Everyone knows what happens in the end. A mermaid, a prince, a true love’s kiss. But before that young siren’s tale, there were three friends. One feared, one royal, and one already dead.
Ever since her best friend, Anna, drowned, Evie has been an outcast in her small fishing town. A freak. A curse. A witch.
A girl with an uncanny resemblance to Anna appears offshore and, though the girl denies it, Evie is convinced that her best friend actually survived. That her own magic wasn’t so powerless after all. And, as the two girls catch the eyes—and hearts—of two charming princes, Evie believes that she might finally have a chance at her own happily ever after.
But her new friend has secrets of her own. She can’t stay in Havnestad, or on two legs, unless Evie finds a way to help her. Now Evie will do anything to save her friend’s humanity, along with her prince’s heart—harnessing the power of her magic, her ocean, and her love until she discovers, too late, the truth of her bargain.
To be honest I picked this book because of the cover. I was going through my Libro.fm list and fell in love with this cover! The cover was all I had to base this book off of and it was not what I was expecting. I thought it was going to be a typical retelling and it was- up until a point. And then everything just switches and it kinda blows you away.
I enjoyed most of the book but it was a little slow at certain points and I just wasn't that enthralled with it. However, the last maybe hour or so of the book made up for it. I LOVED the ending!
Short and sweet review! Mostly because I know I’m in the minority for not completely loving this book and because all the things I want to talk about are all at the ending, which would ruin the AMAZING ending for you all. Read it for the ending!!!
