Book Review: Upon A Wicked Tide
If you enjoy a darker spin on fairy tales, Upon a Wicked Tide is for you! Read more about the first book in this beautiful duology by Kate Craft!
Upon a Wicked Tide (Wicked Tides Duology #1)
Publication Date: October 31st, 2022
Genre: Fairy Tale/ Dark Fantasy/ Romance/ Mermaids & Pirates
In a world of sirens, pirates and unspeakable danger, one might crave a quiet life on the Garden Isle…but not this blue-eyed girl.
Upon the death of her guardians, Emerelda Mirabel comes to inherit three curious things:
Not a diary or fable, but something almost sentient. This riddlesome book hums with power, each page offering strange warnings and temptations…Perhaps speaking to a future already written?
Adventure calls to the young captain, a hunger for something more than a simple fisherwoman’s life. Upon her ship, The King’s Arcana, she will sail the eight seas, venturing to strange lands with strangers amongst her crew. But at what cost?
A heartless prince…
Seemingly cursed with no heart, Prince Ryder could not care less about his kingdom, his family or even life itself. But when the king insists his son travel with Emery to find a cure for the affliction, something finally stirs within. Something he cannot explain. Something binding him to the blue-eyed girl.
Dark Fantasy / Slow Burn Romance / Adventure on the High Seas / Fairy Tales / Sirens / Pirates / Mermaids / Cannibals
Upon a Wicked Tide is another amazing read by author, Kate Craft! I have not been disappointed by any of the books that Kate has written. In fact, if anything my love for fantasy books has been awakened again. The world and characters that Kate has built for this book was fantastic.
A female ship captain... yes, please! Emery captaining The King’s Arcana was great to see such a strong female protagonist. Yet, Emery was not the only strong female as there is Winnie. It was nice to see two strong women. Although not to be missed is Prince Ryder. The romance between Emery and Ryder is a slow burn one. I liked it a lot. There was a nice balance between the overall story and the romance. The way this book ended leads me to believe there will be a book two.
