Across the Darkling Sea – I love this cover and it absolutely caught my eye! I loved the idea of a story where magic is forbidden and that pushed a character to flee everything she ever knew in order to stowaway on a ship heading for an exotic destination. Sounded so good I wanted to know more. 😉
Across the Darkling Sea by K. Ferrin
Publication Date: November 12, 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.
