Sea Witch by Sarah Henning : Review

Sea Witch by Sarah Henning

Publication: July 31st

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.
- - -
The rise of Hans Christian Andersen's iconic villainess is a heart-wrenching story of friendship, betrayal, and a girl pushed beyond her limits - to become a monster.

Goodreads' link to the book!

Stars: ✦✦✦.75
So as usual, I'll tell 3.75 things I liked about the book and 1.25 thing I didn't like.

So what did I think?

+1 | The idea and premise is clever and intriguing. I'm just so drawn to fairytale retellings, especially unpredictable ones. 

+1 | Characters. The set of characters were so different and I wanted more

+1  | World and building. The magic and world is unique. It's also told in a way of skipping to the past at times, which by the end made things even more action packed!

+0.75/-0.25 | Entertainment value. It was a roller coaster - that kept me reading.

-1  | The first 25% of the book. Honestly I almost stopped reading, and over the years I've learnt to actually DNF books instead of wasting time, but something kept me reading - and because of the last 25% I am so glad I did!

Read on lovelies,
