    Genre: YA FantasyType: Standalone Book 2 of Sea Witch seriesPOV: First Person – Dual (Female)Rating: Alia was willing to do anything for the man she loved. With the infamous Sea Witch’s help, she walked on land to prove it. But it was an impossible task without risking the consequences and her twin sister Runa would not allow that to happen if she could help it. This book is significantly different from book 1. While book 1 focused more on th...

    Why is it getting a sequel? What else is there? I’ll still read it though.

    Sea Witch Rising picks up right where we left off from Sea Witch. Evie is tethered to her cave of darkness and avoided by the merpeople as per the Sea King. Evie craves freedom from her isolation. Princess Alia comes to Evie to make the forbidden bargain of turning into a human for four days in an attempt to prove that Niklas, the grandson of the original Nik from Sea Witch, loves her. Even though Alia knows that her father would be outraged, she...

    This is the sequel to Sea Witch the backstory on one of the most evil villains of all time from the Little Mermaid. I really enjoyed this sequel way more then book one as i felt that it was mostly telling us what we all ready knew about this tale. This sequel takes what was lacking in book one and throughly different story that we all know. This is why i am liking the new malificent story as we have these evil characters but Disney never really t...

    (Disclaimer: I received this book from Edelweiss. This has not impacted my review which is unbiased and honest.)Sea Witch Rising impresses me with how clever Henning is. Sure, Sea Witch was utterly brilliant, but really Henning outdoes expectations in the sequel. Multiple different re-interpretations of The Little Mermaid, meets a story where the timeline of the first book serves as a legend in the present? So clever! Not only that, but I love th...

    I quite enjoyed Sea Witch... but I loved Sea Witch Rising! Full RTC on Thursday 💙

    'Sea Witch Rising' is the electric sequel to 'Sea Witch', an original and imaginative retelling of The Little Mermaid. You definitely want to read the first book before this one or you'll be completely lost. I absolutely loved the first book and couldn't wait to get my hands on this novel. I have to admit that I had high hopes and expectations going in because of how much I enjoyed the first book. I'm very happy to say that it lived up to anythin...

    ARC provided by the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.Thank you so much to HarperCollins Children's UK for the opportunity to read this prior to release. I cannot wait for my pre-order to arrive. Last year I read Sea Witch and I fell in love.

    E-Arc provided by NetGalley in exchange for an honest opinionI've read the first book of the saga and didn't like it too much, but let me tell you that without a doubt, this sequel is her best book so far. It was an absolutely amazing story that I'm so glad I got a chance to read.To be honest, I wasn't sure what to expect starting this book since I didn't think it needed a sequel.With that said, this book hit all my bells and whistles. Loved it!
  • Tom Chubby
    I am not sure how I feel about a sequel. I thought the end was great and it would be horrible if it was spoiled by another book. Maybe I will like it. But I wonder who will be the hero now with Nik and everyone else we know dead. The story will be set after 50 years I suppose.It's being released on my birthday!!!!!2 more weeks to go!

    *I received a free ARC of this book, with thanks to the author and Amazon’s Vine Programme. The decision to review and my opinions are my own.*Sea Witch Rising is the second book in the Sea Witch series by Sarah Henning. I haven’t read the first book, Sea Witch, and was able to pick up the story easily enough, but given the choice I would suggest reading them in order, as there is a lot of backstory and only the necessary highlights are recap...

    Read my full review here////////Sea Witch Rising brings in a new prince and an old name. Niklas, the grandson of the Niklas in Sea Witch, almost drowns and Alia, a second generation daughter of the Sea King, rescued him. After a time, she fell in love with him. But this book is not about romantic love. It was more about familial love and choosing between right and wrong.
