Sea Witch Rising by Sarah Henning is the YA Fantasy Retelling of The Little Mermaid!
““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.”
In this sequel, we follow the famous mermaid instead of the villain. And the fun continues in another epic, well-written story.
I did like the first book better than this one. I felt more of a connection to the characters and the plot in general.
This one features a girl trying to save her twin from her own, mindless heart. She knows there’s something wrong and tries her best to stop for fate from happening.
There are tons of twists and turns that surprised me throughout the book. It’s a love-story gone wrong with a quest to reverse the curse.
I gave this one 4 out of 5 stars and recommend the series as a whole for YA Retelling lovers!
