Across the Darkling Sea
Publication date: November 12th 2016
Genres: Fantasy, Young Adult
Across the Darkling Sea is the first book in the new serial fantasy series Magicfall, by K. Ferrin!
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.
Evelyn is fascinated by all types of magic but she lives in a place that absolutely forbids it. When she travels with her father, she always brings back some magic with her. She discovers she is a changeling when her mother and friends all try to kill her. She has been living the same day over and over with no memory of it. She soon discovers that she is not actually Evelyn but that she is made of magic. She sets out to find the warlock who did this to her but with no memory of what happened the day before, she has to write everything down.
I really enjoyed this book although I thought the ending was a little abrupt. It left me wanting more and I can’t wait to get my hands on the next book.
