Tales of a Redheaded Sea-Witch
Death, power, transformation….
When Nessa’s d
ad dies, the last thing she’s expecting is to lose everything else too. But when her hair sudd
enly turns electric red, and her estranged grandma turns up on her doorstep ready to haul her off to an isolated island, that’s exactly what happens. In one day, Nessa losses her mother and her friends, and learns that she’s a redheaded sea-witch with magical powers. She’s one of many Neptunians
– magical beings blessed by the sea – which includes selkies, mermaids, and sea nymphs. Nessa doesn’t want to live on an island, she doesn’t want to be a sea-witch, and she certainly doesn’t want to be hunted by humans who harvest Neptunians for their magical powers. But if Nessa wants to live, she’ll have to accept her new life and everything that comes with it, including a witty pirate named Caesar, who just might break her heart.
Love, Fear, Blood…
Learning she was a redheaded sea-witch was just the beginning of the adventure. Now, after a tough autumn facing down a dark enemy, Nessa and her friends must live through an even darker winter. A short trip to Vancouver shows Nessa that she hasn’t yet mastered her magic. Being behind in her learning puts Nessa at a disadvantage—a hard lesson she only learns after being attacked and almost killed. When tragedy strikes, Nessa must put aside her personal life and heartbreak to fight against new enemies in order to keep the Neptunian colony safe. Nessa’s journey becomes one of blood and sacrifice. As the days grow dark and long, hope begins to dwindle and the cost of saving those she loves begins to rise.
