    The Mermaid, the Witch and the Sea will take you on the journey of a lifetime Maggie Tokuda Hall has created characters that I ve never seen before, and then put them into an adventure that feels real than real life, and twice as unpredictable I wanted to live in the world of this book forever, and I can t stop obsessing about the rich tapestry of pirates, mermaids, witches and conniving nobles who inhabit it The Mermaid, the Witch and the Sea might just remind you why you fell in love with adventure in the first place, and change how you think about the genre forever I envy anyone who s getting to experience this incredible book for the first time.

    Thank you to NetGalley and Candlewick Press for providing me with an ARC in exchange for an honest review.DNF 30%.For a long time I ve assumed the reason I dislike most fictional romances is that I m a bitter lesbian sick of having heterosexuality shoved in my face everywhere I turn That may still be the case, however, The Mermaid, the Witch, and the Sea proves that I can dislike fictional lesbian romance just as much as I dislike fictional straight romance.Because that was my number one problem with this book the romance It was poorly developed and clich First, a quick background We have two protagonists, Evelyn and Flora Evelyn is a wealthy member of the Imperial ruling class shipped off to marry a man she s never met There s our first clich Flora, called Florian, dresses as a boy edit as Isabel kindly informed me in the comments, view spoiler by the end of the book Flora identifies as genderfluid hide spoiler

    My official blurb for this book is An utterly romantic and breathless adventure that wouldn t let me sleep until I d devoured every last word It s a journey of love, magic, and self discovery unlike any I ve ever read My unofficial blurb is that no word of my official blurb is remotely an exaggeration it s one of the most compelling books I ve read in ages, and I absolutely could not put it down I did not expect such an incredible gender self examination in such a wild adventure, or for the romance to be so incredibly swoony, but this book does so much and achieves so much Definitely for fans of Amy Rose Capetta, Emily Skrutskie, and E.K Johnston.

    This book is SO GOOD I wasn t expecting it to be amazing as it is and I m blown away The diversity, the representation, the plot, the characters, everything about this book is 10 10 I did assume from the cover that this was middle grade, which it is definitely not This book isn t slow at all and the action starts right away, which I loved It s fast paced without being rushed and the plot is so engaging, I would being reading for hours and never get bored I loved the characters so much I enjoyed the diversity and representation so much I can t remember the last time I read a diverse fantasy YA book thatI enjoyed so much.The writing was wonderful and the concept was fantastic I honestly have nothing negative to say about this book, I enjoyed it so much It s been such a long time since I ve loved a YA book so much and The Mermaid, the Witch, and the Sea is everything I needed from a YA book and I highly recommend picking up a copy.
