story unravelled this slow romance centric plot, where mostly they just talked and participated in a festival and had a love square that was very polite then things went down Obviously I won t s

I decided to make my own painted edges They are not great, but I love them I used purple to go with the purple in her eyes Book Poster BelowA million stars for the cover and the poster I got in one of my book boxes and got laminated I liked the story I didn t love it to death as I m not a big fan of The Little Mermaid But who cares, it was good enough for now and I m glad plenty love it Happy Reading Mel 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
