Sea Witch Rising by Sarah Henning // Book Review

Rating: 2/5 stars
Format: audiobook


“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.

This review is going to be short... and not so sweet.

I hate leaving bad reviews. I state that with every bad review I have to write.

I just really did not enjoy this story. For the first half of the book, it was identical to Sea Witch. Same story. Same issues. It honestly made me not care for this story.

The one thing that this book had going for it is that it had more of a plot than Sea Witch. It just wasn't done well.

This book just seemed undeveloped to me.
