Disclaimer. The following is nothing but gushing praise for the wonderful Emma Hamm. It's so gushy I should be embarrassed but I'm not because this book is truly that wonderful.
Firstly, I want to say thank you to Emma for providing me with an ARC of Bride of the Sea, I think I would have burst if I had to wait for my pre-order to be delivered in April! Secondly, to get straight to the point, if you are a fan of romance, fairytale retelling or mythology you must buy this book!
I discovered Emma's work late last year when I saw some bookstagrammers sharing about her then upcoming book, Heart of the Fae, a retelling of Beauty and the Beast merged with Irish mythology. After reading the synopsis I placed my pre-order instantly. I adored Heart of the Fae, and it's sequel, Veins of Magic so when I heard that she was tackling the Little Mermaid next I knew I had to read it. That said, as much as I loved Heart of the Fae and Veins of Magic, Bride of the Sea blew them out of the water. Pun intended. It's crazy that in such a short period of time it's possible to see the growth in Emma's work, her ability to weave a captivating tale continues to grow book after book.
I'm so glad that I found Emma's work when I did, I am certain that I will love each and every book from her in the future. I'm already salivating at the prospect of her next work in progress!
