Rise Of The Sea Witch

Rise of the Sea WitchRise of the Sea Witch by Stacey Rourke

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I couldn’t put this book down! I’m a huge fan of fairytale retellings and mermaids in general, so when I was approached with the ARC of this title…I said yes without hesitation.
The story is an origin story of the famed sea witch that we all know from the Little Mermaid tale. Much like Disney’s take on Maleficent, Rourke weaves the sad tale of a misunderstood character who was tasked to take on too much, too fast. Vanessa lives in the shadow of her brother and is haunted by some pretty vicious ghosts from her past. The author does a beautiful job of creating a fantastic story with well-rounded characters and tense, action-packed scenes. I read this book in a day and was left with a book hangover for days afterward. Highly recommend to anyone who enjoys fantasy, fairytales, and adventures under the sea.
