Up from the Sea is a fascinating prequel novella that introduces the reader to the setting and some background history for the full length novel, Whose Waves These Are.
I was absolutely captivated by the beautiful storytelling style of the author. Savannah and Alistair were characters that I liked immediately and I loved the journey of discovery that they went on to unearth what was true and what was myth. I’m looking forward to reading Whose Waves These Are soon!
