In the ancient river kingdom, touch is a battlefield, bodies the instruments of war. Seventeen-year-old Mia Rose has pledged her life to hunting Gwyrach: women who can manipulate flesh, bones, breath, and blood.

Not women. Demons. The same demons who killed her mother without a single scratch.

But when Mia's father suddenly announces her marriage to the prince, she is forced to trade in her knives and trousers for a sumptuous silk gown. Only after the wedding goes disastrously wrong does she discover she has dark, forbidden magic—the very magic she has sworn to destroy. (Goodreads)

Um, does this book sound great or what??
There is definitely not enough information for this book,
but already I'm hooked. I can't wait to check it out!!

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.

The rise of Hans Christian Andersen’s iconic villainess is a heart-wrenching story of friendship, betrayal, and a girl pushed beyond her limits—to become a monster. (Goodreads)

Ah, but I LOVE mermaid books so much!!
And this one sounds really awesome.
Mermaids. Princes. MAGIC.
Count me in!!

Do both of these books sound great, or what??
I am really looking forward to reading them both,
and hopefully I can get to them soon!

  1. Oh nice!! Your second pick is particularly GREAT! Lol! Love me a good fairy tale retelling!

    Here's my WoW

    Have a GREAT day!

    Old Follower :)

  2. HEART OF THORNS was so so good. I loved it!! It was lyrical and magical and gah! I need book #2! I hope you enjoy it as well!

    Sea Witch left me a touch disappointed--i don't want to dash your dreams but it's less of a mermaid story and more of a land-maid tale.

    Great picks!

  3. Great picks! I like the sound of both and they are new to me, so I will have to add them to my TBR list.

  4. Both books sounds awesome :D But gosh, I have been meaning to read Sea Witch forever.. still haven't gotten to it. Ugh. Hope you loved it, if you've read it :)


Thanks for stopping by! :)
