    1. I wasn’t sure about this when I first started reading it, but I’m so glad I carried on! Around the 40pg mark, I became hooked on the plot. It ended up being hard to put down. Very unique take on the classic story of The Little Mermaid. I think people are going to enjoy this one!

    2. So this is from Ursula's POV, but who cares?! Villains are so much more interesting than heroes anyway Kidding :P

    3. OMFG, that synopsis!!! I haven't even read the book yet and I can already feel the heartbreak to come. And though I am never a fan of cover/character models, I don't terribly mind this one. I think it fits well. But anyways back to the synopsis, I'm crying already. ---October 2017 --> May 2018 --> July 2018 Ugh---Wait, this went from October 2017 to May 2018? OMG why!!!?---While I am happy the title is no longer Heartless (so as not to be confused with the Marissa Meyer book coming out thi [...]

    4. EDIT: they changed it! Ha, called it. Has no one talked about how this title is probably a bad idea considering Marissa Meyer's Queen of Hearts story is also called Heartless

    5. Quite the Novel Idea ~ Novel InkI know, I know! First book I write a proper review for in months and it's one that's still months away. How dare I, honestly? But you see, I was always a big fan of the fairy tale (and it's Disney movie version) The Little Mermaid. In fact, the Disney movie was my favorite one for years when I was a child. So I HAD to read this book the moment I got a copy. I was so eager to read a twist on the famous tale that would reveal the origin of the famous villain in the [...]

    6. [✓] Fairytale Retelling[✓] Villainess' POV[✓] Has "Heartless" as the titleI'm not trying to say anything bad though, I'm just saying this book confused me for a moment considering it shares the same name as Marissa Meyer's upcoming fairtale retelling novel as well. Hey, authors can name their books whatever title they want and it'd be fine with me.(Plus I'm still going to read this book anyway because FAIRYTALE RETELLING, DUH.)

    7. I received an e-ARC from Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. Review can be found on *Milky Way of Books*I didn't know what to think when I first requested "Sea Witch". Would I see Ursula in her younger years being a psychopath? Or maybe the human counterpart of her? But NOPE! I got a story of friendship, secret love, and anguish from all the characters involved here! Ana, Evie, and Nik had many layers of emotions and also many secrets to hide! Told from many POVs moving back and forth in [...]

    8. This is a great book hands down. It has very interesting characters who are all very likable, beautiful lyrical writing, and an interesting plot. Even though the plot is a little slow at the beginning it definitely picks and leaves you wondering what will happen next. All the characters are interesting and all of them harbor deep dark secrets. Sea Witch is also a retelling of the Little Mermaid from the villains perspective which was great. Very good read, I highly recommend.

    9. OMG. But but but WHAT JUST HAPPENED?!?!This book totally threw me for a loop and I have to go wipe my feelings off the floor now. It started out a little slow, but maybe I was just feeling impatient because I've been so insanely excited for this.Anyway- Little Mermaid retelling, from Ursula's point of view. Except, you've never heard the story like this before! I can't write more than this right now because there's too many emotions and I'm kinda maybe crying. Just. Add it to your TBR.

    10. SEA WITCH was everything I wanted it to be and more. Hennings' lush prose and smooth storytelling pull you right into this dark story and tighten their grip until you've finished. Her descriptions are spot on and the setting was beautiful. With a big, explosive ending, the book leaves you satisfied even though you know where Ursula's story ends. I highly recommend this book to lovers of YA retellings and fantasy!

    11. A beautiful, haunting tale that I know will stay with me long after the final page. Sarah Henning's writing is beautiful, and I often found myself stopping to reread certain lyrical passages. A must read for those who love lush settings and complicated heroines.

    12. I adored this adaptation of the Little Mermaid. Such a strong story with amazingly built characters and an understanding of where their worlds collided. Sea Witch was brilliantly written with such amazing imagery that I could see the swirls of black and the foam of the Sea. This book shows that love isn’t what you believe it to be and changes cannot be undone, regardless of good intentions. *Will write a more detailed review when launched**Received DRC from Edelweiss for honest review*

    13. As a lifelong Little Mermaid fan, I'm DYING for this book to come out (& bummed that all of the reviews so far are people complaining about how the outdated title is the same as a Marissa Meyer book as 1) some marketing team's now-obsolete decision doesn't reflect on the content of the book in a helpful way and also 2) THIS BOOK IS A WICKED-STYLE STORY ABOUT URSULA; WHAT MORE DO YOU WANT FROM THIS LIFE?). Waiting with bated breath for spring 2018.

    14. Wow! Okay, I'm not going to lie I'm a bit biased because I'm obsessed with everything mermaid! Especially, The Little Mermaid.  Guys, this book cover is gorgeous! This is a story loosely based on The Little Mermaid. Mostly, about the other side of the story, the Sea Witch. We get her background story and how she ends up where she is. What a story it is!At first, I wasn't sure how this was going to go. It took me a little bit to get into it. I was simultaneously worried that I had too high of h [...]

    15. As someone who was raised on fairy tales and eventually graduated up from the Disney classics to the darker Grimm versions and eventually the young adult retellings, it’s always nice to see your favorite stories again and again but regardless of who is telling the story they always hit the same beats of the original story and a happily ever after to seal the deal. That is not the case with this book. ‘Sea Witch’ is a beautifully written origin story of a simple girl who did everything she [...]

    16. I received an egalley of this title via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. Thank you publisher! 2 out of 5 starsThe Sea Witch is a retelling of Disney’s The Little Mermaid that in the end left me wondering what just happened and when authors will stop using the love triangle in their books. It is the origin story of Ursula – the Sea Witch, and it is set in Denmark (which – I guess the author wanted to include because Christian Andersen’s The Little Mermaid takes place there). I [...]

    17. I award this book 3.5 stars.I'm super torn about this book because I felt like it was definitely more creative than a lot of the retellings that I've seen. Plus, it's a retelling about the Little Mermaid, which is my favorite fairy tale. I really enjoyed getting to know the characters and the twist later on was fun to see. And it wasn't a typical story of someone turning bad, which has been the norm for the past few books I've read. The world building was great, and some of the prose is really q [...]

    18. I thoroughly enjoyed this book! I was skeptical at first as I thought I'd always have the Disney version stuck in my head. But this one surprised me. I loved the writing. It was breezy. If I didn't have a toddler, I would have read it all in one day for sure.The world building was incredible. Though i think it lacked just a teeny bit, it was enough to make me feel like I was there.I loved all the characters and their arcs. Though the book was predicable (duh) it was still a fun read and I recomm [...]

    19. I loved this book--read it in one day. The tension, the characters, the plot, the rich language--all soooo good.
