What a week, what a week, I am so glad it is halfway over (though not looking forward to next week Monday, as my stitches have to be removed shivers). Welcome to a new Waiting On Wednesday, this time featuring a book with a cover that just gives me a serious case of 😍😍.
It is a book that tells us about Ursula (though for now she is known as Evie), you know the awesome evil villain from Ariel? Squee! I am so happy that she is finally getting a book of her own, telling her story, showing us more about this wonderful villain. I can’t wait to read her story. To see her magic. To see her fall in love.
Just a few more days until it comes out, and I can’t wait to get my hands on it.
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.
