Tales of a Redheaded Sea-Witch (Black Depths #1)
by J.E. Hunter
Genre: YA Paranormal
Release Date: April 2014

Summary:

Death, power, transformation.... 

When Nessa's dad dies, the last thing she's expecting is to lose everything else too. But when her hair suddenly 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, including selkies, mermaids, pirates, 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. 

Challenges arise at home and at school. Nessa struggles with her lessons, her friendships, and her burgeoning romance. She has no idea who she is, where she belongs, or that the danger lurking in the shadows is about to tear apart her world all over again... 

Tales of a Redheaded Sea-Witch is the first book of the Black Depths series. This stunning series of books follow Nessa, a sea-witch. The second and third books, Broken Tide and Dark Shores, are also available on Amazon, as well a Black Depths novella, Windbound, which features the siren, Amynta, from the Black Depths series.

My review 

Well this is a super cool book. I love mermaids and sea witches and I think this book was well written and had its own unique twist on supernatural water beings. Nessa is having a rough deal. Everyone loves the little mermaid and thinks of Ursula as evil- well she was- but what if not all sea witches were evil. There's always good and bad and I loved seeing the other side. 

 The characters are great. They are supportive of each other, well written, and believable with great feeling and you'll connect with them. Nessa goes to an island to learn about her new status in life. I'm also a little awe struck by Amytha and Shia. I can't spoil things though. Though I'm still not completely sure of Ceasar. But pirates are awesome lol! 

I loved the writing and how the magic was done. Poor Nessa had a shock when she finds out but it was described and discovered so well. But sometimes I wanted to slap Nessa for her choices and I want more on the pasts of some of the characters. But I am hoping to see more of these characters and the story line!! 4 PAWS!!
