Synopsis: All Hanna Euli wants is to become a proper witch – but unfortunately, she’s stuck as an apprentice to a grumpy fisherman. When their boat gets caught up in a mysterious storm and blown wildly off course, Hanna finds herself further away from home than she’s ever been before.

As she tries to get back, she learns there may be more to her apprentice master than she realized, especially when a mysterious, beautiful, and very non-human boy begins following her through the ocean, claiming that he needs Hanna’s help.

Why?: I've loved every book and short story set in the world of The Assassin's Curse, so I was so excited when I learned that Cassandra would be revisiting the world in a new duology. I can't wait to learn more about this incredible world. 

Expectations: Since I enjoyed the first two books and the two short stories so much, I have really high expectations for this book. I think it will have more magic than the other two, but will be just as exciting and lovely and fun and mysterious as The Assassin's Curse books. I just can't wait to start it! 

Judging a book by its cover: I love this cover so much! It's so different from most other YA covers out there, and I think it just screams "fantasy" and "mystery," which is awesome! I'm also glad that it's different from The Assassin's Curse covers, but still ties in nicely and would look so pretty next to the other books. I would so pick this up if I saw it on a shelf!
