Magic is forbidden in Brielle, but that never stopped Evelyn. Until Now. Because Evelyn has discovered she is magic, and now she is running for her life.
Her only hope is on an island cloaked in shadow, an island of dark magic and even darker beasts. An island warlocks call home.
Evelyn’s friends have turned against her, her own mother tried to kill her, and the place she calls home has banished her. Hidden away in the belly of a riverboat, a stowaway, her journey begins.
Across the Darkling Sea is book one in a serial series. Each book is roughly 50,000 words or about 150 pages. To emphasize, this is a serial series, meaning it’s one story that stretches across multiple books.
This book is really something special and totally unique. I don't think I've ever read something like this. :)
So Evelyn lives in Brielle, only place in this world, that forbids magic. That doesn't stop her though. Every time she travels with her father she gets little bit of magic, until she gets special seed. She plants it carefully and on the day we meet her, goes to check it. But something is wrong, the raft she made for it is broken and the seed gone. Before she knows it, she is in the middle of the city, her mother trying to kill her and friends abandoning her. Town witch saves her and explain, she's been living the same day over and over, because she is changeling. Made of magic and place instead of the real girl. She decides, that she will find the warlock who did this to her. Every day she has to write everything that happen in a special book, because in the morning she knows nothing.
The world is really interesting, full of magic and mystery. The story has so much potential and I hope that there will be next book. :)
Not a fan of ending though, it was a bit to abrupt. I understand that, this is the format of the book, but I just want to read more... like now. :)
