Waiting On Wednesday .... Sea Witch Rising

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pick is Sea Witch Rising by Sarah Henning

** Spoilers for Sea Witch **

Here is the Goodreads synopsis
“The Little Mermaid” takes a twisted turn in this thrilling sequel to villainess origin story Sea Witch, as the forces of land and sea clash in an epic battle for freedom, redemption, and true love. 

Runa will not let her twin sister die. Alia traded her voice to the Sea Witch for a shot at happiness with a prince who doesn’t love her. And his rejection will literally kill her—unless Runa intervenes.

Under the sea, Evie craves her own freedom—but liberation from her role as Sea Witch will require an exchange she may not be willing to make. With their hearts’ desires at odds, what will Runa and Evie be willing to sacrifice to save their worlds? 

Told from alternating perspectives, this epic fairy tale retelling is a romantic and heart-wrenching story about the complications of sisterhood, the uncompromising nature of magic, and the cost of redemption.
Sea Witch by Sarah Henning was is one of my favourite villain origin stories. It captured the heart of story it was reimagining and put a sympathetic twist on a character that had always fascinated me.

I was delighted when I heard that there would be a sequel and that it seemed to follow the events of The Little Mermaid (at least the Hans Christian Anderson version) a little more closely.  I cannot wait to see where Evie's story goes next and see her take steps to become the villain we love to hate.

Expected release date - August 6, 2019
