I love anything to do with oceans, water of any kind and mermaids, so just the cover for Tales of a Redheaded Sea-Witch by J E Hunter is right up my alley.
I can hardly wait to dive in!!!
Tales of a Redheaded Sea-Witch (Black Depths #1)
by J.E. Hunter
Genre: YA Paranormal
Release Date: April 2014
Anyone that knows me, knows I love anything to do with our oceans, seas, lakes…water of any kind…and mermaids, so when I saw Tales of a Redheaded Sea-Witch, I had to have it. The cover had me hooked and the more I read, the more I became involved with Nessa’s life.
Nessa fights everything after her father’s death, but the move to her grandmother’s house on an island in the middle of nowhere, was the last straw. Myself, I would love to be there, meeting the new “people” in her life, mermaids, sea nymphs, pirates, orcies, sirens and vodiani. We will meet some even stranger and not so nice creatures, as Nessa learns to control her new powers and adjust to her new life.
Nessa not only needs to learn how to deal with the normal things a teenager deals with, school, friendships, misunderstandings, and young love, she will also have to learn how to develop her rare gifts as a sea witch and use them to protect herself and others.
I love Nessa’s feistiness and her determination to overcome her best friend’s resentment of her new pirate boyfriend. It’s moments like this that make the characters seem real and I am able to relate to them.
The fantasy elements were woven into the human elements so well, I was able to get lost in the pages and become a part of Nessa’s world. The surrounding characters all played an important part and she will learn what it’s like to work as a unit, a team, where sacrifice will be done in the name of love. She matures and develops at a believable pace.
Supernatural and paranormal creatures are high on my reading list and Tales of a Redheaded Sea-Witch by J E Hunter did not let me down. I have read numerous mermaid stories, but not many about a sea witch and some of the other magical creatures J E brought to life. I am eager to keep on reading about their world and I think you will be too.
I received a copy of Tales of a Redheaded Sea-Witch from J E Hunter in return for an honest review.
Death, power, transformation….
When Nessa’s dad dies, the last thing she’s expecting is to lose everything else too. But when her hair suddenly turns electric red, and her estranged grandma turns up on her doorstep ready to haul her off to an isolated island, that’s exactly what happens. In one day, Nessa losses her mother and her friends, and learns that she’s a redheaded sea-witch with magical powers. She’s one of many Neptunians—magical beings blessed by the sea, including selkies, mermaids, pirates, and sea nymphs. Nessa doesn’t want to live on an island, she doesn’t want to be a sea-witch, and she certainly doesn’t want to be hunted by humans who harvest Neptunians for their magical powers. But if Nessa wants to live, she’ll have to accept her new life and everything that comes with it including a witty pirate named Caesar, who just might break her heart.
Challenges arise at home and at school. Nessa struggles with her lessons, her friendships, and her burgeoning romance. She has no idea who she is, where she belongs, or that the danger lurking in the shadows is about to tear apart her world all over again…
Tales of a Redheaded Sea-Witch is the first book of the Black Depths series. This stunning series of books follow Nessa, a sea-witch. The second and third books, Broken Tide and Dark Shores, are also available on Amazon, as well a Black Depths novella, Windbound, which features the siren, Amynta, from the Black Depths series.
