The sea isn't easy but Irsa has never known any different With Aislin by her side she must face a wicked witch defy a prince and maybe gain all she ever wanted a happily ever aft I enjoyed this story but the missing commas words and uestion marks; excessive typos; and dubious character motivations at the end really ruined it for me It would have been at least 4 stars with an editor As it is I'm giving this 3 stars because it was at least an original take on Ursula Just needs a lot of editorial polish

Tales of the Sea Witch No creature under the sea is born dark; some just lose themselves Irsa's name was lost long ago to the obscurity of being labeled a villain Born with enough magic to boil the ocea Disclaimer I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book All thoughts and opinions are my own Thank you to Reedsy Discovery and Lou Wilham for this free copy All uotes in this review are taken from the Advanced Reader Copy and may change in final publicationI know that there have been a few versions of the sea witch origin story and some of them can be pretty similar which is fine but I think that this is one of my favorite ones with a couple of exceptionsFirst of all I hate that in this one we don’t even know if Irsa is her real name because apparently it was forgotten in history This is what the prologue said and it literally broke my heart because the sea witch is always vilified without any form of humanity attached to herHer name – lost long ago to the vagueness and obscurity of being labeled a villain – but for our purposes we will call her IrsaI mean even whatever her real name was something that her grandmother didn’t find particularly enjoyable or agreeing so maybe it’s a good thing that history doesn’t remember the name she was given by her own mother But just completely writing her name out of history because the world only sees her as a villain nothing just breaks my heart She didn’t start off as a villain and in fact her story before she became this villain that everyone sees her as was just heartbreaking I’m surprised she didn’t turn into a “villain” long ago We’ve seen others do it but we still remember their names right?Anyway that’s just part of the plot that I was sad about but I think that’s what made me feel for Irsa even and not write her off as just another villain that wants to tear the world apart Which I think was great on Wilheim’s part for bringing some humanity to the situation and really make us feel bad for her as the years go byI know that when I first read that Irsa was assigned to be Calypso’s apprentice when apparently the “best” or “most powerful” witch in all of Alon never took on an apprentice in years or something I was hoping that things were going to be great But nope of course not Because why would a villain’s origin story be full of something good right? I think the only good thing that happened in Irsa’s life growing up was her friendship with Aislin and I’m so glad they had each otherNo every brush of Aislin’s hand every smile on her lips made Irsa’s heart flip flop She couldn’t explain the feeling nor did she try toI love their relationship and I was so glad that Aislin was able to see that something was wrong with Irsa and wanted to help save her somehow She didn’t believe Irsa trying to cover for her abuser and helped her come up with a plan to get out of that situation without blaming Irsa for being in it Which can be so hard for people to realize that they do so it was really nice to see this reflected in this novelI would say that the second part that I didn’t like was that Irsa was abused after having to deal with the first tragedy in her life not to mention the POS “father” that was mentioned a little bitUghBut other than that I really enjoyed this short novel and I think it was a really interesting take on the sea witch origin story Irsa is pretty damn powerful and I think that if she was able to truly foster that power without being abused by someone she had to trust with her life then who knows? Maybe she could have been one of the good guys But villains are always fun to read about right?
