I absolutely loved this book!
The amazing spin on a well known tale (and also my favorite Disney movie btw.) had me reading through the night.
The story had me laughing, crying, throwing the book at the wall…several times. I was completely engrossed.
The story of a three friends and a tragic end had me in tears. I highly recommend this read to anyone.
For a YA read this is completely suitable for anyone.
Love, friendship, revenge and betrayal are all extremely predominant themes in this book. Which is awesome.
“Don’t grant all the prince’s requests, darling girl. Men are always asking for more than they should.”Sarah Henning, Sea Witch
Those poor unfortunate souls
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.
When Anna drowned, Evie found herself even more outcasted than before. Her only real friend, a prince, helps her return to society to some extent. Her crush, his cousin, the only other person who bothers to talk to her..
“Everything about love is dangerous.”Sarah Henning, Sea 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. 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. The bond they form has Evie feeling more and more like she has been given a second chance with Anna.
“Perhaps fantasties are only meant to come true for a moment.”Sarah Henning, Sea Witch
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.
This novel will have you questioning everything. It is kinda obvious what is happening, some part of you will wish to deny it, the other part will go – I knew it!
Pick this up now if you have not read it yet.
