Reviews Sea Witch

  • Korrina (OwlCrate)
    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!
  • Anissa (FairyLoot)
    What a great read! I really enjoyed this.
  • Bee {Quite the Novel Idea}
    Quite the Novel Idea ~ Novel InkI know, I know! First book I write a proper review for in months and it's one that's still months away. How dare I, honestly? But you see, I was always a big fan of the fairy tale (and it's Disney movie version) The Little Mermaid. In fact, the Disney movie was my favorite one for years when I was a child. So I HAD to read this book the moment I got a copy. I was so eager to read a twist on the famous tale that wou...

    I received an e-ARC from Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. Review can be found on *Milky Way of Books*I didn't know what to think when I first requested "Sea Witch". Would I see Ursula in her younger years being a psychopath? Or maybe the human counterpart of her? But NOPE! I got a story of friendship, secret love, and anguish from all the characters involved here! Ana, Evie, and Nik had many layers of emotions and also many secrets to ...

    SEA WITCH was everything I wanted it to be and more. Hennings' lush prose and smooth storytelling pull you right into this dark story and tighten their grip until you've finished. Her descriptions are spot on and the setting was beautiful. With a big, explosive ending, the book leaves you satisfied even though you know where Ursula's story ends. I highly recommend this book to lovers of YA retellings and fantasy!
  • Crescent Moon
    This is a great book hands down. It has very interesting characters who are all very likable, beautiful lyrical writing, and an interesting plot. Even though the plot is a little slow at the beginning it definitely picks and leaves you wondering what will happen next. All the characters are interesting and all of them harbor deep dark secrets. Sea Witch is also a retelling of the Little Mermaid from the villains perspective which was great. Very ...

    Wow this book is amazingly written. And I'm trying to form more words to express my love for this book but I'm just at awe that I can't form any at the moment. I will post a more detailed review later but I highly recommend this one. And I'll most definitely reread it soon.
  • Caro Herrera
    OMG. But but but... WHAT JUST HAPPENED?!?!This book totally threw me for a loop and I have to go wipe my feelings off the floor now. It started out a little slow, but maybe I was just feeling impatient because I've been so insanely excited for this.Anyway- Little Mermaid retelling, from Ursula's point of view. Except, you've never heard the story like this before! I can't write more than this right now because there's too many emotions and I'm ki...

    A beautiful, haunting tale that I know will stay with me long after the final page. Sarah Henning's writing is beautiful, and I often found myself stopping to reread certain lyrical passages. A must read for those who love lush settings and complicated heroines.

    *I was allowed to read an advanced copy of this book from Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review.*Wow-I love anything to do with mermaids, sea witches, and royalty. This story has it all…PLUS friendship, loss, family, betrayal, revenge, and love. Even if the love story is unexpected…well, a LITTLE bit expected. The bad guy is unexpected... kinda. The revenge plot is great. I loved EVERY word of this book. I couldn’t get enough.There was...
  • Kim Chance
    It's been a long time since a book kept me up to all hours of the night, but this hauntingly gorgeous debut by Sarah Henning was too captivating to put down! I adore villain origin stories, so I went into this with high expectations. SEA WITCH did not disappoint! Henning's prose was breath-taking--there were several places where she stopped me in my tracks with a single sentence. Her writing style is lovely! I couldn't flip the pages fast enough ...
  • Nemo (The Moonlight Library)
    This review was originally posted on The Moonlight LibraryI received this book for free from Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.Sea Witch was marketed as a prequel to The Little Mermaid meets Wicked, and since I love both, I immediately requested to read and review this. It’s the story of Evie, a young Danish girl secretly a witch, and what she’ll do to save the ...
  • NerdyBookishBeauty
    I adored this adaptation of the Little Mermaid. Such a strong story with amazingly built characters and an understanding of where their worlds collided. Sea Witch was brilliantly written with such amazing imagery that I could see the swirls of black and the foam of the Sea. This book shows that love isn’t what you believe it to be and changes cannot be undone, regardless of good intentions. *Will write a more detailed review when launched**Rece...

    Wow! Okay, I'm not going to lie.. I'm a bit biased because I'm obsessed with everything mermaid! Especially, The Little Mermaid.  Guys, this book cover is gorgeous! This is a story loosely based on The Little Mermaid. Mostly, about the other side of the story, the Sea Witch. We get her background story and how she ends up where she is. What a story it is!At first, I wasn't sure how this was going to go. It took me a little bit to get into it. I...

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book! I was skeptical at first as I thought I'd always have the Disney version stuck in my head. But this one surprised me. I loved the writing. It was breezy. If I didn't have a toddler, I would have read it all in one day for sure.The world building was incredible. Though i think it lacked just a teeny bit, it was enough to make me feel like I was there.I loved all the characters and their arcs. Though the book was pre...
